Horoscope or Janam Kundali, also known as Janam Patri, is a basic tool, which can be used to make astrological predictions. It can be created by evaluating one’s exact time, place and date of birth. With the help of Janam Kundali, you can predict various incidents of your life. Also, it can help in explaining various aspects of life, including both auspicious and inauspicious time frames.
To predict your future, Janam Kundali plays a vital role. It makes predictions by analysing the movement of planets in various sections at a particular time. There are 12 sections in a Janam Kundali, which are known as Houses. Moving forward, let’s understand these 12 sections or houses.
Placement of planets in the house of your horoscope is very important. With the help of these planets, you can make predictions. First of all, check that the planets are in which house, and then check the behaviour of the planet according to the house. With the proper analysing of planets in your horoscope, you can predict your future.
Other than checking the position of a planet, you also need to check if the planet is exalted, debilitated or is in its own sign. Also, yogas associated with a planet are also required to be analysed. For example, Raj Yoga, Dhan Yoya and more.
In the end, while making predictions through your horoscope, other than the 12 houses and planets, you also need to analyse various dashas and transits in your horoscope.
