The First House of the Horoscope is Known as the Ascendant. All the Houses are Anchored on the Earth.
Ascendant is the Mathematical Point in the local Space of the Earth. Ascendant is the intersection point of “Prime Meridian”, Ecliptic and Equator. This Happens on the East Direction of the Earth..So We Always Say Ascendant is the Rising Sign on the Eastern Horizon.
Ayan Means Movement and Amsha means Portion. It is the Basic difference in the Western Astrology vs Vedic Astrology. Rashis are Decided with two Different methods. One on the basis of the Movement of SUN (Tropical) or on the basis of the Fixed star Sidus( Sidereal). Intersection of the Celestial equator and the Ecliptic path when intersects creates two Points Spring Equinox (March 21) and Fall Equinox. The Rashi on These particular Point are always Changing..Rashis Keep on Preceding..
So There is a Precession of the Equinox and the Degree of precession is the Ayanamsha.
Bhava is the word for the Houses. Bhava is sky. Sky is 360 Degrees and We have 12 Bhavas i.e. Houses of 30 Degrees Each. Houses are the Imaginary Compartments in the sky . Houses/Bhava is Measured by Horizon and Meridians. Planets Move through this Space and we Say The planet is in So and So Bhava And Rashi..
Combustion Means Asta/Set Planets. When a Planet is in Close conjunction with SUN in degrees The Planet gets affected by the SUN..
Check the degrees of planets from the SUN to see if it is Combust
Moon-12 Mars 17 Mer 14 Jup 11 Ven 10
Inner Planet and Outer planets Combust differently. Venus and Mercury can be Combust and Retrograde at the Same Time.
Dasha Literally MeansTime Period. We All are going through Dasha every sgnle day of our LifeWhen We Say Dasha We usually refer to the Vimshottari Mahadasha. Vimshottari Mahadasha is the Nakshatra based Mahadasha..This is one of the most commonly used mahadasha. There are more than 50 other dashas which Astrology Scholars use. We are not aware of their application in predictive Astrology.
In this Type of Dasha The Lord of the Nakshatra is the first Dasha and the Dasha Sequence is followed which is already defined.
