The Horoscope or Birth-Chart (popularly known as Janam Kundali) is a map of the heavenly bodies which shows the positions of the planets & their relation at the time of birth of as new born child at that place.
The horoscope shows the sign of Zodiac and the relative position of planets and nakshatras positioned in the twelve houses of the map. The "houses" of the chart indicate specific areas of our life in which actions will be performed, and which will be strong or weak depending on the nature and situation of planets that influence them.
There are several precise steps that need to be followed in preparing and offering interpretations of birth charts or horoscopes. If these steps are performed as prescribed, the result is a birth chart that can form a useful basis for interpretation. Interpretation can address a person's basic character, & can also serve to highlight some of the forces at play in influencing a person at different periods in their life.
Therefore, the first step towards making accurate predictions of any individual is to cast his/her horoscope using correct birth date and time of that person.

However, we can make use of the modern technological marvel - the computer - to do all these calculations. Now, as we know that, the process of casting one's horoscope will be accurate using computers, the remaining part of making predictions can be easily done by an experienced astrologer.
