Understanding the Key Differences between the Lagna Chart and Navamsa Chart
Lagna chart is the first house in your horoscope. It determines the characteristics of the native. Lagna is based on planetary positions when one takes birth. This chart is used to figure out about marriage, career, finance and health of the native. However, it is not easy to interpret as it covers all areas of life.
For example, it is not easy to locate particular information from the Lagna chart.
That’s why an astrologer is likely to turn to Navamsa chart. The chart focuses on the finer placement of the planet in the houses to obtain specific details.
Navamsa chart doesn’t remain the same and is likely to change every 13-14 minutes. Therefore, it shows the updated information than Lagna chart that doesn’t change even 2 hours.
Therefore, not two people of the same zodiac sign might have the same “inner” characteristics because of their constantly changing Navamsa chart.
The Lagna chart is an overall general prediction while Navamsa is used to make a particular prediction. Sometimes, these two charts are interpreted together. However, Navamsa is derived from the main birth chart. So it might not give a result that is not suggested in the main birth chart. Some astrologers only use Navamsa when the information is not clear in the birth chart.
