Most northern Indian astrologers define varna by the sign of the zodiac occupied by the Moon.

Most South Indian astrologers define varna by the nakshatra occupied by the Moon.

And what is the technique for determining varna prescribed in the classical texts of Jyotish?

  • He answers there that varna is determined by the sign of the zodiac occupied by the Moon. But he quotes from the BPHS about ascending signs (Lagnas), and not at all lunar ones. Therefore, there is no normal answer to my question.
