Future predictions that are based on Sun signs are extraordinarily popular around the world. Some people are so habitual of reading those predictions that they start their day with reading their horoscope only. Due to the growing popularity of Sun signs horoscope, now almost every newspaper, magazine and even the news channels have different blocks dedicated to astrology. The trend of astrology has also taken internet in its limits and is glowing successfully. Mostly, horoscope predictions are done keeping Sun signs in mind. But, there are very few people who are actually aware of the meaning of a Sun sign. Sun is considered as a planet in astrology and it has very powerful effects on all the natives. In astrology, the universe is divided into 12 parts and these 12 parts have different names that start from Aries and ends with Pisces. Now, wherever the sun is situated among these twelve parts at the time of your birth, that would be your Sun sign.
Every source into the business of delivering predictions has different criteria of prediction. Most of us read the forecast without giving specific attention to what it is based on. You might be wondering that why it is important to know on what the prediction is based. Well, you will be amazed to know that there are two ways of measuring Sun signs. One is a western way and the other is the way followed by Hindus (Vedic ways). Therefore, there is a huge difference between the western Sun sign and Vedic/ Hindu Sun sign. The reason behind this difference is that the western Sun sign is measured from a fixed point whereas changeable points are considered while measuring Sun sign in Vedic astrology. The difference in the point of orientation of both the Sun signs has been named as Ayanamsa. Therefore, rather than just reading any prediction, it is better to make sure that you are reading the correct one.
