About Vedic Astrology

Vedic Astrology is an ancient system of India that studies the planetary effect on our destines.
Vedic Astrology differs from Western Astrology in two main issues:

  1. Vedic Astrology is the spiritual science and is based on the law of karma, reincarnation of the soul, and liberation as the supreme goal of life.
  2. Vedic Astrology uses Sidereal Zodiac and Western Astrology uses Tropical Zodiac.

The Sidereal Zodiac is the original Zodiac that was used by ancient astrologers. It is based on the actual constellations - Aries, Taurus, etc. It does consider the precession of the Equinoxes.
Because of the precession of the Equinoxes, the point of the Vernal Equinoxes changes relatively to the fixed stars approximately 1º in 72 years moving backward relatively to its original point (0º of Aries).
If in the Tropical Zodiac the time of Vernal Equinoxes and the position of the Sun at the time of Vernal Equinox serves as the point of its orientation (the beginning point), in the Sidereal Zodiac the actual signs of Aries, Sagittarius, and Leo (a Triangle) serve as the main points of its orientation.
The starting point of the Tropical Zodiac doesn’t change with time; the starting point of the Sidereal Zodiac constantly changes because the position of the Earth-Sun relatively to the stars changes with time.

Although the names of the Tropical Signs stay the same (Aries, etc), these signs are already not identical with the fixed stars.

The positions of the planets in Tropical and Sidereal Zodiac do not coincide.
