Ever wondered what the numbers represent in the zodiac placements of your birth chart? Well, these are called as degrees and indicate the exact position of the planets when you were born. Degrees indicates how far the planet is in a particular zodiac sign. If your chart says that the Sun is at 27 degrees, then we can say that in a day or two the Sun would move to the next zodiac house. Degrees also indicate the aspect relationship between planets and houses.
Each zodiac cycle starts at 0 degrees and ends at 29 degrees which is also known as the Anaretic degree which marks endings of the areas being ruled by the house or the planet under question. Degrees greatly help in interpreting natal charts.
