Introduction

Pemmaraju V.R.Rayudu, BE, M.Tech,
a former Senior Scientist and Deputy Director of Defense Research and Development Laboratory of Government of India, has been studying, researching, and practicing Hindu Astrology for the last four decades. Member of the AFA and author of the much acclaimed ‘How to Read A Horoscope’ & ‘How to Match Horoscopes’ is known for his authentic work in rare areas like Nadi Astrology. Though 70 yrs old & busy in his spiritual life his love for Saptarishis Astrology is there right from its inception stage.

The Rashi is divided into several divisions such as Hora (1/2), Drekkana (1/3), Chaturtamsa (1/4), Panchamsa (1/5), Shastamsa (1/6), Saptamsa (1/7), Ashtamsa (1/8), Navamsha (1/9), Dashamsa (1/10), Dwadashamsa (1/12), Shodashamsa (1/16), Vimshamsa (1/20), Siddhamsa (1/24), Bhamsa (1/27), Trimshamsa (1/30), Khavedamsa (1/40), Akshavedamsa (1/45), Shastiamsa (1/60), Navamsha-Navamsha (1/81), NavamshaDwadashamsa (1/108) etc., representing different aspects of life. It is known how to prepare these different divisional charts though with some differences in the approach. But there is no published literature for the correct utilization of these charts in interpreting the results. Nadi Amsha is the subtlest in the division of the Rashi. Some of the published literature on Nadi amshas has given the results. But nowhere it is

The 1st Nadi amsha of Capricorn. However. 2 hours duration is taken for each rashi. it amounts to 48 seconds in time duration (2 hours multiplied by 3600 and divided by 150 is equal to 48 seconds). Nadi Amshas B y now. In this article is given the explanation of the Nadi amshas. fixed and dual rashis in the zodiac. In dual rashis. out of my research. They are Aries-Taurus-Gemini. is from 0 degree to 0 degree 12 minutes. The 30 degrees of rashi divided by 150 would give 12 minutes of arc (30 degrees multiplied by 60 and divided by 150 is equal to 12 minutes). In Gemini dual rashi. to the end of rashi then continue from beginning of rashi and counted upto the middle of rashi. The above logic applies only within each set. the 2nd one from 29 degrees 36 minutes to 29 degrees 48 minutes and so on till the last 150th Nadi amsha is from 0 degree to 0 degree 12 minutes. 150th Nadi amsha of Leo. the 150th Nadi amsha in Taurus and the 76th Nadi amsha in Gemini are the same. the 2nd Nadi amsha is from 0 degree 12 minutes to 0 degree 24 minutes and so on till the 150th Nadi amsha which is from 29 degree 48 minutes to 30 degrees.published how to prepare the Nadi amsha chart and to interpret the results. the 150th Nadi amsha of Aquarius. Thus there are 150 Nadi amshas in a rashi and each Nadi amsha is of 12 minutes arc. In fixed rashis. There are four sets of moveable. The 1st Nadi amsha of Libra. and Capricorn-Aquarius-Pisces. in Aries moveable rashi. for the benefit of others. the 76th Nadi amsha of Sagittarius would-be the same. Thus it can be seen that 1st Nadi amsha in Aries. named Vasudha. If. they begin from middle of rashi. the 1st Nadi amsha of Vasudha is from the middle 15 degrees to 15 degrees 12 minutes. . the 76th Nadi amsha of Virgo would be the same. a Nadi amsha is 1/150th part of a rashi. most of the readers know what is a Nadi amsha. For example. the 76th nadi amsha of Pisces would be the same. the 1st Nadi amsha of Vasudha is from 29 degrees 48 minutes to 30 degrees. But it does not seem logical to apply this to all moveable. fixed and dual rashis. The 1st Nadi amsha of Cancer. methodology to prepare the Nadi amsha chart and interpretation of Nadi amsha chart. Cancer-Leo-Virgo. Libra-Scorpio-Sagittarius. The Nadi amshas are numbered in clockwise direction in moveable rashis from beginning to end of rashi. they begin from end to beginning of rashi anticlockwise. on an average. These Nadi amshas are given different names to recognize their interval periods. the 150th Nadi amsha of Scorpio. the 2nd one from 15 degrees 12 minutes to 15 degrees 24 minutes and so on till the 75th Nadi amsha is from 29 degrees 48 minutes to 30 degrees and then the 76th Nadi amsha starts from the beginning of 0 degree to 0 degrees 12 minutes. the 1st Nadi amsha. the 77th from 0 degree 12 minutes to 0 degree 24 minutes and so on till the 150th one is from 14 degrees 48 minutes to 15 degrees. In Taurus fixed rashi.

the 2nd I Taurus. the Nadi amshas are counted clockwise from the beginning to the end of the rashi. the 1st Nadi amsha falls in Libra. In Cancer moveable rashi. The 150th Nadi amsha in Taurus from 0 degree to 0-12 is the same as the 1st Nadi amsha of 0 . the table of Nadi amshas is given in Appendix I to this article. as taken from my article “A Note on Nadi amshas” published by “Vedic Astrology” magazine November-December 1998. if Ascendant (lagna) or any other planet in rashi chart in Aries rashi is in 1st Nadi amsha of 0 degree to 0 degree 12 minutes. That means. the 3rd in Pisces and so on till the 150th falls in Gemini. fixed and dual rashis. the 2nd in Aquarius. if from 0-12 to 0-24 it falls in Taurus in Nadi chart. and so on till if it is between 29-48 to 3000. In Capricorn moveable rashi. Libra or Capricorn in rashi chart should be place in Nadi chart depending on the degrees and minutes in rashi chart and the number of the Nadi amsha. Similarly the ascendant or any other planet in Cancer. V. the 1st Nadi amsha falls in Capricorn.Table of Nadi Amshas For ready reference. In Libra moveable rashi. The list is also given the in the book “Devakeralam” by late Sri R. the 1st Nadi amsha falls in Aries itself. the 3rd in Virgo and so on till the last 150th falls in Sagittarius. the 3rd in Gemini and so on till the 150thfall in Virgo. it is essential to rectify the given birth time as per my article ” Tatwa/Antartatwa Siddhata-Birth Rectification” published in ” The Times of Astrology” magazine June 2002. the 1st Nadi amsha of 29-48 to 30-00 is the same as the 150th Nadi amsha of 29-48 to 30-00 in Aries moveable rashi. it falls in Aries rashi itself in Nadi amsha chart. The names of the Nadi amshas may differ but the duration of the intervals are the same in all the sources. In Taurus fixed rashi. the 1st Nadi amsha falls in Cancer. the Nadi amshas are counted anti-clockwise from the end to the beginning of the rashi. This method would rectify the birth time to match the male / female births as per the day. the 3rd in Sagittarius and so on till the 150th falls in Pisces. lagna. the 2nd in Leo. it should be place in Virgo in Nadi chart. Fixed Rashis I n fixed rashis. the 2nd in Scorpio. Raman. Preperation of Nadi Amshas Chart Before preparing the Nadi amsha chart. Hence in Aries moveable rashi. and Moon star and tatwa upto a difference of 24 seconds in birth time. Santhanam and in “The Astrological Magazine” of late Sri B. Moveable Rashis I n moveable rashis. An attempt is made here from fundamentals of explanation of Nadi amshas to give a methodology to prepare a Nadi amsha chart for different sets moveable.

the 150th Nadi amsha of Libra falls in Pisces and so the counting for Nadi amshas in Scorpio should start from Pisces anticlockwise. the 1st Nadi amsha of Taurus should start from Virgo and go anti-clockwise. Similarly in the third set of Libra-Scorpio-Sagittarius. In Gemini dual rashi. the ascendant or any planet in 10-58 in Scorpio in rashi chart should be placed in Aries in Nadi amsha chart. If ascendant or any planet were in 24-40 in Aquarius. the Nadi amshas are counted clockwise from the middle to the end of the rashi and then counting continued from the beginning to the middle of the rashi. the 2nd from 29-36 to 29-48 in Leo and so on till the 150th of 0 degree to 0-12 falls in Aries. it falls in the 46th Nadi amsha of 20-48 to 21-00 and so count 46 anti-clockwise from Sagittarius. If ascendant or any planet is in 10-58 in Scorpio. Therefore the ascendant or any planet in 24-40 in Aquarius in rashi chart should be placed in Aries in Nadi amsha chart. which would be Libra. The 75th Nadi amsha of Gemini from 29-48 to 30-00 is same as the 150th in Aries. if in Leo start counting from Sagittarius anti-clockwise. Therefore. which would be the 96th Nadi amsha and so count 96 anti-clockwise from Pisces. the 1st Nadi amsha of 15-00 to 15-12 is the same as the 76th Nadi amsha of 15-00 to 15-12 in Aries moveable rashi. the counting of Nadi amsha of that should start from Virgo anti-clockwise. the 1st Nadi amsha of Leo is the same as the 150th Nadi amsha of Cancer. the . If the ascendant or any planet is in 20-51 in Leo. Thus the crux is that if the ascendant or any planet is in Taurus. Therefore. if in Scorpio start counting from Pisces anti-clockwise and if in Aquarius start counting from Gemini anti-clockwise. it falls in the 96th Nadi amsha in Taurus from 10-48 to 11-00 and so count 96 anti-clockwise from Virgo. it would be in 27th Nadi amsha and so count 27 anti-clockwise from Gemini. As already seen in Aries. matching with 14-48 to 15-00. Similarly in the fourth set of Capricorn-Aquarius-Pisces. the counting for Nadi amshas in Aquarius should start from Gemini which is the 150th in Capricorn. 150th Nadi amsha of Aries falls in Virgo and 1st falls in Aries. which would be Aries. which would be Pisces. Therefore. The 76th Nadi amsha in Gemini from 000 to 0-12 is same as the 1st in Aries. The 150th Nadi amsha in Gemini from 14-48 to 15-00 is same as the 75th in Aries i.degree to 0-12 in Aries. the ascendant or any planet in 20-51 in Leo in rashi chart should be place in Pisces in Nadi amsha chart. the ascendant or any planet in 10-58 in Taurus in rashi chart should be placed in Libra in Nadi amsha chart. As already explained above.e. Similarly in the second set of moveable-fixed-dual rashis of Cancer-Leo-Virgo. which would be Aries. Dual Rashis I n dual rashis. So the counting of Nadi amshas in Leo should start from Sagittarius anti-clockwise. Suppose if ascendant or any planet is in 10-58 in Taurus. The 150th Nadi amsha of cancer is Sagittarius. Therefore.

Similarly in the third set of Libra-Scorpio-Sagittarius. and the 1st in Aries and the 75th in Gemini. and to count 18 from Libra clockwise. . the ascendant or any planet in 18-27 in Gemini in rashi chart should be placed in Sagittarius in Nadi chart. 76th in Aries and 150th in Gemini. 76th in Sagittarius is same as 1st in Libra and the 150th in Sagittarius is same s 75th in Libra. So the counting of Nadi amshas in Sagittarius from 1st to 75th should start clockwise from Capricorn till the 75th in Pisces. Therefore. which would be Gemini. the 1st Nadi amsha in Virgo is same as the 76th in Cancer. it falls in the 82nf Nadi amsha in Virgo and so count 82 clockwise from Cancer taking 76 as Cancer. The 76th in Virgo should start clockwise from Cancer till the 150th in Virgo. The 76th in Gemini should start clockwise from Aries till the 150th in Gemini. the 150th in Virgo. Suppose the ascendant or any planet is in 18-27 in Gemini. Similarly in the second set of moveable-fixed-dual rashis of Cancer-Leo-Virgo. it falls in the 18th Nadi amsha of Sagittarius and so count 18 from Capricorn clockwise. Therefore the ascendant or any planet in 1-10 in Virgo in rashi chart should be place in Sagittarius in Nadi chart. the 1st Nadi amsha in Sagittarius is same as the 76th in Libra. Suppose if the ascendant or any planet is in 18-27 in Virgo. Suppose the ascendant or any planet is in 1-10 in Gemini. 76th in Virgo is same as 1st in Cancer and the 150th in Virgo is same as the 75th in Cancer. it falls in the 82nd Nadi amsha in Gemini from 1 degree to 1-12 and so count 82 clockwise from Aries taking 76 as Aries. So the 1st Nadi amsha in Gemini should fall in Cancer. O the counting of Nadi amshas in Virgo should start from Libra clockwise till the 75th falls in Sagittarius. Therefore the ascendant or any planet in 1-10 in Gemini in rashi chart should be placed in Virgo in Nadi chart. it falls in 82nd Nadi amsha in Sagittarius and so count 82from Libra clockwise taking 786 as Libra. Therefore the ascendant or any planet in 1827 in Virgo in rashi chart should be placed in Pisces in Nadi chart. which would be Virgo. which would e Pisces. So the counting of Nadi amshas in Gemini should start form Cancer clockwise from the 1st Nadi amsha till the 75th in Virgo. The 76th in Cancer falls in Libra. Suppose if the ascendant or any planet is in 1-10 in Sagittarius. the 75th in Sagittarius is same as 150th in Libra. which would be Sagittarius. 75th in Virgo. which would be Pisces and therefore should be place n Pisces in Nadi chart. 75th in Virgo is same as 150th in Cancer. Therefore the ascendant or any planet in Sagittarius in 18-27 in rashi chart should be placed in Gemini in Nadi chart. The 76th in Libra falls in Capricorn. it falls in the 18th Nadi amsha in Virgo.76th Nadi amsha falls in Cancer. it falls in the 18th Nadi amsha in Gemini from 18-24 to 18-36 and so count 18 clockwise from Cancer. which would be Sagittarius. Suppose the ascendant or any planet is in 1-10 in Virgo. Suppose if the ascendant or any planet is in 18-27 in Sagittarius. The 76th Sagittarius should start clockwise from Libra till the 150th in Sagittarius.

the 4th not aspected by any planet and the 4th lord Saturn in 6th house .Saturn 23-51. Venus in Libra ascendant in own house has not given any proficiency in his musical interests. He lives on pension & in his own house with his wife studying astrology and Vedanta.Ketu 27-16. Aries.Jupiter 2-7. Therefore the ascendant or any planet in 23-51 in Pisces falls in 45th Nadi amsha in Pisces from 23-48 to 2 degrees. which would be Sagittarius and therefore should be placed in Sagittarius in Nadi chart. Taurus-Moon. He has only one son settled abroad. Aquarius. it is difficult to interpret his activities in Defence research. Venus 7-4. The above rashi and Nadi charts are broadly analyzed to check which one would give better interpretation. After retirement he continued his hobby of astrology doing researh. Example of Nadi Chart Based on the above methodology. In the rashi chart. Capricorn. the Nadi chart is given below for the ascendant and planets in rashi chart. Sagittarius-Mercury. Sun. Virgo-Venus. He has own house and vehicles.Mercury 5-59.Jupiter.moon 20-9. Rasi Chart: Libra-Ascendant 5-54. Scorpio. Mars. If ascendant or any planet is in 1-10 in Pisces. Leo. Leo. Mars 633. Sun 20-51 Nadi Chart: Pisces-Ascendant. The 10th lords in 4th alone in Moon star without any aspects from any other planet. writing articles. which would be Gemini and therefore should be placed in Gemini in Nadi chart. it falls in 82nd Nadi amsha in Pisces and so count 82 from Capricorn clockwise taking 76th as Capricorn. the counting of Nadi amshas in Pisces from 1st to 75th should start from Aries clockwise till the 75th falls in Gemini. From this. Rahu 27-16. The 76th Nadi amsha in Pisces should start clockwise from Capricorn till the 150th falls in Pisces. Saturn. the 10th house is vacant aspected by the 10th lord Moon. astrology and Vedanta. Aquarius-Rahu Interpretation of Nadi Chart T he person of the above rashi chart is a mechanical engineer retired from Government Defense Research service.Similarly in the fourth set of Capricorn-Aquarius-Pisces. giving lectures and consultations. So count 45 from Aries clockwise. He also travels in India and abroad. Pisces. getting awards in astrology. He has moderate health. The Moon in 4th. He also knows Vedanta and Veena musical instrument to some extent.Ketu.

In the Nadi chart. Thus from the above broad analysis the Nadi chart gives better interpretation than the rashi chart. vehicles and education. The 2nd and 9th lord Mars in ascendant associated with 6th lord Sun and 11th and 12th lord Saturn have given moderate wealth and prosperity. It is also not claimed that the above methodology to prepare the Nadi chart is correct. Jupiter in 5th house aspected by Sun. it is the subtlest available means to interpret better results. Mercury and Mars and the 5th lord Saturn in 6th house with exchange (parivartana) with Jupiter should have given more children. Saturn and Mercury in 10th house. 11th lord Saturn has given good house.aspected by Mars should have obstructed having his own house. It is an earnest request once again to all the astrologers and other government . 9th lord Mercury and 11th lord Sun in 11th should have given big wealth and prosperity. vehicles and education. The 2nd lord Mars. The 6th lord Sun in ascendant aspected by 8th lord debilitated Venus has given moderate health though ascendant lord Jupiter aspecting the ascendant. particularly whether lordship of houses can be taken or not in the divisional charts. Debilitated Venus has not given much progress in musical pursuits. 10th and 1st lord Jupiter in Scorpio of Mars with exchange with Mars would give better interpretation about his activities in Defense research. The idea in writing this article is to stimulate the expert astrologers to come out with better research to delve deep into this subject to interpret better results by studying all the divisional charts including the subtlest Nadi amsha chart and to publish the same for the benefit of others. The 5th house aspected by Jupiter and 5th lord Moon exalted has given one son. 2nd and 9th lord mars. it is not claimed that the analysis of the Nadi chart as given above is correct. When there is no published literature to correctly interpret the all the other known divisional charts. The 9th and 12th lord Mercury with enemy mars should have obstructed his travels. The subject of astrology is already having its natural death with superficial knowledge and interpretations of commercial interest and without any deep research and published literature. The 4th house aspected by 4th lord Mercury. The transits of planets in both the charts can also be compared to check the results though it is not done here. Ascendant lord Venus in the ascendant and 6th lord Jupiter In 5th with exchange with Saturn should have given good health. Conclusion S ince the Nadi amshas differentiate upto 48 seconds in birth time. Jupiter in 9th and 9th lord Mars in ascendant with exchange with ascendant lord Jupiter and 12th aspected by 11th and 12th lord Saturn has given the travels. astrology and Vedanta.
