Jagannatha Hora Lite | Free Astrology Software

Jagannatha Hora Lite Free Astrology Software is must for every astrologer. Why? Because making accurate and complete horoscope is an essential part of astrology. And the fact is, it takes hours, even for experts in mathematics, to make complete horoscope. It’s not possible to explain making horoscope, dasha calculations, astakvarga, and other long calculations here. There are many books from where you can learn that. Please go with them.

OR if you are weak in mathematics, like me and want to save time, you MUST consider Jagannatha Hora Lite software.

  • I understand from a friend of mine who went to cambridge university for a sponsored study on public finance told me that lot of palm leaves are taken away dring british period but they are carefully preserved by microfilming to prevent loss due to the leaves breaking. Will we be landing on a new light on astrology if new revelations come.

    • No, this astrology software is available for windows operating system only at this stage.

  • Sri Narasimha Rao
    Kindly explain to me concisely and precisely why their are considerable time difference between Surya Siddhanta and Drik siddhanta calculations. Both cannot be correct. Why did the all the ancient sages and rishis revealed in Mahabharata and Ramayana all made their calculatione according to Surya Siddhanta? Thanking you in advance.
