Have you ever noticed that a person will seem to have a strong planetary signature in their personality, and you expect to see that planet featured prominently in their birth chart by being in an angle, in or ruling the ascendant/lagna, or the Sun or Moon, but it turns out that it’s not in any of those places in the chart like you expected it to be? What you are most likely seeing in their personality/appearance/speech is the Atmakaraka (AK), the Self-Producer or the “essence/soul” planet. When you know what to look for in the chart, you will likely never be stumped like that again!
The planet that “you came from and the planet you will return to” is the Atmakaraka (AK), or “Self-Producer” planet. In this course, we will talk about each planetary Atmakaraka type and how to recognize them, what they most value, what they most need, and how to relate to them.

In terms of the astrologer’s toolbox, the Nakshatras are an excellent resource from both a predictive and a therapeutic level. From the therapeutic perspective, the Nakshatras will show us what an individual is experiencing subjectively during a particular phase of their existence. Additionally, we can see if they are having an easy time integrating this or if they are having extreme difficulty and offer them advice based upon the influencing Nakshatra. Although there is much information in regards to using the Nakshatras in Elective Astrology for choosing an auspicious date for an event, there is scarce information in terms of how to work with them in terms of Chart Interpretation. The goal of this course is to provide with the necessary tools with which to do so.
The Lajjitaadi Avashtas are planet specific. If you have your birth chart (which I can give you if you don’t), you can learn how to simply see what planets are conjunct or aspecting each other, and then we can analyze the Avashtas. Will your planets (and therefore those areas of your life represented by the planets) be:
1) Ashamed by their Enemies or Rahu and Ketu
5) Agitated by being too close to the Sun
Then, you know why your experiences and those around you are the way they are, and you can deal with them appropriately.
This rarely used aspect of Jyotish has proven to be extremely accurate in understanding a person’s chart and explaining those areas that weren’t evident otherwise.
In this video course, we will explore:
- How the natal birth chart reveals and reflects the Hora, Drekkena, Chaturtamsa, Saptamsa, Navamsa and Dasamsa.
- How to create each of these from the formulas outlined in Vedic texts
- How planetary and sign based aspects work within each considered divisional chart
- The role of each planet in the vargas
- The role of each house within the appropriate Vargas
- How to synthesize the information given in the Rasi Chart with the Vargas
The Varga Charts (or divisional charts) explain the real reasons why our life unfolds the way it does, in certain areas and at certain times. It shows specifically how each area of our life will be affected in regards to the changing Dashas or time cycles.
This is why you can go into a bad period as indicated by the birth chart, say a debilitated Mercury cycle, yet many areas of your life thrive. This is because Mercury is not debilitated in all of the 15 other important divisional charts. In some, he may even be exalted. Each of the vargas represents a particular area of life.
It is my goal that within this course, you will learn very intimately what the planets do within our lives and consciousness. We will learn the concrete things a planet produces and also the innate qualities a planet imparts to those areas of life it influences. Ideally, you will also learn how to recognize how a planet may be functioning within a person by simply talking with them or hearing about their life experience. By practice of mantra and contemplation, you will learn to work with the planets for your self-development and also learn how to recognize and advise proper remedial measures for your clients. This is the true Magick of astrology.
(Note: Personal tutoring sessions are also available for $75.00 per hour. Previous study of all available MP3 downloadable classes is required before seeking personal tutorials. All tutorial sessions can be recorded and emailed to the student for later review.)
This Vedic Astrology Audio MP3 Class introduces Saturn, his qualities, methods of understanding and working with the conscious energy of Saturn within us. It contains a mantra practice, meditation practice and describes the Myths of Saturn necessary to grow and evolve into a working relationship with this often dreaded planet.
It is my hope and wish that this short lecture will bring clarity in regards to power and purpose of Saturn’s most dreaded transits, the Saturn Return and the Sade Sati.
In this step-by-step chart analysis course you will get to watch a professional astrologer interpret a chart from beginning to end. By following the same procedures and step-by-step processes illustrated during this class you will be introduced to a logical working method to understand any horoscope. You will get to see, through various chart examples, how a working astrologer:
• Assesses the chart basics to determine a person’s character
• Considers the avashtas to see the potential circumstances of a person’s life
• Examines the appropriate divisional charts to understand one’s strengths
• Determines when certain life events are most likely to occur through the dashas
No longer will you wonder where to begin or what to do next when researching a chart.
Prasna is an excellent tool to answer our pressing questions in life. Not everyone needs a full astrological birth chart reading. Sometimes we just have one or two burning questions that need answered to help us deal with a situation or gauge if this is the right time or not to take action. By constructing an astrological chart for the moment a question is asked, gives us insights into the results of taking a certain action. This is the most accurate form of astrology in our current age, because it does not require a client to have an accurate birth time, or even a birth chart at all (although that can be helpful).
This course contains nearly 8 hours of video, using example charts and student interaction to delineate and explain the proper approach to begin practicing Prasna Astrology. In this class, we will learn the basic principles to begin answering questions using Prasna.
The ability to accurately judge the development and outcome of someone’s horoscope based on the dashas, bhuktis and transits operating at any particular time is a skill that is acquired gradually and as a result of careful study and analysis. It draws upon all of our knowledge of how to assess the horoscope, its avashtas, vargas, strengths and weaknesses.
If we can read a birth chart, then we can begin to see when the karmas held within the horoscope will give their effects. The goal of this course is demonstrate and explore how planetary positions, planetary dignity, the avashtas, transits and the divisional charts can all be woven together to see the tapestry of life unfolding into specific events.
This is an advanced class. It is advised that you have read The Art and Science of Vedic Astrology and AT LEAST have studied and completed the free introductory course available on http://www.youtube.com/user/RyansVedicAstrology.
