This volume contains the horoscope created by an unnamed astrologer for the life of Louisa May Johnston Yule. This horoscope, written in English, utilizes the traditional Hindu system of astrology known as Jyotisha or Vedic astrology.

There are eleven colored hand-painted diagrams illustrating Yule's stages of life from her birth through to her death. There are three detailed charts in red and black ink.
