The study of Astrology is very ancient and dates back to several centuries. At times it is difficult to understand the concepts as said in the various classical works of Vedic Astrology. It is not the fact in the verses that is confusing but it is our own understanding of it. It takes time to decode the knowledge given by our sages.
Vargottama is a special position in the chart where the planet is situated in the same sign in both Rasi and Navamsa.
Divisions of a sign
There are tenfold divisions of the Rasi chart and are known as Dasa vargas as shown below
We have already seen what is known as Vargottama Navamsa.
As per Phala Deepika, if the Lord of Navamsa of the ascendant is strong, then the native’s life will be full of joy and happiness. If the Lord of Drekkanna ascendant is strong, then the native will live like a King. If the Lord of the ascendant itself is strong, then the native will be a King.
