Vedic astrology is a noble science of the Vedas era. This was founded, researched and developed by the Maharishis of the Vedic era. Among them, Aryabhatta, Maharishi Parashara, Varaha Mihira, Garga and Kalidasa are known for their contributions. The origin of this science can be traced back up to 4000 years.
Vedic astrology calculates only 8 planets, namely the Sun, the Moon, Mars, Jupiter, Venus, Saturn and two gloomy planets, Rahu (the dragon’s head) and Kethu (the dragon’s tail). The Indian school of Vedic astrology recognizes 27 constellations from Aswini to Revathy. The planets move under 12 zodiac signs that cover the entire sky, from Aries to Pisces. In various parts of the country, astrologers have their own methods to derive astrological solutions.
