About the Book:
Predictive Astrology is not an art of fortune-telling. Contrary to the popular belief, it is an organised and a systematic body of knowledge with its own time-tested principles and well-developed rules. In ancient India it was studied as a part of the Vedas (a Vedanga) and cultivated to a high degree of perfection. It represents an accumulation of knowledge and insights into correlations that exist between planetary movements, the cosmic rhythms, and the events and happenings that shape our lives.
Based on the influence of the Ascendant, the Janma Nakshatras, and other planetary combinations, Predictive Astrology identifies the inherent capabilities of an individual and provides the freedom to select a course of action best suited to one's strengths.
In simple language, the book explains how to choose favourable options in education, career, profession and business; to predict wealth and prosperity, success in love, romance and marriage, the state of health and longevity, and happiness and harmony in life. It provides guidelines to convert opportunities to advantage. It thus enables us to be a master, rather than be a prisoner of our destiny - and therein lies the critical importance of Indian Predictive Astrology and of this book.

Back of Book:
This book introduces and explains the ancient Indian knowledge and wisdom of Predictive Astrology - the Jataka Shastra, as practised and perfected over the centuries. It will help you understand how planetary influences shape your personality and predetermine major events in your life, thus providing you with the power to master your destiny and plan your future more successfully.
Since this is a book on Indian Predictive Astrology, it is pertinent to point out that there are some definite differences between the Indian system of astrology and the Western system.
A major difference, among others, is that the date of entry of the Sun into each zodiac sign differs in the two systems. For example, according to the Indian system, the Sun enters Aries on or about April 14, whereas, in the Western system, the Sun enters Aries on March 21. The Indian system has been followed in this book.
