“As in the microcosm, so in the macrocosm.”
This profound axiom is a powerful reminder that each and every individual is connected to something greater, a vast reality beyond the capacity of the limited intellectual mind to ever fully understand.
And yet, as if it is hard-wired into our human DNA, we seek and strive to understand what we can. As we come closer to knowing who we really are, we are able to align with reality in such a way that allows us to navigate life with positivity.
Understanding alone can be a powerful medicine, a potent remedy in the face of challenges, a guiding light.
Jyotisha – both an art and a science – is an ancient and traditional system of astrology which can grant the boon of greater understanding. The patterns formed by the planets and stars at the moment of birth provide the “macrocosmic” map to allow us to better understand our “microcosmic” experience. This enables us to journey through life with greater clarity and awareness.
