In the modern times, astrology has become a highly popular study. People now – a – days do not take astrology as a study, but as a necessity. Astrology, as already discussed, is believed to have the capability to modify human fate. It is believed that by following astrological predictions and warnings at times and by performing astrological remedies (based upon the planetary requirements), one can avoid unfortunate circumstances and events. For instance, suppose it is written in one’s fate that one is going to have a major accident on some particular date at some particular time. But if the person takes proper astrological guidance in advance through his / her astrologer, then s/he may get to know the possibility of the accident in advance along with some suggested astrological remedies to avoid / lessen the effect of the mishappening. In such a case, if the person performs the suggested remedies in advance, then astrology says that the accident surely will happen (as we cannot stop what is destined), but it will happen at a very minor level. Performing astrological remedies will convert the major accident to a mere minor bruise or scratch. That’s the magic of astrology! It is believed to be the cure of everything. It simplifies human life in very easy ways. All one needs to have is just a fistful of faith and patience. 

Use of Astrology in Different Arenas


Many people confuse in the use of astrology. They simply assume it to be similar to vaastu shastra or fengshui. Some think that astrology is just a way of knowing about future. But in real, astrology plays a highly significant role in a plethora of arenas like, health, education, career, wealth, relationship, etc. Discussed below is the role of astrology in different areas:

• Astrology and Health

Astrology plays a highly crucial role in regard to human health. Under astrology, it is believed that every planet and house of horoscope is associated with different body parts. Moreover, every zodiac sign is associated with different body parts and illnesses. The ones having a certain planet placed in a certain house and / or the ones having some certain zodiac sign along with some other combinations are believed to suffer from some certain illness / illnesses. For instance, it is believed that the ones having Saturn placed in a malefic position in their horoscope generally have quite weak eyesight.

Another example is that the ones having Mercury placed in a malefic position in their horoscope, or Mercury sharing a common house with its enemies or other malefic planets generally have tooth and / or skin problems, depending upon the extent of malefic effect. However, the cure of almost everything is possible in astrology. A simple way in astrology to strengthen one’s Mercury is to regularly feed green gram dal to birds. Sounds simple, no?
