Astrology and Free Will

A cyber-devotee asks about the use of astrology and whether the will of man is stronger than the influence of the planets and stars. Gurudeva explains that astrology works best when the astrologer knows the client very well, including their family background, friends and associates. This is the way of traditional Indian astrology. And Gurudeva answers that, yes, the individual's own efforts can mitigate the negative periods.

Because Self Realization must be experienced in a physical body, the soul cycles back again and again into flesh to dance with Siva, live with Siva and ultimately merge with Siva in undifferentiated oneness. Yea, jiva is actually Siva.
