Dwadashamsa Chart [Astro*Index]

(Hindu Astrology).

A secondary chart obtained by multiplying each planet's longitude in the original chart by 12 and reducing the result through by multiples of 360°.

For example, Mars at 5° Leo (125°): 125 x 12 = 1500°; 1500 ö 360 = 4 with a remainder of 60°00'; thus Mars in the secondary chart is placed at 0° Taurus.
