Now we know about the basic contents of a horoscope. The Lagnam, Rasi and the Nakshtra. All these we derive from the time of birth or the time of occurrence of an event. A good ephemeris (Panchangam) would give you the position of planets. Or you can easily find it with easy software available free of cost online. But in case some one is interested to do the calculation manually please let me know (the process is quite interesting, but not explaining it here as easy methods are available) So with just three information i.e. time, date and place of birth you are ready to rock. Simply enter these details in the software, and you will be provided with a horoscope. Now comes the stage of understanding other factors so that we can analyze the horoscope.

In south Indian Chart, the Rasis are fixed. Starting from Mesham, we move clock wise to reach the 12th Rasi Meenam. And as per our time of birth, if we get Kannya as the Lagnam we mark Lagna {L or Asc (ascendant) } in Kanya Rasi and go on placing other planets in various Rasis (houses) as per the calculations arrived. And when we want to analyze the house we start from the Rasi in which we have marked Lagna and start counting clockwise. So the House marked Lagna is the 1st house and the hose next to it clockwise is the second and so on.

The difference in north Indian chart is the house are fixed. That means we always start with Lagna and move on clock wise. Or in other words, we put the Lagna Rasi in colomn no. 1 then the rasi comes next to it in column 2 and so on. The benefit of this system is it is always the house comes first.
