Do you believe in Astrology? Why or why not?
Astrology is not a profession for me, rather it is a vocation for me.
If I say I don’t believe in astrology, it would be an outright lie because I believe in astrology as I believe there is oxygen on earth.
I am 9th generation astrologer in a family of astrologers, so you could say astrology is in my blood and heart but if you say I would believe in astrology because of my heritage, then no, it is not true. Since a very early age, I was taught to learn Vedic mantra and various scriptures but no one forced me to go through all this. I went through all the learning process because I had seen countless happy faces in front of my respected father, ‘Pitaji’ I used to call him.
My father was very much respected in the field of astrology, and I saw countless people whose life was changed for good because of the advice of my father. Still, I did not believe astrology blindly but as I went forward on the path of learning, I saw the pure science, the miracle of numbers and calculations, and the marvel our sages recognised and invented, how could I not believe in astrology? Although there was no pressure on me to carry on the family tradition, I was free to choose a career of my preference, but having realised the potential to help others through this vocation, I chose to be an astrologer.
Astrology is not a profession for me, rather it is a vocation through which I help those who are in trouble and dire need of a helping hand. Sometimes I feel the presence of something miraculous when I see the change in a person, his life, his relationships, his personality just due to some advice I gave. Many people don’t believe in astrology consider it is a hit or miss kind of thing, or there is no science behind it, I am not here to convince them, I have only one advice, try it once.
