Why My Sun Sign is Different in Horoscopes? Which One is Correct?

 

I get this query often and I am going to answer this. This question mainly comes from people who don’t know astrology in detail. There are two popular astrology systems in the world. One is Western astrology and the other is Vedic astrology. About 90% of the weekly and monthly horoscopes we see in magazines and online are based on western astrology. In both branches of astrology, the horoscope is written on the base of planetary movements and signs. 

The calendar marks the days the planet moves into a particular sign and its sail through that sign. The Western calendar and Vedic (Hindu) Calendar is different. The world, in general, follows the western calendar for the day to day life, but in India, and the majority of Hindu countries follow the Hindu Lunar calendar. The Western Calendar is based on the solar transit, but the Hindu calendar is based on lunar transit. 

In the natural zodiac wheel, the first sign is Aries, despite western or Vedic astrology. In western astrology, during March 21st the Sun enters Aries. Meanwhile, according to Vedic astrology, the Sun enters Aries on April 14
