Western astrology which considers the Sun sign is considered well suited for generalized Horoscope readings as it does not go into many details. It is a simplified format of astrology and takes into consideration only the position of the Sun at birth. But Vedic astrology will come handy if someone is looking for a detailed and personalized analysis of his destiny. Expert Vedic astrologers at astroYogi explain the advantage of Vedic astrology over Western astrology:
Vedic astrology is ‘Sidereal’ and works its way based on the 27 constellations and the moon sign of a person. Here astrologers also consider the 12 houses and the planetary positioning on these houses. Western astrology is Tropical and uses the moveable Zodiac, where signs are defined by the seasonal movement of the sun. An expert Vedic astrologer would consider Vargas or divisional charts, for specific queries of their clients. Each of these charts delves into a particular aspect of a person’s destiny, so this would be a more detailed approach towards specific concerns. The remedies and time corrections advised by Vedic astrologers would be based upon this in-depth analysis of a specific issue. Vedic astrology also has mentioned specific Yogas and Doshas based upon the effect of specific positioning of planets in one’s horoscope. The scope of Western astrology is limited to general predictions and effects on each zodiac sign. For instance, if a client has a concern regarding his relationships a Vedic astrologer will be looking at his Navamsa Varga or the D9 chart.
