Jyotiṣa or Vedic Astrology is the study of 'Jyoti,' which, means light in Sanskrit. Jyotiṣa, then, is a quest to understand how the light of the sun, moon and stars illuminate the self through the lifespan.
Light illuminates us and is simultaneously obscured from us at the time and place of our birth. The celestial light on our nativity has a profound bearing on us throughout our lifetime and informs the attitudes we will take in our life to wealth, desire, ethics and spirituality. The positions of the celestial luminaries in the sky at the moment of birth influence our body, mind, health, intelligence, relationships, family, finances, career choices and religious preferences. As such, “we are born at a given moment in a given place and like the vintage years of wine, we have the qualities of the year and of the season in which we are born” (Jung).
Jyotiṣa kindles our self- awareness to our subconscious patterns and the archetypes we are embodying and offers us remedial measures to balance the bhūtas within us to ensure we face the mysteries of our lives with harmony. As an esoteric science, Jyotiṣa has traditionally always concomitantly been practised with Āyurveda to restore the balance of the bhūtas that inform the well-being of the mind, body, senses and consciousness.
I draw on Jyotiṣa as a powerful tool to support the atma jñāna or self-knowledge of my clients. Jyotiṣa is an essential adjunct to the psyche-therapeutic process as it illuminates subliminal tendencies clients have but are not aware of. Moreover, in keeping with tradition, Jyotiṣa is an indisputable source of diagnosis to any Āyurvedic treatment.
I do not use Jyotiṣa as predictive, hoary or electional astrology, instead, I elaborate and emphasize the archetypal foundations of my clients psyches’ making them aware of the unconscious habitual predispositions that inform them and how planetary movements affect them personally. In essence, a Jyotiṣa reading is an unraveling of the subconscious mind as the astrological chart is map of the psyche and the way it works.
Jyotiṣa readings will illuminate anyone to know more about:
- Deeper aspects of their personality
- Mental, physical and spiritual wellbeing
- Life transitions and challenges
Jyotiṣa readings are to enhance a person’s atma jñāna or soul knowledge and are windows into the subconscious mind.
Initial Consultation will be an extended reading about the client’s personality, life purpose, karmas and current situation. Attention will be given to the current experience of time and how the client is organising around it.
Subsequent Consultations address specific questions related to life transitions, relationships and wellbeing.
