I do not conform very well at all to the modern Indian version of what astrology is supposed to be like, because I have tried to go back to source material and examine the science from that perspective. So, I think I should point you towards a few articles that will show my significant differences from mainstream “Vedic” astrologers.
First, my conception of “Vedic” astrology is rather significantly different than most people’s. This article explains: http://www.astro.com/astrology/in_vedic3_e.htm
The following is some discussion generated by this article: http://vicdicara.wordpress.com/2012/04/13/discussion-on-vedic-astrology/
Next it would be good to direct you to the details of my conception of the 12 zodiac signs and their correct Indian definition. The starter for that is: http://vicdicara.com/sidereal-and-tropical.php The followup for the details is: http://vicdicara.com/Reconciliation-of-the-Tropical-and-Sidereal-Zodiacs.pdf
