In the Vedic astrology system, the predictions are done based on planetary conditions. The birth charts are also known as Kundli are designed by calculating the positions of the planets at the time of the birth and predictions are done accordingly.
It is somehow based on Indian astrology style. The only difference is that the calculations are based on zodiac signs. The zodiac signs are calculated according to your birth date and month.
In this, there are 12 animal signs like tiger, dragon, pig, snake, etc. The astrology here follows lunar calendar principles that consist of the 12-year cycle. Each year is dedicated to one of the animals that are decided by the revolution period of Jupiter and the Sun. The future predictions are done based on 5 important planets including, the sun, moon, and comets positions at the time of a person’s birth.
It is the prediction that is based on the numbers which are derived from the user’s birthdate. It calculates the whole birthdate. For example, the date of birth is 24 December 1995, so it will add 24+12+1995 and keep the figures adding till it comes into single-digit like this- 2+4+1+2+1+9+9+5= 33= 3+3=6.
It is believed that these numbers determine the person’s characteristics and have an important role in predicting the future. Each sign is designated to one planet. And planets of course show high dominance in future prediction.
In Palmistry, the person can predict the future of the person by reading the hand of the other. They read the moles, marks, and lines of the hand and tell what are the future possibilities for the person in their life. Palmistry Coach App is one example of it.
In this type of reading. The person predicts the future with cards that they shuffle and lay down. The cards that come for a particular question or prediction, in general, tell what holds in the future.
The card reader reads the card and interprets what the message is coming through the card spread to the user.
In this type of fortune practice, the person gazes and observes the crystal balls and on the basis of that predicts the future. This is the practice of fortune-telling that has been followed in many countries for centuries.
Astrology is not the thing of today but going from ages. Especially, if we look up to our mythologies and medieval times, the astrology and predictions held strong positions.
Even if we talk about today, no matter we are getting food delivered at a single mobile tap. We still pray to our lords when we are doing something new.
