Pride to the Side! – Mars in Purva Phalguni 19th Aug 10th Sep, 2019

You have done well with putting this little problem to the side for a while! But now, something that was little is becoming something that is bigger than you care to deal with! Because you are not getting what you need from the situation to make you feel fulfilled, you are likely frustrated and angry! Where should you really direct that energy? At someone else? How can you do that if they are not aware of the issue that you are angry about? And if they are, perhaps they also have their own set of criteria they are unhappy about? Okay, should you direct it at yourself then? What good is that going to do, you are only trying to set up your life in a better manner! Pride to the side and honest talk to the forefront, but when intense emotional charge has calmed! With Mars transiting Purva Phalguni Nakshatra, those who ask stand a greater chance of receiving and those who communicate with empathy stand a greater chance of receiving the same level of respect!

New! Jaimini Level 1 Video Course

Michael Reed, Counselling Astrologer
Jaimini Astrology Excels at Indicating the Concrete Experiences of an Individual’s Life. It is simultaneously one of the simplest techniques for chart interpretation in existence and also one of the most accurate…once you know how to work with it! That is the purpose of this course where we will be approaching as many of the four sections of the first chapter of Jaimini’s Upadesa Sutras as we possibly can with the remainder to be followed up with on a Level 2 Course next year. I want to take time with these sutras and provide many examples so that the techniques become firm for students of the course!

Whereas other texts have become adultered with ‘cookbook’ techniques and yogas (planetary combinations) that do not always work, Jaimini Sutras contains techniques for knowing many of the important concrete things of an individual’s life, such as number of children, whether or not they will get married, career, the type of homes they will live in, etc. These techniques actually do work and to a high level of accuracy. This in addition to the simplicity and accuracy with which Jaimini’s Dasa system will allow an astrologer to predict. On the first level of this course, we will initially learn how to work with two of these Dasas. Companion text for the course is Ernst Wilhelm’s Upadesa Sutras Raw Volume 1. This will need to be purchased separately.

This course may be purchased in sections available for immediate download containing anywhere between 3-6 classes each and priced accordingly between $45-$65. I apologise for not being able to make each section uniform. It is due to digital download file size restrictions.

Jaimini Level 1 Video Course Part 1 (Available for immediate download) – Classes 1-3. On Part 1 of the course, we discuss the code in which Jaimini’s Upadesa Sutras is written. We then proceed to a discussion of the theory behind Rasi aspects, what they are and how they work. Part 1 finishes with the concept of Argala, it’s importance and how to work with it. Additionally, we discuss Virodhina, which is how Argala is blocked!

We then explore Jaimini’s Sutra on the Cara Karakas and how to find them. Class 7 continues with Jaimini’s version of the Naisargika (Natural) Karakas, of which there are different planets than the traditional version. This is well worth learning as these, I have found, are much more accurate. We also discuss Jaimini’s rule on counting forward or reverse. Class 8 continues with a discussion on how to find the Pada for any Rasi.

In Class 10, we review Padas and Argala further and begin Jaimini’s Sutras on the Svamsa, which is the Rasi holding the Atmakaraka in the Navamsa. These chapters contain priceless information on the Rasis not found elsewhere. In Class 11 we discuss the Svamsa in Aries and Taurus. In Class 12 we discuss the Svamsa in Gemini, Cancer and Leo. And in Class 13 we discuss the Svamsa in Virgo, Libra ans Scorpio. We work with examples of all of these placements!

Predicting Concrete Events Level 1 Video Course: Mutual Planetary Agenda, the Avasthas and Vimshottari Dasa

Now available as a video course, available for purchase and immediate download in four segments of 3-4 classes each! Details Below!

Doing excellent predictive astrology is reliant primarily on confluence! Things happen astrologically when planets share an agenda and either have the strength to create the desired result, or are afflicted to the point that they destroy the agenda that they share! Astrological Common Sense determines what can make a strong or weak planet! In addition to this, the Avasthas of Vedic Astrology contribute in a strong manner to either the strength or weakness of the indicated factors. From there, we merely need to look at what planets share as an agenda to determine the fruits of the horoscope during a particular time period. On this Video Course, I will cover all of these points so you can learn how to make accurate predictions about concrete things through the use of Vimshottari Dasa! A Level 2 Webinar Course starts Sunday 24th March with a potential Level 3 course to follow.

This course is available in four segments ranging from 3-4 classes each, priced from $38-$54. Each segment contains a PowerPoint for review alongside the videos. A basic understanding of the fundamentals of Vedic Astrology is recommended.

Enrollment in the course also entitles you to membership to my Vedic Astrology Forum where you may post questions for me to answer regarding class or any other enquiry related to Vedic Astrology.

Here are some of the things that are covered in the course.

Exploring the Vargas – An Extensive Video Course on the Divisional Charts of Vedic Astrology

So let’s say for instance that you are looking at a horoscope and you notice the fourth and the seventh houses getting set off like fireworks! The 4th can mean everything from home to mother, plus much more. The seventh can be related to foreign countries and relationships. So, what are you to make out from this? Will the individual be moving in with his girlfriend? Or, will he live abroad? Will his mother be abroad at the time in question? We need more depth in order to determine these things. And certainly we may find more in the main chart, or rasi chart as it is also called. But if we want to be more conclusive, we have to look elsewhere. And the vargas, or divisional charts of Vedic Astrology are precisely where we need to look for more information. What’s that? You don’t know how to read the vargas? Well, soon you will if you take this course. Each varga has a variety of uses. And in this course, you will learn a practical system with which to pull information from the varga charts in order to further substantiate the information you see in the Rasi chart.

This course was taught from late Winter 2017 to early Summer 2018 and has now been released as a video course. Each class is approximately 90 minutes in length. The course is 61 classes long. It will be released in parts over the course of the coming weeks. Each Part contains not only the Videos, but also Power Point Notes for Referral and Learning Facilitation. Purchase of the course grants you membership in my Astrological Forum so that if you have questions, you may post them there. A basic understanding of the fundamentals of Vedic Astrology is recommended.

New! Clarifying Rahu and Ketu Dasas-An Extensive Video Course on Excelling with the Nodes

Due to popular demand, I have decided to schedule a course on Rahu and Ketu. Rahu and Ketu Dasa periods are often the most tumultuous and confusing times of life. Most clients approaching astrologers do so when experiencing a period related to one of these points. Why is this? One reason is that the nodes are the points that create eclipses. They either represent areas which we are familiar with but unclear on how to further develop as in the case of Ketu. Or, areas which are obscured from our view and therefore unfamiliar, but direly in need of development as is the case with Rahu. Equally, the nodes act as a focalising point for all of the karma indicated in the chart. There is a profound amount of influences on these two points either through rulership, conjunction or aspect. So, there will be wild ups and downs during these periods. These dasa periods are the most difficult times for an astrologer to interpret correctly due to this. But, there are many different techniques which can aid the astrologer in doing so. This course on the nodes is intended to help astrologers, whether professional or hobbyists to excel at doing so.

This course was taught from Spring 2017 to early Summer 2018 and has now been released as a video course. Each class is approximately 90 minutes in length. The course is 49 classes long. It will be released in parts over the course of the coming weeks. Each Part contains not only the Videos, but also Power Point Notes for Referral and Learning Facilitation. Purchase of the course grants you membership in my Astrological Forum so that if you have questions, you may post them there. A basic understanding of the fundamentals of Vedic Astrology is recommended.

Here is a General Overview of the Course. Below is a Video Listing for Each Part of the Course Along with a Button to Purchase That Part Directly Below. At the Top is a Button for Full Payment. Files for the course are stored on a private cloud folder. Upon purchase, please allow up to 24 hours to receive the link which will enable you to download the videos to your device (after all, I may be sleeping!). Many times it will only be a few hours. Should you have any questions prior to purchasing, please feel free to Contact Me.

Some of the information and techniques to be covered on the course are as follows:

  • Understanding the Nodes Astronomically
  • The Mythology and Symbolism of the Nodes
  • The Several Methods in which the Nodes are Calculated
  • An Introduction to the Lajjitaadi Avasthas (A Course within a Course!)
  • Understanding the Nodes in the Rasis (Signs)
