Aligned with the Stars

Astrology for Yogis #3

Yoga and astrology (Jyotish) have been linked for hundreds of years. The science of Vedic astrology differs from Western astrology in reckoning the sign position of the planets and offers important insights for people on a yogic or spiritual path. Let’s look at the month ahead to learn about your yoga practices, life choices, and how you can align and connect to the cosmic cycles.

The Leo Sun Person
If you were born between August 14 and September 14, you are a Leo Sun according to Vedic astrology. According to modern Vedic astrology texts, those born under a Leo Sun are generally physically strong, good-looking, with lots of energy and can be very successful in their career and life pursuits. They may be egotistical, headstrong and intense. Leos think that they are always right (they often are), which can cause problems in marriage and relationships. Leos often learn from their fathers or other authority figures in life. They have high goals and are good communicators. Sincere and influential, Leos bear the intelligence and the drive to accomplish their objectives.

The Leo Yogi
The Leo Sun yogi is high-energy with a drive to succeed in their yoga practice. They do well in class and are happy to demonstrate a posture for their fellow students. They like being the center of attention of their classmates and can become successful yoga teachers. Need to borrow a yoga mat or a ride home from class? Ask a Leo yogi because they are generous to all. Natural scenery is what they enjoy best and they may go out alone to think or meditate. The Leo yogi can be philosophical and very knowledgeable about spiritual subjects. If you are a Leo and a yogi, your stars are truly aligned!
