Firstly, it is important to understand that Vedic (Indian) Astrology is not the same as Western Astrology in that Vedic astrology evaluates a person’s horoscope by their Moon sign and not their Sun sign. At the time and location of your birth, the planets were in certain positions in the sky. When we apply these planetary positions to the Vedic chart, it will then offer a map and points of reference specific to you. A person who was born in the same exact location and time will not have an identical chart, life, or expectations as yours because, in Vedic Astrology, we also use Nakshatras. Nakshatras tell us the level or strength of each placement according to their Pada. I use the North Indian mode of Astrology versus the South Indian mode. Your Vedic chart will look nothing like a Western astrology chart, so please do not compare them if you have a Western chart that you refer to.
I start with your Lagna chart which is your birth chart. This chart gives a general overview of your potential from the moment of your birth. It does not necessarily define your destiny and choices you’ve already made. It does tell me your potential and offers insight to things you may not have considered and ways to deal with any problematic areas.
Please understand that in Vedic astrology we do not use Uranus and Neptune planets. We do consider ascendants and we use a Northern node planet known as Rahu and southern node planet known as Ketu. Rahu and Ketu are significant in Vedic astrology. Like western astrology, there are 12 houses, and each house is ruled by a Lord. Each lord is represented by an astrological sign for your purpose, and it never changes. Consider the base as fixed.
Each house represents aspects of a person’s life. For example, the first house represents the mind, head, general appearance, self, identity, birth in the beginning and infancy. Additionally, it represents general health and personality trends. What these houses represent is also fixed.
Depending on your birth location, time and date will determine where the planets were at the time of your birth. Once this is determined their positions are then applied to the chart and they will be positioned in one of the 12 houses. It’s not unusual to see many planets in one house nor is it uncommon to see zero planets in a house, so don’t be alarmed should you see this in your chart.
Once the planets are mapped then the process of interpretation begins. How and where those planets are placed in each house is very important, including the planet’s aspect to other houses and of course whether your planets are direct, retrograde, combust, and their strength. Consider that not all planets are compatible with the houses they are placed in and some planets may be friendly, neutral, or enemies to each other. Where your planets place on the chart, depends solely on your birth time date and location. This is why it is imperative that your information be as accurate as possible.
Consider also that the planets are always moving and this is what is referred to as transits. Once I have recorded your birth chart, I use it as a base and at any time of the year, I can record the current position of the planets (transits) against your chart, then compare and interpret current and future events in your life.
