Product Description

From the Author

An Ideal Book for Beginner's to Study Vedic Astrology
I have worked on 'The Essentials of Vedic Astrology' with students in mind. The idea of the book evolved from my beginner's courses in London and Romsey, England. Vedic Astrology is the astrology of India where it is known as Jyotish, the science of light- it is a path of self knowledge through the study of the planets and stars. How the cycles of time touch our lives and give indications of our strengths and weakeness. You do not need to have previous knowledge of Vedic Astrology to read 'The Essentials of Vedic Astrology', you will be guided through the various aspects from the philosophy to how to interpret the Vedic Chart. I write about the deeper aspects of Vedic Astrology like Karma, Past lives, Gunas, the Soul's purpose in this life, how to relate the deeper spiritual aspects with the practical realities of life. This is my first book. I would love to hear your comments.

After 28 years as a western astrologer, I decided at last to dip a tentative toe into Vedic astrology. The first book I read was Light on Life, which was wonderful, inspiring, but intensive, more philosophical in a way than hands on. The Elements of Vedic astrology is my second book on the subject and was a joy to read, making the whole system come alive and making sense in day to day/spiritual terms. The difficulty for me with Jyotish/Vedic astrology (apart from the shock of discovering I'm a Cancer with Moon in Aries and Sun in Sagittarius instead of Capricorn with Moon in Taurus and Leo rising!) is that there is no lovely mandala type of chart wheel with vivid aspect patterns which can be read intuitively as energy flow; instead the novice Jyotishi is faced with rows and columns of dry looking numbers and letters. Komilla Sutton makes a very good job of making all this seem not only comprehensible but accessible. Everything is explained clearly and in a way which is supportive and encouraging. Not only this, but she shows how one can work positively with the limitations of karmic patterns in the birth chart, and as they unfold through the Vimshottari Dashas and the transits. I especially liked her explanations of Rahu and Ketu, the lunar nodes - an area which has always been of deep interest to me in western astrology too. Anyone who thinks Vedic astrology is too rigid and fatalistic should read The Elements of Vedic Astrology. This is a beautiful, enlightening and caring book which succeeds admirably in explaining the Indian system of astrology to people who were not raised in the culture which gave birth to it.
