About My Articles

Do you find Vedic Astrology fascinating? Would you like to gain more knowledge and understanding of this ancient astrological science of India without resorting to dry and ponderous textbooks?   If so, you may be interested in my articles. Written in an engaging story-telling style, many students over the past two decades have told me that these are among the best material on the subject that they've ever encountered.   Rich in content, yet easy to read, they bring alive the many techniques of interpretation and prediction of this fascinating science. These techniques are very clearly explained and then profusely illustrated both with the charts of world famous personalities, and also with those of people to whom I've given successful predictions.   Although written for students of all levels, they do presume at least a basic understanding of Vedic Astrology.   The following titles are immediately available and I will be adding one each month.
