Here’s the front page review from Astrology Center of America–


Astrology Center of America Newsletter, David Roell, July 17, 2012


Vedic Secrets to Happiness, by American Jyotishi Anne Beversdorf, is a book of Vedic remedies. I’ve got half a dozen books of remedies. Most of them are dull and full of gibberish. Many years ago Anne scraped up the money

for pujas and to her surprise and delight, found they actually worked, curing her of depression. Encouraged, she started prescribing simple remedies for her friends, and, to their surprise, they worked. After many years experience, she wrote this book. The heart of it is planetary assessments. Go through them until you find the planet that hurts, and then go to the remedies section for that planet. There is a variety of remedies, some of them quite dazzling. Is your Mars giving you problems? Throw cinnamon red hots into a stream on Tuesday. Saturn got you down? Listen to Requiem music on Saturdays! I can do that!


B. If you would like a PDF of the assessment pages, please write a review of this book for and let me know about it!  I’ll email you the PDF.  Several readers have mentioned using these pages frequently to assess ongoing remedy opportunities.


C. This review tells the tale of the results of using the book’s remedies for less than two weeks–to resolve a nearly-three-year problem.  Check it out HERE.

2. Enhanced Living with Neptune


Angels of Abraham I’ve been challenging myself to practice Neptune-Living on a daily basis.  This is in response to the release of Neptune from its long history of Saturn domination (see The Great Saturn-Neptune Divorce in previous newsletters).  It’s not easy to let go and trust.  It’s also not easy to stop myself from daydreaming and LISTEN to the quiet, “bug-antennae” messages about what to do at any given moment.


It requires getting used to the quality and value of LEGITIMATE down-time.  There are days when all I want to do is work on tapestries (which is Fun for me and means I don’t get my newsletter out on time!)  But when push comes to shove, I DO get the work done, and it feels a lot easier when it’s done in rhythm with the time.


All this reminds me of a statement many of you may have heard me make: “You never hear the liver cell say ‘Oh–it would be so much better to be a Brain cell or a Heart cell.'” If the liver cell tried to be a heart cell it would leave a gap in the correct functioning of the liver.
Each of us, no matter how small or insignificant our role in life, must learn to fill our own very important tiny role within the whole which we can only do by BEING OURSELVES.  We can’t force ourselves to meet some constructed idea of how we Should be or what we Should be doing.  Listen to who you are and BE that person.  Don’t censor or redirect the real you!
Hmmm.  It occurs to me that not accepting ourselves fully–trying to be the brain cell when we’re really a liver cell or a bowel cell or whatever, may quite literally confuse our own cells and make us ill. Think about it!

Angels of Abraham 4. PODCAST:  Anne’s Lecture at United Astrologer Conference, New Orleans, 2012.

5. What People are Saying, OR Sweet Words about Anne.
 Angels of Abraham
 From David Roell, astrological publisher and bookseller (see who has become my number one fan and supporter (e.g. Nobody says it better!).  This came through before he read and commented on my book…
I have known Anne Beversdorf since 2003. She is an accomplished astrologer with 20 years experience. She says she has read some 14,000 charts and credits time spent at StarScroll 800 as a telephone astrologer for sharpening her skills. She is accomplished with both Western and Vedic astrology, having studied with Hart de Fouw and K.N. Rao, two of the leading Vedic astrologers. Anne has written for The Mountain Astrologer, as well as for many other journals and newsletters, including her own. She has given seminars in the US and abroad. She is the author of Vedic Secrets to Happiness, which at the moment is on my desk. Anne Beversdorf is, in sum, one of the outstanding astrologers of the present day. From long experience, she is sensitive to the needs of her clients, offering insights into psychological blind spots, as well as effective astrological remedies and useful predictive analysis.

Since 1993, I have run the Astrology Center of America, which, since 1996 has been on-line as I have long been the nation’s leading astrological bookstore. Since 2002 I have published books under Astrology Classics, which now number nearly 50 titles. Since I first got into astrology as a profession in 1986, I have met most of the leading astrologers of the day. I am pleased to count Anne Beversdorf not only as an outstanding astrologer, but also as a personal friend.


6. IONS Podcasts—GREAT Lectures free,
                                            for YOU
A.  Dr. Marcus Gitterle, of Wimberly, Texas,  is a specialist on how Angels of Abraham the human body ages (or doesn’t) who does NOT want to sell you anything–tho after you listen to THIS LECTURE to the Austin IONS group, you’ll probably want to order his book.  I didn’t want to listen to another anti-aging set of rules, but this guy blew the rules (and me) right out of the water.  (And I immediately went out and bought the super-cheap supplement that helps me remember what I went into the other room to get.)
Angels of Abraham B.  Brad Kittel, owner of Tiny Texas Houses gave a tremendously exciting lecture (“Saving the World Through Salvage”) about sustainable living and everything else to Austin IONS a while back.  I’ve been meaning to get it to you, and now I give you the actual video of the lecture Hang onto your hats.  He talks a mile a minute and every word is worthwhile.  Here it is:

7. Baby William Update:  And Mom Update, too!
William John Beversdorf, my first nephew, born over 4 MONTHS early back in January, finally LEFT the hospital this month!  His grandmother, his Aunt Paula and Uncle Krin made the trip to Missouri to welcome him home.  Krin uploaded some videos HERE, and the hospital photographer took official pictures the next day, which are HERE.
This year marked several milestones for Mom… Not only is William her first grandchild, but she is also a new bride at 87, after being a widow for 31 years.  “Papa Joe” is a treasure and the rest of us are thrilled with TWO new family members.

8. Audio Mantras –Now available on my website!

I’ve finally recorded and uploaded a series of Mantras to my web site.  If you are interested in astrological remedies, you can find planetary mantras at my website under “Astro-Remedies” and then selecting the planet whose mantra you’re seeking.  A full page of long mantra links can be found HERE.  Words are included.

My most-frequently used mantra is the Mrityunjaya Mantra.  You can listen to it, and to any of the others at the link above.  Thank you, Ricia Doren, for the Ganapati Mantra audio!
