A Wise Young Man Named Anand

My birthday is July 23, and depending on who you believe, my sun sign is either Cancer or Leo. All my life I have deliberately chosen Leo over C honestly because I always wanted to be queen of the jungle.

Anand Mehrotra
― thank you Brittny for introducing us in Rishikesh ― and Vedic astrology, or Jyotish, the science of light. After a profound reading last November, I found myself no longer guessing about my sign and have gained new insight.
Anand used the date, time and location of my birth to prepare my chart. My sun sign, according to the calculation, is unquestionably Cancer. 
Interestingly, Vedic astrology considers the ascendent more influential than one’s sun. My rising sign and moon are both in Libra, making me a double Libra. Squarely Libra. A seeker of balance and harmony. Sociable, cheerful and charming!
Anand also told me I recently completed a BIG Saturn period; whew! now so much of the past struggles make sense. I’m now thankfully entering an uplifting period of Mercury, a time of quick changes, the creation of new possibilities and personal transformation. The years 2012 through 2015 will be an especially magnetic period. Until then, he told me to crystalize my personal expressions of creativity. And write. So here I am.
Interested in learning more about this wise man? If you’re in the Washington, DC, area mid-August, Anand will teach yogic philosophy at Tranquil Space as well as offer Vedic readings. 
In addition, Anand is the subject of the compelling new documentary, The Highest Pass, which will premiere later this month at The Topango Film Festival in Los Angeles. 

Dites moi, SVP, would you like an enlightening sneak peek
