I am the founder of the American Academy of Vedic Art and Science.
The astrology system I’m about to share
You probably see astrology as something
I want to shift your perspective about
that whole issue right now.
Astrology is not something
just reserved for the "Gifted Few"
It is something anyone can learn if it is taught correctly
Not only that,
You Are Supposed to Know
Astrology, Just as All of the
Educated People (Brahmins) in the Enlightened Era Did!
This is Too Important - For you and
for the world - to just blast through and NOT read this entire message. I
guarantee that if you do read this message you will have possibilities
opened that were not open before..
So make me a promise that you will at least take 10
minutes to read this entire message, DEAL?
The Big Lie and the Good News
You see, you think you are
tongue tied or not able to explain things because you're just "not as
gifted" as other astrologers, or you say to yourself, "I just
can't put into words" as well as others. None of that is true. The
simple truth is,... there is good news. You just need to be trained
properly. You are under the illusion that learning astrology is more
difficult than it actually is. Much of the illusion revolves around
thinking you need to learn more complex techniques, which is not true. You
... to first
organize what you already know, then focus that new found
depth in the right direction. I understand why you think this, because
before I developed this system I thought the same thing too. In
fact, other Certification programs do not teach a holistic, integrated
approach either. They are basically "gathering information".
Which is not much different than what you're already doing. Memorization
is not Mastery - so, I get it. I understand why you are doing what you're
doing, and wondering why you should study with me. But the thing to
...everyone in your life
is suffering more because of the "go it alone"
approach to studying astrology that you have. You suffer, your friends and
family suffer, your potential clients suffer, and honestly - astrology
itself suffers. Every time you explain something astrological in an
uneducated way, you erode the credibility of astrology, not just in the
eyes of the people you're talking to, but also to the people they will be
am sorry to say these things in a brutally honest fashion, but I must
because I want more for you and I also have the Guaranteed and
tested system to help you. If someone you knew was killing themselves with
cigarettes, wouldn't you do and say...
anything you could to get
them to listen? Wouldn't you resort to telling them the painful truths
if you needed to? You might have to shake them and say "Hey, you
are not going to live forever and we are all dying a little more each
day, stop wasting time and get this handled". That is a little
bit of what I am doing here. You see, people email me all of the time and
get readings with me and fill out surveys, and the main thing they tell me
think they are wasting
their life, not doing something meaningful - not learning and growing.
Then I compare that grim, purposelessness and confusion to the words of
the students I interact with on a regular basis, who say things
"It is a
blessing to be able to receive this sacred knowledge from the astrology
certification course from Sam Geppi. It seems that it is Sam's mission in
life to see that everyone is able to grasp the importance of this science.
His unique teaching style and order of lessons are easily comprehended.
Sam's students are not only inspired by his wisdom and joy of sharing but
their lives are transformed by it as well", And I just want to
shake people a little bit..,
little hope into you. I
know what it is like to know have hope or see a way out. Also, I love
astrology too much to see it not done correctly. I am ready and willing to
show up for you in a big way and help you get this handled. So, I want to
ask a big question of you now:
Is that how it's going to
be with you and astrology?
Are you going to keep clunking around, wasting years and years
gathering disconnected bits of information? Just looking for the latest
free and entertaining video from the latest Youtube genius, mainly just
looking at your chart, thinking you are actually learning astrology. Or
are you going to ...
get trained and get it
handled, understanding your place in the universe first, then help
others understand their place? I want
you to ponder these questions deeply, whether you get my course or not,
because the clock is ticking on your life. I have had more than 60
students enrolled for the last several years, and this year will be no
exception. At some point very soon..
I will have to shut the door
on the enrollment, because I can only handle so many students. So, I will
be fine. I will have more than my share of students this year as
well. But you have to ask yourself ...
...what are you moving toward and
what you are moving away from. There is perhaps nothing more "high
leverage" than studying astrology and connecting your limited mind
with the cosmic mind. The knowledge of astrology benefits everything else
you're doing in life, and everyone in your life.
I am doing everything I can to teach as many people at an incredibly high
level, and my record speaks for itself. Just read the words of past and
current students and...
.... this could represent a major turning point in your
as it has with the many students who have come before.

Janet Scott - Merupurti
|"I'm blessed: after about 4 years of reading, researching Jyotish and feeling somewhat intimidated by its greatness, I made the life-changing decision of studying with Sam for a proper certification. I wanted to study with my guru, Dattatreya Siva Baba, founder of Astroved, but he was not available. When he recommended Sam, I made that decision out of trust in my guru.
Before this course, I never thought that Jyotish could be made so easy while following, at the same time, the classical texts and the purity of Vedic thought. Sam can achieve this feat in a unique, friendly and precise style. I am so happy that I signed up. In this course I'm always looking forward to the next level -- it's fascinating. Thanks so much, Sam, for making this study possible. Jyotish was definitely a missing link in my yogic studies and in my understanding of the universe."
|"I started learning about Vedic Astrology in 2006 but it wasn’t until Sam’s class in 2012 that all the pieces of the puzzle came together for me. I was looking for someone to help me understand the structure of Vedic Astrology not just facts and about the time I finished his book “The Ascendant – 108 Planets of Vedic Astrology” he decided to offer his class.
I jumped at the chance and after one year of his instruction I was able to understand and explain the principles with confidence, receive a Level 1 certification in Vedic Astrology, and launched my own Jyotish Astrology reading service. I am so thankful for the knowledge that Sam has shared because it has not only helped me professionally but also personally. I am currently continuing my education with Sam Geppi at the American Academy of Vedic Art and Science in the Level 2 Vedic Astrology class.-Robin Wegman"

|"Getting certified as a Vedic Astrologer through the
American Academy of Vedic Arts and Sciences with Sam Geppi was one of the best experiences I've ever had! I am a yoga teacher with a strong background in Ayurveda and this course allowed me to begin to fully grasp the Vedic knowledge in its wholeness. Sam's approach to teaching this vast and seemingly complicated science is to build our knowledge piece by piece on a solid foundation of the basic principles of all the Vedic sciences. Beginning with the specific, colorful details of each planet, house and nakshatra, to the more advanced understandings of yogas, dignities, lordships, etc. and into beginning to understand how dasha cycles work, harmonic charts, and planetary transits.
Through this course, I was amazed at how each week, my knowledge and understanding grew exponentially! In my career it has helped me grow leaps and bounds as well. Jyotish (Vedic Astrology) is used as a way to help determine what hatha yoga asana and pranyama is relevant at any given time (transits) and for any given person (natal charts and dasha cycles) due to the inter-relation with Ayurveda. The imbalances that may be present physically in one's body, and also in one's mind, are largely due to their Rasi (natal chart) and which dasha cycles they are passing through. What is currently happening in the sky affects everyone, albeit in different ways, it can greatly change the energy and mindset of my students and clients and has given me an amazing ability to really tune in to where people are at every day. It has also allowed me to begin another aspect to my healing and teaching career...offering people readings! It is amazing how wonderful it feels to share what you love and what has helped work for you with others and to have people value that and seek it out. I already have a few repeat clients and recommendations from them! In my personal life, this course has helped me understand myself, fundamentally and daily, and my relationships in a way where I can be more objective, less emotional, and really pinpoint what is coming up for myself and my close relations when we have discord. In general, it takes away the feeling of hopelessness and confusion that often surrounds our more troublesome experiences because it gives us a clear and clean way in to see what is really at work and how we can begin to address the issues that come up again and again for ourselves and others. I highly recommend this amazingly un-complicated and en-lightening course for anyone who is interested in learning Vedic astrology for personal or professional reasons. Sam's style of teaching is very representative of what I love about the Vedic sciences to begin with...they offer a clear, detailed roadmap of what to actually do with the path beneath your feet.
Alexis Cox - www.alexiscoxyoga.com
|"I first began studying "Systems Approach" Vedic astrology in 2002,
but it seemed like it raised more questions than it answered.
Does this feeling sound familiar? No matter how much you read, whether it's Western or Vedic astrology, you just get more and
And then it all starts to come clear.
The first big revelation I picked up from him, was the idea that "in general, relationships work a lot better if the woman's Moon
The planets are not Santa Claus," says Sam. "They're not here to give us stuff. They are Forces of Intelligence." When you enroll in
have found Sam's astrology certification course to be highly
informative and valuable. There's a lot of information to take in
and Sam breaks down the details into bite-sized chunks to make
learning easier. I have learnt so much since I started the course
in August and now have a better understanding of the vedic culture
and history. Sam's explanation of the 3 gunas has helped me to
understand how they work. His way of teaching Planets with the
signs makes a lot of sense. I did enrol a couple of years ago in
the Relationship Astrology course, but found that I was out of my
depth. When this course came up, I knew I had to do it to learn
the basics, and what better person to do it than with Sam. Even
though I have not been studying that long, I would definitely
recommend the course because Sam is a great teacher."
Sheila Murray www.sheilamurray.co.uk"
|"I have found Sam's astrology certification to be grounding in my Astrological Knowledge. "I have been very surprised and grateful at how flexible Sam has been during the course with teaching and answering questions . As a teacher Sam is a teacher who does the research and tests his knowledge. He refines his knowledge to make sure we are getting the the best possible information at all times.
The main things I have learned are to be more patient with the questions I want answered. This will really help me be more precise in relaying the information. I have been studying for 2 years. Even though I have studied before I would like to make sure my knowledge is accurate and true. I would definitely recommend the course because it is helpful for all levels of learning for people who want to learn Astrology."
Christopher Chayban - http://www.3rdeyedesigns.biz/cosmokinekt/
|"I did a reading last week with someone that has had many Vedic readings done by many other astrologers. I wasn't sure how it was going to go so I just went to the root and basics of really explaining things and he was so grateful… saying how much more in-depth my reading was than all the others and how he has a complete new understudying of his chart... instead of confusion surrounding it!"
"yayyy!! Thank you for your teachings and for bringing them to life in me so I can share!! So grateful Sam!"
2001 I was also like you, feeling defeated and feeling that I could
not possibly do astrology correctly. I was frustrated and about to give up
on Astrology, UNTIL,...
…I returned to the source
of Vedic astrology Brihat Parashara Hora Sastra and
hidden power and secrets of Vedic astrology that most
Western teachers had abandoned or at least were not using correctly. Once
I began to read "...
Parashara" I clearly saw the most important things that
were not being done correctly ort that were not understood clearly...
Gathering this research led to my first
book "The Ascendant-108 Planets of Vedic Astrology", and quickly
led to a busy consulting practice, as my reading accuracy improved
exponentially. It was great to quickly get a thriving practice together,
but my heart was really in teaching others as I know this was the main
intent of the Vedic rishis.
Science, yes. Fiction, no. Every one of these results has been experienced and reported to us by participants in the program.
You just read a few testimonials above. The reason the system works so well is because
it's approached scientifically, where the universal archetypes of life, not just
astrology, are used as the organizing structures.
Meaning, things such as 'the five elements', 'divine masculine and feminine',
'the chakras', 'the four goals of life' are used over and over
again. These principles are universal to all healing systems, whether they are
western or Vedic. but as I said, the results I’ve described aren’t
the results of just a few people. What I’ve just outlined is the average
profile of a long-term participant in our program.
Can you really
master astrology and your karma too?
If myself and these others can learn it, you can too!
World Example - My Story
A lot Like Yours
I began studying the Vedic Sciences when I was 19 years old, in 1983. At that
time I started a meditation practice, based on the books of Bhagwan Shree
Rajneesh (later known as Osho). I was really a lost soul back then - a child of
divorce with much confusion and heartbreak. At the time, these meditations and
practices saved my life. It prepared me for a life long study of Vedic sciences.
I continued that meditation practice until this day - now studying with my sat
In between, the 30 years that have passed between Rajneesh and Amma, the world
changed a lot - and so did I. Through the 80's and much of the 90's the world
was still in the "old paradigm" of communication - meaning NO
INTERNET. The world was a lot different - especially as it related to things
such as spirituality and the worlds of East and West sharing their cultural and
Actually, I Was Really Lost
During that time, I continued my Indian studies practices, in anonymity, all the
while half heartedly pursuing a musical career. In truth, I was lost most of
those years as I had no interest in committing to a career / making a living in
the world, unless I could do what I wanted. So I worked in sales jobs, I would
drink and smoke and was basically living the "tortured artist" life.
Outer circumstances were not supporting my inner life and by the late 90's, I
was sinking and I felt like I was running out of options. I never went to
college, minus a year of electives and French classes - mainly motivated by
falling in love with a French girl ;) - because I was interested in
Sudden Change and Redemption and The New Paradigm
In 2001, while I was working in a sales job, a great thing happened, I was fired
(actually we were all let go,
downsized). While grown men were crying, having lost a 100K / year job suddenly,
I was ecstatic. I quickly did the math and realized, including severance pay and
unemployment, I had about 3 years to start over and do something new and I knew
exactly what that was - Yoga and Vedic astrology. As the internet had changed
the world and opened things up for online businesses and communications, I had
begun studying astrology and Yoga in earnest again and was hopeful to help
I no longer felt like this weird guy interested in bewildering Indian science and spirituality. I started an email list,
as there were more and more people interested in learning about these sciences.
I saw all around me people trying their best to awaken to the mystical truths of
the East, but just not really getting it. For instance, "The Law of Karma" is a totally empowering concept. It essentially says that you are responsible for everything and the things that limit and frame your life are the result of the limitations you have imagined and then acted upon.
But instead, filtered through our modern misunderstanding, the law of Karma is often rejected due to the wrong notion that it is unempowering and "lording over us" somehow - like a system of carrots and sticks being wielded by unseen, believed in, overlords. Sadly, Vedic astrologers often frame "The Planets" as these oppressive overlords.
Often western Vedic astrologers will rebel against that notion - citing our
freewill as being able to overcome it. Whereas Indians fall more in line with
the "Overlord" part of it, seeing astrology as a way to make us
resigned to our fate / punishment, etc. Western side says "fight, use the
ego" - Eastern side says "accept and take it".
"Great" I thought, "this is what I have to
In Search of A Better Way and The
Moment I Decided To Be An Astrologer
By 2004, I had been studying Vedic astrology fervently and felt it was being
taught very sloppily - either by Westerners who lacked an authentic Vedic
background or by Indians who were too Dogmatic and religious about it. I
also noticed that many of the techniques being taught were not very precise
at all, did not work consistently and were not repeatable. Teachers would
use the same selected charts, then when I tried to apply their simplistic
techniques, I found they did not work.
I attended a class by a well-known
Astrologer and we were looking at
Hitler's chart. I noticed that Hitler Dasas (planetary cycles) seemed to
make no sense- based on what the person was teaching. So I asked how that
timing would work in the case of Hitler's chart and the answer was totally
unsatisfactory. I knew this person did not really know what they were talking
about, beyond personality stuff, etc. - and I thought they should know
better, given their status.
The truth is, this was not uncommon - for a professional
astrologer / teacher to not really have the precise methods of Vedic
astrology down pat enough to actually teach them and welcome all to share
their charts or experiences and break things down scientifically (which is
something I am a stickler for). In any class I teach I welcome spontaneous
chart examples - anything less is not professional.
The astrology of
over-simplicity (Good/Bad), a lack of discrimination applied between how
our karma feels and what actually happens (you look at totally different
things for feelings than you do for results) set me off on
a deep personal inquiry into Vedic astrology.
(*NOTE - I do not intend to disparage anyone's work, but I
need to be truthful)
At first I researched every thing imaginable - tested it all -
Ashtakavarga, Shad Bala, Gochara, other Modern Forms of Vedic astrology.
Like most, I thought the hidden answers must lie in these complicated,
bewildering techniques. Boy was I wrong! Instead, I found them empty and
unintuitive. This is not to say those methods are useless. No, not at all.
They are for very subtle work and I use them when needed.
Eventually I returned to the roots - the roots of my 30 year Vedic studies
practice - the roots of astrology and all healing systems. I just focused
on the core, Vedic concepts in astrology - and went as deeply into what
was universal - not just to Vedic astrology, but also to Yoga and other
astrology systems. These Universal principles are the wise forces of the
Universe that creates everything. They are all benevolent and they are not
just Indian. They are expressed in all spiritual traditions and astrology
/ healing systems.
Going Deeper - Not Wider - Led To Amazing
This was a great time of research, leading me in to into just the first
few Chapters in Maharishi Parahsara's Hora Sastra - and synthesizing several
of the important factors into a 3D approach to the Zodiac - Planets, Signs
and Houses and their true meaning. This is like learning the important,
vital bodily systems first - before trying to diagnose illness. This
research led to my first book, "The Ascendant-108 Planets of Vedic
Then a few years later I
codified a lot of my studies of these Universal astrology concepts into a
system called "Universal Astrology". I decided that everything I
was going to teach would have to be backed up by the words of the
Maharishi Parashara. So all of my classes in natal astrology, like you
will be studying, are backed up by the text - and they are used in the
course - without exception.
Vedic Astrology Certification, the Vedic Sciences and YOU
In 2008 I decided to teach a full certification program, called
"Universal Astrology", which as based on the pure Vedic
Sciences, which are also the same "Universal Principles"
embedded in every spiritual tradition and system. This was a 4 module
course, consisting of 52 hours of course material. More than 100 people
have bought those classes. Later I was hired by the Indian mystic
Dattatreya Siva Baba (an important Guru to Wayne Dyer) to teach the same
system, after he looked over the classes. You are getting the recordings
of those classes free as a bonus when you register for this certification
Reluctantly, I decided to teach these courses again, in real time, as I
have been asked for years to teach it again. This time when I teach the
Astrology Certification Course, I am going to begin with this
comprehensive Vedic Science course, rather than just a 2 hour class on it
as I did the first time. It is impossible to practice Vedic astrology
without knowing the Vedic principles. So, this time I am dedicating an
entire four weeks to teaching the Vedic principles - and its history,
culture and the relationship of Vedic astrology to other astrology
Certification Levels and Testing.
At the end of this first course you will be eligible to take the Level1
Certification test. If you pass with a mark of 80% or better you will
receive the level 1 Certification through the American Academy of Vedic
Art and Science. This will certify that you have sufficiently demonstrated
skill in understanding the mechanics and workings of Vedic
Should you decide to seek an
advanced, Level 2 Certification, the course work and tests for that will
also be available. The Level 2 Certification program was also a great success.
Astrology - How Does it Work?
… whether you know it or not, you (and everyone you know), are under the
influence of astrology every moment of every day. Your higher self (as shown by
the planets) are reaching down and communicating through your emotional body (as
shown by the astrology signs), which are leading you into action/karma (as shown
primarily by the astrology houses). This is a continual process known as...
... Your Unfolding Karma
This dance has been
happening for billions and billions of years, long before there were human
beings, in form, to even experience it. One of the most important
"reframes" of the Universal Vedic astrology method, is to first
clearly track "what is astrology?" Once I began independent
study, and stopped listening to the contorted explanations of what
astrology was, I quickly realized it was the study of God, in the form of
the universe. I was happy to have come to this realization independence of
any astronomical confirmation or Vedic/Scriptural confirmation - even
though those things quickly followed.
Our solar system is 4 1/2
billion years old. The planets have been moving in their orbits that long,
yet life on Earth has only existed for the last 500 million years –
about 1/10 of the time. 9/10 of the history of our solar system there was
for all intents and purposes, no life. So what was happening during that
time? Well, the divine Universe was getting the formula right, so that by
the time creatures with bodies appeared, the bodies would work really
well, and the genius of each of the planets would be embedded into our
If you're ever curious about
all of the fantastic stories of the gods, and all of their activities
happening in the invisible realm, just remember the fact of the age of the
universe measured against the age of "humanity". Human beings
did not appear on the scene until approximately 100,000 years ago, one
1/45,000 of the history of our solar system.
It is from this beginning
point that we acknowledge the planets as deities, and in the Vedic
tradition, and the zodiac itself as the sacred Path these deities have
been traveling for billions of years. Their power and psychology takes
form once we have an ascendant, and the houses are set up correctly.
Static and Dynamic
This unfolding karma takes
place on many levels, both subtle and gross, and through the three bodies
of Spirit, (Planets / causal body) emotion, (Sign / astral body) and form
(Houses / physical body). All three of these are seen when we assess the
birth chart (static factor) to intersecting with the dashas (timing cycle)
to end the transits in the sky each day (the cosmic timepiece). This is
... 90% of your astrology
focus should be. You could take lifetime's of simply studying planets,
signs and houses through the various Vedic frameworks - pondering the
myths and symbology - penetrating more deeply into the zodiac itself as a
sacred mandala - and still not begin to exhaust the depth of wisdom found
here. The Level 1 certification course...
...deepens and concentrates these universal themes before jumping
around like a drunk monkey on to more complicated and bewildering
techniques. This is good news for you! Because you have likely gathered
more than enough information, but it is not integrated nor is it deep
enough. Meaning, first there must be a focus on all of the Vedic concepts
and structures as they relate to planet signs and houses individually.
Then, the integration of static and dynamic factors needs to happen. And
... You need to know how
planets, signs and houses interact with each other, then interface with
timing methods. As is the case with everything in life, going more deeply
into the right things and (most importantly) to in the correct order, is
more important than learning a lot of things, our order and without a lot
of depth. This is the typical approach to learning Vedic astrology.
The reason the Universal
Astrology system works so well is because it focuses on the Universal
principles, just like every other Science. For example, the rules of
architecture work regardless of culture, system or anything else. If you
do not honor the rules of architecture, the Universal Law of Gravity will
crash your house to the ground.
Similarly, if you do not know the Universal laws of astrology (and all
metaphysics), the Universal Law of Karma will crash your life in no
time. The reason so many astrologers are not good astrology teachers is
because they are not teaching from a foundational point of view, focusing
on the Universal principles.
Here are a few of the most important Universal Principles:
The planets themselves
as karakas (Gods)
The 3 Gunas
The Five elements
The 4 Purusarthas
The Castes (Brahmin/Kshatriya/Vaishya/Sudra)
Gender - Inner and outer
(Masculine / Feminine/Neuter)
Natural Benefic /
Functional Benefic /
Gentle / Cruel
Yogas (Sambandha -
Nature of Houses
Visual / observational
These frameworks not only
underpin Vedic astrology, they underpin all metaphysical systems the
world over, and they always have. This is why there are so many Western
astrologers, and metaphysicians from other disciplines, who take my
courses. Given the heavy emphasis on these common frameworks, yoga
teachers and Ayurvedic practitioners find this certification course to be
But even if you are a
beginner, the frameworks can be easily grasped, then each planet, sign,
house and principal is simply "hung" on that framework. For
Aries is Rajasic (passionate), fiery, masculine, ruled by
Mars, Cardinal, large, quadruped
Scorpio is Tamasic (protective),
watery, feminine, ruled by Mars, fixed, Slender, insect.
Both signs are ruled by Mars,
yet we can see specifically how they are different from each other, and how
they are alike. This is systematic and flawless. Using these frameworks
correctly allows you to simply state each principle, and untangle their
meanings for yourself and others. Of course, this is a simple example. But
all of astrology functions on the complexity of these simple building
By the way, as was
said, these are the
same principles that underpin medicine, architecture, music and anything
else that we can master at a high level. Things
become complicated when we become disconnected from their component
qualities and the Universal principles that create it.
Biggest Problems You Are Facing
PROBLEM #1: Memorization is Not
The reason you are bewildered by astrology, is you
have not mastered these details. When I say "mastered", I don't
mean "memorized". Perhaps you have them memorized some, but
mastery is not memorization. Mastery means you can flawlessly interpret
each of these principles by themselves, which then gives you enormous
skill in synthesizing them in real time. Like
most astrology students ...
you have mistaken
memorization for mastery. This creates a huge "illusion of
understanding" around what you think you know already. Simply because
you have memorized the exaltation and debilitation point of planets, does
not mean you understand "why" the points are there. If you
cannot explain it, simply, to another person, then you do not understand
it yet. As I said already...
that is also the good
news. You have gathered enough information. Your biggest problem is
you need to first understand, then organize all of the data you have
gathered. I will say this right now, you will not be able to do Vedic
astrology well unless you understand the Vedic concepts. That's why the we
start with an entire four-week course on Indian concepts.
Because, knowing these
frameworks deeply, allows you to notice how the principles behind the
rules are more important than the rules themselves. Once this happens, you
start working on higher and higher leverage principles, which permeate the
entire practice. If you've gotten
benefit from my teachings it's because you have been seeing me do this
most of the time. It's why I'm able to...
take very complicated
things and explain them very simply. My knowledge, capacity and
understanding of the principles is much further upstream than yours, on a
much more conceptual level. In the universal Vedic astrology certification
course, I will be teaching you these "upstream" concepts and
methods for nine months straight.
BIG PROBLEM #2: Your
Priorities Are Mixed Up
A lack of prioritizing
is the second big problem you are facing. Not only have you mistaken
memorization for mastery, but your priorities are mixed up.
You have this idea that some subtle, nuanced yoga you have memorized in
one of the harmonic charts, is as important as the dignity of the planet
in the seventh house, for example.
Just like anything else in
life, "priority and sequence" are the most important. For
instance, if you want to make eggs for breakfast. You must do things in
the proper order. First, you crack the egg, you put it in the bowl, you
beat the egg with a fork, you take out a pan, put it on the stove, melt
butter in the pan, etc. If you don't do things in that order, you're not
going to be able to cook eggs.
Let's say that first you
pick up a fork and start moving around in a bowl, yet there is no egg in
the bowl. Then you put butter on the stove, but there's no pan on the
stove yet. You get my drift. This is probably what you are doing in your
astrology studies. You're grasping for priority. You are making certain
things much more important than they actually are. Nothing is in the
... nothing is being done
in the proper order. This is why even though you may make a lot of
correct statements, underneath it all you have no confidence. So, as soon
as the client contradicts something you say (even a little bit), you
completely cave in and think you made a mistake. You are not approaching
the chart systematically, where everything is weighted with the correct
measure of importance. By the way...
... A lot of
"professional" astrologers make these mistakes and are
lacking in confidence as well. So, don't feel so bad. Honestly, it's
pretty pathetic. I've heard so many times where a student asks an
astrologer, "what if the client says something that's not shown in
the chart, then what you do?" And the astrologer will say something
like "well yeah, some things just are shown in the chart so then you
just have to listen to the client"...
... what complete
nonsense! Imagine going to the dentist, and the dentist sees a cavity
in your tooth. But when he tells you about the cavity, you say "I
don't feel anything". So then the dentist says "Oh okay, I guess
the x-ray was wrong". You would never hear this, because the dentist
knows what he's doing, and you as a patient would never stand for such
incompetence. Yet, astrologers not only practice with such low standards,
they freely admit it, and no one seems to pay any attention! So yes, ...
I understand why you have
such low expectations for learning astrology. I will tell you this,
that has never happened to me since I learned how it actually works. There
is never a situation where something "is not shown in the
chart", everything is shown. By the way, when these things happen and
readings, where client contradicts me, I know why it's happening. It is
happening because the client is confused, they are not sure. That's why
they're getting an astrology reading, so...
you can untangle some of
their confusion for them. . But as I said, I want better for you been
to be another incompetent astrologer, lacking confidence in what you're
doing. I want you to not only be able to interpret other people's charts
correctly, but to be able to interpret your own chart correctly as well. I
want you to also understand your place in the cosmos.
These are the things we
focus on in the level I certification course, for nine months, going
deeper into what the structures actually mean, and then doing them in the
proper order. Once you do this, that astrology information you have
gathered becomes incredibly tight.

Even 5-10 years ago it was not possible to deliver
weekly videos that could be watched online. They would have needed to be on
a DVD or a VHS tape - which was very expensive - having to manufacture and

as much VALUE - and I still must make those videos, manuals, upload them,

#3 - 2 Personal
- Check-in Calls with Sam
Even though you have unlimited access to me
online, there is nothing like a personal phone call to help reinforce the
connection, and make sure you are on track. I added this feature to the
Certification course in 2013 and it really helped to keep everyone on the
same page. We will have 2, 15 minute check-in calls. But usually the
class go longer.
Why is this program different?
Century Learning Model
If you were to hire me to teach you privately, I would give you the exact
same lesson plans, in the exact same order that you are getting in this
course. Yet, how much would it cost you to hire me to be your personal
tutor? I will tell you that answer, at least 100.00 / hour. I will be
putting in at least 70 hours on your behalf - which means even at half the
rate, these classes are worth at least $3,500.00 realistically.
Technology allows us to accomplish the same thing, with online video and
communities, the same information, personalization and attention to detail is
possible - and I am able to pass on enormous saving to you.
and One Consistent Voice
Vedic astrology and all ancient, dharmic cultures have a tradition of personal
mentorship that has been broken in this modern era, due to "organization
sponsored" online learning. Although it may seem fun and exciting to get
a lot of different viewpoints while learning, more often than not a "too
many cooks spoil the stew" metaphor applies - as teachers are at
different levels of expertise and use different approaches.
The "one teacher this
week, another teacher the following week" idea may be good for the
teachers, but the students are often bewildered about who to listen to. If
you have learned from my free videos and courses, let me take you through
the whole system.
Community, Forum and Live Class Combination
This revolutionary learning model actually Improves
the One on One Teacher / Student experience - at
least for the introductory / initiatory classes, I truly believe it is an
improvement. Here is why.
1. The video class allows you to look me directly in the eye, as I teach in
an uninterrupted flow, and it allows you to rewind my direct transmission as
many times as you need in order to understand.
2. After digesting these direct transmissions and pondering them, THEN you
get to ask questions in the forum, just using the typed word. You also get
to see the questions and conversations of others, and me answering them AND
you can also answer and engage in the forum yourself - which gives you
confidence to speak about these things (something that would not happen if
it were just you and I together.
3. Then after a few weeks of video and forum we convene for live calls to
discuss what may still be confusing.
Material Taught at the Correct Pace
We have all been there before. We go to a conference, take in 6 classes
in a day and then we do not remember anything we learned because it was just
too much information. Our mind needs time to digest the information we
gather, and reflect upon it - or else it will not get integrated. This
weekly online learning format allows you to learn in a natural way - so you
are not overwhelmed. Homework assignments and constant dialogue in the forum
also keeps you up to date and makes sure your questions get answered.
More Affordable - More Accountable
I am an independent teacher and practitioner - not an
"organization" so I do not have any loyalties to anyone but you,
the student. I do not have any teachers I need to pay or overhead to
maintain / secretaries to pay (actually I do, but I am able to handle
that). The bottom line is this. I run my business very efficiently, so I
am able to keep things lean and pass those savings on to you.
This also means that I am more available,
accessible and accountable to you at every turn. You are studying with me,
dealing with me as if we were neighbors. This is how I see it. I always
ask myself "is there a way that I can make this more affordable,
easier and better for the students", and when I find a way, I just do
it - rather than having to slough through the bureaucracy of an organization.
Let's Add up the Real Value
It is really easy to lose sight of how much value
is being passed along, so I decided to break it down for you - mainly based
on how much of my time you are getting and the value of that.
As I said before, this is exactly the same material I would be teaching
you if you hired me to be your private tutor. And as I said, I actually feel
like this online model is even superior to private tutoring, because you get
to see others asking questions and you also get to engage with others.
I have estimated the hourly
rate to be $40.00 / hour - but it would actually be 100.00 / hour for
private tutelage AND in that case you do not get the benefit of everyone
You Either See the Value or Not - But You Need to Act
(Space is Limited and The Price is Rising)
Sam's Vedic astrology certification is adding a most exciting and fulfilling
dimension to my other astrology knowledge because Sam brings in the depth and
beauty and wisdom of the ancient Vedic chasers which ties in perfectly with my
spiritual beliefs and practices. I am currently studying both traditional
astrology which deeply respects karma theory, which I thorooughly enjoy and ,
and psychological astrology which I find very interesting but disagree with the
fundamental precept of it that we are the creators of our own destiny. What I
especially appreciate about Sam's course is that he makes the ancient scriptures
utterly relevant in modern day through powerful reading of the horoscope. Karen
James Golden Sun Astrologer www.goldensunastrology.com
Sam's style of teaching his Vedic Astrology certification course is uniquely
different. Your journey with Sam will begin with a solid foundation of the
origin of Jyotish and its deep roots within the Vedas. This is a rare
opportunity for one to immerse their self into this beautiful spiritual science.
Whether you're a novice or advanced student of Jyotish or the Vedas you will
gain tremendous knowledge that will be invaluable to deepening your awareness
and understanding of your karmic path and the journey of the soul. Whether
you're goal is to become a professional Vedic Astrologer or to discover your
true Self, Sam's certification course is for you! Come join Sam and interact
with all of his students as we illuminate our lives. Blessings! Janet Scott (Meruputri)
I have been taking Sam's class and find it very thorough and comprehensive. I
really find his methodology very user friendly. He sends a synopsis of the class
ahead of time and gives an hour and a half lecture which can be listened to
again and again. He also has us answer a questionaire every week which we can
also use to gauge how we are doing. There is an interactive form for all of us
to engage in if we so choose. He has taken his time to make sure that the
fundamentals are well understood, so that we can build upon this structure. It
is like math, if you learn the principles well, then you can easily work out the
math, if not, then you are completely lost. This was the trouble with me in the
past, that the teacher flew past the fundamentals in four or five classes and
then beelined thru predictions and analysis. I am very pleased and intend to
take the follow up to this course next year. I am very satisfied with the
certification course so far and look forward to each new week as it unfolds.
Thanks Sam. Jeanine Ligon
|"I have only started my interest is Astrology a year and half ago, in my earnest to learn, I have purchased countless books, watched numerous videos and interacted in various forums to "get" Astrology. Although most of them did help me in getting a handle, it also created a lot of confusion as well. In short the puzzle of Astrology was vast and complex and I was having difficulties putting them together. While looking for a solution to this, I came upon Sam's website. I was intrigued by his approach to teach Astrology online. I took the leap of faith in signing up for the course and what a revelation its been. I was blown away by Sam's clear explanations and frameworks. The frameworks helped me understand and put in place the various puzzles that was swirling in my mind. His amazing ability to convey deep astrological principles in clear terms and demonstrating its application in charts further bolts down your understanding. I would definitely recommend his course to those who are looking for an authentic astrology guru who teaches this divine super science in an exciting format but absolutely anchored to its Vedic source."

|Before finding Sam Geppi, my seeking of Vedic Astrology knowledge was not providing me with any cohesiveness that allowed me to make any real sense of my chart. When I undertook Sam’s Level 1 Certification course, I was relieved to discover how well he structured the course, layer upon layer, so it all began to make sense to me. I had many ‘ah ha!’ moments along the way, gaining deeper and deeper understanding of myself and how my life was proceeding and how I could aspire to higher expressions of many aspects of my life. I could see where I was caught up in particular areas of my life and more importantly, how and what changes I could be undertaking to make the most of the opportunity to spiritually evolve as discovered in my chart.
As my understanding, skills and confidence grew, I was then able to assist my friends to understand parts of themselves and the potentialities that lay before them as shown in their charts.
I’m not a tech savvy person and that didn’t really matter as navigating Sam’s course site was easy and even though I achieved Level 1 Certification, I can still access my course material anytime.
The support from Sam as a teacher and his assistant teacher, Je! Craft, was always there. Our questions posted in the student forum were always answered. The live Conference Calls clarified points for me too, and the interaction there was very supportive.I found Sam’s teaching style worked well for me, the class manuals are clear, and the design of the homework questions, once answered, brought deeper understanding of that week’s class. In fact, the end of course Exam questions did the same for me and brought the whole course material together. I was so excited when I completed because I realized how easy Sam had made this to pull together and understand.
I highly recommend doing Level 1 Certification, even if its just to understand yourself at a deeper level. I’m looking forward to completing Level 2 Certification and to always bring a high quality chart reading to those who ask for my help as a Professional Vedic Astrologer.
Thank you Sam, I am deeply grateful for your inspiring teaching.

|I have found Sam's
certification course to be the best course on Vedic astrology I have taken.
Sam's clarity in his teachings and breakdown of the these ancient principles
makes understanding this complex and difficult subject attainable. Before Sam's
classes I studied Jyotish because I liked it but I didn't think it was possible
for me to become a professional astrologer as it was too hard for me to put it
all together. Sam's style of teaching and layout of the modules has made me
think that yes even I can read another persons chart. On this alone I would
highly recommend the course, but there's even more reasons: the downloadable
audios and manual as well. I can review, listen on my Iphone and read as often
as I need to. I love taking classes in person so I didn't think I would have the
motivation to do this course but I found that I do and being able to review the
videos and audios over and over is a big help. Plus there is an active forum and
Sam will answer your questions there for real. Thank you Sam for decoding
Jyotish for the 21st century.
I found this astrology certification course to be very helpful and useful. Sam
is an excellent teacher and I found his classes very clear and profound, and
interesting and stimulating at the same time. Even though I studied before I
defintely recomand this course for all serious astrology students and also
spiritual seekers that wants to explore in depth this fascinating ancient Vedic
As a teacher Sam is very organized clear and conscise and did I mention
humorous. This makes following and understanding the teachings very easy and
entertaining. But what I like the most is Sam's teaching is grounded in vedanta.
The very backbone of vedic astrology. Nick
For me, it is more than "just" astrology class. It is the whole
teaching about life, every single aspect of it. Amazing and magical, at the same
time. Thank you, Sam. Iva, Croatia
Have a few parting Questions For You:
you been studying astrology or Vedic astrology for years -
long enough to have mastered it, but still get really tongue
tied when you see a chart and try to explain it?
|Do you tell
yourself, "yeah I understand that (astrology
concept)", but I just can't put it into words",
when you try to explain something to a friend. Yet deep down
you know you are lying to yourself?,.. and that you really
you secretly wish that you could be an astrologer, or make a
living helping people where astrological counseling played a
major part in it?
|Do you believe
you are a "Spiritual Person", paying attention to
things that promote personal growth and goodness. Yet you
lack a formal structure to your spiritual practices and
think becoming more focused about your
"undisciplined" astrology studies would really
you feel a certain jealousy when you hear some
astrologers speak, feeling that you actually understand it
better - but know you lack a system and the technical skills
that could allow you to organize all of your information
|Do you see
yourself as a spiritual guide to others? Are you naturally
in that role - and not getting paid for it. Instead you work
a job that just makes you money, but there is no passion in
it and your wisdom is not helping others as much as it
you afraid that time is passing you by, and you will not
realize your spiritual potential in this lifetime - and you
see how understanding astrology could really help you
realize that purpose better (and help others understand
their purpose too) ?
|Are you a
healer already, such as a yoga teacher, or massage
therapist, or energy worker - and secretly wish you had the
skills to understand your clients even better and how you
could actually charge more for your services if you
understood their cycles better?
you feel a constant connection to the Universe and feel that
you are actually a composite of universal wisdom - just
under the illusion of separateness - and that learning
astrology is one of the best ways (if not the best way) to
reconnect to your full celestial nature?
|Did you know
that in the ancient, wise past - all educated people learned
astrology? Knowing this do you feel it is your duty to learn
it also, and share this wisdom with others.
you feel that the knowledge of astrology could benefit your
life in all areas - relationships and career - and helping
your loved ones?,.. But think it is just too complicated to
learn? (Actually it is not).
thought of studying astrology formally before, but thought
it was just too complicated and expensive?
If you answered yes to
any of these questions - or even several of them - then please
consider getting trained - as what I have written here could change
your life - Really, Because Studying
Astrology Has Changed MY
Your Astrology Success,
Founder American Academy of
