  • Jyotisha, "The Science of Light", is a vast and ancient wisdom technology - the ultimate app for living a meaningful life. You can begin to learn how to use it! This two-hour course will survey the basic components of the Divine Science. We'll touch on the origins of Jyotisha, and certain philosophical constructs underlying this type of astrology. We will introduce you to the meaning of the nine planets/grahas; the twelve signs/rasis; the twelve houses, and the twenty-seven Moon signs/nakshatras. That's a lot of numbers, but don't worry - there is no math required.

    Summaries of certain special relationships between the planets and the houses (yogas), and with each other (aspects); the concept of dasas; and how transiting planets produce effects will also be offered. This class is complimentary and is meant to prepare you to dip your toes into the "Ocean of Jyotish"!
