Constellation (Nakshatra)

The zodiac of 360° is divided into three equal parts. First 120° is Aries o• to
Cancer 30°, second !20° is Leo o• to Scorpio 30°, Third 120° is Sagittarius oo
to Pisces 30•.
The zodiac of 360• is divided into three equal parts. Each part contains 120°. lt
consists of nine equal sections. Each section contains 13•.20' or 800'. lt begins
from o• Aries. Each section is known as Nakshatra or Constellation or Star.
There are 27 Nakshatras or Constellations or Stars in the whole Zodiac.

According to Vimshottari Dasa System, each Nakshatra or Constellation or


Star is ruled in turn by the nine planets in the order of Ketu, Venus, Sun, Moon,
Mars, Rahu, Jupiter, Saturn and Mercury. This order is fixed and not
changeable.

Each planet rules three Nakshatras or Constellations or Stars and the ruling
planet is called the Nakshatra Lord or Constellation Lord or Star Lord. ln short
we may use the term 'Star' instead of 'Star lord' etc throughout this book. Each
planet rules three Nakshatras or Constellations or Stars. Below are the tables of
planets which rule each 13• 20' of each

Erecting the Horary Map

(a) When a person consults you, ask him to give a number between I and 249.
The number given is taken as the Asc. Then from the number find out the sign,
star and sub. Note the commencing position in degree, minute and second of
this number. You have to erect the map and calculate the other 11 cusps for the
latitude of the place from where you judge the query. Work out the positions of
the planets for the time at which you start erecting the map for judgment. The
method of finding out the positions of the other 11 cusps of the houses is
explained in the example given here under.

(b) Even when question is asked from any corner of world, place of horary
must be the place where astrologer is erecting the chart. Take the longitude and
latitude of place of horary at the start of calculation.

Note down planetary position and put it in calculated horary chart, of which
day and time astrologer start work on horary calculations.

Example

Suppose you want to find out the pos1t10n of the cusps of the houses for the
number 45 out of 249 for the year 1980. Place of judgement is Ahmedbad 23°
N 02', no E 37'.

Generally planet give result of its occupation in bhava, owner of bhava, and
aspect on bhava, Karaka of related bhava are considered as signification of
planet.
In the horoscope the sign is on the cusp of each house. A planet always
occupies the sign and its strength is determined according as it occupies its
own sign, exalted sign or debilitated sign. So the occupant in a sign is stronger
than the owner of the sign.

The sign is the !/12th part of the Zodiac, while the Constellation or Star is the l/
27'h part of the Zodiac. So the Constellation or Star is stronger than the sign.
Hence the planet in the star is stronger than its Star lord (which may be either
the occupant or the owner of the sign).

The occupant (planet) in a sign mostly gives the results of the house occupied
by it. So the planet in the star better gives the results of the house occupied by
its star lord.
Keeping these principles in mind, the order of strength of the significators of
each house should be determined as under:

Selection of significator:

1) A planet in the star of the occupant of a house is stronger than the occupant.
So it should be given first preference as a significator of that house, because it
is strongest to give the results of the house occupied by its Star lord. The
occupant remains as a weak significator of that house.

2) If there is no planet in the occupant's Star, the occupant becomes the strong
significator of that house and it is strong to give the results of that house. So the
second preference should be given to the occupant of that house.

3) If the house is vacant, the planet in the star of the owner of a house is
stronger than the owner. So it becomes a strong significator of that house and it
is strong to give the results of that house. Hence the third preference should be
given to the planet in the owner's star and the owner remains a weak

significator of that house.

4) If the house is vacant and if there is no planet in the owner's star, the owner
itself becomes the strong significator of that house and it is strong to give the
results of that house. So the 4th preference should be given to the owner of that
house.

5) (a) A planet in conj. or associatiOn with, or aspected by a significator gives


the results of the house or houses denoted by that significator. So the last
preference should be given to the planet in conj. or aspect with that significator.
(b) A planet's star lord aspecting the house may be considered as the
significator of that house. For example planet A is in the star of B, and B
aspects 11, thus planet A is significator of 11.
