I'm learning Vedic astrology and LOVING it.

I have been wondering though if those of you here who are students (or gurus) use sidereal or tropical for your vedic chart??

I transitioned from Western background because I have been told that you can't beat Vedic for it's predictive astrology

Hello. Thanks for the tip! I actually just received his software as a birthday gift & with that I see the option to use sidereal or tropical. Pretty neat.

Which zodiac do you use, missblyss?

Ernst and his students like Ryan Kurczak use the tropical zodiac. But I believe they use sidereal nakshastra.

Hellos...Vedic Astrology is based on the sidereal system - defining the zodiac based on fixed constellation rather than tropical, which is based on Sun's movement around the Earth.

I am not an expert. Having said that, here is my take so far:

Sidereal.

The astrologers mentioned who use the tropical zodiac tend to have something in common- They use a thousand explanations to explain away why their basic interpretations are not working. Listen to their videos and you will see. Very often they will find someone's chart isn't making sense or matching up with their life, so they turn to the Vargas and other tricks to try to explain this away. Don't get me wrong- I believe there is a place for the vargas, especially the D-9 chart. However they are not reliable because your varga chart changes roughly every 4 minutes. So if your time of birth is off by even a few seconds your varga charts will all be different. Guess what- as someone who's worked in various pediatric wards in various hospitals I can tell you that very few people have their correct birth time listed on their birth certificates. Nurses rarely right down the correct birth time. They often wait until after the baby is cleaned up to record it and often they round up or round up the time. For this reason, the vargas are essentially useless. And yet these astrologers who use the topical zodiac tend to be more reliant on them than any of the other astrologers. If you simply use a normal lagna chart and forget about the vargas you will get a very accurate reading even if your birth time is a few minutes off.

Another point: KRS doesn't like to call himself a professional astrologer, but he's studied it a lot AND he has interviewed with and gotten many insights from all the famous astrologers- including the ones that use topical or sidereal. After knowing them and having all their insights and information at his fingertips which system does he trust more to choose to use himself?- Sidereal.

I'm NOT saying that the astrologers using tropical are not worthy. Many of them are very knowledgeable in their own right and you can get many insights from them, but I don't find their readings to be as precise as the astrologers that use sidereal. And because of the birth time issue be very wary of astrologers that rely heavily on Varga use.
