Description

This book is a comprehensive presentation of Vedic astrology and makes this difficult-to-understand subject clear, practical and relevant. It explains all of its important factors relative to Western astrology.

Topics include planets, signs, houses, aspects, harmonic charts and planetary period, along with rules of prediction and interpretation. It outlines the remedial measures of Vedic astrology including gems, colors, herbs, mantras, deities, Yoga practices and life-style and has a special chapter on medical astrology and Ayurveda.

This book reveals the deeper implications of the Vedic system in sections on astrology as a spiritual science, astrology and psychology, astrology and Yoga. Of special interest, it explains the cycle of the world-ages (Yugas), showing the Vedic view of human history, and the connection of our solar system with galactic sources of energy. Thirty-two example charts of all types are explained including those of many spiritual teachers.
