“Why are we here? To become ourselves in You.”
The lagna, or ascendant, is the single most important indicator in Vedic astrology of the charts potential.
The Lagna, which is the first house, represents the self, body and personality. We find important clues about a person by examining both the sign that the first house is placed in and the planet that rules the sign.
The planet that rules the first house, often referred to as the Lagna Lord , is of paramount importance. A strong Lagna Lord is essential in fulfilling the potential in a chart. A strong Lagna and Lagna Lord can also help us deal with potential difficulties existing in a chart.
The Sun (Surya) represents both the ego and the Soul in an individual's chart.
