Divisional charts are micro horoscopes studied for a more definitive assessment of a focus area of life. This concept is unique to Vedic astrology. Divisional charts help determine the exact and precise nature of a planet and the hidden strength of your destiny. A divisional chart is like a magnifying glass that gives a microscopic analysis of a particular area in your life like career or marriage. It focuses on one key aspect and gives a multifold analysis of it.

Principle & Importance of Divisional Charts

Divisional chart is obtained by dividing the zodiac sign into multiple sections and then, assigning a sign to each of these sections like in the image below. From this sectioned macro horoscope, a new micro horoscope is generated.

Let’s take an example of D-9 chart, which is used to give a precise analysis of your marital life and spouse. D-9 chart is a 9-times zoomed-in version of your birth chart wherein each zodiac sign of 30° each is divided into 9 equal parts (of 3 ° 20′ each). So, if a planet in your birth chart is at 7° Aries, it will be placed in Gemini out of the 9 divisions. And when the slices will be picked to create a micro Navamsa chart, that planet will be placed in Gemini.


To understand how a planet functions in a horoscope, one needs to analyze its position in the sign, its constellation (Nakshatra), and then the part of the constellation – the padas.

Divisional chart reading is a multi-level analysis of planets based on these three parameters to assess the ‘true nature’ of the planets.

There are 27 Nakshatras in total and each sign has around 2.25 Nakshatras. Further, each Nakshatra is divided into 4 Padas.

It is quite incidental that one division of each sign in Navamsha (1/9 of a sign) is also ¼ of the Nakshatra, meaning the Pada. This is to say that reading of divisional charts gives a much closer and multi layered astrological analysis. This can be thus be concluded safely that even a minor detail would not go unnoticed if D 9 Chart is also analysed along with D 1 chart. No wonder that it leads to much reliable results than a simple reading of the D 1 Chart.

D-9 Chart

D-9 or Navamsa chart is one of the most commonly used divisional chart that gives a magnified yet concentrated analysis of your marital life. Sometimes, even a favorably placed 7th lord in a birth chart does not give positive results and you run into break up or separation. It is quite possible that the actual reason was hidden in the D-9 chart while the D-1 chart shows no cracks at all. This is why reading Navamsa chart is as important as your D-1 chart (birth chart) because it helps to understand the ‘actual strength’ of a planet in your horoscope along with providing special insights into your relationship sector. This is thus the most important dual-purpose divisional chart.

“Will I ever get a government job?” is a common question among the workforce today. But, can a D-1 chart answer such a specific question confidently? May be not. Even while Sun is well placed in your 10th house and you are running its dasa, you may still have to endlessly struggle to crack that government job offer. And this could be because Sun is debilitated in your D-10 chart! This is why unraveling the details hidden in your D-10 chart can help you make the best decisions in career.
