Cracking the Navamsha -5: Mental Maths

In order to quicken the process of making the D9 chart. Follow the hints for faster calculations: (PLEASE READ OLD BLOGS – PART 1-4 – otherwise this will be bouncer)


  1. Always start working from Aries (irrespective of the house Aries is placed in) and dividing it into 9 Parts – its easier if you want to calculate in a time consuming manner.
  2. Note that MOVABLE/CHARA Signs – 1,4,7,10 i.e. Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn – will always have their 1st part as them itself.
    1. See diagram – Cancer’s 1st part is Cancer itself. Capricorn’s 1st part is Capricorn itself
  3. Then the 1st part of Next signs follows reverse order as : 1-10-7-4. 
    1. IMG_0848.JPG
    2. See 1st diagram – Tauras will have 1st part as 10, Gemini will have 1st part as 7 and Cancer as you know will have 1st part as 4 itself. (Back order 1-10-7-4)
  4. FOR FIXED SIGNS: 2,5 and 8th and 11th – Tauras, Leo and Scorpio, Aquarius – the 5th part of the sign will the sign itself. Example Tauras will have its 5th part as – Tauras itself (Verify in 1st diagram), Leo will have 5th part of Navamsha as Leo itself, Scorpio -5th part as Scorpio itself.
  5.  FOR DIURNAL SIGNS: 3,6,9,12 – Gemini, Virgo and SAGITTARIUS, Pisces – the 9th part of the sign will be itself. Example: 9th part of Gemini will be Gemini itself (Verify in 1st diagram), 9th part of Virgo is Virgo itself and Sag 9th part is Sag itself.
  6. This is the 1-5-9 Rule

From Above rules – Lets say you have CAPRICORN (10).

what can  you mentally deduct ?

Right, 1st part will be 10 So calculate from there on…

OR For, Aquarius – Lets say Mars is in 4th pada/part. Which sign will be Mars in D9 Chart??

You cannot go on calculating from Aries it will be tedious – so apply above rules


Aquarius is FIXED Sign… So its 5th part will have Aquarius (11) itself. (1-5-9 Rule: See 4th Point) So we have Mars in 4th part – SO if 5th has 11 (Aquarius) 4th will be 10(Capricorn).

So, in D9 chart – Mars will be in Capricorn – exalted.

Lets Say if Saturn is in 8th part of Aquarius ..Then >> we know 5th part of Aquarius (11) is Aquarius itself (11) from above rules. SO continue from 5th part  -11, 6th part – 12 (Pisces), 7th Part – 1 (Aries) and the 8th part will be 2 (Tauras). So Saturn in D9 chart will be in Tauras.(birth Chart in Aquarius)

Its Simple… If you cant undrestand – Read from Part 1 or elso just forget it softwares will do it for you… But its Basic and I guess you must know it..

#8 House – Counting errors !!!


Well this blog may seem to be the stupidest for the knowers of Astrology. But for the newbies – It is something very important….


Well how do you count a particular House from a house lets say 4th house from 7th. See below


So how do you count 4th house from the 7th house ? CAN YOU ? LET’s SEE….

Did you answer ?

  1. 11th house ??? Like counting from 7th. So – next is 8th then 9th and then 10th and then 11th ??? (Like Say for example what is 4th to 16 ? So you count from next number as 17…., then 18…., then 19… and 20….Right ? Or you may simply add 16+4=20. SO THE NUMBER 4th to 16th is 20 – that’s right mathematically !)
  2. OR the 10th House ???


for Astrology, if you said 11th house you are Wrong.

When you count for charts (ITS A RULE – Don’t ask me Why?) Count from the number itself. So when you are asked to locate 4th house from 7th – You should count STARTING from 7th ITSELF, then 8th, then 9th and finally 10th (At 4th) – So, its the 10th house.

So now tell me, in this chart below:


What is the 5th house to the 3rd house ???


#2 Houses – Basics of Kundli

#3 Houses – Basics of Kundli – Example

Refer in case of confusion…

So, What is the 5th house to the 3rd house ???

If you count – then : 3rd house ITSELF is 1st, 4th house is 2nd, 5th house is 3rd, 6th house is 4th and 7th house is 5th.

So answer is 7th house is 5th to the 3rd house..

Well I think its easy ..Reread the blog…

#1. Houses: Basics of Kundli

by: Dr. Rujit Desai

Have your ever seen a horoscope ? Yes, indeed you must have even if you dont believe in astrology… you must have seen somewhere

Below is the chart you must have seen commonly:


This is a Kundli (or Horoscope) It consists of  Square with 2 diagonals and 4 other lines from midpoint of border lines. That just gets complicated. Simply look at the figure above.

Each section in the box is called as house (may be a square or triangle in the larger square).

The houses are counted as below:


Note the word rising sign that is the place where you start counting as House Number 1,2,3 and so on… Note that counting the houses is from 1 to 12 in the ANTI-CLOCKWISE direction.

Thus, a KUNDLI is basic a birth chart with 12 houses. 

There are 2 type of Kundli in India. They are:


The above diagram is that of North Indian Style. It is most frequently used and easy to understand. I prefer the North Indian Style of Kundli (as stated above).

  • Rajyogas must also frutify in Navamsha otherwise no use.
