Birth Chart Directions

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.

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:
