Course Description

This course has a simple, 15-sentence fill-in-the-blank style template that you can use to read your Vedic astrology birth chart. Inside this course, you will learn how the planetary energies are the “producers” of events and situations in your life. Learn the goals of these energetic forces and how they apply to you and your interpretations of the world.

Discover how jyotiṣa or Vedic astrology illuminates your path of dharma in your life to help you interpret and declare satisfaction and happiness with the outcomes and results of your interactions in life.

  • Learn the foundational goals of the planetary energies
  • Discover the environments, rāśis or zodiacal signs, that support or hinder these planetary energies.
  • Understand what the material motivations of the bhavas (or houses) are trying to produce in your life.

Discover a 3-Step Framework of working with the whole human being you are by exploring the connections between Body, Emotions and Language and Jyotiṣa (Vedic Astrology)!

I want to offer you a framework, a new perspective of the holistic and integrated human being that you are! This perspective may help to incorporate several concepts that you have come across in your quest for personal transformation and development.

The underlying concept is that of language and the resultant, subjective expression of emotions and movement; movement through actions, movement through thoughts and ideas.

Course Contents And Overview

This course contains 36+ lectures and 2+ hours of content! The material in this course is what I use with my coaching clients so if you are curious about learning to coach yourself from observing your thoughts, ideas and body while exploring the interpretations of your Vedic astrology birth chart, this course is for you!

I strongly believe in 3 key ideas: #1) Education - learn about what matters to you; #2) Coaching - practice and embody that learning; and #3) Leadership - show up "fully and in presence" with others.

Every section in this course is connected and invites you to embody the learning. Each section has reflections and enquiry questions to help you notice what shows up for you as you to interpret your Vedic astrology birth chart.

The more you can practice and apply what you learn in the sections determines the results you'll get.

Curriculum

Section 1: Welcome To The Course!
04:29

In this course, we’re going to learn about how to apply a simple, 15-sentence template to your birth chart. This template is based on jyotiṣa or Vedic astrology. As a coach, I use jyotiṣa and a couple of models from Ontological Coaching with my clients to create understanding about the comprehensive way that the body works in conjunction with the linguistic and emotional components of the human experience.

I came across coaching after searching and seeking for a way to better understand who I was and how I actually “showed” up in the world. I tried other personality assessment and personality trait tools like Enneagrams, MBTI, StrengthsFinder and so on. They were great for what they were but I wanted something more. And that’s when I came across jyotiṣa and applied the rich Vedic frameworks to my life coaching practise.

01:22
Congratulations! I invite you to experience the emotion of pride for completing this section. There are a few action steps here that you can take to make your learning more meaningful. Remember, this is your journey to dive into the unique observer that you are!
Section 2: Identifying Vedic Frameworks To Learn What Exactly Jyotiṣa Is Revealing
01:03

A short video to welcome you to this section about briefly identifying Vedic frameworks that underlie what the Vedic birth chart shows.

06:48

There are 3 components to what Vedic astrology (jyotiṣa) is actually showing. What does it mean to you? Is it a personality profile tool? Or something else. In this video you’ll learn the 3 components that is shown by the chart. 1) Events and capacities as the unfolding of karma; 2) Major themes and energetic patterns that unfold in life and 3) Timing and predictions about events, or “comings” and “goings” that will show up in your life.

07:39

The Vedic frameworks support a perspective of "the mind" into 3 phases and 5 phases. These phases are the "instinctive," "intellectual," and "superconscious" mind.

The mind is known as "citta" in Sanskrit. The 5 states of mind are from the "wakeful" consciousness to the "superconscious" and all the states within. Once we know these distinctions, this will help us to tap into the intuition, clarity and insight to take action aligned with your true inner nature.

10:21

Two main concepts within the Vedas are "karma" and "dharma." Karma is a law of the mind just like gravity is a law of matter. Learn about how karma is a certain level, vibration and comprehension of intelligence and the resultant actions.

What is the quality of thought that is available to you? How will you know?

07:39

I’ve come across 3 different types of charts through my studies. This course focuses on the South Indian, “square” or Rāśi chart. This style of chart is focused on “Rāśis” which are the zodiacal signs. The other types of charts are the “diamond” or North Indian chart as well as the “wheel” or Western chart. Each chart has a certain focus or use. In this course we will use the South Indian style chart.

We focus on identifying the information presented in the South Indian Vedic astrology birth chart. The chart is divided into 12 “boxes” to represent each of the zodiacal signs from Aries to Pisces. The grahas (more commonly known as “planets”) reside within the signs. Furthemore, the grahas also conjunct bhava cusps (or house cusps). An additional detail are the nakṣatras that each of the grahas falls in.

02:02

Jyotiṣa is the illumination of your life path; your path of dharma. How aware are you of what events, situations and conversations will show up in your life? How can you prepare your framework of belief to undertake actions that become congruent to that unique observer you are in the world?

Section 3: Basic Chart Reading Template & Associated Keywords For Rāśis, Bhavas and Grahas
01:52

A welcome video to let you know what you will learn. You will get a video covering each of the PDF worksheets and learn how to interpret them.

The grahas are the “seizers” or “planets” in Vedic astrology and these are the energies that seek to produce and fulfil their goals. I illustrate a few of the keywords related to each of these grahas and what they hope to fulfil.

The bhavas are usually called “houses” in common terminology but in Vedic astrology, it’s more accurate to see the bhavas as “concrete, existing points in reality”. In Sanskrit, the word “bhava” means several things including: “coming into existence; birth; origin; produced from…” A key concept is to understand that each bhava flows from one to another.

At a basic level, the Vedic astrology birth chart is about showing the path of life you are on. This path is for you to fulfil your dharma and mature yourself in the physical realm as well as the emotional and mental realm. The important points to find in the birth chart are the Ascendant (Asc. or “lagna” in Sanskrit).
