How to Read Saptamsha Chart (D7) in Vedic Astrology?

Saptamsha chart, also known as the D7 chart is very important in Vedic astrology. This chart gives a detailed view of the 5th house of the birth horoscope. The 5th house in the birth horoscope deals with children and desires. For this reason, the Saptamsha chart mainly deals with things associated with children and childbirth. 

Saptamsha chart is not only associated with children but is also associated with our desires and happiness. The Saptamsha chart after the Navamsha or the D9 chart is the most important chart to predict the gains and happiness from marriage. It is important to analyze both the husband’s and the wife’s Saptamsha chart to make an accurate prediction based on it. 

SIGNIFICANCE OF THE 5th HOUSE

To understand the Saptamsha chart in detail we need to understand the 5th house in detail. The Saptamsha chart after the Navamsha chart is the most important chart to predict the gains and happiness out of marriage. This is because the 5th house is 11th from the 7th house and therefore determines the gains out of marriage. The 1st house, 5th house, and 9th house are the trine houses that represent the Dharma triangle. These are the most auspicious houses in the birth chart

The 5th house is mainly the house of children. This house is also associated with education, romance, and Mantra Sidhhi. This house has a strong association with what we desire and want in our lives. Often, we also see gains and speculative gains from this house. The gains and success of a business can also be seen from this house. Therefore, the Saptamsha chart is not only associated with children but is also associated with all the significance of the 5th house.

For children-related issues one can predict things like – ‘The time of childbirth’, ‘The gender of the child’ ‘Happiness from the childbirth’ ‘Complications within childbirth’ ‘health of the children’ ‘Could there be an adoption relationship with children’, etc. To make a successful prediction from the Saptamsha chart, the birth chart also needs to be taken into consideration. It is also a good idea to check the Navamsha chart too while making a prediction. It is also important to analyze both the male and the female charts while making an accurate prediction. 

The 5th house is also connected with romance, creativity, entertainment, sports and other recreational activities. As a child being born in this world itself is a creative process laid down by the creator of our universe.

The 5th house also represents our soul and the Karmas of our previous birth. As it is said that, one gets children based on their previous life karmas. While, the 5th house also represents games, lottery and speculation.

It is through the 5th house, we can determine the possibility of having children in one’s life.

The Karaka planet for Children or the main planet who is responsible for bringing children into the life of the person is the planet Jupiter. While, Venus and Moon is also seen in the birth chart for Children as Venus represents the “Veerya” in men.

The 5th house governs our stomach or it represents our stomach, which is where a child is born in our life.
