The notice that astrologers can unfold lives and reveal what Walts at the next bend is a thought that comes to all and populist have inspired the author to come up with a series of books that will discuss the various aspects in astrology, putting together the research and findings by various groups and the experience gained during his journey. The purpose of the encyclopedia is an attempt to put a clear understanding of the process of astrology, taking into account the first basic principles and dealing with different topics. The encyclopedia which would consist of over eighteen books is intended to be brought out over a period of two years. These would cover the basic in astrology and then go on to the predictive techniques, the nadi astrology, Tajik, Yoga’s, nakshatras, rectification of birth time, Vargas, dashes, mundane prashna, muhurta, remedy and other aspects of interest.

In this book the author has tried to explain effects of transit of inner and outer plants influence of Ashtakvarga on transit and preparation of various Vargas. Result of retrograde plants in transit. Transit and Eclipser, fructification of events with the help of double/ triple transit and synthesis of dacha and savatobhadra chakra. Use of transit in birth rectification, longevity, progeny, marriage calculation erc. Various factors which modify transit influence have also been discussed.



Trasits are one the main means used in horoscope reading. They are used to forecast future trend and developments. Astrological transit is about interpreting the ongoing movement of the planets as they transit the horoscope. These transits are studies in the Natal charts to tell about the timing or fructication of the events.

In this book the initial chapters deal with the basic understanding of the meaning of transit, the rules to be applied and about the planets. We have also dealt with the rules to be applied in predicting the result of transiting planets. Basic Transit Rules of planets in houses, Signs, Nakshatra and Divisional Charts is explained at length.

The book then dwells in factors that modify the results of a Transit. It then goes into explaining the impact of the transiting inner planets. I have also gone in details explaining the impact of Jupiter, Saturn, Nodes and Mars in Transit with various permutation and combination.

In the predictive part the chapters then explain the fructification of events and the application of Transits. Application of Ashtakvaga in relation to the Transit of Planets has been dealt in a separate chapter.

The basic principle and the applicability of the Sarvato Bhadra Chakra with a chapter on the impact of Saturn’s Transit in Libra have dealt which the readers will find useful.

This book starts from the explaining the basic principles of Transit and then moves to explaining the predictive aspects. It thus will help the beginners students and also those doing research. I am sure this book will be useful to all readers.

I would like to end with the thought of Vrindavan & Banker Bihari whose blessings I always look upon in all my endeavors.
