On the Stars, Karma and Turbulent Times


In yoga we learn about the body’s energy centers (chakras) and how they give us insight into our inner psychological world.  


For example, very simply stated, the root chakra relates to our need for security and a desire to feel grounded and stable.


Each chakra is not only associated with a color and an emotional concept, but also a planet, the sun or the moon. 

That is why astrology is an important, but often overlooked, part of yoga and why there is a connection between the chakras and astrology. 


According to Kriya yoga, astrology can reveal the type of karma your chakras hold and when these pieces of karma are likely to occur during your lifetime.


In this way, your personal birth chart can be a tool to better understand yourself and your life’s purpose. 


It is said you can “soften your karma” by using this knowledge to respond to life’s challenges in the best possible way from your soul’s evolutionary perspective.


On September 9th, Mars will go retrograde for the first time in two years, in the sign of Aries, which hasn’t happened since 1988. 

To Elaina Beam, an astrologer and yogi, it’s no coincidence that the unusual events we are experiencing now are all happening at this time. 

Mars retrograde will impact us energetically, both individually and collectively, through the upcoming months and beyond.  


Elaina will explain what astrology can tell us about the the rest of 2020 in her class “Astrological Tips for Turbulent Times,” timed to coincide with the start of Mars retrograde. 


After you register, you will get an email requesting your birth date, place and time, so Elaina can review your chart and give you personalized input. 

There are many paths to wisdom—astrology is just one! At the Sattva Wisdom Center, we always have a variety of classes intended to keep you feeling grounded, inspired, informed and empowered. 


We are excited about our new website! Take a look and find out what we have planned for the rest of the year. Lots of new events have been added.


We invite you to join us and can’t wait to welcome you!


With love and light,
