When a horoscope is made, Lagna is formed at a particular time and this lagna changes after every two hours, similarly considering the lagna or D-1 chart, Navamsha chart or D-9 is formed. This chart is made on the basis of degrees. This method is based on a calculation, but don’t get confused into calculations as today there are so many soft wares that easily give D-9 chart. Basically, Navamsha chart is really important to check along with the Lagna chart as this will tell about the inner strength of all planets, Like if a planet is debilitated or weak in D-1 but strong in D-9 chart then the result will be a good one. On the other hand, if a planet is very strong in D-1 but weak in D-9 then it will give problems in its Dasha period. So its really important to check all the yogas present in D-1, they should be making the same powerful yoga in D-9 also.
Lagna is also called Ascendant which is the rising sign of the eastern horizon of the sky. This is the first house of our horoscope and it is calculated on the basis of the time of birth. Lagna changes every two hours. It is very important to know the exact time in hours and minutes to get the correct Lagna or Ascendant. On the basis of correct lagna, other divisional charts will be formed for further analysis.
