The birth chart is a blueprint of the sky at the moment of your birth. Sounds extraordinary?
Well, it rather is!
Each of the nine planets in Vedic astrology exists within a House (Bhava) in your birth chart (Kundli). Apart from providing invaluable insights about your personality, the placement of the planets illustrates how you are connected and how you coexist with the world around
you. Moreover, the 12 Houses in your Kundli are a roadmap of your past, present and future. As the planets in the sky move across these houses, all sorts of events are triggered in your life — both tangible and emotional.
Every house in the horoscope carries a unique meaning and represents a specific area of life.Indeed, the twelve houses are truly what makes astrology so spectacular. How these houses work is fairly complex, but we will make it easy for you to understand what the 6th house in
Kundli is all about.
