Why Time of Birth Is Important in Vedic Astrology

Since ancient times, Vedic astrologers have believed that the time of birth of every native is based on his past ‘karmas’. And so, Vedic Astrology uses the time, date, place of birth and the year in which the native is born, while making the birth chart for predictions.

Predictions made by Vedic astrology are considered to be highly authentic as they are also based on fixed zodiacs, ‘Nakshatras’, ‘Dasha’ and Divisional Charts.

The positions of the celestial bodies at the time of your birth are believed to affect every event that is likely to unfold in a native’s life. Since the Celestial bodies are constantly moving, it can sometimes be very difficult to know the exact birth time of an individual. The Ascendant, on an average, moves about 1 degree every four minutes. Thus, every minute counts. This is why knowing your correct birth time is important since each degree impacts your personality and hence, the accuracy of your reading. So, your birth time is important to calculate the positions of Ascendant, Sun, Moon and the planets to get an accurate reading.

Not only astrologers, but many expert psychologists too, agree to the fact that most twins born with even a minor time difference have major differences in their personalities and traits. This is why the time of birth of a native is considered to be of vital importance to make accurate calculations and predictions. The common agreement among the majority of Vedic astrologers is that predictions cannot be made without the native’s time of birth, maybe not till the exact minute, but at least till an approximate 5-10 minutes.

While Indian astrologers make predictions based on the movement of Moon, Western astrologers consider the movement and positions of the Sun. The Sun moves from one house to another every two hours.
