Vedic astrology is an ancient science practiced in India from 5,000 to 10,000 BC and is still widely used today. It is based on the idea that the position of the planets at a person's birth determines their personality and destiny. These positions can be calculated by applying a complex system of planetary movements to the positions of the sun, moon, and planets at any given time.
Vedic astrology is very similar to Western astrology but differs in many ways. For example, it relies on more than just the sun sign for determining personality traits; instead, Vedic astrologers consider factors such as the exact time of birth and position of all celestial bodies at that time in order to determine an individual's unique characteristics and tendencies.
