The Beautifully Rational Philosophy of Astrology

THUMBNAIL_IMAGEI have recently published a book titled The Beautifully Rational Philosophy of Astrology. It is available as a paperback or kindle format, through my website or through

I scientifically explain the logic behind why and how prediction of the future is plausible, and elaborately reveal the beauty, rationale, and divine love at the root of destiny. In this book, I firmly establish the intellectual, scientific, and spiritual significance of Astrology, clarifying its true merit and worth, and thus establishing its ongoing relevance and validity in the modern world.

This is a new edition of a text I formerly published as “The Great Big Crystal Ball in the Sky.” I grew to dislike that title and wanted to make a few sections of the text clearer, and more complete.

I am currently working on a new book titled “Symbolic Keys of Astrology” which should be done in a few months.


“Vic DiCara helps his readers walk the mystical path with practical feet. In this book, The Beautifully Rational Philosophy of Astrology, Vic casts a light on many misunderstood or forgotten principles of astrology. Explaining that Free-will creates destiny, Vic echoes the master, Yogananda. And he echoes the revered Dr. BV Raman by explaining that happiness is the prime goal of life, and a good astrologer must leave the client with a wiser hope to attain it. His practical advice on ‘fortune-tellers,’ the relationship between astrologer and the client, and the importance of staying in the now during readings all really resonate with my own approach to astrological counseling. I consider this a most valuable book for astrologers and clients alike.”

“The title of this book is totally apt – Vic DiCara has written a beautifully rational book about astrology. It is a delight to read, and it answers a lot of the questions we might have always wanted to ask, along with some questions we may not have even thought of before. It is a great and worthy contribution to the Work of Astrology.”

“Vic DiCara (Vraja Kishor) has done it again, this time by focusing on the science of astrology. In this wonderfully readable book, he makes his apparently dodgy subject accessible and approachable, connecting it to all facets of Vedic wisdom, and in turn allowing his readers to see its original context and purpose. The net result is that he successfully takes astrology out of its usual hiding places — the disrepute of charlatans and the doubt of skeptics — and situates it squarely where it belongs: among the respected sciences of the ancient world. In other words, this is a book that will revolutionize your view of this much maligned system of knowledge. In fact, I dare you to read it!”
