‘Pointers to Profession : An Astrological Exposition’ is one of the most exhaustive and comprehensive works, among the books available so far, on the judgement of suitable occupation of the native. One of the important queries to an astrologer is about the profession and professional prospects of the native or his children. Absence of any authentic book, which covers all aspects of profession led to the creation of this exhaustive work related to profession, covering its every aspect, as far as possible, on the basis of authors’ research based studies for the last many decades, supported by the abstracts from all the classical works.
‘Pointers to Profession’ will certainly make the students, readers and scholars of astrology proficient in finding out the appropriate vocation of the native. Judgement of profession is indeed a tough exercise, which requires a vast experience and systematic analysis of all the house and planetary setup of the birth chart, in addition to multifaceted study of the combinations of various vocations. This is not only the 10th house is the most important house for the judgement of future prospects of profession. Planets owning and placed in the 10th house are the important significators for the right profession one is likely to go in. Similarly, the 2nd, 11th and 9th houses are of no less consequence in the examination of the occupation of the native. What roles do the navamsa, constellation and Atmakaraka planet play in deciphering the prospects of profession has been vividly explained. Whether it will be a government job or a private enterprise? The question of service or business is suitable or profitable to the native has also been explained in detail, with the help of a number of illustrations.
Secrets of the role of Saturn on one’s occupation have also been included in this work. How does Saturn’s transit help in timing the events has also been explained and illustrated. Evil effects of Saadhe Sati of Saturn and certain other specific observations about the influence of Saturn add to the usefulness of this book.
This book has been divided in 19 chapters covering almost all aspects of profession and prosperity etc. This is a unique and most useful work on the aspect of occupation.
The most significant and utilitarian part of this work is the inclusion of about 123 practical illusions with lucid analysis to show how to ferret out the precise results. Astute and discerning readers, as well as scholars and students of astrology, will undoubtedly find ‘Pointers to Profession : An Astrological Exposition’ the most informative and enlightening dissertation on the subject of profession, so far.
