This is with regard to the 'man made fate' post I had written a couple of days back. I received quite a lot of comments regarding this. I haven't said that astrology is a wrong thing and that astrologers are just making profits by trying their luck. There is a lot of study and research done on this subject. And whatever I am going to write today will be about things I have pondered about all my life...and nothing that is googled. Atleast for the meanwhile.
Jinu, a blogger had commented that 'there are some cheap souls trying to make money out of this talking about heavenly bodies and their angular tilt'.Now, as far as I know..this is a sensitive issue which is highly debatable but there are certain truths which have to be accepted though they might seem to be mythical and hallucinatory. Many of you must have returned unhappy after a visit to an astrologer's place. Perhaps because he said something about your fate ..that is unlucky for you or whatever. For some .. the astrologer must have played around with your dreams ,for example, he must have said that you will practice law when your studying medicine. Note , here I am talking about astrologers who are experienced enough.I was invited to sing for this Astrologers meet in Trissur and happened to meet scholars who majored at this subject. One Mr. Ravunni , a professor in astrology who is still in the midst of his research was sharing a lot of interesting facts during the meet. He said that astrologers can't be too precise about one's profession, life expectancy, emotional issues( like love/arranged marriage) ,how far one dasa will control,etc. He said ,an obvious reason could be that when a child is born, and the horoscope is made for him/her, time of birth is the most dominant factor taken into consideration. And even a minute's variation could change the whole thing. Now the question is when should the time of birth be recorded? When the baby's head is seen..or when the baby is seperated from it's mother by cutting the ambilical chord? A very argumentative doubt. This can only be sorted after 30 years when it is experimented on 4-5 children. Some nurses are very reckless while noting down the time of birth especially during the night shifts. Who knows..she could record it few minutes after the exact time. So this and many more factors contribute to one's fate.
Well astrology is true to some extent and let's leave it there. But if it is necessary for you to have an horoscope check every week on how your things will go..then maybe you should have a check with whether your parents horoscope is compatible with yours. And I am sure that if your horoscope for the day says that 'wear red. It is your lucky colour today' , you might indiscreetly wear everything that is red, leave alone being similiar to red! and what if the same horoscope asked you to 'run away from home. Your kith and kin could kill you'..would you then think of eloping?
