Divisional Charts

-By V. R. Soundar Rajan

 

"In the deep there is a greater deep, in the heights a greater height. Sooner shall man arrive at the border of infinity than at the fullness of his own being. For that being is infinity, is God.” Says Sri Aurobindo. Likewise in the deep of astrology, the divisional charts reveal new perspective in the prediction of events and future".

Divisional charts are sixteen in number — Rasi, Hora, Drekkana, Chaturamsa, Saptamsa, Navamsa, Dasamsa, Dwadasamsa, Shodasamsa, Vimsamsa, Chaturvimsamsa, Saptavimsamsa, Trimsamsa, Kavedamsa, Akshavedmsa and Sashtiamsa.

Each divisional chart identifies a specific nature of the chart as given below

Acquisition of wealth, property and finance are studied through the Hora chart. When male planets occupy the Sun's Hora wealth is acquired with hard work and indicates high position. When female planets occupy the Moon’s Hora, it is beneficial. Female planets in the Sun’ Hora and male planets in the Moon’s Hora may not help. Planets should correspond to the 2nd house, 2nd lord from Ascendant and Moonsign from the Rasi chart.
