Swiss Army Knife Reading Intensive

Online Virtual Conference

Saturday and Sunday September 1-2

1o am – 5 pm PDT (With Breaks)
5 Hours of Class time per day.

Use the right tool at the right time!

In the “Swiss Army knife” course you learned several of the most important connections to focus on. We spent so much time explaining and going over these structures. But we did not get to read many charts using these methods.

On this weekend we will focus on reading chart after chart using the precise methods, both from the chart and in transit to make razor sharp predictions, that not only explain what will happen, but WHY it happened. 

There is nothing like getting people together, using powerful chart reading methods, then seeing those methods work over and over again on charts that we pull up on the fly and examine.  

I will also bring out a few other tactics and concepts that I did not get to on the first Weekend. They include:  

  • Dig Bala (or reverse)
  • Bhavat Bhavam compounding
  • Rasi / Nakshatra or Varga Activation

Overview of the Jaimini System of Astrology – Case Studies

Weekend Overview and Details

:: Jaimini Astrology Immersion ::
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:
Friday – Overview and reframing of how planets signs and houses work together naturally and in the Jaimini System. The difference between natural Karakas (planets) and the Chara Karakas (based on degree). Rasi Aspects, Chara Dasa and more.
