COMBINATIONS OF POWER (RAHU AND KETU)

In Vedic astrology the lunar nodes known as Rahu and Ketu have special powers in a chart. They are referred to as our karmic destiny. They will indicate our greatest gifts and our darkest issues. In prediction they are where the eclipses fall and indicate the areas of our life that involve the most transformation for that year.
When the lunar nodes are combined with another planet they will take on the quality of that planet. They are like mirrors magnifying the energy of that planet. In this class we will see the power combinations of the nodes conjunct the planets in natal charts. Each combination will produce amazing but very different results. Using many chart examples of famous individuals we see the effects of the many combinations of an individual planet with Rahu or Ketu. You will view these combinations of power as a focal point in your readings.

The Karmic Code: Introduction to Jyotish, Karmic Theory and the Vedic Planetary Archetypes

During this lecture, we will examine the origins of Jyotish as well as the similarities and differences with classical and modern tropical astrology. We will discuss the four levels of karmic theory and how it reflects our soul's karmic code or dharma for this incarnation. The philosophy of Jyotish involves an intricate understanding of reincarnation theory as reflected through the karmic DNA blueprint revealed by the Vedic natal chart.

How to Read the Vedic chart

In this class you will learn how planets give their results dependant on the houses they rule and aspect (drishti). Planets carry the meanings of the houses they rule. This determines whether they give a benefic or malefic influence as they cast their aspects to houses and other planets. Saturn can give blessings while Jupiter can bring suffering. You will understand planets, aspects and fine tune your analysis to give specific profound details.

Moon Yogas

The Moon refers to the capacity to receive, feel and integrate. It shows the fertile ground of impressions that compel us to act. Planets associating with Moon show the nature of our psychology and form the main support structures of our identity. This "Moon Yogas" technique works regardless of zodiac or system, as it refers to planets in real space.

Forecasting with the Vedic Dasha System (Planetary Periods)

The Vimshottari Dasha system developed by the great sage, Parashara is a comprehensive forecasting technique of that reveals the developmental life cycle unfoldment throughout one’s incarnation. Dasha means a “stage or condition in life.” The nine Vedic planetary periods are very helpful in understanding the seasons of our life and planning long term goals. This dynamic assessment technique estimates when positive potentials as well as developmental challenges may occur. The dashas are indicators of when certain karmas have matured or ripened. During this lecture, we will explore the life events and planetary periods of Albert Einstein as reflected through the ancient dasha system of Vedic Astrology.

"Navamsa"

One of the most useful features of Hindu astrology are the divisional (harmonic, or varga) charts. These allow the astrologer to focus more specifically on various areas like relatioships, career, children, real estate, and so forth. The most important divisional chart is the Navamsa, or ninth harmonic chart. Learn some interesting things about this chart, and have a brief introduction to some of the other divisional charts as well.

(VEDIC ASTROLOGY)
ARROWS OF EMPHASIS: SCORING A BULL'S EYE IN CHART INTERPRETATION

Many students of Jyotisha find themselves drowning in a sea of detail and need the lifeline of how to prioritize to effectively navigate the waters. This one day seminar explores various techniques that will allow you to get to that “sweet spot” around which you can organize a meaningful session. Students should have some background in the basics of Jyotisha – chart “geography”, grahas, bhavas, rashis and aspects.
