What is Vedic Astrology?

Vedic astrology, also known as ‘Jyotish’ (The Science of Light) is an ancient Indian science that studies the effects of planetary movements on our lives.

The basic principle of Vedic astrology is that all things are connected, and that our karma is determined by a predestined cosmic design. Vedic astrology is used to gain greater insight into our past, our present and our future destiny.

The main instrument in this practice is the astrological chart. It is a map of the planets in the signs of the zodiac. Charts are produced based on your exact time, date and place of birth called your ‘birth chart’ or ‘natal chart’.

The birth chart embodies your personal assets, personality, path, character and challenges. It helps you to resolve and balance life issues through self-understanding. It highlights the qualities you seek in a partner, the direction your career may take and your financial potential. The birth chart indicates how to develop strengths so you can become your best self. In Vedic astrology there are also sub-charts or divisional charts called ‘Vargas’ which can be examined deeply to explore significant areas more thoroughly. Areas include long-term relationships, marriage, career, children, success with purchasing property, financial stability or instability, health, travel, living abroad, emotional wellbeing, siblings, creativity and spiritual growth.

While the predictive ability of Vedic astrology can help one maneuver life with greater ease and grace, its ultimate gift is its ability to restore us to our own sense of self and intuitive knowing. We all possess an inner sense of knowing where the universal flow of life takes us, but at particular times, due to unforeseen changes such as stress or fear, we lose touch with it. At such times, Vedic astrology can help us reconnect to our intuition and the sense that life is unfolding exactly how it is supposed to.

vandana rich


For more than 20 years, Vandana’s primary residence was India where she volunteered for a non-profit, studied Vedic Philosophy and subsequently embarked on a life-long study of meditation and Vedic astrology (Jyotish).

During her time living in India Vandana also searched for her own soul’s purpose. This seeking resulted in her starting a Vedic astrology practice on returning back to Australia.  Vandana believes Vedic astrology is a tool to acquire deeper self-knowledge as well as understanding the connection between our soul journey and our highest expression of being.

Vandana was born in Australia. She obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and Media with Honours in 2001 and in 2004, she completed a Postgraduate in Therapy and Counselling at Swinburne University, Melbourne. Vandana studied Vedic Astrology under Dr. Arjun Pai, SueAnn McKean, Sam Geppi and Ernst Wilhelm.  Vandana’s Vedic astrology readings draw on the Vedic Sutras (verses) of Brihat Parasara Hora Sastra and the Jaimini System.

Vandana says, “I consider it a tremendous honour to read a person’s chart and to be present with them as together we navigate their personal history and their search for meaning.  My goal during the reading is to support a person to seek greater knowledge of themselves in an atmosphere of integrity and compassion”.
