Brihat Parashara Hora Sastra provides several types of Avasthas or planetary conditions that reveal both the predictive influence as well as the behavioral influence of a planet. In several courses I use the different Avasthas for predictive purposes. The future, however, is created by our behavior and so Avasthas also reveal critical aspects of a person’s behaviour that make or break their successes. In this course I will speak at length about the behavioral and character effects of the different Avasthas. These interpretations will provide the backbone to your predictions for it is these behaviours that unerringly bring the predicted future upon the indiviudal. When life comes upon a person in an undersirable way, it is these interpretations that will show why these things have happened. When life is productive, it is these interpretations that will show the strengths of the individual that made life prosperous and fulfilling. If your goal is to counsel your clients and thus enrich their lives, then Interpreting Avasthas is a must.

Interpreting Jaagradaadi Avasthas

Jaagradaadi Avasthas are the most simple of Avasthas. A planet is considered to be awake and fully operative, sleepy and mediocrely operative, or unconsciously asleep and thus inoperative.  This is the beginning point of how an individual uses each planet in each Varga chart.
