LEARN VEDIC (INDIAN) ASTROLOGY BY LEARNING MORE ABOUT YOURSELF

Vedic Astrology Course on the basis of your own horoscope

Dirah Academy is pleased to be at the ‘leading edge’ of providing distance-learning courses and certification in Vedic Astrology. Our courses are unique in that each course:

And this is what Richard Houck, author of The Astrology of Death and Digital Astrology says about the course:  

"I often have people ask me about where they can learn basic Vedic astrology from a person rather than a book.
The Dirah Academy offers a personalized 14-lesson correspondence course that is probably the best combination of simplicity, clarity, practicality, usefulness and cost value on the world market today.
How can you beat having fun with your own chart while learning Vedic astrology for about $25 a lesson? I don't know how they do it."

Vedic astrology is a form of astrology that is 5OOO years old. Increasing numbers of Western astrologers are discovering the value of Vedic astrology. In the Western world interest for Vedic astrology is steadily growing.

Contents of the course: The course includes among other things, the interpretation of a Vedic horoscope, the role of harmonic horoscopes, the Indian system of predictive astrology (dasas), yogas in the horoscope, Vedic methods of treatment (choosing the (semi-) precious stone, colour and mantra), the relationship to ayurveda (how to determine the ayurvedic physical type from the horoscope).These subjects are treated in fourteen extensive lessons.

Applied Indian Astrology: This course will enable you to understand Vedic astrology and what you can achieve with it. In the course, the accent is placed on the practical application of Indian astrology, hence the special attention to Vedic treatment methods and ayurveda.

Course Supervisor: Dirah Academy International has teachers in different parts of the world. For the UK or Eire your teacher will be Steve Hubball. Click here for information about the other astrological services he offers.

Testimonials from Recent Dirah Students

The Dirah Courses are different from anything in the line of correspondence courses I have ever before encountered.  I think it is because they engage you fully in the process of learning and mainly with your own chart; you are not just pupil and teacher, but more rather as partners in the fascinating process of learning Jyotish.  Highly recommended, with excellent tutoring and guidance from Steve.

C.W. (London, UK) 

Steve is an excellent teacher; he is very knowledgeable, clear and precise and is also very encouraging and positive.  I have found these qualities very important in studying such a vast and profound subject as Jyotish.  When I started the course I did not know what to expect but as I have progressed I have been more and more impressed by the way that such complex topics have been explained simply and clearly; not only this but one learns how to apply these concepts straight away in a practical manner.

B.G.S. (Bath, UK) 

I very much appreciate your deep and extremely helpful remarks and judgements, which I will need to re-read and meditate on many times.  I am finding your course immensely valuable and incisive.   It is living with me a lot of the time.  

G.B. (Huddersfield, UK) 

Many thanks for your speedy response to my last assignment and the beautiful certificates which arrived today.

 I’d like to thank you for your help and support during the course, not least your patience when I’ve had a problem grasping something or merely misreading the text!  There’s a stunning amount of information in the courses and I know I’ll be dipping back into the course notes for years to come. 

This is just to thank you for tutoring me through the four Vedic Astrology courses.  You’ve been so patient ad encouraging and I’ve really appreciated that.  It’s quite remarkable how much the courses cover – I keep going back to them and finding even more than I first realised.
