How to Consult a Vedic Astrologer
Short Introduction to Vedic Astrology & How to Consult:
Thank you for sending me the pertinent birth details in advance. In case, you have already furnished me with additional life-data, thank you also for the same, as that will be very necessary, for the astrological analysis.
Your Birth Chart is like a road-map of your life, from birth till death. It will show us, when obstacles manifest on the path of life, and when Grace or Blessings of Isvara [God], make our path fulfilling and pleasant.
Meaning of the Horoscope[Birth Chart]:
The Chart itself represents the Mood of Isvara [God, or the Central Intelligence of the Cosmos] at the time and place of birth, and this seminal Mood of Isvara, has benefic as well as malefic consequences, for the whole course of our life.
Remedial Measures, and their Scope:
Then, the Remedial Measures of Vedic Astrology, create in a very concerted manner, what we may appropriately call, “the second line of Grace”[the Birth Chart, showing “the first line of Grace in life], in those areas of life, where there is a conspicuous shortfall in the Grace of Isvara. Sometimes it does happen that, it becomes very difficult to create the second line of Grace in reasonable amounts – and this happens, whenever, there are what are called Afflictions in the Chart. In such cases, one has no option but to surrender to the Divine Will.
How to Consult:
Going to an astrologer is much like going to a medicine man, a doctor, and just as without describing our symptoms of disease clearly to the doctor, the doctor, will not be able to diagnose the malady, much less prescribe the correct medicines for recovery; so too, in astrology, all the symptoms of the break-down in some sphere of life, must be clearly spelled out – and this makes astrological analysis, so much easier, and the Remedial Measures, can then also be prescribed, to cover the areas of breakdown. This in a nutshell is what Vedic astrology all about.
Sharing All Significant Life-Data is Important:
It has been my experience that sometimes, many significant pieces of information are unconsciously withheld from me, by the consulting seeker. The reason could be a natural embarrassment, or the consulting seeker may feel that he or she does not know me well enough yet, to share what may be normally considered to be very confidential information. Though this reticence on the part of the seeker is quite understandable, unfortunately, this has the effect of putting both the consulting seeker, as well as myself, in a disadvantaged position, and the solution offered by me, subsequently, will also suffer thereby, from the drawback of becoming less efficacious. It is for this reason, that all symptoms of breakdown must be honestly spelt out, in the beginning itself, and this will be for our own benefit and well-being.
