Astrology is not a complex science as it often made out to be and, in the hands of the world-famous 'human computer' Shakuntala Devi, it becomes yet simpler and easier to understand and practice. The present book discusses zodiacs, planets, asteisms, the rising signs, Bhavas, Yogas, Dasas and their effects and transits. It enables the reader to cast a horoscope, and also read one.
Shakuntala Devi, though well-known as a mathematical genius the world over, is essentially an astrologer. She learnt this science in the lap of her grandfather when quite young; hers is a well-known family of priests and astrologers in South India.
