Astrology is not A complex science as it is often made out to be and, in the hands of the world-famous ‘human computer’, Shakuntala Devi, it becomes yet simpler and easier to understand and practise. The present book discusses zodiacs, planets, asterisms, the rising signs, Bhavas, Yogas, Dasas and their effects and transits. It enables the reader to cast a horoscope, and also read one. There are tables of correction for various cities and for sidereal time, Nakshatra divisions and Vimshottari Dasa, Navamsas, etc. It is a complete book that leaves nothing to become an amateur astrologer.
Symbolical Patterns in 'The Parable' and the Second Part of 'Faust'
Author: Alice Pearl Raphael
Category: Literary Collections
Originally published in 1965, this study examines the concealed meanings in the second part of Faust, often considered obscure. It is of value not only to students of literature but also comparative religions, as it deals with Goethe’s knowledge of ancient myths, mysteries and Hellenistic religions. It is of value too, to those interested in alchemy as it traces the many alchemical references in Faust. The book gives a psychological interpretation of elements of Goethe’s personal life and work, which succeeds in making the man and the veiled references in his most profound work accessible to the modern reader.
