filched intro to Hindu / Vedic Astrology

The Hindu/Vedic Zodiac

"This curiosity [Astrology] flourishes, and stimulates one to learn Astronomy ... Now, this Astrology is a foolish Daughter ... But dear Lord, what would happen to her Mother, the highly reasonable Astronomy, if she did not have this foolish Daughter? The world, after all, is much more foolish, indeed is so foolish, that this old sensible Mother Astronomy is talked into things and lied to as a result of her Daughter's foolish pranks ...

"The mathematician's pay would be so low, that the Mother would starve, if the Daughter did not earn anything. If formerly no one had been foolish enough to hope to learn of the future from the sky, then, Herr Astronomer, you would not have gotten so clever as to think that the course of the heavens should be made known for God's honor and glory. In fact, you would have known nothing of the course of the heavens."

-- Johannes Kepler




Vedic Astrology is the ancient Indian science of astrology perfected over 7000 years ago. Earliest mentions of Vedic astrology come in the Vedas, preceded by details of this divine science being revealed by lord Shiva to his spouse goddess Parvati.

According to many other sources Vedic astrology was never created by human and rather was revealed to mankind by lord Brahma who in his infinite wisdom is the only god amongst gods and humans to truly know the future.

On earth Vedic astrology as many people know has been perfected & interpreted by great astrologers like Vaharamihira, Sage Jaimini, Kalidasa and many great saints & holy person.

Amongst other amazing aspect about Vedic astrology, the most impressive is the Dasa System (Exclusive to Hindu Astrology) where predetermined periods are designated to the nine planets and a detailed interpretation is available at birth.

Besides the Nakshtra interpretation is the most superior and sophisticated method of interpretations. Vedic system is also the only reliable system to offer remedies to malefic planets, which has its first mention in the Atharva Veda.

We at dedicate ourselves to follow the principals of Vedic Astrology without diluting or mining the procedures to give you the best interpretations under the Vedic astrology to the best of our ability.

What is a house?

According to older Hindu texts, the words signs and houses fall on each other, but the count of the signs is always made from Aries which is the first sign. If we say a planet is in the first sign, it means that he is in Aries. If we say, it is in the fifth sign, it will be in Leo. If we say, it is in the twelfth sign, it will be in Pisces because Pisces is the last and the twelfth sign. We must remember that when referring to a sign we always count Aries as the first and then proceed in the regular order of the signs.

But a house begins from the ascendant. We must first know which is the sign ascending at the particular moment at a particular place. The Earth is globular. It is like a globe with the sky all around. There is no part of the sky which is not to the east of any locality of the Earth. We can explain this further by giving a practical example. The Sun always appears to be somewhere on the ecliptic. In fact, he is not on the ecliptic; it is the Earth which is on the ecliptic and as viewed from the Earth, the Sun appears to be in line with some place on the ecliptic. Now this Sun at any time appears in the east, in some part or the other of the Earth. So we may state that as the zodiac is a circular ring in the skies, though in fact it is elliptic, going all round, some part of the ring, i.e., the zodiac is on the eastern horizon somewhere.

Now suppose that at a particular time the sign Leo is rising at the eastern horizon. Then Leo will constitute the first house Virgo the second house, Libra the third house, Scorpio the fourth house, Sagittarius the fifth house, Capricorn the sixth house Aquarius the seventh house, Pisces the eighth house, Aries the ninth house, Taurus the tenth house, Gemini the Eleventh house and Cancer the twelfth house. Now suppose that the Sun is n Aquarius. So we say the Sun is in the seventh house or setting in the western horizon.

If suppose Scorpio was rising at New Delhi. Then Scorpio will be the first house, Sagittarius the second house. Capricorn the third house and so on; and the Sun being in Aquarius he will be in the fourth house.

The following signs being in opposition at 180º, to each other are called opposition signs:

Aries is in opposition to Libra and Libra to Aries
Taurus is in opposition to Scorpio and Scorpio to Taurus
Gemini is in opposition to Sagittarius and Sagittarius to Gemini
Cancer is in opposition to Capricorn and Capricorn to Cancer
Leo is in opposition to Aquarius and Aquarius in Leo
Virgo is in opposition to Pisces and Pisces to Virgo

So we must remember that the sign rising to the east at a particular time depends upon the time, date, month, year and the longitude and latitude of the place.

The latitude is very important because the duration of a sign rising differs from latitude to latitude.
