What Is Your Indian Zodiac Sign? - Your Date Of Birth Reveals Yours

A look at this ancient practice

Also known as ‘Hindu Astrology’ or ‘Vedic Astrology’, this ancient practice is similar to Western Astrology because it is based on the same 12 zodiac signs, however the dates of the signs are later than in Western Astrology. Unlike Western Astrology, which focuses on the influence of the stars, Vedic Astrology provides people with a solution to the problems that they encounter. Indeed, Vedic Astrology is also a great way to find out more about yourself and make the best decisions for the future.

Background of Indian Astrology

Indian Astrology dates back 5000 years. Legend has it that the God ‘Brahma’ taught the practice to several wise men, who then went on to guide humanity. Indian Astrology, is referred to as ‘Jyotish’, which means light and was the first form of science used by mankind! Likened to a lamp burning in the darkness, which guides people and hands them the keys to their destiny.

Mesha expresses creation and the emergence into incarnation. It is therefore connected to self-recognition and self-esteem. This is due to the reality of their inner world, filled with powerful impulses manifesting in many directions. The role of Mesha or Aries natives is to feel all these impulses in the incarnation. Their function is to initiate the embodiment, not necessarily to finish what they undertake.
