SCIENCE OF LIGHT : VEDIC ASTROLOGY
What is necessary is to study many charts on an individual basis, noting not only how the same specific planetary factors may occur in each but also how overall patterns relate. To study the occurrence of a disease in the human body we have to note many patterns and combinations of external and internal factors. It does not follow a few simplistic interpretations. Astrology must be approached with the same comprehensiveness and intricacy of approach as any science. If we do this we find a profound connection between the birth chart and the nature of our lives and characters. We find many connections between the charts of those of similar destinies. What remains an art in astrology is the spiritual interpretation of the chart, as this transcends outer factors. 

Classical Vedic astrology uses the seven visible planets; the Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus and Saturn, along with the two lunar nodes, the north and south nodes, Rahu and Ketu. Some modern practitioners incorporate Uranus, Neptune and Pluto but this is not necessary for an accurate reading.  The effects of the distant planets is not as crucial. Many of their effects can be discerned through the functioning of the lunar nodes. Yet though Vedic astrology uses fewer planets it requires more calculations than a regular western astrological chart as it goes into much more detail in regard to the location and strength of the planets. 

Vedic astrology uses the twelve signs and twelve houses and planetary aspects, much like western astrology but with some differences, particularly in regard to the aspects.
