Kundali, known as ‘horoscope’ in English, is an astrological chart or diagram representing the positions of Sun, Moon, planets, astrological aspects and sensitive angles at the time of an event, such as the moment of a person's birth. The word horoscope is derived from Greek words 'hõra' and 'scopos' meaning 'time' and 'observer' respectively. In Vedic astrology, Janam Kundli or simply 'Kundali' is the Sanskrit term used for birth-chart or Horoscope.

The 12 Houses represent the 12 zodiacs through which the 9 planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Ketu and Rahu) traverse. These houses also indicate specific areas of the person's life in which specific events may happen, which will be strong or weak depending on the position of planets.

Explaining the Layout/Structure of a Kundli chart.

The position of all the 12 planets at the time of birth are shown in a Kundli chart. In Vedic astrology the two chart styles commonly used are – North Indian and the South Indian chart styles. The North Indian birth-chart style is different from South Indian birth-chart. The North Indian is a house-based chart, meaning that the houses always stay in the same positions in the chart and the signs move. Whereas, the South Indian is a sign-based chart, meaning that the signs always stay in the same positions in the chart and the houses move. In any Chart/ Kundli there are 12 segments which are called 'Houses', 'Bhava', 'Sthan'.

What is the idea behind the basics of planetary positions in a Kundali chart?

The very basis of Indian astrology is the nine planets - Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, Saturn, Rahu and Ketu. Apart from the aforesaid nine planets there is an astrologically significant planet called Gulika (Maandi). Rahu and Ketu are actually the intersection points of Earth and Moon and not planets.

How to interpret and understand a Bhava chart in detail?

When the ascendant longitude is centralised in its sign and the extent of each sign is accurately calculated and the Rasi chart (kundali) redrawn, what we have is the Bhava chart. One can think of Bhava chart, in a sense, as corrected Rasi chart. Ascendant and Mid heaven are the two values we need to calculate in a Bhava chart. Ascendant is the sign rising in the eastern direction at the time of casting of kundali (chart). The longitudinal position of Ascendant is the mid point of the first house. Mid-heaven is the sign directly above the head. It is the midpoint of tenth house. The steps to calculate mid points of other houses are:
Total difference = Ascendant – Midheaven
Difference for one house = Total difference divided by 3
Mid point of 11th house = Midheaven + Difference for one house
Mid point of 12th house = Mid point of 11th house + difference for one house.
Similarly, calculate the midpoints of all the other houses to get the Bhava chart. The starting point of a bhava is the mean of its and the previous house’s midpoint. Naturally, the endpoint of a house is the beginning of the next one.LifeSign Mini Free Kundli Software, based on the influence of planets, gives detailed Bhava predictions on your character and life.

Astrology is the study of planets. The planets move in their own time and in their own space according to individual cycles. Astrology is based on the date, time and place of birth of a person.

What is the difference between Indian astrology and western astrology?

Western Astrology gives importance to Sun Signs whereas Indian Astrology focuses more on Moon Signs. Although there are techniques available to experts for deeper analysis, Western Astrology generally looks at your Sun-sign and gives general predictions which are common to millions of people. e.g. if your sun-sign is Pisces, the general predictions given by western astrologer or given in magazine / newspaper applies to all people under the sky whose sun-sign is Pisces.

On the other hand, Indian Astrology looks for your date of birth, time of birth and place of birth, which is unique in this world. Even in case of twins, the time of birth differs. Use of divisional charts, Dasa System , Ashtakavarga etc. and precise calculations for strength of planets makes Indian Astrology more accurate and individualised.

How accurate should the time of birth be?

The more accurate it is, the better. There are a number of calculations which require precision up to the minute. An interpretation can change entirely from one minute to the next, for example if the Ascendant changes signs. But these occasions are relatively rare, and usually it is sufficient to have precision of minutes for the birth time and around 20 kilometres for the place of birth.

On which panchanga is your astrology report based on?

here seems to be different systems of astrology, also we see differences between published almanacs (Panchangas). ASTRO-VISION astrology is broadly based on Indian Predictive Astrology also known as Vedic Astrology.

Hence most often there could be errors in manual calculations based on an almanac and Astro-vision calculations are more accurate and reliable since it is based on direct calculations based on the birth details.

What is the basis of Astro-Vision Numerology?

While Pythagorean algorithm assigns values to alphabets sequentially, A=1, B=2, C=3 etc. in the Chaldean system the values are assigned differently like A,I,J,Y =1.

Can you predict the age upto which I will live?

Astro-vision considers the knowledge of astrology as a self-development tool with a highly optimistic approach. It provides the power to people to transform their dreams into reality and it should be considered as a science which has been developed by the ancient gurus to infuse positive thinking and optimism. So as a policy Astro-vision does not support the study of longevity of an individual based on horoscope. It is said that only the God himself knows the exact date or time of death of a person.

What kinds of remedies are suggested by you?
