A birth horoscope or a birth chart of a person is like a 'map of heavens' at the time of birth. Therefore, planetary positions in the zodiac
- at the time of the birth of that person will have a strong impact on life. It is also widely known as 'Natal Chart'. Other terms are 'radix' and 'nativity'. To cast a birth chart, first of all R.A.M.C. (Right Ascension of Meridian Cusp) for the moment of birth is calculated. Once this is done, one can find Ascendant at the time of birth, based on the local mean time. After this, all the Houses are calculated based on the House system preferred.
Once the birth chart is ready, planetary positions at the moment of birth are calculated and filled in the birth chart. In Vedic Astrology
- System, other divisional charts and Dasha Bhuktis are also calculated, which is widely known as planetary periods. The chart is ready and now the future can be unfolded.
Here, you might wonder what's the use of a natal chart or birth chart? Well, it describes 'you' from head to toe! The coded language of planets
- indicate what's within you and what will be projected outside. It is a yardstick to measure anything related to that person. In short, Birth Horoscope is a powerful tool to know a person in and out. If you know the person well, you would know how to deal with that person or how to handle that person. Sometimes, we tend to have expectations from a person that are beyond his capacity. This may lead to friction and frustration for both the persons involved. However, by using Birth Horoscope, if we know the brighter as well as the weaker side of the person, we can deal with that person accordingly. The idea is to create a better and healthy society, which is possible only if we know the potential of that person.
Birth Horoscope is the base of all the events likely to take place in the future. A birth chart foretells whether something is in you fate or not. Per se
, if someone is not going to achieve any master degree (falls under the 9th House of higher education in the birth chart), even the best planetary transit or Dasha Bhukti cannot help. If planetary transits are referred in absence of planetary positions at birth, prediction would go wrong. Some people who may just consider the position of Ascendant and start predicting, can go completely wrong. Birth Horoscope with planetary positions requires basic factors to gauge things and situations in store for you.
Birth Horoscope is a powerful tool that can help choose right direction in life, if you have faith in it. And if you are already on the right path, you may reach the destination easily and happily, by following your birth chart. Knowing your Birth Horoscope or birth chart is equal to knowing yourself very well!
