Beginners Course in Vedic Astrology

Vedic Astrology is the oldest known astrological system in the world. It has been passed down orally in the Sanskrit language for thousands of years and written down only comparatively recently.

Vedic Astrology is a spiritual science, which delights not only the mind but the heart. It is known as Jyotisha, or the study of light.

The course will outline this science both for beginners and for those who have learned via modern astrology.

As well as basic astrological calculations and rules you will be introduced to the profound mythology of India, whose stories tell the laws of astrology and you will be shown how to methodically examine a chart using these simple techniques.
