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.

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.
