Q) Tell us something about your venture Tender Wisdom
Medha: Tender Wisdom was a name suggested to me years ago, by someone very close. It came out of a suggestion I got regarding if I were to ever start a company or if I were to ever have a brand of my own and what would it be called. The person who suggested it had a knack for offering names to a lot of people.
This happened about 15 years ago when I was still pretty much a kid, with no idea what business I was going to do. But I feel like the power of the name was so much that it just stuck with me and it made me resonate with myself.
The essence of a person just remains with that person from the very beginning and I’ve seen this for myself because I believe that the core and soil that we all need remains with us.
Tender Wisdom resonated then and I think it still resonates with me and I am sure it will continue to resonate with me for years to come.
I’m very soft-spoken and I always put my point forward in a very gentle but wise manner. I think that this is a quality I carried from childhood, forward till now and I feel like now I’m doing astrology consultations for people which is all about cosmic wisdom; it’s not my wisdom, it’s just the wisdom that the cosmos gives us.
I think I say things very gently to people without scaring them but just being wise. This is still staying with me and works well for me because of the work I do. That’s how Tender Wisdom started and this is where I am now.
Q) What is it like to be a Vedic Astrology Teacher?
Medha: It’s joyful because I’m thrilled to be doing what I’m doing and I think I’m extremely lucky and privileged to be able to wake up every day and do something I adore.
Despite the challenges that today’s age is facing, Vedic astrology is still something that’s catching up with the world.
I know the world is inclined toward astrology in a very pop culture manner. All thanks to social media because everybody’s put these pop culture words out there. The Vedic astrologer is on a different planet altogether because it has a lot of maths, to begin with, so no matter how pop culture-ish a Vedic astrologer can sound, at the end of the day we’re just doing a lot of numbers.
As glamorous as it may seem from the outside, I think it’s a lot of hard work on the inside. On some days I feel that it’s pretty gruesome on my energy levels also because, daily, I’m just speaking to people who have some issues; it’s almost like being a therapist.
It’s an intense profession because you’re dealing with real people and their real highs and lows. It can impact you a lot as much as you’re impacting other people.
For me, it’s been a humbling journey being a Vedic astrologer, but the whole thing comes with a lot of responsibilities so I will quote Spider-Man’s movie here- “With great power comes great responsibility”.
Q) What is it like to be an Empowerment and Transformation Coach?
Medha: As I mentioned earlier, the work that I do is very intense because I come across a lot of people who are not sure about the direction in which they’re going. It could also be because of issues like the loss of a family member or even self-esteem. These sensitive things leave a large impact on people.
Being that coach for them is equally intense because I have to explain the situation and give them a solution. I remember this quote from a renowned author, Simon Sinek where he says that in a bookstore we have a huge section for self-help but we never have a section for helping others.
That is very important because as a society we’ve never been taught about how to help somebody. Thanks to astrology because that’s been my base and it allows me to look very deeply into the person to find out what their journey has been like. This way I can empower them because I can see where they are right now.
The journey simplifies when you go to an astrologer because you put your horoscope in front and the astrologer will be able to point out exactly what you’re feeling.
It will give you a lot of comfort because it’s a stranger saying things to you that you’re going through. I think this also gives me an advantage as an empowerment coach as a healer because I’m able to hit the nail on the head and gain their trust.
The whole point of being an empowerment coach is figuring out and helping people find their true purpose in life. I believe in the core intelligence of people because I already know who they are, where they want to be, and what decisions they have to make.
Once they feel seen, they feel empowered and they slowly work on their self-esteem and I work on their issues.
I guide them in the right direction and after that, they automatically pick themselves up and they’re ready to go in the right direction. They will not feel lost because they will find the true purpose of their lives. They will get the feeling that they have a purpose and that is the empowering part at the end!
Q) What is something that you admire the most in your profession?
Medha: It is an extremely transformative process for me because I am talking to strangers daily and helping them out through a horoscope. This way, I am resonating with everything that’s being said and it becomes very humbling for me.
People realize that there is a personal power around but I think my journey as an astrologer has been extremely transformative because I have got constant reminders that we’re all beautifully connected and we’re all taking care of each other. I’ve seen such magical stories because every client I’ve spoken to has something great to offer.
I have had clients from all walks of life, whether they’re privileged, celebrities, politicians, or anyone in the industry, it didn’t matter to me because they all have some concerns. You don’t have a choice in life, it has to be a very simple humble approach else it is not going to be nice.
No matter how much we are seeking our desires, the whole journey comes about in a circle because the learning is in your path. I would also like to quote Jim Terry who said in one of his interviews that, “I wish everybody gets money and fame in this world; so much that they cannot fathom how much they’ve got. This will make you realize that these things are not the answer to happiness in your life.”
I have seen this from experience that no matter who it is, they’re all seeking something, and that seeking only ends when you walk through the spiritual path.
- I’m not saying you need to be a monk but it’s about making simpler, softer, and tender choices in life that are leading you on a spiritual path. I think that’s been the most amazing part of my journey because I am very privileged in so many ways.
