La Petite Mortisode No. 17 - Astrology

I’m very excited to share with you a conversation I had about astrology. Astrology, like tarot, is another old tradition that still exists in modern day. How can astrology fit into modern life? In this episode, I interview Sara Hawthorne, a vedic astrologer based in Florida, and we talk about eastern vs. western astrology, implications for modern life, and how death can show up in your birth chart! I also share how often astrology shows up at end of life….it’s quite often a surprise to a dying person’s loved ones!

Happy Thanksgiving to all of our wonderful listeners. We hope your holiday is filled with gratitude and love.



You can email Sara directly at for a complimentary rising sign report. Please include in your email the exact time, place, and date of your birth.

This includes information regarding your rising sign, Sun sign, and Moon sign. The report also discusses the most favorable planets in your chart and simple ways you can strengthen those planets for even better results in life through color and gemstone therapy.

It also includes information on what planets you should NOT strengthen and what you can do to mitigate the negative effects these planets have on your life. The report will also indicate what your main period and sub period planets are (we can see if it happens to be Rahu) and what is best for the person to focus his or her attention on at the present time --  whether it be health, career, or relationships.

Please include in your email the exact time, place, and date of your birth.

Some information about Sara:

I became interested in Vedic Astrology at a very young age through my father, David Hawthorne (Jyotish Bhanu & Jyotish Acharya) who began studying Astrology long before I was born. I can remember him telling me when I was going through particularly rough periods of time, exactly when things would get better and he was always right!

After receiving a degree in Theatre Arts from the University of Iowa and a short three year stint as an actress in Los Angeles, I discovered performing was not my purpose in life, but rather Vedic Astrology.

Over the years, I have studied the connection between the transit of planets and the events in my own life. I have also learned the importance of doing the planetary remedies for my own chart, for smoother sailing in life.

On September 23rd 2016 I was conferred the honorary title of Jyotish Saraswati by SIHA (Systems’ Institute of Hindu Astrology) and by Professor V.K. Choudhry of Gurgaon, India (the developer of the Systems' Approach to Interpreting Horoscopes).

I look forward to continuing my lifelong educational journey of the Systems’ Approach to Vedic Astrology and providing those who seek this knowledge the best service I can.
