One of the most unique offerings at Wasatch Ayurveda & Yoga is the emphasis on Jyotish, or Vedic Astrology. Jyotisha serves as one of the Vedic pillars upon which our studio is supported, and is recognized as being equally important as any Ayurveda or Yoga practice.
Jyotisha is an ancient astrological science originating from India that is used to keep track of time, energetic periods or eras (known as Yugas), and to bring awareness of the Self and its tendencies/dispositions. This form of astrology differs from Western astrology in very important ways.
Jyotish uses the Sidereal zodiac, rather than the Tropical zodiac that is often used by Western astrologers. Unlike Western astrology, Jyotisha is not based off the Gregorian calendar and takes into account the procession of the Equinox, which makes the positioning of the planets more accurate. This means that the constellations (or houses) differ about 24 degrees when comparing the two different zodiacs
Jyotisha is based off of three things: date of birth, time of birth, and place of birth, which allows for an extremely accurate reading of your chart, based on where the planets and stars were at the moment of your birth. While Vedic astrologers pay close attention to the Ascendant, Sun, and Moon signs, there is heavy focus given to the Moon, or Chandra, as the Moon represents our consciousness. This makes Vedic Astrology an excellent tool for exploring the depths of our psyche and expanding our awareness.
While Jyotisha is an incredible tool for collecting awareness in a multitude of things, it should never be depended upon blindly or without consciousness. Let Jyotish be a guide towards deeper observation rather than a list of rules to live by. Connect and have a conversation with the sky – one that releases the light of awareness within you. Let your own self reflection become your greatest teacher.
BOOK DATE AND TIME FOR ASTROLOGY READING WITH TIM LEWIS
ALOHA SHANTHI WILL CONTACT YOU VIA PHONE OR E-MAIL TO TAKE PAYMENT AND CONFIRM THE BOOKING.
Schedule a Reading with us. A Jyotish Vedic birth chart reading is around 90 minutes and examines the positions of the planets and constellations at the time you were born. Based on your birth date, birth time, and birth location, the positioning within your chart directly relates to your energetic karmas and the fundamental purposes and qualities you possess in this lifetime. Jyotish is a great practice of self awareness, and while it can be used for predicational purposes, we approach this science as a method of Svadhyaya, or self-study. By bringing awareness your karmas, you become more empowered to surf the cosmic waves created by the planetary bodies. Our sessions are informative and educational, leaving you with the knowledge of how things are laid out and more importantly, the “why” behind it all. We strive to educate and give you the confidence to self-seek and study.
For consultations, please have your birth date, time, and location ready. Make sure your time of birth is as correct as possible!
