An excellent, very thorough introduction to Nakshatras, the lunar mansions of Vedic astrology. The author not only describes the meaning of each Nakshatra and their influence on our natal chart. He also explains how can we use the knowledge of lunar mansions for judging relationship compatibility, as well as for estimating the optimal timing to undertake any new venture, such as starting a new business or moving to a new house. Highly recommended book.
Résumé et synthèse très interessants de la base de l'Astrologie Védique, où les 27 pas journaliers de la Lune (appelés Nakshatras) sont si essentiels dans l'astrologie indienne. C'est ce qui permet de dire lorsque la Lune (Soma ou Chandra) s'y trouve que cette constellation devient l'Etoile du 'Chakra'.
Ce livre sur les nakshatras est très détaillé et fournit une foule d'informations sur le sujet. Des clés d'interprétation sont données pour l'ascendant, la lune et le soleil selon leur position en demeure lunaire.
this book was an OK read. I expected much better though given the preface and introduction by Frawley. I however left disappointed as the info on each nakshatra was no more than 2 pages with a third page being a summary. It comes across as too simplistic and geared towards an absolute beginner with no knowledge of Hinduism or vedic astrology. Given the name and recommendations by such esteemed men in the field I though this book was going into a comprehensive account of each nakshatra with some modern elements thrown in. It merely rehashed the basics which you will find in any google search.
Dr. Harness deserves praise for this work. The majority of it is appropriate for a novice, and actually serves as a great starting point for exploring this differentiating aspect of Vedic Astrology. From helping ascertain insights into the Ascendant, Moon, and Sun in the birth chart to simply gaining awareness of how the influences of these lunar mansions can affect you day to day as you step out of your own front door. The readers attention will be held and inspired. Understanding these lunar mansions is perhaps the most essential and differentiating aspects of Vedanga Jyotish. Not to mention the added bonuses of how to use the nakshatras to to pick auspicious dates to begin new things or plan events. Also, the section on relationship compatibility is wonderful. It was a first opportunity for me to explore the kutas. My partner and I have quit a unique dynamic and this system nailed it!! It is worth noting that Dr. Harness acknowledges gay and lesbian people in his work. This is rare and appreciated. Discard the negative reviews posted with regard to this book. They are bound to pop up. Several of today's most respected Vedic Astrologers, from East and West, have referenced and even endorsed this book. Anyone curious can research the conflicting opinions about the Yugas (not even addressed in this work) and draw their own conclusions. It's a small world out there and I have found myself connected to this man through spiritual family. His light hearted, positive approach to astrology comes from a place grounded in devotion and motivated by the healing of all who seek truth, and he has dedicated his life to helping others. He is respected by peers and great teachers alike. Enjoy this read!! From here on Jyotish requires quite a bit of scholarship and natural inclination to really apprehend its wisdom. Hari Om!
