Purpose of the khavedamsa Chart
The matrilineal Karma of a native can be analyzed in this chart. This is the karmic bond between the native towards their Mother or her ancestors. Both fortunes and misfortunes that result from the maternal chords are foreseen in this chart.
This chart represents the Superconscious mind of a native. It is a fourth layer/part of the mind where various thought patterns from past life incarnations and evolutionary data is stored.
The actual auspiciousness of the ascendant, other planets, or their houses from the natal chart can be well studied in this chart.
For example, in the natal chart, Ascendant is at 1º23’ in Aries, Sun is at 15 º22’ in Virgo.
According to the table and rules, Ascendant is in the second Khavedamsa, moving to the second house from Aries, Taurus sign.
Sun is at Twenty-First Khavedamsa of Virgo, so the sun will go Twenty-first from Libra, Gemini.
