Steps of Making Horoscope
CONVERSION OF THE INDIAN STANDARD TIME INTO LOCAL MEAN TIME
The Earth moves in an elliptical orbit round the Sun and revolves once on its axis in 24 hours. It takes 4 minutes to revolve one degree from west to east direction and thereby every solar body appears to move from east to west. Hence in places in the same latitude about one degree east of any place, the Sunrise will be seen 4 minutes earlier than places in the west. Indian Standard Time is always 5 hrs. 30 mts. ahead of Greenwich Mean Time because it is fixed for the longitude 82 deg. 30 mts. E. For the calculation of Local Mean Time, it is necessary to note the Geographical Coordinates i.e. the Latitude & Longitude.
