THE HINDU BOOK OF ASTROLOGY
For thousands of years the Hindu Astrologers have by their knowledge of the solar system been enabled to formulate a system of Astrology, which enables them to speak with scientific authority and certainty with respect to the planetary influences upon mankind.
Each person is born in or under one of the twelve signs of the Zodiac and is thus influenced more or less throughout life by the planetary conditions at time of birth.
In this work I propose to state the natural tendencies of each person and in a certain way indicate what they should do and what they should not do to make their life a success.
By referring to your sign, which is indicated by the date and month when you were born, you will see what your natural tendencies are, and what it is best for you to do to attract and use unseen forces and powers which are your birthright, and which will aid you to make your future bright.
Each and every person is naturally endowed with peculiar and great powers which make for good, and also are born with tendencies which must be corrected in order that the higher and good powers and forces may be able to work to advantage. No matter how bad your lot may seem to you, and how difficult it is for you to get along in the world, you can readily change all darkness to the brightest sunshine if you only go about it in the right spirit.
The first step to take is to fix in your mind a strong desire for what you wish, and persistently and patiently hold this desire until you get it fulfilled. In India, men, through the advice of eminent astrologers, will have an aspiration to accomplish a certain thing, and will persistently hold and believe they will be successful in attaining what they desire until they get their aspiration satisfied.
There are three things absolutely essential to happiness and which will always bring success; viz., hope, patience and determination--persistent determination to reach success. When we learn to exercise our mind and will on hope, patience and determination, we find a wide door open to permanent health, wealth, honor and happiness.
