Vimshottari lines up with my major life events in a way it didn’t with any other ayanamsa. So I use it and try to figure out where it leads me to.
Hajo Banzhaff, a German speaking astrologer and tarot man (I don’t know if born in Germany, Austria or Switzerland), who died way too early once said, “the system is working for you, once you decided for it”, meaning, that, the moment you decide for one system/ayanamsa, tropical vs sidereal etc. it’s working – or not. So maybe there isn’t THE right ayanamsa for everyone, but one that’s working for you, one that’s working for me, depending on where you vs me come from historically, karmically etc. Maybe it’s the same as with religion. One finds the way to truth in Christianity, another one in Hinduism, the next one in Buddhism and so on.
In my opinion, each religion and ayanamsa reveals just one angle of vision on the ultimate truth, neither of them being better or worse, but maybe fitting better or less to your personal make-up.
So stay curious and play around and see what you get……
