Pindayu, Amshayu, Jeevasarmayu, Ashtakavargayu - These are all different elements I've read that are involved, even though I don't really know that much about them yet, I've read about systems as such as 77% accuracy in determining life-span and some that are seriously flawed.
Anyone know much about these systems or birth recitification ?
I'm not entirely familiar with Vedic, but I know enough that I can see that there are a huge number of similarities between Bedic and traditional (pre-19th century) astrology. Up until the 19th century, even western astrology was considered predictive. Many of the technigues (at least from what I have seen) in traditional western are very close to Vedic. This is no accident though. If you read some of the old Arabic astrological texts, they freely admitted a debt to the Vedic.
So to answer your question, recitification in Vedic and traditional western is extremely good. The techniques are much more complex and sophisticated than modern western. There are also very good systems for specific questions called horary charts.
