Astrology is known as the ‘Vedic science’ or ‘Jyotish’, as is derived and understood from the Vedas. Astrology has always been used and studied for the purpose of predicting future. Astrological studies revolve around the placement of celestial bodies in universe.
As profoundly said by Zolar, an American astrologer, author of “it’s all in the stars”-
“Astrology is like gravity.
You don’t have to believe in it to be working in your life”
Astrology is based on the system of planets, stars and other celestial bodies. Astrology’s existence ways back to the knowledge of planetary system and celestial bodies.

Astrology works upon the accurate description of the person’s date of birth, time and place. Without the knowledge of exact time, date and place of birth of the person the astrological charts cannot be made and nothing could be said about the individual.
3.Benefits of metal-
