Bhrigu Samhita – 2nd Revised Edition

Predictive Techniques Deciphered

This book, the first of a series, gives an in-depth study of the various permutations and combinations which can result in forecasting events so as to help both the astrologer and the native in getting to know of a system and principle which the traditional form of astrology does not clearly bring forth.

Know About Charms, Talismans and Spells
About charms we find gems, jewels, coins, vases, goblets, stones, weapons, herbs, trees, skulls, bones, buildings, animals, water, human beings; there is also that large section called spells where the charm consists of a formula of words or written characters often the object and formula being used conjunction which known as talismans.
They may also be classed as individual, family, tribal and national. Classification of charms is a difficult matter for the forces at work though sometimes distinct will often unite and work in conjunction. There are many forms of words and designs by means of which certain occult results are supposed to be achieved, these are usually called spells.
The book covers the matter related to charms, talismans and spells in length. It also tries to tell every aspect related to this subject. We have associated the subject with Astrology so that the readers could achieve more through it.

Know About Zodiac Signs

Description :
The zodiac signs have evinced great interest. We watch the television and read the print media to find out what is predicted for our Sun Sign.

There are twelve Sun Signs starting with Aries and ending at Pisces. These signs have logic and have been explained briefly in the book. Also during my astrological study and advice for over three decades now, I found people wanting to know more about their nature.

Your zodiac sign broadly tells you of your intrinsic nature. It may vary from individual to individual. Our acts and deeds are directly related to our nature and this applies to every aspect of our life. Not only the actions but the manner in which an individual approaches a problem is also a reflection of his traits. The chain leading us to act has our inert nature as an important link. This, I believe, is reflected through our Sun Sign. The traits are refined due to environment, circumstances and other factors about which I shall not dwell in details.

The Zodiac Sign of yours is a fairly good indicator of your personality and your instincts irrespective of your strata and position. This book deals with the Zodiac signs in details and also attempts to look into aspects of relationships, love, compatibility with other signs, financial and professional implication. It also covers aspects of favorable color, direction and other such issues of interest along with simple solutions applicable for each sign.

The over a dozen other books that I have written on various planets and systems are technical in nature and this is the first book which can be read and understood by all and I am sure one would find it useful.
With a view to give broad trends that can potentially happen with respect to each Zodiac Sign I have given predictions for twelve (12) years based on the transit of the major outer planets. This will provide each reader the sensitive points or areas of concern in the years discussed. The exact happenings might differ but broadly it will guide you to act and tackle stress points.

Know About LUMINARIES (The Sun & The Moon)
The Moon (Chandra) and the Sun (Surya) are the great mysterious planets, proclaiming the incalculable wonders of Divine Design. The Moon and The Sun happen to be the only planets which are luminous in Character. All the rest are opaque. Hence, astrology without the study of these two great planets remains incomplete. From my own long experience in the field of Astrology, I have come to believe that the eclipse on Moon and Sun is a mystic phenomenon, which creates subtle effects.

Know About Mars & Mercury
Instinct, Freewill, Karma, God and Creation are the topics which are frequently discussed. People from all walks of life lean on these words. The two planets discussed here are 'Mars' and 'Mercury' and in one of the earlier books we had taled of Jupiter and Saturn. Mars is the planet which governs strength, action and on the extreme side i.e. war while Mercury is the planet of intellect, mind and mathematics in one's behavious in all walks of life.

The principle is based on the rotation of Jupiter and it becoming the Ascendant. It stays in a sign for 12 years. The horoscope first should be analyzed with regard to the longevity of the native.

Your Profession Ups & Downs

Profession is a complex subject and an offspring to a lot of qualitative and quantitative things which result in fulfillment, influence and possessions. Profession relates to wealth, prestige and family life. It thus is not a subject which can be evaluated by one house or its lords but all houses and planets get interrelated and the synthesis in an unified manner result to predictions. In the current context with multiple jobs, carriers and globalization this aspect of life needs an in depth understanding from the basic strength of horoscope to the understanding that Raja Yogas present may not have their impact in the life span. This book is a compilation where chapters could interest to the early learners as well as those doing research work. To again emphasize that no book can cover all aspects or give formulae this is an effort to present some techniques and the permutations, combinations with your intuitive conclusion would be helpful.
