# Cracking the Navamsha -4: An example

Have a look at degrees – without which pada/ part calculation becomes difficult.

Degrees

Notice Ascendant is 9 degree 3 min. So which part it is. ? Calculate 3D 20M + 3D 20M +3D 20M = 10 degree. So 9 degree and 3 Min falls in 3rd part.Ascendant is in the 3rd part/pada of Cancer.

SO ALWAYS Start from ARIES (Here placed in 10th House) – Divide Aries in 9 parts and start giving sub signs to each part starting from aries as:

10th House – Aries – 9 Parts: 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9

11th House – Tauras -9 Parts – Continue 10-11-12-1-2-3-4-5-6

12th House – Gemini – 9 parts – Continue from previous sequence 7-8-9-10-11-12-1-2-3

1st House – Cancer – 9 parts – Continue from previous sequence 4-5-6-7-8-9-10-11-12

Notice that the Ascendant is in 3rd part of Cancer. Which sign does 3rd part of Cancer contain ?? Its – 6th Virgo so the 1st house of Navamsha will have 6- VIRGO and second house will be Libra (7) and so on as normal numbering…

Can you tell me about Mars Sign in D9 from Birth Chart (Don’t look at above diagram)

Mars is at 18D 35M (D-Degree, M-Minutes) in Tauras(2). It is at 6th part/pada of Tauras.

From above sequence the 6th part of Tauras has Gemini(3). So D9 chart Gemini has Mars in it.

Its simple…if you understand…
