#2 Houses – Basics of Kundli

Yesterday we had a look at the North Indian Kundli. Let’s have a look at the South Indian Kundli:


Notice the entire chart has a different look.

How to read ?

Ok, First look at Number 1 and see how numbers progress from 1 to 12. This is how the counting is done – CLOCKWISE. Note that in North Indian Chart the counting is done COUNTERCLOCKWISE.

So this numbers represents SIGN NUMBERS and NOT HOUSE NUMBER. See, Gemini is the chart ? The number next to it is the SIGN NUMBER (There are 12 Zodiac Signs – numbered from 1 to 12, Gemini is 3rd).

Note that HOUSE NUMBERING IS DIFFERENT FROM SIGN NUMBERING. We will cover that in the next blog with example.

So, this is the DEFAULT placement of Signs for this chart.

Note that:

  1. In NORTH INDIAN CHART: The HOUSE NUMBERS are fixed and default counting from 1 to 12 houses in counterclockwise direction.


Notice in the above North Indian chart, THE HOUSE NUMBERING IS FIXED. No matter where (for example) Gemini – Sign no. 3 is placed. So Gemini may be place in 7th house. i.e 3rd Sign Gemini is in 7th house.



Note that Aries – the 1st sign always start From 2nd Box of 1st row of squares. HERE SIGN PLACEMENT ALWAYS REMAINS FIXED FOR ALL CHARTS

Can you see the A line marked on Virgo sign ??

Well, for this chart, that box forms the 1st House. So, the 3rd house for this chart will contain which sign ?

Answer: Scorpio (Counting 3rd from Virgo) – The 1st house is itself counted as One.

Notice that House counting may start anywhere BUT The sign placement in boxes always remains the same in a SOUTH INDIAN CHART.

We will consider one example in the coming blog.

Don’t worry if you find it complicating…It will clear out. Just re-read the blog once again.

Have a Good Day.
