Astrology is the study of the relationship between the positions and movements of celestial bodies, life and physical processes on Earth. Although few astrologers work with constellations and stars, but western astrologers work with the Moon, the Sun and the planets within the Solar System. In addition, astrology goes way beyond the popularized Sun-Sign columns published in magazines and newspapers.
Astrology being the broader term, Vedic Astrology is the term used for Indian or Hindu Astrology system. Originating over thousands of years ago, ‘jyotish vidya’ as it was known as, was documented by Maharishi (learned sages) across the ages in the Hindu scriptures. The term Jyotish means the science of light. It is very apt as Vedic astrology deals in astral light patterns that reflect our destiny and future.
