I don't know how interested anyone really is in the sidereal zodiac and Vedic astrology, but i thought I would ask anyway.
When it comes to house lords, they obviously change around in sidereal due to ASC going backwards. For example, in western, my 7th lord Saturn is in the 10th house, but in Sidereal, my 7th lord is Jupiter in 5th.
Has anyone looked at this and compared? Which one did you find resonated more?
Hmm, I haven't checked mine, FruityLlama .. Will report back if I find anything of interest. To me, the trouble with trying to learn Vedic is that the structures themselves are different. It has the same letters, but it's a different alphabet. So, if we try to apply Western-type interpretations, they fail. It's also hard to find a good teacher who doesn't immediately adopt fatalistic interpretations and run with them. So I really don't use it much. It's good in the hands of those that know how to use it (definitely not me, lol). One thing that does resonate with me (to some extent), is the moon nakshatra. Beyond that, I don't know yet.
Amendment to the above: When I read the interpretations on Vedic sites (for various planets and aspects), they seem pretty correct! I think it's the same issue of me trying to wrap my head around both charts. But it's all me. Are you looking at sidereal on astro.com? The houses are a bit wonky there. I'd suggest getting your Vedic chart done on a Vedic site, and see how those interpretations line up? That works well for me. In Vedic I have Cap moon-Asc, among other things... Cancer in the 7th and I do love Cancer-types. Also, the compatibility mentioned for my chart works well too.
Its just a very different system. Most will try to apply the western interpretations to it, and most of the time this does not work. To do vedic one really has to detach from most taught in western and embrace a very diff system and also mindset.
