Jupiter in Scorpio

Light on Still Waters

Jupiter, the principal planet of light, will enter the constellation of Scorpio on October 11, 2018 and remain therein until the first week of November 2018. Scorpio is a water sign that is ruled by Jupiter's planetary friend and brother Mars. The deep, still waters of Scorpio are not penetrable to the naked eye, often running silent and running deep. It is only when the light is shone that we are able to see what is lurking beneath the surface.

Join Dennis as he will explore the astrological implications of Jupiter's sojourn through Scorpio for each of the 12 constellations. Jupiter's brilliant catalytic light will penetrate the unfathomable depths to reveal what secrets are lurking beneath the surface of Scorpio's still waters!

Grasping the Life and Times of the Grahas

Each of the planets has a time to release the karmas they represent in the Vedic chart. In this workshop Dennis will explain the many and varied times of the planets, for in Indian cosmology they represent the times of your life from birth to death. This class will teach you the life and times of each of the nine grahas, helping you to understand their times of maturity, their times of transit, and most importantly their time cycles as represented by the Vimshottari Dasa system.

With over three decades as a full time practicing astrologer, Dennis will instruct you how to prioritize and combine the many and varied timelines of the planets into a coherent model to enrich your timing skills as a practicing Vedic astrologer.
