Some astrologers from India used the two stares in the tail of what we know call scorpio constellation as markers for the nakshatras, basically putting them at 0 mula. 

However, its no more better than any other ayanamsa, meaning, its not sound. So its just talking about yet another ayanamsa what was used in India amongst several others.

That translation is absolutely horrendous. I would not recommend reading it at all. It will create many errors and there is no Sanskrit. I do not recommend ANYONE's translation. Only the Sanskrit. If you cant read Sanskrit, dont touch it. you will just learn wrong. If you can read Sanskrit, only touch it if you want to risk getting sucked into a vortex of inner puzzling that will make you unable to function as a normal human being.

@ernst I love what he says in the commentary about how Jupiter was said to be first observed in conjunction with the star pushya/tishya. 

And we know how that relates to brihaspati. I also read in the Ramayana how Tishya was the celestial archer, so it sounds a lot like Sagittarius or Jupiter. And I wonder if in those days Tishya was falling in the same zodiacal space as Sagittarius?

I also love how he explains the tara and how the planets influences were not overtly explained in the vedanga jyotisha, but they could still be inferred from the suggestions of say tuesday being related to acts of aggression, etc.

This guy really knew a lot, I am really enjoying this commentary 🙂

Yes, start with Vedanta, it will create the sanity base you need for Jaimini.
