Vedic Astrology Reading:
Turn Self-Sabotage into Inner Clarity
private, personalized, live, online/virtual
professional birth chart reading + conversational hypnosis
We inherit and develop a range of habits that help us avoid the people/situations that produce our difficult feelings and thoughts. These intrusive thoughts and overwhelming emotions determine so much of our lives because we avoid them (and our tendency to continue to avoid them means that they will continue to prevent us from being free). Our fulfillment is often precisely in these tangled emotions connected to the very things we avoid. Without these limitations, experiencing deeper connection is simply not optional. Opening to life—opening the heart, unconditionally—means not feeling compelled to avoid anything ever again.
A professional birth chart reading with Balrāj functions like a kind of mirror: it shows elements of (the habitual, unconscious) you to (the conscious) you. By making your implicit, unconscious habits more explicit, you see how these habits have been determining your life. The resulting clarity creates the conditions for you to experience freedom from the powerful grip of your compulsions, anxieties, and rumination (and any related destructive and self-sabotaging behaviors). This type of Vedic astrology reading is not predictive; it is, rather, psychological-spiritual astrology or psycho-spiritual astrology. (Learn more about the principles of a psycho-spiritual approach to Vedic astrology. Vedic astrology is also known as Indian or Hindu astrology or, traditionally, “jyotiṣa” or simply, “jyotish”/“jyotisha”.)
In your comprehensive, 3-hour, psycho-spiritual virtual astrology reading, Balrāj identifies and addresses the most significant ways in which your habits are sabotaging your own efforts to find a sense of freedom from limitations so you can connect with your true self (i.e., the ‘version’ of your self less ensnared by your habitual anxieties/compulsions) and act on your deepest values. A Vedic psycho-spiritual birth chart reading interprets your individual horoscope using principles of ancient Indian spiritual paths/traditions intended to help you establish more freedom from your destructive and self-sabotaging habits so you can experience deeper connection with yourself, with others, and with life itself.
This is a personalized horoscope reading, so it is unique to you and helps you establish a more meaningful connection to your past and to your current situation, and helps you feel deeply seen, heard, and understood. In this process, you gain the clarity that will allow for greater spiritual self awareness, self acceptance, self compassion, self connection, and even self love.
This is a professional astrology reading with a full-time professional astrologer, but this is not a predictive astrological reading; Balrāj does not offer predictive astrological readings of any kind (including “solar return” readings for the year ahead or any kind of generic horoscope predictions based on zodiac sign—sun sign, moon sign, rising sign—new/full moon, solar and lunar eclipses, etc.). To see if you would benefit from a Vedic psycho-spiritual reading of your astrology birth chart, take a look at who we work with.
While one/more of the following areas of concern may very much appear to be the ‘cause’ of your most serious concerns, you may be surprised to know that that there are likely more efficient means to find relief (and these means may have nothing to do with this ‘cause’ itself):
career, vocation, business
relationships, love, marriage
spirituality, inner life
home, family life
social life, friendship
Classical eastern spiritual traditions (including yoga) generally weren’t concerned with solving the ego’s problems. Instead, these traditions were concerned with freeing awareness from the limitations imposed by the ego’s desire for permanent security. Freed from these limitations, one has no choice but to engage more fully in/with life. Similarly, the purpose of a psycho-spiritual Vedic astrology consultation is not to solve your personal problems but to give you the clarity to open your heart, allowing you to meet with whatever arises in your life (thoughts/emotions/situations) and not feel compelled to avoid anything ever again. Deepening your connection with yourself allows you to connect with (and pursue) the things that make your life most meaningful and full (without the fear, doubt, insecurity, and self-sabotage).
Although your personalized reading is primarily about clarity, Balrāj provides a short session in conversational hypnosis to begin the process of creating actual change in your life. This goes far beyond traditional recommendations (mantra, gemstones, etc.) and conventional advice (meditate/exercise/read more, etc.).
You will also receive suggestions (which may or may not include spiritual practices) that are unique to you and meant to be integrated and utilized in a direct and concrete way. No rituals, no amulets, no magic; awareness and courage are enough.
You can schedule your virtual astrology reading online using the link below.
BIRTH TIME REQUIREMENT: generally speaking, the moment of your birth is a requirement for birth chart readings; a birth time accurate within 1-2 minutes is preferred, though insightful readings are possible if your birth time is accurate within 5-10 minutes (though this is not always true). If you are not sure if your time of your birth is accurate enough, please contact us before scheduling your astrology chart reading. Your birth date and location are, of course, required.
Clarity in Action:
How to Change Your Life
The work of changing your life is often simple, but rarely easy.
A comprehensive, live astrology consultation provides useful clarity, but itself will do little to change your circumstances unless accompanied by consistent action; a simple intellectual understanding of your deeper and unconscious habits is rarely enough to affect your lived experience. This is why people often feel great (and motivated) immediately after astrology readings but experience little actual change in their lives. Doing the work of becoming un-stuck and addressing self-sabotaging behavior often requires personalized support and direct work with the deep (or “subconscious”) habitual self.
Classical eastern spiritual traditions prescribed practices precisely because theory wasn’t enough. Without practice—without implementation—change is near impossible. We can wait for change to occur spontaneously, or we can begin the process re-habituation using courage and awareness. Of course, while we always remain open to miracles, we don’t rely on them. If all we do is wait for a miracle, we run the risk of spending years feeling like we’re not any happier or have simply been wasting time. (Read Balrāj’s reflections on astrological remedies.)
For this reason, Balrāj is focusing his efforts on helping people transform self-sabotage and feelings of overwhelm into profound clarity and deep inner calm so they can feel more grounded, empowered, and connected with themselves. This program consists of six sessions, each 2+ hours long:
A Psycho-Spiritual Birth Chart Reading. Your natal chart will be discussed over the course of two or more sessions using a Vedic, psycho-spiritual approach to astrology (jyotisha).
Conversational Hypnosis. This form of hypnosis addresses obstacles at the level of the unconscious mind and is the most important tool for facilitate actual change in behaviour. Sessions are often unpredictable and produce dramatic breakthroughs. This is not traditional hypnosis; you will not be made to “relax” into a “trance” and read a pre-written script of suggestions. This is 100% unique to you and your subconscious.
Anxiety & Self-Awareness Coaching. As a coach and spiritual advisor/teacher, Balrāj uses your full birth chart to provide personalized practices specially selected to help cultivate deeper inner clarity, mental clarity, inner calm, and a fulfilling life. This includes meditation training for deep focus and self awareness, and breathwork training for deep rejuvenation and resilience.
Unlimited Support. Directly from Balrāj.
Working together with Balrāj, one-on-one, will provide the specific guidance and support required to cultivate a peaceful heart. The process of working with Balrāj also means that you will be held accountable as you begin to release old, destructive habits.
