Vedic astrology is a precise science that maps the configuration of celestial bodies in the sky as well as in the human life. It is an ancient science that has been practiced on the Indian subcontinent for over 10,000 years. The knowledge of vedic astrology was initially transmitted one-on-one from Guru to student verbally. About 5,000-7,000 years ago, this sacred science was documented in written format to benefit following generations. This sacred science has been preserved and transmitted across centuries with great precision and integrity. So profound is the science of astrology that all successful ancient civilizations knew how to read the sky and map out their daily lives.
Vedic astrology is based on sidereal zodiac and maps 9 planets through 27 fixed constellations in the sky. These 27 constellations are further categorized into 12 zodiac signs. Based on the zodiac sign that was rising on the eastern horizon during birth, the orientation of the 12 signs zodiac signs is specific for each individual. For example, if the sign of Virgo was rising in the east when you were born then Virgo becomes your 1st house, Sagittarius your 4th house, Taurus your 9th house, Leo your 12th house and so on. The planetary configurations are not only studied in the natal chart (main birth chart) but also in several divisional charts that focus on a particular area of life, By now you I hope you can already appreciate the precision with which vedic astrology is studied. Vedic astrology is indeed an ancient branch of quantum physics!
