The planets ,the stars, the revolving earth and so on contribute in some way ,the patterns of our growth in life. They say , Lord Brahma, the creator draws the fate line for a living thing ,once written can never be changed. There are many who read 'Today's Horoscope' regularly to see their future ,perhaps succinctly, in the present itself. Some work ,some are just utter rubbish. Let me tell you ..I used to subscribe for this magazine which was issued on weekly basis only for it's horoscope. And trust me ...it has always worked. Being a hindu its is a natural thing for my parents to look into my horoscope once in a while to see if I will rule a kingdom or if I will land up cornered at the streets. My friend and I were discussing on this sensitive issue and he was telling me that if astrology was considered a major priority in life ,shouldn't we have to look into our own parent's and sibling's horoscope as to see if we can get along with them. And mind you what if the stars don't match? or what if the zodiac sign seems to be totally rebellious to each other? ...that should probably commence a divorce system within the family. Then maybe the lawyers would be having a great time looking at their 'money line' grow wierdly long in their horoscope. Aah! funny are life and it's ways.
So many marriages are bond on the basis of the horoscope system. Some make records and some form a part of the failures. If the newly married bride brings in a casket of happiness , everyone has the time only to praise and rejoice over the lucky bride. Whereas on the other side if she is reponsible for the boy's failure in everything he does then *whoa* the horoscope is forgotten to be blamed and instead the girl gets the inevitable tag. When asked to an astrologer about how the other religions manage successfull marriages without the star check and everything. He said ..'ya that is a question shot at us frequently.. all we have to say is .. the planets will do their job'.
And the horoscope topic has become more than ever important in the history of media after the much spoken about wedding of the year: Abhi-Ash wedding, where she is a 'manglik' which was supposedly considered a reason for Abhishek's could-be-death and fall in career.And after getting Ash married to three trees and gifting the diety anklets made of gold and wotnot , it was accepted as a wedding that should work for ever.Whether it is true or not ,if things were so easy , we should probably find solutions to fight death. Or maybe poverty, literacy, unemployment, scarcity of water and phew! the list goes on....More than blindly believing in horoscopes ,we should believe in ourselves. Our planets move according to our minds. It's the working of a subconscious mind. If we are positive inside ,we tend to work positively and that reflects in our attitude and work.I am not anyone to comment on the power of astrology. But one thing is for sure, we won't gain anything by being a pessimist. You should dominate your fate line. Dream your lives and live your dreams. If you are clear on what is your happiness then all you need to do is put in some sincere hardwork without any ill feelings about your plans and ofcourse the prayers that will never go unanswered. And see what magic it does. And anytime you get demotivated.. stick a picture of yourself on the wall and smash it with a stress ball until you are convinced of killing that coward within you. Wishing all of you a wake up call to your new fate line, i.e. creating one yourself, I am signing off for the mean while. Ciao!
