It’s a known fact that the birth chart or horoscope of a person is based on his or her birth details. It is the blueprint of planetary positions in the sky at the time of birth that decides the individual destiny. But why only birth details are chosen to cast a birth chart or horoscope. Why not some other parameter?
The answer lies with panchtatvas. The Physical body of any living being is composed of 5 elements. The synchronization of these five elements generates the life force for an individual.
Aakash or Ether element is also known as space. The space- where one moves freely. In physical body this element is present in the hollow cavities of the body and it fills the void.
Jala or Water element is responsible for maintaining fluidity in body.
Prithvi or Earth element provided shape to organs and structure of the body by binding different cells together.
Agni or fire element provides energy to body thus helps in growth and sustenance.
Vayu or Air – is the prana or breath-the basic force that ignite every movement in and of the body.
An awaited child in Womb has blend of 4 elements- Akash, Pritvi, Jala and Agni. The fifth element Vayu or pran or breath remains missing in an awaited child. Dependent on umbilical cord a child don’t breathe on its own in womb. Thus the mix of panch tatvas is not complete yet.
As soon as awaited child arrives in this world, Vayu tatva enters the body in form of breath and completes the Panch tatvas.
Vayu, Pran or breath gives rhythm to independent bodily movement of a child. With this first breath outer environment influence and planetary forces starts generating impact on child which by now is a complete living entity. Thus this is the sole reason why birth details are pivotal for any astrology related reading.
