Why join Jyotish Intermediate course?

Jyotish, also known as Vedic astrology, is an ancient system of astrology. It is based on the principles of Hindu astrology and astronomy and has been used for thousands of years to help people understand the cycles of life.
There are several reasons why one should learn Jyotish!
First, Jyotish is believed to be a highly accurate and powerful tool for understanding the influences that planetary positions have on our lives. By learning jyotish, one can gain insight into their own personality, strengths, weaknesses, and potential for success in various areas of life, including relationships, career, and finances. Additionally, Jyotish is often used to make predictions about future events and make informed decisions for important life events such as marriages, childbirth, and business ventures. Finally, studying Jyotish can also be a deeply spiritual and introspective practice.
