What is Vedic Astrology and How Does it Relate to Psychology?
Vedic Astrology is the universal science of light called 'Jyotish' in the Sanskrit language,
it offers a mapping of the planets at the time of birth. Our vedic astrology chart helps us to narrow in on our soul's deeper purpose or destiny by revealing our life direction and the blocks that keep us from living from that place. When we aren't aligned with our true calling, we often become anxious, depressed, and physically depleted. Living from our inherent creativity helps to keep our health in balance, inspires passion toward our true potential, and enables us to connect more deeply with ourselves and others.
