Two Astrologers, in different parts of the world and working
independently of each other, judged May 10, 1940, to be a good day to start
something. A German astrologer advised Hitler to attack France on that date,
and the author of Astrology for the Millions advised his publishers that it
was a good day to publish. We would rather not carry the analogy to its logical
conclusion, because we think Hitler's aggression is bound to disappear from
the face of the earth before long, and we do not wish to predict the same
fate for Astrology for the Millions. But, as a matter of fact, at about the
same time that Hitler decided to carry the war to more people through his
attack on Russia, we were in the process of making up our minds to bring Astrology
for the Millions to more people by launching it in this lower-priced edition.
Actually, it does not appear that Astrology for the Millions
is going to disappear from the face of the earth. It has defmitely started
something. For it is the first book to enable readers to investigate astrology
for themselves, to watch the year-by-year workings of the planets in their own
lives, and to see with their own eyes how and under what circumstances they
respond to planetary influences. As such, it has had a wide acceptance ... so wide,
in fact, that its system of prediction by transits, or projection, is working
its way into the accepted language and practice of astrology everywhere.
The author has been investigating the force of transits for
about fourteen years-one half of a Saturn cycle, if you think of things that
way. His first tentative findings were published in Horoscope Magazine in 1936
under the pen name of Michael Bogan, in a series of brief articles entitled
;You and Today's Planets.; In a later series, ;Why I Believe in
Astrology,; in Horoscope during 1938 and 1939, the principles were further
elucidated, especially in one article published in February 1939 entitled
;The Transits That Made Hitler.; The . evolution of the rules
governing transits has been a long process. It is not ended yet, though in
increasing numbers students and professional astrologers write that its
results, in explaining the past and enlightening the future, are opening new
vistas to them. Even some of those who adhere to the less modem and (I believe)
less accurate and helpful ;progress- ions; are beginning to
investigate transits and to add their findings to those already in existence.
The study of transits is in its infancy. the basis for it is
here. On this basis there is slowly being erected a structure of accurate chart
interpretation and prediction which will, in the end, obey rules as rigid,
certain, and dependable as those of medicine, mathematics, and astronomy
itself. The information in this book gives deep insight into the laws of the planets
and the way in which they govern life. This has become increasingly clear in
the eighteen months which have elapsed since this book was first published,
through letters I have received from readers. Their contribution to further
study is tremendous, and with the book now going to new readers, I look forward
to additional correspondence and through it to greater illumination of the
mysteries that we seek to pierce.
Since primitive age the humans have been curious to know
their future. Whether the future can be known? If yes, then through which
medium? Many scholars opine that future can be known through Astrology.
Astrology is the study of the movements and relative position of celestial
bodies interpreted as having an influence on human affairs and the natural
Astrology is made of two words-Astral plus logy (logic).
Astral (light) means 'Sanskara' (italics) and logic means capacity to know the
Sanskara. In Hindi language we can explain Jyoti + Sh. who knows astrology is
known as Astrologer.
According to some other learned persons, the knowledge of
prediction of sun etc. planets, astral and celestial is called Astrology.
According to Rishi Varah Mihir the body cycle is the orbit ofthe planets.
Forehead, mouth, chest, heart, stomach, belly, hips, organ, thigh, knee, legs
and feets are twelve parts of human body which are respectively represented by
the twelve Zodic Signs-Aries, Tourus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra,
Scorpio, Sagittarius, Copricorn, Aquarius and Pices. Amongst planets Soul-Sun,
Innerself-Moon, Patience- Mars, Speech-Mercury, Discretion-Jupiter, Semen-Venus
and Sensitivity-Saturn are the significators. The solar-cycle is a human body
functions like the solar--system. The planets have their influence on humans
positively or negatively according to the actions of humans. The nature of the
influence is what circumstance shall be effective is foretold by Astrology. Not
only of the human beings but the fate of even other animals, living beings and
plants, trees etc. can be known through Astrology.
Chiero, John Dicson, Dr. Jule Burn, Prof. Harrar, G.
Begiloton, Peter Harcous, Nasturdamus, Smt. Jean Dicson are some of the great
astrologers, whose many a predictions have been proved to be correct. Amongst
other famous foresighters the names of Romea Rolla, Annea Beasant, Vivekanand
and Shri Aribindo are well known.
During the freedom struggle of Indians against Britishers,
the Cheiro forecasted that the planet sun is strongly favourable for Indians as
the same is in Acquarius sign. The emergence of India cannot be stalled by any
force. Cheiro also foredicted that England would liberate the India but due to
religious quarrels there shall certainly be partition of India.
An astrologer's forediciton can be true only if the
astrologer has adequate knowledge of the movements of planets and
constellations and he possesser the scientific knowledge of time and its
analysis. The knowledge of houses of planets, the distances between different
planets, the positions and change of positions of planets, the influence of one
planet on the other planets, signs and their lords are essential for a
Some astrologers make predictions on the basis of numerology
and palmistry. It is said that the lines and signs on a palm gives the complete
description of human beings. For example the unsymetricalline as crosses are
formed before the six months of death on the nail of middle fmgure.
In fact from the various symptoms of parts of body 811 can
know about the diseases, death etc., but knowin correctly the details of other
incidents of life is not scien fically possible. Because astrology makes this
possible hence it can be called as a science.
Grant Lewi in the present book has raised so questions
pertaining to astrology and has also given sui solutions. Along with this he
has minutely visualised astrological principles of foredictions and has attemp
say astrology as a cosmic science.
According to Indian mythology, there may be other worlds in
the universe. All events first occur in the supreme minute world and thereafter
they reoccur in similar manner in our present physical world. Through different
processes such events occur in peculiar forms in the super minute worlds.Such
visualisers can only be the true forecasters, who can be called the minute
visualisers Mahatma Buddha, Mahavira Swami, Mahatma Valmiki, Mahatma Vyas,
Varah Mihir, Rishi Bhragu etc. were such minute visualisers of the events and
occurances in the supreme minute worlds.
When this book was being written, before Christmas 1939, it
was decided to illustrate the predictive method set forth by examples from the
lives of important world figures. By seeing how known influences had accounted
for known events, the reader could- be helped in judging how similar conditions
might be expected to influence his own life. Andit seemed no more than right to
carry this method to its logical conclusion. If we could explain so well what
had happened, we might justly be expected to forecast what was going to happen.
We therefore rejected the advice of lames Russell Lowell's grandmother:
;Don't ever prophesy-unless you know,; and ventured into prophecy.
The results have been both good and bad. We have some hits, some misses.
When this second edition was planned we discussed what
should be done about these matters. We eventually decided to reprint the book
exactly as it was originally written. omitting nothing, changing nothing,
merely adding some explanatory , notes and the foreword. If we wanted to claim
credit for our hits (as-we did) it did not seem right to evade responsibility
for our misses.
Another reason-a very simple one-weighed heavily in our
decision to let everything stand. The method of chart analysis and prediction
(or as it is more properly called, projection), set forth here for the first
time, is sound. The basic theory works in practice, as you will discover when
you apply it to your own life. It is not our predictive hits that make it work,
though they do help demonstrate its soundness. And, by the same token, the
misses do not condemn the system in the eyes of any right-thinking person who
tests it in his own life and who understands that this book representsa wholly
new combination of old truths, a combination which Astrology for the Millions
presents to the world for the first time. It is a system rapidly being accepted
by astrologers and laymen alike; and with increasing numbers of people
investigating it and adding data to it, new truth will emerge from a study of
its initial errors perhaps even more than from triumph over its initial hits.
For this reason the errors must be preserved, for knowing where and how errors
were made in the beginning cannot fail to help those who are adding each day to
its perfection. To know what interpretation is wrong eliminates at least one
possibility in the search for the right one.
Therefore, this second edition carries everything that was
in the first, plus these notes. Some of them are boasts. And some are an effort
to elucidate error in such a way as to simplify the search for truth in the
