Vedic Astrology: NEW! What Planet is He/She From? The Atmakaraka “Soul Planet” in Relationships
The Atmakaraka planet (AK) is the cornerstone of the Jaimini technique. Taught by two Vedic Astrologers, Karen White and Ryan Kurczak, this is a fun and lively course about the one planet in the chart that can tell you a multitude of things about yourself or your partner (in your chart your partner’s soul planet is called the Darakaraka, or DK).
You’ll be amazed at what you can see and know about yourself and another person with just the AK planet, especially when it comes to your relationships.
Vedic Astrology 101: Basic Astrology and Ayurveda Audio Course
This class is based off of the book “The Art and Science of Vedic Astrology” by Richard Fish and Ryan Kurczak. It is an introductory class, meant to supplement the reading of that text.
Vedic Astrology 101 Audio Course begins by exploring the role of Vedic Astrology as a science of divine guidance and how it relates to spiritual practice and development. It explores the basic indications of the planets, signs and house, which are fundamental building blocks to understanding astrology correctly. After reviewing the astrological basics the class then moves on to chart interpretation using the principles covered, with an emphasis on Ayurvedic healing.
The Lajjitaadi Avashtas are planet specific. If you have your birth chart (which I can give you if you don’t), you can learn how to simply see what planets are conjunct or aspecting each other, and then we can analyze the Avashtas. Will your planets (and therefore those areas of your life represented by the planets) be:
1) Ashamed by their Enemies or Rahu and Ketu
5) Agitated by being too close to the Sun
Then, you know why your experiences and those around you are the way they are, and you can deal with them appropriately.
This rarely used aspect of Jyotish has proven to be extremely accurate in understanding a person’s chart and explaining those areas that weren’t evident otherwise.
It is my goal that within this course, you will learn very intimately what the planets do within our lives and consciousness. We will learn the concrete things a planet produces and also the innate qualities a planet imparts to those areas of life it influences. Ideally, you will also learn how to recognize how a planet may be functioning within a person by simply talking with them or hearing about their life experience. By practice of mantra and contemplation, you will learn to work with the planets for your self-development and also learn how to recognize and advise proper remedial measures for your clients. This is the true Magick of astrology.
The Varga Charts (or divisional charts) explain the real reasons why our life unfolds the way it does, in certain areas and at certain times. It shows specifically how each area of our life will be affected in regards to the changing Dashas or time cycles.
This is why you can go into a bad period as indicated by the birth chart, say a debilitated Mercury cycle, yet many areas of your life thrive. This is because Mercury is not debilitated in all of the 15 other important divisional charts. In some, he may even be exalted. Each of the vargas represents a particular area of life.
Prasna is an excellent tool to answer our pressing questions in life. Not everyone needs a full astrological birth chart reading. Sometimes we just have one or two burning questions that need answered to help us deal with a situation or gauge if this is the right time or not to take action. By constructing an astrological chart for the moment a question is asked, gives us insights into the results of taking a certain action. This is the most accurate form of astrology in our current age, because it does not require a client to have an accurate birth time, or even a birth chart at all (although that can be helpful).
This course contains nearly 8 hours of video, using example charts and student interaction to delineate and explain the proper approach to begin practicing Prasna Astrology. In this class, we will learn the basic principles to begin answering questions using Prasna.
The ability to accurately judge the development and outcome of someone’s horoscope based on the dashas, bhuktis and transits operating at any particular time is a skill that is acquired gradually and as a result of careful study and analysis. It draws upon all of our knowledge of how to assess the horoscope, its avashtas, vargas, strengths and weaknesses.
If we can read a birth chart, then we can begin to see when the karmas held within the horoscope will give their effects. The goal of this course is demonstrate and explore how planetary positions, planetary dignity, the avashtas, transits and the divisional charts can all be woven together to see the tapestry of life unfolding into specific events.
This is an advanced class. It is advised that you have read The Art and Science of Vedic Astrology and AT LEAST have studied and completed the free introductory course available on http://www.youtube.com/user/RyansVedicAstrology.
