It seems a far easier task to align your choices based on your planetary movements and the sun and the moon and later blame them for whatever goes wrong or if it goes right. Hinduism strongly relies on such predictions and calculations to assess festivities, births, and even your Horoscope signs.

Jyotish Shastra is the traditional Hindu system of astrology, also known as Hindu astrology, Indian astrology, and more recently Vedic astrology. The foundation of Hindu astrology is the notion of bandhu (binding together dissimilar things by what is common across all things in the entire creation) of the Vedas, (scriptures), which is the connection between the microcosm and the macrocosm. The practice relies primarily on the sidereal zodiac, meaning an ayanāṁśa adjustment is made for the gradual precession of the vernal equinox.

Unlike the Sun sign based Western System, Vedic Astrology uses the Moon Sign as the basis of all predictions. The Moon changes its sign every 2 & 1/2 days making it impossible to judge the Moon Sign by only the date of birth. The Hindu Zodiac Sign, Moon Sign uses the date, place & time to bring greater precision.

Around 2500 BC many extant texts were written by sages such as Agastya and Bhrigu. Each sign was divided into three strata called “Charna”, similar to the Decanates of Western astrology. The Nirayana, or sidereal zodiac, is an imaginary belt of 360 degrees, which, like the Sāyana, or tropical zodiac, is divided into 12 equal parts. Each twelfth part (of 30 degrees) is called a sign or rāśi (Sanskrit: ‘part’).

A Nakshatra (Nakṣatra) or lunar mansion is one of the 27 divisions of the sky, identified by the prominent star(s) in them, used in Hindu astrology.
