27 Stars, 27 Gods: The Astrological Mythology of Ancient India. Over a decade of devoted investigation! More than a year’s worth of writing and editing! Vic DiCara presents the world’s most definitive, simple, and completely awesome explanation of the mythology and meaning contained within the 27 stars of ancient Indian astrology, with the blessings and guidance of a swami, a babaji, and a Sanskrit scholar!
If you are an astrologer or a fan of astrology, Vic’s radically simple and straightforward explanations of Sanskrit, Vedic mythology, and intuitive symbolism will transform you.
If you are a devotee of India and her culture, you will adore these profound revelations and rare expositions of well-known gods such as Vishnu, lesser-known gods such as Varuna, and nearly forgotten gods such as Ajaikapat.
If you are a spiritual seeker, you will discover the origins of the universe, the meaning of life, and critical clues to the eternal search for the “fountain of youth.”
This book’s 160 pages are densely packed with precise references and footnotes to satisfy the scholars among you. The book is dripping with dramatic storytelling, is as clear and deep in philosophy as a Himalayan lake, and presents the divine stars’ astrological symbolism precisely.
~*~*~ “If Hindu astrology contains anything Vedic or spiritual, this is the book that can teach us about it. Vic takes us on a journey into the wondrous depths of Vedic wisdom as he recounts the myths associated with each of the 27 lunar mansions and their respective deities. This approach allows this book to go much deeper than other Jyotish textbooks I’ve seen. Strongly recommended, even to those who are not astrologers! Is there any hope for a follow-up book on Hindu planetary deities?” – Dieter Koch, Indologist and Archaeoastronomer “Vic DiCara’s exploration and definitive research into the lunar mansions breathes new life into the primordial zodiac through the rich symbolism and sacred stories of Indian lore. We frequently forget that the mystical mythology associated with Jyotish, the science of light, will always serve as the foundation of Vedic astrology. Mr. DiCara’s brilliant text illuminates our path back to the divine through his in-depth knowledge and the blessings of ancient India’s gods and goddesses.” Psychologist, author, and vedic astrologer Dennis M. Harness, Ph.D. “27 Gods, 27 Stars is a fantastically detailed book about Vedic astrology’s fixed stars. It is well-written and researched, and makes for an easy read! I strongly recommend it to everyone, from astrologers to yoga practitioners and everyone in between.” – Juliana Swanson, RN, ACVA Instructor, Jyotish Visharada, and Kovid More than a journey through the astrological stars’ outer universe, 27 Stars 27 Gods is a journey through the subconscious inner universe’s driving forces. By assisting us in identifying these influences, Vic DiCara enables us to gain a better understanding of ourselves and navigate our life’s journey more smoothly. 27 Stars 27 Gods can be used as a reference book by an experienced astrologer, but it can also be used as a self-improvement tool by anyone interested in delving deeper into life. It presents symbols, mythology, ancient storytelling, and divine lila in a way that piques our interest and speaks to us as a friend – never prescriptive, but always revealing our possibilities. Permit me to congratulate Vic on this one-of-a-kind book. Unlike the majority of spiritual market books, this is not a copy of a copy of a copy. It is a remarkable new contribution to our knowledge, written with an inspired pen of ferocity and wit. – Swami Sripad Sacinandana Vaishnava Guru & Sanyassi Sripad Sacinandana Swami
