INTRODUCTION TO ASTROLOGY
After receiving an insightful astrology reading 30 years ago, Pashyo has been on a quest to discover the secrets of life. She read countless books, took classes in Berlin, participated in 'Astrology in the Circle' classes in Pune and completed the Osho Astrology Training with Amrit Arpana in 1995. Pashyo gives private chart reading sessions and teaches an introductory class called "Astrology for Meditators".
"The universe is a living body, an organic unit. In it nothing is isolated, all is joined together. Whatever is far away is joined to that which is near. Nothings is separate...Life is a whole. If you can perceive this wholeness, only then will you understand astrology." OSHO
Diving into astrology we start to identify the gifts and talents we brought into this life and connect with our dreams and desires. We also see our unconscious patterns of behavior, our automatic reactions and hidden motifs. We uncover old habits and belief systems that keep us chained to past experiences and prevent us from living a fulfilled life. Astrology is an adventure into the fabric of life and death.
