If you’re into astrology, you’ve undoubtedly mapped your birth chart and maybe even looked up your astrological love compatibility while your Farmtrue Ghee Meditation Candle burns in the background. But did you know Western astrology isn’t the only astrological system out there? Vedic Astrology, translated to Jyotish in Sanskrit, means the science of light.
The major difference between Vedic and Western astrology is the zodiac system. Western astrology uses the tropical zodiac based on the seasons and the Earth’s relationship to the sun. Vedic astrology uses the sidereal zodiac, which puts the planets’ position against a backdrop of stars. Discover your Vedic Astrology Birth Chart.
Because of the Earth’s tilt and wobbly orbit, the stars and constellations do not remain in a fixed position. Each fixed star moves about one zodiacal degree every 72 years. The sidereal zodiac takes this into account via the ayanamsa corrective system, aka the change in the orientation of the rotational axis of a rotating body. In contrast, the tropical system doesn’t account for this movement. This means that your sun sign in Jyotish or Vedic astrology might be different from the one you know from Western astrology.
