Having been a professional instructor for almost 20 years, I teach a form of Astrology that is termed "Western Vedic Astrology." This system uses both the modern Western Greek/Persian methods combined with the ancient original ancient East Indian Vedic methods. In this way the student, in a short period of time learns to evaluate a person beyond mundane psychology to the psycho-spiritual level.

The fusion of both systems creates makes astrology inspiring, fulfilling and enjoyable to learn because it is encompassing, fun and enlightening to the student. The outcome is an understanding of the planets and the cosmos at a deeper level than ordinary Astrology can afford.

The purpose and outcome of learning Western Vedic Astrology is to become a well trained and knowledgeable astrologer who not only able to assess the present and understand the past, but able to see the future as well.

About Deva

My serious Vedic astrological and spiritual education began some decades ago. I follow my intuition and try to be analytical at the same time. My karmas and desires compel me to act, just like anyone else. However, we are not only a ball of feelings and desires. We possess a mind and intelligence

Having lived in India for 8 years, I've visited many astrologers. Most of them gave bad advice or incorrect predictions. When Deva did my chart, I was a little skeptical at first. Then I realized, that he wasn't here to predict my future like a fortune teller but guide me on the right path instead. He is an astrologer and life coach in one. After taking his classes, I now have a better sense of direction in my life. His strategy has helped me become more self-aware and become more accepting of myself.

I have been a student of Deva’s for about a year now, I take lessons with him in person. Deva has helped deepen my understanding of astrology immensely! I have learned so much from him and have excelled greatly in my astrology practice. I recommend taking classes with him if you are serious about learning astrology. Astrology is very intricate and it takes years to learn. I have found that taking lessons in person has helped me learn faster and understand things deeper than studying by myself. Or even taking classes online, as long as there is a teacher involved to talk to and provide guidance and insight. Deva is a great teacher! He is very knowledgeable and intuitive, which is perfect because astrology is both a science and an art, it takes both knowledge and intuition.
Veronica
Deva is an excellent teacher who patiently explains astrology concepts.

I will help you develop a strategy that works for you. No made pre flop ranges. Not trying to impose you the way I play the game. Poker is a very complex game and understanding your context is very important to build a profitable and comfortable strategy for you. The initial step of my program is to identify your current level and limitations, including agressiveness, bankroll, objectives and slowly introducing concepts that will change your game (Forever) without making you risk more than you should.
Ps.: I am specialized in Live cash games.

About Bruno

Hello my name is Bruno and I simply LOVE POKER. I am a semi pro player (I play part time) but every time I play I want to crush the tables. It was not always like that and before working hard on my game I was a big loser so I know exactly what does it take to fine tune your game and turn you into

Had to write a separate review for this subject. Jamone taught me step-by-step how to use my Cannon Rebel EOS T5. I am a youtube vlogger, and I was looking to create higher quality videos for my viewers. Jamone gave me tons of camera knowledge to better my videos. Thanks!
