Lajjitaadi Avashtas Vedic Astrology Audio Course: Learn the Most Important Planetary Combinations to Understand Your Life and the Lives of Others

Includes all mp3 tracks listed below (Over 8 Hours of Recordings), .pdf’s of all charts discussed in the course and course handout.

There are specific planetary combinations called Lajiitaadi Avashtas that explain the state of our planets. They explain the real reasons why Saturn can be so difficult! Not because of his innate cruelty, but because he has so many enemies! Saturn on his own, is great for focus, determination, hard work, the strength of your immune system and detachment, but get him mixed up with the Moon, Mars or the Sun, and you get different grades and reasons for frustrations, sorrow, illness and delay. Based on where these combinations are placed in your birth chart, can show where the most difficulties in your life are and why.

Or maybe we think Jupiter and Mercury and Venus should all get along nicely, since they are all considered gentle or benefic planets. Yet, when we look at the time period when these planets get together, we get broken expectations or are misled by false knowledge. This is not what we would think with such nice planets interacting, yet, it is true because Venus and Mercury (the micromanager and decision maker) starve Jupiter of his ability to see the bigger picture. Grace and faith are traded for the minute details!

Or maybe we have Saturn influencing our Venus. Why would this make a person a better life partner and spouse? Surely Venus would suffer at the hands of Saturn. This is not the case, because Saturn and Venus are friends. Saturn supports Venus, and gives Venus a realistic approach and understanding to love. This can contribute to longer term happiness in our life in general. (If you haven’t already, you can listen to more about this combination by clicking here: Venus in Capricorn.)

The Lajjitaadi Avashtas are planet specific. If you have your birth chart (which I can give you if you don’t), you can learn how to simply see what planets are conjunct or aspecting each other, and then we can analyze the Avashtas. Will your planets (and therefore those areas of your life represented by the planets) be:

1) Ashamed by their Enemies or Rahu and Ketu
2) Starved
3) Delighted
4) Proud
5) Agitated by being too close to the Sun

Then, you know why your experiences and those around you are the way they are, and you can deal with them appropriately.

This rarely used aspect of Jyotish has proven to be extremely accurate in understanding a person’s chart and explaining those areas that weren’t evident otherwise.

  1. Does your relationship flow in such a way that there is room for both of you to feel loved and respected?
  2. Are you naturally attuned to each other or are you on a different wavelength?
  3. Will destiny obstruct your relationship making it impossible for you to be completely together, or will any present obstacles in the way of your full commitment to each other go away in time?
  4. Does your relationship attract endless troubles and difficulties, or will it settle down and allow you to build a productive life together?
  5. Are you both equally assertive so that you can have a true partnership without one person dominating the relationship?

And the bottom line – will your relationship flow in such a way that you both become better, happier people and more loving?

The Relationship Timing Report uses Vedic Astrology principles to show the dates of all the relationship centered days for you to look forward to for a five year period. Days of love and affection, marriage and commitment, co-creation (mutual productivity, children, etc.) and “soul mate” days of deep bonding are all shown. The report also indicates which of these days will be the important life changing days and which will just be nice relationship centered days, but not life changing days. The report does not time days of quarrelling, breaking up, divorce and other such tragedies – life is hard enough without having a time table of horrible days to look towards, so we decided not to add those days into the report. If you have one of those days, just look for the next favorable love day to come along in your Relationship Timing report, during which you will be able to improve your relationship in some way.

This report is a 5 year long list of relationship events and their dates.

Price $14.95


The Financial Timing Report uses Vedic Astrology principles to show the dates of all the financially beneficial days for you to look forward to for a five year period. Days of extra income, financially fortunate days and the days of setting the foundation for financial success are all shown. The report indicates which of these days will be the important life changing days during which long term financial benefits will begin as well as minor financially beneficial days that just give a little extra here and there. The report does not time days of financial loss or disaster – life is hard enough without having a time table of horrible days to look towards, so we decided to not put those days into the report. If you have one of those days, just look for the next favorable financial day to come along in your Financial Timing report, during which you will be able to improve your finances in some way.

This report is a 5 year long list of financial events and their dates.

The “Looking forward to It” calendar uses Vedic Astrology principles to show the dates of the most important events to happen to you during the year. As the name of the calendar reveals, these are all desirable dates during which fulfilling activities will happen – they are indeed the days you can look forward too. The “Looking forward to It” Calendar focuses on fourteen different types of events. Why fourteen? While there are so many events that can be predicted with Vedic Astrology, a calendar can simply not fit them all, so we had to choose the most important type of events, events that lead towards a fulfilling life. Vedic Astrology uses not just one chart to examine your life, but several, with each chart dealing with one area of life. The “Looking forward to It” calendar analyzes each of the most important areas of life for each of these charts, and that leaves us with 14 types of events, the events that are most important to fulfill in order for you to have a happy and fulfilling life. Events covered are love, marriage, financial fortune, health, the doing of great things, unexpected days of good fate, knowledge, days of benefiting from your unique strengths and talents, emotional fulfillment, days where you shine, important days of associating with others, financial wellbeing, productive times with your partner including children, days where you have the freedom to make the changes in your life that you desire.

This report is a 1 year long calendar that begins on the month and year of your choosing. The calendar format of this report makes it very easy to see and look forward to the favorable events that are astrologically planned for you during the year.

Datefinder: One of the most advantageous uses of astrology is in finding auspicious moments to begin an event. (This is known as Muhurta in India and as Electional Astrology in the West.) Remember buying a computer, car, house or some other expensive item and having nothing but problems with it? When problems such as these occur, it is likely that they were started at astrologically unfavorable moments. Starting these and other important activities during astrologically favorable moments can smooth out the road to success with whatever you start in life, be it a relationship, marriage, a job or even feeding your child for the first time.

Jennifer Hartwig, Milano, Italy

‘When you consult an astrologer about your life path at the age of 64 as I did, you have a long path behind you and can verify whether the insights and recommendations of the astrologer make sense. Michael Reed was spot on. I actually had already done some things that he recommended with very good results. He has given me the confidence to change my life at this age and now I am happily planning for the future. He is an example of how astrology can really help people.’

T.J.B., California, United States

‘I just received and watched the reading today. Thank you so much! You hit everything spot on for me and have given me fresh inspiration and confirmation on my goals. I really enjoyed listening to it and you answered all my questions in a very grounded, holistic way that I really resonate with. I really like the pre-recorded video method that you do because it lets you lay everything out from start to finished without getting off track. But I would love have a conversation with you at some point also, if time permits.’

Jennifer Hartwig, Milano, Italy

‘Most astrology courses offer material that can be found in textbooks. The added value is that the teacher connects the dots. Michael Reed’s courses are different. He offers material that is not available anywhere – because it is the result of years of personal experience. He then makes his students attempt to connect the dots on their own, ensuring that they understand the reasoning behind the connections. And when you think you have understood, then he comes out with another angle to it, because, as he modestly says, teachers are not always automatically right: there is no absolute right and wrong. He wants his students to try many techniques and make up their own mind as to what is best. These are courses for the serious student who is really willing to invest time and effort in learning astrology – and reap the rewards in terms of astrological wisdom.’

Mrs P.K. Panglea, United Kingdom

‘Michael Reed is very knowledgeable and a master at astrology. His reading was thoroughly researched and deeply informative. I would highly recommend him to friends and family.
Michael had a gentle manner of giving me the difficult truth that I needed to hear. I appreciated his “no fluff” approach and telling it like it is! The information he provided was very much appreciated and invaluable.
I am grateful to have found a brilliantly skilled astrologer.’

Lori S., San Francisco Bay Area, USA

’I forgot to mention when we spoke how accurate your reading for me was in December. Back then you mentioned that something would occur on January 1 specific to my consulting business. At the time I heard this, its not that I doubted you, but I thought it would be unlikely I would hear something on January 1st, mainly because it is a holiday. But sure enough, I did find myself speaking with a new client on that exact day, when he officially offered me a short term project! Just thought you’d like to know…have a great day!’


S.M., Los Angeles, California, USA

’Hi Michael! Just thought I share with you that my car keys were found in the trunk of my sister’s car on the 16th of February. The reading says I’ll find it by the 20th.’


S.T., Canada

‘Thank you, you are such a gifted astrologer and i will definitely work with you again!’

C.L., San Francisco Bay Area, USA

’Thank you so much for the consultation. I truly appreciate your counseling and insight and in helping me to recognize through Vedic Astrology what is going on in my life. My session with you was quite therapeutic and I felt safe in sharing some very deeply painful childhood experiences. Your counseling and healing sessions gave me the strength to finally face these difficulties, and to seek help to eradicate the hurt and pain and searching all these years.’


K.J., India

’Thank you for yesterday. You seemed almost like an oracle. Thank you for giving me some new keys to fit into my old issues.’



’Just wanted to reach out to say thank you for your time and the reading. It helped me to understand myself better. I am trying to address my feelings much more positively. I was mad at my brother over the weekend and for the first time I could handle my anger better by informing him clearly what bothered me and what has hurt me. There was no emotional drama just simple discussion and at the end I felt very peaceful. I have started meditating too which is helping. I am looking forward to the copy of the video file and the mantras you think would help me address my emotions better.’


M.M., Cork, Ireland

’Talking to you yesterday was in itself like a healing process :) I really appreciate the time you gave me .. I will stay in touch with you.. if ever I feel the need for guidance. I was very satisfied with your analysis. I will pass on your astrological service details to my friends as well, in case they feel the need to have some direction in their life :)
Also I wanted to tell you that, I spoke to my Mom day before yesterday regarding my horoscope reading done by you.. and even she felt that I sounded very calm and composed after talking to you.. I was very restless before and was blaming myself for not being able to settle.. its miraculous that I had a horoscope reading. May be it was God’s way of telling me that I need to be at peace and accept myself and right things will happen at the right time. So, I really thank you for being that divine voice and conveying the message! Thank you once again!’


Kia, London

You perform fine art; it should be hung in galleries all over the world.’


B.A, Wisconsin

I wanted to let you know this couldn’t have been more accurate if you were one of my best friends & knew all about my every day.’


Bridgett, Wisconsin

‘I wanted to tell you this was so right on and helped me see that I am not failing in this frustrating time but in the lesson. This helped me feel less angry with myself and the way things sit in my life. This short report brought me some peace of mind and came right on time. I will surely be setting up a consultation soon. Thank you.’


Derek, Utah

Thank You so much. That was enormously helpful. Probably the best astrology reading I’ve had. Very much appreciated.’


Cory, California

I appreciated the way that the consultation was approached as a very human interaction in which it was very apparent that we were both going to get the most out of having a discussion around the different things that came up in the reading. The fact that it was approached in such a way made the reading feel much more comfortable, and I am sure that I was able to get a lot more worthwhile information because of the organic and intuitive way in which I was approached. This was my first introduction to astrology of any kind and it definitely opened my mind to a lot of different things about myself and how I relate to the world I live in. This experience has proven to be very positive for me and I am glad I was introduced to astrology through this particular source. I will definitely consider consulting through this site again for different perspectives and fresh ideas.’


D.S., Suburbs of New York City

’Michael Reed is good at what he does – he listens with an intent mind and offers feedback without trying to impose a belief system on you.

Notably, I experienced several deeply relaxed states in the days following my second session with Michael.’


D.S. Seoul, South Korea

My sense from reading your essays on your site is that if any astrologers can be really honest, sincere and forthcoming, …. it would be you.’
