1. Astrologers who miss such combinations are apt to quote from the translations of classics blindly and land into wrong alleys of predictions. The classics throw light on the meaning of planetary combinations which must not be fitted into strait-laced and snap-shot astrological readings.

2. But then, is the other side also. True, some of these combinations are also evil as they cause sicknesses and accidents.

3. The important principle to remember is that planets give multiple effects, they lift, they cause a fall, they give fortunes and they throw your into deepest moods of despair. What a planet does is that is gives happiness and grief rise and fall and laughter and tears, turn by turn.

It is here that the most important element of astrological prediction comes into play through a very close study of:

1. The strength of planets, which a computer cast horoscope gives.

2. What as astrologer must do always is to see the condition of these planets in the navamsha (the one ninth division of a horoscope), which again a computer cast horoscope gives.

3. Then the dashas, major and sub-periods should be seen.

4. Finally, the transits should be examined, if possible an the sarvastaka varga, which is an extraordinary technique of quantifying the strength of transiting planets.

It is for this reason that after going through these lessons , advanced books with their techniques should be learnt properly.
