It is mostly practised in Western countries considering the position of the Sun. It will divide the year into 12 periods and 12 signs. In these periods, the sun will be in different Nakshatra, and according to that, the planet will have positive or negative effects on its natives.

Vedic Astrology Or Western Astrology
Both Indian Vedic astrology and Western astrology are quite different from one another; in fact, we can say there is a fine line between these two. The Indian version of astrology considers the fixed zodiac. On the other hand, Western astrology uses a movable zodiac, considering the Earth’s centre point. Besides, there is a notable difference between these beliefs of astrology, which are mentioned below.
The origin of Vedic astrology was developed by the sages in ancient times. It is the foremost scripture on the Earth that represents the different zodiac signs. Whereas, Western astrology is highly influenced by Egyptian Culture. Western astrology is a form of divination from which astrologers can learn about Egyptian deities’ intentions to predict forthcoming events.

If Vedic astrology has a total of nine planets, including the Moon’s nodes Rahu and Ketu in their system, Western astrology considers these nine planets and three more planets to prepare the horoscope. They are Neptune, Uranus and Pluto. Indian astrology uses constellations (Nakshatras) to make predictions, while Western Astrology doesn’t make use of it.
