In Astrology it is understood that at any point of time nature is governed by a planet and the position of that planet in the horoscope determines how the native will feel or behave. This chapter details the calculation of the planet acting at any point of time and the period for which the planet rules. There are three basic parameters in a horoscope : 1. planet 2. house and 3. Rashi (sign). Twelve rashis are spread over twelve houses; on an average one rashi occupies one house. However, rashi is exactly 300, whereas a house may vary in size and the starting of house may fall at any rashi at any point. It is equivalent to placing one circle over the other, both having same dimensions, but any one point on circumference of one circle can be made to align with any point on circumference of the other circle. The rest of the circle gets automatically placed. Similarly in a horoscope we determine the Lagna (first house position) and place the rashi circle over the rest of the twelve houses. After fixing the signs over houses we place the planets in the various houses. Since there are only nine planets and some planets combine together in a house, some houses are left empty. The planets possess some intrinsic properties and when mixed with the color of sign and house they occupy, they change their color, leading to different behavior, at different time of births. Study of this change in behavior of the planets is basic astrology. There are three basic reasons why planets behave differently, like 1. the house in which it is placed. 2. sign in which it is placed 3. other planets associated with it. Once the planet's behavior is ascertained because of its placement, the results are changed with time, depending upon Dasha operating at that time. Dasha tells us which planet is effective to give results at what time. To understand what the horoscope has in store for a native, let us study how the planets have corelation with life. We give below the basic nature of planets and houses and also what they signify.
