Astrology: the study of the movements and relative positions of celestial bodies interpreted as having an influence on human affairs and the natural world.
“In Hindu Astrology the word, Yoga, that has been derived from the sanskrit root, Yuj, meaning to join properly, to control judicially or to integrate, has been used to indicate the Soli-Lunar distances, and the planetary situations, associations and combinations. Yogas are formed when one planet, sign or house is related to another of the same kind or different kind by way of placement, aspect or conjunction. It is the active consideration of planetary yogas and the active consideration of the planetary dashas, directional effects, which are the two most important factors that distinguish hindu astrology from Western Astrology and lend support to the indigenous origin of the former system.” [wikipedia]
Yoga: is the science of self awareness. Union of the mind, body, & soul.
Ayurveda: Yoga’s sister science. The science of life that integrates self healing practices by using the natural wisdom of the body & nature.
Yoga and Ayurveda allow us to view ourselves and the world in a more connected and wholesome way. They both help us sustain good health and live consciously with awareness. Yoga and Ayurveda are complimentary systems that have been used for years in India, and now across the world. They allow us to connect better to ourselves and find that ultimate union of consciousness by using our body and innate inner wisdom. The application of these practices allow us to transcend suffering and karmas and help us self heal and live more mindfully. Yoga goes beyond the pose and asana, and is a powerful spiritual discipline that can transform our mind, body, and spirits. Ayurveda and Yoga help us achieve well being and find balance with proper diet, and lifestyle.
The cosmos and stars are dynamic always changing energies that affect how we, as humans, function on Earth. We all have an innate inner pull towards the moon, and everyone is affected by the moon in some degree. How you personally feel the moon and affects of the planets depend on how sensitive you are and the positions of the stars when you were born. In general, the macrocosm of the cosmos can help ‘prep’ us and help us understand how we are functioning and why, when we learn to understand them. The moon always affects our psyche and emotional energy. Women often feel deeper because of their feminine qualities. It is has been proven that full moons so cause more commotion and chaos in the world, even in emergencies rooms. Full moons typically are contrasting energies that cause opposition between two major energies, which can cause our psyche to get a bit unstable. Around full moons you will notice people escaping with alcohol, food, sugar, etc, because they are allowing the planetary energy to cause them to react and get about ‘crazy’ or out of balance.
Yoga, Ayurveda, and Astrology and studying your unique energy can help you understand how you function and ‘why’ you may act out at certain times or feel a bit more emotional. These natural sciences help us connect in a more holistic manner and ultimately teach us how to empower ourselves to live naturally well. As Yogis, the goal is to not allow outside forces to ‘rule’ us, but to rule ourselves and our sensitive by being aware of what may trigger us and knowing how to truly do what is best for us, and our own unique bodies and selves.
