Senay Yangel and Gary Gomes presented an introduction to Vedic (Jyotish) Astrology in this special international webinar that will be in both Turkish and English.

Jyotish (Vedic) Astrology was founded in Indian between 5,000 and 6,000 years ago and is an unbroken tradition from then to present day. Jyotish (Vedic) Astrology is used for all dimensions of secular and religious life. Incarnations of the god Vishnu are openly tied to the planets. This webinar will explain the key differences between Jyotish and Western astrology, such as the regular use of the nakshatras (a more detailed system than the Western lunar mansions) and the dashas (which are similar to the Western Fidaria).

Using example charts, Senay showed how you put a Vedic chart together to interpret the planets, lordships, and yogas, and how remedial measures are used to as a method of mitigating difficult transits.
