What is Jyotish / Vedic Astrology?
Jyotish or Vedic Astrology as it is known in the West, is an in-depth study of the constellations and planets in relation to our human existence. The word Jyotish is derived from the Sanskrit word 'Jyoti', meaning that which illuminates or gives us light. Jyotish then, can be understood as a divine science that helps us understand with the help of our kundali (horoscope) and the positioning of the planets at the time of our birth, exactly who we are, where we came from, the journey we've had in the past, and were we are meant to go in this lifetime. We use Jyotish to help understand our karmic patterns that have been created in the past, so that we can break free from these repetitive cycles and reach our ultimate goal of Mukti (uniting with the Divine).
How does Jyotish work?
Based on your specific date, time and place of birth, your horoscope is casted and we will discover where the planets were located in the cosmos at that particular moment. Using this information, we get a snapshot of what karma you are bringing from a past life, that will be played out in this lifetime. The planets placement is crucial in understanding their influence over your life here on Earth. Given that we are a part of the greater Cosmos, your horoscope gives you an understanding of what your role is towards life by knowing what you have accumulated as karma in previous lifetimes on this planet or others.
How can I benefit from Jyotish?
Jyotish sheds light on understanding who you really are, where did you come from, why you are here, and where you need to go to achieve your future goals. A Jyotish reading can help open up doors in knowing why certain circumstances have occurred in your life, and how to fix them. If you've had challenges in relationships, marriage, family matters, your career, money and finances, inheritance or wealth concerns, pregnancy and children's matters etc, a Jyotish reading will help you gain insight as to why those things happened and what you can do to help alleviate the negative karma from repetition.
What can Jyotish help me with?
Jyotish can help you understand pretty much any area of your life - from your health and wellness, to your relationships and marriage difficulties or challenges. It gives us a clear understanding of everything happening in your life, or what is to happen, and how to correct or prepare for those events.
