Did you know that your Vedic birth chart will tell us which colors and crystals to include in your mala? Meditating with a mala based on your birth chart is like jumping into the current moving towards Oneness! Please note that this is for a birth chart ONLY and does not include a mala, mini mala or kit. (If you're interested in a chart-based mala, keep reading!) Once it's completed, your Vedic Birth Chart will be digitally sent to you using the email provided. Please be sure to use an email you check frequently!
In order to build a Vedic Birth Chart, we need your:
- birth date
- birth location
- exact time of birth
This is necessary because every two hours (not on the hour, mind you), a new constellation is rising on the horizon. If you're off by even a minute, your entire chart can be altered! If you're unable to track down your exact time of birth, please consider a mala based on a particular intention / mantra or a chakra on which you'd like to focus.
Please note that this is for a birth chart ONLY and does not include a mala, mini mala or kit.
- If you'd like a custom mala based on your particular birth chart, you can find that here and you'll get $5 off your chart!
- If you've attended a mala making workshop and you're ordering a mala kit based on a particular birth chart, please use the promotional code: VEDIC to receive the same $5 discount!
- Mala Making Workshop students receive a complimentary birth chart! If you weren't able to get your done prior to the event, please use the promotional code: WORKSHOP to receive your chart at no additional charge.
What is Vedic Astrology?
Jyotisha or Jyotishya (from Sanskrit jyotiṣa, from jyóti- "light, heavenly body") is the traditional Hindu system of astrology, also known Vedic astrology. Jyotiṣa is one of the Vedāṅga, the six auxiliary disciplines used to support Vedic rituals. The foundation of Vedic astrology is the notion of bandhu of the Vedas (scriptures), which is the connection between the microcosm and the macrocosm. Vedic astrology includes several nuanced sub-systems of interpretation and prediction with elements not found in Hellenistic (Western) astrology. The main texts upon which classical Indian astrology is based are early medieval compilations, notably the Bṛhat Parāśara Horāśāstra, and Sārāvalī by Kalyāṇavarma. The Horāshastra dates to the 7th to 8th centuries. The Sārāvalī likewise dates to around 800 CE.
Astrology remains an important facet of folk belief in the contemporary lives of many Hindus. In Hindu culture, newborns are traditionally named based on their jyotiṣa charts, and astrological concepts are pervasive in the organization of the calendar and holidays and in making major decisions such as those about marriage, opening a new business or moving into a new home. Many Hindus believe that heavenly bodies, including the planets, have an influence throughout the life of a human being and these planetary influences are the "fruit of karma." The Navagraha, planetary deities, are considered subordinate to Ishvara (the Hindu concept of God) in the administration of justice. Thus, it is believed that these planets can influence earthly life.
