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

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.

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.

Vedic Sciences Instructor

After more than 10 years of witnessing human suffering working as a San Francisco Police Officer, and myself becoming a "victim" of dis"ease", finding an alternative to that lifestyle was not even a question anymore. Courage was my health insurance, and determination my pension plan. I left that life and never looked back. Yet, the most rewarding outcome of my police career was receiving my Basic Instructor Certificate, which I used the last five years to teach leadership to incoming officers at the academy. That amazing experience enabled me to currently lead workshops in Ayurveda.

Yoga, Ayurveda (Indian Medical System), Jyotish (Vedic Astrology), Hasta (Scientific Hand Analysis), and Vastu (Indian Feng Shui) are all passions of mine.

I studied Ayurveda at the California College of Ayurveda and received certification at the Sivananda Ashram Yoga Farm; both in Grass Valley, CA.
