RASHI :- Defined as per Vedic Astrology.
Before defining the RASHI let us know something about
We have seen previously that there are 27 nakshatras
and each one is of 13
degrees 20 minute's length by dividing the zodiac of 360 degrees by 27.
The Nakshatras are placed 3
(i.e. upper half of the sine-curve) then
(i.e. negative half of the sine-curve) Again
SAVYA-MARG and so
One Naadi is allotted to one nakshatra.
SAVYA-MARG consits of 3
Nakshatras and so 3 Naadi's [ One Naadi is allotted to one nakshatra ]viz.
growing +ve side 60 deg of sine curve) ,
peak +ve side 60 to 120 deg of sine curve),
ANTYA (LAST, +ve side
120 to 180 deg of sine curve).
of 3 Nakshatras and so 3 Naadi's [ One Naadi is allotted to one
nakshatra ] viz.
ANTYA (LAST, -ve side
180 to 240 deg of sine curve),
peak -ve side 240 to 300 deg of sine curve),
growing -ve side 300 deg to 360 [or say 0] of sine curve) .
1,2 3, 7,8 9 , 13,14,15,
19,20,21, 25,26,27 are in SAVYA- MARG
16,17,18, 22,23,24 are in APASAVYA-MARG
EACH NAKSHATRA IS DEVIDED IN 4
EQUAL PARTS, EACH ONE IS CALLED AS CHARANA.
1 CHARANA = 3 degrees and 20 minutes.[3 degrees,20
minutes * 4 = 13 degrees and 20 minutes]
So there are 3*4= 12 charans in SAVYA-MARG and
3*4=12 charans in APASAVYA-MARG.
A CHARAN IS CALLED AS RASHI
In the SAVYA-MARG THE 12 RASHIS ARE :
CHARAN 1 MESH
CHARAN 2 WRISHABH
CHARAN 3 MITHUN
CHARAN 4 KARKA
CHARAN 1 SINH
