Astrology – a Source of Wisdom

“Astrology is one of the oldest and most accurate tools known to mankind”.

Chris Flisher

Astrology is shaped by the movement of the planets and the stars and how they influence a human being in his lifetime. It is derived from two Greek words: Astra, meaning a star, and Logos, meaning logic. Genesis of astrology lies in ancient Indian and Babylonian traditions. In India the earliest use of the term ‘jyotiṣa’ is in the sense of a Vedanga which an auxiliary discipline of Vedic religion. Today astrology is deeply weaved in a human life.

Use of Astrology for Progress of Human Being

Astrology is an immense facilitator in the progress of human life. It provides solutions to tackle harmful behavioral patterns and upcoming challenges after revealing them. It pinpoints latent talents possessed by a person and also provides aid to best groom them. Moreover, rewarding trends that lie ahead in a human life is pointed out and assistance is enabled to take advantage of them before they fade away. It is an excellent means to determine the perfect timing for certain actions.

Why astrology is needed?

Firstly, the astrologer’s guidance is found to be useful. Secondly, solutions of astrology are free of human judgment. It operates on a higher level, like a religion. It knows more about the person than the person knows about himself. In short, astrology is personal. It balances strong and weak points of a person and shows a way out. Often professional qualifications, proved by examinations are not enough for achieving the career aspirations, human qualities are also required. Astrology can help make objective decisions, as astrologers cannot manipulate the message of birth chart, nor does it depend on the whims of the astrologer. The birth chart can be proved mathematically, and also shows the prospects of success.

What dimension it has opened for mankind?

Astrology lights up the pathways of life and provides a choice whether to walk the same in the direction. It provides a human being with the tools of protection in the challenging phases of life and is a connecting chord among past, present and future. It is unbiased as it does not differentiate in terms of caste, religion, gender or nationality as it is fundamental in nature.

What all progress would not have happened if astrology was never invented?

The birth chart of a person contains more than enough combinations to describe situations in life. It shows a picture of the person encompassing his mental, physical and professional abilities. It also highlights details of prospects of marriage, partnerships, children, enterprises, difficulties, preferences, and so on. A human life without this guidance would be deprived of protection and aid to enhance life. 

“Without Astrology man treads as it were, in the dim twilight of ignorance”.
