Applied Vedic Astrology - NatalAre you constantly wanting to know when things will get better for you? A good astrologer can tell you.

They can look at your chart and tell you when Jupiter, the planet of good fortune will be in Leo, which will turn things around for you.

While you wait for a visit from Jupiter, a good astrologer will offer advice on remedies and actions that you can use to make small manageable changes in your life to bring about positive changes now.


Maybe your feeling lonely or unappreciated in your job and are looking for a road-map.

That’s how Susan, a 32-year-old working at a non-profit in Washington, D.C., felt.

She was out drinking four or five times a week because she was feeling stuck. As such, she consulted with an astrologer. Susan discovered that fortune bringing Jupiter would move into her zodiac sign of Leo in a year’s time and stay for one year.

She was advised that if she would clear out clutter in her life she would reap rewards. Because of that, Susan spent the next year preparing for and making room for Jupiter in her life.

What did she do? She started staying home more, clearing out what she didn’t need, and she started cooking for herself, applying or jobs and going on more dates. She distanced herself from people that didn’t have good energy when she spent time with them and that “significantly helped.”

When Jupiter entered Leo in July 16, 2014, she was offered a new job and she met the man that she eventually married. According to Susan, her life changed dramatically and partly it was because she had a belief in something that made it happen but she followed what the astrologer advised so some of the changes are based on belief.

Are you facing a crisis? Do you need explanations and next steps?

That’s where Jamie, a long-time client and student of Barry, says she found herself after her mother was diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer, and the man she was in love with choose another woman. She was so distraught with confusion that her business started to tank.

She says “I needed someone to tell me that the future was going to be okay and that there’s a karmic reason for all of this madness! I needed a spiritual upliftment. I was looking for a reason for the struggle. A ‘why.’ My heartache was so raw, so palpable you could see me wearing it day after day and I needed to understand so I could fix it, and fix me. I couldn’t understand it. I’m a good person. I work really hard. I love – I’m peaceful and there’s no reason for me not to be successful. I felt that there had to be clues somewhere. I was missing something and as a seeker, a researcher, I’d done and tried most everything to get my life on track and I felt that the answers had to be in the stars. There had to be clues in my chart. So, I turned to Barry and I’ve been slowly able to turn my life around and gain positive perspective and take back my life. This isn’t hokey work. It’s inner-self work, it’s about really diving deep for me and taking back control, dropping my ego, seeking guidance that I could realistically – logically accept and follow and truly, now I’m going with the flow and ‘following the stars.’ I was a true skeptic at first – coming from a background in science and I wanted to test this astrology stuff out – it works and it’s changed my life for the better. I was at my rock-bottom and almost ready to check out – that’s how bad it was for me. Vedic astrology was my ‘last-ditch’ effort to seek understanding and it gave me back my power.”

“I’ve found Barry’s classes to be quite useful and profound. They are affordable and specific to the subject being taught. He sees deeply into what he teaches, has good instincts and is insightful when looking at our charts in class. He willingly shares his expansive knowledge whenever we have questions. Barry is a gifted teacher. He is kind, generous, and skillful. Having access to his classes is good fortune.”

As a current student at SJC and having taking shelter under the umbrella of one of Barry’s Jyotish Guru’s Pundit Sanjay Rath, I approach Barry as a senior mentor to help solidify what often seems abstract and difficult to comprehend. His ability to transfer the Jyotish subject matter into a translation that is accessible and in the “parlance of our times” certainly makes the information digestible and less daunting. One must also appreciate and admire the mature psychological, philosophical, and spiritual introspection that is served up right alongside the often arduous Jyotish climb – Barry has done those hard miles.”
