What is Ramal Astrology?
Astrology is an ancient form of knowledge that originated in India. Spoken about in-depth in the Indian sacred texts called Vedas, it was written 10,000 years ago. That's how it's called Indian Vedic Astrology or just Vedic Astrology.
Vedic astrology follows moon signs and lunar movement, which changes every 2 and a 1/2 days (unlike Sun signs in Western Astrology which change once in a month)
By virtue of changing in a short period of time, Vedic astrology is more detailed, precise & accurate. It is assumed that Vedic astrology can predict events down to the most accurate days and weeks.
Astrological principles state that the position of planets at the precise time of your birth reveal the map of your life and also indicate a history of your karmas. By studying this, one may be able to get clarity of one's life path and take decisions accordingly.
What is a Kundali?
A Kundali is the Indian word for a birth chart - a piece of diagram that maps the position of planets as they were at the time of birth of the chart owner. This diagram is charted using three basic information details - the date of birth, time of birth and place of birth of the individual. The Kundali reveals the degrees of planets, which sign they are placed in, which conjunction they have, and all this is studied in depth to arrive at accurate life predictions for the individual.
Based on the study, a competent astrologer can suggest relevant crystal / gem stones to wear to overcome the negative effects of planets. Remedies may also be given as per Hindu mythology as each planet denotes a God and has certain characteristics which are unique to that God.
