Counselling with Vedic Astrology

astrology-2We use astrology to provide valuable advice that you can use as guidance.We do NOT to make predictions. We provide two kinds of services: ‘Advice for Decision Making’, and ‘Guidance for Problem Solving’. What is the difference?

When you want to find a suitable marriage or life partner; when you want to find the kind of work or study that would really suit your nature; or when you have to make a choice in an important situation, you can use our advice on decision-making.

However, when you want to overcome a problem that is recurring, first you need to have a clear diagnosis. Only thereafter you can formulate your strategy and tactics for overcoming it.

To know more, we invite you to read our article:

How to take our Advice or Guidance

You have to provide the birth details: date, time (standard time) and place (nearest city) of birth, along with a photograph (scanned copy) for all the persons concerned.

Further, AstroBkto provide specific guidance you have to give all the details, like: What exactly you want; what you have tried or done so far; what happened; what options you are considering now and why; etc.

Note: We only provide advice or guidance and NOT forecasts or predictions from your horoscope.
Astrology has a scientific basis, but the judgement is largely an art that relies on intuition. We analyse your horoscope, but we are not too analytical about the deductions since we prefer the insight we get through intuition.

The Fees

For advice in decision making the fee is US $ 50 or Rs. 3,500. For guidance for problem solving the cost is US $ 100 or Rs. 6,500. There is a concessional charge of Rs. 1,000/- only (for one session) for the associates of Darshana Centre and for persons who visit my office in Baroda personally.

However, before you make payment, please state your problem or situation and check (on email, if we can accept your case and what charges may be appropriate. The counselling will begin after the fees are paid. For mode of payment, ask for details.

Business & Professional Counselling with EKS

EKSSpiralEKS stands for Energy-Cybernetic-Strategy. It is a holistic approach for growing your business or profession in an ‘open economy’ system. This method was originally devised by Wolfgang Mewes of Frankfurt, Germany, and it has very useful applications for Entrepreneurs, Decision-Making Executives and Professionals.

In modern times everything is changing rapidly. There is competition everywhere. Businesses and jobs have become insecure. And the methods of conventional management are unable to provide reliable solutions. This situation is further compounded by the fact that there is an overload of information and you are continuously distracted by alternatives. Under such conditions how should you conduct yourself so that you can have sure growth for your enterprise?

If these are your questions our guidance will certainly help:

  • How can I and my team remain ‘always wanted’ and never become redundant?
  • How can I make only the relevant knowledge and information gravitate towards me automatically so that I am not overwhelmed with choices and details?
  • In any situation, how can I recognize my true options and get them to work for me?
  • When I am in a stuck situation, what should I do to get out of it?
  • How can I generate my long-term competitive advantage so that I don’t have to wander around aimlessly or keep on reacting to other people’s moves?

Freedom & Contentment, and how to experience them


The spiritual tradition in ancient India talks in terms of karma and dharma. When you act with personal or selfish motives you generate some imbalance, which is called karma. When you do what is proper and act without personal motives you generate balance and harmony, which is called dharma. Freedom and contentment are built on the foundation of Dharma.

True freedom and contentment are inner-life attainments. And to experience them you have to make some adjustments in your attitude and assumptions according to the rules of dharma or proper living. What are these changes and how can you make them? To know more, click here:

 True Message of Karma

Astrology-1Everything we do has its consequences. Even when we are free to act, once we have acted we are not free from the consequences of our actions. The consequences are as per the Law of Karma. Whenever we are inappropriate or unjust, we incur a debt which has to be paid up. However, the consequences happen in time, and they may take a long time before they arise. This ‘time lag’ deceives us into thinking that we have escaped the consequences. But the accounts are kept in nature’s archives and nobody escapes anything! Let us try to understand the implications of this message.

Most of our ‘present life events’ are the results of our past karma. Hence, we are born with certain predisposition, and they make most of our decisions from the subconscious level. In other words, some things have already happened at the inner level and the events that are arising are like consequences that are arriving. So, here we can only make some cosmetic changes.

However, there are many things that are still in the making. Hence, they are not fully decided; they exist as mere possibilities. We do not arrive at them, but we have to make our personal effort to realize them.

At the same time we have to work in an external environment or world. But the world has also decided some things and it is working on some possibilities. Hence, some events are arriving; some things may or may not happen; and there is always the unexpected.

The issue before us is that how or where we fit into the scheme of things in the world is not decided! What happens to us or what we are able to achieve will depend on our present karma – on how we apply ourselves; on the choices we make; and on the follow up through our actions. Hence, to succeed we have to do two things correctly: Work on something where we have some personal advantage over others; and try to do what the external environment is trying to bring out. If we go against a trend, we can still lose in spite of our best efforts.

The issue before us is that where do we fit in a world where things are not yet finalized! What we get or what we are able to achieve will depend on our present karma – on how we apply ourselves; on the options we consider and the choices we make; and lastly, on our follow up through actions. To succeed we have to do two things correctly: Work on something where we have some personal advantage over others; and take up something that is trying to happen in the present environment. If we go for things where we do not have any advantage or if we go against the trend, we can still lose in spite of our best efforts.

Hence, the real message of karma is that we PARTICIPATE in the making of events. When we align properly to what is happening, we get success easily. When we go against the trend, we have to work harder and still we can be unsuccessful. The choice is ours and what happens will be according to what we have chosen. So, are we going to act intelligently and make good use our present karma or are we going to follow our predispositions and experience the consequence of our past karma?

Some Correspondence:

A query: Can the statement, “Work on something where we have some personal advantage over others…” be changed to indicate something like “one needs to do what he likes to do and is good at and then do it in the best possible way”. Why compare with others?

Our Reply: The world is not as we would like it to be. To succeed in the world first we have to see everything from the other (not our) point of view. Then we can know what we really have to do to solve our problems or get the results we want.
There is competition; others have alternatives; so we have to try and get in where we can do something they need better than others.
Our personal likes come in after we have the work. Then also, we will have to do what is required in the situation and not what we want! It is perpetual slavery, but it is the price we have to pay for our appetite for more money. In the business world there is a lot of have-to-do.
