What is Vedic Astrology or Jyotish?

Jyotish is commonly referred as Vedic Astrology.

It is a science of light, both the light of celestial bodies and the internal light
of the soul, which unfolds the knowledge of how the planets and stars
influence an individual human life and general mundane events.
Jyotish also sheds light on individual destiny.
Jyotish is predictive astrology.

Look to the Stars

Vedic astrology is based on the Sidereal Zodiac and the planets’ movements
are tracked against fixed observable stars in the sky.
Western astrology, or Tropical astrology,
emphasizes the relationship of the Sun to the Earth and the seasons.
