Re: Sirius on Asc
- Dear Diana,
I love reading your information on the stars on this list. You
mention a book that you wrote. I went to Amazon, but couldn't find
it. Would you mind giving the information on where to purchase your book?

publisher (it's very "fat" and publishers worry about cost
vs earnings). I'm looking into self-publishing
I do have Workbooks that I sell (one is Fixed Stars, the
other Lunar Mansions).
Since Yahoogroups doesn't accept attachments, I'll try a
NEW FIXED STAR WORKBOOK
Diana K Rosenberg
* 67 pp, 178 stars (with new interpretations) from 49 constellations, covering 103°
~more stars than any other book (Rigor has 124, Robson 110, Ebertin 73; Brady lists
176 stars, has interpretations for 64). Mundane interpretations are included
* With each star is its Constellation, Longitude, Latitude, Declination, Right Ascension,
Magnitude and Spectral Class
* A list of 104 Black Holes, with the Constellation, Longitude, Latitude and
Declination of each
* 9 pages of new Sky Maps with Constellations, Stars, with Right Ascension and
Declination lines, so that stars can be located on star maps (and in the sky!)
* Constellation spans (all constellations, including obsolete, no-longer-used figures)
NAKSHATRAS, MANZILS, HSIU
HINDU, ARABIC & CHINESE
Diana K Rosenberg
* Original determinant stars and their positions and interpretations, set in columns side by side
so that the interpretations may be compared.
* Descriptions from the most ancient and/or reliable sources, among them Al Biruni,
Varahamihira, Minaraja, Staal, Lockyer, Walters, Robson, Volguine, Roebuck
* Star maps with the original determinant stars of each mansion outlined and color-coded.
* List of 205 stars with their tropical Longitudes, Latitudes, Declinations, Right Ascensions,
Magnitudes and Spectral Classes
* List of suggested new extents and borders for Hindu mansions based on their original
determinant stars (with the conventional spans included as well, for comparison), the
determinant stars and their positions, and instructions for calculating precession correction
and sidereal (Lahiri) positions
* Valerie Roebuck's research on the original Vedic mansion rulers
* Greek letter guide

The Workbooks are $35 each, plus postage. They are not bound
but in folders.
You can read some of my articles on the website, and obtain information
about the Fixed Stars and Constellations Encyclopedia/Correspondence Course
(The website is being worked on by my son, so some links are
not working yet - if you need any more info, just e-mail me)
- Hey Diana,...
thought about maybe an e-book??
I know I try and keep most of my info on the computer
(only my files are mostly asteroids) but I have so many books,..
groan, trying to find the right one in the piles somewhere is such a
How about it? Circumvent the publishers and make all the money for yourself.
I think there's some way to make it password protected pdf or something,....
Just a thought,.. we've been renovating and I can't find a darn thing in
my books are in piles everywhere without enough bookshelves,.... we just
finally finished the kitchen,.. and you know,.. I can't seem to find my
favourite bowls,.... arrgh,... the only thing that is even close to
organized (sorta) is my computer,....Around the computer is a different
story though,.. sob,... hundreds of pieces of paper, interesting charts
which I've forgotten to put names to, disks, books, binders,... a real
I've always been blown away by your analysis of events on Steve Lee's
list,.... but up till now have been concentrating on asteroids and TNPs and
getting my own flow going,.. though the stars have been an interest,.. and
its definitely because I see you can make them work!!
For that matter I think Mark should do the same with all the work he's
put into asteroids as well.
I've got my own thing going,.. trying to see how many things I can jam into
a chart before my head explodes. I think its actually happened a few times
already,.. but I guess its a rush or something,.... hehe,...
at any rate, I'm enjoying this list,.... :-) , even though I'm at stage zero
of the learning process.
