Eve J. Mendoza became a serious student of Astrology over 20 years ago. In 1994, she met her first teacher who led her to the feet of Jyotish Shastra(more commonly known as Vedic Astrology.) She continued her studies in India where she devoted the next 10 years to serving her teacher and assisting in the every day maintenance of a Charitable Trust.
Eve has also been instructed in the art of Mantra as well as Ayurveda (the ancient Indian medical system). She returned from India in 2010 and has been offering readings ever since at the request of her teacher.

In this lecture, Eve J. Mendoza will present on the topic of the three activities of Shakti as listed in Brihat Parashara Hora Shastra, their special qualities and relation to the Grahas and Upagrahas.Additional subjects related will be covered such as the special and honored role of Devi Saraswati in Jyotish Shastra and Vedic literature as well as the unique planetary combinations listed in various Sanskrit works revealing that women could maintain scholarly roles in ancient society.Many old manuscripts that we rely on for astrological education contain additions from more recent and less illumined time periods. Most are also influenced from outside cultures.This discussion will attempt to find the pulse or heart beat at the root of the original texts in relation to Shakti and the feminine principle in devotional, ceremonial and astrological applications.
