What Is Vedic Astrology?

Vedic astrology, also known as Jyotisha and Hindu astrology, is the astrology of India originating from the Vedas. The astrology of India, when practiced properly, has powerful predictive and protective value, profound spiritual implications, and sophisticated remedial measures to uplift the client. Based on the sideral Zodiac, Vedic astrology provides many varied tools for the aspiring practitioner. Vedic astrology is one of the oldest and most revered forms of astrology in current practice.

CVA President's Message 2017

The Council of Vedic Astrology is the oldest, non-profit Vedic astrology membership/education organization in the West. We are allied with the ICAS, the Indian Council of Astrological Sciences, the oldest Vedic astrology membership organization in India, founded by the late Dr. B.V. Raman. We are a professional community of practicing Vedic astrologers that represent a plurality of schools in the Vedic community. For two decades the CVA has provided continuing education and certification of Vedic astrologers through our co-sponsorship of educational symposiums and events, but most importantly through of diverse community of nationally and internationally recognized CVA professional practicing astrologers and their educational programs spanning 12 countries. Please visit our Teachers and Practitioners page on this website to see a complete list of our professional community.
