Astrology as practiced today in India is called Vedic Astrology or Jyotish. The Vedic system of astrology originated in India over 5,000 years ago. It is called Vedic because of its close association with the Vedas (a Sanskrit word), the most ancient spiritual texts of India.
According to the science of astrology, planets represent certain energies, and, in fact, do emit certain magnetic and electric fields which influence the lives of human beings. At the time of birth, you absorb certain degrees and certain proportions of cosmic energy. That energy creates the ups and downs in your life.
Vedic astrology differs from Western astrology as it uses the star Revati, instead of Spring Equinox, as the starting point for the 12 signs of the zodiac. This difference may account for its greater accuracy in the prediction of future events.
