Jyotish and its difference from classical astrology

Vedic astrology Jyotish is a teaching that appeared more than 4 thousand years ago. It examines the influence of the planets, the Sun and the Moon on health and destiny, displays the true essence of a person. To understand what Jyotish is, it makes sense to compare it with Western, classical astrology.

Sun and moon

Traditional Western astrology is solar, Vedic is lunar. This means that the zodiac sign is determined by the position of the corresponding celestial body in the sky at birth. In Jyotish, when drawing up a personal horoscope, they look at the ascendant (lagna) - a sign that ascends at the moment of birth.

It changes its position every two hours. Therefore, in order to make a personal forecast, it is imperative to know not only the date, but also the time of birth. Western astrology takes into account the position of the planets relative to the Sun, which changes every month. Vedic astrology studies not only a person's character, but also the state of health, possible problems, the future, past and present.


Western astrology and Jyotish look at houses and planets differently. In traditional astrology, there are ten planets, among them the Sun and the Moon. There are nine of them in the Vedic (Mars, Mercury, Venus, Saturn, Jupiter, the Sun, the Moon, the shadow planets Rahu and Ketu). Western does not take into account the planetary shift occurring due to the instability and changeability of the universe.

Vedic astrology takes into account the displacement of the Sun - ayanamsha - and reflects the real position of the stars. In the Western teaching, one house can be located in different signs, which blurs the picture. In Jyotish, only one sign corresponds to each house, this gives clearer information.

There is also the concept of "yoga" (variations of the combination of planets as the owners of houses) and "nakshatras" (lunar sites). They allow you to gain deep knowledge about a person and events.

Research methods

Another difference between Jyotish and Western astrology is the materials for making a personal forecast. Western astrologers work only with the natal chart. The Vedic, in addition to it, use 16 vargas (additional cards) and one lunar. This allows you to get to the deepest knowledge. In addition, there are karakas (significators), avastakhs, sahamas, chakras, argals, upagrahas and many other methods designed to describe the picture of what is happening as accurately and objectively as possible.

Fate correction

Vedic astrologers not only draw up a personal horoscope, but also calculate ways to change fate and personality. They believe that certain actions can change karma and prevent misfortune.

The most ancient medicine Ayurveda, upaya (ways to harmonize the influence of the planets), meditation - all this has a positive effect on the health and psychological state of a person. The sacred books on Vedic astrology - the Vedas - contain a huge amount of information about fate, life and karma. The Vedas say that everything material is a shell of consciousness.

When humanity loses spirituality, takes the path of degradation, the Earth changes its position in the Universe. But over time, harmony reigns again. This is only part of the information about Jyotish - an ancient science that studies the essence of phenomena and human destinies.

The Daily Celestial app, which is based on biorhythms, mathematics and astrology, calculates a personal horoscope. It will help you realize the cause of many life events, achieve your goals and grow as a person.
