Astrology- an ancient crystal ball showing the future? Well not exactly. Modern day Astrology is based on an individual’s birth in correlation to the planetary positions. It aims to enable a person to clear the mist in their path of life.
Astrology is an ancient concept that has been in debate for a very long time. It is primarily based on the concept of planetary positions and their effect on a person’s life-past, present, and future.
It is a common belief that astrology is to predict the future and prevent mishaps. But there is more than that meets the eye. Astrology can improve the quality of living by making us aware of our condition, our strengths, and weakness, and what we must do to overcome obstacles. It gives us a deeper insight into the secrets of our being. Moreover, it aids us in making crucial decisions in life concerning careers and relationships.
There is a powerful connection within us that binds us to the universe. Astrology is like a tool to access that flow of everlasting energy that fuels our lives.
RELEVANCE OF ASTROLOGY IN MODERN TIMES
The entire idea of astrology has been debated for a long time. Some believe it to be baseless and a piece of fiction and there are yet others who realize it as a way of understanding their personality and situation in a much better way.
Astrology is still relevant now, more than ever. The modern-day generation seemed to become more intrigued by the concept of astrology. With the rise of social media, you are bound to come across astrology readings from different sources at one point or another. How the year will turn out for Aries? Will Gemini find success? will Leo find a life partner? and the list goes on. These astrological predictions are often published before significant events like New Year’s Eve. Even those without an understanding and common disbelief are bound to scroll, out of curiosity.
EFFECT OF PLANETARY MOTIONS ON MODERN DAY ASTROLOGY
The planetary motions have a profound effect on our emotions and on our mind which is far beyond our understanding. The astrological chart is based on the time of birth and the influence of a particular planet. The planetary positions may have both, a positive as well as a negative effect on our being. Astrology enables us to become more aware of its influence at a given period so that we can arm ourselves better. Social media has become a powerful tool in propagating the ideas of modern day astrology. Every day we see thousands of social media posts on various horoscopes telling us how our day would be. This has resulted in an increased level of awareness among the current generation and many of those who are involved out of sheer curiosity. But this also poses a risk. Many disguised professionals promote false information thereby damaging the purity of astrology. It becomes important to consult professionals and be very cautious of impostors.
Astrology can be broadly classified into- Vedic astrology and western astrology
Vedic astrology finds its roots in the Vedas and also shares the common belief that our lives are influenced by the positions of the planets and the stars. It calculates horoscopes based on the ecliptic path which is astronomically more accurate. Vedic astrology is meant to enable people to see ahead of the obstacles, not by means of fear, but as a path to spirituality.
Western astrology is primarily based on the zodiac signs-
The roots of western astrology go as far beyond ancient Mesopotamia, throughout Egypt, the roman empire, Greece, and the Islamic world.
It shared the concept of the planetary arrangement at the time of birth. It helped people to make decisions regarding war, harvest, and interpretation of a person’s character.
The zodiac sign represents the core and essence of a person’s being and their relation to the cosmos.
Astrology was based on the fundamental techniques of Genethlialogy. It is further is divided into – general, cathartic, and interrogatory. It is a tool that can guide us on the path of action and steer clear of the obstacle on our path.
