Vedic Astrology Reading

private, personalized, live, online,
professional astrology reading

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 be free of the powerful grip of your compulsions, anxieties, and rumination (and any related destructive behaviours). This type of Vedic astrology reading is not predictive; it is, rather, psychological-spiritual or “psycho-spiritual”.

We inherit and develop a range of habits that help us avoid the people/situations that produce our difficult feelings and thoughts. These unwanted thoughts and painful 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 this, in the tangled emotions connected to the very things we avoid. Freed from these limitations, experiencing deeper connection (with yourself, with others, and with life itself) is simply not optional. Opening to life—opening the heart, unconditionally—means not feeling compelled to avoid anything ever again.


In your comprehensive, 2-hour psychospiritual Vedic 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 psychospiritual Vedic natal chart reading interprets your individual horoscope using principles of ancient Indian spiritual traditions intended to help you establish more freedom from your destructive 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 and understood. In this process, you gain the clarity that will allow for greater self-connection, self-awareness, self-acceptance, self-compassion, self-love. Learn more about the principles of a psycho-spiritual approach to Vedic astrology. (Vedic astrology is also known as Hindu or Indian astrology or, traditionally, “jyotiṣa” or simply, “jyotish”/“jyotisha”.)

Although this is a professional birth chart reading with a full-time professional astrologer, this is not a predictive astrological reading; Balrāj does not offer predictive astrological readings of any kind (including readings of the year ahead, called “solar return”). To see if you would benefit from a reading of your Vedic astrology 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

  • health, medical

  • children, fertility

  • relationships, love, marriage

  • spirituality, inner life

  • identity, values

  • productivity, achievement

  • home, family life

  • social life, friendship


Classical eastern spiritual traditions 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 psychospiritual 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, and insecurity).


Although your personalized reading is primarily about clarity, Balrāj makes a few pragmatic remedial suggestions, free of astrological/metaphysical jargon. You will 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. Your personal birth chart reading does not include conversational hypnosis. (Conversational hypnosis is offered as part of our one-on-one Clarity & Calm Intensive.)


You can schedule your astrology reading online using the link below.


BIRTH TIME REQUIREMENT: generally speaking, 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 feel free to contact us before scheduling your astrology chart reading. Your birth date and location are, of course, required.

Clarity in Action:
Doing the Work of Changing 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 our 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 requires personalized and ongoing support. 


Classical 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, we always remain open to miracles. If a miracle occurs, we welcome it with open arms. If not, we’re still much better off because we already started the process of changing ourselves and our lives. But 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 his one-on-one Clarity & Calm Intensive helping people transform feelings of overwhelm into profound clarity and deep inner calm so they can live a more grounded, spiritual, and fulfilling life. This program consists of four sessions, each 2+ hours long:

  1. A Psychospiritual Birth Chart Reading. Your natal chart will be discussed over the course of two or more sessions from the perspective Vedic astrology (jyotisha).

  2. Conversational Hypnosis. Hypnosis addresses obstacles at the level of the unconscious mind and is the most important tool for producing actual change in behaviour. Sessions are often unpredictable and produce dramatic breakthroughs.

  3. Psycho-Spiritual Coaching. Personalized practices specially selected for (depending on your birth chart) to help cultivate a deeper capacity for connection, mental peace, and a fulfilling life.

  4. 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. To see if this program is a fit for you, schedule a call with Balrāj or learn more on our site’s homepage.
