Your Ayurvedic Type: Pitta Dosha
The Characteristics of Pitta Dosha
Your Ayurvedic type is based on a complex blend of qualities. If you are Pitta dominant, you may notice the following characteristics in yourself
To understand your Ayurvedic type or constitution you need to know about the doshas.
What is Your Ayurvedic Type?
The Ayurvedic Doshas are Vata, Pitta and Kapha
All of us are a blend of doshas, with one dosha dominant, and a secondary dosha supporting that.
Very few people are dominated by just one dosha, and even fewer are a balance of all three.
A combination of doshas is used to describe your prakruti. Your Ayurvedic prakruti would be Pitta dominant if you notice most of these qualities in yourself
As an example you may be Pitta dominant with Vata the next strongest influence, and so your prakruti would be Pitta/Vata
The best way to get a proper analysis is by seeing a qualified Ayurvedic practitioner.
However, you can also take an online quiz to get a good idea.

What Is A Birth Chart?
The Mechanics of The Chart
Your birth chart (or natal chart) is a map of the heaven’s, relative to the time and place that you were born. This map shows areas of strength and opportunity, as well as weakness and challenge. Your birth chart is a powerful tool which can also show how things are likely to unfold through time, as well as what is happening for you at the moment.
How Does It work?
Let’s have a look at a chart to get a sense of what all the lines and symbols mean.
The wheel running around the outside represents the circle of The Zodiac, which allows us to position exactly in the sky where each planet was when you were born. The Zodiac is an imaginary band that is projected out into space from Earth. It is a wonderful tool, because it allows us to know where all the bodies in our solar system are, relative to us.
Astrologers use the chart to create a snapshot of the moment you draw your first breath, mapping the position of the planets back down to earth to make it exactly relative to the time and place of your birth. This then becomes your unique map, or blueprint, and can guide you throughout your life. READ MORE >>
