5 thoughts on “How does Vedic Astrology compare to Western Astrology ?

  1. Vedic Astrology is very good and so is Western Astrology. It depends on what system you believe in. I have alwasy been in Western Astrology but am planning to seriously check out Vedic Astrology out of curiousity.
    Some have good result with Vedic just like some have good results with Western. I think, by knowing both, it probably would give good insight generally since you are using the same tools, but with different interpretations.

  2. Vedic astrology is highly regarded in the astrological community, they are very good at what they do and they have been doing it for a very very long time. I like learning about both.

  3. in short:

    The Lagna in Jyotish system:

    Differs about 23 degrees from the Rising sign calculated by Western astrologers. The Lagna changes with the time of the day and the place. So people belonging to all the 12 signs are born on the earth at an any given moment.

    Sun Sign In Western Astrology : In Western System of Sun Sign, all the people born in one month belongs to the same sign.

    Just like Western Medicine and Aurvedic (Herbal) Medicine, two different systems of treatments for the same sickness or symptoms.

    The Hindu system of astrology uses the concept of fixed Zodiac. The western system uses the concept of moveable Zodizc.

    The “ayanamsa” is the distance or the difference at present moment of time between the fixed and movable Zodiac. The Hindu system of astrology is known as Nirayana System

    Vedic astrology gives a better view of:
    1. A person’s karmic tendencies
    2. When such tendencies are likely to manifest for that person.
    The times of life events are shown through a detailed system of planetary time cycles, called “dashas.” There is no corresponding method in Western astrology.
