Astrology, the word itself, is enough to spark exciting debates. Astrology has various elements and components that help astrologers derive a prediction and make the rough sailing smooth.

Horoscope charts are one of the most common tools most astrologers use to determine the past, present, and future of a person. The horoscope comprises the position of various planets and stars. The location of these stars and planets during the time of birth helps accurate predictions.

Among others, the two crucial components of the horoscope are Lagna and Rashi. Though the two are novel concepts altogether, they are like two sides of the same coin. Both are essential for proper predictions or a solution. So explaining what they are, and why they are crucial, is the whole point of the article.

What is Lagna(Ascendant)?

Philosophically, Lagna is the very first moment when a soul makes its contact on earth. Lagna is the exact position of the stars or nakshatra corresponding to the sun at the time of your birth. It is the most crucial thing as it depicts the personality traits of a person. They prepare the horoscope charts based predominantly on Lagna. 

Based on the 24 hours rotation of the earth, the lagna changes every two-and-a-half hours once. It is to say the ascendant or the rising sun sign is present at a particular birth nakshatra only for two-and-a-half hours. After which the sun moves on to a different phase of the star or a new nakshatra altogether. 

The sun stays on the horoscope for the entire month. That is why many people have common sun signs but different Lagna or ascendant.

What is Rashi?

If lagna represents sun sign, then Rashi represents the moon sign. It holds a mirror to a person’s mind in contrast to Lagna. The position of the moon at the time of birth determines a person’s rashi. Hence, we can easily say that rashi identifies the personality traits of a person. 

The 12 rashi’s that helps astrologers unravel working of the mind of a person in order are - Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces.

Difference Between Lagna and Rashi

While the differences are quite apparent in the previous section, we add on to them and explain it further. The main difference between the two is Lagna defines the physical characteristics, and Rashi represents the mind. 

Lagna plays an essential role in determining all the significant events in a person’s life. Lagna is the determining factor that helps set time for starting an auspicious occasion like marriage or a housewarming ceremony. Choosing an auspicious lagna for new beginnings will bring in luck and prosperity. Lagna is vital in deciding the ruler for the horoscope chart. 

Rashi depicts the harmony of the mind and soul. It defines our reactions to situations and how we handle different circumstances in life. The moon sign also governs your emotions and moods. Being the first to be positioned, rashi regulates the positioning of the planets and the stars in the kundali. 

Impact of Lagna & Rashi in one’s Kundali

Both the sun and the moon sign go hand in hand. Both of them have a high impact on various phases of life. When both are complementary, then one can expect a quiet life with lesser obstacles and hardships in life.

Both of them are essential in defining the person and his traits. People in certain sections of India arranged marriages based on horoscope matchings. The tradition is not unheard of in the sub-continent. Not just on a person's kundali, people also look into the kundali of the bride and groom to find out compatibility before deciding.

Since the sun and moon make a significant impact on the lives, the janma kundali will have two charts - lagna chart and rasi chart. At the time of birth, the positions of the planets will be relative to the ascendant sun and the moon sign. 

To check the effect of the planets, we should compare it with lagna first, and then with rashi. The horoscope chart comprises the planet’s position in the nine houses in the horoscope chart. The nature of each house and its impact on at least 2 points is a must for proper predictions. It shows the strength of a planet and its effect on lives.

Sample Predictions

  • A person with Scorpio in lagna will look for excitement in life.
  • If Mars impacts the ascendant Aries, it represents a person who has a bold nature and looks for a challenging life. 
  • Rashi has more impact on a person with a Cancer sign. Hence, it portrays that they are emotional and sensitive people.
  • A person with rashi as Capricorn will be affiliated to have a disciplined life.

Since the movement of planets and stars vary with each passing second and minute, the predictions and the horoscope charts of twins will be different.

      Lagna can be decided by noticing the birth time and date of the baby. It is important that time is noted exactly because difference in 1hour may also change lagna of the child.
