Dharma & Life Purpose

You will learn:

  • The 4 astrology houses that are at least as important as the 10th house in career, (if not more important). But you need to know how to analyze these houses strategically, not just haphazardly. And you must avoid at all costs any of the “good / bad” assertions.
  • “For the career we look at the 10th house, right?” – Wrong. that is way too simplistic. Learn why this is one of the biggest mistakes astrologers make when they try to analyze peoples career.
  • Gain a lifetime of confidence in one weekend. That might sound like a bold claim, but you will see case study after case study of famous people, normal people all transitioning from being totally lost to becoming totally “found”. This is not only good for astrologers, it is good for you, if you are feeling lost in your life. This will show you why and when things might change.
  • How to strategically analyze the most important planets for anyone’s career, life purpose and souls awakening. These four planets all conspire to bring our life into focus. Our swadharma is a higher octave of our identity. That’s why in order to rise in life publicly we must elevate our spiritual awareness an understanding of our self.
  • The crucial timing factors, both through the dashas, and the transits in the Sky, that always compel us to change and get more aligned. By the way, we are always feeling these pressures in one way or another, including right now. At any given time we are being challenged to know ourselves better and share it with the world .
  • I will analyze every house and planet as a contributing factor to our life purpose and Swadharma. You must understand this and refer a person back to it in every astrology reading. For professional astrologers or experienced students, you are missing this point in your readings. Never assume that Venus is just about “relationships”, for example. You must be able to see those things and all things in a higher context of our expressed life purpose.
  • How to use the appropriate harmonic charts to see skills and tendencies in our career and purpose, but also to analyze and understand the timing of when those great opportunities will manifest.
  • If you are an astrologer, you can bury the competition with your specific career readings after taking this course. You will be able to add enormous nuance to any reading situation.
  • You can take people out of their simplistic ideas like “I’m not sure what I should be doing, what does astrology say” statements and into the deeper reasons why they are lost and what they can do about it right now.
  • So much more!

  1. 5

    Excellent guide to understanding your own and others paths in this life … and changing course/direction when we can see we are spiritually ‘off-track’ – this is a great tool for rectifying your True path (SwaDharma) !

  2. Define, Refine and Shine!


    This course, like many of the weekend mini-courses, has brought much illumination and support for the understanding of Career, Dharma and Life Purpose. I especially enjoyed the inclusion of a co-host, the conversation back and forth was enjoyable and realistic. Elise, you are a great power in your own right to reckon with, thank you for your inputs and individual offerings! Sam, the connection of Jyotish with your own path and the ongoing education helps to connect the dots and brings greater understanding of what we learned in our foundation courses. I love listening through your stories! It is invaluable to participate in these focused courses for those beginning or continuing their Jyotish education. My own growth and offerings are infinitely enhanced by what happens during these weekends. Thank you very much 🌟🌟🌟🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟

  3. Great Insight on Career and Purpose


    Sam spends a lot of time discussing the nature of career and how it is so much more than just looking at the tenth house. There’s a lot more than astrology here; it’s a valuable understanding of how our actions and purpose unfold in our life and what can get them tangled up. And there are also some wonderful case studies from his own clients that really help to illustrate these principles. Thank you Sam!

  4. always 100% value 100% of the time!


    another GREAT weekend with sam full of insights & inspiration! i was able to see so clearly how alive the difference between dharma & career are in my chart, which is, of course, the best tool for being able to see it in the charts of clients & thus support them on their journey. now i’ve got one more sublime tool in my toolbox! so much gratitude to sam & elise for sharing their wisdom so articulately!

  5. Fantastic course


    This course was a great deep dive into understanding the way the Dharma and Artha houses work together in the manifestation of a career. I’m looking forward to revisiting the material again, as well as the Q and A session next weekend. Thank you, Sam and Elise!

  6. Unveiling the secrets of Dharma


    I really enjoyed this honest, open and well structured mini class on Dharma and Career by Sam Geppi. This is my first course from Sam and I was totally amazed of how he unveils secrets and true meanings of many concepts in Astrology. Plus the vivacious format of conversating with his student Elise, was making it more interesting, as they shared information on consulting people, personal experiences and examples of real cases. Very grateful for this valuable information. Thank you Sam!

  7. Aha!!!


    Wow, Sam! This course was presented in such a way that I had realization after realization about my purpose, how it relates to my career and also the tendencies I have in my life not to enjoy the fruits (kama houses not being supported). I have such clarity on how to analyze a chart and find purpose and meaning. Highly recommend for jyotishi’s and enthusiasts alike. Thank you.

  8. Easy to Digest - Powerful Insights - So Much Detail


    As always, Sam Geppi brings his insights on Vedic Astrology to those who seek to understand the complex in a way that is applicable. I had more than one “ahhhh, I see” moment this week. Elise shared insights on dasa timings that had me nodding my head like “of course it was that transit” – pretty great to see it in action. Thank you both for the valuable information and insights!

  9. 5

    This is truly a great course! So much information and insight expressed in a clear and concise way. Sam has the ability to take challenging concepts and explain them in a way that can be used in your everyday life as well as for your clients. And he has a great sense of humor and sharp wit! Thank you Sam and Elise for all your insight,

  10. Advice for life direction


    In this course Sam explains how to give precise career advice and what does it really means .

    Our career is not just about our job, about getting money or influence to live any life – but a very unique one, one that keeps us inspired. Here you will learn how to read natal chart in very specific way and explain it for people so that they can see beyond traps that can occur in career field, and why they occur as well.

    The manual is very helpful because of real life examples explained in detail, and very systemic.
    Course is great for individuals to clear up some questions you may have about yourself, and If you are working with clients this course is a must!

  11. Life purpose


    Great course, especially on the significance of the journey of the soul through the houses. Deep, inspired and insightful approach.
    Thank you

  12. Deeeep insights


    Sam and Alice did a really great job in explaining the life area of dharma, life purpose and career and how it is all connected and seen in Vedic Astrology. I appreciate your given insights in your daily consultation practice and how to “read between the lines” to understand the real problem of the client. Thank you so much for this and the deep insights and aha moments I had during this course. I do definitely recommend this course to everyone who is learning astrology and wants to have a deeper look.

  13. Invaluable Information


    Thank you for doing this course, it helps to put things in perspective and give us more insight than your typical “career reading”. Better to know the principles other than to just guess that 10th house will determine everything

  14. Excellent!!


    I highly recommend this course if your looking for a deeper understanding of these concepts. I had a loose understanding to start with but this course really brought it together to a point where I have confidence in doing readings in this ares.

  15. Absolutely Loved The Course!!


    Sam is really a true guru because he helps you find your own guru within. The way he simplifies these complex subjects is just incredible. At the same time, his humor and references really make it so relatable; and if his example happens to be exactly what your chart is showing, you cannot stop but have a big smile of awakening on your face. Thank you for offering this amazing course and allowing us to follow our Swadharma, and to find that light within 💡🙏🏽
