The astrology derives the relationship between the astronomical happening and the events of human life. Way back to third millennium BCE, the roots of astrology are found. Since then the developments in the astrology and impact of different culture in it could be envisaged. We could broadly see three main forms of developments in astrology. These are the Indians, Chinese and the Mayans. The Indian astrology is based on the Vedic astrological systems. The moon sign determines the effects of the past events on your life and also portrays the present life aspects. It also forecasts the future events based on the moon Vedic sign. Astrology helps you to ascertain how planets connect to the changes in our temperament and our life.
In Vedic astrology you would come across the names of the signs in Sanskrit. The Signs are Masha (Aries), Vrsabha (Taurus), Mithuna (Gemini), Karka (cancer), Simha (Leo), Kanya (Virgo), Tula (Libra), Vrscika (Scorpio), Dhanus (Sagittarius), Makara (Capricorn), Kumbha (Aquarius), Mina (Pisces). Each of these sign has its own characteristic features. People born in the particular period can ascertain their Vedic Moon sign. These signs predict the psychological aspects and the personality of a person. The planetary cycles are noted and calculated and these are called “dashas”. The planets which are the Grahas are responsible for destiny and considered as lords of karma. The astrology is a guidance provided to a person to understand the penchants in a better manner.
There are differences in Vedic astrology and the Western astrology. Though there are some similarities in them such as signs, planets and houses are the same in both but there is difference in the Vedic chart. In the western astrology it is the wheel and in Vedic chart you would find a square. Understanding the chart and the terms in the chart is very essential to follow it. In the Vedic astrology Neptune, Uranus and the Pluto are the planets which are not taken in account. Besides you would also come across the lunar nodes which are referred as the Rahu, the North Node and the Ketu, the South Node. In the chart you would find the placement of the planets based on which the predictions about the features of a person are made. Thus make use of the resources to know about your Moon sign and get guidance on what is in store for you.
