Basics of Astrology

Basics of Astrology
The Ascendant or rising sign represents when a person is born and is calculated by taking the date of birth, time, and place of birth. In simple terms, the ascendant is considered as the first house of a horoscope which represents our body and soul. In simple terms, we can say the  ascendant or Lagna is considered as a mask one is wearing at the time of birth as it can guide a person’s characteristic, or be what others see outwardly.
The Moon sign is a sign which rules our emotions, our life and our nature and which is considered very important in Vedic astrology.
The difference between Vedic astrology and Western astrology is that Vedic astrology focuses on the Moon sign whereas Western Astrology concentrates on the Sun sign. Sun takes a full year to move to a zodiac and stops in each zodiac sign for a month whereas, the Moon completes the entire zodiac in a month and stops in each zodiac for 2 days or for little more time.
Vedic astrology divides each zodiac into 27 equal parts and each part is given a unique name which is known as Nakshatra.  All 27 Nakshatra are ruled by 7 main planets and 2 sub-planets.
There are 12 zodiac signs and each sign is ruled by different planets and they are as follows -

Planets         Corresponding Signs             
Sun               Leo                 
Moon              Cancer                     
Mercury           Gemini & Virgo
Venus             Libra & Taurus
Mars              Aries & Scorpio
Jupiter           Sagittarius & Pisces
Saturn            Aquarius & Capricorn

Note - In Vedic astrology, we don't consider Uranus, Neptune, or Pluto and utilise Rahu and Ketu. Rahu and Ketu are not considered as a planet's because they were given powers by Lord Shiva and treated as sub-planets and not the main planets. We in our mythology believe that Solar and Lunar Eclipses are caused because of Rahu and Ketu as they swallow the Sun and the Moon.

DISCLAIMER -Every reading is based on calculation and the astrologer is only a person and not a God so no responsibility lies with the astrologer.
