Beyond Astrological Personality Analysis:
An In-Depth Vedic Astrology Birth Chart Reading for Those Who Want Results (Without the Astrology Jargon)
avoiding our difficult thoughts and painful emotions (and avoiding the people/situations that produce these difficult thoughts and emotions). Often, we know exactly what to do, but we simply don’t want to do it. We may convince ourselves that we don't actually know what to do, or we might seek ways of bypassing the required actions, instead hoping that things will just work themselves out. In short, our difficult thoughts and emotions are determining so much of our lives precisely because we avoid them.We don’t often appreciate how many of our problems are a result of us
A professional birth chart (or natal chart) reading with Balrāj is a direct discussion of your problems, unencumbered by unnecessary astrological jargon (e.g., planets, zodiac signs, etc.). The intent of this reading is provide more clarity, more self-connection, and more empowerment. It is intended to make your implicit habits more explicit so you can take the few actions that will produce the most results. We discuss how your habits are sabotaging your efforts to experience progress in some area of your life. Less trapped by your own habits of avoidance, you will be better able to open yourself up to opportunities, resources, and deeper connection. This process of opening up means not feeling compelled to avoid anything ever again. This is how we use your horoscope. This is how we use astrology.
Of course, we’re not seeking results for the sake of results, but we are seeking meaningful results; that is, results aligned with some vision of the future. There’s a difference between a “personal vision” and having a fulfilling and meaningful personal vision. A fulfilling personal vision is more aligned with our deepest values/inspiration/strengths and more dedicated to contribution. This type of vision filters and focuses our attention and calls us beyond our personal compulsions, anxieties and rumination (i.e., beyond our self-obsession) towards more connection, more authenticity, and more freedom. Your vision need not be perfect; it just needs to guide and encourage you in your right direction—and each step in that direction will reveal new horizons. But this type of vision is generally inaccessible to someone in panic mode, who is more focused on putting out fires that have little/no relevance to their vision (and to who they want to become). These people tend to rely on astrology (including astrology remedies) to heal their lives for them rather than using the horoscope as a tool for the cultivation of their own self-awareness and freedom.
The “Spiritual” Meanings of Planets in Signs:
A Personalized, Vedic Astrology Reading of Your Birth Chart based on Yogic Principles
This type of Vedic astrology reading is not predictive; Balrāj does not interpret the planets and signs for the sake of forecasting events. In fact, 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 planets or zodiac signs—sun sign, moon sign, rising sign—new/full moon, solar and lunar eclipses, etc.).
This Vedic astrology is more of a psychological reading guided by the spiritual principles of yoga. This way of interpreting your individual horoscope employs principles of classical 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. (Vedic Astrology is also known as Indian or Hindu astrology or, traditionally, “jyotiṣa” or simply, “jyotish”/“jyotisha”.)
In your comprehensive, 2-hour, personalized horoscope reading, we will address your questions about the area of life you feel is the source of your troubles, and we will explore how you might adapt your approach in order to liberate your own resources (so you may transform your situation). While astrology can certainly have healing qualities, you must ultimately take action. This change in action might even stem from coming to the realization that your existing problem has nothing to do with your vision and can be let go. Expecting a birth chart reading (or a gemstone or something similar) to heal your life might be re-producing the problem of avoidance. But deepening your self-connection allows you to filter and focus your attention on the things that make your life path most meaningful, without the fear and insecurities. In this way, you (and your attention and energy) are not consumed by a need for those things that you think will make you feel complete. (This principle is also emphasized in our compatibility readings.)
