Vastu and Astrology 6
Vastu Shastra is a branch of astrology. Knowledge of Vastu Shastra is incomplete without the knowledge of Astrology. A learned Vastu practitioner always needs astrology. In Vastu Shastra, it has been mentioned that there is a connection between a direction and a planet. So, for a Vastu practitioner, it is essential to have the knowledge of quality, property and nature of a planet. Knowledge of astrology is essential to have the knowledge of Muhurt for solemnisation, Bhoomi Poojan (worshipping the plot of land), digging plinth and foundation laying ceremony, installation of gate and house-warming ceremony (Griha Pravesh). It is also essential to know the good and evil effects of Muhurt. Analysing the reasons behind the problems and the effects of two families of the same category living in two houses equal in nature, we find that there is a difference between the Muhurtas of house warming ceremony and horoscopes of the two. We have to reap whatever our horoscopes have for us and what we had sown in our previous births. We can lessen our hurdles with the help of Vastu favourable to us, but we cannot remove them. Vastu and astrology might be the supplement of each other. It is easy to find out the solution if the astrological aspects are also considered along with Vastu to ward off hurdles in life.
