Please clarify if I'm wrong. I want to study both in conjunction.
Thanks in advance...
I'm not sure what you mean by this, are you talking about just sun sign astrology? - which generalizes very much, but there is a whole lot more to western astrology than this..
I think there are quite a few threads discussing the differences between Western and Vedic astrology on this forum, and a number of different opinions on the topic.
In my opinion Vedic astrology can be very accurate in telling what is actually, factually happening in someone's life. Western astrology is more psychological oriented, which may generally suit the western mind more. Just my idea on this.
Personally I'm interested in both, i have studied western astrology much more and longer, whereas my understanding of vedic is limited - i'm trying to learn more about it.
