This post is in continuation to my previous post wherein we got to learn about the basics of the Birth chart along with the significance of the Signs.
In this post, we will get to know about the Planets and their relationships with each sign. This is a part of Birth chart only but I preferred to make a separate post so that there should not occur any sort of confusion amongst you all.
So whenever you see any birth chart, you notice some alphabets along with signs such as:
Now, this is how any random birth chart looks like. You never see a birth chart only with signs. There is always the representation of planetary placements along with degrees and minutes each planet holds residing in any house under specific sign as shown above.
Below are the abbreviations of planets, generally used in the Vedic astrology:
- Asc: Ascendant
- Su: Sun
- Mo: Moon
- Ma: Mars
- Me: Mercury
- Ju: Jupiter
- Ve: Venus
- Sa: Saturn
- Ra: Rahu
- Ke: Ketu
#Note: Hence, in the above figure, in the 1st house- Asc i.e. Ascendant is 2 degrees and 41 minutes in sign #11 i.e. AQUARIUS.
Likewise in the 2nd house - Ve i.e. Venus is 17 degrees and 54 minutes in sign #12 i.e. PISCES.
And this is how the chart interpretation goes......
Now let us talk about the lordship or rulership these planets have in relation to the Signs(Rashi).
- Sun- Leo
- Moon- Cancer
- Mars- Aries and Scorpio
- Mercury- Gemini and Virgo
- Jupiter- Sagittarius and Pisces
- Venus- Taurus and Libra
- Saturn- Capricorn and Aquarius
- Rahu- Aquarius (along with Saturn)
- Ketu- Scorpio (along with Mars)
So in the above-mentioned chart, the only planet which is in its own sign is Mo i.e. the Moon which is under sign #4 i.e. Cancer sign, in the 6th house along with Sa i.e. Saturn.
Hope you guys can now judge by looking at any chart that which planet is SWAGRIHI i.e. in its own sign.
