Leeds International Vedic Astrology Conference: Fate & Fortune

It is always good news when announcing events and gatherings dedicated to the topic that we love, namely Jyotish. One such event has been planned for the month of October this year, in Leeds Theosophical Society.

The topic chosen is Bhagya: Fate & Fortune. The conference has an exciting panel of speakers, including Visti Larsen, Rajan Pitamber, Gordon Brennan, Vijaya Subramanian, and Paul Barker.

For bookings and further information email: info@ts-leeds.org.uk.

This will be the second year around to meet this wonderful and growing part of our Jyotish community. Last year Visti Larsen presented two topics, of which one was a whole day lecture on the topic of Ātma sambandha or How the planet symbolizing the soul, the Ātmakāraka, affects the native’s relationships and life!

This workshop is now available at RAMA Academy, together with accompanying workbook, free material and more.

Hope this is of a benefit to you and your ever-growing knowledge.

Comparing 3 types of Vimshottari Dashas

Comparing 3 types of Vimshottari Dashas

Comparing 3 types of Vimshottari Dashas is Part 2. of a presentation done by Visti Larsen, with his gracious host, Anuradha Sharda. If you have missed Part 1., we recommend that you start with that. You can find How to read Dasha Sandhi here.

Daśā is the study of time and thus also our search for Mahakāla. This Mahakāla is the origin of time and existed before time began.

When did our time begin? Does it end, and when?

When is a good time or a bad time?

All these are the study of daśā.

If you have the knowledge, let others light their candles in it.

In the true spirit of the quote from above, the month of May was all about knowledge-sharing.

If you haven’t already, my sincere recommendation is to listen to the lecture on the topic of The Astrological Soul: A Study of Eastern Astrology and Philosophy Part 1 & Part 2. The lecture was delivered by my Guruji, Pt. Sanjay Rath.

Another warm recommendation goes to checking the article by Visti Larsen WHICH AYANAMSA DO I USE? In this article Visti answers the reoccurring questions regarding the choice of the ayanamsa, what he has learned, what he uses and what he doesn’t use and why.

I happen to know that Visti also shares some really good and valuable lessons with those who subscribe to his weekly email. A small bite size part of it can be found below (to subscribe to Visti’s emails click here):

The first and most important lesson on transits and how to read them is: ‘what should be your reference point?’. Without this the transit analysis is not going to work, and the results will be vague and whimsical at best.
e.g. Sade Sathi works, but not from the Moon’s Rāśi… but from its Navāṁśa! Whilst all the astrologers in the market highlight this important 7½ year event, doing so from the Moon’s Rāśi/D-1 placement will not provide the results one expects unless one reckons this from the Moon’s Navāṁśa position.

You can read the rest here.

As to the upcoming events, don’t miss out on the two Jyotish events coming up on the 9th of June. You can read all about them here.

Jyotish News | What is New in Vedic Astrology

This weekly post is dedicated to the News where I hope to share and inform on the newest in the world of Jyotish. This time it is the very best of the news in the form of the new online lectures done by my Guruji, Pt. Sanjay Rath.

The topic is that of Pañcānga. Pañcānga is a Sanskrit word that means five parts or five limbs of time (pancha=five and anga=limbs or parts), those being Vara, Tithi, Karana, Nakshatra, and Yoga. As taught in the Tradition, examining Pañcānga is the very first step in ones approach to chart. In fact, we were taught that a student of Jyotisha is supposed to keep a diary of the Pañcānga for the day. With that in mind, I took some time to make a printable Pañcānga template for your own use, being chart analysis or a personal Jyotish diary.

Panchanga Template – Five limbs of Time

But, back to the lecture. In the first video, Guruji is speaking on the topic of the Vara or weekday, and the subjects of health, children and the basics of Panchanga are touched upon.

If you have missed it, you can find the lecture here: Video 1. Sanjay Rath: Magic of your Birth Day, with Kapiel Raj.

The second lecture covers the topic of Tithi or lunar day. Herein, the link to one’s relationships, the spouse and the quality of marriage is spoken upon.

Video 2. Pt. Sanjay Rath: My Spouse and Marriage Secrets

If you like the topic and want to learn more, you can listen to the Pañcānga series lecture delivered by Visti Larsen here.

And last but not the least, BAVA announced the 2019 20th International Conference held in London, 19-24 April 2019, with the topic Love, Marriage, and Relationships. You can find all the details here.

Dear Friends,
We have welcomed the New Year with an abundance of new video/audio and written materials, covering different Jyotish topics. For those hungry and thirsty for this divine knowledge, this is the golden era (and yes, all thanks to technology)!!

If you have missed some of it, here is the link to one of the lectures delivered by Visti Larsen, with his gracious host Vanita Lenka. The lecture was on the topic of Ketu, and how to read Ketu in one’s horoscope.

KETU THE LIBERATOR | Visti Larsen with Vanita Lenka

During his presentation, Visti gives an in-depth answers to the following questions

  1. Which signs does Ketu lord if any?
  2. What is Ketu karaka/significator of?
  3. Can Ketu suffer afflictions, and if so, what are the indications?
  4. What is Ketu Chakra and how to predict with it? And much more…

To establish the classroom/learning atmosphere, I took some time to create a worksheet with questions on topics covered during this presentation. You can download your worksheet down below, listen to the lecture at your own pace, and then try to answer all the questions. If you can do this in hand then even better, as that written by hand is half learned (and, I am sure that you know the story of Ganesha, yes/no?).

Worksheet: How to read Ketu in a horoscope

This practice will deepen your understanding and can clarify your areas of confusion, if any.

Enjoy and hope you will benefit from this, 

p.s. The webinar has several parts!
