Astrology is the Lamp in Darkness
The true Thamaseeya Deepah !
The Lamp which illumines
The darkness of Nescience !
That which other sciences cannot discern
Is discerned by this scientia intuitiva !
Why certain medicines do not affect
Why certain diseases aggravate
Medicine should learn this
From this Queen of all Sciences !
The negative karma which afflicteth
And the solution to that negativity
Which this Lamp in Darkness advocateth
Should be done religiously !
Hence Astrology is a science
Propaedeutic to Medicine !
