## How do I find my Ayanamsa?

As earth’s precession changes every year, the difference between the tropical zodiac and the sidereal zodiac changes. This difference is called “ Ayanamsa ” (sidereal difference). The actual Ayanamsa value must be deducted from the tropical length of each planet to get the sidereal length.

## What is sidereal Ayanamsa?

Sidereal and tropical are terms used to describe two different definitions of a year. In astrology, they refer to two different systems of ecliptic coordinates used to divide the ecliptic into twelve “signs”. Each sign is divided into 30 degrees, making a total of 360 degrees.

## Is sidereal astrology more accurate?

Ancient cultures — like the Egyptians, Persians, Vedics, and Mayans — have always relied upon the sidereal system.

## Who is NC Lahiri?

NC Lahiri was NOT an astrologer. He was a scientist and he was appointed by the Government of India to come up with an Ayanamsha that would lead to a common ephemeris (panchanga).

## Why is Sidereal astrology wrong?

The Eastern Sidereal system is astronomically accurate because it uses the Sun’s position in relation to the skies. Planetary movement is tracked against the fixed position of the stars- which honors astral positions accurately. The Western Tropical zodiac is based on the relationship of the Sun to the Earth.
