ASTROLOGY - ZODIAC



 
                          


In astrology, the zodiac denotes those signs that divide the ecliptic into twelve equal zones of celestial longitude. Each zone is of 30 degree's and called as a Rashi. Every Rashi has a name). Here are the names of the 12 Rashis (Zodiac signs) in their natural order and their rulers:

1. Aries or Mesha is ruled by Mars. It extends from 00:00 degrees to 30:00' in the zodiac.


2. Taurus or Vrishabha is ruled by Venus. It extends from 30:00 degrees to 60:00'


3. Gemini or Mithuna is ruled by Mercury. It extends from 60:00 degrees to 90:00'


4. Cancer or Karka is ruled by the Moon. It extends from 90:00 degrees to 120:00'


5. Leo or Simha is ruled by the Sun. It extends from 120:00 degrees to 150:00'


6. Virgo or Kanya is ruled by Mercury. It extends from 150:00 degrees to 180:00'


7. Libra or Tula is ruled by Venus. It extends from 180:00 degrees to 210:00'


8. Scorpio or Vrischika is ruled by Mars. It extends from 210:00 degrees to 240:00'


9. Sagittarius or Dhanu is ruled by Jupiter. It extends from 240:00 degrees to 270:00'


10. Capricorn or Makara is ruled by Saturn. It extends from 270:00 degrees to 300:00'


11. Aquarius or Kumbha is ruled by Saturn. It extends from 300:00 degrees to 330:00'


12. Pisces or Meena is ruled by Jupiter. It extends from 330:00 degrees to 360:00'

So it is clear that the sun and the moon own one house each and all the other 5 planets own 2 houses each. Rahu and Ketu do not own any houses. The rasis are further divided into several categories.
