Hi all
Welcome to those of you who are newly subscribed and welcome back to those of you who are present subscribers. 

Stay tuned for the January newsletter this weekend but till then...

THE VERDICT IS IN. The 2019 Sensitive Degrees webinar, which went on for almost four hours, was a success, and you can purchase the audio-visual (mp4), audio (mp3 podcast), and 50 plus page handouts. Scroll down to make payment. The webinar consisted of handouts of 2019 lunations, eclipses, retrogrades, ingresses, and also going over how all these will work in the world and in your charts. We will discuss Jupiter-Neptune square occurring three times, Saturn-Ketu conjunction occurring three times, and how the Saturn and Pluto nearing its exact conjunction in 2020 are tracking the eclipses this year. 

This is definitely a year of things crescendoing so that in 2020 we will experience Saturn and Pluto conjunction, followed by Jupiter hitting those planets as well. But this year is an interesting prelude, with dynamic events in itself, and remember the webinar will be presented from tropical and sidereal (Vedic) so that we can all focus on planetary configurations, even more than the zodiacal signs. We also did an overview of how these celestial occurrences affect your rising sign whichever that is and whichever system you use. If you do not know your rising sign, you can look at it from your sun sign.

If you wish to sign up for a reading, you can do that by clicking to the left. Prices will be going up February 1st so you might want to purchase now.

Also remember that you can get notices from me through Twitter   and Facebook .  Just sign up.  New beginning and advanced Jyotisa classes will begin in the new year so look for the new schedule. Ask about individual tutoring, especially towards ACVA certification.
Check the links below under quick links for the 10% discount coupon on recordings from some of the Vedic Conferences. 

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

Time again for the annual 

2019 Sensitive Degrees Workshop: Stations, Eclipses, Ingresses, and Aspects

Four hour workshop. Within 48 hours of ordering, you will get 

complete handouts with 2019 charts and tables, showing degrees and dates to watch in the upcoming year along with audio mp3, and audio-visual mp4. As usual, these are from the point of view of both  tropical and Indian (sidereal) astrology. 
There will also be a separate recording and handout explaining the technical and theoretical basis for things like eclipses and retrogrades, since many of you have already heard this. Instead we will dive straight into the lunations, eclipses, retrogrades, aspects, and ingresses. Some (but not all) planetary signatures covered as follows:
  • Lunations (New and Full Moons)
  • Eclipses.  January 5 (6), January 21, July 2, July 16, December 26 (and the one on January 10, 2020).  All the eclipses are part of the 18 year Saros cycle, and, except for the one on January 5 (6), part of the 19 year Metonic cycle. (If you heard my NCGR Eclipse webinar or attended my Philadelphia talk, some of the information will be repeated but only on eclipses.)
  • Planetary Stations.  Annual retrograde cycles of Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto. (Stations of Saturn and Pluto especially important because they are close to eclipses) 
  • Aspects.  Some of the more important aspects for 2019 are as follows.
  • Jupiter square Neptune on January 13, June 16, and September 21.
  • Saturn and Pluto will not be conjunct until January 12, 2020, but they will be moving close to each other, and will be joined by Jupiter in 2020, so their positions will be looked at. 
  • Saturn-Ketu (South Node) conjunction occurs three times because Saturn is retrograde: April 30, July 4, September 28. Since  in Indian astrology Ketu, or South Node, takes on the qualities of Mars, so it is like having a Saturn-Mars conjunction.  
  • Pluto-Ketu (South Node) April 4. Like having a Pluto-Mars conjunction.  and more.
  • Tropical Ingresses. This year Uranus makes definitive entrance into Taurus on March 6, 2019. Jupiter will be in Sagittarius all year until December 2 when it moves into Capricorn.   
  • Sidereal Ingresses. The Nodes move into Gemini (Rahu-North Node) and Sagittarius (Ketu-South Node) on March 23. Jupiter is presently in Scorpio. It moves into Sagittarius on March 23 and retrogrades back into Scorpio on April 25, and moves definitively into Sagittarius on November 4. 
  • And so much more.
