Vedic astrology cusps

There has to be a compromise. So for this, purpose only different kinds of BHAVA charts make their entry in the story as a correction to Birth chart. In the bhava chart, the houses may have a span of more or less than 30 degrees as per the varied length signs. Planets are placed in the houses according to the span of the Bhava or houses. The junction points between the bhavas are called the Bhava Sandhis, and the mid point of the house is called the Bhava Madhya. It is said that, When a Planet is placed close to the Bhava Madhya; it will have a pronounced effect on the Bhava, and if a planet is close to the Sandhis of the Bhava has little effect on the Bhava.

The 10th house degree Bhava Madhya of the 10th house is the mid heaven point. The 7th house degree Bhava Madhya of the 7th house is taken as the point opposite of the Ascendant degree, and the 4th house degree is taken as the point opposite of the 10th house degree.

Definition of Every Zodiac Cusp Sign & Dates |

Now there are 4 cardinal points. The Bhava Sandhis are placed halfway between each pair of adjacent houses. Divisions of bhava are done as per the length of signs. Remember each bhava or house have the starting degree as per the starting degree of the sign which is falling in that house. So we have 12 such starting point w. Here the beginning of each house Pravarti is said to be 15 degrees before the Bhava Madhya which is taken as ascendant degree , and the end of the house Poorti is 15 degrees past the Bhava Madhya.

In this system, every house is the same size, but the Bhava Madhya is determined by the Ascendant degree.

If the Ascendant degree would be exactly 15 degrees, all bhavas would align with the signs, in all other cases the bhavas are shifted forward or backward relative to the signs. In this system, the House boundaries are calculated by dividing the sky in 30 degree portions, and projecting them onto the zodiac Actual conversion of 3 dimensions into 2 Dimension. Nether any mid points are chosen like in both the above cases.

Cusps and Signs

Bhava houses lengths are not equal and depend on the elongation of signs, i. As I have explained in the beginning.

Hence most accurate one as it very well takes into account the expansion or the compression of all the rashis on the horizon depending on the latitudes , let me take an example to make you understand the working of this chart. Remember I am NOT going into sub lordships etc, which are generally used in KP method, I am just telling you, how to use Cusp chart as a corrected chart for Birth chart.

So basically I am using Cusp chart to implement all the Parashar concepts. Because the solar disc has a diameter of approximately half a degree, it is possible for the Sun to straddle the cusp as it moves across the sky. When this occurs at the moment of birth such a person is said to be "born on the cusp" and some believe that their life is influenced by the characteristics of both signs.

The Scorpio-Sagittarius Cusp

For example, if an individual was born when the Sun by convention the point at the centre of the Solar disc was located at 29 degrees, 50 minutes Gemini , then one might say that he was born on the cusp of Gemini and Cancer. Much of the Solar disc was actually in Cancer even though the centre was in Gemini. Although the term "cusp" is universally used for the boundaries of signs, not all astrologers agree that an object can ever be included in more than one sign.

Many consider relevant only the location of the Sun's centre, which must be entirely in one sign, and would describe the natal Sun in the example as simply being in Gemini. If late degrees of Gemini have a Cancer-like character, they would describe that as simply the nature of that part of Gemini rather than some influence spilling over from the next sign.

On the other hand, astrologers who consider objects "on the cusp" to be meaningfully different from objects entirely in one sign may apply such a description even when no part of the object crosses the boundary. That point of view may consider the Sun to be "on the cusp" even when its centre is as much as two degrees away from the sign boundary.

"Cusp signs" are not real!

They may also call other objects much less than half a degree in diameter "on the cusp" despite no part of the object being in the adjacent sign. Their claim is that the influence of the cusp gets weaker but does not suddenly disappear as the object gets further from the cusp. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
