NOTE: This course is now offerred as a "bundle" option, along with the Jyotish and Yogic Philosophy course. You can take both for the price of one, $27USD/month. See the bundle option on the course menu or click HERE.
The main source material for this ongoing course will be the Nakshatra Sutras from the Taittireya Brahmana, a part of the Krishna Yajur Veda, an extremely ancient text. This text is as "Vedic" as it gets, and has sanskrit sutras cryptically explaining the nature and energy of each of the 27 nakshatras.
The thing is, as I will explain in this course in detail, there really is not that much great source material on the nakshatras, and there is an incredible amount of embellishment of the nakshatras in the current "youtube astrology" scene. To understand the nakshatras best, there are astronomical principles to understand that are often overlooked. This course aims to remedy that, focusing on actual research over click-baity thumbnails. Not just using 2 or 3 charts as examples, but 10 or more for each star. The goal of this course is to adapt the nakshatra to modern astrological contexts while not embellishing them or mistaking them for the qualities of the Rashis that overlap with them.
I cover the mythology, meaning, and various qualities and classifications that the 27 nakshatras fall under, and how to use them in practice. I go deeply into the sanskrit names and the stories behind them. I cover the Deities that rule them, and the stories behind each star field. The nakshatra are given many unique qualities such as Dhatu, Mula, or Jeeva, or Rajas, Tamas, or Sattva. We focus also on the unique nature of each star (such as ugra and kruura, laghu and kshipra, dhruva and sthira, etc.)
Examples are given for how to use each star and synthesize them into your Astrology practice. The course comes with a manual, and several pdfs, and all material is downloadable. The subscription gets you access to other courses as well, including a telegram group chat to ask questions to me and other astrologers.
In the future I may offer this course with other bonuses along with the Jyotish course. See the courses page for all the bundle options.
