A must have for any serious astrologer (even not so serious). Many texts on the planets summarizes all characteristics in a long prose style while Ernst opts to describe each characteristic in detail. This is a wonderful way to drill down into the detailed meaning of the charcteritistics. Ernst does a wonderful job of bringing greater depth into the inderstanding of each characteristic. For example what are the "gunas" and how does each planet reflect them differently? What are the "doshas" and how does each planet reflect there dosha nature differently. Every significant nature/characteristic of the planets is addressed with its own chapter for easy reference. Ernst does not simply translate the sanskrit, he puts it into present day context. He also presents the sanskrit along with his translation and notes any controversies that may exist among astrologers. By presenting the Sanskrit one is confident that the material covered is authentic and not simply a modern day convention. Svoboda and De Fouw also provide a similar style as Ernst in heir book, Light on Life, which I also recommend, but Ernst provides a more contextual approach to help the Westerner who is not so familiar with the Sanskrit terms. Also keep on mind this is a reference book and does not deal much with technique. For technique you can take Ernst's audio courses or enroll in his online video courses.
