**Navamsa ( Ninth Division )**

Navamsa chart is a very important sub-division of natal chart
in vedic astrology. Navamsa chart is said as fruit of natal chart. Almost every
astrologer likes to look Navamsa chart with natal Chart.

Ninth division of a rasi is known as a Navamsa.

1 Navamsa = 30

^{0}/9 = 3^{0}20’###
**Steps to calculate Navamsa.
**

We have to take degree of a planet and divide it by 3

^{0}20’, If the answer is in decimal, we have to round up the answer.
1) If the planet is in Movable sign in natal
Chart, we will start counting from the sign where planet is situated up to the
number which we have found from the division of planet degree by 3

^{0}20’, In navamsa chart we will put the planet where the counting ends.
2) If the planet is in Fixed sign in
natal Chart, we will start counting from the 9

^{th}sign where planet is situated up to the number which we have found from the division of planet degree by 3^{0}20’, In navamsa chart we will put the planet where the counting ends.
3) If the planet is in Dual sign in
natal Chart, we will start counting from the 5

^{th}sign where planet is situated up to the number which we have found from the division of planet degree by 3^{0}20’, In navamsa chart we will put the planet where the counting ends.###
**In natal Chart Ascendant ( Lagna ) is
in Mesh ( Aries ) at 3**^{0}23’

^{0}23’

So according to above mentioned rule
we have to divide ascendant degree by 3

^{0}20’
= 3

^{0}23’/3^{0}20’ = 1+ then we will round up the number that is = 2
Answer = 2

Because Mesh ( Aries ) is a movable sign we will start counting from Mesh ( Aries ) to 2

^{nd}houses, so we will find vrisha ( Taurus ) that means in navamsa Chart Ascendant will fall in Vrisha Rashi ( Taurus )###
**Let’s take Rahu which is in Kanya (
Virgo ) at 9**^{0}53’

^{0}53’

So, we divide the Rahu degree by 3

^{0}20’
= 9

^{0}53’ / 3^{0}20’ = 2 + then we will round up the number that is = 3
Virgo is a Dual Movement sign so we
will count 3

^{rd}from the 5^{th}of Virgo which is Meena ( Pisces ). Rahu will fall in Meen ( Pisces ) in Navamsa Chart.###
**Let’s take Jupiter ( Guru ) which is
in Kumbha ( Aquarius ) at 23**^{0}46’

^{0}46’

So, we divide Jupiter degree by 3

^{0}20’
= 23

^{0}46’ / 3^{0}20’ = 7+ then we will round up the number that is = 8
Kumbha is a Fixed Sign so we will
count 8

^{th}from the 9^{th}of Kumbha which is vrisha ( Taurus ). Jupiter will fall in Vrisha ( Taurus ).
