An Energy That Grabs You: For Sophia – June

How do you decide things? Your gut responds with certainty. Emotions surface with compelling force. You recognise patterns from past experiences, in this life or another, and may think all this resides “inside you”. But that is only a particular perspective. There is another more liberating. Everything you identify as you—your body, mind, memory, soul, Read More…

The Myth of Personal Destiny

Do you worry about what you are meant to do with your life? What an absurd question, you might think, especially if you have read deeply in yoga philosophy, particularly the Bhagavad Gita. Undifferentiated consciousness, acting through the ego, leads you to exactly where you are meant to be. All you ever do, as you Read More…

The Chart of Gandhi: Where Love Serves Truth

A little bit of knowledge is a dangerous thing! True in many areas of life, but particularly true in Jyotish, where you will be astonished by the nuances your chart reveals. The celestial patterns that correspond to the unfolding of time are complex, my friends.

An Energy That Grabs You

Ever wonder what really is behind the decisions you make? Your gut feeling is strong, but where does it come from? Emotions and memories surface, and you sense their compelling force. You might feel they are coming from inside you, but that is only part of the picture. These forces that you experience have a Read More…

Full Moon in Rohini

Most of us feel some form of expansiveness with the Full Moon. But have you ever observed too how that Full Moon feeling differs from month to month? Every day the Moon moves into a different nakshatra (lunar constellation), and that particular star pattern alters the qualities of the Moon. Moon is impressionable, easily coloured Read More…
