EYE ON THE SKY: MARS IN CAPRICORN WITH KETU
In the mean node system Ketu moves within 5 degrees of Mars again Sept. 11 and is conjunct into Sept. 22nd. This is the third time around with the first direct movement happening in early June and the 2nd pass peaking into July 17th. The True node conjunction is Sept. 26th. They are probably not far enough apart until after Oct 7th. We have pointed out exercise, releasing bottled anger and staying away from spicy food and favoring cooling foods and coconut water are important to stay on top of as well staying on top of yoga and meditation. Here is a guide again based on your moon or rising sign. In many ways this year’s Mars/Ketu energy is much easier then next year’s Saturn/Ketu conjunction which will impact us from March-Nov. 2019.

FALL IS HERE AND TIME FOR ASTROLOGY STUDIES WITH MERCURY GETTING READY TO GO INTO VIRGO SEPT. 19TH.
Take our newest live webinar starting Sunday, Oct. 7th:
The essential divisional charts are a deeper look into the Varga charts – the natal chart house values operating and how they manifest in someone’s life.
People born on the same day with the same rising sign are very different and even twins born minutes apart are very different. Vedic astrology is like reading strands of DNA. You can go very deep in understanding Karma when you look at the divisional charts and see how they interact with the main chart.
This course seeks to offer deeper depth into seeing the deeper values operating and when they manifest in someone’s life. We will focus on the most used and needed Varga charts starting with Navamsha and also looking the D-10 for the career which comes up often.
The D-3 which divides the sign into 3 parts is a very key chart for revealing a lot of hidden information about courage, sexuality, siblings, and health and needs more focus when looking at your chart and others charts. Of course, we have to cover children which are so often asked about as well as property.
We will also teach techniques for rectifying people’s charts using the subtle variations in the Varga charts and focus on D-60 which Parashara gives great value to but which often is ignored because it changes every 2 minutes and has to be rectified to be useful.
A basic knowledge of Vedic astrology is required. The class is being geared to benefit basic astrological students as well as those with a more advanced background. Please email questions directly to Barry Rosen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
