Watch out for the full Moon on the ninth of September, on the grounds that its prone to thump you on your lovely derrier, Sag. This will be an incredible time to set free whatever you’ve been dragging alongside you, so don’t be terrified of misfortune, dear one. The ache of releasing somebody or something is obviously better than the agony of hanging on and giving it a chance to deteriorate on the grounds that you were to terrified to do what must be carried out. On the off chance that you stick to what you ought to be discharging, you’ll discover the week of the twentieth an especially tiresome time. The thing is that you’ve got to feel alright in your skin, Sag, generally your days will simply sort of suck.

There’s an enormous distinction between being a narrow minded jolt and doing what a young lady’s gotta do, and the qualification is in your intentions. Play reasonable as opposed to playing pleasant; try for sympathy rather than tact. Mid-month Mars traverses into your sun based sign and anything goes, my companion. Be star dynamic, however once more, don’t settle on any enormous choices indiscreetly. You’re traveling through such profound territory you may observe that you alter your opinion before long. Sit with your impulses before you make a call and you may be astonished at what happens; stay open to everything.

Capricorn Zodiac Sign

Capricorn – People born between December22 – January 19

You want the good news first, or the bad news? The good news is that you are kicking ass, sweet and surly Cappy my Cappy. If you take some big risks this month they’ll pay off, bringing you opportunities you didn’t see coming. You are going to get real time rewards for your efforts, and you totally deserve it. What you do with your winnings is on you, but I’d say this is a bad time to go on a bender or generally drop the ball. To make the most of opportunity you must seize it, Capricorn! Now to the bad news: to get to properly enjoy all that good stuff you’re going to have to combat some of your fears. You’ve done an excellent job of overwhelming yourself, and you may find that the first half of the month is especially stressful. It may be hard to gauge what a healthy challenge is, versus a painful life lesson, so let me give you a hint: if it’s good for you, you won’t have to pretend to be something you’re not. Look for situations and dynamics where you get to be yourself so that you can trust that whatever problems arise are productive ones, and not just holding you back. Pay attention to the new Moon in Libra on the 24th for meaningful shifts within your relationships. Your intimate relationships and collaborations may be big players in this month’s developing drama. Whether they’re super supportive or the very problems that you need to overcome, you kind of need to figure out for yourself. Be the Capitan, Capricorn.

Aquarious Zodiac Sign

Aquarious – People born between January 20 – February 18

The rub about unrestrained choice is that you are welcome to utilize it any damn way you please. The Universe couldn’t care less on the off chance that you mishandle yourself or settle on horrendous choices; she adores you regardless. Anyhow your life would be so much simpler on the off chance that you would simply settle on better decisions, Aquarius! You’re tripping balls, and not in a fun sort of way; I’m discussing the flip side of the slant. Awful vibes and a jumbled head. You can go about as chill as you need, yet in the event that you overlook what’s occurring within you it won’t go away all alone. You have to manage yourself, and to do it before you for realsies need to. Here’s a tip for accomplishing it; be fatigued of your brain machine. That some piece of your mind that is exceedingly legitimate and can advocate pretty much anything. Simply in light of the fact that you can talk yourself in or out of your emotions doesn’t mean you aren’t feeling them; having a Brazillian victory does not really provide for you straight hair; just straight hair for the time being. So what would it be advisable for you to do? Have a go at easing off and feeling your feelings for a begin. On the off chance that you need to be a hippy about it (which I completely affirm of), you can ponder or do yoga to smooth your mind’s babble and feel your heart. On the off chance that that is not your style, take a stab at investing some quality time alone with yourself, without a considerable measure of diversions and see what comes up. The lesson here is to deal with the stuff that nobody else sees, regardless of the fact that it makes you uncomfortable. Defying the stuff you would prefer not to manage now is superior to getting caught unawares by it later.

Pisces Zodiac Sign

Pisces – People born between February 20- March 20

Regardless of how seriously you need to escape, this is not a decent month to take a trek, my fishy companion. You may be adapting to some unfulfilled yearnings or frustrations not long from now, and you’ve got to oppose your go-to nature of fleeing when the crap hits the fan. Provoke yourself to stand up to your sentiments, and to let the individuals closest to you bail you out. Tell individuals what you need, regardless of the fact that you’re persuaded that they don’t need the same thing, or like where you’re at. You can’t do everything alone, and on the off chance that you give it a chance to, something new and gorgeous will go into your connections not long from now. The occasions of your life are in congruity with master plan goodness, trust it or not. You have to get a Meta perspective of your life to see it plainly, Pisces. Whether you’re managing an earth shattering starting or a tremendously required closure, your errand is to be straightforward with yourself about what kind of opinion you’re taking on this issue. On the off chance that you let the other individual lead, you won’t prefer where you wind up, I’m perplexed. Keep in mind that everybody has their own particular motivation that gets gone through their nerves and insecurities (its hard to believe, but its true you’re not alone). Simply on the grounds that somebody sees it uniquely in contrast to you doesn’t mean one of you is correct or wrong; indeed, I challenge you to be forthright and genuine about your emotions when you can’t help contradicting somebody you love not long from now. You should see that your connections can flourish actually when you bring your needs to the table. In the event that you need to pick a side, I trust you pick your own.

Offering what’s true for you, even the crappy stuff, encourages closeness, and you require closeness as much as you need some viewpoint, my dearest. No lady is an island. You need love, so don’t be terrified to request it regardless of the fact that you feel horrendously uncovered. The Universe is welcoming you to bring a chance with your heart, so don’t escape itwhen it goes to your affection life, September is the time to go out on a limb to get some (or keep it). Let the new Moon on the 24th help you to make love more sultry and healthier. Artfulness being the player that you be without steamrolling over the bitches that you love.

Stay show enough to see the impact your activities have on them however, so you can rapidly right any stumbles you make. You may be a bit of an emo wreck however you can put that dramatization to great utilization. Begin something new after the twentieth, and be interested in circumstance streaming your direction.

Once more, its a test of how well you know yourself, Taurus. Not all lovin’ is great lovin’, and you’ve got to have the learning toward oneself and self esteem to know whether something looks great yet isn’t a good fit.

Gemini Zodiac Sign

Gemini – People born between May 21 – June 21

On the off chance that you had as much cash as you need, what would you do, Twin Star? Since on the off chance that you’d piss it away then there’s no point for The Universe to bring every last bit of its wealth to your wonderful feet, now is there? It insufficient to make a living (ideally the vegetarian kind on the grounds that let’s be honest, pigs are delightful and frightfully shrewd)—you’ve got to concoct it right. You’re in line for real wealth, however in the event that you don’t handle it well it could signify a significant obligation, as well.

In the not so distant future is all the more about beginning things up then endings, however, so don’t stress over loosing old companions.

So have a great time, yet less that you undermine your growing trium.

Cancer Zodiac Sign

Evaluate your qualities and fight the temptation to take after what other individuals are doing or are letting you know to do. You have to wait for what implies the most to you so you can go your own specific manner. The full Moon on the ninth will bring something to a head, and its prone to influence your home or individual life, so the sooner you manage that stuff, the better.

All other astrological features are directly available in the side menu: many types of graphics, daily horoscopes, love comparisons, transits, progressions, and more.
This services are free for occasional users, but regular users are asked to pay a subscription.
In order to calculate the Ascendant through Free Horoscope, you need to provide the exact time of birth and the place of birth. The Ascendant is the sign that was on the eastern horizon at the time of birth, thus it is also called the Rising sign. The points separating the houses, also called cusps, are obtained by dividing the heaven into 12 parts. There are several different methods of dividing the sky, this site uses the Placidus system which is the most common. Placidus divids the houses according the zodiac plane, and since the world is spheric, the size of each house varies with the time of day and the latitude.
The “Name or nickname” field is used only to label the charts in your list of charts. Please do not put the real name in order to avoid recording personal data.
Enter the legal time at the date of birth, the program uses data bases to try to determine the time zone at that epoch. Note that this time zone is a legal matter, in some countries such as the United States it was very freely fixed by each county, city or state until the 1960’s. If the program cannot determine the time zone, it displays the most likely and asks you to confirm or modify it.
There are also countries such as in Eastern Europe during and following WWII where the country borders changed frequently and where the occuping forces applied their time zone but it is not certain what zone the local people used.
A last comment: since many people do not consider the exact time of birth to be important, the time on a birth certificate can well be the time the doctor saw on his watch when leaving the operating room, or the approximate time the grand-mother remembered later in the day.
A round time such as 10:00 or 1:30 (instead of 9:53 or 1:37) is most likely approximate. If the Ascendant cusp is in the middle of a sign this doesn’t change much. However, if the cusp is close to the neighoring sign, the Ascendant may be wrong.
If you ignore the time of birth, check “Time unknown”, the chart will be calculated at noon and the house will not be computed or used in other functions such as daily horoscopes or love comparisons.

In astrology, the zodiac denotes those signs that divide the ecliptic into twelve equal zones of celestial longitude. As such, the zodiac is a celestial coordinate system, to be more precise, an ecliptic coordinate system, taking the ecliptic as the origin of latitude, and the position of the sun at vernal equinox as the origin of longitude. Divided into 12 Zodiacs, starting with Aries and Pices as the last zodiac. Persond born in different zodiacs are governed by these zodiacs and they posses different charecteristics.

TFree horoscopehe division of the ecliptic into the zodiacal signs originates in Babylonian (“Chaldean”) astronomy during the first half of the 1st millennium BC, likely during Median/”Neo-Babylonian” times (7th century BC). The classical zodiac is a modification of the MUL.APIN catalogue, which was compiled around 1000 BC. Some of the constellations can be traced even further back, to Bronze Age (Old Babylonian) sources, including Gemini “The Twins”, from MAŠ.TAB.BA.GAL.GAL “The Great Twins”, and Cancer “The Crab”, from AL.LUL “The Crayfish”, among others.

Babylonian astronomers at some stage during the early 1st millennium BC divided the ecliptic into twelve equal zones of celestial longitude to create the first known celestial coordinate system: a coordinate system that boasts some advantages over modern systems (such as the equatorial coordinate system). The Babylonian calendar as it stood in the 7th century BC assigned each month to a sign, beginning with the position of the Sun at vernal equinox, which, at the time, was depicted as the Aries constellation (“Age of Aries”), for which reason the first sign is still called “Aries” even after the vernal equinox has moved away from the Aries constellation due to the slow precession of the Earth’s axis of rotation.

Because the division was made into equal arcs, 30º each, they constituted an ideal system of reference for making predictions about a planet’s longitude. However, Babylonian techniques of observational measurements were in a rudimentary stage of evolution and it is unclear whether they had techniques to define in a precise way the boundary lines between the zodiacal signs in the sky. Thus, the need to use stars close to the ecliptic (±9º of latitude) as a set of observational reference points to help positioning a planet within this ecliptic coordinate system. Constellations were given the names of the signs and asterisms could be connected in a way that would resemble the sign’s name. Therefore, in spite of its conceptual origin, the Babylonian zodiac became sidereal.

In Babylonian astronomical diaries, a planet position was generally given with respect to a zodiacal sign alone, less often in specific degrees within a sign. When the degrees of longitude were given, they were expressed with reference to the 30º of the zodiacal sign, i.e., not with a reference to the continuous 360º ecliptic. To the construction of their mathematical ephemerides, daily positions of a planet were not as important as the dates when the planet crossed from one zodiacal sign to the next.

Knowledge of the Babylonian zodiac is also reflected in the Hebrew Bible. E. W. Bullinger interpreted the creatures appearing in the books of Ezekiel and Revelation as the middle signs of the four quarters of the Zodiac, with the Lion as Leo, the Bull is Taurus, the Man representing Aquarius and the Eagle representing Scorpio. Some authors have linked the twelve tribes of Israel with the twelve signs. Martin and others have argued that the arrangement of the tribes around the Tabernacle (reported in the Book of Numbers) corresponded to the order of the Zodiac, with Judah, Reuben, Ephraim, and Dan representing the middle signs of Leo, Aquarius, Taurus, and Scorpio, respectively. Such connections were taken up by Thomas Mann, who in his novel Joseph and His Brothers attributes characteristics of a sign of the zodiac to each tribe in his rendition of the Blessing of Jacob.

The term zodiac derives from Latin zōdiacus, which in its turn comes from the Greek ζῳδιακὸς κύκλος (zōdiakos kyklos), meaning “circle of animals”, derived from ζῴδιον (zōdion), the diminutive of ζῷον (zōon) “animal”. The name is motivated by the fact that half of the signs of the classical Greek zodiac are represented as animals (besides two mythological hybrids).

When the degrees of longitude were given, they were expressed with reference to the 30º of the zodiacal sign, i.e., not with a reference to the continuous 360º ecliptic. To the construction of their mathematical ephemerides, daily positions of a planet were not as important as the dates when the planet crossed from one zodiacal sign to the next.

Knowledge of the Babylonian zodiac is also reflected in the Hebrew Bible. E. W. Bullinger interpreted the creatures appearing in the books of Ezekiel and Revelation as the middle signs of the four quarters of the Zodiac, with the Lion as Leo, the Bull is Taurus, the Man representing Aquarius and the Eagle representing Scorpio. Some authors have linked the twelve tribes of Israel with the twelve signs. Martin and others have argued that the arrangement of the tribes around the Tabernacle (reported in the Book of Numbers) corresponded to the order of the Zodiac, with Judah, Reuben, Ephraim, and Dan representing the middle signs of Leo, Aquarius, Taurus, and Scorpio, respectively.  Such connections were taken up by Thomas Mann, who in his novel Joseph and His Brothers attributes characteristics of a sign of the zodiac to each tribe in his rendition of the Blessing of Jacob.

Birth Month Horoscope

Birth Month HoroscopeIn Western astrology, astrological signs are the twelve 30º sectors of the ecliptic, starting at the vernal equinox (one of the intersections of the ecliptic with the celestial equator), also known as the First Point of Aries. The order of the astrological signs is Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces. The concept of the zodiac originated in Babylonian astrology, and was later influenced by Hellenistic culture. According to astrology of Birth month Horoscope, celestial phenomena relate to human activity on the principle of “as above, so below”, so that the signs are held to represent characteristic modes of expression, or primary energy patterns indicating specific qualities of experience, through which planets manifest their dimension of experience. The twelve sector division of the ecliptic constitutes astrology’s primary frame of reference when considering the positions of celestial bodies, from a geocentric point of view, so that we may find, for instance, the Sun in 23º Aries (23º longitude), the Moon in 7º Scorpio (217º longitude), or Jupiter in 29º Pisces (359º longitude). Beyond the celestial bodies, other astrological points that are dependent on geographical location and time (namely, the Ascendant, the Midheaven, the Vertex and the houses’ cusps) are also referenced within this ecliptic coordinate system. Various approaches to measuring and dividing the sky are currently used by differing systems of astrology, although the tradition of the Zodiac’s names and symbols remain consistent. Western astrology measures from Equinox and Solstice points (points relating to longest, equal and shortest days of the tropical year), while Jyotiṣa or Vedic astrology measures along the equatorial plane (sidereal year). Precession results in Western astrology’s zodiacal divisions not corresponding in the current era to the constellations that carry similar names, while Jyotiṣa measurements still correspond with the background constellations.In Western and Asian astrology, the emphasis is on space, and the movement of the Sun, Moon and planets in the sky through each of the zodiac signs. In Chinese astrology, by contrast, the emphasis is on time, with the zodiac operating on cycles of years, months, and hours of the day. A common feature of all three traditions however, is the significance of the Ascendant – the zodiac sign that is rising (due to the rotation of the earth) on the eastern horizon at the moment of a person’s birth.
Zodiac history and symbolismFurther information about Zodiac history and symbolism : Babylonian astrology, Hellenistic astrology and Egyptian astrology. The twelve ecliptic signs. Each dot marks the start of a sign and they are separated by 30°. The intersection of the celestial equator and the ecliptic define the equinoctial points: First Point of Aries (Aries.svg) and First Point of Libra (Libra.svg). The great circle containing the celestial poles and the ecliptic poles (P and P’), intersect the ecliptic at 0° Cancer (Cancer.svg) and 0° Capricorn (Capricorn.svg). In this illustration, the Sun is schematically positioned at the start of Aquarius (Aquarius.svg). While Western astrology is essentially a product of Greco-Roman culture, some of its more basic concepts originated in Babylonia. Isolated references to celestial “signs” in Sumerian sources are insufficient to speak of a Sumerian zodiac. Specifically, the division of the ecliptic in twelve equal sectors is a Babylonian conceptual construction. By the 4th century BC, Babylonians’ astronomy and their system of celestial omens were influencing the Greek culture and, by late 2nd century BC, Egyptian astrology was also mixing in. This resulted, unlike the Mesopotamian tradition, in a strong focus on the birth chart of the individual and in the creation of horoscopic astrology, employing the use of the Ascendant (the rising degree of the ecliptic, at the time of birth), and of the twelve houses. Association of the astrological signs with Empedocles’ four classical elements was another important development in the characterization of the twelve signs. The body of astrological knowledge by the 2nd century AD is described in Ptolemy’s Tetrabiblos, a work that was responsible for astrology’s successful spread across Europe and the Middle East, and remained a reference for almost seventeen centuries as later traditions made few substantial changes to its core teachings. The following table enumerates the twelve divisions of celestial longitude, with the Latin names (still widely used) and the English translation (gloss). The longitude intervals, being a mathematical division, are closed for the first endpoint and open for the second – for instance, 30° of longitude is the first point of Taurus, not part of Aries. Association of calendar dates with astrological signs only makes sense when referring to Sun sign astrology.

Vedic Astrology Nakshatra

Posted: October 13, 2014 in astrology
Tags: ,

NakshatraNakshatra (Sanskrit: नक्षत्र, IAST: Nakṣatra) is the term for lunar mansion in Hindu astrology. A nakshatra is one of 27 (sometimes also 28) sectors along the ecliptic. Their names are related to the most prominent asterisms in the respective sectors.
The starting point for the nakshatras is the point on the ecliptic directly opposite to the star Spica called Chitrā in Sanskrit (other slightly different definitions exist). It is called Meshādi or the “start of Aries”.[citation needed] The ecliptic is divided into each of the nakshatras eastwards starting from this point. The number of nakshatras reflects the number of days in a sidereal month (modern value: 27.32 days), the width of a nakshatra traversed by the moon in about one day. Each nakshatra is further subdivided into four quarters (or padas). These play a role in popular Hindu astrology, where each pada is associated with a syllable, conventionally chosen as the first syllable of the given name of a child born when the moon was in the corresponding pada. The nakshatras of traditional bhartiya astronomy are based on a list of 28 asterisms found in the Atharvaveda (AVŚ 19.7) and also in the Shatapatha Brahmana.[citation needed] The first astronomical text that lists them is the Vedanga Jyotisha. In classical Hindu mythology (Mahabharata, Harivamsa), the creation of the nakshatras is attributed to Daksha. They are personified as daughters of the deity and as mythological wives of Chandra, the moon god, or alternatively the daughters of Kashyapa, the brother of Daksha. Each of the nakshatras is governed as ‘lord’ by one of the nine graha in the following sequence: Ketu (South Lunar Node), Shukra (Venus), Ravi or Surya (Sun), Chandra (Moon), Mangala (Mars), Rahu (North Lunar Node), Guru or Brihaspati (Jupiter), Shani (Saturn) and Budha (Mercury). This cycle repeats itself three times to cover all 27 nakshatras. The lord of each nakshatra determines the planetary period known as the dasha, which is considered of major importance in forecasting the life path of the individual in Hindu astrology.
In Vedic Sanskrit, the term nákṣatra may refer to any heavenly body, or to “the stars” collectively. The classical sense of “lunar mansion” is first found in the Atharvaveda, and becomes the primary meaning of the term in Classical Sanskrit.

Nakshatras in the Atharvavedaj
In the Atharvaveda (Shaunakiya recension, hymn 19.7) a list of 28 stars or asterisms is given, many of them corresponding to the later nakshatras: (1) Kṛttikā (the Pleiads), (2) Rohinī, (3) Mrigashīrsha, (4) Ārdrā, (5) Punarvasu, (6) Sūnritā, (7) Pushya, (8) Bhanu (the Sun), (9) Asleshā, (10) Maghā, (11) Svāti (Arcturus), (12) Chitrā (Spica), (13), Phalgunis, (14) Hasta, (15) Rādhas, (16) Vishākhā, (17) Anurādhā, (18) Jyeshthā, (19) Mūla, (20) Ashādhas, (21) Abhijit, (22) Sravana, (23) Sravishthās, (24) Satabhishak, (25) Proshtha-padas, (26) Revati, (27) Asvayujas, (28) Bharani. [2] Interestingly enough, the term “nakshatra” has a different meaning as demonstrated in the “Surya Siddhanta” which is an ancient text on astronomy.

Nakshatras in the AtharvavedajIn the early chapters, the author, Mayasura or Mayan, describes various time units. He writes that a “prana” is a duration of 4 seconds. He then continues with a discussion of a number of time units with progressively long durations made up of the shorter time units all composed of a number of pranas. Amongst those time units are something he calls “nakshatra.” For example, there are 15 pranas in a minute; 900 pranas in an hour; 21600 pranas in a day, 583,200 pranas in a nakshatra (month). According to Mayan, a nakshatra is a time unit with a duration of 27 days. This 27 day time cycle has been taken to mean a particular group of stars. The relationship to the stars really has to do with the periodicity with which the moon travels over time and through space past the field of the specific stars called nakshatras. Hence, the stars are more like numbers on a clock through which the hands of time pass (the moon). This concept that nakshatra means a time unit has been lost and diverted to meaning a set of stars in the sky. This concept was discovered by Dr. Jessie Mercay in her research on Surya Siddhanta. It is documented in a textbook called “Fundamentals of Mamuni Mayans Vaastu Shastras, Building Architecture of Sthapatya Veda and Traditional Indian architecture.” (Mercay, 2006 – 2012, AUM Science and Technology publishers).

Astrology Prediction Birth Chart

Posted: October 11, 2014 in astrology

Indian AstrologyAstrology consists of several systems of divination based on the premise that there is a relationship between astronomical phenomena and events in the human world. Many cultures have attached importance to astronomical events, and the Indians, Chinese, and Mayans developed elaborate systems for predicting terrestrial events from celestial observations. In the West, astrology most often consists of a system of horoscopes purporting to explain aspects of a person’s personality and predict future events in their life based on the positions of the sun, moon, and other celestial objects at the time of their birth. The majority of professional astrologers rely on such systems.

Throughout most of its history, astrology was considered a scholarly tradition. It was accepted in political and academic contexts, and was connected with other studies, such as astronomy, alchemy, meteorology, and medicine. At the end of the 17th century, new scientific concepts in astronomy and physics (such as heliocentric and Newtonian mechanics) called astrology into question. Astrology thus lost its academic and theoretical standing, and common belief in astrology has largely declined. Astrology has been rejected by the scientific community as a pseudoscience, having no validity or explanatory power for describing the universe. Among other issues, there is no proposed mechanism of action by which the positions and motions of stars and planets could affect people and events on Earth that does not contradict well understood basic aspects of biology and physics.Scientific testing of astrology has found no evidence to support any of the premises or purported effects outlined in astrological traditions. In one study, participating astrologers attempting to match natal charts with profiles generated by a psychological inventory produced results not significantly at variance with random chance.

Indian HoroscopeAstrology has been dated to at least the 2nd millennium BCE, with roots in calendrical systems used to predict seasonal shifts and to interpret celestial cycles as signs of divine communications. A form of astrology was practised in the first dynasty of Mesopotamia (1950–1651 BCE). Chinese astrology was elaborated in the Zhou dynasty (1046–256 BCE). Hellenistic astrology after 332 BCE mixed Babylonian astrology with Egyptian Decanic astrology in Alexandria, creating horoscopic astrology. Alexander the Great’s conquest of Asia allowed astrology to spread to Ancient Greece and Rome. In Rome, astrology was associated with “Chaldean wisdom”. After the conquest of Alexandria in the 7th century, astrology was taken up by Islamic scholars, and Hellenistic texts were translated into Arabic and Persian. In the 12th century, Arabic texts were imported to Europe and translated into Latin, helping to initiate the European Renaissance, when major astronomers including Tycho Brahe, Johannes Kepler and Galileo practised as court astrologers. Astrological references appear in literature in the works of poets such as Dante Alighieri and Geoffrey Chaucer, and of playwrights such as Christopher Marlowe and William Shakespeare.

India & Japan Astrology

India & Japan AstrologyIn India, there is a long-established and widespread belief in astrology. It is commonly used for daily life, particularly in matters concerning marriage and career, and makes extensive use of electional, horary and karmic astrology. Indian politics have also been influenced by astrology. It is still considered a branch of the Vedanga. In 2001, Indian scientists and politicians debated and critiqued a proposal to use state money to fund research into astrology, resulting in permission for Indian universities to offer courses in Vedic astrology.

On February 2011, the Bombay High Court reaffirmed astrology’s standing in India when it dismissed a case which had challenged its status as a science.

In Japan, a strong belief in astrology has led to dramatic changes in the fertility rate and the number of abortions in the years of “Fire Horse”. Women born in hinoeuma years are believed to be unmarriageable and to bring bad luck to their father or husband. In 1966, the number of babies born in Japan dropped by over 25% as parents tried to avoid the stigma of having a daughter born in the hinoeuma year.
