there any scientific proof for Astrology?
sure that everything told by the scientists is correct? Before
Galileo, scientists used to say that the earth is the centre

other planets are revolving round the Sun. The point is

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

picture correctly. If predictions go wrong, we cannot blame
Astrology. We should blame the Astrologer.

future. Even Astrology can tell you about your previous birth.

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

practitioners, etc., should not be confused with Astrologers.

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.
12. 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. You can find more information about Kuja dosha at: Kuja dosha - fact or myth?

14. Aren’t the lines on the palm just
creases formed by hand movement?
The lines of the
palm are not formed because of folding the palms or movement
of our hands. There are three reasons for this. 1) If the
lines are formed just because of folding our palms, then you
should see only horizontal lines in your palms, since you can
fold your fingers down towards the inner palm. But, there are
also lines which pass vertically in your palms. 2) If the
lines are mere marks of movement of muscles then a manual
laborer who works more with his hands should have more lines
than those of a person who do sedentary jobs. But, in
thousands of cases it is proved that the laborers have very
few lines. 3) The lines in the palm are formed by the time the
fetus is 10 weeks old. But the muscles to fold the palms are
formed after 11 th week.
15. How gem stones influence our fate? How can I
know which gem stone is suited for me?
allow only one type of energy related to a particular planet
into our body. So the problems related to that planet can be

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

short Life line represent a short life?

the Heart line. Then we should examine Life line along with
the Head line and some other markings in the palms. Generally
a short Life line represents deficit of iron, calcium and
other mineral deposits in the person’s body.
17. 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?

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

20. 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. You can have correct information on match making at: Match making - the right way
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.
