First, a little theory. Jyotish is a Vedic astrology that has a long history. It involves 9 planets or Grahas (Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, Saturn, Rahu and Ketu). All these planets are located unalike on the natal chart of each person and affect different aspects of life, personality, actions, inclinations.
By studying the Jyotish, you get a chance not only to know yourself and your destiny better: past, present and future, but also to work through karma so that luck and success come in life.
Note! Vedic astrology considers influence of only 9 planets, while Western astrology also uses Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. This is the main difference between Vedic and Western astrology.

Here is a Vedic natal chart ready, it is fast and easy to do. Now let us tell you how to do the analysis yourself.
After you have learned how to build a natal chart, it is important to calculate your ascendant sign. It will differ from your usual zodiac sign and will most accurately tell you about your personality.
So, the Vedic natal chart has been drawn up, and you see a large outlined rectangle with 12 houses. The most important and significant is the 1st house, Lagna, it describes your personality, character, health.
All the horoscope houses and their meanings
In addition to the numbers in the cells of the houses, you will see the designations of the planets that are there. The location of the planets in the houses is different for each person! In one house there may be one or several planets, or there may not be them at all. This is completely normal and does not indicate your limitations or failure!
Before you learn how to read a natal chart yourself, it’s important to decipher the concept of houses.
This is what each house of the horoscope is responsible for:
|House 1||personality, body, health, character|
|House 2||material well-being|
|House 3||efforts house. Brothers and sisters|
|House 4||mother’s house, emotions, happiness in life|
|House 5||your children, intellect, education and creativity|
|House 6||the house of diseases, enemies and other obstacles in your life|
|House 7||matrimony and spouse|
|House 8||longevity and intuition|
|House 11||responsible for fulfilling desires|
|House 12||house of outcomes and losses|
As you see, all the main aspects of your life are represented in the natal chart. And you can find out the details for each house. For example, in the first house you can see what diseases there is a predisposition, in the second – how rich you will be, in the 5th – how many children you will have, and how they will treat you.
The best houses are considered to be 1, 5, 9 (houses of tricons), it is very good to have planets here. 6, 8, 12 houses are the unfavorable houses of dusthana, where influence of any planet is damaged.
Lagnesha is the host planet of the most important first house of the horoscope. Often a lot depends on the position of the Lagnesha, because he may be in a completely different house. Interpretations on the natal chart can be very different if we do not take into account the position of Lagnesha. For example, if in the first house you have no planets, then it is important to calculate Lagnesha and determine its position.
We will need our Jyotish map again. So, we look at the number in the corner of the first house. This is a zodiac sign, where 1 – Aries, 2-Taurus, 3 – Gemini, 4 – Cancer, 5 – Leo, 6 – Virgo, 7 – Libra, 8 – Scorpio, 9 – Sagittarius, 10 – Capricorn, 11 – Aquarius, 12 – Fish.
In our example, this is the number 4, that is, Cancer.
Now look at the table below to determine Lagnesha.
Let’s take an example.
Here we see that the planet ruling by the sign of Cancer (4) is Moon (see the table above). This will be our Lagnesha. It is in the 5th house – the house of children and intellectual abilities.
The best position for Lagnesha is considered the 9th house. It develops the best qualities in the person.
Next, we look at what Venus symbolizes in order to understand what character traits will prevail in a person. It is also important to watch how strong and weak planets affect your life.
Reading articles on decoding a natal chart, you will surely come across the following important terms:
The planet is in exaltation – it is in its best position and manifests its good qualities easily and freely.
Moolathrikona – “royal degree”, also a good position of the planets, but slightly weaker than exaltation.
A planet in its own sign – a good position of the planet, but worse than a Moolathrikona, the planet shows both good and unfavorable influences.
The planet is in debilitation (debilitation), falling – the planet feels worst of all, it is devoid of strength, carries negative manifestations.
The natal chart of Jyotish will definitely indicate which planet is exalted and which one is debilitated.
If at your birth the planet moved retrograde (backward), then the map will have an R icon next to this planet. Retrograde motion changes the qualities of the planets and brings its own characteristics to your horoscope!
There are several ways to find out compatibility on a Jyotish natal chart, and for higher accuracy it is better to use them all together.
The first way is to look at what sign the Moon is in in the natal chart of each partner and, based on this, see how they fit together.
The second way – you will need a Jyotish natal chart again, compatibility should be checked by the ascending sign of partners.
And the third option is to draw up a natal chart online for each of the partners and superimpose them on top of each other in order to compare the indicators: the position of Mars and Venus, the presence of Kuja-Dosha (Mars defect), what period is each partner now, etc.
