Self-Discovery ThroughVedic Astrology

At the time of birth, the planetary configuration in the sky is imprinted within us. Planets and stars are just not external bodies; they live within us and our psyche. In the matrix of time and space, each one of us is born with a unique imprint of the celestial bodies. But the planets are not stationary, they transit every so often over the birth imprint activating portals and delivering lessons.

An astrology reading is an opportunity to understand your own unique planetary configurations and lessons that are being delivered to you by them. I understood myself with great clarity after I started analyzing myself through the lens of vedic astrology.

Know Yourself Through Your Ascendant Sign

Ascendant or Lagna is the zodiac sign rising in the east at the time of birth. The ascendant sets up the entire chart and is an important identity factor for the individual. Brihat Parashara Hora Shashtra indicates reading the chart from the ascendant as the 1st house.

A person born with Leo rising, will have Leo as the 1st house, followed by Virgo as the 2nd, Libra as the 3rd, Aquarius as the 7th, Taurus as the 10th and Cancer as the 12th house. Similarly, someone born with Gemini rising will have Cancer as the 2nd house, Virgo as the 4th house, Sagittarius as the 7th house, Taurus as the 12th house and so on.














Vedic astrology not only has predictive power, but the ability to understand your psychic imprints and karmic cycles. Understand what planetary influences are dominant in your life, how are they affecting your life and when will these influences change.


On the journey of self-discovery, we often obsess over the least integrated part of us; which is the other person. Each one of us brings one thing on the table in a relationship –  ourselves. It is therefore important to assess our own capacity for love and attract a mate.

The next step is to understand the compatibility between two people. I have a 3 dimensional approach to relationship: (1) Each individual’s capacity for relationship (2) Synergy between the 2 charts; flow of energy from one person to the other and what buttons get pushed (3) Kutta scoring based on Vedic Astrology concepts of compatibility.


“Doing a reading with Malini was surprising and delightful — I learned more about who I am, what my purpose is, and where I’m going in this life. She has a beautiful way of communicating and connecting when she sits with you. She is wise and loving. It’s an honor to be able to share with her and learn from her.”

"Its beyond a treat to get a Vedic astrology reading from Malini. Its an illuminating gift. One that revealed much and left a lot to ruminate on. Listening to her elaborate on my chart made me want to enroll in a course so I could learn this science myself, that's how fascinating it was for me.Her background is incredibly ...deep, its practically in her bones. As a scientist/researcher by profession, she's surgically precise and super thorough about it. She even reverse engineered the math on my chart to determine my exact birth hour down to the minute, which my mother later verified.Yet her delivery is gentle and digestible, in morsels a laymen like myself could easily comprehend. Pennies dropped left and right: both longstanding and current life patterns made sense in forehead slapping ways. To hear how heavenly bodies were aligned at one's birth, how these celestial forces have shifted and shaped one's course and how they influence our present life is truly fascinating. Its so layered, so complex I could barely grasp the ABCs: houses, signs, solar, lunar nodes, the intersection of those and dozens of other factors.. truly a mind boggling paradigm that deepens the further one dives into it yet Malini breaks it down as simple as we need it to be. Not only does she have a deep reverence and curiosity for this science, her vast knowledge of Hindu mythology adds even more layer to the richness of her readings. Her strong intuitive abilities know what is most beneficial to be transmitted.The scientific precision, the respect and love for this craft, the mythological tangent(s), combined with keen intuition, delivered in an understandable way, with honesty and empathy... what more could one ask for in a reading?"

"I have had previous readings of my Natal Chart and the result had always left me feeling confused and without direction. When Malini read my Natal Chart, it was a vastly different experience and one that was full of rich knowledge.   It gave me a solid understanding of my foundation, which then helped me align to... actions/direction. I found that she was able to capture my essence, which then became woven into the fabric of my reading. It truly was a unique session, Malini certainly has a gift that can benefit many souls."
