Vedic Astrology & Counselling

"Astrology is a science in itself and contains an illuminating body of knowledge. It taught me many things and I am greatly indebted to it."
― Albert Einstein ― Theoretical Physicist


“Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom. Mastering others is strength; Mastering yourself is true power.”
— Lao Tzu — Chinese Taoist Philosopher

Socrates, the father of western philosophy taught ‘Know Thyself’ to guide others to the truth of a meaningful life. To be ignorant to our divine purpose and gifts is heartbreaking, but to explore who we really are and be aware of our higher purpose is a divine blessing.  
Vedic astrology counselling helps establish a life in equilibrium with universal dharma, and to connect with higher consciousness within us. It wholly supports a person to delve into, and make sense of significant life issues with the objective of healing wounds in the various areas of their life.  Most importantly, it also supports the individual to follow their dharma—the universal code of right living.

“[Men] should take their knowledge from the sun, the moon and the stars." ― E W Emerson ― Philosopher & Poet

Meet Vandana

Meet VandanaMeet Vandana
For more than 25 years Vandana has been working with others to help better their lives.   In the process she has also searched for her own soul’s purpose.   This seeking resulted in her developing astrology into a counselling tool.   Vandana was born in Australia where she obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and Media with Honours in 2001. In 2004 she completed a Postgraduate in Therapy and Counselling at Swinburne University, Melbourne. Since meeting her guru—Mata Amritanandamayi Devi, also known as ‘Amma’—her primary residence has been in India where she studies vedic philosophy and is subsequently embarking on a life-long study of yoga and vedic science.  Vandana studied vedic astrology for many years before becoming a vedic astrological counseller.  Finding that inspiration she says, “makes my heart sing”.

Vandana seeks to create an environment for her clients that allows them to share safely the challenges they face in their internal and external worlds.  She says, “I consider it a tremendous honour to read a person’s chart and to be present with them as together we navigate their personal history.  My goal in the therapeutic process is to support a person to seek greater knowledge of themselves in an atmosphere of integrity and compassion, and enable them to live life with more love, kindness, self-respect and self-awareness”.

About Vedic Astrology

About Vedic Astrology
Vedic astrology is the ancient Indian science of divination that connects our soul’s purpose to the physical and psychological experiences of daily life. Properly understood astrology encompasses everything. The sum total of all our human experiences from birth to death are shown in the astrological chart, including the intricacies and complexities of the relationships we undergo.

Astrology shows how the planets are shaping your personality, life circumstances, and highest actions.  We all hold within us the key to discovering our talents, and rather than simply being modestly satisfied with life, we can employ these inner resources to release the power of our soul’s blueprint, and achieve our divine dharmic birthright.

“Mother Earth is serving us. The sun, the moon and the stars all serve us. What can we do in return for their selfless service?” – Amma
