How to read a Horoscope Part 2 is in continuation to my earlier post How to Read a Horoscope – Part 1. In Part 1, we followed the below steps in reading the Horoscope.

  1. Find out the Ascendant / Lagna in the Horoscope (Ascendant / Lagna is denoted by As or Lag. in the Chart)  Lagna / Ascendant is the First House in the Rasi Chart.
  2. Find out the Moon’s position in the Rasi house
  3. Find out the Planets placed in each rasi and in each house 

Before moving to 2nd part, let us have a glance on the Rasi chart with respect to the Nakshatras (Stars).

The below Rasi Chart shows the Rasi and Nakshatras (stars) and its padas in detail. The Rasis and Nakshatras are fixed.

Each Rasi contains 3 Nakshatras
Each Nakshatra (star) has 4 padas i.e. 27 nakshatras x 4 padas = 108 padas
Each Rasi contains 9 padas i.e. 12 rasis x 9 padas = 108 padas)

In Part 2, we will further go deeply into reading the chart along with Navamsa.

The below steps are followed in continuation to the above steps (part 1 steps).

4. Placement of Planets in which Nakshatra (star) and in which pada

Let us study the same Rasi Chart (as explained in Part 1) of the person born on 12th Nov, 2014
