Astrology is not a science. It is a kind of a sign language. By reading certain signs, people are able to make certain types of predictions but they are never 100% correct.
Based on certain indications, you are making a guess that it will go a certain way. It may go that way if you live a
very unconscious life but if you become a little more conscious, you can make it go whichever way you want. Planets are just inanimate objects. And inanimate things should not be allowed to decide the course of your life. Human nature is much more significant than inanimate things.
Do you know that on full moon and new moon nights, people who are a little mentally disturbed and psychologically fragile will get even more imbalanced? Does everybody else also go crazy on full moon nights? No, because compared to that person, you are a little more stable. Because you are stable, wherever the moon goes, it does not matter; you remain the same person. Fundamentally, the moon has an influence on your life but you do not notice it because you are stable. Similarly, if you are much more stable, let every planet go wherever it goes, you will go only where you want to go.
Some people do not realise the immensity of what it means to be human, they constantly talk about gods and heavens and planets and the like.
If a human being is set on something, no force can stop him from attaining that. Especially when it comes to the inner nature, there is nobody and nothing in the existence which can stop you. Even if God himself wants to stop you, he cannot, if you are fully set on how you want to be. Right now, if you are set, if you have decided this moment that you will be joyful and happy, can God stop you? No. Nothing in the existence can do that. You can determine the course of your own life, no matter what the movements of the planets are. www.ishafoundation.org
