Maps are useful when we're lost and need direction. Just like we consult maps for navigating through space, our Vedic astrology chart is a map for navigating through time. The great sage Varahamihira wrote over 1500 years ago, "There is no better boat than a horoscope to help a man cross over the troubled sea of life." Sometimes we get so blown off course that we don't remember who we are and what our purpose is. It's times like these that there's nothing more valuable than perspective, which the astrology chart provides.
An astrology chart is a snapshot of the moment of birth. That moment is so powerful that our whole lives can be explained from it. Our charts reveal the intricacies of our karma, our soul's journey through time, and the multi-faceted purpose of our incarnation. Those that associate astrology with fanciful superstition and fortune telling are missing the sacredness of astrology. Why sacred? Because the moment of birth reveals the great mysterious workings of the Divine, and when we consult the astrology chart we commune with the divine mind of God. To return to our charts, to that moment of birth, is like a meditation practice where we return to our breath, to the core of our being, to our souls. K.N. Rao writes in Astrology and Karma:
"Astrology was meant to become a spiritual discipline, the finest method of developing dharana or one pointed concentration leading to deepest meditation."
