Frequently Asked Questions

Our Founder & Astrology
Our founder, Vikram, was always intrigued with Astrology and was introduced to it by his mother during his childhood. Being a curious mind himself, he would eagerly wait for Sunday to read the weekly forecast in their local daily. As he embarked on his professional journey, Vikram's connections with local astrologers faded, prompting him to seek guidance from new astrologers. Sometimes he went to them to seek advice on important life decisions, such as relationships, career, or personal growth. Other times it was to learn more about his personality, strengths, and challenges, or for many other reasons. Over the years Vikram has found that astrology-based guidance played the role of an invisible guiding force in his life, and is determined to bring that enlightening strength to the public.
Why build Melooha?
Unfortunately, the pool of talented astrologers is limited, and many of them are located in remote areas, speak only the local language, and have little to no online presence or advertising, making them hard to find. That made Vikram think, "If Astrology has helped me so much, why can't I implement a scalable solution with the use of the latest available technologies so that every human being on the planet can be benefited?". With thorough background research into the internal logic and mechanisms of Vedic Astrology, Vikram was convinced of the potential of a hyper-personalised Astrology as a service platform powered by AI, and so founded Melooha.
What is Melooha?
Seeking guidance is a basic human need. We have been going to our friends, family, GOD, and sometimes to professionals like Psychologists & Astrologers to fulfil this need. Melooha is an AI powered, hyper personalised Astrology platform that services this fundamental need. It provides personalised guidance based on an individual's unique birth details, including their specific date, place, and time of birth.
What does Melooha Mean?
"Melooha" takes its name from the ancient Indus Valley Civilisation, a place where "Rishis" and "Munis" would meditate to attain extraordinary abilities. This is also considered the birthplace of Astrology. Thus, the name "Melooha" aptly reflects the essence of this hyper-personalised platform.
What does the Melooha Logo Represent?
SUN, MOON, and STAR are the three pillars of astrology. The Sun to represents identity, energy, and personal goals. The moon represents our emotions, the wisdom within us, and the rhythms of life. And lastly the star. Melooha’s star is not meant to signify any one star. In astrology, the term “star” refers to any celestial body that looks down upon us, including planets. Melooha’s “star” represents the many stars that create flux and flow onto the different energies and qualities that permeate the world we inhabit.

The logo also has the "M" of Melooha, and gives a feeling of an "eye" into the future!
Who is Vaani?
Vaani is Melooha's chatbot who is the personification of the future that can answer your questions today. Vaani's meaning comes from the full name "BhavishyaVaani" which means future insights.

It utilises hyper-accurate measurements of the positions of planets and stars at the time of one’s birth and the present to offer profound insights into various aspects of existence. At its core, the same means by which the moon rises and recedes the tides, the moon's waxing and waning affects the changing tides of the human soul.

What is the difference between Western and Indian Astrology?
Western and Indian horoscopes, rooted in distinct astrological traditions, showcase notable differences in their approach to celestial interpretations. In the big picture, western astrology utilises the tropical zodiac and focuses on the sun's position through the twelve signs. Indian astrology utilises the sidereal zodiac and focuses on how the star constellations & moon signs position through the twelve signs. While both systems share the common thread of interpreting celestial positions, Western and Indian horoscopes employ different astrological methods, each offering a unique lens through which individuals seek guidance and self-awareness.
What are the main features of Western Astrology?
Western Astrology is a system of astrology that uses the tropical zodiac and incorporates solar signs, transits, and their progressions to provide guidance information based on each individual's natal chart. Western astrology aims to guide people by providing character-based personality insights and big-picture life events advice.
What are the main features of Vedic Astrology?
Indian horoscope, or Vedic Astrology, follows the sidereal zodiac, considering the actual positions of stars. It features twelve signs, aligning with star constellations, and placing significant importance on the Moon sign. The predictive techniques involve dashas (planetary periods), yogas (to unite), and gochara (transits).The purpose of Vedic Astrology extends beyond self-reflection, encompassing predictions related to life events, marriage compatibility, and guidance in decision-making.
What is Jaimini Astrology?
Jaimini astrology follows similar guidelines as Vedic Astrology but with a few important additions for greater insight into your personal life, relationships, and spiritual journey. Firstly, Jaimini astrology determines great periods in your life through signs instead of planets. Secondly, Jaimini utilizes sign aspects instead of planet aspects. When a planet is positioned in a sign, that planet will not only affect the sign occupied but also other signs whose aspect relates to the occupied sign.
