the Indian astrology, a horoscope is prepared at the time of the
child's birth. Basically, there are 16 types of charts and these are
known as Shodashvarg Kundalis. However, there are a few astrologers
who prepare six types of charts known as Shadvarg Kundalis.
Following are the names of 16 types of charts:
Janmalagna (Kshetra) (2) Hora
(3) Dreshkan (4) Saptamansha (5) Navmansha
(6) Dwada-shansha (7)
Trishansha (8) Chaturthansha (9) Dashansha (10) Shodashansha (11)
Vinshansha (12) Chaturvishansha (13) Bhansha (14) Khavedansha (15)
Akshavedansha (16) Shashtyansha
Generally, people are
familiar with only Janmalagna & Navmansha charts. But, an
astrologer has to study all these charts before predicting dashas,
transits & various yogas in the chart. Hora is usually studied
for the wealth of the native i.e. his/her financial condition during
the entire life span.
Hora chart is divided into 2 parts. It has only 2 Lagnas/Rashis-
Cancer & Leo.
All the first 15 degrees of male
Rashis (Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius & Aquarius) come
under Leo. The
next 15 degrees come under Cancer.
the other hand, all the first 15
degrees of female Rashis (Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn &
Pisces) come under Cancer. The next 15 degrees come under Leo.
From a Kshetra chart (with
the degrees of all the planets including Lagna), it is easy to find
out a Hora Lagna & the position of all the planets.
Now, we give points to
each planet as under:
- 5 points to exalted planet (only Jupiter
will get this if it is placed in Cancer Hora).
- 4 points to a planet,
which is the Lord of the Hora (only Moon will get it if it is placed
in Cancer Hora, or Sun will get it if it is placed in Leo Hora).
- 3 points to a planet
placed in a friend?s Hora (Rashis).
- 2 points
to a planet placed in neutral Hora.
- 1 point to a planet
placed in enemy's Hora.
- 0 points to a planet
placed in debilitated Rashis (only Mars will get it if it is placed
in Cancer Hora).
In case of Mars &
Jupiter in Cancer Hora, they will not get any point for being in
friend?s Hora. One has to double the points if planet/Lagna if it
is in the same type of Rashis (male/female) & reduce the points
to half if planet/Lagna is in the other type of Rashis (male/female).
Thus, through this study,
astrologers can derive which Hora is more powerful.
If the 2nd
House is powerful in case of a Cancer Lagna in Hora chart, the native
will accumulate or earn good wealth.
If the 12th
House is powerful in case of a Leo Lagna in Hora chart, the native
will experience financial constraints.
It may so happen
that both the Rashis / 2nd
House / 12th
House are equal in points, in this case, the native will not make a
lot of money, but will maintain what he/she inherits.
