Dictionary of Astrology

J.N. Bhasin (Author)

Looks harder to use than it is, because it has a dual function: Explain all those strange words to Westerners & give Sanskrit translations for native Hindu readers of western texts. The 1st section is alphabetical, from pgs 11 to 110 (inclusive): Vedic terms (in English characters) are given English translations, and Vedic terms (in English characters) are shown in Sanskrit characters. Most, but not all, also have English translations. The second section starts with a page of abbreviations, most of no great importance. Then we have age of planets, anatomy of the human body (English to Sanskrit), formulas for Arabic parts, Western aspects defined, a list of classic Vedic astrologers & their works, various branches of astrology (more than in western texts). There follows another alphabetical dictionary of terms, these with longer definitions (some definitions in Sanskrit only). Due to typeface & layout, this section of 51 pages is confusing. The third section has planetary yogas & rules for matching charts (boy-girl). The fourth section is tables. The first gives hours to GMT for various major countries, some of which are wrong. Then, a table to find sidereal time for 83.30 degrees east (the meridian for Indian Standard Time, IST), Ayanamsa correction, 1950-2051, Table of subs according to Krishnamurti Padhdhati, Dasa & bhukti periods, approximate retrograde periods of planets. This is not the easiest book to use, but there is a lot here.
