The Myth and Magick of Vedic Astrology

COURSE PRICE: $62 - PURCHASE HERE

In Depth Understanding About the Origins of Planetary Energies Helps Us to Conceptualize Astrological Influences.

Gain a Proper Grasp of the Planets through Their Mythic Origins in this 13 Hour MP3 Downloadable Astrology Course

As astrologers we are always identifying and assessing the strengths and combinations of planetary energies.  Knowing how each planetary ray shapes our bodies, minds and life experiences is essential to properly understanding the birth chart, how karma will unfold and how to work within our circumstances for greater Self-knowledge and spiritual freedom.

This 13 hour course focuses on the mythological stories of the planets.  We explore the many indications of each planet, both within the horoscope and the appropriate vargas. We will learn and practice the mantras for each planet and also methods of contemplation for direct insights into planetary rays, the conscious force of the planets within.  The mantras and contemplative methods are based on the successful direct experiences I have had over the years.  It has been these direct experiences that have been the most valuable aspect of my studies into astrology.

It is my goal that within this course, you will learn very intimately what the planets do within our lives and consciousness.  We will learn the concrete things a planet produces and also the innate qualities a planet imparts to those areas of life it influences.  Ideally, you will also learn how to recognize how a planet may be functioning within a person by simply talking with them or hearing about their life experience. By practice of mantra and contemplation, you will learn to work with the planets for your self-development and also learn how to recognize and advise proper remedial measures for your clients. This is the true Magick of astrology.

The mythological stories within Vedic Astrology anthropomorphize the planets so that we may better comprehend how those cosmic energies work and interact within our psyche. Direct insights into what the planets produce within our lives and how they will produce those things deepens through contemplation on the ancient astrological stories and mythological beliefs.  This is invaluable to proper assessment of astrological principles.

Through properly practiced mantra and contemplation the planets awaken and become conscious within our awareness. No longer do we need to look to books for understanding, we can learn to directly commune with those awakened energies. This takes time, commitment and study, but it is my feeling that only through a strong discipline to fully awaken the planets within us can we begin to be true astrologers.

This is not a technique oriented class.  It is applicable to beginners and seasoned astrologers.  Ideally, you will learn to assess a person’s planetary situation without even looking at a chart.  However, to be realistic, this class is meant to be the beginning of your studies into actual astrological technique.

 

Introduction to Prasna Astrology Video Course

COURSE PRICE: $28.95 - PURCHASE HERE

Introduction to the Practice of Prasna Astrology – The Vedic Horary Astrology of Omens

What would be the result of this action?

Prasna is an excellent tool to answer our pressing questions in life. Not everyone needs a full astrological birth chart reading. Sometimes we just have one or two burning questions that need answered to help us deal with a situation or gauge if this is the right time or not to take action.  By constructing an astrological chart for the moment a question is asked, gives us insights into the results of taking a certain action. This is the most accurate form of astrology in our current age, because it does not require a client to have an accurate birth time, or even a birth chart at all (although that can be helpful).

 This course contains nearly 8 hours of video, using example charts and student interaction to delineate and explain the proper approach to begin practicing Prasna Astrology.

The practice of prashna (or horary astrology as it is known as in the West) implies that there is an intimate link between human consciousness and a greater universal consciousness and that all things are a manifestation of consciousness. It is a most worthwhile subject to study because it can be used to answer important questions regarding the immediate consequences of actions affecting our everyday life.

The prashna chart is calculated for a specific query at a given time and place, and is particularly useful for those people who do not possess accurate information regarding their time of birth. The essential condition for using this form of astrology is that the querent (the person asking the question) approaches an astrologer when he or she feels impelled to seek astrological help for a specific query. As in natal astrology a complete chart is erected, only this is calculated for the time of query rather than for the time of birth.  By this “chart of the moment” we can interpret the accurate answer to the question.

In this class, we will learn the basic principles to begin answering questions using Prasna.

Navamsa & Dasamsa Astrology Divisional Charts Audio Course

COURSE PRICE: $42 - PURCHASE HERE

Learn How to Read the Divisional Charts of Marriage, Purpose, Status and Career

The Divisional Charts Give Details About our Life Path and How Events Will Unfold.

The Varga Charts (or divisional charts) explain the real reasons why our life unfolds the way it does, in certain areas and at certain times.  It shows specifically how each area of our lives will be affected in regards to the changing Dashas or time cycles.

This is why you can go into a bad period as indicated by the birth chart, say a debilitated Mercury cycle, yet many areas of your life thrive.  This is because Mercury is not debilitated in all of the 15 other important divisional charts.  In some, he may even be exalted.  Each of the vargas represents a particular area of life.

Similarly, if an extremely good period is predicted because you are in a cycle of an exalted Moon in the birth chart, yet certain areas of your life fail, it is due to the varga placements of the Moon.  In other vargas, like the Navamsha (committed relationship and purpose), the Dasamsa (career and status), or the Trimsamsha (the chart for health tendencies) the Moon may be under serious stress.  When this occurs, those parts of the life will have strain during the particular dasha.

To appreciate all of these possibilities we at least need to know how to assess the vargas on a basic level.  The goal of this class is to gain an understanding of each house in relation to the chart of career and status (the Dasamsha), and also the chart of committed relationships and dharma (the Navamsha).  We will also explore the role of each planet as it functions within these divisional charts.  This will give us a good foundation for properly assessing the areas of status and purpose within the horoscope and how those can play out over time.

While we will focus primarily on the Navamsha and Dasamsha.  We will also touch upon the influence of the Lajjitaadi Avashtas within the vargas.  However, it is important to have taken the Introduction to Lajjitaadi Avashtas Audio Course beforehand.
