If you look at your birth chart in align27 and notice some of your planets are in different zodiac signs from what you are used to, don't be alarmed! It's possible you are used to seeing your chart in the Western astrological system, whereas here we use the Vedic, or Indian system of astrology.
Western Astrology uses the tropical zodiac, whereas Vedic astrology uses the sidereal zodiac. Each has their own way of dividing the 360 degree ecliptic - the plane of the Earth's orbit around the Sun - into the twelve zodiac signs of 30 degrees each.
The tropical zodiac is based on the unfixed sky, and is measured from the spring (vernal) equinox. In the tropical zodiac, it is at the spring equinox each year that the Sun is said to enter Aries, the beginning of the zodiac. However, this system is not based on the fixed stars themselves and doesn't take into account the ongoing change in the tilt of the earth called 'The Precession of the Equinoxes'. Instead of being based on the astronomical position of the constellations, the tropical zodiac is based on the orientation of the Earth to the Sun.
The sidereal zodiac is based on the planet's actual relationship to the constellations of zodiac stars, as per astronomical observation.
Whilst the tropical and sidereal zodiacs lined up around 2000 years ago, this is no longer the case. They have drifted apart and there is now a difference between them of around 23 to 24 degrees. This difference can create a significant difference when analyzing birth charts, and is the reason that someone can find some of their planets associated with a completely different zodiac sign when they look at the different systems of astrology.
It is not a matter of whether one is "more accurate" than the other, but there are some significant differences between the two to consider (see other FAQ's for more info). In addition to the twelve signs of the zodiac, the Vedic system also divides the sky into 27 Nakshatras, or lunar mansions, which each have their own characteristics, symbols and ruling deity. When it comes to analyzing a birth chart, using the nakshatras can give a deeper and even more detailed understanding of an individual.
Vedic astrology is also known as Jyotish, meaning the 'science of light,' and is thought to have been revealed by the great Rishis more than 5000 years ago. It dates back to the time of the great saint, Parashara Shakti, who was the grandson of the renowned sage Vasishta, and whose teachings are compiled in the ‘Brihat Parashara Hora Shastra’ which remains a fundamental text of Vedic Astrology.
Vedic astrology is a Moon based system, with importance also placed on the Lagna, or Ascendent which can only be calculated using the exact time of birth. Whilst the western Sun based astrological system is recognised for its ability to understand the psychological characteristics and personality of a person, the Moon based Vedic system guides us to our own inner knowing, helping us understand the journey of our soul and guiding us on our evolution towards our Self.

The sign that Jupiter is placed in at the time of your birth is called your Jupiter sign.
Jupiter, also known as Guru or Brihaspati, is the highly spiritual planet of expansion, wisdom and philosophy. Known as the most helpful of planets, its position in your chart indicates how you practice generosity, as well as how you bring justice to the world. Those born with a strong influence of Jupiter are likely to be honest, just and caring towards the wellbeing of others and society.
Jupiter is the symbol of devotion, prayer, divine grace and self-realization. It indicates whether there is an inclination towards spirituality, or to higher education such as university studies. Often, spiritual teachers have a strong placement of Jupiter in their birth charts, as do priests, teachers and those involved in law and social work.
This planet helps us see the world with optimism and recognise that something positive can be learnt from even the toughest or most challenging of situations. Jupiter is the indicator of wealth, children, happiness and luck and is often looked at in a chart when there are struggles or setbacks in these areas, as well as in the areas of health and relationships. When placed favorably, Jupiter brings wealth and good fortune.
The sign that Mars is placed in at the time of your birth is called your Mars Sign.
Mars is the planet of raw energy, drive and goal-oriented action. It signifies your energy, ambition and zest for life, and can indicate your strength and competitiveness. Its fiery nature expresses itself as impulsiveness, which can also turn into aggression and a readiness to fight. Mars is, afterall, the planet of war.
Whilst in a negative sense Mars can deal with issues of impatience, anger and conflict, on the positive side it represents courage, fearlessness and a willingness to take risks. A strong Mars is needed for success in business.
This planet signifies your passions - both in relationships and in life in general. Mars rules the circulation of life force in the body, as well as the blood flow. How physically strong and fit you are, whether your approach to life is more active or passive, and the kind of sports that attract you can all be indicated by the sign in which Mars is placed in your chart.
Rituals can be done to nullify the challenging aspects and enhance the positive effects of this fiery planet in your life, so you can invoke the courage and fearlessness within you. The align27 app shows you which rituals to do and when, based on your own personal birth chart.
Saturn, the ringed planet, is physically very dry and extremely cold. As it is the slowest moving planet and the furthest visible to the naked eye - positioned at the limit of our perception - it is considered to be the planet of darkness, restriction and death. Saturn can make us feel melancholy, fearful and doubtful of ourselves. As we strive to move forward in life and towards our goals, it slows down our plans and brings delays, obstacles and setbacks.
However we mustn't be fearful of Saturn, because as much as its lessons can be difficult, they can also bring maximum growth, and are therefore the most rewarding. Saturn is the Lord of Karma, and aims to put you through experiences which allow you to work through your karmic baggage and drop your attachments and desires. In doing so, the soul evolves and eventually reaches final liberation.
Though Saturn can be solemn, it gives us the seriousness and discipline needed to get through life's challenges. It brings structure, commitment and dependability and can help us achieve long term results. For spiritual aspirants, a strong position of Saturn is needed in order to have the discipline required to sincerely follow the spiritual path. The lessons taught by Saturn can bring dispassion, detachment and independence.
Saturn spends approximately two and a half years in each zodiac sign. The sign it was positioned in when you were born is called your Saturn sign, and this sign establishes your approach to fulfilling your ambitions, what you take responsibility for and how you seek control. Understanding and aligning with the sign that Saturn is placed in can help you to experience the positive side of this otherwise much feared planet.
Your Venus sign is the sign that Venus is positioned in at the time of your birth. It indicates sensitivity and refinement and governs your expectations in love and your approach to relationships.
Venus is the gentle planet of love, beauty, purity and harmony. It is concerned with bodily comforts and sense pleasures. Good taste, quality and aesthetic beauty are all ruled by Venus, which is responsible for wealth and life's comforts.
To an extent, the position of Venus in your chart governs the sort of person you are attracted to, as well as the way you enter into and sustain a relationship. Venus rules physical attraction. A strong Venus in your chart bestows you with an attractive, charismatic personality as well as the capacity to love.
As the indicator of children and the creative arts, including art, poetry, painting, music and dance, Venus brings creative energy and expression. Knowing your Venus sign can help you to discover your individual style of artistic expression.
