Dear Syamasundara Prabhu, thanks for responding to Gaura Kishor Das

Even modern astronomers agree with the sidereal zodiac and reject the tropical.

Physicist Georges Charpak and Professor Henri Broch, in their scientific book “Debunked”, published in France, seek to “unmask” mystical philosophies and beliefs, together with certain paranormal phenomena like levitation, walking on coals, and so forth. They use the following argument to demonstrate the alleged falseness of astrology:

“In fact, the zodiac birth signs so common in astrological columns, along the supposed personal qualities for those born under them, are mostly based on astronomical positions traced out thousands of years ago. The problem with this is that the axis of the Earth’s rotation is in continual change. The axis pivots, in a way similar to a spinning top, completing a revolution in about 25,790 years. As a result the zodiac signs in use today by astrologers do not correspond at all to the constellations represented when the charts were originally drawn up”

Charpak and Broch do not know that there is a system that takes into consideration that the axis of the Earth’s rotation is in continual change, and because of this they reject astrology all together.

Vedic astrology ki jaya!
