Samhitā: Mundane astrology, predicting important events related to countries such as war, earthquakes, political events, financial positions, house and construction related matters (Vastu Shastra), animals, portents, omens, and so on.
Hora or Jataka: Predictive astrology where the astrologer makes predicions about future events in a person's life based on a birth chart (Janama Kundali) which records the exact time of birth and the positions of the planets at the time.
Vedic astrology is the traditional system of astrology of India that is at least 4000 years old. It has recently gained popularity in the West due its accuracy in predicting events and trends in our lives.In today’s world, Vedic Astrology is acknowledged as the most powerful & practiced astrology worldwide.
As per Vedic Astrology, there are twelve zodiac signs, nine planets and twelve houses. The twelve signs are distributed in the twelve houses and the placement of nine planets in different houses is done according to the birth time of a person. This type of distribution of the planets on the basics of time, place and date of birth, is termed as birth chart, natal chart or horoscope chart. A birth chart reflects the strength of a planet in the chart – its sign, house, aspects, house lordship and conjunctions.
As per the Dasha system, a theoretical longevity of a person is considered 120 years, divided into 9 main periods of 9 different planets: Sun (6 years), Moon (10 years), Mars (7 years), Rahu (18 years), Jupiter (16 years), Saturn (19 years), Mercury (17 years), Ketu (7 years) and Venus (20 years). Each major period is further divided into sub periods in the same ratio as the main periods. The sequence of the periods remains the same for every person, except for the starting point which is determined by the exact position of “Nakshatra” in degrees and minutes in the birth chart. “Nakshatra” or Birth star is the sign where moon is located at the time of the birth. Hence, Dasha system is unique for every person.
