Hindu Astrology, or Vedic Astrology springs forth from the ancient Vedas, the spiritual Bible of ancient India, reputed to be over 5000 years old!
The astrology of ancient India comes to us originally from the Rig Veda, the oldest of the four Vedas. The Vedas were originally an oral tradition that was passed down from family to family, generation to generation, reputedly over thousands of years. Along with the Vedas are ancillary texts known as Vedanga, or limbs of the Vedas. One of these limbs specifically explains astrology. It is called Jyotish Vedanga in Sanskrit, meaning "the limb of astrology." The oral traditions of this sacred knowledge were called Shruti in Sanskrit, meaning "that which is heard." Latter the oral traditions were written down, and referred to as Smriti in Sanskrit, meaning "that which is remembered." The astrology of ancient India draws a distinction between the knowledge that is directly transmitted orally from teacher to student, and the knowledge that later was written down in books. The consciousness of ancient India acknowledges the often sharp distinctions between that which has been heard, and later, that which is remembered!
There are many systems of astrology, from many cultures the world over. World has evidence which prove that the early civilizations has a deep knowledge of Astrology. The Babylonians, the Chinese, the Egyptians, the Greeks, and the Hindus all have developed extensive systems of Astrology. Jyotish or Vedic Astrology is a major branch of astrology widely practiced in India and in the other parts of the world.
Indian astrology also differs considerably from the Chinese horoscope which is based on the year of birth and believes that the year of birth indicates a certain phase or aspect of sixty year circle of time. Therefore you may find yourself born in the year of dog, horse or rat or even a dragon. Hence people who are born in a particular animal year share certain common traits just like people born in common zodiac do.
Indian astrology is highly authentic and its predictions are believed to be the most accurate. Being based on the actual constellations of stars, this is the most widely used system of astrology across the world.
