Comment: As the title suggests, this is a book teaching how to cast a horoscope. It is quite wordy. The author offers many explanations & reasons why he does things the way he does. The Krishnamurti system uses its own ayanamsa. For the sake of reference, that value, as of January 1, 2000, was 23 degrees, 46 minutes. It increases at a rate of 8 minutes per decade, or 83 minutes per century, or, to be absolutely precise, 50.2388475 seconds per year.
