Indian astrology is the oldest wisdom found even in Atharva Veda
3000 B.C. back. Indian astrology is based on the relative
positions of stars or planets at the birth time. Mainly the nine
planets are supposed to influence the life of a person. These
are Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupitor, Saturn and two shadow
planets Rahu and Katu. To predict life events of a Person the
relative positions of these planets are determined and several
charts and Dashas Are made and calculated. There were several
Rishies who gave several systems to calculate & prepare these
charts and Dashas. Prominent names among them are Parasher Rishi
and Varahamihir and many others. It is quite difficult, even to
study a system thoroughly.
Predictions can be made only after preparing kundli or
Horoscope. Kundli science has three parts.
