indian-horoscope-vedic-signs


Also called Jyotish, the Indian horoscope was created over 6,000 years ago in India. Compared to the astrology we know in modern times, there are more differences than similarities. The position of the stars in the West is tropical and synchronizes with the seasons. Soon, Aries, who begins the zodiac cycle, marks the beginning of spring in the Northern Hemisphere. In Indian astrology, on the other hand, the system is sidereal, in which the stars serve as a parameter. One thing to note is that both are the same, and both the Western and Indian zodiac have twelve signs. However, there is a difference even within this similarity: if you are Aries, you may not be Mesha (the first sign) in Vedic astrology. This also happens with the ruling planets. Instead of twelve stars in our horoscope, only Mars, Venus, Mercury, Saturn, and Jupiter, in addition to the Sun and Moon, take turns among the signs.
