Yoga and Astrology

Astrology can be defined as the study of the relationships which appear to exist between events and experiences on earth and the movements of planets in the sky; that the heavens and the earth share a common space and time.  It is not to say that the planets are the cause of events on earth but that they reflect the events happening on earth, suggesting that they occur simultaneously and are mutually reflective. In other words, “as above, so below”.

An astrological birth chart, also known as a Natal Chart, is a diagram of where all the planets were situated in their journey around the Sun (from our vantage point on earth) at the time of birth. An astrological reading of a birth chart can reveal a detailed picture of a person’s character, potential, relationships, family life and career and it is completely unique to everyone. Astrology is a fascinating subject, one that is an amazing tool for self-discovery and personal development.

Yoga is a Sanskrit word meaning “to yoke” or “to harness” and is considered to be the union of body, mind and spirit; it is representative of wellbeing on all levels, physically, emotionally, mentally and spirituality. Regular practice of yoga will generate a sense of peace and harmony, being at one with the environment.

Connecting the two ancient philosophies of Astrology and Yoga is the Astral Body, a part of our Energy Body through which we experience all emotions. Kamakosha is the Sanskrit for the Astral Body.

Situated within the Astral Body are the Chakras, subtle revolving discs of energy that run up the spine within the subtle body linking the physical body with the mind and spirit. Each of the seven primary chakras has a planetary ruler and displays the influences of that planet.

If the chakras represent our inner universe then the universal energies within the solar system exist within us too.
