Lecture by Edith Hathaway, June 5, 2003, Phoenix, Arizona, USA at the 5th Annual Certification Conference on Vedic Astrology, sponsored by the American College of Vedic Astrology (ACVA).
With chart data, comments & updates by Edith Hathaway © 2013.
Edith is introduced by David Frawley, Director, American Institute of Vedic Studies.
A planet operates at maximum strength and comfort when in its most powerful placement by sign (and house), the opposite when debilitated – though correction can bring surprising elevation in life, through Neecha Bhanga Raja yoga. The study of example charts helps to assess the many variations that can occur with exalted and debilitated planets. The 2003 lecture handout is also included within the PDF.
Please note that Charts #1 & #9 (Mia Farrow and Albert Einstein, respectively) are discussed at greater length in Edith’s book, In Search of Destiny: Biography, History & Culture As Told Through Vedic Astrology, ©2012.
