Preparing for a Reading

Updated: Feb 14, 2021

There are a few things that I share with my clients at the start of every session. This is generic information, that applies to all charts and sets the tone for the reading to follow. I decided to make a video of it, so you can watch it prior to our meeting, and we can save that time from our actual session. This is around 12-min long - I hope you will make the time for it and reflect on what I share

If my approach to Vedic Astrology resonated with you, then read on.

I'm of the view that an astrology session should be approached in its own right. It should not be taken lightly, and must certainly not be treated as an entertainment activity. My sessions usually lasts 45-60 minutes each, and can take place in person (if you are in Auroville, India) or online (over Skype or Zoom). I have found that it usually takes 2-3 sessions to get a good understanding of a chart.


On the day of the session, find some quiet time to gather yourself, and to be present for the reading. You may also choose to reflect on any questions you have, so I can try and meet your expectations. Find a space where you wont be disturbed, and make sure to put your cell phone on silent mode, so there are no distractions. During the session, you can take notes, and/or record the session, so you can revisit it at a later time. After the session, I recommend that you 'sit' with what came up during the session, and consider how you will implement what we spoke about in your day-to-day life. If you have booked more than one session, then you can start implementing the tips from the reading, and I can address any questions you have in the next session. Even though each reading will be for an hour only, please plan 90 minutes in total... 15 minutes before the session to gather yourself, and 15 minutes after the session for a reflection.

Make a note of the session date and time so you don't forget, and reconfirm it with me a day or two ahead of time. If you cannot attend for any reason, please inform me at least 2 days before, so I can offer that time slot to another client. Note that I am also a certified life coach, and I offer coaching sessions to help my clients integrate the learnings from Astrology in their everyday lives. My coaching website is
