The Predictive Planetary Periods of Vedic Astrology

The dashas or planetary periods of Hindu Astrology represent the development life cycles and future trends of one's life. This is a unique predictive system based on the position of your natal Moon's nakshatra placement.

This analysis can be particularly helpful for gaining a more comprehensive overview of the timing of karmic patterns coming to fruition. Marriage, career success and other important life events can be revealed with detailed accuracy.

Dr. Harness is currently working on a new book titled The Karmic Code: The Predictive Planetary Periods of Vedic Astrology.

Saturday - August 15, 2015
Building: C Room: C210
1:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Mighty Aphrodite: She’s Nobody’s Bitch

Venus symbolizes the power of attraction in a horoscope. Venus is our advertising campaign; the planet responsible for drawing people into our lives. Like a male peacock fanning its tail or a flower opening its petals, Venus asks our prospective lovers, friends, buyers, and bosses: do you like what you see?

We all have a list of qualities we want in a lover. But how many of us actually find that person? Why is it that what we see in our mind’s eye rarely matches what we get in love?

Venus doesn’t show us what we want. Venus shows us what we get. The first part of the workshop will look at Venus in art, culture, and history. We will then spend the last part of the workshop examining the role of Venus in attendee horoscopes and tease apart what she has to say about the kind of signals we put out there and the kind of love that we attract into our lives.

Registered Attendees: Do you want your horoscope discussed at the Workshop? Please email your name and birth data to Venus Workshop Examples. Participation is on a first-come first-served basis, so send your data early. This workshop will be recorded. Your participation acknowledges your consent to have your voice, image and chart data included in the recording of this event. Attendees who respond to this offer will receive an MP3 of the segment containing their horoscope discussion.
