What is a sidereal placement? The sidereal system is based on the current position of the constellations. Over the years, the stars have slowly changed location relative to Earth, which means there is a twenty-four degree variance between the tropical system you are accustomed to using and the actual constellations.
Is Vedic chart the same as sidereal? Vedic astrology is recognized as sidereal astrology in modern days. The fundamental astronomical difference between tropical and sidereal astrology is that they use different timing systems wherein a sidereal timing system is applied in Vedic astrology.
What is Vedic sidereal astrology? Vedic astrology uses the sidereal zodiac, which puts the planets’ position against a backdrop of stars (Sidereal means stars). Because of the Earth’s tilt and wobbly orbit, the stars and constellations do not remain in a fixed position. Each fixed star moves about one zodiacal degree every 72 years.
Is your sidereal chart more accurate? Vedic or Sidereal astrology is presented from the earth’s perspective as the planets move through the constellations overhead. However, the constellations are not actually spaced in 30 degree segments, so Sidereal astrology can’t claim to be a more accurate or natural system than Tropical astrology.
