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.

So loved is Siva-Shakti that all have an intimate relationship. So vast is His vastness, so over-powering is He that men cringe to transgress His will. So talked of is He that His name is on the lips of everyone--for He is the primal sound.
