Know About Zodiac Signs: Preface

Dr. Shanker Adawal


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/Ascendant Sign.

There are twelve Zodiac Signs starting with Aries and ending at Pisces. These signs have logic and have been explained briefly in this 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 Ascendant/Sun Sign. The traits re 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 compiled by me 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 for practical purpose in the years discussed. The exact happenings might differ but broadly it will guide you to act wisely and tackle stress points.

The motivation to write a book on the Zodiac signs came from Vrinda, my daughter, who is a seventh class student. She wanted the yearly predictions which I had done for last year. The request she got was from an excellent cross section. I decided to then write on the Zodiac Signs, other associated generic aspects and trends for the next twelve years for each sign. Love and thanks to Vrinda.

My gratitude and thanks to my mother, Dr Krishna Saksena who herself is an author in English Literature and a great devotee of Ma Durga. Her divine visions and inputs have been incorporated in this book.

My wife, in spite of all kinds of resources required, has motivated me to continue working in this field as she calls it as my greatest stress buster for motivation and supports me. This year also happens to be our 25th anniversary year and this book is a way of saying Thank You to her for all the support and motivation.

Narender Sagar has been a great inspiration to me and he spends hours in planning and ensuring the best. My special thanks to him. I would also like to acknowledge the contribution of Col (Er.) Dee Baswani (Retd.) and Pawan Ballabh in editing and guidance. Also thanks to my sister Tanya Gupta who is doing research at Bhartiya Vidya Bhawan for her critical inputs.

I dedicate this book to my father Late Kailash Chandra Saksena for whom astrology was like a religion and he pursued it passionately despite being a senior bureaucrat.

I will use the next few months in developing a compilation, from all classics, for various streams of astrology, and present them with views in a structured format for the readers of this science. Narender Sagar has agreed to take up the project and this was my fathers’ wish. I visited Narenderji with him in the early seventies and listened them talk.

I would like to end this with the thought of Vrindawan and Shri Banke Behari whose blessings have been with me and always look upon him in all my endeavors.
