The Turyāṁśa(D4) is one-fourth a rāśi measuring 7°30′ arc. There are 48 Turyāṁśa in the zodiac as 4×12=48. Just as the horā D2 chart maps to the second house of the rāśi chart in the physical plane of consciousness, the Turyāṁśa being a D4 chart, maps to the fourth house.

    Translation: The turyāṁśa (one-fourth divisions) of a sign are ruled by the lords of the kendra from it, in order, reckoned for Aries and other (signs).
    The word caturthāṁśa is normally used by vedic astrologers to refer to the standard D4 chart where immovable properties and such wealth is seen.
  • Caturthāṁśa: D4 Chart - Caturthāṁśa calculation
    The one-fourth (quarter) division of a rāśi measures 7°30’ and there are four such caturthāṁśa [called ‘turyāṁśa’ by Parāśara] in every sign.

    The first caturthāṁśa (0-7°30’) of every sign maps to itself
    second caturthāṁśa (7°30’-15°) of every sign maps to the sign in the fourth house
    third caturthāṁśa (15°-22°30’) of every sign maps to the sign in the seventh house
    fourth caturthāṁśa (22°30’-30°) of every sign maps to the sign in the tenth house

    In this manner the four kendra from every sign rule the four caturthāṁśa, a necessary condition set by Parāśara.

    D4 Chart: Caturthāṁśa
    When we divide the rāśi into four parts we have four divisions measuring 7°30’ each. These map into the kendra from every rāśi and are called caturthāṁśa when reckoned regular and direct from the sign. For example, the first caturthāṁśa for Pisces is Pisces, second is Gemini, third is Virgo and the fourth is Sagittarius.
