yea i'm loving ayurveda - honestly they know all of my chronic problems! I spoke with a woman at East West Bookstore in Mountain View, CA - her name is Madhavi Rathod (i hope i didn't write this already) but she did my chart and told me i am Vata - i had already read my charts on free jyotish sites - but she really helped me interpret it more - now i have some free software and i can see the planets in a bhava chalit chart and i just love it! they got so many things about my personality!
for example my moon is 3.5 degrees away from saturn and in my 4th house in the Bhava Chalit chart - so even though most of teh sites said for me not to use pearl since my ascendent is on the cusp (2 minute debate) between Taurus or Gemini, since she noticed this about my moon she said ok pearl remedy - well she also did that since i was born a day after teh full moon - but so many other awesome details about reading this chart
i mean i thought i had bad circulation in one of my legs, now i know it is the beginning of sciatica (common vata problem) and i have specific yoga poses for vata that help so much with my leg! even my chronic cough was from being too dry - not from any problem with phlegm like i thought ! i'm just amazed- and so happy- because modern medicine has only made me worse, yet ayurveda is healing everyhitng and i've only been doing this for about 3 months -
even my chronic fatigue is leaving - i'm so happy about finding this - i have seen books on ayurveda at the bookstore before but i never dove into it - i also never realized that astrology was sort of handed over to india from egypt and greece during the hellenic age - yet india has preserved it better than anyone else in the world - so amazing to have a system like this -
i just started learning how to read charts a couple months ago - i used to just listen to what the sites interpreted my chart as - but i have been curiuos about jyotish for 10 years, and when i went to hear Madhavi talk - and mix it with ayurveda - i just thought eureka! this is totally my thing haha - doesn't feel so "airy fairy" anymore
for anyone who thinks the "planets" or celestial bodies dont effect them - remember what percentage of water is in your body, and then look what just the moon does to the ocean and the tides lol! so this really is scientific
