What is Astrology?
When a person is born, his/her destiny is decided. It is known to be supposedly written based on the birth time and the position of the planets, stars at that time.
“ The study of how the positions of the stars and movements of the planets have a supposed influence on lives, events and behavior of the person is astrology. ”
There are basically two distinct types of Astrology, namely the Vedic Astrology and Western Astrology. While the Vedic Astrology is about the Sidereal Zodiac - a fixed zodiac, with a certain Nakshatra (Planet) in the background, the Western Astrology deals with Tropical Zodiac - it works on a movable zodiac based on the orientation of Earth to Sun. However, whether its Vedic or Western Astrology, the chief purpose is the same: to eliminate problems and maximize happiness.
Vedic Astrology - Jyothisha is one of the divisions of the Hindu Veda. This ancient tool helps a person to discover oneself and to strategically plan for the future. Even though the Tropical or Western chart can provide a straightforward explanation, the Nakshatras, Dasha System and Divisional Charts in Vedic Astrology provide a much deeper insight. Vedic astrology can be very effective and accurate yet a bit more complex.
