Though Rashi (division of moving group of stars) band stats from 0 to 360 degree, but in Vedic Jyotish each Rashi (division of moving group of stars) gets initialized to zero in the beginning. Thus each Rashi (division of moving group of stars) will have 0 to 30 degrees in Mesha (Aries) and Vrishaba (Taurus) and so on. The above chart with degrees is just for our understanding and making the concept clear.
Refer to table below and find out the Rashi (division of moving group of stars) from the date of birth of an object. If object is born in Feb 24th, then your Rashi (division of moving group of stars) is Kumbha (Aquarius). Also note that Surya (Sun) moves from one Rashi (division of moving group of stars) to another, which is called Sankranti.
