This is an invitation to enroll on my very special Varga Course:
The Vargas are the Divisional Charts of Vedic Astrology.
Each Varga makes a very special and uniquely, awesomely powerful declaration about a particular area of your life.
In fact, my Vargas Course is one of several wonderful options of more advanced Vedic astrology Courses, which build on my Vedic Astrology Foundation Course. So, you do need to know just the basics of Vedic Astrology in order to study the Vargas.
A. The great benefits of my approach to teaching Vedic Astrology are as follows:
1. Individual and Caring: You get individual caring tuition.
2. Vedic-Western Crossover: You can study this Vedic Astrology Varga Course combined with your Western Astrology if you wish (My western astrology emphasis is psychodynamic and evolutionary), or you can study the Vargas from the standpoint of your Vedic Astrology only.
3. It’s learned. I have studied Vedic Astrology extensively and vastly. I have five university degrees. I have completed a five-year field study: this was an Ethnography: a social-anthropological field study of individuals, Communities and Institutions in connection with spiritual forms new to the modern West, in areas of Hinduism, Buddhism, paganism, shamanism and Utopian Community. I run a Healing Centre in the West of Ireland with my partner Maggie Pashley from where we also offer very many Healings, Courses and Readings worldwide.
4. Grounded and Genuine: In all my course, you focus on two charts, yours and mine, and that way, the discussion is genuine and caring.
5. Healing/Empowering: My astrology readings and courses are never just formula: they are geared to Healing and Empowerment potentials and possibilities.
B. The Vargas – Two Case Examples:
I want first of all, to start off this post about my Varga Course by sharing with you two case examples, so as to give you a very human idea of the great power of these Vedic Astrology Varga charts.
We’ll be looking later on at the particular Varga Chart I have chosen to focus on in this Blog, which is the D12 Dwadashamsha chart. The D12 chart shows us the effect in our lives of our Ancestors and related karmas.
But first of all, please read these two case examples graphically and wonderfully show the power of the Varga charts, what they can so clearly tell you about your life in the special life-are covered by each Varga chart, and why it’s so good to study my Vargas course.
So, please just absorb the power of the examples at this stage. For more detail, you can see later on, in Sections F and G, below, a bit of the deeper information of how the Varga chart is constructed, and who the Varga deities are, and what the energies of these Deities are in your life, etc.
So, these case examples are the D12 Varga Chart of two individuals, a man and a woman: they show the great value of the D12 Dwadashamsha Varga Chart for perception, as with all the Vargas, for healing and Empowerment.
B1. Varga Case Example 1: D12 Dwadashamsha chart of a man:
So, what was the clear guidance this guy was given from his D12 Dwadashamsha Varga Chart of the effect of Ancestors in our life. Looking at Moon conjunct Ketu south Node in his D12 Varga chart 2nd House, the crucial message is that the issue of value and mothering in his life will be completely destroyed. And so, there is sound help in having this perception. And, also, it gives him the opportunity to do the work to get the needed healing of the karma, as well as empower himself.
Note that the critical planets (the chief planets of study) in the D12 Varga chart are the Nodes of the Moon: Rahu North Node and Ketu South Node.
His Mars is well-placed in the first house of his D12 chart, and so emphasis on Mars qualities and Men’s Work should go well. Mars is conjunct Chiron in his D1 Rashi chart.
Note the intuitive energy of Jupiter and Mercury in this Varga 12th House.
Note that the Sun is shown actually emboldened in this Shri Jyoti Star Varga chart. This means that his Sun is Vargottoma: in the same sign in the Varga chart as in the rashi/birth chart, and this means that he will be sent very special soul messages throughout his life to heal his Sun, which is of course deeply Fallen in Vedic Libra.
Here is a statement from Kala Vedic software of his D12 Deities. For the energy of each of the D12 deities, see below:
Note that this man’s Jupiter, Sun and Rahu are in Ganesha-ruled Dwadashamsha, indicating positive supportive input from his ancestry, in the nature and manifestation of these planets in his present life.
Note that this man’s Mercury and Ascendant/Lagna are in Dwadashamsha ruled over by Yama the God of Death, and thus there would be problems of an inherited ancestral nature and need for restraint and hard learning in his handling of them, and the challenge of perfecting the qualities of these planets in preparation for death.
B2. Varga Case Example 2: D12 Dwadashamsha chart of a Woman:
So, the clear guidance this woman was given from her D12 Dwadashamsha Varga chat is that Ketu in her 12th House means that she will have a script from her ancestors of engaging in drain or even addiction.
And with Sun conjunct Saturn in her D12 Varga chart, her father will be a total block to her valuing herself and expressing herself.
The Sun-Saturn conjunction is in Vedic Taurus, so it will strike at body issues. She is therefore called to heal the effects of her Father heredity in terms of body image and block to expression of ‘King of her Kingdom issues; that the Sun should be able to express in a life. And she must beware draining activities such as surfing the internet or repetitive group activities (the conjunction is in 11th House). And it will block her gains until she learns to heal and empower herself, and stop the drain.
Here is a statement of her D12 Deities (see below for the deities’ natures):
C. What is Vedic Astrology? And what do the Varga Charts contribute?
Vedic Astrology is the Astrology heritage of India. Indeed, it is vast, and it takes more than one life time to study Vedic Astrology.
The Sidereal Zodiac: Please note that Vedic Astrology uses a different 12-sign zodiac from western astrology, so your planets will often be described as being in different signs. This is because the sidereal zodiac of Vedic astrology is fixed: it is anchored to a fixed star as a statement of the Eternal, whereas the tropical zodiac of western astrology is moving: it moves a degree every 72 years and its start point is that point in the heavens that the Sun occupies on the first day of Spring, and because it is solar it is ‘ego astrology’ The scope of Vedic Astrology is immensely vaster than egoic western astrology. At the present the two zodiacs are 24 degrees apart.
The Lunar Zodiac: Additionally, please note that Vedic astrology also employs an even more ancient zodiac: the immeasurably powerful lunar zodiac of 27 signs, that depicts our realities in a magical and dream time way that is pre-solar, pre-logical and pre-linear, and is hugely accurate, powerful and meaningful. These lunar signs are called ‘Nakshatras’. The positions of the lunar signs were more easily visible to ancient astrologers because they are quite simply the position of the Moon in the heavens on each of the 27 days the Moon takes to orbit the Earth. Because the lunar signs are so ancient, they are powerful and magical and pre-rational, and each of them has a power animal that can be used for many purposes of understanding, including the identification of the best marriage partner for you.
Love Astrology: The Lunar Sign or Nakshatra that your Moon falls in in your Vedic natal chart is the basis for the ancient and powerfully accurate Vedic Astrology of love and relationships. You can order from me a special report on your Love and Relationships Astrology. Each Nakshatra has a power animal. The power animal of the same species but the opposite gender to your own is your ideal sexual partner, however, taking the wider issues of relationship, overall compatibility is often best with another Lunar Sign.
D. So, lets’ now Look at another very special feature unique to Vedic Astrology: the Varga Charts of Vedic Astrology. This is the special focus of this Blog post:
The Varga Charts or Divisional Charts are each a supreme statement about a very special and defined area of your life.
They are derived from the more General Vedic Astrology birth chart which is called the ‘Rashi Chart’.
What the Varga charts declare about your life and destiny, your personality and future, can be so eye-opening. It can be life-changing. It offers you the chance, should you decide to take it, of healing and empowering your life
And so, I invite you to enroll on my Varga Course.
Prerequisite: Please note that you do need to know the basics of Vedic Astrology first in order to be able to study the Vargas.
So, if you do need to encompass the Vedic Astrology basics first, enroll on my Vedic Astrology Foundation Course Master Vedic Astrology. See: www.mastervedicastrology.com
E. There are three important things to realize about the interpretation of each Varga chart:
A. Each Varga represents a different and specially-defined area of life.
B. In each Varga, a planet will have different dignity based on is friendship with its sign ruler, so the different planets will make a more or less powerful contribution to your special area of life declared by the Varga chart that you are studying, than that planet will for your life in general.
C. In each Varga, a planet will have ruling deity, and knowing the deity energy associated with your planet in the special area of life declared by the Varga chart, is often so special and so uniquely eye-opening.
F. So, what areas of life do the Varga Charts cover?
SHODAHSA VARGA GROUPINGS:
This Table shows brief indication about each Varga, its number, name, key house, key planet and area of life. The 16 main Varga charts are shown here, the Shodasha Vargas. And they are presented in five groupings:

5-Reality of What We Can Manage:
D60 Shastiamsa Twelfth House All Planets
Confirmation of Everything, Accrued Karma, What One Can achieve in this life. D60 sets the limits, e.g.: if D60 2nd bhava is bad, then 2nd bhava can only get so good in any Varga, including D1 Rashi.
F. The four D12 Dwadashamsha Deities:
The four Dwadashamsha Deities are as follows:
Haya (or Sarpa/Serpent).
They rule over one division each, infusing each division with the qualities of their particular powerful spiritual nature.
Who are these deities?
Ganesha and Ashwin Dwadashamashas are benefic:
If you have a planet in a Ganesha sector of your D12 Dvadasamsa chart, that planet will be blessed, because the legacy of your ancestors will lead to initiation of new tasks, spiritual knowledge, and destruction of obstacles on your path of material and spiritual development. Your ancestors will promote encouragement, protection and education to a planet here.
If you have a planet in the Asvins sectors of your Dwadashamsha chart, because these are the Divine Horsemen, the Divine physicians, their nature is to bring fast healing. situations will arise in your life needing healing resources, methods and consciousness This indicates a nurturing and caring legacy from your ancestors, a benefic influence from your parents/ancestry.
Yama and Sarpa Dwadashamashas are more malefic in nature:
Yama is the god of death who leads the disembodied souls into one of the darker or brighter regions of the astral world according to each individual’s merit. If you have a planet occupying one of his sectors in your Dwadashamsha chart, there will be issues of control and restraint and discipline, and of preparation for death around the nature of that planet.
If you have a planet in Sarpa, Haya, or Hayagriva Sectors of your D12 chart, this means that a ‘serpent energy’ or ‘death and rebirth’ quality will apply to the affairs of that planet in your life. knowledge and wisdom will be used to overcomes demonic or dark forces, and thus give peace and prosperity. knowledge and understanding will be needed to overcome difficulties or realize the knowledge and understanding obtained, even after all else is left behind. the passing of time and manifestation of unwanted or uncalled for karmic reactions, which are activated by the time factor, will be an issue to be dealt with, so as to manifest higher residual knowledge during the passage of our life.
So, I hope you are satisfied as to the supreme benefit of learning to read the Vargas, the divisional charts of Vedic Astrology – and also of the need to link these to Healing and Empowerment rather than leaving them as just recitation of arid formula????
I look forward to working with you
