Birth Chart Directions – Do you know that the birth chart has relation to the geographical directions? Knowledge of this aspect will help you in relating your birth chart to the Vaastu principles.
There are twelve houses in a birth chart starting with the 1st house also called the ascendant. As the ascendant represents the zodiac sign which is rising in the eastern horizon at the time of birth therefore this house represents the east direction. And by convention the house exactly opposite viz. the 7th house represents west and the 4th and 10th houses represent north and south respectively.
The rest of the houses correspond to the directions as listed in the table below:
|House Of Birth Chart||The direction it represents|
|1st or Ascendant||East|
In a birth chart based on the sign falling in the ascendant the rest of the signs in sequence fall in the remaining houses. So each house is represented by the lord of the sign falling in it. But in vaastu the planetary lords for each direction are fixed as shown in the table below:
|Direction of a Plot of Land||Lord Planet|
|Southwest||Rahu (North node of Moon)|
• Planets Mars and Saturn associated with the 6th house.
The above information can help you relate your birth chart with the Vaastu of your place of residence.
Just as an example suppose in your birth chart the 2nd house is afflicted then you must be careful in keeping the Northeast direction of your premises defect free.
