Vedic Astrology Classes

Dennis teaches all of his classes and workshop in the time honored oral tradition of Shruti, which in Sanskrit means that which is heard.

All classes and workshop are available through a platform of live interaction so that students can participate in a real time learning environment regardless of location nationally or internationally. Your instructor, Dennis Flaherty, is one of the foundational people who have brought the astrology of India to the West these past three decades. All classes and workshop are recognized toward CVA certification through the Council of Vedic Astrology (CVA), the oldest Vedic astrology organization in the West.

Your instructor, Dennis Flaherty, is one of the four foundational people who co-sponsored the International Symposiums on Vedic Astrology that brought the great teachers of Vedic Astrology to speak to live western audiences the last two decades.

He is an approved teacher of the CVA and all classes and workshops count toward CVA certification.

Jupiter in Sagittarius: Onward and UpwardA

 

As the Sun is the King of day sky, Jupiter is King of the night sky – as the brightest of the planets in the night sky! Like the Sun, he is most effective in his fiery domains and none more expressive than his own sign of Sagittarius. Here the element of fire allows and urges Jupiter ever skyward to the domains of the heavens and gods. The archer, and his arrow, are the symbols for this expansive constellation, which allows those under its influence to enter the inspiring realms of continuing education, philosophy, spirituality, and worldly and other worldly travel in the pursuit of higher knowledge. Join Dennis as he expands your worldly and other worldly horizons with Jupiter in Sagittarius.

The Saturn/Pluto Alignment:
Slipping Into Darkness With Light

As the Sun is the King of day sky, Jupiter is King of the night sky – as the brightest of the planets in

On January 12th, 2020 Saturn and Pluto will align in the final degrees of the constellation of Sagittarius. The ancient sages of Vedic astrology divided the planets of our solar system into two distinct categories; luminous and non-luminous planets. Saturn is the last of the luminous planets that reflect the spectrum of light while Pluto is the last of the non-luminous planets of darkness. Due to Pluto’s eccentric orbit this irregular pattern last occurred in November of 1982. The alignments before that were August of 1947 and October of 1914 during the cataclysmic conflicts of the Great World Wars.

Astronomical advances these past few decades have allowed us to peer into the darkness beyond the spectrum of light to reveal that darkness is not empty space, devoid of celestial matter, but rather populated by dark celestial bodies, black holes as well as dark matter. This awareness changes the way we perceive the limits of the Cosmos offering new opportunities and challenges, as that which was hidden in darkness is now revealed for all to see moving forward.

The effect is often cathartic and cataclysmic in how we perceive the limits of our world, and thus the limits of ourselves, for once that which was in darkness becomes revealed in light the effect if often cataclysmic and cathartic; world changing as we can never go back to way things were. Join Dennis as he discusses the Saturn/Pluto alignment for each of the 12 astrological constellations.

Saturn in Capricorn: Truth and Consequences

On January 23rd 2020 Saturn will enter his own constellation of Capricorn where he will remain for 2 ½ years. Saturn is the last of the luminous planets from the Sun. Thus he represents the beginning of darkness and the uncharted territory beyond the vestiges of fading light. This class will explore the most feared and most revered of the planets as he enters his own constellation, for the onset of darkness can bring unreasonable fears to many impressionable minds.

Saturn is heralded as the Sat Graha: The planet of the truth. As the last of the luminous planets Saturn reveals that light has its time and limits, and for those who understand this timeless truth Saturn will be their greatest teacher. For those who are ignorant of this fact Saturn will also be their greatest teacher, testing their attachment and limits to that they believe to be true, revealing the ephemerality of the world.

This class will discuss the effects of Saturn in Capricorn in the astrological chart so you can be the decider of what is real and what is of passing consequence in your lives. Don’t delay! Sign up for Saturn’s workshop today.

The Secret and Passionate Life of Venus

Vedic sage, Parasara, says Venus is joyful in spirit, charming in physique, is splendorous and has beautiful, brilliant eyes - the inspirer of poets. Although often relegated to the title “lesser benefic”, Venus nonetheless is also of Brahmin caste, same as Jupiter, and is a first rate benefic planet in his own right. The Sanskrit name, Shukra, means brilliant light. Venus is never more brilliant than at his closest approach to the earth, and at those times will rival Jupiter in brilliance to become the most brilliant planet in the sky, even observable during the day!

Venus is a cloud-covered planet that has held its secrets closely. Recent probes have revealed a tumultuous landscape swept by violent storms. Venus is the only planet whose day is longer than its year. It rotates on its axis in 243 days and only takes 225 to circle the Sun. Further, Venus rotates on its axis in the opposite direction of all the other planets! The inferior conjunction of Venus with the Sun takes place when Venus is close to the earth, between the Sun and the Earth, during his retrograde cycle. During this time Venus can spend up to 4 months in a constellation rather than his usual 3 weeks.

The nature of Venus becomes intensified during his period of proximity to the earth, and the stormy secrets of Venus’ passion revealed. Join Dennis as he reveals the secrets of the most brilliant and passionate of the planets for each of the astrological constellations.
