Summer Season


The Summer season marks a time of new energy and enthusiasm for the American College of Vedic Astrology (ACVA). The National Ayurvedic Medical Association (NAMA) held its annual event in Seattle. On the bayous of New Orleans, several years of planning finally bore fruit for the
United Astrology Conference (UAC) of which ACVA and CVA were major supporting organizations.

The UAC conference marked a time when all forms of astrology, both East and West, come together to share and appreciate their rich heritages and vast repositories of knowledge.

ACVA took UAC as an opportunity to recognize and award many people who have contributed to the field of Vedic astrology.

Astro Article - The Elements

By Angela Pennington

During my first module at ACVA, I remember the instructors stressing the importance of taking time to memorize, and learn the basics. This was great advice. Over time, I’ve learned the fundamentals need to be more than keywords. They need to become part of us. In the beginning we memorize flash cards. In order to shift from intellectual understanding to pure knowledge it’s important to contemplate and meditate the concepts and rules handed down throughout the ages. Personally, I have discovered all roads lead back to the elements. Below, please find the results of my contemplations regarding each element and how it relates to the signs and planets.


Ether is a medium that fills the spaces where nothing exists. Its not something we can reach out and touch, yet its all around us, we draw upon it to create. Scientists study ether in an effort to understand the movement of light, while spiritual people draw light through ether to connect with God. The Universe is infinite, therefor so is ether. Expansive, uniting, quiet and unquestioning. Lord Jupiter is ether. He is expansive, teaches us how to move our minds higher and create. Through him, we learn to value sacred sounds and words. We gain wisdom, look inward and develop Read Complete Article

Astro Article - Natal Panchanga:

By Rhonda Busby

Panchanga is one of the factors of muhurta, which is used to select an auspicious time to start an activity or event. The panchanga at the time of birth describes the energies of one’s life and how they may be used most auspiciously. Panchanga is Sanskrit for five limbs: pancha = five and anga = limbs.

Panchanga is the five ways that celestial light influences the matter of the world:

Thus, Sun (spirit) and Moon (matter) combine and incarnate through the five elements of matter to create our world and everything in it, including us. The panchanga is a refinement of how this is done, and shows the manifestation of our present incarnation. Panchanga consists of: Read Complete Article
