12 Houses in Horoscope (Meaning of Twelve Bhavas in Vedic Astrology)

According to Vedic Astrology, there are 12 celestial houses of 30 degrees called the 12 Rashis or constellations. When the Earth rotates on its axis, the Rashis will ascend on the sky on the eastern horizon and descend on the western horizon according to the location on the earth.

When a person is born, depending on the location and time of birth, one of the Rashis will be rising on the eastern horizon and the exact point and degree which intersects the horizon is called the Lagna and that sign is considered as the first house.

Subsequently, the next rashi to rise after that becomes the 2nd house and this continues with each rashi for all the 12 houses. Each house represents a specific area of life of the individual .
