  13. The split payment option is available for those students that want to pay for the courses by dividing it over 2 months. You may choose, the full payment option if you would like to pay for the courses in full. The difference between the split versus the full payment option is that in the split payment method, only half of the course is accessible on first payment. The second part of the course will be accessible on completion of the second payment. Please also note that once you have signed up for the split payment option, you may not cancel the payments to the course, ie. the second payment will be scheduled and completed in the subsequent month. 
  14. I am very busy during the day with my professional scientific research, and astrology is a secondary profession. While I’m making my best efforts to respond to all messages in a timely fashion on the forum, I’ll be slower than usual during a few weeks when my professional work gets remarkably overwhelming or when I am on vacation. I will do my best and will get to it eventually. I hope you can be patient when this happens.
  15. My techniques are both astronomically and mathematically precise. With that, I combine both scientific and spiritual sides. It drains a lot of my energy to focus on the content in the videos, teach and create new content. I do my best! Make sure you are a serious student who would like to dive deeper into this vast world of astrology before signing up for the courses. If you are not sure about the quality of the content, I encourage you to watch these videos on YouTube and other channels before signing up for the courses or tutoring. Only once you are full happy with the example content, I encourage you to sign up for the courses or tutoring sessions or memberships. As it involves a huge amount of work in creating new content and in fairness to that, once you have purchased the membership or courses, there will be no refunds or cancellations of the payment. Please keep this in mind before you make any purchases on this website, www.learn-astrology.com.

  16. It is very important that you are aware I use a different ayanamsa or calculation settings for casting your chart compared to traditional Vedic astrologers. I expect you to use the Free birth chart calculator on my website and make sure you are happy with the chart that is calculated before taking the video lectures as taught by me. In case you have disagreements with the ayanamsa or your birth chart, then I would advise you to read the articles listed on my website. Especially, if you are a person of Indian origin, it is very likely that you will have different birth charts for the examples I discuss in the courses with my calculations. Therefore, it is highly recommended that you are aware of these calculations before signing up for the courses. Although, bear in mind that the techniques that I teach in the video tutorials can be applied to any astrology birth chart. If you realize the difference in the ayanamsa after signing up for the courses or video tutorials has been completed, please note that there will not be any refunds or cancellations.
