12 Rashi (Sun Signs) in Indian Astrology

According to Indian Astrology the zodiac is divided into twelve (12) equal parts, with each part featuring an extension of 30 degrees of arc. This single division of Zodiac is called a Rashi or Rasi or Raashi (Sun Signs). So there are 12 different sun signs or Rashi. The birth date of a person determines in which Raasi he/she is.

Here is Rashi Chart of the 12 sun signs in Hindi Malayalam and English.

The Indian equivalents of the twelve zodiac signs are as follows: Mesha (Aries), Vrishabha (Taurus), Mithuna (Gemini), Karka (Cancer), Simha (Leo), Kanya (Virgo), Tula (Libra), Vrushchika (Scorpio), Dhanu (Sagittarius), Makara (Capricorn), Kumbha (Aquarius) and Mina (Pisces).
