Tajika astrology is a branch of astrology that developed between the Indians and the Persians between the 7-12th centuries. It is the best evidence yet that Indian and Western / Persian astrology has a long history of cooperation, in spite of the political, scientific and cultural differences - and in spite of eventually using different zodiacs.
We will explore the fascinating practices and techniques that developed at that time, which are clearly a hybrid of both systems and cultures. In Tajika astrology, the precise transit work still seen in Western astrology is applied to a sidereal zodiac, with a special "dasa" system for annual charts and other considerations.
We will examine the main aspect types, applying and separating aspects and precise degrees of orb and how to apply these principles to Varshaphal (annual charts) and Prashna (art of a question) chart readings.
We will also examine the important Indian and Vedic texts which shows the transition from sidereal to tropical astrology in Persia at that time, and the influence of Indian astronomy/astrologers on Persian scientists such as Al Kwarizimi, Masha Allah, Al Biruni and more.
