Jyotisha Tutorials by Patti Foy
Jyotisha Tutorial Introduction | Financial Jyotish

Welcome to the new Jyotish Tutorial series by Patti Foy

Patti Foy is a certified Vedic Astrologer

of Jyotish Visharada, CVA. She's been working
with satisfied clients world-wide since 1998.

and access her services (including but not
limited to Jyotish) at her website/blog
Lightspirited Being.

Jyotish is a remarkably powerful tool for interpreting a birth chart.

But a Vedic birth chart contains so much information that sometimes it can be down-right overwhelming.

Well, look no further.

This series offers sequential, bite-size lessons on how to interpret a Vedic chart. Each sub-series will center around a given aspect of life.

It's designed with the assumption that you already have a basic knowledge of Jyotish and understand the meaning of the planets, houses, signs, nakshatras, etc. as well as other basics needed to analyze a chart such as aspects, yogas, use of harmonic charts, dasas, etc.

When English words exist for a particular concept, I'll use them instead of Sanskrit. Sanskrit is an amazing language and has its advantages, but many of you are Westerners and it will be easier for you to understand this way. (If this is a problem for you, please do let me know.)

Note: Many thanks to Pundit Mahesh Shastriji for inviting me to present some Jyotish lessons to you.

First Up: Financial Astrology

Given what's going on in the world, Pundit Mahesh Shastriji and I decided it would be good to start with the area of financial astrology.

You will learn:

  • What the financial indicators are in an individual's chart
  • How to interpret and translate them into meaningful and useful information
  • How to spot both opportunities and challenges
  • How to take best advantage of both

What This Tutorial Covers

Here's an outline of the topics I plan to cover and the order I expect to cover them in, although I'm sure I'll adjust it as I go.

Each topic will be a separate article (approximately).

If you'd like to see other topics included, please let me know and I'll see if they fit in.
