Why Is Astrology Not Accurate ?

Astrology is a divine science that has a mix of mathematical calculations and a divine instinct from the part of the astrologer. ┬áLord Murugan is often considered as the lord of astrology. There is an interesting folktale which tells why astrology isn’t hundred percent accurate.

Once Lord Shiva and Devi Parvathi were telling Lord Murugan about time and it’s uncertainty. Lord Murugan told Lord Shiva that he was aware of a way to predict the future. Lord Shiva was pleased and asked Murugan to predict Lord Shiva’s future. Lord Murugan told Lord Shiva about Astrology and said that according to it, Lord Shiva would prove his supremacy over Lord Brahma. Lord Shiva was greatly impressed.But, Lord Murugan added, Lord Shiva also had the fate to roam the earth as a beggar. Lord Shiva was greatly angered by this and cursed that Astrology would only be half true from then on. But, Lord Shiva himself was unable to overcome his fate and had to roam the earth as a beggar eventually.

    The story itself tells us the fact that astrology is accurate. The only thing is that astrologer should be an expert; otherwise you would land yourself in trouble because half knowledge is always dangerous.

    Om…according to the folktale, it is said that any predictions made henceforth would not be accurate…since the above mentioned prediction was made by Lord Murugan , and since it was made before the curse, the prediction remained accurate…but, that is just my explanation for the anecdote, i don't mean to take any sides…

    Experience is the best teacher. I have come across many astrological predictions which have come true. Hence I belive. Ofcourse there may be many who have got wrong astrological predictions.

    In my opinion this depends upon the astrologer. One who is well verse with the devine science of astrology and is doing so without prejudice and any ulterior motives. His own life style should be one of devotion and dedicated to humanity.

    Astrology is a divine subject.I personally feel that mere bookish knowledge will not suffice.Apart from bookish knowledge, one needs to have the grace of God to predict the future.
