Dive into Jyotish...

About Vaughn Paul Manley, M.A.

Here's a snippet about me...and some pics

I've been a full time Vedic astrologer since 2004, and have been practicing professionally since 1992. I have a master’s degree in counseling psychology and am a certified teacher and tutor with the American College of Vedic Astrology (ACVA), and a contributing author for the ACVA Online Course. I have taught in the US, Japan, and in India at my Jyotish guru K.N. Rao’s school in New Delhi.

Articles I've written have been published in The Mountain Astrologer, Journal of AstrologyExpress Star Teller, CVA Journal, Zento Magazine, and Maui Vision Magazine, and I'm currently finishing my first book. 

I've spent 1 1/2 years in India studying with some well-known astrologers like K.N. Rao, who's the editor of his 
Journal of Astrology and founder of the largest astrology school in the worldand with R. Santhanam, translator of the classic text, Brihat Parashara Hora Shastra. While completing my master’s degree in psychology in Santa Fe, New Mexico I tutored for three years with Vedic scholar Dr. David Frawley, former president of ACVA, and author of Astrology of the Seers. Most recently I've mentored with Marc Boney, M.A. who's a brilliant student of K.N. Rao and colleague.

I've practiced yoga and meditation since 1977, and have studied Sanskrit since 1992, both in India and with the American Sanskrit Institute. I live in Maui, Hawaii and am happy to give private readings by phone or Zoom.

Accurate, heartfelt and a wonderful experience. Vaughn's readings are more than a reading. They gave me an insight to my souls journey, and brought ideas, notions and inspiration to the forefront of my consciousness. The information and the way he delivers it helped me understand certain patterns, sequences of events and my overall purpose more deeply. He is very professional, clear and operates with love and compassion for his fellow human beings. I highly recommend this empowering work.

It is rare to meet a person who embraces the solid experience blended with a practice full of wisdom, sensibility and desire to help. Jyotish is a sacred art and science and Vaughn acts as a guardian offering readings full of care and devotion.

My readings with Vaughn Paul Manley are so insightful and accurate. His predictions have always manifested within the time frame he gives. I still review and listen to my readings from years ago and still get messages that relate. Not only do I receive deep valuable readings I also get support in life choices and decisions. I am extremely grateful to have found him and would highly recommend anyone looking for an astrology reading to book with him!
