Man's attempt to unveil the future and know about the real nature and purpose of existence has been going on from time immemorial. Vedic astrology charts help provide the answers to these questions. The moon sign, which is of prime importance in Vedic astrology, is determined by the presence of moon in a particular sign at the time of birth. The Moon represents the heart, as well as the emotions connected to it. It represents the mother in astrological considerations.
The moon sign chart is prepared by considering the position of the moon as the ascendant and examining the horoscope based on Vedic astrological principles. The birth horoscope is the placement of planets in different signs at the time of birth at a particular latitude and longitude, however since the planets are not stationary, Vedic astrology gives a lot of importance to the transits. The transits or movements of planets are calculated with the moon as the standing point.
