Interpreting the Nakshatras Through Vedic Astrology – 14 Hour Audio/Video Course

The Nakshatras and Nakshatra Techniques for Interpretation Through Vedic Astrology – 14 Hour Audio/Video Course

nakshatramageThe Nakshatras of Vedic Astrology are an exceptionally powerful tool for exploring some of the finer subtleties of an astrological chart. In Vedic Mythology, the wives of a particular deity carry the power, or Shakti, of that deity. The Nakshatras are said to be the wives of the Moon. What is the Moon’s power? The Moon is related to Manas, our sensory mind. It is with our senses that we have the capacity to grow our Consciousness. So, the Moon is responsible for our consciousness. And as the Nakshatras are the wives of the Moon, it is a Nakshatra which is responsible for growing the consciousness of the particular Graha which occupies it and everything to which that Graha is related.

So what are the Nakshatras exactly? They are the original constellations. Knowledge of the Nakshatras dates back to as long ago as 1900 BC with early writings in the Rig Veda. In Vedic Astrology, they are seen as 27 sections of the sky that are each 13 degrees and 20 minutes in size. They can perhaps best be understood as sub-sections of a Rasi, or Sign. But, they are far beyond that. They represent that which the Universe is asking us to learn through a particular planet, so that we can grow through our experience of Consciousness.

In terms of the astrologer’s toolbox, the Nakshatras are an excellent resource from both a predictive and a therapeutic level. For example; the symbolism of a particular Nakshatra will often become concretely present when that particular Nakshatra is highlighted. During a period highlighted by Bharani Nakshatra for example, an individual may desire to transition their life into a new phase as Bharani is related to Yama, the God of Death who is responsible for ushering souls into their next life. When a career factor is in Mula Nakshatra, symbolised by roots tied together, the individual may perhaps pursue a career in medicine when Mula is highlighted.

From the therapeutic perspective, the Nakshatras will show us what an individual is experiencing subjectively during a particular phase of their existence. Additionally, we can see if they are having an easy time integrating this or if they are having extreme difficulty and offer them advice based upon the influencing Nakshatra.

The Nakshatras are an exceptionally vast tool. Although there is much information in regards to using the Nakshatras in Elective Astrology for choosing an auspicious date for an event, there is scarce information in terms of how to work with them in terms of Chart Interpretation. The goal of this course is to provide with the necessary tools with which to do so.

This course is taught by Michael Reed and Ryan Kurczak. The techniques taught here will not only help you to understand the finer aspects of a chart through the Nakshatras, but also foster a deeper level of Self-Knowledge through examining your own chart. Over the duration of the course, Michael and Ryan will share with you:

  • An Introduction to the Nakshatras
  • An Exploration of Each Nakshatra with Symbolism including Deities, Mythological Stories, Primary Motivation, plus much more
  • Techniques for interpreting the Nakshatras in a chart including the following:
  • Following a chain of Nakshatra Lords in order to understand a chart more deeply
  • How to work with Planetary Dignity to interpret the effects of a particular Nakshatra through both the Occupying Planet’s Dignity as well as the Dignity of the Nakshatra Lord
  • Tara Bala (Star Strength) – A system of interpretation working with the distance between Nakshatras
  • Using Vimshottari Dasa to see when a particular Nakshatra will be influencing
  • Understanding House Cusp Lords and Karakas through the Nakshatras
  • Plus More

‘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.’

‘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.’
