This unusual study attempts to discuss the evolutionary impact of astrological factors.Sorrows, frustration, ill-health, poverty, social and marital discord arise when the individual tried to resist the psychological orientation needed for one’s enduring unfoldment.

ZODIACAL SIGNS and stars come under a close scrutiny in this book with the spotlight on their intimate relationship.
Unlike other similar publications that have dwelt at length on the same theme, the approach of this author seeks to infuse a new orientation in the uncovering of evolutionary impact of astrological factors.
A student of astrology, straining his nerve to analyse and understand the esoteric substances of the mystic science normally encased in enigmatic and sometimes perplexing guidelines, will, however, find the contents of this book more abstruse and imperspicuous as the author attempts to unfold the outcome of his deep study on the Zodiacal signs and constellations in relation to the link between astrology and the life process.
An understanding of the nature and significance of the constellations and their mystic relationship with human evolution, terrestrial growth with racial history and unveiling of various finer forces of nature, the author claims, could unravel the affinity between man and his unknown creator.
The 12 Zodiacal signs and 27 constellations divided into three categories — Rajas (activity), Tamas (inertia or sloth) and Sattwa (harmony or righteousness) and their respective attributes vis-a-vis the stars and vice versa are well portrayed along with the amplification of the embryological impact of the signs and asterisms on the life processes.
The delineation of the Rajasic, Tamasic and Sattwic impulses, ways of overcoming the struggles on the path of self realisation, the impact of Karmic trail and the intrinsic characteristics of the stars (positive and negative) laced by scriptural and Puranic episodes etc., amply show the masterly exposition by the author of the forces unleashed by the signs and stars.
Astrological predictions have since long baffled the man. He wanted answers to his psychic quest, methods of self-realization and a knowledge of his ultimate goal. Astrology indicated that his everyday life was guided and controlled by some super physical powers as well as by his inner core of the being his soul. These are ethereal concepts which cannot be described in concrete language. The religious descriptions of this spiritual aspect of one’s being are veiled in myths and allegories. These can be comprehended only by the use of proper keys to the various hidden forces operating on man. These keys are difficult to obtain but the occult teachers have indicated different clues to unravel the mysteries of hidden spiritual force. The stellar science revealed the special line on which individual was progressing. Astrology to be useful must recognize the different stages of spiritual unfoldment. The present study suggests some of these principles which could illuminate the mind of the reader and help him in his quest for self realization and the knowledge of his ultimate goal.
