Astrology Signs

As per definition of Astrology Ascendant is that part of Zodiac which rises in the east at the time of child birth. Your first house begins from here.

Lagna is the Term for the Ascendant at any time in Vedic Astrology. It is the Nirayana Ascendant. From the Sayana Value of the Ascendant the Ayanamsa for a year is deducted to calculate the Nirayana Ascendant.

Celestial Equator

Astrology and Astronomy define Celestial Equator as the imaginary line drawn in the Heavens above every point in the Earth’s Equator. It is the projection of the Earth’s Equator in the Celestial Sphere or Heavens.

Table Of Houses

As per definition of Astrology the Table Of Houses is the Ready Reckoner by Raphael to find the cusps of Astrology Houses 10, 11, 12, Ascendant, 2 and 3 for each latitude for each meridian degree from 0 Aries to 30 Pisces.

Cusp or Cusps

Cusps are the exact points where astrology houses begin in the zodiac. If the Ascendant is 15 deg Aries, the 1st cusp begins at 15 deg Aries. The space between 1st and the next cusp in Taurus belongs to the 1st house.
