Indian astrology is also born of Vedas. It is also called Vedic astrology because of its birth from the Vedas. Vedic scripture is a type of science that studies the sun, moon, nine planets and constellations in the sky and tells us what effect it will have on the lives of humans living on earth.

Nine Planets

Sun, Moon, Mars, Guru, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, Saturn, Rahu, Ketu are known as Navagraha. All the planets travel in their transit and stay for some time in the zodiac and provide the zodiac fruit. Rahu and Ketu are considered as planets. They do not have real existence. Both these zodiac signs are located as mathematical points.

Ascendant and Birth sign

Earth rotates on its axis in 24 hours, completing day and night. Earth rotates in the east to west direction. For this reason, all the planets, constellations and zodiac signs appear to rotate from east to west once in 24 hours.
