Stefania Leone is one of the first contemporary neo-Vedic Astrologers in North America, here fulfilling her vision of incorporating this sacred ancient wisdom as a normal practice in the Western world. She sits on the Board of Directors of the American Council of Vedic Astrologers and has received honourary degrees from the Indian Council of Astrological Sciences. Stefania holds the title of Jyotish Medhashri, which recognizes her as being a leading pioneer in spreading the spiritual science of Vedic Astrology in the West.
Stefania’s professional repertoire is the result of over 30 years of experience as a teacher and life-long student in the field of astrology, metaphysics and spiritual sciences. In this lifetime she has traveled the globe, studied with countless Indian Masters and healers, deepening her practice and understanding of some of the most sacred and powerful knowledge available in our time. Her studies eventually guided her to her deepest passion and life calling, Jyotisha (Vedic Astrology). Currently, Stefania is recognized throughout many parts of the world as being an influential leader in her field.
Stefania had her first intense spiritual awakening at the age of seven, an experience that would shape and form what would become her life today. By the time she was ten, she began to meet Gurus, or teachers, who would show up in her life in the most unusual places, guiding her in the disciplines of healing and spirituality. She has participated in puja in the four sacred sites of the Hindu religion in the Himalayas, India, and was lucky enough to have a great master meet her at the base of the Ganges River, at 15,000 feet, an experience she holds dear to her heart. At the age of 23, Stefania graduated as one of the first Registered Massage Therapists in Canada. She received her first degree in Western Astrology at the age of 27, right after the birth of her second daughter. She spent the following 20 years in Whistler BC, raising five children, and deepening her practice of yoga, meditation, Ayurveda, astrology and healing. She opened the first Ayurvedic Spa in the Fairmont Chateau Whistler in 1998, which was rated one of the Top 10 Spas in North America, and was responsible for bringing many Indian Masters to Whistler during her time there. In most recent years, Stefania has been living in the Mayan lands, studying the Shaman traditions. In 2003, Stefania passed the level two exams from the Vedic Astrology from the America College of Vedic Astrologers. Her love for Jyotisha was born.
Jyotisha is a mystical language of light brought to us from the Vedas in India. Stefania will examine the various signs and planetary placements in your birth chart that unify the make-up of your own personal light frequency; your soul blueprint; your karmic code. Like going to a well for water, this language of light that comes to you in chart form, is the source or well of self-knowledge. It is a sister science of the Vedas and it gives you deep mystical information about your soul, your current life karma, and your personal relationship to the cosmos. Within your birth chart you will learn about energetic alchemical combinations that create specific patters that bring light into form, and create the unique Being called YOU. Key areas of your chart and life include relationships and love, sexuality, money and wealth, career, health and nutrition, children and family, past life and karmas. Jyotisha is referred to as the “Eyes of the Vedas”, because it helps you to see the truth.
“Jyotisha is the blueprint of your soul. When you come to this planet, you bring with you information about the journey of your soul; your strengths, your weaknesses, and the timing of the unfolding of your karma. Your Vedic astrology birth chart will give you this information. It is a sacred scientific mystical language that helps you understand yourself and your relationship to others, as well as the grande cosmos in which we live.” – Stefania Leone
