Astrology in Marriage Counselling

M C Jain (Author) O P Verma (Editor)
Synopsis "Modern" Indians, like "modern" peoples everywhere, have no interest in traditions & so rarely consult astrologers. As for the traditionally-minded, most Indians, like most westerners, do not have a personal astrologer, so usually rely on recommendations from priests at the local temple. The local temple is, of course, conservative & traditional. Astrologers they recommend will be those versed in traditional Vedic astrology. The cornerstone of traditional Vedic compatibility is the famous navamsha, the one-ninth divisional chart, which Jain never mentions, there being nothing remotely Vedic in this book. There is this, instead: Obviously, most wives work because they want that extra pay cheque. The amazing part is, they rarely want it for mink coats or diamonds. They want it for such things as a radio, a TV, an automatic washer & dryer, vacation trips, adequate insurance coverage, dental & medical care, a rainy-day savings account, a reasonably reliable car and to say [sic] buying a home of their own. (pg. 198) For a Indian, even one of 2003, this is strange on the face of it. My best guess is the original author was a New Yorker, writing around 1960. M.C. Jain claims to have written this book, on his deceased head be it. In two previous Jain books, we have seen Jain blending his original source with additional materials. Aside from north/south Indian solar charts shown in the book, there seems to be little additional material in Astrology & Marriage Counselling.
