Bhāva ( Sanskrit: , 'state, condition') is a term in Jyotisha denoting a fixed zodiacal division of the sky from the perspective of an observer. It corresponds to the concept of " house" in Western astrology. A natal chart is called bhāvacakra ( Sanskrit: , 'wheel'.)
Bhava or Bhavayavya was a king who lived on the banks of the Indus, eulogized in RV 1.126. His son Savanya or Bhavya is the subject of 1.125, where he has a discussion with a wandering priest. The two hymns are among the very few dedicated to mortals in the Rigveda.
