How are the Horoscope charts formed?
Predicting one’s future through astrology involves preparing natal or horoscope charts. An individual’s place of birth, time of birth and date of birth play a vital role to determine what their future holds for them. Astrologers use this information to know the correct positions of the planets and zodiac signs and once these are correctly determined, they can construct the horoscope or the natal chart of the individual. By using this knowledge, they analyse the horoscope of the individual in great depth and determine various conclusions and possibilities about the life (Past, present & future) of the person.
Through Vedic astrology, one can get knowledge about one’s inner self, their true purpose in life, their choices and Karma.
