Can you please explain what the Navamsa is? I heard it signifies karma. Also, can you explain alittle bit about the 108 harmonic chart (I never heard of it before)?
The 108 harmonic chart IS the navamsha. EVERYthing in the chart signifies karma, for nothing happens in the world that is not karma. Nava-amsha literally means “nine-parts” – each of the 12 zodiac signs is divided into 9 parts. The result is 108 divisions in the entire zodiac (12×9).
Planetary conditions and positions in the navamsha greatly influence the results they bestow in the horoscope. The main birth chart is the main indication, but the navamsha is the runner up in affecting the destiny that the planets indicate for an individual. A simplified way to express one of the navamsha’s practical uses in natal astrology is that the birth chart gives you the overall picture of a person’s destiny – and the navamsa refines the focus on that picture.
