Students will learn commonly used Indian astrology techniques and put their knowledge to work by delineating a chart every week. Example charts will emphasize “ordinary” people, the kind of charts people see in the real world. Although some would argue that they are more difficult to interpret than famous charts, this approach will help students to swiftly refine their judgments.

By the end of this course, students should be able to make a meaningful delineation of a natal chart in the Indian style. The goal is to help students think like an Indian astrologer and combine chart elements into a meaningful whole.

Indian Astrology (also called Jyotish or Vedic Astrology) is a uniquely unbroken tradition of astrology, practiced continuously for as long as 2,000 years according to modern scholarship. In Indian, this tradition is viewed as extending back at least 5,000 years. It is referenced in the religious writing of India as far back as the Maha Bharata and the Atharva Veda, two ancient spiritual texts.

The concepts covered in this course include:

  1. Yogas (planetary combinations)
  2. Navamsa and other divisional charts
  3. Predicting the Future with Dashas (Planetary Periods).
  4. Predicting the Future with Transits (Gochara).
  5. Comprehensive Chart Delineation
