Nakshatras and Their Interpretation: An Extensive Video Course on Nakshatra Techniques

0 840

Nakshatra Coin

The Nakshatras of Vedic Astrology are a resource which is sadly often neglected by many in their study of Vedic Astrology. That may be due to the fact that although there is much written on how to use them in character analysis, there is little written on how to use them practically in terms of exploring a horoscope and understanding life events.

The Nakshatras are known as the wives of the Moon, the Lord of all things Subjective, the planet responsible for our sensory mind or Manas. It is our sensory mind with which we navigate our experience of Consciousness. It defines how we relate to our experience of the Universe, how we feel, our outlook upon the world we encounter as we resolve our karma. In short, understanding the Nakshatras can help us to understand the complexity of a human incarnation. The deeper we explore them and the more we employ techniques that allow us to interpret them in a horoscope, the more empathy and therefore compassion an astrologer is able to have for his client. Additionally, they are the most profound tool that I have ever encountered for self-analysis, self-acceptance and self-development.

Nakshatras are currently undergoing a huge renaissance. As they are the connected to the original constellations behind the Zodiac, working with them gives a deeper understanding of what the individual is meant to integrate in this lifetime through the life events they experience. Everyone has been asking me when will I release my first Nakshatra Course to video. The time is now! And the list of techniques is quite extensive. This is the video taken from the Webinar Course. And in total, there is over 44 hours of video available which covers the information listed below.

‘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.’
