To read your own chart, you need to have knowledge on astrology. If you have some books you can start reading them. You need to know about the 9 planets which are 7 physical planets and 2 shadow planets which are the Moon nodes Rahu and Ketu. Rahu and Ketu are known as North Node and South Node in Western astrology.
Understand the 12 signs, starting from Aries to Pisces. Each sign, characteristics, nature, type of sign means positive or negative sign. If the sigh is fixed, movable or dual. If the sign is fiery, earth, airy or watery.
You need to understand the 12 house. The significance of the each and every house starting from house no 1 to house no 12. Lastly you need to understand the aspects of each planets and dasha system.
Many things like planets and signs are somewhat common to western astrology. Therefore you can even read western astrology books. If you can read books by Vedic astrologers then it is even better.
Learning to interpret charts will take lot of time. I have been in this for past 15 years and still learning 🙂
I guess you are still learning- my main question is how can you see the time period by my chart? indicate on the 2nd house as the house that I will enter next year in july while I see that it is empty with no planets in it?what technique you use- can you attach a link?
If you have any book on Vedic astrology, you can find substantial information on it.
I not sure if you get any books on Vedic astrology in the country you live. If you do you can always pick up a basic book on Vedic astrology. You will learn the basics then it would be very easy for me to guide you. You may also read some basic articles on Vedic astrology on the Internet.
Hopefully I would be putting some articles on basic of Vedic astrology on AstrologyMag.com soon.
