Types of Readings

Birth Chart Reading - 1 1/2 hours: $250 or €200
This reading gives you a comprehensive interpretation of your Vedic natal chart. You will learn the unique planetary influences that created your foundational character. The reading includes a psychological profile and an explanation of your path and purpose in life. It can cover a whole range of life issues, such as career, relationships, family, finances, spiritual path and health. It can help you understand and embrace your past as well as prepare mindfully for the future. It includes an analysis of the planetary transits currently affecting your life as well as an explanation of the cycle of life (mahadasa) you are currently running. You receive a copy of your Vedic chart and an Mp3 recording of your session. All new clients must begin with this reading, as it sets the ground for all future readings.


Follow-up Reading - 1 hour: $180 or €145
As the information you receive in your natal reading settles deeper, new questions can surface. Or new challenges can arise in your life, creating uncertainty or confusion about the path ahead. A fresh reading can illuminate the issues you are facing. It can help you deal with a crisis, understand the dynamics of the moment, and see when the energy will shift. It can help you choose right action for the highest expression of your dharma. 


Muhurta - 1 hour: $180 or €145
Timing is all! Muhurta is the branch of Jyotish that helps you time important events for a more auspicious outcome. Though no muhurta is totally perfect, you can avoid many problems by steering clear of inauspicious muhurtas. And you can optimize your results by choosing a time when the planetary energy is most conducive to whatever it is you are planning. Muhurta is used for important events like marriage, surgery, starting a business, or anything else significant. In this reading, we discuss your event and look at the best days and times for its enactment, according to the transits, your particular birth chart, and the cycles of life you are running.  This reading lasts one hour.


Specific Question Reading: $110 or €90
If after your natal reading, you have a specific question, this is the reading for you. In this short consultation, you will receive clarification about anything that has come up for you. This reading is conducted by telephone or Skype only. 


Yearly Follow-up Reading - 1 hour: $180 or €145
This reading builds upon your birth chart reading. It gives you a detailed analysis of the current year, including the mahadasa and sub-cycles you are running as well as an interpretation of the current planetary transits in the context of your personal chart. A yearly follow-up reading is highly recommended for all clients. It will help you keep a pulse on the shifting planetary energies and use that understanding to better navigate yourself through the upcoming year. 


Four Supplementary Coaching Sessions: $665 or €540
These four one-hour coaching sessions use the knowledge gained from your natal chart reading to go beyond it. Tailored according to your needs, they draw upon a variety of techniques to help you integrate everything on a deep soul level. You learn how to make positive change in your life in order to realise your highest potential. Marianne has training and experience in Buddhist psychotherapy, Shamanic practices, Spiritual Counselling, and Yoga. All these modalities contribute to her coaching style, which is all about empowering you with practical skills to enhance your life, both materially and spiritually.


How to Book a Consultation:

To book a reading, please send an email with your birth details. This is what  is necessary:
Birth date: Day, month and year
Birth time: This should be as exact as possible; down to the precise minute is preferable. If that is not possible, please indicate how approximate the time is and state the source of this time (hospital records, birth certificate, mother's memory, etc.) An inaccurate birth time can be rectified, but that takes extra work.
Birthplace: City or town, Country
Questions or issues: Please submit any questions or specific issues you would like the reading to address. You can list these as bullet points.

Please state in your email what availability you have and and you will receive an appointment time and details for payment. Once you have accepted an appointment time, you must send in the fee. No work on your chart can begin until payment is received.

Terms and Conditions:

1. All consultations must be paid in full beforehand. Much preparation goes into your reading, so please send in your fee as soon as your consultation is booked.

2. If you need to change your appointment time, you must give at least 24 hours notice to be rescheduled for no additional charge. If you cancel within 24 hours of your appointment, you must pay the full fee as a cancellation charge.

3. After the reading, you will receive an Mp3 recording of your session, so you do not need to take notes. It is important to remain focused and receptive during the reading. Notes can distract. 

4. Please prepare for your session with any specific questions or issues clearly in mind. It is also a good idea to leave plenty of time after the session for you to assimilate the experience. Jyotish is spiritual practice, so come to your session with a clear mind and open heart.

5. Remember an astrological reading reveals potential and trends. Astrology may be perfect, but interpretations are as susceptible to human error as anything else. The future remains open to divine grace. A reading does not predict the future; it helps you modify or enhance possibilities with conscious awareness.

The blue light of morning holds a promise. The ancient rishis knew that. But don’t just believe it, investigate for yourself. It is happening for me right now in a most serendipitous way.
