A Precedent Setting Astrological Conjunction!
Hello fellow-Astrology loversPlease join your Jyotish Star Editor, and me, in Costa Mesa, California in October.
The International Society for Astrological Research has invited the American College of Vedic Astrology to co-sponsor, and provide a Jyotish track for their “Forecasting” Symposium. Christina Collins and I have been selected to present on Jyotish predictive techniques, along with Chakrapani Ullal, William Levacy, Dennis Harness, Komilla Sutton, Sam Geppi, Edith Hathaway and Joni Patry.
The symposium “The Power of Forecasting – Change; Choices; Vision” will be held October 13 – 17, 2016, at the Hilton Orange County in Costa Mesa, California. You should see the excellent planetary positions at that time: there is a full Moon, aspected by *exalted Mercury* and Jupiter; Mars is in Sagittarius; and Venus is with Saturn! This seems to me to be the perfect recipe for an intellectually and spiritually enlightening, philosophically stimulating, meaningful and useful learning experience.
Conferences like these are really labors of love for the organizers. They exist to bring people together to learn Astrology – yes. But they also serve the very important function of creating a sangha where students and practitioners can actually meet face-to-face and create relationships with each other. Something happens at a live conference which can really add to the quality of your life.
This particular symposium confines itself to the subject of prediction. I think this subject is one of the reasons most of us study Jyotish – to have a better idea of what lies ahead. I predict that this will be a world-class event, that it will improve your understanding of Jyotish, and that you will make new friends and have a fabulous experience there!
Here is the link: isarastrology.org/2016ISAR. The full list of the 9 Jyotish speakers may not have been added yet – but will be very soon. There is an Early Bird discount registration before 2/15/16 – so please consider this investment in your own education as soon as you can.
This is a very exciting conjunction between the principles of Western Astrology, and of Jyotish!
We hope you will be able to join us. With kindest regards, and very best wishes,
Charlotte Benson (Jyoti Devi)
