What is Astrology?
Astrology is the study of light as seen from Earth in the cosmos. According to Vedic culture, the light falling on Earth from various sources like the Sun, the Moon, the planets and even the stars cause certain impacts on the physical and psychological existence of human beings. Astrology is the study of these effects and using them to predict the future of a person. For this, a horoscope is used which is the marking of the positions of the various cosmic bodies during the time of birth of the person.
When was astrology developed?
As such, Vedic astrology is believed to be around 5000 years old based on radioactive tests conducted on the earliest texts referring to Vedic astrology. However, the basis of Vedic astrology is Vedas. Vedas are information 'as received' from a higher source. This information was passed on from one generation to the next through oration. Scripts representing these sounds and words were developed at a much later date. This means the antiquity of Vedic astrology is as old as the history of human civilization itself.
What is a horoscope?
A horoscope is an ancient form of birth certificate. In the horoscope of a person, the position of the various cosmic bodies relevant in Vedic astrology is noted down along with the time and place of the birth. From the data in the horoscope, various life predictions on different areas of life can be made like wealth, career and especially marriage. A horoscope is the only document in human history which can make accurate predictions on matters of love and romance.
What is a Zodiac?
A Zodiac is a 360-degree sky as seen from Earth. Note that on any given night we see only half or 180-degree sky. For the full 360-degree map of the sky, one needs to observe and record the various 'lights' in the sky for at least one full year. This Zodiac is divided into 12 rasis or houses, with each house having its distinguishing characteristics. Traditionally the beginning of the Aries sign is seen as the 0-degree beginning point of the 360-degree Zodiac as per Western Astrology. In Vedic Astrology, this changes from region to region.
What are the key planets in Astrology?
Including the Sun and the Moon, there are nine planets in Vedic Astrology. In addition to the traditional planets from Mercury to Saturn, two shadow regions or the lunar nodes, where the paths of the Sun and the Moon as seen from Earth intersect each other are also given planetary status due to the impact these energy centres have on the life of a person. The ascending node is Rahu, and the descending node is Ketu. However, Western Astrology follows no such shadowy planets, instead, the 'modern' planets of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto find a place there.
What are Zodiac Signs?
The 360-degree Zodiac is the physical representation of the sky as seen from Earth with the positions of the various relevant lights marked on it. The 360-degree Zodiac chart is divided into 12 Houses or Signs of 30 degrees each. Each of these Houses or Signs has a character particular to its own. A sign can be watery, fiery, airy or earth sign. The 12 signs are Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces. In Vedic astrology, these 12 signs are called Rashis, and their names vary from region to region.
How are Horoscope Signs different?
Each of the 12 signs possesses a character distinct from the others. The birth sign of a person is the sign to which a person was born into. Based on the birth sign a person can develop several distinguishable features. Aries born are fiery and competitive. Taurus-borns are relaxed and enjoy good food and nature. Gemini-borns are erratic and curious. Cancerians possess psychic abilities. Leos are proud people. Virgos have a practical approach to life. Librarians are perfectionists. Scorpios have emotional powers. Sagittarians have a quest for knowledge. Capricorn is perseverance and dedication. Aquarians are humanitarians whereas Pisces is intuitive and sensitive.
What are the Astrological Houses?
Astrological Houses are the 30-degree divisions of the 360-degree Zodiac. There are 12 Houses or Bhavas as it is known in Vedic Astrology. The duration of the houses is measured by the time spent by the Sun or the Moon in one house. The Sun spends approximately 30 days in one House, which roughly corresponds to 12 months or signs in a year. The Moon on the other hand spends 21/2 days in one House. Western Astrology follows the position of the Sun to determine Birth Houses, while Vedic Astrology follows the Moon to determine the Birth Bhava. The birth house or bhava is taken as the first house in the chart.
The 12 Astrological Houses and their meaning.

What are the Astrological Aspects?
Astrology aspects define the relationship between planets in the chart. There are five different kinds of astrology aspects. Conjunction - Two planets are said to be in conjunction when they are positioned in the same sign in the chart. When this happens, the qualities of the planets get added to one another Sextiles - Sextiles happen when the planets are 60 degrees of two signs apart. Here the planets share a reasonably good relationship as neighbours. Squares - Squares are formed when the planets are three signs or 90 degrees apart. As squares, the planets act as enemies of one another. Trines - A trine happens when the planets are four signs 120 degrees apart in the chart. Here the planets share a healthy relationship. Oppositions - Opposition happens when the planets are placed on opposite signs or 180 degrees apart in the chart. The relationship between the planets is hostile, though not as much as squares.
