Astrology is the study of the correlation between the positions and movements of celestial bodies and life and physical processes on Earth. Though some astrologers work with stars and constellations, western astrologers work with the Sun, the Moon and the planets (including Pluto) within the Solar System.

Bharati Sood an Astrologer based in Navi Mumbai practices astrology based on Vedic (Hindu) and Western principles.

It is the belief that the alignment of stars and planets affects every individual’s mood, personality, and environment, depending on when he was born. Jyotisha (or Jyotishyam from Sanskrit jyotiṣa, from jyótis- “light, heavenly body”) is the traditional Hindu system of astrology, also known as Hindu astrology, Indian astrology, and more recently Vedic astrology.

Vedanga Jyotisha is one of the earliest texts about astronomy within the Vedas. Western astrology is founded on the movements and relative positions of celestial bodies such as the Sun, Moon, and planets, which are analyzed by their movement through signs of the zodiac (twelve spatial divisions of the ecliptic) and by their aspects (based on geometric angles) relative to one another.

According to Vedic astrology (the astrology of ancient India), the reason it works is that the positions of the planets and stars at the moment of your birth reveal the map of your life and the results of your “karmas” from past lives. Nakshatra (Sanskrit: नक्षत्र, IAST: Nakṣatra) is the term for lunar mansion in Hindu astrology. A Nakshatra is one of 28 (sometimes also 27) sectors along the ecliptic. Their names are related to the most prominent asterisms in the respective sectors.

The word Horoscope comes from the Greek word Horoscopos, which means hour watcher. Today the word horoscope is used to describe the forecast made based on the chart that has been erected. With the use of astro science, a horoscope can be erected for a person, a business, a city, or a nation. A chart is made for each Sun sign in which the Sun is put on the ascendant. That is, a chart is made where the ascendant is zero degrees Aries, zero degrees Taurus, etc. That chart is then compared to the transiting planets.

A person who writes Sun sign horoscopes does have to be proficient in astrology. Your astrology chart holds the key to your personality and path. A birth chart—also called an astrology natal chart—is a map of where all the planets were in their journey around the Sun (from our vantage point on earth) at the exact moment you were born.

It can help you pinpoint your Achilles heel, as well as your glory. What’s more, studying your birth chart can help you transcend your weaknesses and maximize your strengths. When you consider this, it soon becomes apparent that the benefits to studying your horoscope — or anyone else’s — are priceless.
