Shad Bala - Sixfold Assesment of Strength 
1. STHANA BALA - This is the positional strength of a planet. ​​​​​​​2. DIG BALA  - Directional strength based on residence in an angle. 3. KALA BALA - It is strength of time. It consists of different factors: ​​​​​​​4. CHESTA BALA - Planets which are relatively slow (among them retrograde planets) get a high Chesta Bala value. 5. NAISARGIKA BALA - Strength based on natural brightness. ​​​​​​​6. DRIK BALA - Drik Bala is called aspect strength - gives a reward based on benefic aspects and detriment for malefic aspects. 7. TOTAL SHADBALA - The points are added up and quantized. YOU WILL LEARN:
  1. ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​To recognize the posture of every planet and how well it "stands up" to many forms of pressure. This often shows how anger and frustration can become strength and discipline.
  2. How the stance of Venus shows a natural state of "feeling valued" when we interact and compromise with others. This is important in our sexual life, married life and business life. 
  3. Finding a great teacher or guru and "stance of Jupiter"​.
  4. The "inner force" of retrograde planets and how they lead us astray and back to the source.
  5. The science of aspectual strength and how to measure multiple aspects and measure their affects. 
  6. How aspects to planets affect work, relationships and other life events. 
  7. How to interpret the "Directional strength" of each planet and each angle. This will show you if the planet leads you where you want to go or leads you astray.
  8. The "planetary war" calculations and what they mean. These have been debated for centuries. I will show you how and why I use the system I use.
  9. The important astronomy that you must know in order to do astrology correctly. It also will prove to you once and for all that Vedic astrology is CLEARLY a sidereal based system.
  10. So much more

    Amazing Course


    I think this is one of the best courses Sam has done in terms of the depth and detail that you get. It really transforms shad bala from being that single “good” or “bad” number that doesn’t really give you any details into an entirely new way of evaluating planets and how they feel and what kinds of effects they give in a person’s life. The facets of shad bala are really clearly and precisely described and explained. I also enjoyed how it was a smaller class, which meant a lot of participation from the students with really helpful discussions and examples. it gave me a whole new perspective on how to approach readings and get a more nuanced and complete picture of the person’s life.

    I did not participate in the live class but listened later to the recordings. Wow, very intensive. Made me realize the depth that can be explored in a chart. Mucho information!

  3. Transformative!


    This class was not only personally transformative but has changed the way I will read charts! The level of depth and insight this knowledge brings is incredible. I absolutely recommend taking this course!
