Michael Reed, Counselling AstrologerRegistration is Still Open on This Course for Those Who Wish to Join and Catch Up with the Class Recordings. Registration Will Close 8th April!

The Nakshatras of Vedic Astrology are multi faceted! Each Nakshatra has several different qualities that are accented by their interaction with a planet or a house cusp. Most astrologers acknowledge that there is more evidence of their usage pre-dating the use of Rasis (signs) within the Vedic system of Astrology. They are mysterious and complex! And though there is confirmation of their knowledge dating back to the Rig Veda, itself dated to approximately 1900 BC, there is little written information on how to use the Nakshatras in horoscope analysis. Knowing the Nakshatras does however allow for more colour and detail to be give to Horoscope Analysis. In short, the Nakshatras define how we grow our consciousness in relation to the factors that are placed within them.

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 also 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. In 2016, I taught an extensive course on the Nakshatras. But since then, I have developed a few different techniques that have allowed me to use them with greater accuracy and efficiency. I have been asked when I would teach a Nakshatra Course again. So, I figured with these new techniques, it would be good timing! The length of this course is to be at least 44 weeks in length, with the potential of extra classes being added at the end of the course should it be necessary in order to complete the syllabus. I don’t want to rush information. The intent here is to be very thorough! If extra classes are added, there will be no extra fee. This course will use example charts regularly.

Fee for the course is $899 and may be paid in full at the time of registration or by trimester at a fee of $329 per trimester. Second Trimester Fees due by 17th June, 2018 and 7th October, 2018. 

This course will be taught over consecutive Saturdays starting 24th March, 2018 and will continue through 2nd March 2019. We will be taking a break for the holiday season with our final class before the holidays being 17th November, 2018 and we will resume classes on 5th January, 2019.Class time will be from 6:30-8 pm London Time.
