Birth Chart and Sky: Planetary Motion -3

Your Birth chart is the Sky as you see from earth at time of your birth. Refer the old blog to have a basic understanding…

Old Blog: What is this House stuff ???

We have seen in the old blog planets have 2 motions:

  1. Daily / Diurnal Motion: Planets appear moving due to Earths Rotation (East to west)
  2. Proper Motion: The actual motion of all planets (West to east)

Old Blog (For Reference): How do Planets move ??? – Planetary Motion – 1

See the diagram Below:

  1. DAILY/ DIURNAL MOTION OF PLANETS: Planets APPEAR to move in Sky due to Earth’s Rotation


This is How Planets move as seen on the Birth Chart. The 1st house represents EAST and the 7th House Represents WEST. The 10th house is the Highest point in the Sky seen from Earth. Note that Sun at 12 pm noon is highest and centered in Sky when seen from earth

This how the planet Sun moves DAILY as seen from earth (EAST TO WEST – DIURNAL MOTION)

Take a look at another Diagram:


See how Sun moves from 1st house to 12th to 11th and so on till 7th house. And at 7th house (West) it sets. Similarly ALL PLANETS HAVE DIURNAL MOTION MOVE CLOCKWISE. This Motion is very fast as it is apparent motion seen from earth as Earth itself moves fast (Only 24 hours for a day)

Look how Saturn, Moon, Venus APPEAR to move from Earth (See diagram)

Note that: Direction from 1st House to 12th to 11th to 10th and so on till 7th house REPRESENTS DAY. 10th House being approx 12 pm 

The Movement to 7th to 1st house is NIGHT and 4th House BEING MIDNIGHT. All these has signification in Astrology we will see later in Coming Blogs…

Take another diagram:


Don’t confuse Here between Rashi and House – We have talked only of the houses here.

In the next Blog we shall see… 2. PROPER MOTION OF PLANETS
