What is Astrology?
Astrology is a range of divinatory practices which have been around since the 18th century. These practices can help to discern information about human affairs and terrestrial events by studying the apparent positions of the planets. Most of us love to learn about ourselves! Astrology does just that - we have different signs and are affected by different planets at different times. We at Playa Negra Yoga love Astrology. We host moon ceremonies nearly every new and full moon. We are happy to announce our affiliation with Maia Velarde and her insightful readings.
Readings with Maia
Maia was raised in Playa Negra Costa Rica. She always had a keen interest in Astrology. In 2023, she began officially studying Astrology and is now providing insightful readings.
Natal Chart Reading
What is a Natal Chart?
A Natal Chart is your own personal map that shows the positions of the planets at the exact time of your birth. This chart is said to be able to connect you to a deeper sense of yourself, through the exploration o your plants, houses and signs that rule your natal chart. Through this reading you can see your upbringing, talents, challenges and receive insight as to what your inner work or growing edge is.
Natal Chart Reading with Transits
When a planet moves through the sky, it affects the other planets in your natal chart. This is called a transit. Just like how a moving picture in a movie changes the story, transits can change your life and the way you feel. This reading will help you harness the current energy available according to the aspects and alignments that your natal chart exhibits.
The different phases of the moon can provide powerful insight into our lives.
