Definition of Vedic Astrology
Vedic Shastra is a type of science that studies the Sun, Moon, nine planets and constellations located in the sky and what effect it will have on the lives of human beings living on earth. While calculating Vedic astrology, the zodiac, Navagraha, birth sign are taken as the basis.
The zodiacs are made up of constellations. A constellation of stars is called a constellation. The total number of constellations is 27. Each constellation is of 13 degree 20 minutes. Each zodiac sign has 30 degrees in the zodiac. Ashwini is the first constellation in the zodiac.
Navagraha Nine Planets
Sun, Moon, Mars, Jupiter, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, Saturn, Rahu, Ketu are known as Navagraha. All the planets while traveling in their transits stay in the zodiac for some time and give the results of the zodiac. Rahu and Ketu are considered to be virtual planets. They do not have real existence. Both of these are located as mathematical points in the zodiac.
The earth makes one revolution on its axis in 24 hours, which completes day and night. The earth rotates from west to east. Due to this, all the planets, constellations and zodiac signs appear to move from east to west once in 24 hours.
When a child is born, the zodiac which rises in the east direction in latitude and longitude at that time is called the person's birth ascendant. The zodiac in which the Moon is sitting at the time of birth is called Janma Rashi or Moon Lagna.
