Purpose of the Vedic Astrology Course

There are two main purposes for this course that make it unique:

  1. To provide a thorough, step-by-step way to learn Vedic astrology, based on K.N. Rao's PAC-DARES method, that dramatically accelerates a student's ability to interpret the natal chart accurately.
  2. To teach in a style that encourages the student to think astrologically about the logic behind an interpretation, and not just rely on rote memorization. The quizzes, exercises, and homework assignments are designed to encourage a level of critical thinking that helps the student become an astute astrologer.
