Comment: In the various sections, the author gives traditional Vedic rules for longevity, western rules, and the K.P. version. There is an emphasis judging longevity with horary charts. The chart starts when the client picks a number between 1 & 249. B.V. Raman did readings from picked numbers, and elsewhere K.P. astrologers have used the 1-249 series for other horary questions.

TRANSIT OF PLANETS in Sign-Star-Sub in 2006 - K. Hariharan & Dr. E. Venkataramani, $20.00

Contents: For each day of the year, the positions of Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, Saturn, Rahu, Ketu, Uranus, Neptune & Pluto. These positions include the daily sign lords, the daily star lords, the daily sub-lords, and the daily sub-sub lords. For the moon, this means an additional 6-8 daily positions. Notice also that Rahu & Ketu are given individually. They may be opposite one another, but their lords, from day to day, are entirely different. Times when planets change, from sub to sub, are given. I presume these are in GMT. This is a wonderful reference. I only wish we could get it in time.

Comparing the positions for 1 January 2006 with those given in the Betz Ephemeris confirms the longitudes are for midnight, GMT.

HANDBOOK ON ASTROLOGY (volume 1) - K. Hariharan, $11.00


A Q&A format: Questions, with answers. On page 61, a section entitled, Eclipsed Planet & Its Results

Comment: A book of typical questions, both those asked of astrologers, and those astrologers ask among themselves. I counted 18 questions or topics, some of which were follow-ups to earlier questions, which means the "answers" are more along the lines of extended analysis. (Contrast to B.V. Raman's Catechisms, with its briefer & terser responses.) Here are some of the questions asked of Hariharan:

Question: I am a good writer. Can astrology throw a clue on which subject I should write? (pg. 1)

Q. Mars, lord of 5 & 10 for Kataka lagna in the constellation of lord of 11, is said to promise satisfactory gains in speculation, etc. Is not the lord of 11 a bhadaka sthana adhipathi for Katanka lagna? How, then, can Mars' placement in the constellation of Venus bring about beneific results? Can you elcucidate? (pg. 3)

Q. How are we to judge the results of a lord of dasa, bhukti, etc? In what way does a planet's aspect affect another? (pg. 11)

Q. Can the lord of an evil house (say, 6, 8 or 12) transiting in the constellation of a benefic (e.g. lord of 1, 10 or 11) bring about desirable results? (pg. 24)

Q. Can the lord of 7 and 10, in the 12th bhava in the house of the lord of the 6th & 11th be a benefic? (pg. 30)

Krishnamurti Publications, 104 pages.

HANDBOOK ON ASTROLOGY, part II - K. Hariharan, $11.00
Contents: A Q&A format: Questions, with answers.

Comment: In Vol. 2, questions range from the elementary (what is an ephemeris?) to the advanced, such as:

Qn: What are the combinations to buy a lottery ticket?

Ans: Significators of 2nd, 3rd, 6th & 11th should be synchronized with Moon & Lagna - these are the combinations to buy a Lottery Ticket. (pg. 56)

Qn: What combination makes a person timid & coward?

Ans: The Third Sublord, being Saturn or in the star of Saturn or the Third Sublord is connected to the Eighth or Twelfth House, the person becomes timid & coward and that he will have a fear complex. (pg. 98)

Somewhat scattered. Once you get past the very elementary stuff, there is much else of use.
