The first house in the birth chart is ascendant. All the rest of 11 houses are counted
anti-clock wise from Ascendant. Ascendant of a native is determined by sign rising
in the eastern horizon at the place and time of birth. The ascendant signifies the
physics, complexion, constitution, character, temperament, vitality, struggles,
initiative, courage, determination and well-being.
Each Ascendant has some unique characteristics. Moon Asto covers the essential details
for each of the twelve Ascendant signs.
Analysis of the behaviour of human and the experience of the background time and
space is called Astrology. It is a scientific analysis and application of words
of the celestial bodies. These celestial bodies are decided on the foundation of
mathematics and astronomy. Their particular position in horoscope shows particular
occurrences of an individual.
The Rising Sign or the Ascendant is a zodiacal symbol and the degree which was ascending
at the east horizon on a particular time and place of an incident. It describes
the personal atmosphere and conditioning which a native gets at the time of their
childhood. This is the why the Jyotishis trust that rising sign can indicate a natives
education. How long will the native go with her education and how learned he would
be. Astrologers think that it has a powerful attitude on a native’s bodily appearance
and his health condition.
In this way the lagna is regarded as a significant school of jyotish. Many jyotishis
think that the Lagna or Ascendant puts forth a pressure similar to or even much
stronger than the planet Sun or Surya and the planet Moon or Chandra. In the Astrology,
the rising sign in no doubt is the most significant and crucial part in the graph.
The main features of horoscope of an individual are his birth place, birthday and
the accurate birth time. The influence of those celestial bodies is not relevance.
What is relevant is that the difference in their nature decides differences when
dealing to earth, the relationship is very well-built.
Veda says that the making of earth id done with “Pancha Bhootas”, i.e. the five
essential elements are Earth, Water, Air, Fire and Space. The entire element can
be sensed, seen, tried and used except the “Akasha” (Space). What id “Akasha”? This
can be taken in all the delicate forms of power such as electrical energy, magnetism,
Gravity and much other energy which are unknown to us. The sign of zodiac and planets
signifies those elements and virtues.
The Vedic prophets made out the fact sorted out the signs and the planets according
to their native character. Aries, Sagittarius and Leo are related to the Sun and
Jupiter. They are sizzling in nature. Capricorn, Virgo, Taurus are related to Mars
and Earth. Aquarius, Gemini and Libra are open in nature as Mercury. Scorpio, Pisces
and Cancer are related to Venus and Moon. Rahu, Ketu and Saturn stand for the space.
Ketu and Rahu are considered as vague planets. The situation of Lagna in the birth
graph fixes if your aptitude and prospective are compatible for career.
