Astrological readings are now being broken down into two main types, healing/psychological or predictive. This keeps it as simple and straightforward as possible. If neither of these options suits you, scroll down below to see the rest.


If you are not happy with yourself and your situation in life, this is the reading to get. If you would like to understand yourself better and know why certain patterns keep coming up, this is the reading to get. Or if you want to get help with relationships and see into your own psyche and how to heal and work with your karma, this is the type of reading to get.

This reading gives you an understanding of who you are and the story of your life. You get to see what the chart says about the wounds you came into this life with and what type of habits they create. In doing so you can more clearly see and accept yourself as you are, which is when the real healing begins. As a result, this type reading is very healing by its nature. What kind of karmic picture you are working with are covered in detail in this reading. Get this reading if you want to understand yourself psychologically, or to know anything about yourself and your life other than predictions. This reading focuses mainly on reading the story of your life in such a way that it cultivates understanding, healing, and Self-knowledge.

In these readings I use mostly Vedic Astrology techniques but also bring in tools and elements of Yogic philosophy, Human Design, Siang Mien (the chinese system of face reading), Adlerian psychology, Jungian psychology, Naturopathy, Homeopathy, and the work of Joseph Campbell.

$199 USD/hour


This is the reading to get if you would like to have forecasts and predictions for any and all kinds of things. We can and likely will still address themes that are covered in the Life Reading while also going into specific detailed predictions about them. (For example, if I said you may be a musician and make an album in the Life Reading, in this reading I could go into predicting when that would actually happen and other details about it. I am a vedic astrologer that likes to predict using details and you can learn more about me and see some examples of what I am talking about in this video.)

As I touch on in the video, much of the predictive techniques I like to use come straight from Jaimini Upadesa Sutras, Brihat Parashara Hora Shastra, Phala Deepika, and other Jyotish classics.

The fee is higher for this reading as it takes more time and mental energy to examine the chart at such an in-depth level, using a variety of techniques in a predictive manner. The fee will also vary based on the predictions you are requesting. To get this reading just explain to me in an email what you would like to have a prediction on. Based on that and examining your chart for a few minutes I will come up with a fee somewhere in this price range and email you back a quote and go from there.

$225 – 500 USD/hour (Depending on the predictions requested)


This is a predictive reading that only focuses on the next year ahead, giving details on the themes of the year ahead. By only focusing on one year at a time, it can get much deeper and a lot more detailed and specific. Many clients like to have one reading every year just to get an idea of the themes of that year and what obstacles they may face, and what rewards or opportunities might be coming up.

One thing that is great with Varshaphala is you can know a bit more about your money, health, relationships, family life, and how all the various areas of life might be over the course of the year. It is also nice to hear from an objective party just what may be the most auspicious things to focus on for that year, and what things to leave alone. 

In this reading I use mainly Varshaphala, the ancient solar return tradition of the Tajika jyotish tradition. Many of these techniques I have used since 2012 with great results. Here is a video to give you more of an idea of what a solar return chart is, though it is not necessary to watch this to benefit from the reading.

Fee: $229USD/hr


For serious clients, they will want to go with the royal level forecast. In this reading I not only read the varshaphala chart, but I also combine all my best predictive techniques to find the confluence of what they are all saying and deliver the most accurate forecasts and predictions I can. One is essentially hiring me to work on the chart longer beforehand, and to have the time to use all the techniques I like to use. 

For this reading, I will use the solar return techniques of tajika jyotisha tradition as I do in the initial one as a foundation. I also use the best nakshatra dasha techniques with Vimshottari Dasha that I have found to see what that is saying. Then I also layer in a number of Rashi dashas from the Jaimini Upadesa sutras to see what they are pointing to. I also study the transits over the course of the year and give a breakdown of the whole year.

I basically just use every technique I know and layer them all together. Examining all of these and seeing the confluence of indications is what makes for the most reliable predictions in my experience. But it takes time, so it costs a bit more.

Fee: $299 USD/hr

Those are the four main options I offer, but if neither of those are what you are looking for, check out these other alternatives below:

Ask One Single Question (Prashna)

This is the best choice if you have one main question. This can be seen just like going to an oracle in the old days. You can ask one single question about pretty much anything, but please be as detailed as possible and it should only be something you strongly desire to know about. Just like going to an oracle in the old days, you have to follow a certain protocol. There are rules to how this has to work. I wish I did not have to give all these rules but otherwise it will not work:

  1. Most yes or no questions will work, so its good to stick to that if you can. 
  2. Do not use the word “or” in the question. A good way to phrase it can be “What would be the result if I do X….?”  Or you can ask “Will this event occur?”.
  3. Sometimes it is best to think about the question for a 24 hour period before sending the email, but that is not necessary or possible in many cases.
  4. The question must be clear.
  5. An example of a simple and useful question to ask can be “Will I date this person?”, or “Where is my lost wallet?”. 
  6. The same question cannot be asked more than once in a 3 month period. 
  7. You also cannot ask more than one question. For example: If you ask “Will I get married and have my own family?”, that is two questions. It is a question of marriage and also of family. If you asked one or the other it would be okay, but not both.
  8. The more invested you are in the answer, the more accurate it will be. Email me as soon as the question is strong in your mind, and do not wait.
  9. I do not go into predicting when things will happen in this reading.  Predicting when things will occur is much more difficult and requires a lot more time and research (If that is desired, see the predictive reading option below).
  10. You have to pay for this reading before asking the question.
  11. Do not put the question in the subject title or first few sentences of the email. (See below)

These questions are answered by email. Sometimes it is just a paragraph worth of information, but I offer the “option B” below if you would like more details than just a paragraph can provide. All you have to do is make sure the question is sincere, send over the payment, and email the question. Put “Prashna” in the subject title and do not put the question in the subject title. THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PART: Put the question in the body of the message so that I cannot see it until I open the email. For example, your message can just start by saying, “Hi, my name is x. I am from such and such place. I have a prashna I would like to ask you.” And then ask the question. It has to be done this way. Prashna is a magical process. Its called “Devaprashna” in India, which means consulting the Gods, which I am just doing on your behalf. You must approach it with a degree of respect, and by following this protocol you show that respect. I cannot read the email until I am in a place to answer it, as I have to do the work on it right then in the moment. That is why you cannot put the question or even start to ask the question in the first few sentences as that will ruin it if I am not in a place to answer it right then, which is often the case. And because this work is non refundable on my end, I have to be paid first before working on it, so you must be sure to have paid for it first.

Please allow 1-7 business days for me to respond with the answer depending on my availability at the time.

Fee: $108 USD

PRASHNA OPTION B: For a higher fee I will gladly make a video answer to your question, rather than just a paragraph of writing. I understand some questions I am asked for prashnas require more than just one paragraph to properly answer. Choose this option if that is the case for your big question and I can elaborate on it more fully in a 20-30 minute video. 

Fee: $159 USD For 20-30 Minute Video Recorded Answer to Prashna


Character Analysis

This type of reading is a focus on reading your character. It will go into the strengths and weaknesses within yourself that are the result of past karmas, as well as how to improve upon them. The virtues and merits that you have brought with you from previous lifetimes will be covered. The more difficult issues to work on will also be explained, and a remedial measure such as a change of behavior, attitude adjustment, dietary changes, cutting out or adding in new activities, or more detailed actions will be recommended to help you understand and best improve upon your character and personality.  Often times one’s own personality characteristics can be the greatest factor to support or interfere with success in any endeavor.  Given as an emailed mp3 recording. 45 min.  $128 USD


Spiritual Growth Consultation

Choose this option if you are wanting to see what the horoscope says about where you are on your spiritual journey.  This can be helpful if you are not sure about a spiritual path, or want to know the paths and practices that fit well for your temperament.  Different philosophical concepts from various traditions may be introduced. If you are of any religious background, or none at all, the concepts can still be adapted to fit harmoniously. If you are on a yoga path, this is a great tool to gain more insight on this path. If you want to know your Ishta Devata or things like that, this is the reading for that.

Approximately 45 min.  $159 USD

For an hour long one on one session: $199 USD

Intuitive Reading

If one is just curious and wants to learn about themselves, but doesn’t have an urgent issue to be addressed, they can take this type of reading.  It is intuitive and free-form, so I just use whatever techniques I am drawn to use and read the chart spontaneously without focusing on a particular question.  I simply study and research the chart and just look at whatever “pops out” at me.  This makes it easier for me and so I can do it in a shorter amount of time. Often what is found and shared is exactly what the client feels they needed to hear for that point in their life anyway.  This type of reading can be a lot of fun for both parties. Two options are available:

Option A) A 45 minute mp3 recording is emailed to you. We do not have a one on one meeting with this option, but you are invited to share your feedback on the reading and I gladly clarify any questions about the reading via email.  $159 USD

To order this reading, email me at and request the 45-minute intuitive reading, option A. I’ll send a paypal invoice. I will also let you know the approximate wait time as well.

Option B) With this option, its the same but we have a one on one session. It is more of a conversational style reading done through zoom, and for 1 hour. Sometimes this way can get more detailed as I get immediate feedback from you in real time, and can make adjustments as I go. $179 USD/hr


Financial Astrology Reading

For one that mainly wants to focus on finances, investing, and what to do to make the most of their money, this is the reading to get. You can ask me anything related to finances in this reading. We can cover timing of when to buy and sell stocks, crytpocurrencies, properties, or investments. Also covered is what types of areas are the most lucrative to invest in overall, and what activities, fields, or endeavors are likely to get one ahead financially based on the past karmas shown in the chart.

$299 USD/1 hour

Royal Level Financial Reading 

Some might ask, what all is entailed in the 1 hour reading? That depends on the tier of service you request. For the high level investor, the Royal Level Financial Reading is the best route to take. This reading affords me the time to focus on the finer details of the chart, including the vargas, rashi dasas, varshaphala, and personal major upcoming transits.

This reading gives a highly detailed analysis of when to buy and sell certain assets for the individual. This can include properties, vehicles, collectibles, cryptocurrencies, stocks, and more. With this option we can look at the overall capacity and financial promise of the natal chart at a very comprehensive level. Then we can look at the timing of that promise and see also when the gains are likely to come. And then we can assess the quality of the planets giving the gains and thus see in what areas or fields of life they might come from. This reading can give insight into what potential a cryptocurrency has to grow or shrink over the next year, what specific coins will likely grow the most, and all sorts of other financial details, including the general tone of the markets for the year.

$600 USD – 1.5  hours of highly detailed predictions.

(It can go longer or shorter, the time frame is not as important in this reading as just covering all the material required. However long that takes is how long the reading will be)


Follow Up Reading

Revisit past issues or choose 3 new areas to look at.  Many clients find it helpful to have a follow-up session once a year, to re-evaluate how they are working with their karma or to dig a little deeper into their understanding of themselves.  Approximately 1 hr.  $149 USD


Muhurta Report (Timing of Events, aka Electional Astrology)

All important events in life are given a better chance of success if undertaken at an auspicious time.  Maybe you are planning to open up a restaurant, or to move to a new city, or get married… whatever it is, it will generate a more positive outcome if it is initiated at a favorable time.  Common things this type of astrology is used for:

  • Marriage
  • Starting a journey/travel plans
  • Starting a business
  • Fertility periods/best times to conceive
  • Beginning construction on a building or project
  • Beginning a writing project
  • Taking a medicine for the first time
  • Launching a website

These are just a few examples of how this type of astrology can be used.  It does not require an accurate time of birth.  To have this reading, email me and explain what the endeavor you plan to undertake is, as well as the 3-month window in which you would like to accomplish it.  A paypal invoice will be sent, and upon payment, I will begin researching this window of time.  Results will be emailed and an exact date will be given, as well as the next best dates to use so that you have a few options to work with.  $75 USD for 4 a month window (plus $15 for an extra month to research)


Career Shift or “breakthrough period” Consultation

This is a short reading that is ideal for someone who is wanting to make a change in their career or wants to know when they will have the best chance at a promotion or breakthrough in their work.  Keep in mind though, that not everyone is meant to have a career improvement, and this depends on how one has fulfilled their responsibilities in the past.  This is indicated in the horoscope. You will not be given advice on choosing a career but will be given the window of time when, if you have been working hard and sincerely, you will most likely be rewarded for your works by being given a new opportunity for a higher quality of work or career.  (Approximately 25-30 minutes, given as an mp3 recording, though it is possible to make exceptions and have a Skype session if it is warranted)  $89 USD

Ayurvedic Dosha (Constitution) Analysis –

Get out of a health funk by getting a breakdown of your constitution (Called Dosha, in Ayurveda) and insights on how to keep your health in balance through the seasons that are based on you and your actual body, not just generic information from an internet article.  Learn what types of therapies and practices out of all the generic advice out there is actually going to work for you and what will not work. Healing is not a one size fits all type of thing, and this is where Jyotish and Ayurveda come in. Get a grasp of the balance of the elements within yourself, learn about Vata, Pitta, and Kapha and how it relates to you, and what to do to make the most of your constitution.  A short 30-minute mp3 reading where your constitution is given along with lifestyle tips and routines that are best for your constitution.   30 min. $89 USD


Foundational Birth Chart Reading

For those who are getting there first horoscope reading, and want a general understanding of what kinds of karmic possibilities they are likely to experience within this life, or have already experienced in this life, this is a good choice. Its amazing how much more we can understand and come to peace with the various good and bad events in our lives when we hear them explained and extrapolated upon by an astrologer that does not even know the person.

You can pick 4 different areas of life to be researched and contemplated. It focuses only on those areas and reveals the issues that pertain to the strength or weakness of that part of life.

Examples: the health/disease potentials and constitution of the body , wealth and financial issues, Talents and skills one may possess or benefit from developing, family karmas, emotional nature, mental nature, relations with children, personality issues, the ideal lifestyles and daily routines for the individuals harmony, education, relationship potentials, longevity, marriage, achievements in the world, fulfillment of desires, spiritual growth. Any area of life can be understood more fully from studying the birth chart, so really there is no limit to the topics that could be explored.

A remedial measure will be advised to help you minimize or alter the negative karmic issues you are dealing with and strengthen the positive karmic qualities. Approximately 1.5 – 2 hours.  $225-299 (The Price is depending upon the issues chosen and the amount of time it takes, so I cannot say exactly until I know what you are asking.)

please inquire for fee:


Level 2 Birth Chart Reading

This is a more intense birth chart reading, that will consist of two sessions for two hours each.  You can select 9 areas of interest or less than 9 and I will go into each with great detail and depth.  It is important to remember that in ancient times astrology was mostly reserved for the royal families and those who were lucky enough to be able to afford to hire an astrologer/mathematician for weeks at a time.  The astrologers to the court or royal family would spend an entire lifetime on just the charts of the Royal family and would still be learning new things about them continuously.  If you have studied Jyotish yourself then you know how sophisticated it is and how much detail can be seen from the horoscope.  Each human life is very complicated and it is the same with the birth chart.  With that in mind, in this reading you are basically just paying me more so that I can take much more time to study each varga or divisional chart and dasa system that relates to your questions with much more attention.  This isn’t normally an option for an astrologer because they only have the time they have been paid for to work on the chart and therefore usually can’t afford to go much further than the Rasi chart.  Moreso, they rarely have time to look at any other dasa system other than the classic Vimshottari, but there are more than a dozen other dasas (timing systems) that are applicable and running at all times.  This is a more time-consuming process, but provides greater accuracy and detail to the client. You must have an accurate time of birth for this reading and if not you may want to see the birth time rectification options given below.  2 session for approximately 1.5 hrs each. $599 USD

Astrological Health Reading

This reading emphasizes the health of the body and how to keep it in harmony and balance with the outside environment.  I use various systems of knowledge including Ayurveda, Chinese Medicine, Holistic Medicine, Homeopathy, and whatever else works well. All of these systems could really fall under the branch of “energy medicine” and that is what I am also working with. I am not a qualified doctor, and this is not exactly an Ayurvedic style health reading, though I do often emphasize that.  Ayurveda is the health system that was developed by the same ancient seers of India who also developed Vedic Astrology. The two are like branches of the same tree and overlap somewhat in that they both help us live more holistically. It is possibly the oldest system of medicine on the planet, at least 3,000 years old.  “Ayur” means life or longevity and “Veda” means knowledge, so Ayurveda translates to the knowledge of longevity.

It should be noted that I am in no way trying to “practice medicine” as this is a serious crime in the United States to practice medicine without a license.  What I am able to do is give “general information” and give personal lifestyle advice based on your chart and its indications…But this advice is much more accurate because of its basis on the astrological chart.  We know that good advice can be good advice but not always for everyone. Not all people have the same natural constitution and one person may be better off eating mostly raw foods, while another may feel horrible when they eat the same way.  Dietary advice, lifestyle and routine, and how to adjust to the changes throughout the different seasons will all be covered. More importantly though is that we cover this information in a way that is catered to you as an individual and your specific energetic health makeup.  Approximately 1 hr.  $199 USD

Dharma/Life Path/Career Analysis

Learn what the chart says about your Dharma in life. Dharma is a Sanskrit word that (like most Sanskrit words) has many layers of meaning but roughly translates to one’s “righteous duty” or “purpose in the world”.  One’s dharma is their innate calling in life that only they are meant to do. Krishna says it is better to do one’s own dharma imperfectly, than the dharma of another. This reading is about getting one in harmony with that Dharma. Dharma also signifies “one’s innate nature”, because each person’s innate nature sets them up for a particular type of work or duty that is their role to play in upholding the goodness of the world.  For example, some people will naturally make a great biologist, and it is simply in their nature. Trying to keep that kid away from a science textbook is just a waste of time. Another person’s nature or “dharma”  may incline them more towards being a professional athlete, a monk, or an author of children’s books.  We are all here for a reason and have a path that is laid out for us to walk. This path is our dharma.  There is really so much that can be said about what each individual is here to do on Earth and this is one of my favorite aspects of Jyotish. It is also important to note that not all of us will have a career that is our dharma, but all of us have a particular life path we are walking, and the natal chart can give insight about that path. 1-1.5 hours – $249     2-2.5 hours – $299

Relationship Compatibility Reading

There are two options, if the reading is just for you and how to make the most of your relationships, choose this option. With this you will learn about your strengths and weaknesses that you have with your relationship/love karma. Remedies or “corrective actions” will be suggested to make the most of the good and minimize the bad. Some forecasting can be included in this option if it is desired.  $189/1hr.

Choose this option if you want to have a full compatibility reading where both parties have their charts read and examined, and the strengths and weaknesses to the compatibility is shown between the two as well as their innate issues that each may face regardless of whom they are with. Various solutions, remedies, and corrective actions will be suggested, which will differ depending on the charts in question. $299/1.5-2 hrs. 

Birth Chart Rectification

If you do not know your exact time of birth and what want to know it so that more exact and reliable astrological predictions can be made, this is the reading to select.  What I need from you is the day of your birth to be known. I cannot rectify if the day of birth is not known. (If this is the case for you, please see ask one single question, where birth time is not necessary to be known.)  I will also need a photograph of you with your face and hands in the picture, and your height and weight.  Along with this, I will also need a list of all the most significant events in your life that you can list down to the exact day. Please do not list them if you do not know the exact day they occurred, or if they are a death or birth of another person.  Also share any extremes you have experienced in your life, such as extreme wealth or poverty, sickness or health, etc. To rectify properly is very tedious and difficult work, so I charge a higher fee than some, but I make sure to do it right.

For a rectification where the birth time is known within a 30 minute interval, and one is trying to get the exact time down to a 30 second – 1 minute window to be able to use the vargas and dasa systems more accurately: $399

In the case that a rectification must be done where the birth time is known down to a 3 hour window the fee is lower. For example, if one does not know the exact hour but knows that they were born in the afternoon. With this rectification we can find out what the rising sign is and fine tune the vargas as well: $299

Time Capsule Reading

This is a reading to get for a newborn child, or anyone under 18 yrs of age. The basic idea is that I do a reading for the child about the overall life path and any unique karmas I see in the chart. I give some predictions and some forecasts for what I expect this person to do or be involved in. This reading is initially meant only for the parents to listen to. They can have this template to listen to and see how it plays out over time, as the child grows. It is not something to live and die by, but something of an impressionistic self portrait of the child.

The idea is that later on when the child is grown, at the discretion of the parents, they let the native hear the recording as an adult. The recording given some 20 years ago of the native’s birth chart and what was predicted or forecasted for them could potentially be very insightful.

In this way the reading is like a time capsule, created in the youth or even at the birth of the child, and rediscovered at a time that divine providence ordains, when it will most enrich the native.

$150 USD – 45 min recording

$300 USD – 90 min recording

Level 3 – “Royal Level” Birth Chart Reading

This would be the reading to choose if you have ever wanted to hire an astrologer to really go in depth and spend a whole week or more working on just your chart.  If you have studied astrology, or know someone who has really put in a lot of years in study, then you have probably realised that there is a lot to be seen from the chart. There is no way it can all be seen in just a few hours or in one session. There is no way it can all be seen even with this option either, but we will get much closer and see much more. I love to work at this level but rarely do I have the option, as most people cannot afford to hire an astrologer for so many hours. In this reading, I use all 16 varga charts, and all the dasas I am competent in using, and basically all the techniques I have. I look at your chart from many, many, different perspectives. You are basically paying me to spend around 12 hours on your chart in just research alone (not counting the hours we spend having the sessions), spread out over the course of a week or longer. We will have 3 sessions for 90 minutes each. Sometimes it is a lot to digest so it can help to spread the information out and give you a week-long interval to contemplate it.

You must have an accurate time of birth to do this reading, and I must review your chart and make sure you and I are compatible. I do this so as not to waste my own time or the time of the client, and to be sure that I can help you before I begin to work with you at a serious level. One really does not know the full value of what Astrology offers without having an Astrologer take the time to study your chart as they would have in the old days, or by taking the time to undertake the study yourself, which is a lifelong endeavor.  You will also receive a pdf of your natal chart, all the vargas, and other tables that I use during the session. Remedial measures will be discussed in the first session. This means you will have things to work on and practice on your own, after the first session. Then when we meet up again we can see how it went, what worked, what did not, and make adjustments if we need to.

3 sessions -1.5 hrs each – $1008

With this option, I offer a free 15 minute zoom chat first. This way we can both talk and get a feel for each other and see if we will work well together first. If you would like to chat with me before comitting to this option, or to know more about it, feel free to send me an email requesting the 15 minute zoom chat.



Payment is done through Paypal, venmo, cryptocurrency, or Zelle bank transfer. The simplest way to pay is to use the venmo or paypal link posted below for payments and add a note specifying which reading you would like. You can also pay with cryptocurrency if you like. My Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Solana address is also posted below. Solana is the fastest and lowest on fees. You are welcome to do a “test run” first (especially if you are new to crypto) and send $5 or $10 first, and then send an email to see if I got it. When that goes thru I’ll let you know and you can send the remaining difference over and then you are on the lineup!

The nature of this work is always fluctuating, so make sure to check on my availability before deciding on a reading if you need an urgent answer.  It is common for me to be booked up 1-5 months out. (NOTE: PLEASE READ THE POLICIES AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE BEFORE REQUESTING A READING.)

Teaching Workshops/Group Events

Teaching at a recent Ayurveda Workshop in Asheville, NC
Teaching at an Ayurveda Workshop in Asheville, NC, circa 2017.

I also am available to do group events and teach workshops as well.  Several times a year I teach workshops in my hometown of Charleston, South Carolina. I am also open to traveling to teach Jyotish or Kriya yoga, so if you have a space and an audience that is hungry for yogic knowledge maybe reach out and we could set something up.

This sort of thing is highly in demand right now, so if you are a yoga teacher offering certifications, or teaching Ayurveda or another Vedanga, you may want to consider this, giving your students more of a holistic appreciation of the vedic traditions by adding in some more familiarity with Jyotish and other vedangas.

I also have done readings for groups at weddings and at potlucks and such. If you live in the Southeastern USA then you may want to consider this.

Retainer Options

I am available to hire on retainer for you or your company. This is if you have a certain amount of questions or important decisions you will have to make every month, we can set up a retainer fee, so that you can ask as many questions as you want and we keep a log of them and how much time it takes each month. I’ll have to of course examine your chart and make sure we can work well together in this capacity first, but if this interests you send me an email with the title “Retainer options” to


Some of these policies may seem like common sense but please read through them carefully to make sure we are on the same page before requesting a session.

  • Due to the extensive amount of work that is required before the session, I DO NOT give refunds.  Please make sure you are serious about the session or do not book it. If you change your mind, you cannot get your money back as the time and energy is non-refundable on my end.
  • All readings are completely confidential.
  • All readings are recorded, usually with both video and audio copies emailed to you after the session. You are responsible for downloading your reading, as I will have to delete it in a few weeks to make room for others on the cloud.
  • Again, when you get your mp3 recording, you must download and save your recording. It will be accessible on the shared drive for a few weeks (less than a month) and after that I will have to delete it to make room for the many other recordings I have to upload each week. I do archive the recordings but will charge a $15 data retrieval fee to have to reupload it and resend it to you even a few months after your session.
  • I am available for readings regularly around normal business hours, 9-4 PM EST time. When requesting a reading please be aware of this and consider it with the same acumen as going to a doctor or dentist or other professional advisor. This implies that one will take time out of their work week or schedule to have the reading. One does not expect their doctor to meet with them on weekends or after 5pm, so please do not expect your Astrologer to be able to do so either. Only request a live reading if you can be available on a weekday between 9-4 EST.
  • If I was to critique my own self, I would say that I am more of an artist, taking my time to do the work I am most drawn to do at any time. So I can never really say when exactly I will get the reading done for you.  I feel like that sometimes puts unnecessary pressure on me which doesn’t help. I am mainly focused on giving you the RIGHT ANSWER and with integrity, and I do not care how long that takes me. Im also not focused on organization or presenting things in the most pretty or marketable way, Im more concerned with the quality of the information. So this is how I work, and I do not work any better or faster if you email me constantly about when your reading is coming, but you can feel free to check in about it. One email is fine. Sending 3 or more is not helping. That is slowing me down even more and also inconveniencing all the other clients I have to get to.
  • Along with the previous point, it is normal to have to wait 2-6 months to get a full natal chart reading. Most of the other shorter readings can be done in a shorter window of time, closer to a week or 2-3 weeks but I can never say for sure. It is best to check in with me first to see about the wait time if your questions are time sensitive. I do have links to automated astrology reports that I think are the next best thing to an in person session under the “Astrology Reports” tab.
  • Unfortunately most of the more impatient clients that bug me about this never read my policy but again I must state that if you need an immediate answer now, and you are going to be impatient and pushy with me, sending me extra emails that just slow it down for everyone, please just find another astrologer.
  • When discussing times for scheduling I am always referring to EST time and expect you to meet me on EST time. This works the best because I won’t know what time zone it is for you, but my time zone always stays the same, though working with people in different time zones throughout the day. I am on NYC time. Do not expect me to know what time zone you are in, even if you have already mentioned it. If I say we have the session at 1 pm and somehow forget to say EST, you need to be aware that I mean 1 PM EST time and do not assume I know what time zone you are in.
  • 24-hour advance notice is required to reschedule a session. Unless some serious event or emergency has occurred to prevent you from participating. And if so, I’ll know 😉
  • When it comes to pricing, I do wish I could make this work affordable to everyone, but I have many expenses in order to even begin to be able to do this work properly, and to pay off the many years of education I needed to become a skilled Astrologer… A real Astrologer that is, not just someone who decides to charge for readings in their first year of study. I am old school. I have been studying and practicing jyotish for over 15 years as of the time of this writing (2022). I have sacrificed much of the brightest and best years of my life in training to cultivate this art and to do so in an ethical manner. A Vedic Astrology reading is a priceless thing at the end of the day. I only want to work with those who agree on this matter. There is no price you can put on work that is so hard that most of humanity still considers it impossible to do (predicting the future is not commonly believed to be possible). If you can do a job that is so hard that most people would not believe it possible, you would want to get paid accordingly.
  • If you are a native born Indian and residing in India you may request a small discount. I want to help as many people as I can and I know many in India do not have the means to afford all of the reading options I mention.
  • Also, please take time to contemplate your life and what you would like to know about, beforehand.  If you are able to meditate, please do so before the session, as it will help you to be more receptive to what is heard.  It is in no way necessary, but if you like to take baths, you may want to do that before a session, if convenient.  In yogic tradition, it is advisable to bathe before hand as water helps to balance the chemical activity within the body, also helping to relax the body and clarify the mind.

In the old days, Vedic Astrologers did not have to charge as the King/government would support them, and people just offered what they had. One reading I may not get much, but the next reading I may be given a cow and rice and be fed for the whole year. It is a little more complicated nowadays.  To even afford good quality food and a peaceful space to do this work in is quite expensive here in the United States.  I really appreciate any additional donations a person may feel inclined to make, as it is very challenging financially to do what I do at this period. I am a very research oriented astrologer and I do not get as much time to research as I would like, since it doesnt pay the bills.  Same with mundane astrology, I would love to research what is going to happen in this country and others over the next few years, but I have no time I can afford to set aside for that as no Nations are going to come to me looking for readings any time soon.  So I can only do what pays the bills at present. Donating money is the best way to attract more money and abundance and will help in my mundane affairs so that I may have more time to devote to astrology research which is strongly needed at this time. People who get readings in person usually give me a small tip, so if you are not having a session in person, maybe consider a small donation, as a tip. I do not expect it, but it is greatly appreciated 🙂
