Astrology

Consult an astrologer to know more about your stars and your place in the firmament. And if there is a problem somewhere, the solution is not far either. Nepalis have been doing it for centuries and many will vouch it works.

Astrology also has its origin in the Vedas, the major source of virtually everything for the Hindus, written thousands of years ago. Mesh (Aries), Brish (Taurus), Mithun (Gemini), Karkat (Cancer), Simha (Leo), Kanya (Virgo), Tula (Libra), Brishchik (Scorpio), Dhanu (Sagittarius), Makar (Capricorn), Kumbha (Aquarius) and Meen (Pisces) are the 12 signs of the zodiac, and in Nepali they are called Raashi.

Astrology plays a significant role in a Nepali person’s life especially during important transitions in life like marriage, having children, moving to a new house, working on a new business etc. The moment a child is born in Nepal, the exact time of birth is noted and given to the astrologer, who according to the position of the different planets in the solar system at that precise moment prepares a Cheena (horoscope).

Astrologers are consulted on various occasions like rice feeding, sacred thread and weddings. Almost all religious festivals in Nepal are governed by astrological readings.

Tika during Dashain, Bhai Tika during Tihar, etc are occasions when the astrologers determine the auspicious hours for these festivities to take place. They also forecast the solar and lunar eclipses and their impact on people.
