Casting and Predicting a Chart
There are two parts in astrology. One is the Casting the chart or deriving the chart from the persons date, time and place of birth as inputs. Second is the Prediction part which involves predicting the future of the person based on the casted birth chart.
Casting mainly involves mathematics and astronomy where we study the movements of planets and accordingly cast the chart based on the planetary position when the person is born.
Predicting involves in-depth study of the effects of various planets when in different zodiacs.This reqires lot of study of old astrology books, manuscripts and discussions with other astrologers and is much study involved.
While predicting a chart one has to observe the combined effects of planets, if any house is occupied by two or more planets it gives the combined effect.
Vedic Astrology is a vast and endless study and in order to predict accurately one has to study the subject for many many years and has to see the minor details as well as major details in a given chart, the different “Yogas” for a chart, etc.
