Astrology is defined as a pseudoscience that claims to have information on human affairs by studying the position and movement of celestial objects. It is to have originated in Babylon with the Babylonians developing their form of horoscope. In astrology, it is believed that the position of stars, movements of planets, asteroids, and other stars have an influence on the human lives, events, and behaviour of people. Both astrology and astronomy started as the same thing, but are considered to be different today.
The scientific community has rejected astrology as having no explanatory power with regards to describing the universe. Modern Hindu astrology is deemed to be important in the contemporary lives of many Hindus. They believe that heavenly bodies and planets have an influence on the life of a human being and that these planetary influences are “fruit of karma.” The Hindu system of astrology traditionally is Jyotisha or Jyotishya, and more recently, Vedic astrology.
According to Hindu culture, the newborns are traditionally named based on jyotiṣa charts. One makes use of this while taking important decisions such as marriage, starting a new business, or moving into a new home. Today one can easily create a kundli online by giving the accurate birth date, time, and place. The software online can calculate the house and sign placement of each planet. All these are important in Vedic astrology as it helps to generate the kundli, which is the horoscope. There are several predictions and consultations available online for those who seek advice and wish to know more about their future.
