34 Astrologist Questions and Answers:

1 :: Explain me what’s a horoscope?

Daily horoscopes are the most commonly recognized form of Astrology in the world. While it’s difficult to write an accurate and detailed horoscope that speaks to every single person’s specific situation, horoscopes can be a wonderful tool for getting the general astrological "lay of the land," and a good daily astrologer is expert at keeping us apprised of general conditions

2 :: Explain what’s a Moon sign?

Every 2 and 1/3 days, the Moon moves from one sign to the next, taking a total of 28 days to do a complete trip around the zodiac, stopping for a visit in one of each of the twelve signs of the zodiac before starting the same journey all over again. The Moon moves quickly, which speaks to your ever-changing moods and emotions.

If your Rising Sign represents your "external" self, it can be said that your Moon Sign represents your "inner" or "emotional" self, or the way you handle your emotions and the way you truly feel, whether you reveal it or not. To most astrologers, the moon is also about your intuition, your inner vulnerabilities, your fears as well as the things that can stir your heart. As is the case with the Ascendant, your Moon Sign may be entirely different from your Sun Sign, and reading your daily horoscope for your Moon Sign can also provide yet more insight into your personal astrological makeup. Learn about all the different Moon signs and how they shape your inner self.

3 :: Tell me what are Astrological houses?

The "houses" of your birth chart help to pinpoint a planet and a zodiac sign's specific influence over your life. For example, you may have the planet Venus in the sign of Aries, and your best friend might have her Venus in Aries too -- but they probably fall in different houses in your individual birth charts, thereby impacting entirely different areas of your life with that Venus in Aries energy -- which makes you entirely different people.

4 :: Suppose Astrology is so great, then why some predictions go wrong?

Astrology deals with the behavior of the human beings and the results of his actions. Since the life of a human being is very complex, decoding and understanding the influence of planets and stars is also very complex. Astrology provides very accurate picture of a human being’s life, but only a competent Astrologer can understand and interpret the picture correctly. If predictions go wrong, we cannot blame Astrology. We should blame the Astrologer.

5 :: Tell me what about twins? They are born on the same day, location and almost the same time?

Because twins are born at the same day and time, their horoscopes would be same. Thus the influence of planets and stars will be same on them. But there would be difference in the quantity of the influence received by each of the twins. The individual capacity of receiving the cosmic energy varies from person to person depending on other factors like their actions in the previous birth and their exposure to present social conditions.

6 :: Tell me what is Panchanga or Almanac?

Panchanga comprises of 5 elements:
☛ Thithi (lunar day),
☛ Vaara (day of the week),
☛ Yoga (Luni-Solar combination),
☛ Nakshatra (constellation) and
☛ Karana (half part of a thithi).
These 5 elements give an idea regarding the auspicious and inauspicious moments day by day and the type of activities to be done or not to be done on each day. You would be successful , if you start the ventures at those auspicious moments.

7 :: Tell me why people are more concerned about Kuja dosha (ill effect of Mars)?

When Mars (Mangalik) is in 2nd, 4th, 7th, 8th or 12th from your Ascendant or Moon sign, it is called Kuja dosha. Even though several exemptions are for this rule, it is found that Mars is becoming inimical especially in relation to married life when posited in these places. If Kuja dosha is found in the horoscopes of both the bride and bride groom, then it becomes neutralized and cannot cause harm. So people with Kuja dosha should contact an Astrologer just before fixing their match.

8 :: Tell me can Astrology predict future?

Why not? Since your present actions are mere reflections of your past deeds, and the future depends on your present actions, there is always a connection between past, present and future. By erecting the horoscope of a person, an Astrologer can understand his past, present and future. Even Astrology can tell you about your previous birth.

9 :: Explain what are Astrological aspects?

As planets move through the universe, they form angles to one another. These angles indicate the relationship between two planets and how they will work together.

10 :: Tell me what’s a Sun sign?

Your Sun Sign is crucial to your birth chart, and represents your general temperament. It is determined simply by the day and month of your birth.

While it’s is a mistake to think that knowing about your Sun Sign is going to deliver information about how you process things, interact with the world or deal with emotions and relationships, it does represent your basic individuality and forms the foundation for your horoscopes. Going further into your horoscope, more specific aspects of your being are reflected by other heavenly bodies and how they all are "aspected" to each other. Your Sun sign is just the beginning, but it’s a great place to start!

11 :: Tell me why is my birth time important?

The planets are constantly moving around and switching from aspect to aspect, so the difference of an hour can affect your birth chart, Moon sign and Rising sign -- and in turn, this will affect who you are. You can find your birth time information from your birth certificate or by asking your parents. The closer you can get to your specific birth time, the better.

12 :: Tell me what are Astrological aspects?

Astrology helps you on two planes. On material plane, it lets you understand your strengths and weaknesses. It helps you to decide whom to trust and whom not to. It guides you through the right times to conduct right activities. On spiritual plane, it helps you to understand your mission in this life. You can reach the ultimate goal of self-realization through Astrology. If you do not believe in Astrology, then you cannot get these benefits of Astrology which believers get.

13 :: Tell me why the predictions given by two Astrologers on the same event differ? Doesn’t it prove Astrology is wrong?

You are asking a question like this: When the same operation is done by two doctors, why one operation is successful and why the other one is failing? Doesn’t it prove that the entire medical science is wrong?

14 :: Astrology, Palmistry, Numerology, Tarot reading, Crystal gazing, Graphology etc… Which one is reliable?

You can rely on any of the above subjects as far as you are deriving correct guidance.

15 :: I came to know that in case of a woman, her left palm should be referred and in case of a man, it is the right palm. Is it so?

A Palmist should refer both the palms in case of a man or woman. Conclusions should never be given based on a single palm.

16 :: Tell me can I change my future? If everything is destined by God, then how Astrology can help me?

If you can change your future as you like, then where God stands? You can change only a few things in your life that are allowed by God depending on your past actions. Astrology gives guidance in those areas to take correct steps in correct times to reap maximum benefits. Certain other things which are not sanctioned by God cannot be changed by you or any one else.

17 :: As you know these days every body claims being an Astrologer. How can I recognize a real Astrologer?

An Astrologer should either descend from an Astrologers’ family or he should be a qualified Astrologer from a recognized University. It is better if he has some experience. He should perform spiritual practices and lead a pious life as prescribed by the scriptures. Priests, pundits, tantriks, mantriks, psychic practitioners, etc., should not be confused with Astrologers.

18 :: Some said that my birth star is not compatible with that of my prospective partner and hence we should not marry. Can you guide us in this regard?

To judge whether two people can marry or not - an Astrologer should judge the planetary compatibility in the horoscopes of both the bride and bridegroom. A single factor like 'star', 'yoni' or 'rajju' alone should not be given importance in deciding a match.

19 :: Suppose I don’t have my birth details like date, time and place of birth. How can I know my future?

Astrology needs your correct date, time and place of birth to erect your horoscope and predict your future. If you do not have these details, then it is better switch to Palmistry which can predict your future from your palms.

20 :: Tell me how gem stones influence our fate? How can I know which gem stone is suited for me?

Gem stones allow only one type of energy related to a particular planet into our body. So the problems related to that planet can be alleviated by wearing a gem stone. Most of the people wear gem stones depending on their birth star, moon sign or sun sign or just for fun. This is dangerous. An Astrologer can prescribe a suitable gem for you only after complete analysis of your horoscope.
