Astrology Map

Vedic Astrology from India is called Jyotisha. It literally means to see the light of celestial objects in the sky.

The foundation of  Jyotish is the notion that we are born with karma that we will work out in this life. Jyotish uses the sidereal zodiac which is different to the zodiac used by western astrologers. (Western astrologers use tropical zodiac)


 Jyotish will predict a blueprint or a guideline of a person's entire life from birth to end of their time with eery accuracy. Jyotish includes several nuanced sub-systems of interpretation and prediction that use constellations or Nakshatras.

Jyotish consultations can be used to consult the "stars" about starting a new job, new relationship, moving to a new home, or the best time to start a business. It can be used to find strategies to minimize Karma that is handed down to us. 

Jyotish is complex and uses Newtonian Physics, mathematical computations to calculate the charts. Hence, Jyotish astrologers have been highly qualified.  You can get a consultation with Pandit Atul Krishna Das, who has also written his own Jyotish software.

Consultations can be done ONLINE  via zoom.

"My name is Antonia and I am an Ayurvedic counselor in Austin. I went through Narayana Ayurveda & Yoga academy Program and the experience was life changing for me. It is a real and very completed Ayurveda course, intense because they cover a lot of deep materials like no other programs in the country. I have been studying Ayurveda for years and the knowledge of every doctor and teachers in the program is remarkable at Narayana. Before, during and after I was done with the studies, they still so helpful to me and to the rest of the students. Very accommodative to our needs. I am talking about everyone at Narayana, experts with integrity, they are compassionate and very professional team with lifetime experience in Ayurveda, living it, practicing, sharing and teaching. I will aways be thankful for what they taught me. An AMAZING course, highly recommended."
