Sun Sign

The Sun sign is the Zodiac sign where the Sun is situated during your birth. The Sun sign calculation, according to the western system of astrology, is different from Vedic Astrology. For this reason, some of you may see a difference in the Sun signs per the western system and Vedic birth chart. Sun represents ego, authority, control, intelligence and wisdom. Since Sun represents your Atma or soul, the Sun sign is connected with eternal Karma. Even though the Sun sign is not displaying your visible character, it will reflect your inner thoughts.

The Moon Sign is the Zodiac sign where Moon is posited during your birth. This Sign or Rashi is also known as Janma Rashi or Birth Rashi. In Vedic astrology, this sign is also known as Chandra Lagna and is considered the second most important sign next to Lagna or Ascendant. Since Moon represents your mind, this sign says many things about your personality and character. Your thought process defines your future and destiny, so this sign plays a crucial role in your birth chart.

The Lagna or Ascendant is the rising sign during your birth. Lagna can be considered as 'YOU' in this world. Lagna is also acting as a planet effectively. The lord of this sign is known as Lagna Lord or Lagnesh or Ascendant lord. The most influential planet in your birth chart is also the ascendant lord. This planet will be a natural yoga karaka and a beneficial planet for you. Lagna shows your personality and visible character. It also denotes your vitality and general well-being. This sign is the 1st house among 12 houses in the birth chart. Houses are counted clockwise from Lagna in a South Indian Chart and anti-clockwise direction in a North Indian Chart. - Read More about Lagna and how it is calculated and the difference between Rashi and Lagna - Click Here

Planets in Vedic Astrology are known as Navagraha, or nine planets. Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus and Saturn are the Saptha Grahas or actual planets. Rahu and Ketu are Chaya grahas or Shadow planets or, in other words, mathematical points. Planets represent our lives and activities in this world, or otherwise, it defines us, the Humans. Our actions, interactions, Karma etc., are connected with these planets, their conjunctions, aspects, positions etc.

Bhava or House represents an area of life and matters related to our life here. Like 12 zodiac signs, there are 12 houses. Houses are counted from Lagna, which is the first House. So when someone says about 4th House, it means 4th House counted from Lagna. - Read more about Bhava or House - Click Here

Nakshatras, or Stars in Vedic astrology, act as a fixed reference point for tracking and calculating the movements of planets. There are 27 (28 including Abhijit Nakshatra) Nakshatras in the Zodiac, and it is equally divided and spread across the 12 Zodiac signs. Each Zodiac sign is capable of containing 2 and 1/4 of Nakshatras. Nakshatras are capable of influencing the characters of a planet which is passing by them. Nakshatra, where Moon is stationed during birth, becomes a person's Birth Star or Janma Nakshatra.

Rashi is generally referred to as a Zodiac sign in Vedic Astrology. There are 12 Rashis in the Zodiac, starting from Aries (Mesha/Medam), Taurus (Vrishab/Idavam), Gemini (Mithuna/Mithunam), Cancer (Karka/Karkidakam), Leo (Singha/Chingam), Virgo (Kanya/Kanni), Libra (Tula/Thulaam), Scorpio (Vrischika/Vrischikam), Sagittarius (Dhanu), Capricorn (Makara/Makaram), Aquarius (Kumba/Kumbam), Pisces (Meena/Meenam)

A Rashi chart or D1 chart is the primary birth chart in Vedic astrology. Rashi chart shows the planet's position and placements in a Rashi sign during your birth. Rashi chart is analysed from a reference point known as Lagna or Ascendant, which becomes the 1st house in a Rashi chart.

A Bhava Chart or chalit chart is a vital addition to Vedic astrology, which helps an astrologer refine the exact position of a planet concerning houses in the birth chart. This chart is prepared by making the Lagna the midpoint of the first house and then calculating the rest of the houses. An astrologer needs to consider any shift of houses created by a planet in a bhava chart while analysing a horoscope.

Drishti, or aspect of a planet, is used when a planet influences another planet or house by sitting 180 degrees opposite the other planet. In Vedic astrology, there are special aspects cast by some planets. For example, Jupiter is capable of aspecting while positioned at 180 deg, 120 deg and 240 deg from a planet or house. Similarly, Saturn can aspect at 180, 60 and 270 degrees, and Mars can aspect at 180, 90 and 210 degrees. All other planets can aspect at 180 degrees from another planet or house.

Shub/Paap Graha in Vedic astrology referred to the malefic and benefic nature of the planet. Sun, Saturn, Mars, Rahu and Ketu are considered natural malefic planets. Jupiter and Venus are Natural Benefics. Moon will be regarded as a natural benefic if birth thithi is between Shukla paksha shashti and Krishna paksha shashti. Mercury will be considered malefic if, in conjunction with other malefic planets.
