Love, Marriage & Sexuality

Love, Marriage & Sexuality

  • Product Details

  • Additional Information

  • For some, love is a many-splendored thing, while for others it's the heartache of a lifetime. Any astrologer with a few years' experience knows that the big issues for clients are typically relationships and career, especially the former. Indeed, if you can bring masterful insight and counsel to those two topics alone, you'll satisfy 90% of most clients' concerns.

    Although society supports marriage, not everyone is ready to go along for the ride. While some horoscopes reveal wholehearted enthusiasm for falling in love and tying the knot, others are ambivalent, and prefer to keep their options open... sometimes forever. Even for those inclined to bond, astrological caveats and guidelines dictate the nature of the prospective union.

    Knowing who is marriage material and who’s not, and under what conditions such unions are fulfilled, is the astrologer's contribution to a client’s happiness and/or peace of mind, whether in pursuit of love and marriage, or in resignation to its poor prognosis.

    Regardless of whether a client is committed to their freedom or their marriage, the topic of sexuality is often the elephant in the room. Everyone's thinking about it, but no one's talking about it. Classic jyotish texts often offer only cryptic allusions to sex, leaving it to gurus and teachers to un-zip shastra and reveal what’s going on between Mars and Venus.

    In every relationship, the Self pursues its own dharma, while the Other is an agent of kama, the pleasure of another's company. In a sexual relationship, both partners seek moksha via catharsis, liberation, and the release of emotions or sensations that border on ecstasy. Thus, is erected a tripod of key bhavas upon which sexual relationships are mounted.

    Passions may run the gamut from platonic infatuation to full-bore licentiousness, and everything in between. In the horoscope, some planets fan the flames of sexuality, while others pour a bucket of frigid water onto the fire. As in so much of jyotish, the Devil is in the details of Ms. Jones’s horoscope.

    This intensive will tear away the veil that has previously shrouded the topic of love and sexuality in jyotish. Just as your first sexual experience irrevocably changed your view of life, you'll never look at a horoscope the same way again.
