horoscope" Planets are happy in some conditions and unhappy in some other conditions" There are varying emotional states"
;efore you learn the follo0ing lesson' overcome the mechanistic attitude of the age 0e live" Astrology of Hindus is not a set of
formulae to $e applied in a push<$utton 0ay" What is being given here is for a quick understanding of the fundamentals only. Do
not take them as final pronouncements. If you commit that mistake, you will become dogmatic.
Hindu astrology is 0orld=s most developed astrology $ecause India is the land 0here astrology originated and' 0as developed
over a period of thousands of years" Here many astrological e.periments have $een done and many techniques tested and re<
tested" Avoid dogma $ut follo0 the steps given $elo0" The more fle.i$le $ut' not romantically stupid' you are in learning astrology'
the $etter are the chances of your developing proper astrological a$ility" Remember it step by step
