Course Description

Life works a certain way in accordance with God’s plan for Human Development. If we follow the way that things work, the greatest amount of happiness and fulfillment will be experienced. If we expect things to work in a way that they don’t, we will be disappointed. Such a simple principle, one that I think everyone would agree upon. Unfortunately, which ways work to produce happiness and which ways don’t work are not so simple. There are so many ways that people try to be happy, and all these ways are indicated in the horoscope by the planets that influence each other. Due to the many variances of planetary influences, everyone essentially plays the game of life based on their own strategies and everyone has some strategies that don’t serve them well – they don’t produce happiness, just unhappiness.

In this course we will discuss every possible planetary influence that leads to a condition of feeling shame, pride, happiness, lack, misery or frustration. We will discuss these influences along with your horoscopes so that you can see why you have the fulfillment you have and what strategies you can change to improve the quality of your life.

The principles that I will be using are the Lajjitaadi Avasthas, which means the Ashamed and other Conditions. These Avasthas are the heart of Parashara Astrology and important for medical astrology, making predictions, reading a person’s behavior and reading the fulfillment of a person. I consider these Avasthas the single most important astrological technique.

About Ernst

Ernst Wilhelm had his horoscope read at the age of 20. After talking about many mundane things the astrologer, Nancy, pulled out an ephemeris and table of houses and without any explanation started to teach Ernst how to calculate horoscopes. She then gave Ernst the books necessary to calculate a horoscope and sent him on his way wondering, “what am I supposed to do with these big fat books?” A year later Ernst had his answer when heartbroken from a rough relationship he turned to astrology for all the answers, and found them there, upon which he decided to give up his natural healing career and devote his life to astrology.

Ernst Wilhelm, Vedic Astrologer, Author, Teacher

Ernst vigorously studied Western Astrology for 3 years, after which he felt unsatisfied and being at a loss at what to do, he followed up on the feeling that he should go and live in an Ashram for 8 months. A month after arriving there he had a dream on the night of his 25th birthday that prompted him to purchase a copy of Brihat Parashara Hora Shastra, one of the foundation books of Vedic-Astrology, from that day forward in 1995 he has devoted his life to studying the Astrology hidden and tucked away in the books found only in India. Thanks to the ashram meditation schedule of 20 hours a week, Ernst rapidly learned Vedic Astrology and after leaving the Ashram in late 1995 Ernst started to read horoscopes and teach Vedic Astrology as his full time career.

Since then Ernst has published four books and written thousands of pages for his course manuals. Ernst has taught extensive and very involved courses on Vargas, Dasas, Muhurta, Jaimini Sutras, Transits, Avasthas, Varshaphala, Brihat Parashara Hora Shastra, Compatibility, Medical Astrology, Rahu and Ketu, and rectification. All Ernst’s courses and books are available at and

Jaimini Sutras is one of Ernst’s favorite branches of astrology. In order to study Jaimini thoroughly and originally, Ernst began to learn Sanskrit in 2000 after being unsatisfied with the available translations. Since then Ernst has made many ground breaking researches in Jaimini techniques. Ernst has also made ground breaking researches in the areas of compatibility, Muhurta, Parashara’s Avasthas, Shad Bala, Varshaphala, medical astrology, gem therapy, transits and divisional charts.

Srishti Wilhelm, Programmer of Kala Vedic Astrology Software

In conjunction with his wife, Srishti, Ernst has developed Kala Vedic Astrology Software, a multi language software popular in the US, Germany, Russia, Hungary, Iran and Israel. Ernst and Srishti have also developed online report software for both themselves and third parties. Some of these reports are available at

As his friends always tell him, “even Ernst can’t use his brain 24 hours a day.” So when he is not thinking about astrology Ernst spends his time trail running, riding bikes, practicing martial arts, weight lifting, gardening, or working with his hands on cars, bicycles, painting, jewelry and even watches. Ernst believes that good diet, exercise, manual skill development and good hard labor are critical for everyone and that doing these things helps maintain a balance that provides better functioning of the brain, emotions and spirit.
