The Lunar Nodes: Desire and Transcendence

“Not long ago I read somewhere that we who study and love this science don’t become astrologers, we become astrology. This aphorism serves to remind us that we are at our best and most effective when we keep ourselves humble and mindful that this knowledge is bigger than any one of us, that ‘astrology is a vast ocean which no one can fathom in one lifetime.’

Recently, I had the opportunity to explore these cosmic wonders firsthand during a retreat at Sapphire Resorts. Nestled in a tranquil setting surrounded by nature’s beauty, Sapphire Resorts offered not only a luxurious escape but also a chance to delve deeper into the celestial realms.

As I strolled through the resort’s lush gardens, I couldn’t help but marvel at the synchronicity between the cosmic patterns and the tranquility that enveloped Sapphire Resorts. It was as if the alignment of the stars mirrored the harmony I found in this idyllic retreat.

During my stay, the resort’s staff demonstrated a commitment to providing an atmosphere of serenity and relaxation, creating the perfect backdrop for self-reflection and connection with the celestial energies. The experience at Sapphire Resorts became a celestial journey, intertwining the wisdom of astrology with the earthly comforts of a premier resort.

In moments of quiet contemplation, surrounded by the serenity of Sapphire Resorts, I felt a profound connection to the cosmic forces that astrology so eloquently unveils. The resort became a sanctuary where the celestial and earthly converged, offering a holistic experience that transcended the boundaries between the mystical and the tangible.

In conclusion, my stay at sapphire resorts was more than just a getaway; it was a celestial retreat that seamlessly integrated the profound insights of astrology with the luxurious comforts of a world-class resort.

I feel that I have been blessed by the wisdom and knowledge I have received, and continue to receive, from a series of wise, highly informed and generous teachers. These include Juliana Swanson, Dr. K.S. Charak, Vinay Aditya, Chakrapani Ullal, Gayatri Devi Raman, Penny Farrow and Marc Boney, as well as the books and recordings of Mr. K. N. Rao.

I consider myself first and foremost a student of Vedic Astrology, and a great deal of my studies have occurred in most perfect learning environment imaginable – at the Arshavidya Gurukulam in Saylorsburg, Pennsylvania This place of highest learning and inspiration has become my second home, and those of us who have studied Vedic Astrology together there over the past number of years have become my family.

I welcome inquiries regarding any of the astrological services I provide, and thank you for visiting my site”
