This class, taught over two Saturdays by Jean Wetzel, will be a very simple and brief introduction to the ancient astrology of India, known as jyotish. We will discuss the basics of looking at a North Indian astrological birth chart, as well as looking at some charts of famous people as models for interpretation. Primary topics will be astrological signs, houses, and planets and how to assess strengths and weaknesses in an individual’s chart.
The text book for the class will be “Vedic Astrology: Simply Put”, by William Levacy. It can be purchased through Amazon or any other online retailer. (There will not be any books available at Awakening. Please purchase your book ahead of time.)
For those who would like to dive deeper into to the topic “Light on Life” by Hart de Fouw is suggested reading.
