What Is Astrology? Who Is Astrologer?
What Is Astrology?
Astrology is not a tool of escapism: Astrology never intends to be a subject of escapism. Astrology is a wonderful tool to find good and bad times in life well in advance so that you can exercise more free will to face the challenges. Always take astrological guidance with the right spirit and take responsibility for your own life. Thinking someone else in the world can solve your problem is no more than ignorance. Even if someone does it, it may not be permanent.
Astrology is not fate :
Some fatalist astrologers may tell you that life is all about fate. On the other hand, many so-called positive thinkers may propaganda that there is no fate and life is full of free will. But nature is a mix of fate and free will. Fate is like gravity but all the inventions against gravity including, space shuttles, are developed because of human free will. Astrology simply indicates what is likely to happen according to the planetary set up at the birth. One can augment or lessen the effect with will power.
Astrology is not a predictive tool
Astrology is not just a predictive tool but rather it gives guidance to live a sensible life. If your horoscope shows some affliction to a particular bhava, then it is a clear indication that you need to work on those areas for the betterment. Taking astro guidance with the right spirit will help you take empowering decisions and lead a fulfilling life.
Astrology is not a shortcut tool:
Astrology is not a curative tool to remove all disease and displeasure of life. It cures neither physical nor mental illnesses. Some astrologers may practice as healers, but astrology is not a medicine. Astrological guidance can help you know what possible illness you may have and when they might occur. Taking proper medical assistance during those times would reduce the damage.
Astrology is not magic:
mantra or tantra Many still believe that astrology is magic, and astrologers are super-humans, which is far from the truth. Though astrologers use intuition at times to arrive at the conclusion, the predictive techniques are rational and logical.
Astrology is not a tool to defeat your enemies :
Some astrologers may also practice tantric or black magic. But astrology as a subject has no connection with mantra or tantra. People many times assume that they can defeat enemies through black magic, mantra, and tantra, but one should understand that the negative energy that goes from you will come back to you. Hence, always use astrological guidance to achieve a positive change in your life.
Astrology is not focused on remedies:
Many still believe that astrology and remedies are inseparable. As mentioned earlier, the planetary set up in the horoscope is due to our own past karma. So, if we are the ones who created past karma, then it is evident that we can alter it through conscious actions. Remedies are just a way to remove psychological impediments.
