Spiritual astrology is a bit different from conventional astrology. Rather than tell you, “You’re an Aries, so you’re confident and outspoken“, spiritual astrology focuses on your journey through life. Will you meet your soul mate, how will you affect others and how will they affect you? These are the kinds of questions this branch of astrology can provide guidance on. It deals with the forces that carry you along on your ultimate path.
You’ll gain insight into issues like:
- Finding your soul mate
A spiritual astrology report will include the position of the sun, moon and each planet at the time of your birth. Like a typical horoscope sign chart, this will give you a deeper insight into your personality. However, a spiritual report looks at all the aspects in your chart to get an overall picture of your destiny and help you see the areas of your greatest potential.
By studying a spiritual astrology report, you’ll learn how to hone in on those characteristics that make you unique, as well as how to set yourself up for success in life y playing up those characteristics. The path the world sets you on isn’t always the right one; you have to learn how to manipulate situations and use your special personality traits to nurture yourself and those around you. It’s good to know what you’re working with, and the spiritual report will give you the guidelines you need.
Astrology has been the oldest science. The ancients looking at the stars above them felt their influence and infinity. In the ancient great civilizations, like Egypt and the Mayas, astrology played always an important role. As a scientist I will prove with 100% certainty, how accurate method astrology is to give an impression of the potential, talents, possibilities, but also about the lessons to learn and the challenges we will encounter. But of course this is only true if astrology is done in a scientific way.
Spiritual astrology Most of us do not know why we have taken this birth, why we are leading these lives, what happens after death and what the ultimate goal of our lives is. We are all ordinary people without knowledge of the very fundamentals of human life. But a spiritual person knows answers for all these questions.
We are all descended from a huge reservoir of energy, called ‘Paramatma’ or the ‘Supreme soul’. The Supreme soul has divided itself into small quantities of energy and that individual speck of energy is called ‘Jeevatma’ or ‘Bodily soul’. This Jeevatma creates a physical body and starts doing some karma (actions) and these actions will bring it different experiences which finally expand its level of consciousness. When Jeevatma realizes that there is nothing to know more, it will reach to higher consciousness where it identifies itself with the Supreme soul. This is called ‘Moksha’ or ‘Salvation’. We are all now in the form of Jeevatma and our mission in this world is to attain salvation. For a normal person, it takes more than 1, 00,000 births to reach this state. A yogi or a spiritual person reaches this state in 3 years by doing meditation for 8 hours a day.
In Bhagavad Gita, the Jeevatma is represented by Arjuna which resides in the physical body which is depicted by a chariot. This chariot is driven by 5 horses which represent the 5 senses. The Paramatma is Lord Krishna who guides Arjuna to realize that he is Jeevatma and his goal is to reach Paramatma. Krishna holds the reins which are nothing but the activities of mind. The battle is between Kauravas (demonic nature) and Pandavas (divine nature) – these two are the two sides of the mind. Winning the battle is possible only by controlling the senses and purifying the mind through yoga. Then only Jeevatma can attain the state of Paramatma. Such a person who is in the path of becoming Paramatma is called ‘Spiritually enlightened person’.
“Prayaatnaad yatamanastu yogi samsuddha kilbishah
Aneka Janma samsiddha sthato yaati pararaam gatim
Tapasvibhyodhiko yogi jnaanibhyopi mathodhikah
Karmibhyaschaadhiko yogi tasmaad yogi bhavaarjun”
A spiritually enlightened person, who practices yoga diligently will be relieved from the worldly attachments, attains perfection of several lifetimes and finally attains the ultimate goal (Moksha).
Such a person is superior to the persons who practice penance and lead austere life. He is superior to the Vedic scholars. He is also superior to the persons who perform Vedic ceremonies for gaining worldly comforts. Therefore, O Arjuna, become a spiritually enlightened person!
A spiritual person knows that he is not the physical body, but the Jeevatma. This Jeevatma does not need any bodily pleasures and hence he is not interested in doing the worldly duties. He concentrates on the purification of mind and soul. For this purpose, he needs a ‘Guru’ (divine guide). A Guru is a person who already attained the ultimate goal of becoming the Supreme soul. Guru prescribes certain procedures like reciting mantras, doing yoga and meditation, etc. Finally, the person’s consciousness increases to find out that he is the Supreme soul, the only one thing pervading the entire Universe.
In Astrology, it is possible to know whether a person craves for worldly pleasures or whether a person is in the process of reaching spiritual heights. Also, it is possible to know whether a person can get a Guru or not.
Planets to be taken under consideration
Spiritual growth is indicated by the planets: Jupiter, Moon, Sun, Uranus and Neptune. Among all these planets, Jupiter is very important and it dominates the entire horoscope of the spiritual person.
The planet Jupiter is considered the most benefices of all planets in the sense that it gives material wealth and also spiritual progress. Jupiter represents Guru (divine guide), religion and philosophy. Jupiter also represents the rewards gained by the person because of his good actions in the past births.
Moon represents psychology and emotional state of the person. If Moon is receiving good aspects in the horoscope, then the person will have stable mind and will be able to achieve good grip on his mind which is first step in the spiritual growth.
The planet Sun represents the soul’s strength and soul’s interest. It also represents the type of experiences the soul had opted for before it took the human body.
Uranus gives an interest in mysticism, telepathy, clairvoyance and freedom of the soul. It represents the intuitive link between the Jeevatma and Paramatma. It also shows the unique work or purpose of the soul in the present birth.
Neptune represents an interest in the matters of life after death, clairvoyance, spiritual healing and strong spiritual practices. It represents the spiritual wisdom acquired by the person from the past births.

Analysis of Bhavas
The Ascendant represents the self, physical body and psychology. Spiritual person’s thinking will be always inward. He thinks about the inner himself which is represented by the Ascendant.
The 5th bhava in the horoscope represents soul (Jeevatma), the mantra power and the mind. The spiritual person controls his mind by adopting techniques like yoga and meditation (dhyana). He will clear his past karmas with mantra recitation. Finally his mind will stabilize and the person will understand that he is the soul (Jeevatma) but not the physical body. 5th bhava also represents the universal love.
The 9th bhava in the horoscope represents higher spiritual knowledge, philosophy and the soul’s expansion. The practices represented by 5th bhava lead to the spiritual wealth gained from the 9th bhava.
The 12th bhava represents salvation (Moksha), soul’s journey after death, past life actions (Karma) and the number of births still to take.
