Understanding Vedic Astrology Chart Information

vedic astrology chart

An astrological birth chart, also known as an astrologic astrology chart or astrologic natal chart, is a map of where the planets were at their most harmonious travel around the Sun (at this point in time). An astrological chart reading can reveal your energies and strengths, your possibilities for soul development, your best timing for making important life decisions. It can also reveal a lot about your personality. An astrological chart can be used to see beyond your everyday experiences.

An Overview

An interesting vedic astrology chart to consider is one which charts your rising sign, or sign. Rising signs, like our Sun sign, are simple, round, and constellated, and are not a circle. The sign of your rising sign will be determined by a table of elements that are arranged from the largest element out to the smallest. This will determine the location of the Sun or a rising star in the sky. This small table gives us our exact location in the zodiac system.

Let’s use the example of Virgo, the rising sign of Virgo, and our Sun or rising star. Virgo exudes an intellectual, Sensitive, and artistic quality and has great admiration for beauty. They have a tendency to overdo things and are often criticized for being pushy. In many ways, they are perfectionists. A vedic astrology chart for Virgo would depict them as artistic, sensitive, and intellectual, but with a slightly different side than we would normally expect.

As is the case with most things, there is always a middle ground. When it comes to this type of vedic astrology chart, our Sun or rising sign, will have one of the major houses (the ascendant) placed in the center of the circle. This placement gives them a balance, just a little bit of “push and pull”, between their two major influences, the Earth and the Sun. There will also be a point on the chart representing the Ascendant, which represents the Sun or rising sign. There will be a secondary point representing the Moon, which is the planet Mercury.

In a vedic astrology chart for Virgo, there are several places where the Sun or Rising Sign will be in the inner circle (called the “axial” stage). At this stage, this person is on the verge of greatness, but has yet to reach his true potential, may have some problems as well as challenges, but he has the potential to do wonderful things. On the other hand, when the Sun or Rising Sign is in the outer portion of the circle (known as the “apex”) the signs facing each other (known as the “ruler” or “anti-wrinkle” signs) represent opposite forces. For example, a Sun in the ascendant represents an individual that is ambitious and driven, while a Moon in the Rising Sign represents an individual who is overly sensitive and emotional.

Planet Movement

Vedic astrology charts also contain information regarding the relative movements of the planets at different stages of the year. They also include information regarding the relationships between the moon, the sun, Mars and the other planets. If we take the example of the Chinese lunar calendar, it can be compared to western astrology charts. Chinese astrologers have developed a number of useful methods and formulas to predict the phases of the moon during different stages of the Chinese calendar. This information can be very useful for people who want to know their future and the possible effects that they can expect.

There are several factors that affect the formation of a vedic astrology chart. A good vedic astrology chart must be carefully prepared by a qualified astrologer. This includes information about the placement of the planets in the sky. Although they are believed to be largely predictive, the vedic astrology chart must still be interpreted with great care. The interpretations of a natal astrological birth chart depend on the precise interpretation of the information contained in the birth chart.


For example, there are some charts which show a definite relationship between the Sun, Mars and the Moon. Such relationships are called “interlocking” and they indicate a particular time of birth, for example, the birth of a baby. It is important to note that this information is not set in stone and that different cultures will see such relationships differently. However, it is possible to draw some general conclusions from the information provided in a vedic astrology chart such as the presence or absence of certain planets.
