How Vedic Astrology Can Help You
Would you like to learn about a deeper view of your chart that helps reveal the path of your soul? Vedic Astrology offers the rich, ancient Hindu wisdom underlying the zodiac we use today. The Nakshatras come from a technique using the path of the Moon that has mostly disappeared from modern Western astrology. They offer a different kind of “sign” that you can find nearly as easily as your sun sign, based on your birthday.
“Use astrology to discover if you and your partner are right for each other.” – Psychic Charrmayne ext. 5058
Similar to the dates when sun signs change, Nakshatra changes can be a day or so off from this list, so consider which Nakshatra suits you. Here is a brief glimpse at your Sun Nakshatra, one of 27 lasting approximately 13 days.

I’d like more information about Vedic Astrology
Do you currently have any vedic astrologists available for consultations?
I have been stumbling trughoh astrology book after astrology book, and while I have certainly been enjoying the journey, and picking up lots of wonderful information along the way I needed to pull it all together! Soul Purpose Astrology was the PERFECT book to get my head wrapped around the basic concepts of astrology and how to grasp the BIG PICTURE. I do believe the North and South Nodes are extremely important and the study of them can lift us to higher planes of learning and this book explains it succintly. Margaret Koolman pulls it all together in an easy to read and understand book. I thank her and thank Llewellyn for printing this valuable book. If you are a new or intermediate astrology student OR want a more intuitive way opf learning astrology this is THE book for you. I give it a HUGE endorsement.
Thank you LJ – Vedic Astrology is so rich, deep, spiritual and sexy in the way that t is so full of life. I love doing this forecast so much, along with the others, of course! The Nakshatras really bring in the stars and ancient technique that have been a bit “lost” by much of modern astrology, and addresses everyone’s feminine side.
Vedici astrology is way “on target” – great article.
Carol thanks so much for your interest! If enough readers are interested, hopefully we can make more information available.
Amy – thanks for your kind comments.
Would love to learn more about origins of Nakshatras, and the reasons that they sort of “faded out” from common usage in favor of the Zodiac signs. Exceptional article, thank you.
Thank you for this article/blog. Very interesting.
