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

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.
