Astrology is never is a easy subject to learn and requires a lot of hardwork.It surprises you everyday & you learn something new.No one can claim 100℅ mastery over it. Its not just a science its a super science where divine power is involved directly.
A human mind is a very complex thing and every human have some certain of free will,though as per astrology most of the things are predestined but if someone’s conscience is evolved then Predestiney fails sometimes.
Thus reading a life map can be a hurricane task even if your a master of astrology. Astrology requires a dynamic approach from astrologers part where static significations won’t be a help. Largely only few astrologers have a right appraoch for reading a Horoscope. Here a astrologer itself is the key, astrologer’s birth chart should have some special combination which makes him or her capable enough to decode the Planetry allingments. Sometimes even if a astrologer is blessed with knowledge & sharp mind,some horoscope still can be a challenge,here astrologer’s “sadhna” comes in rescue. We all are aware of Yogis of India who don’t require any Horoscope for predictions, they can sense things. Being in constant state of “sadhna” their intuitive channel is activated in their lower spine. They have divine vision(divya dristhi) from which they can see the future.
Not just “yogis” if you visit Himalayas there are people who have their methods of predicting things,.They have aqquried sidhis with help of mantras given by their gurus. Predestiney again plays its part here & not every one can have divine vision or sidhis to see future,same goes for an astrologer. You need to have some Planetry allingments in your chart which helps you to read Horoscope in a correct way. Personally i have met few of yogis and wat they do is sometimes out of our so called scientific logic which was fed in our brains by English Schooling model.
India being a land of yogis & mystical things have so much to offer to world but our own scientific logical brain termed it as superstition. Being most evolved species among millions of others, itself is a divine thing and our so called modern science is still struggling to find the origin of first humans, so hypocrite is the modern science mindset is. Why cant world accept that there is a divine power which created us. Our vedas are filled with complex principals of physics but western world is not ready to accept it because we Indians are not interested in it .All we care for now is some temporary comforts & shallow education.This So called modern education system now days produced professionals with limited range of productivity and since history is written by winners,our super ancient science & scriptures have lost its value in its birth place India itself. Our Indian astrology have lost some valuable techniques of prediction due to constant invasions of foreign forces. Who can forget the famous way of prediction using “plam leaves” where future of every individual was already written by Sages. But most of these leaves are lost now, only few are remaining which were sold by Britishers to south Indian astrologers,its your luck if you will be able to find yours. 99℅ of Naadi centre across most of major cities of India, who claims that they have these leaves with them are fake and are doing business by fooling people.
Iam writing all these things here just to highlights very basic & important things which are very necessary for you if your interested in learning astrology.
Coming back to our main topic, here I should tell you few things regarding importance of Hindu Mythology,which is very important to learn if you want to excel in astrology. You know why western astrology is fail? Apart from their wrong ayanamsa, they don’t have a solid Mythology which supports astrology.
To make above sentences simple I should ask a question regarding how constellation Krittika was formed? Same way all of our Nakshatras have strong Mythological stories which are very helpful in understanding astrology & making predictions.In fact each Nakshatra have a mythological origin & Nakshatras are building blocks of astrology. Therfore the core of my few sentences above is that without Hindu Mythology you won’t be able to learn astrology perfectly.
OK,let me ask one more thing, why planet Saturn don’t give bad results to followers of Lord Hanuman,I guess we all know the reason behind this and that reason comes from epic Ramayan where Lord Hanuman freed planet Satrun from clutches of mighty Demon Ravvan.Demon Ravvan was a astrologer himself & made his own astrological work know as “Ravvan Samhita”.
There are other countless Mythological stories behind planet & house functions of which you should be aware of,atleast some extent if not fully versed in it.
The problem here is not learning in mythology, problem here is own so called progressive modern education system and our continues inclinations for western way of thinking & living, where Hindu Mythology don’t have any place,rather its a superstition.You ask a kid of current generation regarding our epic Ramayan or Mahabharata, many of them don’t have any idea about them.They are more proficient in Harry potter series or lord of the rings & find them more engaging. It’s not their fault either,it a flaw of our education system & new age modern society where there a no place such things which involves ancient teachings. Our school books have chapters on Moon or Mars mission but they don’t care to put more about our precious ancient works. Parents nowdays are more inclined to push their kids towards cut throat compitions & find our cultural values of no use. My criticism here is for pseudo intelligence possed by people which is doing a great harm to our great culture hence affecting quality of astrologers.
Coming back to main topic of astrology lessons, first we should discuss astrology combination for a astrologer.
