Astrology is a science by which we can know about the various aspects of life like health, relationship, career, children, etc. Lagna tells about an individual’s self and personality likewise Ghatika Lagna tells about a specific aspect of life. Let’s know about the concept of Ghatika Lagna, which reveals some specific details:

Ghatika Lagna Use & Calculation:

Ghatika Lagna tells about how much power, authority & fame one will enjoy in one’s Life.  It is a special ascendant that is calculated based on the position of the Sun at the time of birth. Ghati means 1/60 of a day which is approx 24 minutes. Ghatik Lagna moves at 30 degrees per ghati. 1 ghati  is 1/60th of the day. 1/60th = .016667 X 24 hours = 0.40 hrs = .40 X 60 minutes = 24 minutes. Therefore 24 minutes is equal to 1 ghati. So every 24 minutes , starting at Sun rise, the Lagna moves 30 degrees. 

Ghatika Lagna is a Upachaya Lagna, meaning the house it occupies, and its significance will improve with time. Many powerful and authoritative people have a special Ghatika Lagna and this is visible in their charts.
