Shruti is a Taurus sun sign.   Astrology has interested me due to it's wide breadth of applications such as: mundane, weather forecasting, synstary, karmic, electional or horary and also due to the different techniques and research in the subject matter.  I look for practical application for the greater benefit of all.   It is important to me everyone has an opportunity to learn and share knowledge in a supportive environment.  I look forward to seeing you at the next meeting.   Shruti is a long time member of ASA has also served on the Board as Technician and Vice President.
