‘Our destiny is nothing but the result of our own actions of innumerable past lives as well as the present one’.

In this simply written, well-researched book the author provides the key to unlock the secrets of the zodiac and know the future.

Learn, Think and Predict through Astrology explains how rashis (signs), grahas (planets),nakshatras (constellations) and bhavas (houses)—the basic principles of astrology—determine your destiny and the course of your future. Using these principles the book teaches you how to make your janma-kundali (birth-chart) in a simple yet interesting manner, thus telling you what the future has in store for you.

It also gives astrological solutions and remedies to improve your physical, spiritual, material and emotional well-being, thereby enabling you to live a more fulfilling and successful life.

This book is ideal for both the novice who wants to learn the principles of the science of astrology as well as the experienced astrologer who could use it for reference book.
