The Ancient Vedas which are said to be the oldest religious literature available has references to this science."Jyothisha or Astrology" is one of the limbs of the "Vedas" which date back to 1500 B.C.. Hindus were the original masters who had the thorough knowledge of astronomy and many rituals and religious rites were related to the position of planets and their motions. Astrology is a study of movement of Stars and Planets that have their influence on human lives.The influence of the SUN, MOON and other Planets at the time of birth of individual is said to shape its future, viz- personality, financial position, education, career, romance, marital relationships, luck, and children etc. Usually people refer Astrology as 12 zodiac signs, which are mostly based on Sun-Signs in astrology.
The sun sign is based on Individuals characteristic but moon sign determine individuals emotion, passion & instinct etc, so in Indian Vedic Astrology the predictions are based on Moon sign. Sun sign, which is based on a fixed period of time of nearly one month, where as in moon sign, moon moves 13-15 degrees every day and remains in one sign only for 2 and ¼ days, so the characteristics of individual changes with the quick movement of moon, just like our emotions.
As we know that during full moon tidal changes occur in the sea, which is due to the influence of moon, similarly moon influences the life of an individual. In order to calculate your moon sign, an astrologer needs to know the day, month, time & year as well as your place of birth for making predictions, as these predictions are more accurate than the sun signs.
Also we know that the Astrology is the study of group of stars known as Nakshatra or constellations, which increases understanding by considering planetary forces, signs & its positions etc. Astrology contains a great deal of knowledge regarding zodiac movements and its effects on people. Astrology is an approved science and its procedures have been scientifically examined and proved.

WHY WE CALL - “ASTROLOGY A PERFECT SCIENCE”
The Astrologer needs to be highly talented, intuitive and should have a good moral living and God fearing attitude. In the past “Varaha Mihira”, the greatest astrologer, who predicted all the events with exact dates and time.
The human body is made of about 80% water or fluid filled. The Planet Moon has the greatest power on mind as moon governs our mind. It is said in Vedas '' Chandramaa manaso jaatah”, i.e. Moon affects mind. You can observe the Ocean water level rise up on Full Moon and New moon days. Similarly all planets exert their power or vibration touch on human body. Similarly we see that on full moon day people get insane due to effect of moon on full moon day. Most of the crimes are committed during the full moon day as survey and research has been done in US as stated below :-
“At the University of Miami, psychologist Arnold Lieber and his colleagues decided to test the old belief of full-moon “lunacy” which most scientists had written off as an old wives’ tale. . When they matched the incidence of homicide with the phases of the moon, they found, much to their surprise, that the two rose and fell together, almost infallibly, for the entire 15 years! As the full or the new moon approached, the murder rate rose sharply; it distinctly declined during the first and last quarters of the moon. In the Horoscope there are 12 houses and Astrologers study all the planets & their positions correctly and also the aspects of the planet on other planets, depending upon their position in the birth chart only then they arrive at the correct decision or interpretation of any horoscope.
Our bodies are not exempt from the effect of gravity and our brain which answer to our systems, are also not exempt from the effect of these forces. Our level of intelligence and those of others around us are all affected by these forces and our actions depend on the condition of our body and mind. Our life is determined by what we do and what others do around us, under the influence of the combined forces of the planets and stars around our earth.
Thus we call “Astrology as a perfect Science”.
