Definition of Hindu Astrology This is apparently based upon a fixed zodiac, determined by taking a birth year, subtracting 498, multiplying by 50 1/3" per year, reducing the product to Arc and subtracting it from all positions computed according to a Geocentric Ephemeris. The equivalent names of the elements in Sanskrit are:

Aries - Mesham

Taurus - Vrishabham

Germimi - Mithuna

Cancer - Katakam

Leo - Simha

Virgo - Kanya

Libra - Tulam

Scorpio - Vrischika

Sagittarius - Dhanus

Capricorn - Makaram

Aquarius - Kumbra

Pisces - Mīnam

Sun - Surya

Moon - Chandra

Mercury - Budham

Venus - Shukra

Mars - Kuja

Jupiter - Cura

Saturn - Shani

North Node - Rahu

South Node - Ketu

Angular: Kendra

Succedent: Panapara

Cadent: Apokalima

Ascendant: Lagnam

Trine: Trikonam

Square: Kandra

The Houses are numbered as counted from any significator. Houses 3, 5, 9, 11 are uniformly favorable as regards that significator; 6, 8, 12 uniformly unfavorable; while 1. 2, 4, 7 and 10 are judged according to the planets occupied. It can be seen that this is largely their method of considering aspects. All planets in 10, 11, 12, 2, 3, 4 houses from a significator are benefic, including harmonious planets in the 1st. All others are evil.

Progressed positions are computed by a complex series of periods, which follow the basic series of South Node 7, Venus 20, Sun 6, Moon 10, Mars 7, North Node 18, Jupiter 16, Saturn 19, Mercury 17. The figures give the duration of the period in years. These are divided into 9 subperiods ruled in the same order, but beginning in each case with the planet's own subperiod. The sub-periods are again divided into inter-periods, ruled according to the same method and by the same series. These are applied to the Mansions of the Moon (qv.).
