In every region, the procedure to prepare a Kundali is different. However, there are only nine planets and twelve astrological signs. Every principles of astrology considers this basic fact. In India, different types of Kundalis are prepared. These Kundalis differ in their basic characteristics and method of preparation.

North Indian System
In North Indian System of preparing a Kundali, houses are considered to be fixed. In other words, the twelve houses don’t change their places. However, astrological signs change on the basis of rising Ascendant. When the Ascendant rises, it is believed to be present in the first house. All the other astrological signs are considered to be present in the following houses according to their order in the zodiac. Astrological signs are written from the left hand side. For instance, if Cancer sign is present in the first house, then Leo will be in the second house from the left hand side. Therefore, Virgo will be in the third house and so on.
South Indian System
In the South Indian system of preparing a Kundali, astrological signs are considered to be fixed. However, houses keep on changing. In a Kundali, Ascendant house can be present anywhere. This does not happen in the North Indian system of preparing a Kundali. The method of preparation in these two systems is also different. The house in which Ascendant sign is present is divided into parts with two diagonal lines. Ascendant is considered to be the first house. Rest of the houses are present on the right hand side. In this system, astrological signs are fixed. Therefore, the number of signs is not mentioned in the Kundali.
East Indian System
The East Indian system of preparing a Kundali can be considered to be a mix of the North Indian system and South Indian system of preparing a Kundali. However, an East Indian Kundali looks completely different from a Kundali prepared by either of the other two systems. Just like the South Indian system of preparing a Kundali, astrological signs are fixed in the East Indian system. However, they are written in order from the left hand side. This resembles the method of preparation used by the North Indian system. Houses change according to the Ascendant.
Kundalis in Western Countries
In western countries, Kundalis are prepared differently. A Kundali starts from the Ascendant. It is divided into twelve parts. Ascendant is considered to be the beginning of the first house. However, in the Indian systems, Ascendant is considered to be the half of the first house. In the Western system, houses are lined from the left hand side in order.
