At the time of birth, the planetary configuration in the sky is imprinted in you when you are born. In other words, planets and stars are just not external bodies –they live within us and our psyche. In the matrix of time and space, each one of us is born with a unique imprint of the celestial bodies. But the planets are not stationary, they transit every so often over the birth imprint in your psyche activating portals and delivering lessons.
An astrology reading is an opportunity to understand your own unique planetary configurations and lessons that are being delivered to you by them. I understood myself with great clarity after I started analyzing my own planetary map through the lens of vedic astrology.
