    Book recommendation?

    Namasté, all. I'm writing with a difficulty for which I'm seeking remedy.

    I recently enrolled in the Jyotish correspondence course offered by the American Institute of Vedic Studies. I've completed two prior Institute classes without difficulty and anticipated no trouble with these lessons, since the course required no prior training. However, the course materials so far do seem to assume a pre-existing familiarity with astrology. (To give one example, words like "ascendant" and "opposition" are used before they have been formally defined.) Because I have very little knowledge of Jyotish, I am struggling to move forward with my lessons and hope to gain some clarity in these matters.

    Could anyone recommend a simple English-language book that introduces and explains Jyotish concepts?
    "Great are you by spiritual vigor, the wild Bull, the awesome one who wins all wealth, conquering all that is other. As the One alone you are the ruler of all the world. Send men forth for battle and for rest."
    -Ṛgveda III.46.2.

    You can try the two primers (~600 pages PDFs) that I have written on Jyotish and on dashas (timing) which are available for downloading for free. Since this is going to be your third course as mentioned by you, you should not have any difficulty in following jyotish/astrology.

    Let me know later how are things with your learning if you wish.
