Horoscope is known as Kundali in Vedic Astrology. A Kundali is the cornerstone of Vedic astrology, which is based on the ancient scripture called the "Brihat Parashara Horasastra" written by Sage Parashara several thousand years ago. Parashara is considered to be the Father of Astrology. It represents the position of planets at a specific time as seen from a specific place. In other words, it is the pictorial representation of planets at the time of birth. An astrologer uses Janam Kundali (horoscope prepared for the time of birth) or Prashna Kundali (horoscope prepared for the time of query) as the basic of his/ her prediction for the subject's life and future. The horoscope or Kundli is the basis of astrology and astrological predictions. Kundli works on mathematical principles, and that is why it generally gets quite accurate predictions. Kindli is also employed for matching the compatibility of prospective marriage partners. It is also widely used for calculating the auspicious time-frames for holding an auspicious activity, starting a new business, or, for that matter, starting anything new.
