Astrology nowadays is universally recognised as a science, based on sound mathematical principles and calculations.
But while it is easy to agree to this premise, it is difficult to find a well-researched comprehensive book to guide the general reader.
In response to this need, this book is designed to bring home to the reader the fundamentals of the discipline with the predictive aspect.
One, who reads this book, will not only be able to make fairly correct predictions but also will be encouraged to take to the study of more advanced works.
The book is a complete astrology guide that begins with the fundamental principles bringing you a wealth of information offering-
How 12 Rasis have been formulated, and goes on to explain the method of casting a horoscope.
What are the qualities ascribed to people born under different signs( for instance, people born under Aries are of independent nature).
What is the meaning of Bhavas (viz., what a planet indicates in a specific house).
What do the Mahadasas of different planets mean?
What are Yogas (for instance Sakaka Yoga makes a person stubborn and hated by relatives and Parvata Yoga makes a person passionate).
The book also offers a special section on the subjects of matrimony, compatibility along with case studies predicting major events of your life like career-change, gain or loss of fortune etc.
The book remains one of the most authoritative guides on astrology, written by a leading authority. Your search for the best book available on the subject must end here.
