Vargottama is a term used in Vedic astrology to describe a planetary position where a planet is placed in the same sign in both the birth chart (Rashi chart) and the Navamsa chart (D-9 chart). It indicates a special and harmonious alignment of the planet’s energy, amplifying its influence and significance in the individual’s life.

When a planet is vargottama, it gains strength and becomes more pronounced in its effects. It signifies that the qualities and characteristics associated with that particular planet will have a prominent influence on the individual’s personality, behavior, and life experiences.
