The Relationship Between Yoga and Astrology
Our eternal essence is timeless and formless. Yet we become subject to the laws of time and space, and the soul temporarily forgets its true ‘Self’.
Yoga, the original technology of transformation, gives us the means to take care of the bodily form that comes from living in space. Working together, both astrology and yoga allow us to remember our nature and return to our origin.
Our happiness in life, our health, our accomplishments, and our relationships, all depend upon our vitality, our spiritual intent and our karmic actions.
Yoga is the way to insure we remain healthy in body, mind and spirit so we can successfully travel this path to enlightenment. Yet without understanding the nature of our innate self and our soul’s purpose, the timing and type of yoga practice may be inappropriate, and the actions we take may be ineffective.
This is the role of Astrology in the practice of Yoga. To understand our basic nature and our life purpose, and to align ourselves with the cosmic cycles of time to help us move forward.
The knowledge gained from reading our Astrological Birth Chart allows us to recognise and understand karmic patterns that impact our lives, and to work with our gifts to overcome our challenges and express our potentials at the highest level. Once we understand the curriculum for this lifetime which was seeded at the moment and place of our birth, then we can direct our awareness and elevate our consciousness through the practice of yoga to fulfill our purpose and achieve liberation from suffering and the illusory cycle of life and death. On the spiritual journey, Yoga provides the seeker with the answers to ‘How’ and ‘What’ while Astrology reveals ‘When’ and ‘Why’. Yoga provides the tools of asana, pranayama, mudra, mantra and meditation and teaches us how to use them. Astrology allows us to understand karma and the dharma that brought us into this existence and how to interact with our past, present and future.
Astrology reveals the purpose of this life and yoga gives us the calibre to achieve it.
