The ordering process consists of two easy steps:

First step: birth information

Please write an email to

In that email mention:

1. Your name.

2. Your birth information:

    * Day of birth (between 1 and 31)
    * Month of birth, to prevent confusion please write the name of the month in full. For example not 3 but March.
    * Year of birth
    * Town of birth (in case it is a small town place mention the nearest city), state of birth, country of birth.
    * Your time of birth (please mention 3 o'clock in the afternoon as 15.00).

Course Agreements The best way to avoid misunderstandings

1. Registration is confirmed as soon as the completed application form is received.

2. Roeland de Looff MA or the local teacher of Dirah Academy International is the course supervisor.

3. As soon as registration is confirmed, the course material and the personal chart will be sent to the student.

4. The course supervisor is obliged to return the completed assignments within seven days after receiving the assignments; both corrected and furnished with comments. Exceptions to this rule are situations beyond the control of the supervisor, e.g. sickness and holidays. The student will receive notice when this occurs.

5. A good student-supervisor relationship is essential. The supervisor will do everything he can to guide the student through the material. The student should always be polite. If according to the supervisor inappropriate behaviour takes place the student will receive one warning. If the student persists he will loose all rights. 

6. The student has the right to support by email.

7. If the student does not send in assignments for a period of three months or longer the student will loose all rights.

8. Paid terms will never be refunded.

9. Once the final assignment has been assessed as satisfactory, the course supervisor is obliged to issue the student with the certificate of Applied Vedic Astrology. A second chance is possible!
