India is the land of Vedas. This is the place where astrology originated and developed. Indians have long relied on astrology as part of their daily lives, whether for agricultural purposes, social celebrations, or starting a new project. On the occasion of India’s 75th Independence Day, here are some little-known facts about the practice of astrology.

One – India got independence in a happy moment

The time of India’s independence was greatly influenced by astrology. Ujjain J. Hardevji and Suri Narayan Vyas Babu Rajendra Prasad, who would later become the first President of India, knew that the day was astrologically unlucky when the British rulers decided to grant independence to India on August 15, 1947. When they came to know, the British decided to release the kings. Just let them choose any hour of the day, Hardev insists, and it’s midnight.

Astrological factors were taken into account while deciding the date and time of India’s Independence Day, which was fixed on 15 August 1947 at 12:01 AM. At that time the Moon was in a very favorable Pushya Naktra. In all the maps, Pushya is considered as the king. At midnight, Abjit Mahurta, which is an excellent moment to start any big endeavor, was in effect. At that time, the fixed sign of Taurus – which symbolizes a strong foundation for the nation – was rising.

Two – Most of the Indian Prime Ministers belong to watery zodiac signs

So far, India has seen a total of 15 prime ministers (not counting their re-elections), most of whom belong to zodiac signs that have a strong water element. Among them, four prime ministers – Gulzarilal Nanda, VP Singh, Chandrasekhar and PV Narasimha Rao – belong to the Cancer sign. The other two, Jawaharlal Nehru and Indira Gandhi, belonged to Scorpio and Morarji Desai was a Pisin.

Third – The famous Red Book was compiled in British India during World War II

Pandit Roop Chand was a revenue officer in Punjab, British India, who authored the current version of Lal Kitab from 1939 to 1952. He worked as an Accounts Officer in the Defense Department of British India and retired in 1954. .The Red Book is unique. In the field of Vedic astrology, for the first time a book has described how certain planetary positions in one’s horoscope should also be reflected in the line of his hand. In other words, the book is on Astro-palmistry, i.e. it combines the two different arts of palmistry and jyotsha. The volumes of Lal Kitab were also given red binding because these books contain the ledger book of one’s life. In fact, Lal Kitab orders in very clear terms, that every book related to this poem should be bound in non-glossy, red color.

Four- The national calendar of India is Loni Solar

The Hindu calendar is known as the lunar calendar. According to the moon, there are 12 months and the year is 354 days long. However, every third year, 33 days are added to make an extra lunar month of 29 days. The remaining four days are arranged here and there. Two main calendars are in common use in India today, the Vikram Samvat with a zero point of 57 BC and the Shaka Samvat with a zero point of 78 AD. All these are used to calculate the dates of Hindu festivals like Diwali and Holi. A national calendar based on the Saka era, with Chitra as the first month and a common year of 365 days along with the Gregorian calendar was adopted on 22 March 1957.

Five – Astrology and the national flag of India

The national flag of India shows saffron color on top. It is the color of Mars and predominates the element of fire. The colors of saffron and Mars, together with the element of fire, represent strength, courage and glory. The colors of saffron and yellow are quite similar, so it reflects Japan’s extraordinary spirituality, intelligence, kindness and generosity.

Mercury’s favorite color is green. The color combination of green and mercury represents steadfast thoughts, wisdom, reason and expression. White color is controlled by the moon. Moon is also associated with mother and for us India is motherland. Moon is also in charge of intellect and emotions. Together, the moon and the color white convey the characteristics of a dark culture and tradition.
