Topics Presented by Alan Annand in Jyotish Kumbh Mela 2022
- Iyer’s methodology of Amsha Vichara D9/D10 – Most jyotishis lack a reliable approach to interpret the divisional charts for which jyotish is renowned. Seshadri Iyer, a mathematical astrologer, revealed his system of amsha vichara in his 2-volume New Techniques of Prediction in 1963, but the books remained obscure until “unlocked” by Hart DeFouw and his guru Mantriji. Although Iyer’s 40 principles would take a week to discuss, in this lecture Alan will highlight key principles for D9 and D10 analysis to shed immediate light on clients’ relationship and career queries.
- Neechabhanga Raja Yoga – Alan will provide a detailed five-step process for assessing the degree to which a neecha (debilitated) graha may be “relieved” by one, two or three other grahas in the horoscope under study. Although the basic theory is described in Phaladeepika, this expanded protocol will go several steps beyond mere identification of Neechabhanga. Students will learn how to distinguish varieties of Neechabhanga Yoga versus Neechabhanga Raja Yoga, and to identify the likely dasha/bhukti sequence in which such effects will manifest.
- Kala Sarpa Yoga – Originating from a South Indian oral tradition, Kala Sarpa isn’t discussed in jyotish shastra. As a consequence, it’s poorly understood by astrologers, and generally feared by clients. In this lecture, Alan will unravel this complex configuration, particularly regarding its astronomical realities and consequences. As regards its interpretation, as yoga versus dosha, he will show how to apply traditional principles of graha and yoga vichara to shed light on one of jyotisha’s most enduring enigmas. Based on research involving over 700 Kala Sarpa horoscopes.
