Happy 2016 To Everyone from the Jyotish Star e-magazine!
We feel very pleased to announce that the 2016 Jyotish Vashista title goes to astrologer Ronnie Gale Dreyer of New York, in recognition for her accomplishment of achieving a Master of Arts in South Asian Languages and Cultures from Columbia University where she studied both Sanskrit and Hindi. You will surely be inspired when reading her interview.
Our big planetary news for January centers on the nodes of the Moon changing signs on January 8th, and Rahu joining Jupiter in conjunction in Leo. Because Jupiter from Leo aspects its own sign of Sagittarius, and because Jupiter/Rahu transits 6th from the sign Pisces, if you have Pisces rising, moon or sun, and depending upon the dasa in operation at the time, you could receive great financial rewards. As the aspect of Saturn also falls on the house of Leo, stabilizing this yoga, we will see a great many effects and will comment on them with the spring annual varshaphal.
Jyoti Devi (Charlotte Benson) begins the New Year with her new series on the Sun as it transits through each Nakshatra. A wonderful treat for both beginning and established students. So Happy Birthday to our Mula and Purva Ashada readers!
Next month, February 2016, look forward to our interview with financial astrologer Barry Rosen of Fairfield, Iowa.
Wishing you all a Wonderful 2016!
