Explanation of points is further elucidated through several sample charts related both to people and to events.
Once you have a glimpse into your own chart, you can look at different remendial measures such as using mantras, fire rituals (yagyas), prayers to appropriate aspect of Divine, engaging in selfless service, and generally living as a spiritually conscious being.
This book is written in a simple language and is entertaining to read. There is also a lot of good, common-sense advice and Linda has managed to put astrology in a proper perspective, as a tool that helps the individual to navigate successfully through life. The idea is to make the most with your talents and well, if you find it's going to rain, you prepare yourself and get an umbrella before you go out, instead of bemoaning your destiny. There's always something you can do to live fulfilling life and about half of this book is dedicated to taking constructive action.
Once you're done going through this book, then you can move on to reading more complex and detailed books on vedic astrology. This book will help to ease you into vedic astrology.
If you are having difficulty with creating your own chart manually and would like to have a computerized version to test the waters of Vedic Astrology by exploring your own chart, you can contact me and I will email you your own chart, so you can have fun and discover if you'd like to continue learning more about Vedic Astrology. I love to help people who have passion for learning new things.
This book won't serve as a stand-alone if you want the actual mechanics of chart interpretation (Bloomfield wins on that score) but I highly recommend it for the mythological and historic background material which is essential to a deeper understanding for Westerners. Also, Johnsen's writing style is so clear it will save you hours of trying to understand other writers who explain the same topics, but not as clearly. I found A Thousand Suns at my local library. I don't know why it never came-up in the Amazon search engine? I wish it had so that I might have read it sooner!
