Introduction to Vedic Astrology with Laura Lewellyn
Saturday, April 21
11:30am - 1:00pm
We most often use astrology as if it’s the weather forecast, reading our horoscopes to get a sense of what might be in store for us for the week, month, or even year. While this is perfectly legitimate, ancient Indians developed Jyotish, or Vedic astrology, as a tool to develop greater self-knowledge. Alongside its sister sciences of yoga and Ayurveda, Jyotish is a precise method to help us better understand our tendencies and live in the world in greater harmony.
In this brief introduction to Jyotish and your Vedic birth chart, we will explore:
· How Vedic Astrology is the perfect complement to a yoga and Ayurveda practice
· Differences between western and Vedic Astrology
· Significance of the Rising, Moon, and Sun signs (Hint: It’s different than western astrology!)
· Overview of the signs and houses in your Vedic birth chart
You will leave this workshop with a copy of your personal Vedic chart, and a worksheet to help you begin to use it for greater self-knowledge.
PLEASE NOTE: Laura will need to receive your birth day, date, year, time, and place no later than Wed. April 18 in order to receive your birth chart as part of the class. Please do your best to get your accurate birth time, but if you do not know it or are unable to get it to Laura by Wed. April 18, you are still invited to attend!
