As a start to our Vedic Astrology section of this website. We are re-posting an article Mikki wrote last Sept on our Vedic Astrologer Eve James for Seek Retreat , a Los Angeles based web-guide to yoga retreats. "We live in a time of transformation, finding ourselves searching for new paths to peace and happiness. Tradition, spirituality and mysticism, old and new, can help lead us on that path. I was introduced to Vedic Astrology through a serendipitous introduction to Eve James, a wonderful and extremely insightful Vedic astrologer who gave me my first reading.
To keep things simple, Vedic astrology (also known as Jyotish in Sanskrit) is your karmic blueprint, based on the planetary system consisting of 27 lunar signs, each containing information from our birth chart that relates to certain time periods in our lives called Daśhā-s. On our journey, we collect what’s known as Sanskaras or impressions (i.e. lessons) from our previous life. These Sanskaras determine the situations that we’re presented in our current life, and will influence the scope of our future actions.
After meeting Eve, I became more fascinated with the accuracy of my reading. Finding that our conversation was continuously popping up in the back of my mind as the summer went on, I decided to dig deeper and interview her".
