How do I get the most out of the Time Planner?
Introduction - "How is it built, and how does it work?"
The first thing to say about understanding how the Time Planner works is that it is a tool that simplifies for the non-astrologer the numerous astrological factors that the astrologer analyses to understand the "time quality" of any given moment. This means that in making the product we had to make design choices, which simplifies the information as much as possible, without loosing any of the important elements of astrological analysis. In short we didn't want to "dumb it down" too much, but also we didn't want to make it too complicated for the average person. In retrospect I think its fair to say that we have given the average person a tool that is both easy to use, but very rich in content and features, so much so that the Time Planner is in fact a powerful tool for understanding time quality and for studying Vedic Panchang astrology.
Astrological analysis is a complex art, one that is best done in a modular progression (i.e. in steps) that are layered or prioritised in order of strength of influence and importance. There are many rules for this laid out in the ancient Jyotish shastras (astrological scriptures), and the way we have built the Time Planner follows these rules precisely. Thus, in order to use the Time Planner in the most effective way one must follows the order of use as described in this link that takes you to Step 1.
