Kundli Charts, their elements and their significance in your life

Kundli charts are a term I’m pretty sure almost everyone has heard at some point in their lives. We have a basic idea that it has something to do with the zodiac signs or the sun and the moon. Well, you’re right, but there is a lot more to it, and today I’m going to do deep research and let you know all the little details about the Kundli charts.


What are Kundli charts?

Kundli represents the position of the planets at the exact time of a certain event like a birth, marriage, or celebration. Kundli is most commonly called a horoscope in English. It helps one find the influence of the planets, the Sun, and the Moon on one’s life. Kundli charts are used to determine the best time to do anything, right from a festival to the celebration of a good incident, and also help to predict the (in simple terms) good luck and bad luck in a person’s life. This is by noting down the sensitive angles and positions of the celestial bodies at a given time.

Several newspapers and now online articles carry weekly or daily published horoscopes that are the interpretations of the Sun, stars, and the position of the planets during that day or week and how it would influence a certain person’s life depending upon their zodiac sign. In the Hindu religion, the Kundli charts are mainly based on the movement of stars and moon, and any ritual or event is always done after taking into consideration whether the stars are at the right place or not. Kundli charts have a great influence in Hindu marriages as well, where both the bride and groom have their Kundlis compared, and thus it is determined whether they’re fit for each other or not, and if not, in some cases, they’re not allowed to marry.

As per Hindu astrology, the Janma Kundli, i.e., the kundali birth chart, is considered the most important of all. Birth chart kundli determines the entire life of a person and affects every event in his life. If you need a kundali chart by date of birth, get in touch with our expert astrologer.

Let’s discuss some of the reasons why the Kundli charts are important in one’s life.

Benefits of the Kundli charts

Kundli charts in Hindu astrology play a significant role in a person’s life. It can be said that the Kundli chart is the basis of Hindu astrology.

Do you remember the Pandit’s role in every marriage of a Hindu family? It doesn’t matter how advanced and modern a family is, but even today, everyone goes for a proper Pandit’s advice before taking any important decision of life, let it be marriage, a traditional ritual in a house, or a Grihapravesh there are a number of events where a Hindu family always takes the Kulguru’s advice. All these important events, as per Hindu astrology, are based on the Kundli chart of a person. In fact, the movements of the Sun, Moon, and other planets have a great influence on a human being’s life, positively and negatively. Whatever happens in a person’s life are just the consequences of actions and reaction of what we call “Karma”, but there is no scale which actually defines the good or bad Karma, however; a Kundli depicts all the events which are about to take place in our lives. Whatever the case may be, one should respect our ancestor’s faith and follow the path shown by them; in the end, what matters is “happiness.” If you ask me, there are many experiences that the previous generations have come across, and found to be true as per the Kundli, that’s why if you wish to anticipate some major events of your life, like marriage, job, business, childbirth, etc. It’s always better to follow the instructions of the astrologer as per your Kundli. With the help of an astrologer, future life complications and unseen problems can either be solved or can be reduced to some extent based on our planet’s movements, and Grihadasha mentioned in the Kundli.
