Books on Making, Reading and Matching Horoscopes

That the stars and the planets in the universe have a bearing on the lives of human beings and affect them is an ancient belief existing in all the cultures of the world. The science that has evolved and developed this belief is known as astrology. In Hinduism it is called 'Jyautisa or Jyotissastra'.

The jataka or the horoscope(also called 'Kundali') which gives the position of the various planets and the stars at the actual time of birth of a human being, is the basic diagram for all astrological calculations.

Fixing the position of the planets at the time of birth and drawing the horoscope is an intricate process. It can be done only by expert astrologers with the aid of almanacs accurately prepared by competent persons.

Q2. Which astrology chart is more accurate?


Vedic astrology predictions are more accurate as these astrologers analyze the current planetary movement of an individual's birth chart. They also take 27 nakshatras and their lords into account while preparing your report. Unlike other types of astrology, Jyotish( Vedik) has been practiced uninterrupted for thousands of years in India and beyond. This continuous application allows for a deep rigor and precision in a Vedic reading that you don't get with other types of astrology. The Vedic tradition is rooted in spirituality and is meant to be integrated holistically into one’s life. The reading would leave with remediation suggestions-such as mantras, offerings, or dietary adjustments—to improve one’s circumstances, based on the chart.

Q3. Are horoscopes actually accurate?

Astrology has not demonstrated its effectiveness in controlled studies and has no scientific validity, and is thus regarded as pseudoscience. The majority of professional astrologers rely on performing astrology-based personality tests and making relevant predictions about the remunerator's future. Those who continue to have faith in astrology have been characterized as doing so "even though there is no verified scientific basis for their beliefs, and indeed that there is strong evidence to the contrary". The continued belief in astrology despite its lack of credibility is seen as a demonstration of low scientific literacy, although some continue to believe in it even though they are scientifically literate.

Q4. How accurate are horoscopes?


Astrology has been rejected by the scientific community as having no explanatory power for describing the universe. Scientific testing has found no evidence to support the premises or purported effects outlined in astrological traditions. “Does astrology work?” On the one hand, the straightforward answer is that, according to a host of scientific studies, astrology does not work. On the other side, those who regularly read their horoscopes are astonished by how accurately it depicts their future life events. Some call it pseudoscience, a pure game of psychology. Whatever the case is, Astrology is still in action even after its history of thousands of years. What makes it survive is its accuracy, to predict events of our life in advance.

Q5. Is there a scientific basis for horoscopes?


There’s very little scientific proof that astrology is an accurate predictor of personality traits, future destinies, love lives, or anything else that mass-market astrology claims to know. For example, in a 1985 study published in the journal Nature, Dr. Shawn Carlson of the University of California found that seasoned astrologers were unable to match an individual’s star chart with the results of a personality test any better than random chance. Despite a majority of scientific evidence to suggest that the stars do not influence our lives – and even personally demonstrable evidence failed to materialize – people continue to believe. The planets, the cycles of nature, the full moons are there, nature relates to all of that, it’s not something to believe in.

Q6. Are horoscopes scientifically accurate?


Studies that support the claims of astrology have been largely dismissed by the wider scientific community for a “self-attribution” bias – subjects had prior knowledge of their sign’s supposed characteristics and therefore could not be reliable – or because they could not be replicated. Astrologers are, unsurprisingly, not impressed by scientific efforts to prove or disprove astrology, claiming that scientists are going about it all wrong – astrology is not empirical in the way that, say, physics is: “Experiments are set up by people who don’t have any context for this, even if they were attempting to do something constructive,” says Shelley von Strunckel, American astrologer and horoscope writer whose column appears in The Sunday Times, London Evening Standard.

Q7. What are the three types of horoscopes?


Western (Tropical) :  Western Astrology was conceived by the Greeks and the Babylonians. There are 12 Western or sun signs: the Ram, Bull, Twins, Crab, Lion, Virgin, Scales, Scorpion, Centaur, Sea-Goat, Water Bearer, and Fish.


Vedic (Jyotish) : The planets are considered the karmas of the soul. Karma is the central theme of Vedic astrology as it can have either good or bad consequences depending on our past lives.


Chinese :  there are 12 signs within Chinese astrology : the Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and Pig. Chinese astrology has four key pillars that determine fate: birth date, month, year, and birth hour.
