During May, 2020
By rasi (moon sign), I am not referring to your sun sign, i.e. sun's position in your natal chart.  Sun remains in the same sign for nearly 30 days. For example people born between 15.01.2014 to 12.02.2014 belong to the sun sign Capricorn. (makara rasi). This method is followed in Kerala, in some parts of Tamil Nadu and Malabar as well as in portions of  North East India. According to Western astrology which does not consider precession of equinox (ayanamsha) people born between 22.12.2013 to 20.01.2014 belong to sun sign Capricorn. In Hindu astrology the transit effects are considered from the sign occupied by moon (nirayana position) at the time of birth, called rasi.

On this page, the predictions are interpreted based on the cannons of Hindu astrology.  I would not say, Vedic astrology as in times of the vedas, ancient being Rigveda, astrology was used as calendar to perform specific religious duties and was not used for elections or predictive purposes.  However, we can find references to muhurta and predictive nature of astrology in grahya sutras and puranas.
