This Course has been Archived and will be taught anew with more comprehensive tables and calculations as part of the upcoming Parashara’s Formula Course beginning in June 2013.

How to judge the Bhavas is one of the first things a predictive astrologer will want to do. The Bhavas represent the concrete, existing things in the world. Judging a Bhava allows the astrologer to do two things: The astrologer will be able to see the overall condition of the Bhava and thus inform the client about the lifelong promise of that Bhava.

First learn the foundational principles required to judge a Bhava:
- Astronomy – One of the Astrologer’s Gurus

To better judge a Bhava Lord, in fact, to judge it thouroughly, the next step in your studies should be the Lajjitaadi Avasthas Course. Between the judging Bhavas principles and the Lajjitaadi Avasthas, you will be ready to make predictions – these techniques are the heart of Brihat Parashara Hora Shastra’s predictive principles.
