Demistifying the D-Charts For You

The Divisional Charts, also known as Varga charts, are essentially mini-horoscopes depicting the bifurcations of one’s past life, are studied to analyze the finer conditions, strengths and effects of the planets.

A Horoscope reading in Vedic astrology is incomplete without the use of Divisional Charts as they help to pinpoint the issues and events in the native’s life with immense accuracy. In fact, many do a big mistake by ignoring divisional charts completely as they are complex to understand and there are no standard rules available which can help interpret divisional charts.

Below is a succinct summary of each D-Chart along with the area it influences and their applicability in the native’s chart:
