History of Vedic Astrology

Three main branches of Astrology exist to date. Though there are a few more, people are mostly familiar with the names of Western, Indian, and Chinese Astrology. We find the presence of it for the first time in Mesopotamia and the Babylonia (then Chaldea) in and around 3600 B.C. In that era, the subject was being used to predict or forecast the weather or the possibility of disaster and even to find the chances of wars that might occur in the future.

People interested in studying or learning about astrology basics generally need help understanding all the words found on the pages, either on a website or in related books. There are many terminologies used in astrology basics which are not found in the lexicons that we commonly use in our day-to-day life, and even if the words are available, you will find the meanings described from an astronomical point of view rather than an astrological one. It may cause problems, when you study your natal chart prepared by an astrologer.
