Even though it may sound complicated and maybe “above your head”, jaimini Astrology is actually very straightforward and direct and gives enormous flexibility and powerful options when it comes to making predictions. 

Jaimini astrology revolves around a few key calculations that we will discuss and utilize in this special weekend:
Bhava Padas (Arudhas) – shows the actions of the bhavas
Chara Karakas (Atma karaka, Amatya karak, etc.) – movable indicators for each chart
Karakamsa(s) – Altenative lagna(s) for different Vargas
Chara Dasa (for timing) – Rasi based dasa system
Rasi Aspects – Sign based aspects used in Jaimini Astrology

Class Structure and Schedule:
