Want to discover your destiny Click Here The Rashi Chart:The Rashi Chart (Also called - Rashi Chakra) is the chart showing mere placement of the planets in the sky in reference to Rashis (Zodiac Signs). The natal Rashi Chart shows which planet was in which Rashi (Sign) on the time of the birth of a native. In Rashi Chart a Rashi is marked as natal ascendant (Janma Lagan) and that sign is counted as the first house. Thus the 12 different signs become the 12 different houses, where each house controls a set of matters. Depending upon the nature, rulership, strength, relationships among the planets placed in different Rashis, the good and bad of the native is derived by the astrologer.
The Divisional ChartsOn the other hand, a Divisional Chart (Vargas Chakra) is not the DIRECT chart of planets in the sky. The Rashi Chart is a sort of Direct Snapshot of the sky at a moment. That is why it is a 'True chart' which exists in physical level of material creation. On the other hand a Divisional Chart is not a direct chart of
placement - a Divisional Chart does not exist in the true astronomy, but it as a 'Virtual Chart' derived from the Rashi Chart, and there is the glory of Vedic Astrology
How to make Divisional ChartsWhen we will make a Divisional chart, Each Rashi will be divided into equal parts, the number of the parts depending up on which Divisional Chart we are going to create. Suppose, we are going to make the Navamsa Chart, which is a 9th divisional or harmonic chart, also called D-9. Now, Each Rashi in the Rashi Chart will be divided in to 9 equal parts, and each of the 9 parts will represent a separate Rashi in the Navamsa (D-9) Chart, that way the 9th Divisional Chart will be made. As an example, let us suppose that Moon is in Aries in one's Rashi Chart. We want to make the Saptamsa (D-7) Divisional Chart for the native. Now we will divide Aries in to 7 equal parts, and as per the rules of Vedic Astrology, each seventh part will denote some separate 'Rashi'(s) in the D-7 chart. Now if the part of Aries where Moon is denotes Gemini in D-7 chart, the Moon will be in Gemini in D-7 Chart. All other planets will change signs the same way and make a complete new chart for the native. That is why, the Moon is not in Gemini in the sky in real, and it is in Aries. However, it is in the "D-7 Gemini part" in Aries that is why in D-7 Chart Moon will go to Gemini. A Divisional Chart is completely different from the Rashi Chart; however, one planet may occupy same sign in Rashi Chart and in other Divisional Charts, which is only a coincident.
Uses of Divisional ChartsThe most respectable authority of Vedic Astrology, Maharishi Parasara, speaks about 16 Divisional Charts. They are The Rashi itself (D-1), Hora (D-2), Drekkana (D-3), Chathurthamsa (D-4), Saptamsa (D-7), Navamsa (D-9) and so on. Maharishi Parasara goes up to Shastiamsa (D-60) which is made dividing a Rashi in to 60 parts and the level of accuracy Vedic Astrology allows us to go to, can be imagined easily by this. Even Ashtottaramsa (D-108) is used bycopyright 2009 SVWAS All Rights Reserved
some most experienced astrologers to look into most subtle and accurate events possible! Maharishi Parasara also speaks about the use of these Divisional Charts. He has said to see the body of the native from Rashi Chart (D-1) itself, whereas he has suggested to look at other Divisional Charts for other affairs, such as wealth from D-2, siblings from D-3, profession from D-10 etc. Some of these indications are similar to house significations like 3rd from ascendant deals with co-borns, and the D-chart dealing with siblings is D-3. We see profession from 10th house and the D-chart dealing with profession is D-10. However it is not always true, like D-12 deals with mother and father though we look at 4th house for mother. Sometimes it is a bit similar like the 7th house is a secondary house for progeny and for the same matter we look at D-7 chart. However the main house dealing with progeny is of course the 5th house.
As per Maharishi Parasara's advice, we can understand easily which house is to be looked at for which matter. Suppose, someone got an infection in the body what would say this? Since it is about the body and self, the Rashi Chart (D-1) itself has to be seen. Infection is seen from the 6th house, so we should look at the 6th house and lord in the Rashi Chart. Now different houses denote different body parts, they will have to be looked at for more details. Like influence of 6th lord (infection) on 2nd house (face) in Rashi Chart (Chart of body) might cause infection in face. Suppose, we want to know about native's education. Should we look at the Rashi Chart again? Logically, No. Because it has to be seen from Chaturvimsamsa (D-24) since this D-chart deals with education. Now if we look closer -* 4th house in D-24: Formal education itself. Reason - 4th houses is of formal education.* 5th house in D-24: Original knowledge the person owns. Reason - 5th houses is of knowledge. An 'ordinary student' might have a better knowledge than a 'better student' than him in the same class. I have seen in my personal experiences that many students have good knowledge about the subject but don't get the best marks or stands first always. He is weak in 4th house (result of education, mostly) but not in 5th house (knowledge).* 6th housecopyright 2009 SVWAS All Rights Reserved
in D-24: Competitors in studies. Reason - 6th houses is rivals. For a first boy in the school, this will signify the 2nd boy, 3rd boy and so on, whoever among the classmates compete with him in studies. It will not signify an ordinary student of his class since the first boy does not have to ever compete with any ordinary student for his place. Note - A student with strong 6th house in D-24 might stand 'Always first' in his class, defeating his enemies (6th) in education (D-24) if it also supported by houses 4th, 11th etc.7th house in D-24: Stands for the joint activities in the student life / acquiring of knowledge. Reason - 7th house rules joint activities. It might be group studies, making hand-notes in a group of fellow students etc. In my early student life I used to make notes and reference materials and exchange them with other students against notes written by them. Which else among the houses would signify this since 7th house is the house of trading? * 8th house in D-24: Hidden or spiritual knowledge the person owns. Reason - 8th houses is the house of hidden things and spirituality. It might also cause a sudden 'change' in student life.* 9th house in D-24: The knowledge related to religion and the role of the teacher in relation of acquiring knowledge in the person's life. Reason - 9th house signifies religion, teachers etc.* 11th house in D-24: Awards and prizes in student life. Reason - 11th houses is achievement. Not all good students get awards, scholarships and medals in a standard way.* 11th house in D-24 will also stand for the friends in his class or educational life. A first boy might like an ordinary student in his class to be a good friend of him. He might not have a good friendship with other good students.* 12th house in D-24: Knowledge of foreign matters such as foreign languages, foreign cultures etc. Reason - 12th house rules the foreign. So, logically we see that for the matters which are not directly related to body and health, we should not be looking at the Rashi Chart for the answer. Parasara hinted this clearly and this is the real way of Jyotish.
Higher divisional chartsAlthough astrologers stop short at Shastiamsa when using divisional charts, there is an entire range of higher harmonics, which remain untapped. This is

Each cycle of twelve divisions therefore represent a harmonic depicting the various levels of consciousness, both gross and subtle, which exists in the life of a person. The first cycle of divisional charts from D-1 to D-12 represent the physical plane. They cover the various aspects of the physical realities of a person such as the body itself (D-1, rashi), wealth (D-2, Hora), co-borns or siblings (D-3, Drekkana), properties and fortune (D-4, Chaturthamsa), progeny (D-7, Saptamsa), spouse (D-9, Navamsa), profession, career and work (D-10, Dasamsa) and parents (D-
