Vedic Astrology is believed to have been conceived by the ancient wise and holy sages while in a state of super-consciousness which allowed them to take cognizance of aspects of life that lie beyond the realm of time and space, beyond past, present and future. In this super-conscious state, they recognized the effect of the energetic rays of the planets as reflectors or transmitters of light energy. These solar and planetary radio-like waves were seen to bear influence on everything animate and inanimate, affecting humans on both biological and psychological levels. It is said that the sages observed and experimented with their observations in order to codify into rules the formulations which ultimately became the laws that Jyotish is even today practiced in accordance with.
