There are no widespread studies that have been done to assess the accuracy of vedic astrology. However it has been widely followed by many people. You may use the readings at your own discretion. Shyam provides no guarantee whatsoever on the accuracy or the validity of the predictions
  • I don't know my birth time. Can I still get a reading?
    The whole premise of vedic astrology is based on having accurate birth time. However sometimes Shyam can validate/correct the birth time, if the time is +/- 2 hours of the actual birth time. Shyam can also answer single questions without your time of birth using a technique called Prsna or Horary system
  • Do I get a printed report of the discussions? Can I record the session?
    Shyam does not provide written analysis of the horoscope. You may record or take notes during the discussions.
  • What is the difference between Vedic Astrology and Western Astrology?
    From a technical point of view vedic astrology relies on the Sidereal system while Western astrology relies on Tropical astrology. You can read the difference in detail here, Additionally, Vedic astrology uses many factors in arriving at the prediction. These include birth horoscope, dasa periods and current transits. However, Western astrology only considers birth horoscope and transits. Dasa period is a system to time the events and it is one of the key aspects of Vedic astrology.
  • I don't believe in Astrology. What should I do?
    One does not have to believe in astrology. One can still get a reading and find out whether it works for you or not.
  • What are astrological remedies ?
    According to Vedic astrology everything is based on planet energies. When a particular planet's energy is weaker in your horoscope, it will affect the corresponding part of your life. For eg: Jupiter affects children. You can use other materials that represent the same planet energy to enhance that aspect of your life. For eg: Yellow Sapphire is believed to have the same energy as that of planet Jupiter. So if you have a weaker Jupiter in your horoscope, you can compensate for that by wearing a yellow sapphire stone.
