1. Why should I believe in Astrology?
Astrology helps you on two planes. On material plane, it lets you understand your strengths and weaknesses. It helps you to decide whom to trust and whom not to. It guides you through the right times to conduct right activities. On spiritual plane, it helps you to understand your mission in this life. You can reach the ultimate goal of self-realization through Astrology. If you do not believe in Astrology, then you cannot get these benefits of Astrology which believers get.
2. Is there any scientific proof for Astrology?
Are you sure that everything told by the scientists is correct? Before Galileo, scientists used to say that the earth is the centre of the universe and the Sun and other stars are revolving round the earth. After Galileo, the same scientists said that the Sun is the centre of our solar system and the earth and other planets are revolving round the Sun. The point is science is at infant state. It should grow to understand Astrology which is a super science. You can see some interesting discussion on this at: Astrology and Science.
3. If Astrology is so great, then why some predictions go wrong?
Astrology deals with the behavior of the human beings and the results of his actions. Since the life of a human being is very complex, decoding and understanding the influence of planets and stars is also very complex. Astrology provides very accurate picture of a human being’s life, but only a competent Astrologer can understand and interpret the picture correctly. If predictions go wrong, we cannot blame Astrology. We should blame the Astrologer.
4. Why the predictions given by two Astrologers on the same event differ? Doesn’t it prove Astrology is wrong?
You are asking a question like this: When the same operation is done by two doctors, why one operation is successful and why the other one is failing? Doesn’t it prove that the entire medical science is wrong?
5. Can Astrology predict future?
Why not? Since your present actions are mere reflections of your past deeds, and the future depends on your present actions, there is always a connection between past, present and future. By erecting the horoscope of a person, an Astrologer can understand his past, present and future. Even Astrology can tell you about your previous birth.
6. Vedic Astrology predicts my future in one way and Western Astrology predicts my future in a different way – why is this disparity?
Vedic (Indian) Astrology, Western Astrology and Chinese Astrology are different systems developed by ancient seers. Your future does not change with any of these systems. The disparity arises depending on the understanding of these systems by the practicing Astrologers.
7. Is astrology about fate or free will?
Most Astrologers say Astrology is all about free will and you can do anything you like. If this is the case, any beggar can become a king by exercising his free will. Astrology talks about your fate and at the same time gauges how much free will has been sanctioned by God as the result of your previous actions.
8. What is the difference between Sun sign and Moon sign?
The sign (rasi) where the Sun is located at your time of birth is called Sun sign. The sign where the Moon is located at the time of your birth is called Moon sign.
9. I don’t have my birth details like date, time and place of birth. How can I know my future?
Astrology needs your correct date, time and place of birth to erect your horoscope and predict your future. If you do not have these details, then it is better switch to Palmistry which can predict your future from your palms.
10. These days every body claims being an Astrologer. How can I recognize a real Astrologer?
An Astrologer should either descend from an Astrologers’ family or he should be a qualified Astrologer from a recognized University. It is better if he has some experience. He should perform spiritual practices and lead a pious life as prescribed by the scriptures. Priests, pundits, tantriks, mantriks, psychic practitioners, etc., should not be confused with Astrologers.
11. What about twins? They are born on the same day, location and almost the same time?
Because twins are born at the same day and time, their horoscopes would be same. Thus the influence of planets and stars will be same on them. But there would be difference in the quantity of the influence received by each of the twins. The individual capacity of receiving the cosmic energy varies from person to person depending on other factors like their actions in the previous birth and their exposure to present social conditions.
12. Why people are more concerned about Kuja dosha (ill effect of Mars)?
When Mars (Mangalik) is in 2nd, 4th, 7th, 8th or 12th from your Ascendant or Moon sign, it is called Kuja dosha. Even though several exemptions are for this rule, it is found that Mars is becoming inimical especially in relation to married life when posited in these places. If Kuja dosha is found in the horoscopes of both the bride and bride groom, then it becomes neutralized and cannot cause harm. So people with Kuja dosha should contact an Astrologer just before fixing their match. You can find more information about Kuja dosha at: Kuja dosha - fact or myth?
13. Astrology, Palmistry, Numerology, Tarot reading, Crystal gazing, Graphology etc… Which one is reliable?
You can rely on any of the above subjects as far as you are deriving correct guidance.
14. Aren’t the lines on the palm just creases formed by hand movement?
The lines of the palm are not formed because of folding the palms or movement of our hands. There are three reasons for this. 1) If the lines are formed just because of folding our palms, then you should see only horizontal lines in your palms, since you can fold your fingers down towards the inner palm. But, there are also lines which pass vertically in your palms. 2) If the lines are mere marks of movement of muscles then a manual laborer who works more with his hands should have more lines than those of a person who do sedentary jobs. But, in thousands of cases it is proved that the laborers have very few lines. 3) The lines in the palm are formed by the time the fetus is 10 weeks old. But the muscles to fold the palms are formed after 11 th week.
15. How gem stones influence our fate? How can I know which gem stone is suited for me?
Gem stones allow only one type of energy related to a particular planet into our body. So the problems related to that planet can be alleviated by wearing a gem stone. Most of the people wear gem stones depending on their birth star, moon sign or sun sign or just for fun. This is dangerous. An Astrologer can prescribe a suitable gem for you only after complete analysis of your horoscope. You can find more information about various gems by clicking here.
16. Does a short Life line represent a short life?
No. To judge the life span of a person, we should give importance to the Heart line. Then we should examine Life line along with the Head line and some other markings in the palms. Generally a short Life line represents deficit of iron, calcium and other mineral deposits in the person’s body.
17. I came to know that in case of a woman, her left palm should be referred and in case of a man, it is the right palm. Is it so?
A Palmist should refer both the palms in case of a man or woman. Conclusions should never be given based on a single palm.
18. Why should I go to an Astrologer and not a Psychologist?
What information a group of Psychologists can provide you over a period of several years, can be provided by an Astrologer in a few minutes just by observing your horoscope.
19. What is Panchanga or Almanac?
Panchanga comprises of 5 elements: Thithi (lunar day), Vaara (day of the week), Yoga (Luni-Solar combination), Nakshatra (constellation) and Karana (half part of a thithi). These 5 elements give an idea regarding the auspicious and inauspicious moments day by day and the type of activities to be done or not to be done on each day. You would be successful , if you start the ventures at those auspicious moments. More information on Panchanga can be obtained by clicking here.
20. Some said that my birth star is not compatible with that of my prospective partner and hence we should not marry. Can you guide us in this regard?
To judge whether two people can marry or not - an Astrologer should judge the planetary compatibility in the horoscopes of both the bride and bridegroom. A single factor like 'star', 'yoni' or 'rajju' alone should not be given importance in deciding a match. You can have correct information on match making at: Match making - the right way
21. Can I change my future? If everything is destined by God, then how Astrology can help me?
If you can change your future as you like, then where God stands? You can change only a few things in your life that are allowed by God depending on your past actions. Astrology gives guidance in those areas to take correct steps in correct times to reap maximum benefits. Certain other things which are not sanctioned by God cannot be changed by you or any one else.
