Jyotisha (Vedic Astrology) Self Development
Highest Life Purpose Consultation and Mentoring

vedic astrologyEach of us was born to enjoy our life to its fullest. Yet often we find ourselves bound to physical and emotional patterns that keep us either regretting the past or worrying about the future.

Jyotisha is the ancient system of Vedic astrology that provides you with the precious gift of perspective. There’s no higher blessing than knowing who you are as a unique individual, what you came here to do, and how best you can live your life and influence those around you for the better.

A Jyotisha consultation with Dr. Katyayani Poole offers compassionate guidance to help you:

  • gain insight into your highest purpose in life
  • solve repetitive problems in relationships
  • discover your unique talents, gifts, and blessings
  • create strategies for fulfilling your unique material and spiritual destiny
  • choose the right time and right location for the right action

“...is perhaps the most empowering thing to walk away with from a Jyotisha session. When someone can confirm your cosmic design, then you no longer have to think or worry that things should be other than they are. This session was very clarifying, supportive, and inspirational. It reaffirmed my inner truth, so that now I can get back down to business....living it. Thank you! ”

~Jeremy W., Denver, CO

“Dr. Katy was wonderful to work with. She helped bring clarity and insight to questions I've been pondering and gave me important guidance on the unfolding of my chart. Especially helpful were her explanations of the nakshatras and how they relate to my dharmic path. Thank you for a very enlightening experience! ”

~R.J., Fresno, CA

“Thorough feedback that makes perfect sense and is an inspiration as I move forward on my path. Dr. Poole was able to articulate aspects of my personality that I've never been able to explain before. She was a delight to speak with. Thank you! ”

~Maya, Boulder, CO

“This was my second reading with Katyayani and this time, even more so than the first time I was blown away by her insights, wisdom, and immense knowledge of the Hindu Archetypes, Dieties, history, and tradition. As an astrologer myself I feel that Katyayani (Dr Poole) is one of the best Vedic Astrologers in the world, and a world class human being as well.”

~Rundy Duphiney, Spiritual Teacher, Mt. Shasta, CA

It offers practical advice to help you overcome recurring obstacles that are impeding the natural flow of happiness, health, wealth, and peace of mind in your life.

(Note: While this consultation covers your life as a whole, you’ll also be able to tailor your reading to address present concerns.)

Each session is digitally recorded as an MP3 file and sent to you via secure email following your session, enabling you to re-listen to your session at any time.

“This was my second reading with Katyayani. She offers positive insight that both strengthens and inspires. Being able to understand and accept the larger patterns at work in our lives gives us the freedom to be who we really are!”

~ Christie H., Teacher at a Private School for the Arts, Idyllwild, CA ~

I have now been working with Dr. Katyayani Poole for about 12 months. I have found this program so enriching. Her insight into my life and path are incredibly helpful. I find the accuracy mind boggling! I feel that through this work with her I can achieve my highest potential to live the best and happiest life God has intended for me.

For many years I worked with a very wise and spiritual therapist. I now find my monthly sessions with Dr. Katyayani even more to the point, because of all the accuracy and knowledge that the Jyotisha contains. Her intuition and take on life & the world are also such an amazing gift. There are so many things that she knows about my life without a word from me because it’s all in the chart. Her ability to read the information comes from such an elevated and magical place.

Each month as we go house by house, besides learning all of the intricacies of my life I am also learning a bit about this amazing system! What an amazing gift she is in my life.

~ Nan M., Artist & Home Design Consultant, Malibu, CA ~

“I am truly in awe of my work in both classes and Jyotisha mentoring with Katyayani. I now better understand what my life's purpose truly is and as a result feel more confident about my work and contribution to this world. Katyayani's skillful understanding of Vedic Astrology as well as her mastery of Sanskrit studies is a gift I am constantly wanting others to experience. I’m so grateful.”

~ Jeanie M., Yoga Teacher, Boulder, CO ~
