Anda #8 - August 26, 2023
Jyotish! Art! Design! Music! Dance! Texts! Links to what I'm seeing, hearing, tasting, and reading. "Anda" means "egg" in Sanskrit. Andas are vibrant zones of creative generation.
Devamadhu Keefe of Sahaya Sacred Arts offers LGBTQIA+ informed Vedic astrology and sacred art for healing, empowerment, and transformation. Devamadhu’s readings are for anyone who wants to discover more about their natural capacities, patterns of relating to others, and personal or professional goals. But if you fear being unseen and unsupported during a reading due to the biases and privilege of traditions and/or astrologers, then Devamadhu’s got you covered. Sit back and relax!
