Sapta-ndi-chakra is very useful in prediction of weather, esp of rainfall. There are two variants based on two ancient sources of Sapta-ndi-chakram :
Narapati-jaya-chary and Krishi-Parshara, and all later texts are based on them.
The original source of Sapta-ndi-chakra was a Tantric text 'Ymaleeya-Svarodaya'.
Here, both variants of Sapta-ndi-chakra currently used by many traditional panchangas are being presented :

Chand-ndi represents fierce winds.


Vyu-ndi is for somewhat more than normal winds.
Dahn-ndi represents more temperature.
Saumy-ndi represents normal conditions.
Neer-ndi represents normal rains.
Jala-ndi represents more rains.
Amrit-ndi represents maximum rains.
Start from Krittik (= number 3, numbering begins from Ashvini) in Chand-ndi and assign nakshatras to ndis in the serpentine manner as shown in the tables above.
Traditional texts present Sapta-ndi-chakra in a confusing manner , which makes it difficult to decide which of the two chakras is correct. Here, bioth have been
presented in a well-ordered manner, which makes it easy to see that the left table is correct, because in it planets are placed according to their geocentric (or
Merucentric) distances : Saturn-Jupiter-Mars-Sun-Venus-Mercury-Moon. In the right table, Jupiter and Sun are accorded lordship of wrong ndis.
Narapatijayachary can be procured from Chowkhamb Sanskrit Sansthn (Vrnasi). It gives some ancient rules for using this chakra.
