The Yogas in Astrology deals primarily with the technique of analysis & interpretation of the various astrological yogas according to the Parshari system.
The approach to analysis is based on the standard astrological principles which are so often ignored when dealing with this all-important subject.
The role of the houses where the various yogas form, the signs involved, the other planetary influences on the yoga-forming planets, the strength & weakness of the constituent planets, their status in the vargas, and the operating dasha have all been elucidated with examples.
One full chapter has been devoted to the famous, but ill-understood, Gaja-Kesari yoga as a model example of the technique of yoga interpretation, and the various factors which facilitate or obstruct the functioning of a yoga.
The Pancha-Mahapurusha yoga, the solar and the lunar yogas, and the important Dhana yogas, Raja yogas and Arishta yogas have all been treated exhaustively. The generally ignored Nabhasa yogas have been classified in a unique manner & their significance in horoscopic analysis emphasised.
One chapter is devoted to the Sanyasa yoga.
This book is profusely illustrated with examples.
