Forming Aspects In Eastern Charts
Aspects in Eastern charts are different than the aspects generally used in Western astrology. For one thing in Vedic astrology both signs and planets make aspects. Planetary aspects are called graha drishti and sign aspects are called rasi drishti.
In the Vedic Astrology, it is believed that the events in our lives are governed by the nine celestial bodies, which are also called as Navagrahas. The placement and strength of these planets in a natal chart affects us in different ways, either for good or for bad.
Let’s deal first with planetary aspects or Graha drishti. Graha means ‘the power to grab’ hence, the planets have the power to grab us and influence our lives. Throughout this article the western names of the planets will be used, however the Sanskrit transliteration for each planet will be in brackets.
Although it is not initially necessary for a student to learn the Sanskrit names of the planets or anything else, doing so is wise.

Planetary Aspects (Graha drishti)
Planetary aspects (graha drishti) show the existence of a desire. The rules around these aspects are: every planet aspects the house it is in and the house directly opposite it. Three planets have special aspects and these planets are Mars (Kuja), Jupiter (Guru), Saturn (Sani), North Node (Rahu) and South Node (Ketu). As the special aspects are described remember that the house the planet is sitting in is always counted as the 1st house.
Mars (Kuja) has the general aspects plus it aspects the 4th house from it and the 8th house from it. So it can be said that Mars (Kuja) aspects 4 places: the house it is in, the 4th from it, the 7th and 8th from it also.
Jupiter (Guru) has the general aspects plus it aspects the 5th and 9th houses from it. Therefore Jupiter (Guru) too aspects 4 places, the house it is in, the 5th from it, the 7th and 9th from it also.
Saturn (Sani) has the general aspects plus it aspects the 3rd and 10th from it as well.
North Node (Rahu) makes the same aspects as Saturn (Sani) and the South Node (Ketu) makes the same aspects as Mars (Kuja).
