Vedic comes from the Sanskrit word “Veda” which means knowledge. Vedic astrology is an ancient Indian science that explains planetary motions and positions with regard to time and their influence on people and other entities on earth. It believes in and embraces the law of “karma” which puts forth the precept that a person’s actions in his/her past lifetime will bear consequences in his/her present life.
The difference between Vedic astrology and Western astrology lies in the method of measurement of the zodiac. The former primarily uses the sidereal zodiac wherein the stars are considered as the fixed background against which the motion of the planets is measured. The latter primarily uses the tropical zodiac wherein the position of the sun in the spring equinox is the vantage point through which the motion of the planets is measured.
Further, since Vedic astrology is deeply rooted on the cosmological, psycho-spiritual teachings of the ancient Indian culture, it lends a distinctive perspective into the readings that could not be found in the current western practice.
Today, there exists a growing interest in this kind of astrology. More people have turned to this type of astrology to find answers to their various questions, as well as find meaning in the many occurrences in their lives.
The advancement in information technology has revolutionized the field of Vedic astrology. The computers and the internet have made online vedic astrology possible, making it accessible to a greater number of people all over the world.
There are a number of benefits in opting online vedic astrology. For one, you will get readings or predictions about your family, relationship, career and finances at your convenient place and time. Usually, you just need to input your full name, birth date, age, address and country to enable the astrologers to make the readings.
Secondly, since online vedic astrology is popular, you can choose from among a number of websites and online astrologers. You can even go for those that specialize on your interest or concern. You can ask for sample readings to help you make the right choice.
Not only that, there are many online vedic astrology services that are free of charge—from readings to advice on love and money to natal and compatibility charts. However, if you want a long-term engagement with an astrologer as well as more personalized readings, you have to pay a meager amount. Generally, online readings are cheaper compared to the ones made in real life or through the phone services. The even better part is that you can print them and keep hard copies.
Whether or not you believe in astrology, it might be worth browsing some websites and the free readings they offer. Remember to have fun doing that.
