Astrology is an ancient science that tells about the relationship between astronomical phenomena and events in the world. Most cultures have recognised the significance and impact of astronomical events. Ancient Rishis in India developed elaborate system of analysis of astrological events and occurrences with detailed very long time celestial observations. This includes observations of the Sun, the Moon, the stars and teh planets. These celestial bodies appear to have great impact on the events of the Earth impacting each individual. This study is Astrology. There are several methods in Astrology in different parts of World. However, the most vivid and details analysis is provided by Indian classical Astrology. It provides a detailed analysis of various aspects of an individual's personality and life events and predict future events in one's life based on planatory positions at the time of one's birth and their current positions. The astrological facts are no more a matter of statement. It requires deep analytical calculations based on the properties and location of each celestial object. Accordingly, astrology is not just a science but also an art and a philosophy. Hence it is more appropriate to call it Astrosophy.
Vastu Shastra is another stream of knowledge dealing with the traditional Hindu system of architectural design of all dwelling units. The stream basically describes design, layout, measurements, ground preparation, space arrangement and spatial geometry. It also provides for ways of comfortable housekeeping and life style. There are sutras of Vastu are seen even in the Vedic period. The concepts combine with the Astrological facts to provide a detailed analysis of how a good living can be achieved at home, in offices or workplaces or leisure homes. The modern architecture science owes much to Vastu Shastra and has rather comfortably aligned its horizons with modern scientific knowledge base. Vastu Shastra has since developed not merely for the art of living but a full philosophy of living so as to call it Vastusophy.
Both, Astrosophy and Vastushophy need deep understanding of all natural and celestial objects, their specific effect on individuals as per their location and intensity. Once analysed, the present, the past and the future can be understood and lived accordingly.
