amsha = a part, section, portion, share of things which are specifically inseparable or inherently linked together.
An amsha in Jyotisha is a part, portion, slice, which
can be considered separately for some analytical
purposes; however the Jyotisha forever keeps in mind
that ultimately no amsha can be understood out of the
context of the whole kundali.
Separating any amsha, taking it out for individual inspection, making a judgment on that particular portion, must be appreciated as only one part of a total process. No one single factor can ever be determinative in a Jyotisha reading.
