We call "Jothishya" to astrology meaning of that is shining. I understood myself that astrology is not just mathematical calculations It's beyond that and some skillful astrologers have psychic abilities mixed with their astrological knowledge. There are some variations based some cultures in vedic astrology too as a example there are 3 main different astrological chart making methods in vedic astrology. (North Indian Chart, South Indian Chart and East Indian Chart). And also I found different explanations for a same thing with different spiritual gurus(Teachers) in vedic astrology. (Ex: Jaimini astrology, Nadi astrology, Krishnamurthi astrology)
I'm going to sharing an Interesting thing I hope you enjoy this.
