Sun Signs – Indian / Vedic / Sidereal

Who doesn’t love Astrology? You do or don’t? I do! The curious crab in me wants to dig out all the possible higher secrets of life :D

It is interesting and intriguing when I look at a chart and describe the person’s personality, needs, deepest or secret hopes and wishes and they go – “YA! THIS IS ME!!” and then I squirt – “Everything I described about you was not related to what you thought is your Sun sign. I was describing you based on your rising sign and in fact, your Sun sign as per Sidereal calculations is different from western…” Indian (Vedic / Sidereal) astrology sun signs are different from Western (Tropical) Astrology or as commonly seen in Linda Goodman’s book.

So if you were reading the Scorpio forecast all these years, and you could possibly be a Libra or a Sagittarius.

…and besides forecasts don’t truly belong to astrology. They are fancy and fun but that’s about it. For one, they haven’t been a part of organic astrology. To top it, logically speaking, how can one categorize millions of people’s future in just 12 ways for every single day of their life? Give it a thought!

Below is the comparative date chart for Sidereal (Vedic / India) Astrology as vs. Tropical (Western) Astrology dates used as Zodiac signs by astrologers.
