Jyotiṣa Guru
Jaimini Scholar

I have worked as a professional astrologer since 2004 and see horoscopes on a daily basis wherein I guide clients to better decissions and advise Vedic Remedial Measures to overcome karmic difficulties. I was given the title of Jyotiṣa Guru in 2002 by my teacher Pt. Sanjay Rath and have since then spent much time travelling and studying personally from my teacher in both India and abroad. The lineage from which this tradition stems from is that of Śrī Achtyutānanda Dasa of Orissa, India.In my time as an astrologer, I have since presented numerous conference and workshop papers in India, UK and USA, several magazine articles and have participated in the publication of two books, of which one was a solo publication.

In 2011 I received a Masters Diploma for having completed a five year course on the Mahaṛṣi Jaimini Upadeśa Sutra. A course which I also teach through RAMA (

I am presently a full time astrologer carrying out horoscope consultations for clients, writing articles and books, as well as teaching students the art of Vedic Astrology.

I hope you will find this website useful to you, be it for learning Vedic Astrology or for seeking guidance on your personal horoscope. Feel free to contact me for guidance on either topic.
Yours sincerely, Visti Larsen.
