Though Lagna Chart remains the most important chart for us but Vedic Astrology also provide the luxury of different Divisional Charts or Varga Charts. Actually all the divisional charts are made up from Lagna Chart and if we consider Nakshatra, Pada and Degree while reading Lagna Chart then there is no need to look into divisional charts, but in some matters like Career and Position of Atma Karaka & Amatya Karaka, Divisional Charts help a great deal. Divisional Charts also show a higher concious level of person in later stage of life. Another thing is that Lagna Chart and Divisional Charts will never show an opposite picture of life altogether. Divisional Charts are only going to confirm the promise shown by Lagna Chart.
So, now with this prelude, let's see what is Vargottama Planet?
Vargottama Planet literally means a planet which is in same position in most of the main 4 charts (Lagna Chart, Navamsha Chart, Dashamsha Chart & Saptamsha Chart). So, a planet which is in same sign in Lagna Chart and all the 3 main Varga (Divisional) Charts as stated above is called Vargottama Planet.
So for example - if Jupiter is exalted in Cancer in Lagna Chart but it is in any other sign than Cancer in Navamsha Chart, Dashamsha Chart or Saptamsha Chart, then it won't be considered as Vargottama Planet. Some Astrologers don't include Saptamsha for this consideration.
Again, if Moon is exalted in Taurus in Lagna Chart and then it is also exalted in all the three divisional charts as stated above then it will be considered as Vargottama Planet.
So for considering a planet as Vargottama Planet, it should be in same sign in all the 4 charts as stated above. If it is not in same sign in even one of the above charts, it can't be considered as Vargottama Planet.
What if a person has a planet as Vargottama Planet as stated above? Then this planet will give 100% good and positive results in its Mahadasha.
Hope this helps. Venus through Houses from tomorrow.
