Hi all

First I want to wish all of you continuing good health and let's pray that testing increases, and new cases of corona virus subside. We are living in very strange times, and although many astrologers including myself have been talking about the craziness February and March, and the rest of the year as well for quite a while now I don't think anyone thought about something like this, so please all just don't overreact, since fear will overtake you, just pay attention to guidelines in your city, state and country, and go to the website for  Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for updated information even if you do not live in the U.S. Just remember to use hand sanitizer and 

Even though the Beginning Jyotisa (Indian Astrology) classes are simultaneously webinars there are still those of you who like doing it in person, and even though the in person attendance is usually 10 or less I have still decided to move the group to Saturday April 18 hoping by then there is more comfort in gathering in a small group. But if by then that is still not possible, it will be done as a webinar since I do not want to move beginning classes further back. I will be starting advanced elective classes shortly since those will be exclusively online and we can begin sooner rather than later.  So please scroll down below to register for Jyotisa classes and if you are already registered you have received the information about the classes already. Please do register since choosing a place to conduct classes depends on who is registered with payment. 

If for some reason you are registered and did not get that email about moving classes, please let me know. 

I am still aiming to send out the March 2020 News and Views since there is just more and more information each day. And yes still working on creating a podcast and still resisting a Youtube channel.   If you wish to read or re-read the information from February News and Views. You can read the February newsletter in its entirety HERE

You can still order the recordings (audio and audio-visual) of the 2020 Sensitive Degrees Workshop , which goes over this amazing year filled with so many different planetary phenomena. If you listen to the recording I said again and again that February and March would be very tumultuous. Of course many astrologers who said the same thing for the same reasons, were not able to pinpoint that we would have a virus that would impact the market. But we did pinpoint dates, so this virus, markets declining coupled with the Mars retrograding in the Fall and Mercury stationing direct on Election Day means a very bumpy ride ahead. Since we are into the third month of the year the price has been reduced. SCROLL DOWN TO PURCHASE.

If you wish to book a reading, you can make payment to the left and I will reach out to you with available dates and times. My next availability begins March 25 for phone or skype. After April 1 for in-person.  

Also remember that you can get notices from me through   Twitter,   Facebook and   Instagram. Just sign up. And if your friends wish to subscribe to this newsletter they can go to  my Website and sign up. You can also get up to date information about workshops, appearances, etc., I hope to have that site updated soon. 

And please remember that by staying subscribed to this newsletter, in addition to monthly newsletters about planetary weather, you will also get separate newsletters about horoscope sales, classes, webinars, etc., so if you are not interested in learning astrology, but do want to read the news each month, please do not unsubscribe, just delete the advertisements when they arrive. 

All good wishes 

Beginning Jyotisa (Indian astrology) Workshop in
New York City/ Simultaneous Webinar/

Saturday April 18, 2020. 10:00 AM-4:00 PM EDT

Fee: $80 through April 1, 2020. 
$90 April 2-10.
$95 April 11 and after

Registration ends at end of the day April 16. At that time there may be place for you in person, but definitely on-line. 
You MUST pre-register for this class to ensure space either in-person or online.

This workshop will serve as the first workshop in the Beginning Level I Jyotish (Indian astrology) series. You can take this workshop and then sign up for the course or just come as a standalone. If you sign up for the entire series you will thoroughly learn Jyotisa and even some Sanskrit. Also you will be qualified to take ACVA Certification Level I, if you choose. The class will consist of a one-day weekend workshop every 4-6 weeks. Each workshop will be the equivalent of three 1 1/2 hour classes. In between workshops there will also be one or two review webinars. This schedule will be presented in the next few weeks.  You only have to commit to this workshop to see if you wish to continue. 

There will be opportunities to read supplemental material, do assignments, and review what we learned, but that is up to you. A book list will be provided once you register. The workshop will take place on the Upper West Side in New York City, and will be simulcast as a webinar, so that you can attend wherever you are. And if you cannot be present, or you can only do part of the workshop, you will receive an audio-visual presentation, audio MP3, and extensive handouts. 

This class is appropriate for those who are starting at the beginning, or for those who have studied with me, or have learned in the past, and want to refresh your knowledge. We will start with the basics of the chart, so that you have all the tools you need to begin to tackle chart interpretation. 

History and Development of Jyotisa
Concept of Karma and how it applies to Jyotisa
Overview of Naksatras (Moon Mansions), and Tithis (Lunar Days)
Indian sidereal zodiac; ayanamsa, 
Drawing the chart (North v. South Indian)
Introduction to planets and Lunar Nodes

Topics for future classes in Level I: Signs, Houses, Aspects, Yogas, Nakshatras, Navamsha, Dashas, Transits, Keys to Chart Interpretation and Forecasting. 

It is important to register as early as possible since the space will be limited. You can register below through April 1 at the early bird rate of $80.

Please email me if you need more clarification. 

PURCHASE RECORDINGS FOR  2020 Sensitive Degrees: Stations, Eclipses, Ingresses, and Aspects
Presented on December 8. 

You will receive the 5 hour audio recording (MP3), audio-visual recording (MP4), 78 page handout in power point and pdf. All from the point of view of tropical and sidereal (Vedic) zodiacs.  Whew!!!   Fee: $55 reduced from $65.  

Some (but not all) planetary signatures we will cover are as follows:

Lunations  (New and Full Moons) 

Seven eclipses.   There are six eclipses in the calendar year of 2020, but since the one on December 26 is part of the pair that includes the one on January 10, we will actually look at seven of them as follows: 

Dec. 26, 2019. Solar Eclipse 
Jan. 10, 2020 Lunar Eclipse 
June 5, 2020 Lunar Eclipse
June 21, 2020 Solar Eclipse 
July 5, 2020 Lunar Eclipse 
N ov. 30, 2020 Lunar eclipse, 
Dec. 14, 2020 Solar Eclipse            

Planetary Stations.  Annual retrograde cycles of Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto. Venus and Mars retrograde this year. Mars will be in tropical Aries for six months. Whew!. and it will straddle between sidereal Pisces and Aries for eight months. That is because of the retrograde Mars. On Election Day 2020 when we vote for US President, Mercury stations direct, exactly what it did on Election Day 2000 when there was no decision in Bush v. Gore. 


Aspects. Some of the more important aspects for 2020 are as follows.


Jan. 8, 2020. Jupiter-Ketu (South Node) conjunction; Jan. 12, 2020. Saturn-Pluto conjunction; Feb. 25, 2020. Mars-South Node (Ketu) conjunction; April 5, June 30, Nov. 12, 2020. Jupiter-Pluto conjunction; Dec. 21, 2020. Jupiter-Saturn conjunction.


Tropical Ingresses. Jupiter will be in Capricorn and Aquarius. Saturn moves into Aquarius. The Nodes move into Gemini and Sagittarius. 


Sidereal Ingresses. Jupiter will be in Sagittarius and Capricorn. Saturn moves into Capricorn. Pluto enters Capricorn. The Nodes move into Taurus and Scorpio. We will go over how these planetary signatures affect each Ascendant.
