The undeniable fact is, every practice is depending on the local needs, whether food, cloth or education. Thus, according to the local needs, topographical conditions and customs, every subject is conceived. Here in this case too, the needs arose according to the local conditions. More so, Vedic Astrology is based on stellar system that is calculated from the Lunar months. Also, the twenty eight constellations is roughly taken into account for 360 degrees and variations in the Ayanamsa is also taken into account for the difference in remainder Nakshatra for any particular day. Here again, each stars known as nakshatra are divided into four equal quarters known as padam thus one gets 108 divisions within the 360 degrees of 12 signs, each sign having 30 degrees. So, the Vedic astrology deals to minutes of each persons birth chart that is more precise than western subject. Wherein, the Western system groups all those born in a specific month in one zodiac sign which is tend to give a mere rough prediction in general and would not be even near to the Indian system. (However, there is also another western method that uses almost same methodical calculations as that of Vedic Astrology, but this too based on Solar system). Moreover, the Sun signs allocated predictions are only indicative thus not giving the entire planetary alignment into thorough, such nakshatra Dasa, Moola Dasa or Ashtavarga pinda etc. as that of Vedic system. The same applies to the marriage star matching too, as one gets wider options to find the compatibility in Indian system. Now one can easily judge which is more accurate. So, it is recommended to follow Vedic System of Astrology which is more authentic and near accuracy can by found. The prevailing system of each countrys practice might differ, yet common. However, Hindu Indian Vedic Astrology system delves so deep and has more wider scope as far as prediction is concerned. Which is not available in the Western system. Nowadays, even the western astrologers are turning to the Vedic system to gain more insight.
