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.

Understanding, loving and making allowances--these are the strengths of the soul awakened through sadhana, once the emotional ups and downs and the barriers of the instinctive influences of fear, jealousy, anger, deceit and disappointment are conquered.
