One of my reader asked me the following question after reading the post – Rahu Ketu in vedic astrology
Question: How do i know , whether Rahu in 3rd house, 6th house or in 11th house and what is the meaning of houses in the horoscope?
It is a good question indeed and i take this opportunity to explain about houses to all my readers.
Our Zodiac system is divided into 12 signs or Rasis of 30 degrees each. Each sign is called as a House or Bhava (in sanskrit). In our horoscope, there are 12 houses. Lagna (Ascendant) is the first house in our horoscope. It is also called as Thanu bhava. Each house has its own significations as follows:
