Testimonials 2018

Hello David,

I just wanted to thank you for the excellent reading. While I have had Vedic astrology readings before, I have never had one as in-depth, thoughtful and helpful as yours. I very much appreciate the time and attention you put into the reading and will be starting the remedies shortly. Thank you again – it is very appreciated!   Wishing you the very best,  Gabe K.


Wow!! What an insightful & powerful reading for me to hear- I feel like I have finally been “seen”!! This is probably one of the most important things I could have done for myself by finding you!! You are truly amazing!! Your clear & direct explanation of things has completely opened my eyes!! I really can’t thank you enough!!  Megan G.

David,  Thank you so much for the insightful reading today and very glad that you continue to help others with your special gifts.  Wish I had meet you 30 years back with this road map and guidance but excited as I move forward. Will certainly take time to listen to my reading again and will start with the remedies recommended along with reading your newsletter..  Thank you again and I look to the future by living fully and authentically in the present moment.   Karen D.



Dear J.    As for S., there should be some relief for her on November 1st and more relief after December 15th.   The difficulties have been since November 2014, when Saturn entered her 6th house of conflict, mental tension, financial and health issues.   David Hawthorne


Dear David —  S. got a new job today.  She begins November the 1st.   You mentioned this date in your last email to me.  David, thanks for your support. From the bottom of my heart.    With gratitude, J.


Hello dear David, Few years ago you did a life  reading chart for me and my family. And it was so helpful for us, you changed my life without even trying, and I don’t think I could ever tell you how much you mean to me.   I’m very much thankful to you,   Parvaneh S.


Namaskar David,   First and foremost many thanks for your time and efforts to read my horoscope. The incidents that occurred were right spot on based on the non-favorable time as you explained.   Again, thank you for your time and it’s always a great talking with you,  Regards, Sunil K.


Good morning David,

Thank you for the information and the advice. I can tell you have years of wisdom as every suggestion hits so close to home. M. and I watched our compatibility video together and we were quite pleased with the results. It really brought us closer together and your words of wisdom on relationships were beautifully spoken. The reading was so spot on that it even blew her away (she’s very skeptical of most things and not easily impressed).    Jonathan B.


Thank you David,

Nora dropped in to me yesterday. She is very impressed with the accuracy of the reading you did for Kate. Best regards,  Patrick S.


Hi David,

My nephew raved about you….Thank you sooooo much for your readings.  You are a gifted soul and it is a blessing to have a connection with you.    Susan T.


Dear David,

Thank you so much for the amazing Jyotish readings, Graham and I feel so grateful for the guidance. They are the most accurate Jyotish reading’s we have received and we will be sending our final questions through soon.   Brooke H.


Good morning Sir,

I am so pleased and thankful to have received my reading and am looking forward to implementing your recommendations as discussed in the videos. Just as I was recommended by a very good friend of mine, I have now recommended your services to my elderly mother who is very interested in receiving the same service provided to me.    Desirine W.



I have gone thru the video and  must say that it is more than 100 percent correct in all respects.  I will follow your advice regarding puja and gems and manner of dealing with other people which you  have so  kindly and sincerely advised me.   Mukesh N.


Respected David,

Don’t know how to express my gratitude. I am at loss of words.  Method used to explain my birth chart’s basic and current transit is simple, excellent and easy to comprehend. For a moment I felt like I was attending classroom lecture at my school. At this juncture I would like to take a bow and send my good wishes.  Wishing you good luck and good health,     Vishu


Hi David,

I am completely wowed by the reading and its accuracy.   I could go on and on with the details of how accurate   This transit that I am in has brought intensity and started exactly when you said in December.   I am very fascinated by this new system and would like suggestions of what to read next.  Many blessings,   Amrita S.



I’ve really enjoyed the readings you have done for Emilia and Dustin.    Thank you,   Charlene M.


Hello David,

I wish I could express better how grateful I am for the video you sent.  It has helped me understand why things have been so difficult this year.  I was at the stage of being constantly on alert, wondering what the next disaster was going to be!!  I’ve been feeling a bit like the proverbial ‘punching bag’ lately 🙁   I am so relieved to know that this transit is nearing an end and grateful for the heads up about the last hit of it in August, so I can be a little prepared for it….or at least understand what’s going on.   The Vedic astrology makes far more sense to me than the other astrology charts I’ve had done…..and your explanations are very easy to understand 🙂   I’m sending you a big THANK YOU and a cyber hug for taking the time to make the video for me.  It really has helped ease the strain I’ve been feeling 🙂   Kind regards,   Lynne A


Dear David:

Thank you for your supremely brilliant analyses and everything you have done for us.   PS I love my Kavach from you! It adds so much support of nature to life, especially with contributing to healing energies.   Love,  Will D.


Hi David

Amazing!! What a great gift to have.  I feel very validated in my life and choices I have made.  Thank you,   Aundrea T.


David 🙂   Your reading has already provided me huge relief!!!    I really needed to know that I wasn’t going crazy and something big had to be happening in order for all these tough things to be occurring simultaneously. It’s awesome to know that the something big is the transit of Saturn in my chart. It’s also great to know when it started and what I need to do to correct its influence, Jupiter’s influence and all the other tough influences on my chart. I could feel the passion in your reading. The knowledge hit me at a level deeper than my surface intellect. I am truly touched, moved and inspired by this wisdom and the compassion.  As I’m working on my chart and receiving the other benefits from the reading I’ll be sure to let people know where I went to receive help!!!!!    Thanks so much, I’m convinced that these corrections will help me and my family!  Much love and respect,   Antwan P.


Dear David,

I am involved in all of the fields you mentioned in the first paragraph. Everything else you say also describes my life path, and my personality really accurately.   Ellie


Greetings David,

Thank you very much for the reading. Indeed, I greatly value your candid – non-sugar-coated style. Everything you shared has been insightful, empowering, and makes sense. I am truly grateful to be blessed by your gifts, and empowered by your suggestions to balance all unkind influences in my life.  P.S. – I am going to invite my business partners to get readings too, and my girlfriend too. If you don’t mind I’d like to share your email with them. Love, Light, & Laughs  Graham


Dear David – Just a note to thank you again for your reading on Thursday afternoon, and for all the time and information you shared with me. I learned so much, and, from the files you sent, I know I have just scratched the surface! I so appreciate your openness and willingness to give so much of what you have and know. Yours with deep gratitude,    Katherine


Dear Dave,

Email before the reading:

I have been undergoing testing for leukemia / lymphoma. I had a bone marrow biopsy done last week and we are waiting results. This is a very challenging for our family. I appreciate any insight you can give us in terms of my health and our future as a family.

Email after the reading:

I have been looking forward to writing you! My husband and I went into the hospital for the results and they said that the abnormal cells are not enough to be considered lymphoma. We were astonished and could not believe that you had already mentioned a possible improvement in my health issues. We have listened to your recordings several times and have started to do some of the remedial practices you suggested. I would really like to share my experience with the reading you gave me and give my testimonial. You are so gifted and you have a generous heart. We are so indebted to you for sharing all of this with us and for giving us all this hope.     Angelic S.


Dear David

I want to let you know that you made a prediction in the reading about last August through November, where my chart had 100% of dark clouds on many of my planets, as nothing was moving.  Last Sept 6th, I took a terrible fall and broke my ankle very badly.  I was bedridden for months and not able to put any weight on the leg til December.   I had 6 months of Physical Therapy and thankfully, by May I was able to walk again without a limp.  I thought it was pretty darn good that you predicted that.  Jan B.


Hi David…sorry for the delay…I just wanted to say thanks for getting to my question and chart, despite your heavy duty schedule.  It helped my psychology a lot.  Sue D.

Dear David:

Thank you so much for this, it has helped me a lot. It explains many circumstances I have gone through and very informative and interesting. I have ordered the Special Power Kavach and look forward to receiving it.    Nandini


David, Thank you.

I very much appreciate your kindness in offering your assessment.   We continue to move through these karmas day by day.  The knowledge and experience of the Vedic tradition and the insight of Systems’ Approach has become the touchstone of our existence.  These gifts continue to enrich and sustain us through our lives.   Larry C.


Dear David,

Yes, I received it and played it twice. Then Cheryl and I both played it again and she downloaded it onto a memory stick only last night.  Cheryl was delighted to receive it and as always, it’s absolutely spot on. Thank you so very much.   Namaste   Elizabeth


Dear David,

Thank you so much for the file you sent me answering my questions!  Your advice and kind words are so wise and filled with true care. I appreciate them so much.  With deepest gratitude,   Angelica


Dear David,

Thanks so much for the readings. They are very helpful!  You’ve done so much for us, we really appreciate it…especially now!  Tiffany is also very appreciative and thanks you greatly, for the update and the moving dates.   I’ve been saying to myself that things started getting bad Dec. 17 of last year, and you point out the transit problem beginning at Dec. 15.  Can’t get any closer than that!  Your weekly columns have been very helpful in giving perspective, and this reading is also.   John B.


Hi David,

Just a quick note of appreciation for the reading that you did last week. I just completed listening to it, slowly, with lots of backing up to hear it again, and writing detailed, copious notes. You have given me everything I need to take care of the jyotish influences in my life. I did not pay sufficient attention to your instructions after the last reading. But I’ve got lots of afflictions and need lots of remedies and propitiations and I won’t make the same mistakes again.  I am blown away by the precise accuracy of your comments. Thanks again, David   Tom K.


Dear David,

I cannot thank you enough for Emiliana’s reading. I literally cried my eyes out listening to you say all these things about my daughter because they touch me so deeply in a beautiful way.    It seems like after your reading so much of what I’ve been experiencing in my life spiritually makes so much sense.  Most grateful!   Angelica S.


Hello, David,

I cannot thank you enough for the insightful readings.  It was a completely different experience for Steve and for me to hear (Greg’s) chart explained with clarity and simplicity, and with a solutions approach, having had several readings prior.  I was very touched and inspired by the knowledge you shared as well.   The best news is that Greg was deeply relieved and hopeful about his life after hearing the reading the first time.  After hearing it the second time, he was again greatly uplifted and is beginning to meditate again.  A ray of light in his upward climb.  The kavach arrived today and he is looking forward to wearing it.    Again, please know how grateful we are.    Kindly,  Mary Ann


Dear David,

Thank you so much for a truly awesome afternoon. Lots to take in but at least I have started the journey.  I feel so grateful for having had the opportunity of meeting you. I actually feel lighter already.  I think it is “knowledge is power.” I have better understanding of what is going on and how to make improvements. Many thanks also for all the extras you shared with me.   Best wishes, Trish O.


Dear David, I want to thank you for all of the good that you do for our TM family. Your insights and knowledge of Joytish helps us all to walk thru the herds of sleeping elephants with dignity and grace.    Jai Guru Dev — Greg and Jan


Dear David:

Thank you for another year of remarkably accurate warnings of dangers (and opportunities) that have not yet come. Every week you have allowed me and all of your readers to take precautions and take advantage of your beautiful knowledge. I thank you and wish you all health and bliss in 2018.    With warmest regards,  Nick K.


Dear David,

I received the charts for both of us.  They are so amazing and so helpful!   James was really grateful to have this knowledge to guide him forward.  The year pattern of the Sun information is invaluable. (as is all the information you shared).  He is graduating from college in May and wasn’t sure about his path forward.  This information is so helpful.   I hope know that our gratitude and appreciation are with you. Ann P.


Just went through the readings. Thank you again – very insightful. Looking forward to my kavach when it comes from India.  Really appreciate your insights.  Anjali S.


Hi David,

This past week, I revisited my audio reading  from almost 5 years ago. It continues to surprise, guide, and reassure me throughout the years, and I just wanted to say thank you. Thanks for your energy and enlightenment and look forward to your weekly horoscopes. Sincerely, Carly


Hi David,

I was just listening to the last chart reading you sent to me back in 5/2016.  Everything that you said then and moving into the present day has been dead-on accurate!  Renae L.


Dear David,

Thank you so much for the reading. I am finding it very helpful.  You are absolutely right that I encounter enemies, opposition, and other problems.  Thanks for your assistance. I will use your services again.  Blessings,  deTraci R.


My kavach changed my life…it went from being torturous to calm and peaceful.   Lizzy H.


Hi David, I have deep gratitude for the knowledge you have shared with me in the past and truly admire your character and work.. Matt Z.


David…….I just listened to my file.   You are truly amazing !!  In Gratitude !!!    Pamela C.


Dear David,

Wanted to give you an update on my son’s progress since your reading last fall. Things worked out pretty much how you said – he got accepted at the master’s program and was also able to get a paid job while doing his research. They are also paying for his school.  Thank you for your help and encouragement!   Sonya DJ


Dear David:

Just an impulse from the heart. Happiness for those who are virtuous. I kind of reflect on the dark attitude of the church toward astrology and see the light of what you have been doing as a godsend, in some respect, admirable.   Peace,    Daniel K.



Thank you so much for taking the time to complete my reading. So many things resonated with me and I look forward to listening to them again in a week or so.  Charity R.


Dear Mr. Hawthorne,

Thank you for this most honest reading. I feel like for the first time there is someone who was willing to read my chart with integrity and directness. I could feel your words connect with my soul. So much information to digest.   Dolly P.



I received videos of the reading I’d requested and they are, as always, absolutely excellent! Thank you for the great service!      David G.


Dear David:

I truly cannot thank you enough for this insightful reading!!!. It literally brought me to tears to see the incredible power of Vedic Astrology once again and how everything can be pieced together and make so much more sense. The experience provides peace and hope 🙂  Angelica


Dear David

Amanda has been non-stop talking about her reading. She gained a tremendous amount of knowledge from her time spent with you.  Many things have become clearer to her and I believe she feels she is in the right place for her life’s journey.  Thank you .  Arthur R.



I must say, I learned more from listening to your report than I do reading astrology books.  I have attached a few observations so that you can see how spot on you are.  I loved the way you could progress the transits with the software.   Thanks for a very insightful reading!  Peace my friend, David S. M., PhD, CPA


Here is an email I received in April 2018:

Subject: General Election for Malaysia

Hi David,    Our general election date i.e. 9th May has just been announced today. It is going to be the closest and most bitter fight ever with Dr Mahathir, our previous Prime Minister leading the opposition coalition at 92 years of age!!    How about you give a brief reading on how likely there will be a change of Government and if there will be chaos should the opposition wins? We gained independence from the British on the 31st August 1957 at 9.30am.


Assuming the birth data you gave me is correct, this gives the Virgo rising sign at 28:35 degrees.   The country is in the Saturn sub period until January 2020.   Saturn is a functional malefic planet for this chart and represents debts, disputes, enemies and litigation.   Natal Saturn afflicts Sun, ruling the government in the 12th house of losses; so there is likely losses for the current government during this time.   On May 9th, transit Sun, ruling losses, will be afflicting transit Jupiter, ruling property and domestic peace —  and the 8th house of setbacks and obstructions, and 2nd house of wealth and status – so this also indicates losses for the ruling party.


I just want to let you know that the opposition coalition has won a decided victory over the 61 years-old Government. The transition was also very smooth without any chaos at all.  Everybody in our country is rejoicing this change because the previous Govt was extremely corrupted.


Dear David:

Thank you so much, what a wonderful reading, I feel blessed!   You have amazing knowledge, wisdom and compassion. I can see the god in you, as we say.  And I really appreciate the extra effort you made for me and extra time.   Dion O.


Hi David, thanks to you for checking for the best Wednesday  to do my other eye, it all went well w/ your last info for my other eye. Your friend, Michele, JGD


Happy Father’s Day, David. May you be showered with many many blessings. You serve as our father to help guide us on this turbulent Journey. I appreciate your presence very very much….Mary Jane K.


David, As you had mentioned about current planetary transit is bad for my husband and children, my husband who is in good health suffered a major heart attack this past Wednesday. Fortunately he got treated in time and now at home.  Neeti S.


Good evening David, first I want to thank you for the reading. It blew my mind and made so much sense! It was like listening to someone talk about me that knew me for years. Maureen T.M.


David,   The reading you did for me brings a lot of relief. Can’t thank you enough. The chart explains so much!  Thank you again, David. Jennifer H.


Hi David,

In November 2016, I was referred to you by N.G. and took your help (in horoscope reading and mystical pendant). This month, I found a new job with better compensation. I want say thanks for your help and advice. Lately, I am recovering my financial losses from stock market, too.  Thanks. Jeewan R.


Dear David,

Thank YOU so very much for your reading and the generosity of your time. I watched all files last night and the reading is so very helpful. You are so right on everything. The advice is invaluable.  I am also going to pay much closer attention to the remedies. I am absolutely going to study systems approach in much more detail and would love to add it to my practice.  Exciting. I just love the science and art of Systems’ Approach!  Wishing you health and happiness always !   Warmly,  Kathy



I am just BLOWN AWAY by that reading.  I’m almost done with the third video and have paused to ask you for ALL of those chants, recitations.  I took notes on the remedies.  Also, PLEASE DO send me any study material on Jyotish.   Federick B.



I have had divorce, bankruptcy, and false allegations toward me. (As you indicated during the reading.)

It is amazing how this stuff works. I ordered a Kavach. I also got some gemstones. I ordered your course and I am studying it, and I also have Parashara’s Light for mac.  I love to hear about the success stories of the Kavach. Quite interesting…  Mario L.


Dear David

I love how you work with everyone and speak with so much love and kindness in your voice, you are such a divine inspiration! I feel very excited about this and woke this morning with making more and more sense of it and a feeling of joy. Knowledge certainly is empowering and joyful — I lay in my bed looking up at the planets and stars as I used to do as a child!  I now make my merry way through my life with eyes wider open. Thank you ?   Warmest wishes, Suzy


Dear David,

Thank you so much for the reading! It was definitely an eye opening and shocking experience. Thank you so much!  I also ordered the Kavach just now.  Thank you again for taking the time to do my reading for me. It was such a pleasure to have it done 🙂   Karen B.


Dear David,

I watched all five videos and am amazed.  All your observations are accurate. I am humbled to have had a reading from you and look forward to learning the Systems Approach from you.   I will have additional readings and will obtain additional kavach from you.  I am most interested in serving my patients with the additional insight of Jyotish.  Warm regards, namaste, om shanti, shanti, shanti,   Michael


Case Study:

I did a video reading for this client — and sent it to him. I was very strong about him having an afflicted Sun and badly placed Moon, which indicated a problem with his heart.

Here is his email to me after he watched the video files:

“Hi David, Spot on.  Hopefully the stent implanted 9 days ago will be my first and last.   Thanks.  Mark M.”


Thank you David for your very thorough reading and taking the time to explain everything in such detail.  I am very appreciative. Ellen T.


Dear David,

I am completely filled with love and joy about my reading.   Everything about the reading rang true for my soul.  Thank you, thank you, thank you.  Love, love, and more love,   Lynn S.



I look forward to getting my liferreading from you. My husband was very impressed and happy with the life reading he received from you.  Thanks,   Sanay G.


Dear David,

Since your last reading, one year has passed and I am ready to learn about the next one ?.  I have listened to it many times and every time I am able to integrate another nuance.  I’m so grateful for your support!  Looking forward to hearing your updates. Wishing you all the best and sending you special greetings from Zurich, Carmela S.


Hi David,

Many thanks for the reading. You are amazing at what you do. The past year was so helpful with your reading I really appreciate all the work that goes into it.   I will listen again, download and study in greater detail. I also think learning the Ayurvedic astrology will be really helpful. I really have got a lot from this and will re listen shortly.  Big big big mega thanks and blessings for you this year and Christmas to come. Louisa


Dear David,

I enjoyed your reading a lot. Very accurate, I have been shooting arrows aimlessly for some time now, so it was liberating to be reminded of the target.   I will most likely order the protective shield as well in the very near future.   Sabina A.
