Jyotisha (astronomy and astrology)Source: academia.edu: Tithikarmaguṇa in Gārgīyajyotiṣa
Jyotiḥśāstra (ज्योतिःशास्त्र) is a text from a classical body of literature on the topic of Hindu astrology, known as jyotiṣa, dating to the medieval period of Classical Sanskrit literature. Pingree classifies as jyotiḥśastra (treatises on jyotiṣa) manuscripts on astronomy, mathematics, astrology and divination, and estimates that about 10% of surviving Sanskrit manuscripts belong to the category.
Jyotisha (ज्योतिष, jyotiṣa or jyotish) refers to ‘astronomy’ or “Vedic astrology” and represents the fifth of the six Vedangas (additional sciences to be studied along with the Vedas). Jyotisha concerns itself with the study and prediction of the movements of celestial bodies, in order to calculate the auspicious time for rituals and ceremonies.
Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Jyotiśśāstra (ज्योतिश्शास्त्र) refers to the “astral lore ”, as explained in the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.23. Accordingly as Brahmā narrated to Nārada:—“[...] on hearing the enquiry of Satī Śiva was delighted and He narrated them with pleasure in their entirety for raising the worldly creatures. [...] The duties of sons, wives etc. and their greatness, the imperishable system of Varṇas and Āśramas, the medical lore, and the astral lore (viz., jyotiśśāstra), all beneficent to worldly creatures were explained by him”.
The Purana (पुराण, purāṇas) refers to Sanskrit literature preserving ancient India’s vast cultural history, including historical legends, religious ceremonies, various arts and sciences. The eighteen mahapuranas total over 400,000 shlokas (metrical couplets) and date to at least several centuries BCE.
