Difference between Astronomy and Astrology Astronomy - This is a science of the celestial objects in the universe. This does not take in to consideration their effects on the living or non living things existing in the universe. However the astrologically considered celestial objects (in their existing order) are as follows. SUN--Mercury--Venus--EARTH--Mars--Jupiter--Saturn--Uranus--Neptune--Pluto Note: The Moon is not plotted above as it revolves around the Earth. Relative Distances are as follows. The distance between the EARTH and the SUN is 9,30,03,000 miles. Let us consider this as 1 unit. The distances of the other planets from the SUN are as follows. Mercury ----- 0.42 units Mars -------- 1.5 units Uranus ------ 19 units Venus ------- 0.7 units Jupiter ------- 5 units Neptune ----- 30 units Earth ------ 1 unit Saturn ----- 9 units Pluto ------ 40 units
Astrology - This is Applied Astronomy in Day Today Life. This takes in to consideration effects of above mentioned celestial objects on the living or the non living things existing in the universe. In a way it is the 'functional' or the 'applied' study of the planets. In addition to the above mentioned 10 planets two more hypothetical planets namely Rahu and Ketu are also considered. Rahu and Ketu : -- They are not the real physical celestial objects. The Earth and the Moon have very little angle in their path around the Sun. The two points of the intersections of their path are known as Rahu and Ketu. Rahu and Ketu are also considered very important in the Hindu Astrology.
Basics of the Birth Chart / Janma Kundali
'Houses', 'Bhavas', 'Sthanas'.
The Birth Chart used in the Hindu Vedic Astrology is shown as above. This is the most common way of depicting the Kundali especially in the Northern India. In Southern India the Chart is depicted in a Square format. However I will be using the above mentioned Chart Format. In any Chart/ Kundali there are 12 compartments which are called 'Houses', 'Bhav', 'Sthan'. The topmost house is counted as the first house. (Number 1 House in the figure.) Then subsequently all the other houses are counted in anti-clockwise direction. Planets, 'Grahas' There are total 12 planets, 'grahas' considered in astrology. Ancient Vedic Astrology only 9 planets are considered. The recently discovered 3 planets namely Uranus ('Harshal'), Neptune and Pluto were obviously not considered. However it is wise to consider all 12 planets. The 12 Planets are as follows.

Rashi rising at the Eastern horizon at the time of the birth is the Ascendant or the Lagna. and hence the ascendant or the lagna the starting point of the chart is going to change.e. called a Rashi or Sign. Rashis are written in the next . Hence the Birth Chart or the Janma Kundali is the diagrammatic representation of all the planets at the precise moment of time of the birth. However since these cosmic points have considerable influence on the nature they are considered as planets in the astrology. Rashis as follows. The subsequent Signs.

Signs.They are revolving around the Sun in their respective orbits. 360 degrees of a full circle are divided in 12 equal parts. Rashis revolving around us. each of 30 degrees. Same way every 4 minutes the Ascendant or the Lagna degree is going to change. As you are all aware that the Moon is a satellite of our Earth. Rahu and Ketu are not the actual planets at all. Easy Example : Suppose the birth was at about 7:00 A. As you must have gathered that at about every 2 hours (Division : 24 hours/12 signs) a new sign is going to rise. That means the Sun . just after the sunrise. Sign No.

Generally predictions are based on permutations and combinations of these elements. Cancer.Entire astrology is based primarily on nine planets. These twelve zodiac signs are Aries. We will discuss about Nakshatras at length later in this series. Som) (Mangal. Names of nine planets are as follows: Planet Sun Moon Mars Mercury Jupiter Venus Saturn North Node South Node . Aquarius and Pisces. there is no need to go much into the mathematical portion and it is enough to know now that each zodiac sign is of 30 degrees. Let us have a look at it: Zodiac Sign Aries Taurus Sanskrit Name Mesha Vrishabha Governing Planet Mars Venus . Capricorn.

it is considered benefic and if placed with malefic. we learnt about zodiac signs. nature of Mercury depends upon the nature of planet influencing it. Saturn. It should be remembered that all natural malefic planets do not always produce negative results. Those were very important concepts and. Firstly.

Similarly.Gemini Cancer Leo Virgo Libra Scorpio Sagittarius Capricorn Aquarius Pisces Mithun Karka or Karkata Simha Kanya Tula Vrishchik Dhanu Makar Kumbha Meena Mercury Moon Sun Mercury Venus Mars Jupiter Saturn Saturn Jupiter In previous article of this series. we are going to know about categorization of planets and signs. Similarly.e. Good or bad effect depends up on several other factors like ownership. placement and aspects etc. sign placement. planets are classified into two groups namely benefic and malefic as follows: Natural Benefic Planets: Moon. and friendly sign (mitra-rashi) in this order. the Moon near Purnima is considered benefic.e. Moon near Amavasya is believed not to be benefic. Rahu and Ketu are considered malefic by nature Generally. any planet gives positive results in exalted sign (uchcha rashi). Generally. planets and their ownership. before proceeding to this part. Mercury. Full Moon i. all natural benefic planets do not always give positive results. Now. In other words. Let us start with first factor i. We will discuss these factors later. which is crucial for learning predictive astrology. On the other hand. exalted planets give best results. Venus and Jupiter are considered benefic by nature Natural Malefic Planets: Sun. Moon and Mercury are not always benefic. it is recommended to read Part-1. while „No Moon‟ i. planets in own sign give second best results and planets in friendly sign gives third best result. In other words. if Mercury is placed with benefic planet. if we want to quantify. Mars. if possible. it is considered malefic. try to memorize those concepts.e. if a planet is positioned in debilitated sign (neecha-rashi) or enemy‟s sign (shatru-rashi).

this is just a rough formula and there are some exceptions to it which you can note down from above table. which are placed in the signs of friendly planets or located with friendly planets. if Sun is with Moon. Mainly horoscope is drawn in three major ways – north Indian style. Sun will be weak in giving its results. It means signs are depicted “anti-clock wise” and the number corresponding to zodiac sign is shown in each box. Mars or Jupiter who are friendly to Sun or in their signs. Saturn. In other words. it should generally give good results. and we will talk about houses a little bit later. How to use above table? Those planets. You can see from above table that Saturn and Sun are inimical to each other. produce positive results. it will not be able to give its good results. Roughly we can classify planets into two groups that are inimical to each other: Group 1: Sun. Let me take an example. Rahu and Ketu As I said earlier. In north Indian diagram of birth chart. Mars and Jupiter Group 2: Mercury. On the other side. south Indian style and Bangla (East Indian) style. To keep it simple.e. ascendant sign is written on very first place and then signs are shown from right to left. A birth-chart (also called Kundli or Horoscope in India) can be called a map of planetary positions at the time of birth. So if Sun is posited in sign of Saturn i. we will restrict our discussion to north Indian style only. Venus. There are several different ways of portraying birth-chart in different parts of India. Similarly. Moon.I am sharing a simple but rough formula to memorize above table. Capricorn or Aquarius or Sun is situated with Saturn. We have already discussed about the planets and zodiac sings. if a planet is situated in sign of enemy planet or positioned with an enemy planet tends to produce diminished positive results. It can be understood better with following example chart: . A birth chart tells about the position of planets in houses and signs.
Anything written in that gray box will be called in “first house. we look at the position of grayed box above. lord of second house is called second-lord. Moon and Mars are in Cancer sign because „4‟ is written in the box where they are posited. “11” can be seen written in first house. In above illustration. out of which eight are triangular and four are rectangular in shape. The lord of first house is also known as ascendant-lord. Moon and Mars are in sixth. The next one from second house is called third house and so on.” When we start counting anti-clock wise from first house. Gemini. House-lord (Sanskrit: ) As we know. Position of Planets in signs It is comparatively easier to determine position of planets in zodiac signs. We have studied in previous lesson that lords of Aquarius and Pisces are Saturn and Jupiter respectively. Sun and Mercury are in seventh. house and ascendant are known as bhaav ( ) and lagna ( ) respectively. “house” and “sign” are two different concepts. Position of planets in houses If we start counting from gray rectangle to the house where Venus and Rahu are placed in example chart.g. Jupiter is the second house lord and so on.e. The number written in the box where planet is posited shows position of the planet in sign. This is known as position of planets in different houses. in astrological language we will say that lord of first house is Saturn (because „11‟ is written in first house). we will have to forget all the numbers and names of planets in above example chart for a while. This It has been depicted in gray background in above example chart. and Jupiter and Ketu are in eleventh house. lord of second house is Jupiter. Thus. we will count up to 5. So when we have to find out ascendant. Similarly. Aquarius is in ascendant or first house. topmost rectangle is considered to be “ascendant” or the “first house”. which shows that eleventh sign i.Houses (Sanskrit: ) To understand what is house. In same manner.e. the 12th sign or Pisces is situated in second house. Saturn. The numbers written in horoscope denote zodiac signs. In these four rectangles. „3‟ is written in the box where Venus and Rahu are placed. In Sanskrit. Similarly. we can say that Rahu and Venus are posited in fifth house. e. Therefore. In similar fashion. lord of third house is called third-lord and so on. so we can say that these planets are in 3rd sign i. Above birth chart diagram can be decamped in 12 boxes. So in example chart we can say that Saturn is the first house lord. the next position arrived thus is known as second house. Similarly. . Position of ascendant is always fixed in the birth chart.

And how is this business or trade going to be? – It is going to be in accordance with the natures of Sun and Aries. laudable actions or work. eyes. planets also have "significations". head. body. The numbers written are not important for determining the position of planets in houses. In such situation. organs. In other words. strength and mental balance etc. which tell us that tenth house signifies business and trade. entertainment and gambling etc. determine the predictions.
