Day 1 Friday 20th October
9.00 Conference Welcome
9.00 – 11.00 Visti Larsen The Moon Crests the Head(s) of Our Lord
Introducing the concept and philosophy of the Moon’s sign and nakshatras and how this practically translates from 28 stars or nakshatras to 27 stars. Further, how this relates to the individual and their birth on this planet and what they have been born to achieve. This presentation is a prelude to the Sunday workshop.
11.30 – 13.00 Sarbani Rath Bhamsa (D27)
The Moon loves the nakshatra mandala and travels through them covering 27 nakshatras. The nakshatra mandala is a mandala of trees. Bhamsa is the Moon’s own division giving us food and water by which we get the strength to live. It operates at a subconscious level and is a very internal divisional chart. Through this varga, we will explore the kind of thoughts we have and the strengths the grahas possess.
13.00 – 14.00 Lunch
14.00 -15.30 Sonal Sachdeva Lifetimes of Samskara Carried by Our Mind (Chandra)
The ‘Fruits Vipaka’ of one’s Karma and actions can be deciphered from the Moon Nakshatra as well as examining Navamsa Moon.We will delve deeply into the intricacies of the Nakshatra padas of the Moon, Navamsa dispositor etc. Some remedies will also be drawn from various texts such as Chandra kala Nadi, KarmavipakaSamhita, Nadi Jyotisha and others.
15.45 – 17.00 Gordon Brennan The Lunar Cycle and the Elements: Gardening by the Moon
Modern civilisation has moved away from the natural understanding of agricultural and horticultural matters. It is time to learn it again. We already know some of it through our astrological studies, but we might not know how to apply it.
Day 2 Saturday 21 October
9.15 – 11.00 Sarbani Rath Arudha and the Moon
Arudha lagna is the manifestation of the janma lagna and verily is its reflection. The Moon, in its resplendent glory of reflected light, is the karaka of the arudha lagna. We will study this fundamental relationship in its various aspects including the placement of the Moon in the different bhavas from the arudha lagna.
11.00 – 11.30 Break
11.30 – 13.00 Vijaya Subramanian Discovering the Anatomy of the Mind through the Moon in the Horoscope
The Moon is the instrument through which consciousness operates. Vijaya will be examining the Moon in the horoscope to understand the mental make up of an individual and the narrative one builds.
13.00 – 14.00 Lunch
14.00 – 15.30 Sonal Sachdeva Emotional Happiness and the Psyche
The tithis of the Moon have a huge role to play in personal feelings of happiness as it is not just the ‘jala’ flowing connection to others, but also translates into one of the 16 rays or kalas that can be linked up with Amrita Kalas of Moon
We will examine these and some yogas involving the two Gurus with the Moon.
15.45 – 17.00 Plenary Session. Current topics of the day.
