You might be a bit surprised when you first heard the term “Vedic Astrology”. You had never thought that Astrology has branches or types. What you simply knew was that Astrology assumes and attempts to interpret the influence of celestial bodies—the stars, the planets, the sun and the moon—on human affairs.

Curious, you must have did a little research on the subject. With the multitude of websites discussing about it, you wish there was a vedic astrology online or something where you could gather the information you need from just one site. Anyhow, you stumbled on this:

Unlike Western Astrology, Vedic Astrology uses a different Zodiac. Surprise! Yes, there are two types of Zodiacs: the tropical upon which our popular horoscope is based, and the sidereal. There is a lengthy technical discussion on the difference between the two, but to make things easier, the tropical zodiac starts in March, while the sidereal zodiac starts in April. This means that in the latter, the sign of Aries will be recognized as Pisces, the previous sign. In this manner, all the signs in the tropical astrological chart will move backward into the previous degrees of the same or earlier sign.

Also known as Hindu Astrology, Vedic Astrology is deeply rooted on the cosmological, psycho-spiritual precepts of the ancient Indian culture. For instance, the so-called four pursuits of life as outlined in the Vedas (spiritual bible) are: Dharma, Artha, Kama, and Moksha. The Sanskrit term Dharma means the purposeful unfolding of self in life; Artha reflects one’s attitude toward the accumulation of money and the resources necessary to fulfill the self; Kama refers to the rightful fulfillment of the desires of the self; and Moksha refers to the desire of every soul to enlighten the self from the confinement of this world. These pursuits are reflected upon when consulting the Vedic astrological chart. The spiritual infrastructure of the Vedas lends a distinctive perspective to a Vedic astrology reading that could not be found in the current western practice.

You have just started learning about Hindu Astrology, and like any grader, you must be excited to know more. Seriously, a website say, vedic astrology online would be most welcome. With this fast-paced lifestyle, people hardly have time to research in the library, more so approach a Vedic Astrologer to discuss about the subject or get a Vedic reading. People want information with a click of a mouse and in seconds, this is where vedic astrology online would be very convenient.

Hmmm, just a thought…in case nobody wants to initiate this vedic astrology online project, maybe you should do the job. That would surely keep you busy the next days or months.
