# Basic Elements Of Vedic Astrology

Basic elements of Vedic astrology

As in paratical earth is rotating around Sun. Other planet is also rotating around Sun. Moon is rotating around Earth.  We lives in earth. Suppose we assume earth is fixed then what happened all others planet and heavenly bodies are moving around earth.
Actually this relative motion is base of our astrology. Due to this relative motion and others planetary forces give impact on both Earth and any body who lives in earth.

Basic elements of Vedic astrology

1)Nine planet
Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, Saturn, Rahu and ketu.
Except Rahu and ketu all other planet is natural planet which has physical existence. Rahu and ketu has no physical existence. Both are called shadow planet.
Actually Both Rahu and ketu is mathematical point in Sky where Moon cuts Earth orbit  in two position. Rahu is North node and ketu is South node.

2)12 Sign or Rashi
Apart from there are 12sign or Rashi.
Aries (Mesh ), Taurus (Vrish), Gemini (Mithun), Cancer (Karka), Leo(Simha), Virgo(Kanya), Libra( Tula), Scorpion (Vrishchik), Sagittarius (Dhanu), Capricorn (Makar), Aquarius (Kumbh), Pisces (Meen ).
All 12 sign makes a Zodiac or Rashi chakra. As we know that Circle has 360°. So All 12Sign has 360°. So 1Sign is 30°each.
Here we have to know
1degree(1°)= 60minute(60′).
1Minute(1′)= 60second (60”).
We used this in future.

Look at this chart  and remember the portion of each sign.

3)Apart from Sign we have 27 Nakhshatra in a Zodiac means rashi chakra.
So arc of 1Nakhshatra is
360÷ 27 = 13°20

(360÷27= 13° and reminder is 9° . Now we convert 9° in minute so it is
9×60= 540′
540÷27 = 20′)

1Nakhatra is divided into 4Pad or Charan.
Now 1 Nakhshatra = 13° 20′
So we divide it in 4part so
13°20 ‘ ÷  4 = 3°20’

13°20′ ÷ 4 = 3° reminder is 1° 20′
Converting 1° in 60 minutes so
1° 20′ = 60′ + 20′ = 80′
Now divide
80′ ÷ 4 = 20′
