We will now review the components of astrology using Interactive Click-Learning Tools :
1) The 12 Signs Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn Aquarius and Pisces and their properties have to be studied for the quality of effects.
2) Houses numbering 1 to 12 refer to Self, Earnings, Communication, Home, Pleasures, Health, Wife, Death, Religion, Status, Gains and Loss are the event houses In life.
3) Planets referenced as Ketu, Venus, Sun, Moon, Mars, Rahu, Jupiter, Saturn and Mercury. Rahu and Ketu are not planets but are imaginary points of intersection of orbits of Moon and Sun. Rahu is the Moons North Node and Ketu is Moons South Node The Sun represents the atmaa or the Soul and Moon represents the mind & body. Planets are the triggers for events and have specific qualities associated with them apart from the ownership of the Signs. Rahu and Ketu do not own any sign directly.
4) Nakshatras or Stars numbering 27 owned by the 9 planets are arranged in 3 sets of Stars. Each set is owned by planets from Ketu to Mercury. These 3 sets occupy a total of 12 signs hence each set occupies 4 signs.
5) Planets in Sign, House and Stars modify or control events related to each house.
6) Planets influence each other by aspects or drishti and thereby are said to modify the events due to houses.
7) Cusps are the starting points of each house with reference to actual degrees assigned by computation based on the Sign that is rising on the Eastern Horizon represented by E in bold. The first cusp is always called as the Ascendant or the Lagna, the other 11 cusp are computed based on the placidus system of houses.
In a Natural Chart or Nisarga Kundali we will imagine that Aries sign is on the Eastern Horizon at 0D-0M-0S ( Degree is D, Minute is M and Seconds is S, will be referred to as D-M-S ) and the house system is based on Equal Houses for the ease of explanation only.
This assumption helps because each sign and house are then mapped equally. Each house then takes on the properties assigned to the corresponding Signs. Aries Sign relates to House-01 and Pisces relates to House-12.
Suppose that Sun as the Sign-Lord of Leo and as Lord of House-5 is placed in Aries Sign and thereby in House-01. The results inferred would be of a general nature and mixed, based on the properties of Aries Sign and house-01 coupled with the properties of Sun as such and as lord of the Sign Leo and again as lord of House 05.
The other issue to understand is the relative placement of Mars the owner of Sign Aries and as lord of House-01. All these variations and flavours will have to be understood and applied. We have yet not considered the precise D-M-S of Sun in House-01 and hence precision is still eluding us.
The precision part is achieved by introducing the Nakshatra or stars allocated to each Sign based on D-M-S of Sun in house-01. This is elaborated in subsequent sections.

Order of stars is as shown in the column of Lords and the no. of years in the Yrs. column. We observe that the 3 stars of Ketu are allocated to Signs/Houses 1 5 & 9. Sun, Mars & Jupiter are the only lords whose stars are shared in 2 houses whereas the stars of other lords are not shared amongst signs/houses.
The other observation being that only Sun & Jupiter have stars in their own sign/house whereas all other lords are having its stars under distributed owners.

Properties of Signs / Houses

We have seen earlier that the Nakshatra's or Stars are distributed in a 1-5-9 order so also the distribution of Signs with its properties of Fire, Earth, Air & Water follows the 1-5-9 order.
In the initial stages of analysis if one simply remembers the order of 1-5-9, 2-6-10, 3-7-11 and 4-8-12 while looking at a chart then the placement of Planets in the chart can show which of the houses are active in a chart.
The properties of the Sign on the House, the attributes of the planet owning the sign on the house shall shape the outcome of that house.
If this house is vacant and the owner of the sign on the house is placed elsewhere then the outcome of this house stands modified as this owner is influenced by the new environment.
The outcome of this house shall be modified by other planets Drishti on the house.
The Longitudinal aspects by other planets on the owner of the sign on the house again modifies the outcome of the house under consideration.
Finally the results of the house are modified by the planet's occupying the house. This planet shall bring in the results of his owned house to shape the outcome of the house under review.

Observations about allocation of Stars :
House-01, House-05 and House-09 is Fire
House-02, House-06 and House-10 is Earth
House-03, House-07 and House-11 is Air
House-04, House-08 and House-12 is Water
1-5-9, 2-6-10, 3-7-11 and 4-8-12 are a series having the same set of Stars. These houses are also called the Trine houses holding the basic elements Fire, Earth, Air and Water.
The allocation of stars in signs are made such that only Sun and Jupiter have 1/4 of their stars in the Signs owned by them whereas all other planets have none in their owned Signs.
01-Aries ruled by Mars is House-01 and the Stars being Ketu, Venus and Sun-1/4
The first house is a Fire house which deals with Personal and Self related concerns and appearance are holding the Stars of Ketu, Venus and Sun.
The general outlook is structured by Ket, Venus and Sun in a joint manner. Venus is the lord of houses02 and 07, Sun being the lord of House-05 and Ketu shall represent the houses owned by Sign Lord occupied by it in the Chart.
Venus by itself relates to beauty and appearance and being the lord of house-02 relates to money matters and the family in general. Venus as the lord of house-07 represents the spouse or wife.
The 13D-20M sector of Venus takes care of the basic needs of life, Sun-05 as the lord of house-05 represents that facet of human existence relating to pleasures and or children. This part is just a minor part of house-01.
Ketu is that variable which relates to your past life in some form or other and connects with the present life. Ketu is a malefic or loss causing by nature. By its sheer presence in favourable House or Sign or Star can disable the loss causing nature to a greater extent but shall always leave you with a feeling of dissatisfaction in one way or another at mental level.
If the first house or Sign is Aries then the relative placement of the 3 lords of the stars from this house shall define the success or failure of the individual at the primary level.
The properties or attributes of the first house stand changed or modified when a planet occupies the house. The nature and properties of the planet and the houses owned by it are important in changing the flavour of the results expected from house-01.
Imagine that the fist house is glass container with 3 independent sections filled with clear water representing a clean first house. A transiting planet with a healthy color will impart a similar glow to that section as seen from the top. If seen from the side then even the other sectors shall radiate the visiting planets color. The perspective in this case counts as it gives an impression limited to the viewers imagination and understanding of the planets and its attributes.
If more than one planet occupies the first house then the radiated color will be a mixture of personalities. Here the Container and the content both are variables and can influence each other.
Trine houses 1-5-9 be read in a similar manner but by changing the lords of the signs.
02-Taurus ruled by Venus is House-02, Stars being Sun-3/4, Moon, Mars-1/2
Sun as lord of house-05 having 3/4 stars rules pleasure, children and the speculative aspects of earning money for the family.
Moon as lord of house-04 having its star in house-02 is indicative of earning through produce of earth and or property.
Mars-1/2 star in house-02 whereas the owned house is house-01 being in the 12 to house-02 indicates that Self has to expend for the family for earning.
Similarly Moon as lord of house-04 having its star in house-02 is in 11th position showing gains for house-04. Mars as the lord of house-08 holds a star in House-02.
Trine houses 2-6-10 be read in a similar manner but by changing the lords of the signs.
03-Gemini ruled by Mercury is House-03, Stars being Mars-1/2, Rahu, Jupiter-3/4
House-03 relates to Communication, relatives and Courage. Mars-1/2 part imparts courage as it owns House-01
Rahu ia again a malefic like Ketu but more potent than Ketu and has a bearing to ones past life and its current position in the chart by the Sign, House and Star it occupies can improve or cause failure. Rahu represents deception or implies a threat perception in all matters pertaining to house-03.
Jupiter-3/4 star owning house-09 and house-12 has to balance the courage part of Mars star by religious and judicial counter balance by way of which all actions or communication should be firm and legally correct else Jupiter as lord of house-12 will play its role of causing a loss by legal or religious means.
Trine houses 3-7-11 be read in a similar manner but by changing the lords of the signs.
04-Cancer ruled by Moon is House-04, Stars being Jupiter-1/4, Saturn, Mercury
Personal home and private life sukhasthan and Matrusthan
Jupiter being Lord of house-09 and house-12 implies that quest for happiness leads to losses and reduction in the fortune factor as its owned house-9 is in 6 & 8 to house-4 whereas house-12 being a trine house which holds a star of jupiter itself is supportive to growth only when the objective is related to the produce from the earth in order to satisfy the basic needs.
Saturn owns house 10 & 11 and its star in this house shall indicate that the house of gains being in 6 & 8 to this house one needs to struggle and then gain else the house-10 which is exactly opposite that of house-4 will also tend to suffer. Lack of status in the absence of efforts and therby happiness denied or delayed.
Mercury owning houses 3 & 6 being associated with communication, flexibility and intelligence facilitates the use of assistance and help from around you and intelligent use with labour to assist in success by efforts.
The composition of the 4th house which stands for happiness has all the required components in the form of Jupiter, Saturn and Mercury which represent, Correctness or fairness, Labour and intelligence if these are used in the correct proportion then happiness is possible and if any one component is more or less then it is destroyed. Similarly house-8 and house-12 being in trine to house-4 will give the same results if the 3 components are unbalanced.
Trine houses 4-8-12 be read in a similar manner but by changing the lords of the signs.
