Astrology Facts
Many people don't know what Astrology is.Some people think that Astrology is just a guessing game.Astrologers keep some general predictions with them and give the same predictions to Everyone.
Some people think Astrology is related to occultism.Many modern Scientists don't believe in Astrology.Some people gets doubt whether Astrology comes under the category of Science or not?Many causes have contributed to the degeneration of Astrology.
Firstly there is the impenetrable prejudice which characterises the majority of the educated public who sneer at astrology as mere superstition and excuse themselves from any investigation of its claims on the ground that some modern scientists reject it.
Secondly,the springing up of a large number of untrained Astrologers charging less than 50 Rupees per Horoscope and playing on the credulity of the masses.Thirdly the narrow-mindedness of many of the scientists which has been greatly responsible for the present degradation of Astrology. No man is entitled to pronounce an openion on the merits of any Science unless he has devoted much time to its study and investigation.
What is Science?it is knowledge co-ordinated,arranged and synthesised.No science is perfect and no science can be called a chimerical branch before one can claim considerable proficiency in it.Take,for instance,any Science and see if it is successful cent percent or even seventy-five percent in its experiments.take the percentage of cures and kills effected by doctors.There is a long list of incurable diseases and the medical fraternity blinks before the fury of these diseases.?Jurisprudence is a Grand Science.What do the bright limbs of Law mean when they speak about the uncertainities of law?if law is a Science where is the room for failure of justice and prevalence of injustice?
Yet some of the Lawyers and Doctros have the impunity to classify Astrologers along with Quacks,Gypsies,Charlatans and Swindlers.When vast sums of money are spent on such chimerial subjects as Meteorology,what justification can the cultured public claim for rejecting Astrology and other Sciences propounded by Ancient Maharshis;Astrology is holding its head so proudly under the greatest disadvantages and neglect which are extended for its villification and it is high time that sufficient patronage is extended for it revival.
Let us examine the claims of Astrology to be ranked amongst Sciences.It investigates into the influences of time.Astrology is derived from the word Aster-star and Logos-reason or is called in sanskrit jyotisha or the science of light.
It throws light on the dark recesses of the gloomy attempts to foretell the future history of man,the fates of Nations,Wars, Revolutions and other terrestrial phenomena. It tells all these things not by vague guesses or gesticulations but on the adamantine basis of pure Mathematical calculations. By observation,by deduction and most important of all by induction, the Astrologer has actually found a correspondence between the movements of Planets and Events in the life of each individual and this assertion can be tested in a comparatively brief investigation by any intelligent person.
Ancient Maharshis were past masters in every branch of knowledge. Ethnology and Erotic Science were for the first time promulgated in the world by the Savants of India.
