The Vedic birth chart in many ways is different from the traditional western charts. In Astrology Of India , astrologers use what termed sidereal zodiac rather than the topical zodiac. The actual position 12 zodiac signs in sky is the base of sidereal zodiac. Where as sun and its rises at the spring equinox is the base of topical zodiac.

With every year passed the point O° Aires moves slightly, one aspect of the phenomenon known as the procession of the equinoxes. The two zodiacs built a difference of 23° over the centuries, for throwing mostly planet into an adjacent sign. Vedic astrologers make a chart based on the birth moments defined as the moment of the first cry of the newborn.

In a person’s chart planets are the most important elements, which were in ancient times acknowledged with less important divinity. In Sanskrit planets are named as graham, that which possesses a person hence planets are seen as representative illusions (maya) of earthly existence that obscure the individual's divine nature.

Each planet has obtained a set of associations and its particular placement in the chart indicates a variety of strengths and weaknesses. Generally, only the ancient visible planets are utilized by Vedic astrologers and thus one will not find Uranus, Neptune, or Pluto, not to mention the asteroids or hypothetical planets that occasionally appear as elements in Western horoscopes.

Uranus, Neptune, or Pluto

As per my 22 years of Astrological practical experience,I have not found any significance of all these two or three planets in a personal horoscope as they have negligible mass and gravitational effect on earth.

R.Sridhar I agree with this


I agree with this statement. Even our great old sages have not considered this.

Balance and playfulness

May have a great interest and may not, it's not a matter of his sageness. Sageness is balance and playful indifference. A sage is not someone who is dismissing everything tangible. This is simply the opposite of being attached to everything tangible - both are the same and are ignorance. A true sage regards form the same way he regards the beyond form. He regards the relative the same way he regards the absolute.

As someone wrote here a few days ago, dismissing everything, obsessive going beyond, trying to apply principles of absolute reality on the relative reality, are analytical activities of the ignorant mind masqueraded as a spiritual sageness. This way the mind makes sure one will not touch life and change.

Seriousness is a good sign of an ignorant. Playfulness is a good sign of a sage and personal horoscopes are playful. The ignorant stands by the pool of reality and refuses to jump into it out of fear hid behind statements such as "it is just water", and if he is not fearful of the water, he jumps and refuses to go out. The sage joyfully jumps into the water, swims, enjoys, merges with it, smiles wholeheartedly, invites others, and then simply goes out.

R.Sridhar Ancient sages and


Ancient sages and saints have formulated certain basic rules / guidance for understanding the effects of planets on
the human Kundalini in physical form. In my view they have not considered pluto,uranus and neptune to have any effect or very negligible effect on the human beings / or on to the earth.

vedic astrology

I went last year to a vedic astrologer in Rishikesh. The different approach was interesting but mmm although he was highly recommended I don't know how good he was in retrospective.

I heard of another very famous one in Jaipur.

Do you know of a website which gives online a basic personal vedic astrology preferably free of charge?
