In this book a detailed account of the science of astrology has been given with a view to making the reader a good astrologer. It shows that astrology does not make man a fatalist, a helpless automation in the hands of a merciless Fate. Astrology should rather help him to towards self-exertion and self-help. This hoary lore, according to the author, is to be practised not for selfish ends, but to guide the needy and the distressed, to remove the cause of their suffering and to turn their attention towards God.
