+ Introduction
3 lectures 12:22

Before initializing any Vedic study, it is imperative that you recite the Student Invocation in Sanskrit in order to enjoy a brilliant study.

Preview 01:24

It is said in yogic philosophy that the best way to remember any subject is to repeat its content over and over (abhyasa in Sanskrit) - repetition, repetition, repetition!  Therefore, you will summarize some of the highlights learned in "Learn Vedic Astrology Part 1".

Summarize "Learn Vedic Astrology Part 1"
07:36

Be able to distinguish some of the elementary differences between Vedic Astrology and Western Astrology's annotations and commonly used abbreviations.  In other words, start a positive habit in 'staying true' to the study of Jyotish and don't interweave and 'mix systems'.

Unique to Vedic Astrology
03:22
+ Planetary States & Relationships
5 lectures 45:25

Vedic Astrology explains how each of the planets "gaze" at each other and influence each other, or not.  Western Astrology uses an entirely different system to show how the planets influence each other, such as, sextiles, squares, etc.; yet Jyotish uses the explanation of 'planetary gaze' (Dṛṣṭi).

Planetary Associations & Aspects
13:55

Learn in which signs (constellations) planets exert most of their power or function at a lesser than desireable level of power.  Note that one of my students, Shubham Goel, just sent me the PDF files of the planets in the charts for the Exaltation and Debilitation grahas in the rashis!  Wow, what an incredible job he did...good job Shubham!

Exaltation & Debilitation
11:16

Astrology in essence is a symbolic representation of what "happens above" (in the skys) also "happens below" (in our psyche)..."As above, so below"; therefore, it is no coincidence that planets themselves act like humans.  They also have relationships amongst themselves.  Learn what those relationships look like in the Planetary Cabinet.

Planetary Relationships
06:24

Just like us humans have a 'preferred location' (i.e. sleep best in our bedroom) where we perform at our highest level, planets also have a 'preferred area' in the natal chart where they perform at their utmost best (depending on their qualities).

Digbala
04:46

Every planet has a unique set of qualities and characteristics that best represent the complexity of our psychology.  Even though all the planets are necessary and neither planet is better or worse than the other, based on our 'human experience', we describe certain planets as being "malefic" or "benefic".  In other words, some planet's influence on our psyche bring either more sorrow or more joy to our lives depending on its particular symbolism.

06:18

You can have a lot of fun if you get either the App in Google Play or the Apple Store named "Starry Night", or you may buy the software program so you can play around with the Orbits of the Planets in relation to Earth.  When you see a "Bird's Eye View" of the orbits in the sky as if you were above in the sky, then you will understand better the concept of Retrogression.  Here you will see a 'screen recording' of that "Bird's Eye View" of the retrogression of Mars, Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, and Saturn.

Retrogression "In Action"
06:06

Take a look at two cycles of Saturn's Retrogression from a Heliocentric View using the Starry Night App. The dates you will view are from September 2017 to May 2020.
