How Vedic Astrology Can Fit Into Modern Life

About The System I Use To Read Your Horoscope

Everything in the horoscope is predestined and will come to pass, but anything in the horoscope can be changed.

This is a tremendous paradox. So which is it?  Pre-destiny or free will?  The answer is this: if you do not know your horoscope, if you do not know how the planets are operating in your chart, if you do not know when they are operating in your chart, and if you do not know what to do to fix your chart…  then, yes, you will meet with the destiny in your chart.

In this case, chances are you will have the same problems over and over again in life. This is why people have multiple marriages, multiple career problems, multiple financial problems, multiple health problems, etc.  

By knowing the true strength and weaknesses of the planets, we can understand where the obstructions have been coming from and then we can start to make adjustments to improve our lives. 

Using Vedic Astrology we can manage the cycles of life and shed some insights on why things happen the way they happen. 

One thing I love about doing consultations for people going through rough times is that I can offer light at the end of the tunnel and real preventative measures that you can start right now to improve the quality of your life. If you know where the draft is coming from, you can fix the draft; if you know which tires on your bus of life are low on air, you can put air back in those tires — and then you can roll down the highway of life more smoothly.  Fix your chart — fix your life. Then there is an improvement in your mental and physical health, relationships with others, career and income, and a certain ease and peace of mind.

What do you focus on during a reading?

What I’m trying to accomplish with a reading is: First, I, share with you how the planets are truly operating in your life. I do not give sugar-coated false hope. I assume people want the truth about their horoscopes. There are 12 houses in a chart and there are 9 planets. Each of these houses represent different areas of life, longevity, health, wealth, home life, children, marriage, career, friendships, etc. Based on the position of the planets in the horoscope we can see what areas of life need more support. 

Nobody has a perfect chart. We all have some weakness, some affliction, some debilitation, or some bad placement of planets. This is why we have health and financial issues, obstacles, delays, disappointments, setbacks, accidents, losses, and separations. So we find these planets and we prescribe the twofold planetary remedies to help. Everybody can strengthen their favorable planets (through gemstone and color therapy), and propitiate (honor) the planets causing adverse effects (through charities and chants).

For example, if Saturn is causing adverse effects in your chart you can help the poor and the needy on Saturdays, or give donations to a charity on Saturday; you can also avoid wearing dark blue or black or using those colors in your home and work space.

On the other hand, if Saturn is a benefic planet in your chart, you can wear a dark blue sapphire gemstone and have dark blue and black colors around you, such as wearing blue clothing and sunglasses, and having blue colors in you home and workplace, for walls, sheets, paintings, bedspreads, etc. These remedies are fun, simple, effective, and make you feel good!

Lastly, we’re going to cover the timing of events. Life does not happen all at once even though sometimes it feels that way. Life happens according to the hands on the clock and we have that clock. It’s called the Vimshottari Dasha Sequence.  We can see the past, the present, and future general trends in your life. This allows us to know when we have some periods of smooth sailing, and when we have some periods when we should slow down and not take risks or chances in order to manage adverse effects. 

How Can Astrology Be Used To Live A More Fulfilling Life?

No matter how healthy, wealthy, good looking, or educated a person may be sooner or later trouble comes to everyone. A Vedic Astrologer can shed light on these trouble areas and then offer twofold planetary remedies to:

  • Help strengthen your favorable planets
  • Manage the planets causing adverse effects.

With Vedic Astrology we have the knowledge to help people come out of their difficulties.

How The Planets Play An Important Role In Our Lives

Everything in a horoscope is predestined and will come to pass. Yet, anything in a horoscope can be change! So which is it? Pre-destiny or free will? The answer is this:
If you are not aware of

  • How the planets are operating in your life
  • When the planets are operating in your life
  • What you can do to improve the quality of your life

Then yes, you will meet with the destiny in your chart. But, if you know these three things, then you can change your destiny. 

The Systems’ Approach to Interpreting Horoscopes, as developed by Professor V.K. Choudhry of Gurgaon, India, is based on classical Jyotish principles and tested under the empirical studies of more than 100,000 charts over a 20-year period.

Jyotish translates to the divine science of light. When we shed light on the problems in our horoscope the darkness disappears. With the knowledge of this science of divine light we can fix our charts and fix our lives.

What is Vedic (vey-dik) astrology and how is it different from Western astrology?​

The word Vedic Astrology in India is known as Jyotisha. Jyotisha means the Divine Science of light on time and karma. So when we do a Vedic Astrology reading we shed light on the person’s horoscope. Vedic astrology is said to be more than 5,000 years old. It was originally written in Sanskrit, the mother of all languages. It predates Chinese, Egyptian, Greek, and Western astrology.  

It is based on the sidereal zodiac which takes into consideration the wobble of the Earth’s axis or what is known as “precession of the equinox”, unlike the Tropical Zodiac which is used by Western Astrologers and is based on a fixed position of the planets more than 2,000 years ago. So yes, this means the horoscope you’ve been reading in the newspapers and magazines will be different from what I would tell you, which may blow your mind a little but trust me, this is the real deal. 

The rising sign or your ascendant used by Vedic Astrologers is much more specific to you. It is based on the exact time, place (longitude and latitude), and date of your birth. So If you were to ask an ASTRONOMER at the time of your birth what sign was ascending they would agree with the Vedic astrologer rather than the Western astrologer.

In addition to charts for the individual, can you also do charts for marriages, corporations, partnerships, etc?

Yes. At any given point in time, there is a chart for that moment. For example, when someone marries, or starts a new company, or is sworn in as president of the United States, there is a chart for that exact moment, as though a new baby is being born.

This is why it is important to consult with an astrologer for the best time to start any activity – such as getting married, buying a house, starting a new business – to ensure maximum positive results. In this way, the marriage will last, the investment pays off, and the business is a success.

You can also see when this has not been done. For example, we can look at the charts where there has been a divorce, investment loss, business bankruptcy, etc., and clearly see the event was started at a bad time.

We can also look at charts for the moment of earthquakes, plane crashes, wars, etc., and these calamities can be easily seen. 

Another good use of astrology is suitability readings to let people know if prospective spouses, partners, employees, etc., have good charts to support these endeavors, or if they need remedial measures for better results in life.

What do you say to those who do not believe in astrology, or to those who do not think astrology is really a science?

People turn to astrology after all else fails. No science on earth can reveal the mysteries of life. 

Personally, I have had very good results with this knowledge. The vast majority of my clients tell me the readings are accurate, relevant, and helpful. People know when you are speaking the truth. In my opinion, Vedic astrology is a divine science, and lets you see into the past, the present, and the future.

That being said not all astrology is the same and not all astrologers are capable or have integrity. They are taking too much information from different books or other astrologers without a system or just in it for money. This often times leads to confusion, and contradictions and can give the field of astrology a bad name! I’ve had friends who were told awful things in their readings such as you’re not worthy or love or you will die young…. These are the kinds of things astrologers should not be saying. You should feel positive and energized after a reading, not scared. 

Systems’ Approach to Vedic Astrology which is what I practice takes the guesswork, intuition, and contradictory principles out of the horoscope reading because it’s based on a scientific paradigm and provides accurate, relevant, practical and REPLICABLE readings.

How It Works

First, you will need to provide me with your exact time, place, and date of birth. Using this information I will create your personalized chart. It will look something like this. The initial part of your reading will include general information about your birth chart such as personality traits and natural tendencies and talents. It will also include weaknesses that may be causing trouble in your life and what you can do to fix these weaknesses. These are called planetary remedial measures and are simple, quick, and effective.


The second part of your reading will include more detailed information about where the planets are today and how these planets are operating or affecting your life. This is when we discuss where your focus should be right now in order to achieve the greatest results! This is called the transit chart and looks something like this


The third part of your reading will include information about the timing of events. This information is seen through looking at the current main period and sub period as well as future main periods and sub periods. This is known as the Vimshottari Dasha sequence and is like the crystal ball of Vedic Astrology! It looks something like this:
