Shodasa Vargas [Astro*Index]

Hindu term for the division of the chart in a repeating manner identical to that of harmonics. Traditional Hindu astrologers would divide the chart by the integers 2 through 16 or 22 sequentially. Thus, in a given chart, any two bodies separated by 360°/n, or a multiple thereof, become 'conjunct'. Each one of these divisors is held to apply to some area in the life of the native: Fortune, children, health, etc.
