February Webinar:

Christina Collins

February 13, 2010
Noon, EST

"Compatibility" - 90 minutes

Matching charts for potentially harmonious connections (or disconnects) between two or more individuals. Christina will illustrate the concepts of compatibility in: Love / Marriage relationships, Family relationships and Business relationships.

Initially, we identity and investigate each person's natal horoscope regarding their individual tendencies and how they personally relate regarding relationship(s). Then, we compare the horoscopes to evaluate if it is a Love connection, a Marriage connection (or both). For business the parameters are similar, yet more emphasis on the houses of business, and the Kuta Agreements focus on wealth of assets and property rather than on growth of family
or children. The Navamsa is considered in both, while in Marriage we work with the Saptamsa (children) and in Business comparing, we work more with the Dashamsa -the 7th and 10th harmonic charts.

April Webinar:

Gary Gomes

"The Use of Karakas in Chart interpretation" - 90 minutes

Using the Chara karakas (significators) in standard chart interpretation and using Rasi aspects as well will expand your chart interpretation flexibility and also allows you to examine the chart with more depth. Also, these can be used in the Navamsa to gain more details about the chart.

Light Notes from Editor Christina Collins


When a wheel squeaks….it gives you auditory advice that it needs…assistance … in the wheel's case, oil.

Paralleled, if a country needs help, sometimes, its very foundation cracks - making such a crashing noise that its dramatic cry for help rebounds around the world.

Karma, the law of action, "what goes out - returns", on the surface, an earthquake of the 7.0 magnitude that occurred Tuesday, January 12th in Haiti may appear to some, as simply an extension of the karma that this poor struggling nation has, and or the "cross" they have to bear.

However, perhaps in the long run, this is "good," karma - that in the wake of dramatic suffering - the aid that pours in for both healing and rebuilding will create stronger and more stable realities, along with education and rebuilding for better lives for all concerned, even amidst the horrors and the sorrows, of those left behind. Ever remembering - Read the complete February Light Notes

Charlotte: Christina, when did you begin to specialize in chart comparison studies?

Christina: Well, initially, my grandfather would have me compare the charts of my brothers and sister to help me understand a couple of different areas.

Charlotte: And what were those?

Christina: First of all to see why we get along …or why we didn't get along. Secondly, to understand the situation that there are similar trends in planetary positions - or what we now call

New Student's Helpful Study Hints

Welcome new students! I hope you are excited about starting school, it's a busy time. Jyotish stretchs as wide and deep as the great mystery itself. Organizing this ancient knowledge quickly and effciently becomes the first test as a new student. Early on, you'll recognize the importance of tracking large amounts of study notes and class materials.

Carving out uninterrupted study time on a regular basis creates a challenge. It may take a few weeks to find our personal groove. Most students agree, memory retention is improved with daily study.

Monthly Yoga Tips

February Yoga Tip

Ashwa Sanchalanasana - Equestrian Pose:

Surya Namaskara, the practice of Sun Salutations is made of 12 postures, as each is dedicated to a different constellation of the zodiac, these represent the form. The practice generates prana and the rhythm and cycles of nature are reflected in the number of postures. One round or a right and left side (24 postures) are the hours in a day or a cycle of the sun. Equestrian Pose is the fourth and ninth posture in the series. Ashwa means horse and Sanchalasana is rider posture. Read Complete - February Yoga Tip
