Vedic Astrology: What Is Your Sign and Planet?

There are many differences between Vedic astrology and our more commonly known system practiced in the West. Vedic astrology is also known as Hindu or Jyotish astrology. This particular branch of astrology is prominent for its accuracy and complexity, we’re here to give you an insight into this ancient Indian practice, which was originally used by religious leaders and linked to medicine and chiromancy. This is the place to be to learn about Vedic astrology!
Contents:

The twelve zodiac signs of Vedic astrology (rāśi) are identical to those of western astrology and the meaning of their Sanskrit name is identical or very close to that of their English names. They are also characterized by a zodiac element (fire, earth, air, water) and a zodiac modality.


Background information on Vedic astrology

Vedic Astrology has been practiced for thousands of years. The earliest writings can be found in the Vedas - ancient spiritual texts from the Hindus - these are the oldest books known on earth, believed to be between 5000 and 8000 years old. The Indian name for this astrology is Jyotish, which means "science of light", because it's the science of observing the celestial bodies that reflect their energy and light on Earth, and consequently influence the course of human events.

Ganesh, the God with the elephant’s head, is also the God of astrology. Western astrologers use sky maps in circular forms, whereas Vedic astrologers use square shaped cards. Vedic astrologers divide the 360 degrees of the zodiac into 27 lunar bases.

As a rule of thumb, Vedic astrology focuses on the positions of the moon and the ascendants, rather than the sun.
