Rasis and Bhava cusps in Varshaphal

Finished the first Varshaphal course and am starting the second. All of the example charts used only show the Rasis and not Bhava cusps. I want some clarification on what we are supposed to prioritize to read for this technique.

For example, if one has a chart with Cancer Lagna. Well, clearly Cancer is the 1st Bhava. But, say the Muthaha falls in Libra as the 4th Rasi, but it contains the 5th cusp. Would one read this still as the Muthaha in the 4th for the year, or give priority to actual local space and use the Bhava cusps? 

Continuing with the same example: say Venus, as the Muthaha Lord, is in the 12th Rasi from the Lagna, which is Gemini. No Bhava cusp is here. The 12th actually falling in Taurus. What then? Interpretation based on the Rasi: Muthaha Lord in the 12th (Rasi), or not applicable, because Muthaha Lord not joined any Bhava cusp?

My understanding is that Varshaphala uses whole houses/rasis, not cusps. Personally, I never pay attention to cusps when looking at a Varshaphala chart.

@mona  I need to get back to Varshaphala as i have decided that is the technique that i will concentrate on. But there are so many foundational classes that i need to take and studying part time it takes quite a while. One of these days we should form a Varshaphala club.... 😀

@tuyetv yes! I had a call with Vanaja a couple months ago as she was studying it and we both had questions, Mattias is also gradually getting into it. Am very much focused on Rahu/Ketu these days myself but would definitely love to get back into it more seriously later during the year or early next year 🙂

The classic varshaphala text refers to using the Bhava Chalita chart. I do use the house cups for Varshaphala.

@ernst Ernst; can you tell me what takes precedence? In my example, I say that the Muthaha/"Muntha" is in the 4th Rasi, but contains the 5th cusp. Do you prioritize bhava cusps always?

For Muthaha, the rasi from lagna is very important, that sets up the easy or hardness of the year. In 4th rasi from the lagna, its a year of change that is stressful in most cases. The 5th house being there, means 5th house affairs will be more important.
