Vedic astrology employs up to harmonic sixteen charts (including
the basic birth chart). These are based upon subdivisions of the birth chart and allow us to give a
more fine-tuned meaning to the affairs of life.
Aspects, signs and houses can also come from these
charts. Western astrology is just beginning to employ such subtle charts. Most important is the ninth
harmonic (navamsha) as this shows the inner meaning of the life and the
nature of the soul.
