This astrological year starts in the late March at the time when the Sun enters Aries . Thereafter the signs change at monthly intervals. The Zodiac is divided into twelve Signs or Rashi’s . Theoretically each sign is of 30. Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac ; followed by Taurus and the others. The Zodiac chart is the map of the heavens at the time of the event is under reference. Hence the birth chart is the map of the heavens at the time of the birth at the given place of birth of the child and is known as the “Birth Chart”. The rising sign at the time of the birth is known as the Ascendant and signifies the East st direction and is also the 1 . house of the horoscope. The sign opposite the th ascendant is known as the descendent, is the West direction and is the 7 . House of the horoscope. The sign at the top and at right angles to the ascendant is the known th as the Mid heaven ,is the South direction and the 10 . House . The sign opposite th the Mid heaven is known as the Nadir , is the North direction and the 4 . House. Signs : They indicate the trend and the quality of the human mind. They confer power to resist against odd environments or circumstances. Houses: They denote the environment, circumstances and conditions of human life. Each house has its own specialties. Each sign is a content and each house is a transparent receptable . This content when put into the house gives a special quality to it. The beginning of the house is known as the Cusp of the house . The house extends from the cusp of the house to the cusp of the next house. However the Indian tradition to call cusp as “ Bhava Madhya “ is now accepted by Western Astrologers also, that being the most sensitive point of the House. Planets: The human mind is influenced by planets according to their inherent tendencies and the way their influence works in every walk in life. Desirable influence is felt under good aspects while undesirable influence is experienced under bad aspects or afflications – a planet in bad aspect is termwed as a planet in afflication or afflicated or afflicting. st Notes on The Elements of Astrology by A.S.Writer for the 1 . year Jyotirvid course THE SIGNS OF THE ZODIAC, THE ELEMENTS, TRIPLICITIES, QUADRUPLICITIES, 13 THE PLANETS THEIR ASPECTS & THE DECANATES Triplicities There are three signs falling in each of the 4 elements hence known as Triplicities The 4 Elements (tatvas) are Fire, Earth, Air, & Water Fire Signs (Agni): Restless, Energetic, Optimistic, & Assertive.

Keetapeds (Reptiles) - Scorpio, Pisces & Cancer. Planets and Aspects Aspects indicate opportunities and situations, either easy or difficult, which arise in life. Good aspects bring favourable opportunities or situations; whilst bad / hard aspects create difficult situations. But they do not obstruct progress or success in life. Geometrical relationships between planets are called aspects. These relationships affect and modify the energies of the planets concerned. Some aspects have been shown to generate problematic events in our lives, while others seem to smooth the path with relation to the areas governed by the planets, signs and houses concerned. Should a planet have difficult aspects, or be in an unsympathetic position in the zodiac, it is said to be afflicted. Its negative characteristics may be exhibited on occasions through unfortunate personality traits, or through difficult circumstances arising in your life. Should it have favourable aspects, however, its effects will be more beneficial. Difficult aspects, especially to the "malefic" (dangerous) planets, are often quite problematic and can even be catastrophic in their effects. They are, naturally enough, more conducive to personal development, for they tend to generate complex results requiring considerable interpretation and self-analysis, while favourable aspects more often produce simple effects which are easy to understand. In any case, the chart must be viewed as a whole, for positive and negative characteristics may cancel each other out, or appear in mitigated forms, according to circumstances depending upon other factors. st Notes on The Elements of Astrology by A.S.Writer for the 1 . year Jyotirvid course THE SIGNS OF THE ZODIAC, THE ELEMENTS, TRIPLICITIES, QUADRUPLICITIES, 19 THE PLANETS THEIR ASPECTS & THE DECANATES Aspects usually described as difficult are :- opposition (180° apart on the chart circle) square (90°) semi-square (45°) sesqui-quadrate (135°) quincunx or inconjunct (150°) and contra-parallel (opposition of declension, or latitude). Favourable aspects are :- trine (120°) sextile (60°) semi-sextile (30°) and parallel (conjunction in latitude). Conjunction (0°) may be favourable, difficult, or both, depending to a great degree upon the nature of the planets involved. Other aspects can be important in certain circumstances, as can the midpoints between planets, along with a number of other sensitive positions on the charts, but they are beyond the scope of the present discussion. st Notes on The Elements of Astrology by A.S.Writer for the 1 . year Jyotirvid course THE SIGNS OF THE ZODIAC, THE ELEMENTS, TRIPLICITIES, QUADRUPLICITIES, 20 THE PLANETS THEIR ASPECTS & THE DECANATES HOW THE ASPECTS EXPRESS o Prominence Conjuction  Sign Express Effect through 0 Semi-sextile 30 1 growth Slightly Good 0 Sextile 60 2 opportunity Good 0 Square 90 3 obstacle Bad/hard 0 Trine 120 4 luck Very Good 0 Inconjunct 150 5 expansion Slightly Bad 0 Semi-square 45 1.5 friction Slightly Bad 0 Opposition 180 6 separation Very Bad 0 Sesquiquadrate 135 4.5 agitation Slightly Bad 0 Conjuction / parallel 0 intensity Mixed in declination same When the aspect is formed between Sun or Moon and another planet 10 orb may be allowed and between Sun and Moon – an orb of 12 When swifter of the two planets is going towards an aspect – it is an applying aspect and it is separating after completion. A separating aspect is stronger than an applying aspect. You can resist the evils of a separating aspect but it is not possible to resist against the evils of an applying bad aspect. When two planets occupy the same degree of declination, whether N or S , they are in parallel position. Like the conjunction , its nature is variable and an Orb of only 1 is allowed. st Notes on The Elements of Astrology by A.S.Writer for the 1 . year Jyotirvid course
