About Solar system and Astrology
« on: November 21, 2015, 07:38:53 AM »
Hi All,

I have a confusion of assuming the planets in our solar system to our astrology.
1.Why everyone assumes that only our earth is like a female "Bhumi" while any other planets have male names "sani" "bhudha" "angaraka" ...
2. Why don't we consider our earth in our astrology.

Thanks and Regards,
Kalyan.

That's because Earth is named after goddess "Bhumi" (Bhuma devi or Bhudevi), wife of Varaha (one of Lord Vishnu's Avatars).  Reason behind such naming is explained in the story of Vishnu's third incarnation. Similarly there are other mythologies explaining naming of each planet.

2. Why don't we consider our earth in our astrology.

Incorrect question or statement. In fact Earth is given of high importance in astrology, Rising Ascendant is derived from Eastern horizon (Earth's circumference). Ascendant is the most important part in astrology. Navagrahas are considered to influence any earthly life.

@Kalyan,

To add to what @Arietus has said..

1. Our Ancestors treated all the 'Givers' / 'Approachers' as Males and all the 'Receptors' / 'Attractors' as Females.. U can very well cross-check this with everything.. Sky, Rain, Sun, Light have been considered as Males.. Earth, Land, Moon, Beauty, Arts have been considered as Females.. Since Earth is the 'Receptor' in Astrology and other Planets are in the Space (Sky) and are 'Givers', they've mostly named them like this..

There are few Female Names also based on other Planets like 'Chandra', 'Mangala', 'Surya Kumari'..

Even though, they have considered Earth as a 'Receptor' and all the other Planets as 'Givers' and named them like that, they've attributed Planets equally only.. Sun, Mars and Jupiter are considered to be Male Planets.. Moon, Venus and Rahu are considered to be Female Planets.. Mercury, Saturn and Kethu are considered as Eunuchs or Planets with neither Male or Feminine attributes..

2. Astrology is purely based on the Placements (Angles) of other Planets from the Earth.. So Earth is the core Centre of all Calculations.. Since we, the Human Beings are all living in Earth, we are taking Earth as the Base, and calculating everything based on Earth only.. So how can Earth come in picture?

If we say Sun is in Aries, it means Sun is between 0 - 30 Degrees from the Axis of Earth.. Aries means 0 - 30 Degrees from the Axis of Earth.. Similarly if we say Jupiter is in Leo, it means Jupiter is in 121 - 150 Degrees from the Axis of Earth..

Since @Arietus has answered based on Shastras, I've tried explaining in a Logical Point-of-View.. Hope both our Answers would've served the purpose of yours..

All the very Best! May God bless U!!

To throw more light on what @Arietus answered for the 2nd Question and give more clarity..

In Astrology, Positions of all the Planets are calculated based on "Earth's Revolution" and the Position of Lagna is calculated based on "Earth's Rotation"!

I hope almost all of U Guys know the difference between the "Rotation" and "Revolution" of the Earth..
"Rotation" means rotating itself and it takes 24 hrs, which is ultimately called as a 'Day'..
"Revolution" means revolving around the Sun and it takes 365.25 Days, which is ultimately called as a 'Year'..

Lagna is calculated based on the Position (Angle) of Sun on that particular Day with respect to the Rotation of Earth.. Planetary Positions are calculated based on their position with respect to the Centre of Earth at that moment..

All the very Best! May God bless U!!
