Any way it is the personal choice of an individual if he or she wants to believe in science of astrology. There are several books based on astrology, the newspaper carry weakly or monthly forecasts and the local news channels have a time slots exclusively dedicated to astrologer. If we see it positively astrology is an effective science that guides us in difficult times and it is the faith that keeps us going.
Astrology is a science for the people by the people and for the people. We as humans are a race that is full of emotions and love. We want to be loved, cared and wanted. We live in a false world full of illusion and fake superstitions. We link our failures and achievements to stars and Nakshatra. We are ready to spend thousand on the suggestions of Brahmans, priests or the astrologer. Astrology is the science and study of planets their influence on our birth charts. According to the ancient texts it was prevalent even before the birth of Christ.
The pyramids of Egypt were made on the basis of constellation of the stars. The pyramids were chambers where the dead bodies of the ancient king and queen were laid to rest. The locals believed that on the fateful day the tip of the pyramid would get the light that would give life to the dead body. It is believed that the pyramids have crystals that were considered to give the energy and power to the body kept inside.
Astrology is also a science which is practised by the astrologers who undertake the courses that is now available online and also completed through correspondence. They study about various planets, calculation, and they also study in dept the importance and relevance of gems, precious and semi precious stone. The birth chart is prepared the day we are born by using the exact time according to the clock present in the hospital, location and planetary position present at that time. The zodiac sign is determined according to the date of birth. The planets that have a high degree are considered favourable and the ones with less degree are considered as weak stars. Various gems and remedies in the form of cash or kind are given in writing with an assurance that we do the necessary remedies we will reap rich benefits and a healthy life.
But we are sure there is a huge section of people who do not believe in this science. According to them how can a handful of stars and planets predict an entire life span, mishaps or fortunes? What if the time give for making the chart is wrong as in the olden times people were illiterate and did not know how to see the right time? Most of the deliveries were done at home by the local nurse. It is not possible that every time the prediction done on the basis of birth chart is always correct or true.
As astrologers write in their weekly forecast about a certain zodiac. But honestly, do all the people who fall under the same zodiac experience the same. Sometimes the gems or the remedies may be suitable to the person concerned or it can also have adverse results. Still, there is a large section of people who believe in astrology. As a matter of fact we all like to know about the positive things that may happen in life and ignore the bad predictions.
