In the signs Aries etc., the Lords of Chaturthamsa are the 1st, 4th, 7th, and 10th signs and the Deities of these are Sanaka, Sanandana, Sanatkumar, and Sanatana.

Chaturthamsa is 1/4th part of a sign.  It is 7 degrees 30’ kalas.  The 1st Chaturthamsa is ruled by the Lord of its own sign.  The 2nd one by that of the 4th, the 3rd one by that of 7th and the last one by that of the 10th.


Depending upon the personification of the planets ie. the Sun as King; the Moon as Queen; Mercury as Prince; Venus as minister; Mars as Commander in chief; Jupiter as a spiritual minister and Saturn as Servant, the estimate the extent of affluence of the assets for example if the Sun or Moon become the Lord of the 4th House or closely influence or cast their close aspect on the most effective point of the 4th house and or its Lord, the assets are rich in nature.  On the other hand, if Saturn is in such a position the assets may be meager.  The richness of the assets given by even a weak Sun or weak moon will be more than the assets given by a powerful Saturn. Next to the Sun and the Moon in affluence are Jupiter and Venus followed by Mars and Mercury and at last Saturn.  The impact of the planets reckoned in this way for all aspects of life.
