#18 – Mapping the Heavens

SouthChart NorthChart

 

After creating the north or south indian chart and locating the ascendent, (the constellation that was on the eastern horizon), we have set the stage.  We associate the ascendent with a specific constellation or sign, and thus can know the rest of the houses and their associated signs.  The stage is set!

The next step is to add in the actors; the planets.  Having done this, we will be ready to begin to access the relative strength and weakness of the grahas (planets) as they are placed in the chart.
