Casting of Divisional charts

Shastyamsha Chart-D-60

When we divide the sign into 60 parts it is known as Shastyamsha. Here each part is of 30 minutes. For this 30 minutes division in odd signs who are the lords or by which name it is called and for even signs by which name it is called is more important  here. Since it becomes an elaborate list let us see it along with table for shastyamsha.

There is one opinion that while placing the planets in Sign chart  2 Shastyamsha’s or one deg is considered for each sign. But Parshara says “ Rasheen vihaya khetasya dwidna manshaadhyamarka hrata shesham saikam cha tadraashinaathaaha shastyamshapaaha smruthaha” . That means without considering the sign deg. and min should be multiplied by 2 and divided by 12. Result should be added with one. That sign shows the Shstyamsha sign lord. E.g. in our natal chart ascendant is at 18deg.-5 min. of Cancer. If we multiply by 2 we get 36deg.10min. and divide by 12 we get 3 as result and 0 as reminder. If we add one to reminder we get 1. That means Ascendant is where it is, that is in Cancer in shastyamsha chart. Shastyamshas are counted from the sign it self. So even if we count 18deg 5 minutes shows the 37th shastyamsha . That means 3 cycle completes and in the fourth cycle it is first shastyamsha. That is the starting sign it self, which is cancer.

It confirms that Parshara is not of the opinion, that two shastyamshas should be allotted to each sign. Here it is confusing to asses whether it is  benefic or malefic by names given. Because they are Samskrit names which are not in use now. While translating many authors have taken varying meanings. But basically they are the same. To avoid the confusion I have mentioned “B” for benefic and “M” for malefic after the names for the convenience of the readers.

Shastyamsha

Chaturthamsha Chart D-4

If we divide the sign into 4 parts it is known as Chaturthamsha. Here each part is of 7deg, 30min. It is also known as Turiyamsha. That means 4th stage in the path of attainment. That is the last stage when Soul becomes one with universal soul. So it is believed that it indicate your destiny or fortune.  Here first part starts with the sign concerned. 2nd part is indicated in the fourth sign from there. Third part is shown in the 7th house from there. Fourth part is shown in the 10th house from there. That is each part is shown in the quadrant houses from that sign respectively. The governing deity for each part is 1. Sanaka 2. Sanada 3. Kumara 4. Sanathana. The table for this chart comes like below.

The fifteen Divisional charts described above and in previous writings and the Natal chart totally make 16 charts known as Shadvargas. These charts are described by Parashara himself. Saint Jaimini added 4 more divisional charts to it. Let us consider them now.

Ekadashamsha Chart-D-11

If we divide the sign into 11 parts it is known as Ekadashamsha. Here each part is of 2° 43′ 38”  . It is also known as Rudramsha. It represents 11 Rudras. So it is used to identify the reason and nature of Death.  That is the benefic nature of these Rudras also indicate the way you can come out of diseases, that is cure. Here the placement of planets is done like this. From Aries number signs where planet is placed is counted, same number of signs are counted anticlockwise from Aries. Again From that sign 11 parts are placed respectively. For e.g. If a planet is in Taurus it is one sign a head of Aries. And If a planet is at 10 deg. in Taurus. It is in the 4th part of Rudramsha. So Counting starts from Pisces ( one sign behind Aries) and placed in 4th sign that is Gemini. Let us see how the table for placing planet comes for Ekadashamsha.

Let us see how the Ekadashamsha chart comes for our Natal chart.

Ekadashamsha

Other than 20 Divisional charts described above we use one more divisional chart known as Nadi Amsha. It is 150 Divisions in a sign. So each part is of 12 Minutes. Our saints have given many yogas with respect to this chart, and results there of. So this Nadi astrology itself has become a separate branch. These 150 parts are named separately. Here also name differs. I have followed the names as given in Devakeram.

The above table reveals that in moveable signs Aries, cancer, Libra, and Capricorn first Nadi amsha is called Vasudha, where as 150th nadi amsha of the Fixed signs, that is Taurus, Leo, Scorpio. Aquarius are again Vasudha, and 76th Nadiamsha of the Dual signs that is Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces are again Vasudha. In this system results are predicted, for nadi amsha in which one is born. So here Signs looses its importance. It is used only to know the combination of other planets, without considering the Nadi amsha. Some have given the way how Nadi amsha should be represented in chart. But it seems it is not confirmed by the verses of saints. So I feel it is better to consider only the above table know the Nadi amsha and know the results, with basic Natal chart. when we discuss about Nadi amsha in future writings let us discuss it in detail.
