The Divisional Charts of your horoscope reveal how each planet prismatically reflects through all the important areas of your life. The birth chart (varga #1), shows us the physical path you are walking. It shows the concrete experiences you will encounter as evolve through your life path.The birth chart (varga #1) is based on the 12 signs, each being 30 degrees, which we refer to as the Zodiac.
