Reading, Consultation & Teaching Intensive

Day One – Special Tactics

Overview of What, Why, How and When

  • What is astrology?
  • Why does it work?
  • How does it work?
  • When are the specific things going to happen?

Don’t lose sight of:

  • All pervasive qualities of Ascendant
  • Identity (1st house/Sun) vs. Ego (3rd house/Mars, Mercury)
  • Masculine and Feminine

Look Hard at a Confluence (through ascendant, planets, etc.) of:

  • Elements (through ascendant, planets, etc) (Strength and Weaknesses)
  • Gunas (Note the excesses and tension)
  • House / Karaka Pileups
  • Other factors that might arise. EX: a tendency toward aggression or greed or devotion.

Look hard at continuity and flow, mainly related to house indications

  • Ex: 2nd house – 3rd house – 4th house & Rulers
  • Ex2: Opposite houses and their lords.
  • Prioritize these things with Dasas

“Swiss Army Knife” Indicators (Exact Degrees, Retrograde / Combust planets, Hemming, etc.)

Day Two – Reading Strategies

Staying with what you know.

  • Start with narrow, themed readings (Career, relationships, etc)
  • It’s OK to say “no” to certain things (because you do not know or do not comply)
  • Have good boundaries with time and accountability for their problems.
  • It is your job to manage the reading. They will respect you for doing so. Some of the time you may have to

Setting the frame

  • Explain the structure of the reading to show you are in control.
  • 5-15 minute “Opening” (start with their birth info to double-check / read any notes).
  • Use a reading template as a guide.
  • Scan for factors and synthesize (like what we discussed yesterday)
  • Insist on no interruptions at first – be the Alpha.
  • Integrate their already voiced concerns

Moving it forward, answering questions and empowering clients

  • Insist on their feedback at times and for them to give an example of what they
  • Make sure they understand that everything is “their karma”.
  • 3 Karakas and harmonic charts for knowing the answer to their question.
  • Dasas and transits together.

Finishing and preparing for the end

  • With about 10 minutes left, make sure they know time almost up.
  • Say something like “we have 10 minutes left. So any questions, while we have time”.
  • Get them to ask all of their questions at once. Listen to them all.
  • Answer them first quickly, then fill in the details.
  • Summarize
