Using Divisional Charts

It is very important to memorize Table 8. We should choose the divisional chart to analyze, based on the matter we are interested in. If we want to know something about one’s career, for example, we should analyze one’s dasamsa chart (D-10). If we want to know something about one’s luxuries and pleasures, we should analyze one’s shodasamsa (D-16). Based on the matter of interest, we decide which area of life is relevant and analyze the corresponding divisional chart.

We should remember which planets, rasis and houses show a particular matter and find links between them in the divisional chart of interest.

Suppose we want to see when one would go abroad. It is related to residence and fortune and we should analyze one’s chaturthamsa (D-4). The 9th and 12th houses show foreign residence. Rahu signifies foreign residence. We should now look for links. If 12th lord is with Rahu in the 9th house in D-4, it can suggest that one would live abroad, probably during the periods of Rahu or 12th lord or 9th house.

Suppose we want to see when one would get a promotion at the office. Because D-10 shows one’s career and achievements, we should analyze D-10. Because GL (ghati lagna) shows power and authority, planets or rasis giving a promotion are usually connected with GL. They are in GL or aspect GL. Because AL shows status, planets associating with AL or the5th or the 10th from it are favorable. If the lord of AL is in the 10th from it and aspects GL, probably his period will give a promotion.

In this manner, we should analyze the divisional chart that signifies the sphere of life that we are interested in and analyze the houses that show the matter of interest. This is the key to correct chart analysis. We will see many examples of this in coming chapters.
