Paula’s readings are deep and detailed, revealing the essence of ourselves, sparking transformation, the catalyst for achieving our long-cherished desires.

“Paula, you have an amazing gift! In the audio portion of my reading you helped me understand my grander purpose here on earth – some of the spiritual and material gifts I’ve come in with, as well as some of the obstacles. The great thing is Paula – you took the time to let me know how I could ease things right now. I enjoyed your section on what to favor and avoid to make my experiences smoother and happier and get through the really challenging time I’m going through. You also gave me some Japa (remedial measures) that I’m practicing on my own and feeling much better because of doing these simple things. I really liked the 30 minutes follow up with you on the phone! It was great to connect and speak personally. I’m very grateful for the generous reading you’ve provided me with and the answers to so many unspoken questions.”

Basic Reading Package

“Our family had been going through a very challenging time. We contacted Paula for a Jyotish Reading for our children. It was very interesting to see the look of amazement on their faces as we reviewed the Vedic Astrology readings with them. Not only did Paula clearly describe the​ir nature and tendencies, she also revealed concerns and issues they hadn’t yet expressed. We also found that the readings brought our family closer as we got to know each other better.

My daughter’s jaw dropped as Paula outlined the kinds of challenging boyfriends she had experienced (as well as the kind she should look for in the future). She also described my daughter’s particularly rough 3-year university experience, what she was going through now, and let us know when the situation may improve for her.

My son was very taken with Paula’s humorous approach to typical teenage angst issues. Her description of his character and tendencies were delightfully and accurately outlined. Several suggestions for career and educational choices were made that felt very in tune with his interests and hobbies.

We were so impressed with Paula’s readings that we ordered two additional Basic Readings for ourselves, as well as two Prashna Readings about our parents’ health issues.

What is required for a Basic Reading

  • Birth time – exact as possible – am/pm
  • Location – city, province, (state)country of birth
  • Whether daylight savings was in effect at time of birth
Where can I get my birth data?
  •   Hospital records – try to get the vault records
  •   Reliable sources like mom and family members
  •   Other family members may be more reliable than ageing parent(s) memory 
I don’t know my birth time details – can a chart still be drawn up for me?

A birth chart can still be drawn up – even if you don’t know your exact birth time, so don’t worry.  You’d select a Prashna Reading.

(A special reading called a Prashna Reading is drawn up in this instance.  The chart is valid to read and refer back to for about a year. )
