I’m sure you’ll agree that as we make our way through this journey called life, we inevitably run into bumps in the road. On occasion, we might even get hopelessly lost. When these things happen, being open to help even from the most unexpected sources can sometimes be the key to getting back on track.
Fifteen years ago, my husband and I walked away from high-stress software engineering careers in the San Francisco Bay Area, sold our home, packed up our belongings, and moved to a remote red rock canyon in the high desert of northern New Mexico. We needed to chill.
But right from the beginning, everything started going haywire. And I mean right from the beginning. As we got into our car in the driveway in California for the 2-day drive, the outside door handle of the driver’s door just pulled right off. Talk about an omen.
We didn’t notice at first but over the next month or so, more and more difficulties came up until it became painfully obvious that we were being buried in unresolvable issues. The movers lost some of our things and damaged others and would not reimburse us. The contractor building a bridge for us began to falsify his records and neglect his commitments. We were in escrow on our new property and everything was taking inordinately long and costing much more than had been indicated. The lady at the title company was apparently in cahoots with the seller’s realtor and we had to watch like hawks for bogus charges she occasionally put on our contract. And on and on.
One day, I saw a pattern: California smooth, New Mexico bumpy. When we lived in California, things went pretty well, and when there were difficulties they resolved fairly quickly. But here we were in New Mexico, with more stubborn issues in this short time than we had ever had in California over a 20-year period.
What was going on? Was it this place?
Well, as it turns out… it was.
Here’s how we confirmed it and where our help ultimately came from.
Someone With A Bird’s Eye View
Around that time I was talking with my brother about our ongoing issues here in New Mexico, and he told me he had gotten something called a Locational reading from a Vedic astrologer.
“A what from a what?” I asked, even as I thought “Oh, give me a break.” and rolled my eyes. The extent of my familiarity with astrology was reading sun signs in newspapers when I was a girl. Not helpful, and a little too woo-woo, even for me.
No, really, he assured me. He and his wife were considering a move and had gone to an astrologer who was able to use their charts and see how they matched certain locations. He said it was really helpful.
With nothing to lose, my husband and I made an appointment with this fellow. Let’s just see if he can tell what’s going on, we figured.
And as promised — but as we barely dared hope — the charts revealed to his trained eye a much bigger picture than we had from our perspective. He saw some significant underlying dynamics that were completely hidden from us. He could see how our unique patterns harmonized or clashed with those of this exact place.
The information we received was enlightening, to say the least. Not only was the astrologer able to point out what was going on, but he was able to give us some great guidance about how to work with the situation to make things go more smoothly as we moved forward, as well as information about timing.
I couldn’t believe it! This was really helpful! How did he do that?
Ultimately, I found it all so fascinating that I just had to look into it. Before I knew it, I was involved in a serious study of this complex art & science known as Jyotish (Vedic astrology.) Because I had been involved with Eastern spirituality for some time, I resonated perfectly with this form of Indian astrology and its integrated philosophies.
It’s Not About Signs & Planets: It’s About YOU
Much to my chagrin, I had discovered that astrology wasn’t foolish after all — but I had been! On the contrary, it was powerful and comprehensive, practical and helpful, and even kind of fun! It really is enlivening learning what your chart reveals for you.
I am so glad I made it past my contempt prior to investigation and tried it out.
As I look back, I really don’t know how we would have been able to make sense of what was happening or know what to do without this amazing tool. In fact, if I’d known then what I know now, I’d have gotten a locational reading before buying property and moving.
And I didn’t have to know or care a thing about planets and signs and all that. I left it in the hands of my capable astrologer to use those things himself to reveal patterns in my life, which was all I really cared about. And to that end, it worked like a charm.
There’s a Place for Jyotish in Your Life
I love it when I get to watch people dancing through life, naturally confident of their direction, aware of all the nuances of what is influencing them, and unconcerned about what is developing. However, that’s pretty rare!
More often than not, we can all use a little insight and guidance. And Jyotish can provide that.
It really is like having a road-map of sorts. And haven’t we all learned it helps a heck of a lot to have a map?

On my Jyotish Articles page, you can find an article about what Jyotish can help you with. Not only can it address locations (oops, no pun intended) which was so helpful to my husband and me, but it can help with your career (including fulfillment and money), relationships, health, psychological tendencies, and last but not least, your spiritual nature.
Over the years since then, I’ve really enjoyed being able to offer this service and watch how it positively influences peoples’ lives. My clients are from all walks of life, and all find it valuable in their own way.
If you think this might be helpful to you or if you just want more information, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I’m here — yes, still in this lovely red rock canyon… and making the best of it!
