What is Astrology?

Astrology is the mother of all sciences where the Earth has been considered a unit of the Solar family and the effects of the other members of the Solar family on the Earth and vice-versa - have been taken into account for analysis and also its pros and cons for the benefit of human. Astrology helps us by knowing or some ideas about our future days in advance. Astrology is a very comprehensive subject with various dimensions - like general astrology, medical astrology, mundane astrology, political astrology, sports astrology, astrology for space mission, musical astrology and so on. Any astrological queries from human inquisitiveness can be replied satisfactorily, but that require sufficient aptitude. Astrology is not a magic, it's purely based on astronomy and mathematics, but people entrusted in this subject, should have a comprehensive study on various subjects. Astrology is the most beautiful palace of knowledge with the most puzzling entrance. Majority people dealing with this subject are simply beating about the bush, which require adopting systematic process to perform.

Different countries of the World have their respective style of studying astrology in various dimensions. But whatever may be the styles are objective is one and same, i.e., to know the future. So irrespective of styles and methods - all roads lead to Rome.

Is Astrology a Science?

Although the name is self-explanatory. As we know logy means science, moreover, in the definition of science, it has been clarified that the - results of investigations are systematized; which is truly applicable in astrology; each and every, results of investigation are carefully systematized for the assessment of a concrete conclusion. Astrology is not only a science rather, the mother of all sciences, although it is occult in nature, but concrete in reality. A lot of controversy and debates have already been made for the positioning of this subject, but without going for such unproductive effort we should concentrate, learn and realize the depth of the subject, mere ignoring can make image of us nothing better.

Is there any Effects of the Planets on Us?

As the Earth, where we live in, is one of the member of the solar family and it enjoys the effects of the other members and vice-versa; so we can't fight shy of the effects of the planets as we are living inside the Earth. Therefore, the effects of the planets were, are and will remain on us, so long we will exist. The effects of planets on us are so enormous and unavoidable and therefore could not be ignored just by disbelieving it. To be very specific, astrology deals with the technicalities of ever changing planetary positions and their effects with the passing of time on us which varies from man to man. Simultaneously, we should also keep in mind that the living organisms in other planet or planets, if at all they exist, are also not free from the effect of the Earth, where we live in. Therefore, it's well established that the planets enjoy effects of each other, as they belong to a single family.

How Precisely do we Enjoy the Planetary Effects?

As we know, Moon is the only natural satellite of the Earth in the space and simultaneously we must remember that besides the Earth several planets like Jupiter, Saturn, Mars and Neptune have got also one or several Moon as their natural satellites. But in case of Earth, it has got only one Moon as its natural satellite and the job of this natural is to allow or convey the radiations or effects of the other planets into the Earth. Or in other words could be said that the Moon is the reflector of the radiations of other planets to allow them, get into the Earth. Do the other Moons of the other planets work same as that of the Moon of the Earth? Yes, it is. Moreover, if we consider that the Moon is the indicator of life present in the Earth, so this may be true that the other planets having their respective Moon may also possess the existence of life within. Please note that planets have permanent effect on our body and permanent, but passive effect on our mind; it's only the Moon which, has got direct or active effect on our mind which of course is momentary, with the help of planetary radiations activate our mind and allow us to think and work accordingly.

What is a Horoscope?

Horoscope is the picture of the planets during the birth of any person, which differs from man to man, due to the continuous movement of the planets. Astrological analysis of a person begins with the preparation of a horoscope which requires exact date, time and place of birth of that person concerned. The abstruse meaning of a horoscope keeps similarity with that of the pack of a medicine. If we go through the pack of any medicine we find:

  1. Manufacturing date
  2. Batch number
  3. Expiry date
  4. Composition
  5. Indication
  6. Contra-indication

Horoscope is also like a STAMP from the manufacturing company of the NATURE, which incorporates those features like a medicine. Horoscopes in holds the positions of the planets during the birth of a person. To prepare a horoscope three (3) information are mainly required, viz.

  1. Date of birth
  2. Time of birth
  3. Place of birth

For the preparation of a horoscope we need astronomical data which will provide us with exact positions of the planets on their respective orbit of movement during the date and time of birth of a person, which is different for everybody. From the place of birth of a person, we can find out the geographical latitude and longitude and also can calculate their differences from the celestial (Topo-centric) latitude and longitude. Accurate judgment of a horoscope is the most important job and is the main objective of studying astrology. In reality, we all are a single product from the manufacturing unit of God himself. Like every individual, each and every piece of or country has also their respective horoscope and which comes under the jurisdiction of mundane astrology. From the mundane astrology, we can predict the time of prosperity as well as deterioration of any country or countries in the World.

Time of Birth - How It's Determined?

People usually have a lot of confusion about the determination of actual birth time of a new born. Somebody opine that when the baby comes of its mother's womb and get into the exposure of air is the actual time of birth. Some people say that when the umbilical cord gets disconnected from the mother's body is the actual time of birth. Another group believes that when the baby makes its first cry is the actual time of birth.

But from the astrological angle of view, Time of Birth, in all sense is considered when the Air gets its first entrance into the lungs of a New-Born, causes enough thrill within the body which makes the baby cry. When the baby comes out of mother's womb, doesn't matter by a normal phenomenon or by surgery, can't ensure birth, as, God forbid, a dead baby may also come out.

Therefore, entrance of air into the lungs of a new born testifies and ensures the Real Birth and there from, countdown of a new life begins.

Now the question is, how can we calculate a correct horoscope if at all there is any human mistake to record the actual time of birth?

Standard addition/deduction are in the regular method of astrology with respect to constellational transit of the Moon on its orbit, which helps us by locating the exact position of the Moon during one's birth and thus, we can assure preparation of a correct horoscope.

What is Palmistry?

Palmistry is another branch of occult science, which deals with the comprehensive study of the palm-prints and gets the idea of future events in life. Palmistry is another proof which champions that everybody has a different life, as because we all have different palm prints. Several stalwarts, in this field of science have worked successfully and are honored globally. Besides ascending and descending lines on the palm, shape of the fingers, nails, color and texture of the skin over the palm are also considered the important factors for the judgment. Hair growth on the skin of the hands as well as its consistency has also got remarkable meaning. Uniform consistency of hair growth over the hands, indicate steady life. The ascending lines are considered auspicious amongst the lines on the palm. Mounts at the junction of each finger are the important guiding factors for the correct analysis. In a nutshell, it can be said that palmistry is the physical approach of the occult science to know the future.

Is there any Relation between Astrology and Religion?

Astrology deals with the religion of nature and it is neither a superstition nor a magic. The prime objective of studying astrology is to know the truth, which, of course, is the objective of studying any subject. In literal sense, what we understand by the word religion, that is also the derivative of nature. Simultaneously, the person who is going to guide people with the knowledge of astrology, if doesn't have profound authority on the subject, can misguide people and that will, of course cut a sorry picture. Therefore, in some religion it has been discouraged, but in reality there is no contradiction between astrology and religion; rather, from time immemorial, both, astrology as well as religion had had tremendous complementary approach between each other. The only difference between astrology and religion, is that religion may indulge emotion, but there is no room for emotion in astrology because, astrology is based on mathematics and logic. Therefore, without profound knowledge on the subject people may get deviated very easily from the purpose of study.

How Does Astrology Analyze Global Political Scenario?

This has already been discussed in the book, Luster of Eternity, that a group of countries in the World reach at the top of its developing climax or apex which take a consistent span of 50 years and also take another 50 years to get down at the bottom of destruction. This is a continuous process or rule of the nature and not a single country in the World is out of this rule. Nature governs the World following the Zodiacal distribution of the countries, but political boundaries of a country are not done according to the Zodiacal area. When a particular zone of the World gets affected, if that zone covers an entire country, so destruction of that particular country is possible; but if that zone covers only a small part of a big country, so total destruction of that country is never possible, i.e. nature is very specific in its action and it doesn't understand our political distribution of the countries.

It has been observed that the planets posited at the longest distance from the Sun, are responsible for such slow, but steady effects on Global politics as well as development and destruction of different countries. Those planets are Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto.

In this context we can name some countries which are going to be on the top of their development within the next 3 to 4 years (2007-2008), viz - Norway, Morocco, Algeria, North-Syria, Queensland, Bavaria, Barbary, Judea, Jutland, Cappadocia, Catalonia, Transvaal, Brazil and Sweden.

Moreover the countries coming up within next 5 to 6 years (2009-2010) are as follows: Poland, Abyssinia, Arabia the stony, Red Russia, Prussia, Sweden, Circassia, Tartary, Westphalia, Wallachia, Lithuania, Piedmont and part of England.

Besides these, from the horoscope of the political leaders, this can easily be predicted about the best as well as the worst time of his or her political career. A people's representative when, go for any mission for the betterment of the country, the time must be auspicious which will bring about good luck to the leader as well as the people of the country. Each and every day is under consideration for the purpose to make the mission fruitful. An astrologer can analyze the degree of auspiciousness of each and every day for the leader to make the mission successful as well as to ensure the most conducive situation for the country as well as the World as a whole. It's time tested that the result of a particular work if, done in a very auspicious time can never go in vain, which is bound to assure dividend for all time to come. It is found very frequently that when a leader passes through the bad time of his life, usually losses power, if he is in the power will be taking wrong decisions, due to adverse planetary effects, as a result the country suffers. On the other hand, auspicious time in the horoscope of the leaders of the countries impart great as well as prosperous effect to the country as a whole. Therefore, this could be said with firm conviction that a leader should take the leadership of his country then only, when he is passing through the best time of his life and if this practice continues in each and every country of the World, we will simply forget the imagination of a fictitious heaven.
