Systems of self exploration

Astrologically speaking I'm a Libra. I find that I exhibit many of the traits that are typical of Libras. I don't take astrology very seriously but I think it's interesting that many of my personality traits are consistent with the Libra sun sign.

In terms of Ayurveda, as far as I have been able to figure so far, I am a Pitta type.

Can I use this information to improve the quality of my life, find greater peace, and move closer to a state of enlightenment? We'll see.

Along with Ayurveda, I have a great interest in yoga. I sincerely believe that yoga is a cure for the human condition. But swallowing the pill seems like a long and difficult process, requiring great dedication and patience. I don't know if I have what it takes to really dedicate myself to a personal practice. So far I've failed to do so, but I keep hoping I'll pull it together and get started in earnest.
