In this page the Astrological information is given for our self understanding. First the correct conclusion of Astrology's given to know what actually Astrology is. Then according to one's moon sign his physical appearance, characteristics, his health and disease, finance and fortune and romance and Love affairs are given.

Astrology: It is the theory that says that particular configurations of the heavenly bodies at one's birth are significantly related to one's personality or character and life events at adulthood. Astrology claims to be able to describe and predict a person's behavior on the basis of horoscope An individual horoscope is a geocentric map of the sky in which are located astrologically significant elements such as zodiac signs, planets, the ascendant and the houses at the time of that individual's birth. There are also other important factors which have to be considered equally in astrology. They are one's heredity, physical and cultural environment, including one's upbringing, significant social relationship, chance events and encounters and one's own decisions. Then we achieve the knowledge of self-understanding and understanding of others. Astrology is regarded favorably by the most because of the following reason:

  • Its durability down the centuries,
  • Most cultures have developed its form.
  • Many great scientists were Astrologers
  • It is an empirical science based on observation.
  • Astrology uses' mathematics as do most sciences still there are limitations to Astrology to work correctly because it has an almost unlimited scope to describe anything and the ability of Astrologer for the correct interpretations. However, astrology is very much popular science because each and everyone is very eager to know his fortune some day or other.

Our ancestors evolved a rational approach towards planets and their movements and based Indian astrology on this approach. We have five main factors governing Indian astrology :

Planets    Zodiac   Constellation   Houses   Ascendant

  • The Zodiac (Rasi) - A fixed background to which all cosmic bodies are referred. This is divided into 12 equal parts called zodiacs each measuring 30 degrees in angular extent. In predictive astrology we assume that earth is stationary and all planets are revolving around it. The planets traverse different zodiacs from 1 to 12 and 12 to 1. The earth revolves around its axis in 24 hours and If a person sees the eastern horizon, he would see 12 zodiacs arising. That part of zodiac which arises at the time of birth on eastern horizon is called "Ascendant" or "Lagna, lagna ". At the time of birth, the position of moon on zodiac is called "Zodiac Sign" or "Rasi, raiSa"

  • The Constellation (Nakshatras) - These are also called asterisms, which are subdivisions of the fixed background or Zodiac into smaller equal parts marked by the fixed stars. The so-called fixed stars themselves move too, but their motion with respect to the planets is invariably limited. Today, most astrologers use 27 Nakshatras.
