Astrology is part science and part art
One does not have to believe in astrology for it to work. Regardless of our beliefs, it is always present. Usually, people do not consider the role of mathematics and astronomy in astrology. Astrology consists of various mathematical computations, which these days are often done by using sophisticated software. Astrology is part science and part art. It requires practice and use of intuition. There are many fears instilled in the minds of people about the various planets. None of the planets is to be feared. They just need to be understood. It will be best to know what each planet stands for.
Sun is important for understanding the self and sorting out ego issues. Moon is responsible for self-control and purity of mind. Mars gives courage and a sense of initiative. Mercury is responsible for intellect. Faith, philosophy and belief system are governed by Jupiter. Venus is responsible for sexual energy and deals with worldly pleasures and the finer things life has to offer. Saturn indicates the areas for development. It is one of the most misunderstood planets but can be extremely benevolent. Rahu shows inner turmoil. Ketu shows a need to renounce materialistic attachments and a need to be spiritual in the areas of life.
This is the era of instant knowledge. To prove his/her mettle in this age, an astrologer needs to be accurate. Whenever anyone visits an astrologer, he/she should check how accurately is the astrologer able to predict the past events like the year of getting a job, getting married, having a child, etc. If a particular algorithm is able to tell your past accurately then of course it can be used as a guide to the future.
The biggest myth regarding astrology is that those who blindly follow it believe that it can miraculously solve their problems overnight. This is not true. Remedies take time and must be done wholeheartedly. They are used to enhance positive impact or to lessen the negative impact of planets. It can soften life's blows. Astrology cannot dramatically alter one's life.
Since ancient times, various sages have been using the knowledge of astronomy to predict the future. Astrology is not something new. It has been a part of the Indian culture for many years. It is still thriving. Do not reject it without trying.
