When a planet is in the same sign in the birth chart and navamsa, then that planet is called Vargottama planet. It is coined from 2 words, Varga and Uttama. This is the best planet in the entire divisional chart.

The idea is that the Vargottama planet will be very strong and it will help you with its qualities. Or as a person, you will be displaying the qualities of your Vargottama planet. Your evident qualities will be the same qualities of your Vargottama planets. Different planet indicates different qualities. So, the nature of the Vargottama planet will change according to the planets.
