Photo of Cynthia Novak, Certified in Vedic AstrologyHello, My name is Cynthia Novak. Welcome to my site.

I am a professional Western and Vedic astrologer in the Dallas Texas area.  I would like to share some of my ideas, teachings and services with you.  You can access the Monthly Planner for daily astrology messages and a monthly Central ThemesYour Stars for a quarterly article based upon the movement of the planet and social issues of today. The message board is offered to help us all learn how to integrate Eastern and Western astrological techniques.  You can also learn how to have your own private reading of your chart.  I prefer to work either by phone or in person; but, I can also work with you by e-mail if you are outside of the United States.

Open the Monthly Planner for a daily message based upon the placement of the planets in the heavens on that day.  I use the Western zodiac and also reference information from Hindu or Vedic astrology in these.  You may print or download the entire month or check in daily to see what to expect.  Don’t miss the section “Central Themes” at the end.  That is where I give an overview for the month.

My intuitive gift is a reading from the heart.  Through the use of astrology, I am able to empathically connect with you, your potential for spiritual growth, and yes, your life patterns that block those.  A session with me will feel as if a part of your is talking to you through me.  I do not go into a trance, but I allow the chart to guide me to share insights and information with you on any subjects you request.  My goal is to help you to unearth the barriers to your progress, and happiness, illuminate them and offer suggestions to transform frustration into opportunity.

The Vedic chart is the form of astrology used in India.  While I am not a Hindu, I find that this structure shows the skeleton upon which the personality and life course is formed.  It shows our karmic tasks.  The knots, if you will, that we come into this life to unravel.  It also shows the dharma or gifts we have earned from previous lives.  The Vedic chart uses a series of master periods through the life.  A planet or one of the luminaries governs each one.  Each one will direct your life attention to a particular arena for growth.  By understanding the needs of the particular periods, we can work with, and not against the evolutionary flow of your life as you make the journey from birth to death.

Vedic astrology alone is a deterministic model.  Western astrology is a humanistic model.  Woven together I help you to accept the challenges that you were born with and work to shift the energy to break the yoke of karma. Perception is everything. We can work with your chart to help you perceive opportunity rather than obstacle.  It is just as important to be able to perceive your gifts.  For many of us, it is easier to see the obstacles than recognize our unique capabilities.  Through a mixture of Eastern wisdom and Western determination we can set a plan to move you through the current challenge onward.  Vedic astrology uses external power from gems mixed with mantras to help you move through challenging aspects and times.  My Western approach is to also suggest daily practice of affirmation, breathing tools and individually devised simple exercises to facilitate desired change.

I combine both Vedic and Western astrology for compatibility sessions.  I will include the chart of a loved one, along with your session if you like. There is no additional fee for the additional chart. It will be part of the session that you request.

In this web site, I would like to introduce the merger of Eastern, Vedic astrology with Western, Tropical astrology.  Both systems work and are equally valid.  Western astrology is wonderful when trying to assess personality.  Vedic is wonderful for understanding the underpinnings or basic nature beneath the actions, emotions and idiosyncrasies that we all have.  When combines we have a living, evolutionary model of human and spiritual understanding.

Please refer to my list of services to determine what type of session you would like and see the fees for each.  E-mail me directly with any questions that aren’t covered, or to begin the process to schedule your private chart or tutoring session. Feel free to call to schedule your appointment as soon as possible.
