About The Book

The ST calculations incorporated in this part are slightly different from Lahiri’s Ephemeris but accurate and easy. Using these tables if we do the oral calculations even, it is found to be accurate to the great extent. If the birth time converted into local Mean Time is added in the values obtained from Table-I only, it gives accurate Sidereal Time. For the exact calculations only, it is essential to perform all the corrections. Important feature of these tables is that the year 1901 has been taken as the base year and the basis of time for the Sidereal time is taken as 12 noon. This enables us to escape from the calculation whether the birth time is before or after 12 noon, due to this it is required to calculate the difference from 12 noon and for that period no need to get the correction of sidereal time. Tenth house in astrology is degree of the ecliptic that was highest at the time and place of birth. And that is what it represents, your highest achievements and the desire to achieve heights. It is about power, prestige, social status, financial strength, achievements, recognition, respect and position. Whether you become a popular face and earn fame is also governed by 10th house. It represents the bigger picture, your ultimate career goals and the professional endeavours you make to reach there.
