About Deva R.
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 too.
All data gathered by our senses is processed through the mind, which is represented by the Moon. Then we can use our intelligence, represented by Mercury and Jupiter, to act. Our decisions propel us forward by Mars into new karmic territory. At the same time, the chart and the display of our planets at birth, is only potential and not fixed. We have free will to act beneficially for our self and others. Or not.
Astrology has evolved, beginning at the end of last century, into the science of spiritual and psychological evolution. For the student and future practitioner, it can be a Path to Enlightenment. The astrologer should therefore try to practice some form of daily meditation, as well as remaining up to date and educated using the most modern and correct astronomical mathematics and zodiac. Having a teacher (like myself), well versed in both, is an important consideration in the correct application of astrological practices as well as helping one to achieve the desired result in connection with cosmic principles.
IMHO, a modern astrologer should practice using only up-to-date astronomical references, especially as it relates to the Procession of the Equinox, incorporating some Western techniques, although emphasizing Vedic astrological systems of interpretation. Astrology is based on astronomy and astrophysics as its basis. By also using tropical as well as sidereal zodiac, the astrologer will be able to more thoroughly examine the astrological realms.
I taught college level computer technology from 2000 to 2005. Although I have been writing about spirituality since 2006 and practicing Vedic Astrology for many years, in 2017 I decided to take the plunge into teaching this art and science. Presently I have a handful of serious students and have developed a certification course in Vedic Spiritual Astrology at three levels.
My own life has become an evolution in consciousness. Still - the bills need to paid. However, I discovered that when one's desires become aligned with the will of the Universe, then interesting, unusual and positive events begin to happen.
I look forward to meeting and teaching more students from Takelessons. Welcome to the journey - The Path of the Nine Planets (Navagrahas) of Vedic Astrology !!

Deva Roberts is an awesome astrologer! I've had my chart done twice before and this one was by far the most thorough and helpful. Deva is brilliant! I'm very grateful that I found him to do my chart during this challenging time of my life. I now have more clarity and direction.Show More
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.Show More
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.Show More
Deva is an excellent teacher who patiently explains astrology concepts.
We had a spiritual meeting in our house and asked Deva to give a talk about the astrology he teaches. Not all of the people there were familiar with astrology but everyone was very impressed by his knowledge and his accuracy and many of them expressed a desire to learn more and take classes. He has, to me, a very unique method of combining Vedic and Western systems that provide a much broader scope and more accurate calculating. He is a very pleasant and wonderful person and we highly recommend his classes.Show More
Deva is so kind, patient and knowledgeable. He takes a difficult subject and makes it really easy to grasp. I've tried a couple different teachers on this subject matter and they do not compare. I highly recommend Deva and his teachings.
Deva is a great teacher and person. I've learned so much about myself and how the universe functions cosmically. Has helped my life so much! Highly recommend!!
I highly recommend Deva as an astrology teacher. He knows his subject matter not only from his vast knowledge and love of this particular field, but from his intuitive skills as well.
