My name is Sara Rita da Costa, a Portuguese Certified Vedic Astrologer (Master of Arts in Vedic Astrology) from the university of the world-renowned Astrologer and teacher Joni Patry, a certified Integral Vedic Counsellor and Ayurvedic-Lifestyle Consultant by the American Institute of Vedic Studies of Dr. David Frawley (Pandit Vamadeva Shastri), one of the most honored teachers of Yoga, Ayurveda, Vedanta, and Vedic Astrology both in India and the West.
Astrology requires constant study and upgrading of knowledge. I regularly practice with my teacher, Girish Vaithilingan, an experienced Vedic Astrologer from South India, and I am also involved in an ongoing research project in medical astrology.
This 2-year period was a catalyst in a life-long learning journey!
Before choosing this path, I worked in Spain and Belgium as a licensed nurse for 10 years. I also hold a Master’s degree in Conflict and Development from Ghent University, which allowed me to start a career in development cooperation.
My passion for India and for the ancient Vedic teachings guided my life towards spirituality, through the practice of Yoga, and the study of Jyotish and the Vedas. Meditation and recitation of mantras are part of my daily life. Through my teacher, Shantala Sriramaiah, I was initiated in Vedic chanting.
This website aims at guiding my clients in achieving their goals along their paths, with Vedic teachings and my personal experience as its foundation. One of my goals is to help people understand the essence of astrology, namely Vedic Astrology, which is often unknown by the general public, and to bring Vedic knowledge to the spotlight in our society that can use it to improve people’s lives.
I will regularly publish different articles in my blog.
