GETTING STARTEDAll members are requested to download the Free Astrological Software for Calculation of Charts ,from the

link given below. http://vedicastrologer.org/jh/index.htm

SUBSEQUENTLY Click to open the Programme. On the Screen You shall find visible, on the left side a chart, and on the right side calculations pertaining to the same which means that all is fine. You now go to the Preferences on top most part of the Screen and select Ayanamsha- Krishnamoorty KP. (Why and whats the meaning, we shall go at later stages of our course). Press okay and save it. If You have time for some explorations then you may also change the default settings of the software, to the location where You stay at. (This may help you later on when You learn Horary astrology.) Now You are ready to make charts on Your PC. (Later on we will also learn to do this manually). But this is needed to understand the theory part. Go to File- Click on new. Nothing will happen apparently except the screen will blink for a moment. Go to Edit now and click on Birth Data. You dont have to do anything here except fill in the birth details of the chart you intend to make. Remember in birth time you have to mention in 24 hours format. which means that if the birth is in afternoon at 2.00pm you will have to mention 14.00 as birth time. On the right side check and confirm that the calendar used is Gregorian. You fill in the city name, choose the country and the longitudes and latitudes would appear automatically. You do not have to fill in any other details. Press okay and save the chart in whatever name You wish to.

EXAMPLES TO CHECK I am giving examples for you as under so that You can confirm if your settings

are right or not. Chart A- (Male) Birth particularsDate of Birth - November 16th 1988 Time of Birth -11.00.00 am Place of Birth -Delhi Longitude 77 E 13 Latitude 28 N 40 If You have filled in right then the following details should appear on the right side of the chart You have just made. Lagna 27degrees Saggittarius 16minutes 58seconds Sun 0 Degrees Scorpio 29 minutes 19 seconds Moon 21 degrees Capricorn 49 minutes 36 seconds Chart B - (Male) Date of Birth - April 21st 1967 Time of Birth - 4.50.00 am Place of Birth - Bombay Longitude 72E 50 Latitude 18 N 58 Lagna - 8 degrees Pisces 13 minutes 16 seconds Sun - 6 degrees Aries 53 minutes 21 seconds Moon - 17 degrees Leo 20 minutes 23 seconds. If You are able to get above right, then go on to put your own birth particluars and save it. That should be good for a start. regards, Bhaskar. Chapter 1 Introduction 1 “Shri Ganeshay Namah” A small Prayer to The Lord who is Omnipresent, Omniscient, and Omnipotent. “Dear Loving Lord, we are on the way to Learning of this Divine Science of Astrology, which knowledge has been imparted by You to the selected few in Your close circle, and who in turn have imparted this to the ancestors of humanity, coming down now , to us fortunates, blessed with Your Grace. May we use this knowledge only for good of those who come in contact of us, to help

them, to make the quality of their life better, to guide them, show them a way in their times of stress, and may we never put fear in these troubled souls , nor take any advantage of them, by doing so, and the day we do this, You have our full permission, to take back whatever You have given us, including the breath of life . We thank You for allowing us access to the Noble study of this Great Science and promise to use it for worthy causes”. Dear Friends, You must be knowing that when You buy a Casio Diary, a manual comes alongwith, Or when you buy a Laptop, a manual comes alongwith. Did you ever wonder that when You were born, then too there was a certain design to it, A purpose ,an intention, available in the manual related to you , which contains heaps of information about you , which you may not be aware of , but which can be known partly , what is intended only to be known to you by God . Yes you guessed right. Your manual is your horoscope which shows the configuration of the stars , planets & constellations in the heavenly skies at the time of your auspicious birth. Why auspicious ? Because Your birth is not a default , but a purposeful entry. Any way coming to the point ,this knowledge of deciphering the effects of particular planetary combinations at the time of your birth is known as Astrology. A Quote from Mark Edmund JonesMan is not what he is because he was born when he was, but he was born when he was because he was, potentially, what he is . A person is not born just for the sake of it, or lands up here by Fluke or a mistake by Nature. He is born only because it is intended From him to complete the debts and credits he owes to Sundry Creditorsa and from Sundry Debtors. This owing business continues from past lives, and continues till he is able to form a space where nothing remains , no past debts owed and no future gains to be received, but just He remains with He. The former “He” here is the native himself and the latter “He” is the Creator or God. This merging would complete the story of the creation and Evolution of a Particluar Individual. Till the time he completes this story, and Whenever Takes human form , The Birth Chart is the Pointer for the debts owed, the credits due and the happiness or sorrow in store for the present human life. Some Questions and ther Answers

In the same way the promises of the chart have to be coupled with proper support in form of hard work . actually welcomes him in his enterprise. MOST IMPORTANT Remember that Efforts cannot be substituted by knowledge of astrological Inputs. he Is now supposed to come down in his intake of hard drinks. No one goes inside the cave to give him food. then He would be cautious and not start a new business enterprise in that period with life-long capital. For example a person who drinks a quarter of Whisky daily And once visits an astrologer and comes to know that he has an afflicted Jupiter (Weak Liver) by birth . as he now knows the minus area of his life health wise. Another exampleIf one knows that he is running a bad time astrologically. The Promises shown in a Birth Chart can only come with the Efforts put in by the Native. then armed with this knowledge. It has to be taken for Guidance. then the native should work towards fructification Of the same a few months before this next year begins. so that the New Year which ushers in. till better times as advised by his astrologer. and thus save it from extinction. How can stars and planets which are Millions of Miles away from us Effect us ? Dont we not feel the heat of The Sun billions of Miles away ? Does not The Moon cause the Tides in the sea ? Does not their particular movement and positioning cause Eclipse and darkness on Earth ? SO why can they not influence the Human Body and affairs thereof which is also containing major part of liquid in it ? How can a particular configuration cause a separate chart and effects For various persons born at different times and thus different configurations ? Do not think that these planets are just round or spherical balls . Do You know that even the Lion has to come out of his cave and search for food when he Is hungry. Another example – If one knows the coming year is going to give him good wealth through bsuiness. efforts and Labour from the native.Is Astrology to be relied on completely ? How does it help ?

(The above is wrong results actually.by heart and probably right. For advanced predictions a) I know the constellation in which The Sun is placed in this chart and can give the effects in narration. if You make a chart in the computer. and not in the 9th . you shall find that the Sun has moved now to 9th House . Why did I make a mistake ? Because in August the Sun rises 1 and a half hour early than the Sunrise of January. thus. How could I make predictons after arriving at above statistics ? Because a) I know what are the characteristics of The Ascendant Sagittarius and can talk in flowery language about the positive points of this Ascendant rising and the nature of the native. e) I know that Sun is aspecting (we will learn about this later) the 3rd house and what effects would this produce. please tread carefully in such matters). and hence even the noon comes earlier. you will find. b) I may also be knowing which sign Saturn would be in the year of birth whatever it may be .Date .
