Description
Preface

This volume originally appeared in two volumes, as “The Guide to Astrology, Vols. I. and II.,” and were sold separately. They have now been rewritten, revised and made into one volume, complete in itself, so far as the Astrological part of a Nativity is concerned. Information, not previously published by myself, on “Birthday Figures” and “Transits” is given, which the reader will find useful and reliable to a very large extent.

The most unsatisfactory part of Astrology is that dealing with “Directions”, or the “Calculation of Future Events.” At present there is no system known that will give reliable results, but the method taught in this volume will be found to be more accurate than any other known system, yet even here there appears to be something lacking, some “missing link” which would explain why some directions fall out exactly and like a thunderclap, and others pass without any appreciable event. Why this is, no one can tell. Perhaps it is a wise provision of Providence that it is so, on account of the fear and dread of misfortune which seem inherent in the human heart. To know that certain death or misfortune awaited one at a certain time, would drive to madness or suicide a very large majority of the inhabitants of this earth; and in this way “True Astrology” would be a terrible scourge, compared with which, the bloodiest wars, or the greatest natural catastrophes would be as nought.

All through the book I have done my best to make everything as simple and plain as possible, so that the youngest student, or most illiterate person can readily understand.

Testimonials
I've just received the shawl and love it already!! Thank you so much,
Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
B. Werts, USA
Very good service. Very speed and fine. I recommand
Laure, France
Thank you! As always, I can count on Exotic India to find treasures not found in stores in my area.
Florence, USA
Thank you very much. It was very easy ordering from the website. I hope to do future purchases from you. Thanks again.
Santiago, USA
Thank you for great service in the past. I am a returning customer and have purchased many Puranas from your firm. Please continue the great service on this order also.
Raghavan, USA
Excellent service. I feel that there is genuine concern for the welfare of customers and there orders. Many thanks

I got the rare Pt Raju's book with a very speedy and positive service from Exotic India. Thanks a lot Exotic India family for such a fantabulous response.
Dr. A. K. Srivastava, Allahabad
It is with great pleasure to let you know that I did receive both books now and am really touched by your customer service. You developed great confidence in me. Will again purchase books from you.
