Join me on this intriguing journey into the world of Vedic Astrology with Radha Home. Listen in as we unravel the complexities of the fixed stars in the sidereal system, the Gregorian calendar, and the 24-degree difference between the tropical and sidereal calculations. We shed light on how Vedic astrology is a system that follows the stars while Western astrology is based on the calendar of equinoxes and solstices. We discuss the significance of the rising sign in Vedic astrology and how it plays a more critical role in shaping your personality and karma compared to the sun sign. In the second part of our discussion, we explore the power and implications of sun, moon, and rising signs in astrology. The sun sign, we explain, is like the make of a car, the moon sign - the engine, and the rising sign - the paint job. Listen in as we delve into the challenge earth signs face in connecting with the source and the importance of examining the planets in one's chart for a deeper understanding of oneself. We also venture into the realm of houses in astrology, and discuss how the Vedic system divides the signs into 30-degree segments, providing a different perspective than the Western system which calculates them based on actual star patterns in the sky. The final part of our podcast explores the potent role of the lunar cycle in aligning our personal and business undertakings. We explore the four components of the cycle, the mythologies of the nakshaktras and how they influence our lives. Radha and I also discuss the power of intuition and the often-held misconceptions in society. We round off with an interesting exploration of society being "just a little bit off" and the importance of being in alignment with our true selves. Tune in to this enlightening episode for a unique understanding of Vedic Astrology.
