Astrology is philosophical as Evolutionary Astrology is used by philosophers and Seers. To discern the evolutionary status of the native, Evolutionary Astrology is used.
The four functions of Mind are Manas, Buddhi, Chitha and Ahamkara.
Manas is the processing Mind
Chitha is the storage of impressions in the Subconscient
Buddhi is the intellect
Ahamkara is the Ego
In Astrology, Manas is ruled by the Moon
Chitha by by Venus
Budhhi by Mercury and Jupiter
& Ahamkara by Mars, Sun and Saturn
The ten heads of Ego (Ravana) symbolically are
Kama – Lust
Krodha – Anger
Mada – Pride
Moha – Avarice
Matsarya – Jealousy
Raga – Attachment
Manas – Processing Mind
Buddhi – Intellect
Chitha – Subconcious Mind
Ahamkara – Ego
We have to remove the ten heads of the Ego to attain to Self Actualisation.
The Self is Bliss Absolute ( Ananda ), Absolute and Infinite ( Poorna ) &
Non-dual ( Advaya )
