Astronomically, the Zodiac has been divided into 12 portions taking the Sun as the centre. In reality, these 12 portions of the zodiac are the 12 Signs. These signs are houses of the horoscope (nativity). Astrology calls them the houses of the nativity or the signs of the zodiac. If we look at the chart, we find that the upper portion consists of three compartments. Wherein, the middle compartment is rectangular in shape, which is called the first house or the Lagna (Ascendant) irrespective of the sign of Lagna. Successive houses appear in the ascending order in antilock direction.
The order of 12 signs of the zodiac and their number are as under:
The rising sign in the East is the Lagna or the Janma Lagna of the child. This is also the first house of the horoscope. Number of the sign is invariably placed in the first house; and the successive houses are filled with the numbers of the signs in cyclic order. Here, we present the chart with Aries as the Lagna for the sake of convenience that the order of the houses and the signs is well illustrated. However, the number in a house, in case of other sign Lagna, will depict the sign and not the house.
In case, the Lagna falls in Taurus, number 2 will be written in the first house and the subsequent houses will have the sign numbers in their cyclic order. We should construct the chart for any Lagna in a similar way.
