Astrology


they say astrologer can read your palm and tell your future about you. they may not be the oracle telling things exactly as it will occur, but they can surely warn you of an impending thing, good or bad, and accordingly a remedy is given. my parents believe in astrology; somewhat. they don't refer to it like one would to as the word of god! but surely as something to be warned off and doing things to avoid it. but i am a 21st century girl, i refuse to believe anything said to be without a reason or logic. so when i was told to do certain things or wear gems i flatly refused; so if that meant that it will harm me i was prepared for it. but i guess things have change even if slightly once i was explained in a logical way of how the things work. I'm a mangalik but it doesn't effect me nor Samik, it cant help to know. but that doesn't mean from now on i will do things according to the auspicious time or without consulting my astrologer or vastuvid etc. but yeah to be warned and to look out if such things happen doesn't really hurt.

do you believe in palmistry or astrology?? would you be guided by kundali [horoscope]? what would be your take if the girl / guy you love is a mangalik*?

*mangalik is one who supposedly has a troubled personal life, his/her husband/wife dies early. so a mangalik is married off only to another mangalik. often the girl/guy is married off to a tree or shiva and then widowed to nullify the effect of mangalik on a non mangalik.

like it or not previous exp have made me believe in astrology. i had the same views like u before....but now with a horrible experience i have to believe that this guys say somethin real....

if not 100% then some % has got truth in it. trust me it has....dont trash me out on readin this, but there s a reason for mangal planet not to b in " 7th house"...

no astrology and no plamistry... so far i am convinced with my own logics...hardships are there in my life..tragedies...but never felt attributing them to astrology or something like that..people do say fate and all..am not a believer on that..

anyways am from a family who believes all these things except one or two members..someday i really would like to do a research on this topic, get to talk with someone who can really explain me things related to these things..!!

one more thing, horoscope matches are horrible..i have seen people leading happy content life even though their horoscope was so-so king and people who got 8-9 out of ten match suffering..!!

i have told my girl about my disagreement in checking the horoscope..though not a firm believer she insists to check since her family members are firm believers..now i have warned her, if the bloody astrologer says we are not matching,then dont come crying out to me..

I consider this whole cncept to be total crap!! and frankly, if u knw before hand what's going to happen in your life, thenby taking precaution are not fiddling with the laws of nature??? I abhor it.. though frankly, if asked to read up on it as a means to kill time.. then yes.. i wud luv it.. because it is interesting!!

Raka said...

@buzz
im beliveing in it because i have some first hand experience as well.. so im in a little fix but then i dont see the harm in seeing it

@vinu
thankfully my guy n me believe this...that no matter who saids what we choose to be together and the astrologer guy too didnt suggest to us they we should separate or something... so in a way he is safe or either of us would have surely throttled him ....so i agree with you on this one...

@sam da
hmm in a way i too belive it..and now im a semi non believer.

@ceedy
hmmm :)

Ria said...

No way i dont believe in all this!!if i knw the person and if i lov him then nothin else matters.

***do you believe in palmistry or astrology??

I am yet to meet an astrologer who can predict something with 100% accuracy. I myself have went to an astrologer whom my friends claimed can predict wonders, but I was disappointed. Yah, he tell 10 things, out of that 3 or 5 may happen and some happen oppositely to the prediction.
This is the case with almost all these things, nothing is 100% accurate. I've heard of people who claims to cure diseases by praying, but that too never happens at all times!

like the post!!!

my family doesn't believe in it and so do i, i mean ive never got my palm read or visited a jotish. I hope the guy i get married to doesn;t beleive in this too..lol.

About being mangalik, my religion doesn;t check that status...so basically there is no issue about being magalik coz it would't be pre determined.

Interesting post :)

Tho I dun live by Astrology, Im not gonna just dismiss it for the sake of it. I believe that all beings of Earth and nature are inter-connected somehow. Hence stars may hv an effect on human energy.

1st thng
whether u beliv or not ..If u go by science,Astrology is its one f the various branches ..so it's obvsly LOGICAL !!

secondly
this manglik thng is not alwys the way u mentioned ..from watever knowledgeable persons have told me,
like u can have loads and loads f prblms even when the couple is manglik ..depends on the cases actually !!!

well srsly if u give it d shape of a debate u vil have ppl telling u many thngs ..like astrology is a shit and stuffs ..so better go and ask someone who has done his PhD from some good universities like BHU etc ..they vil surely help ya !!

btw interesting post !

AVIANA said...

CM-Chap said...

Thought provoking post...

Frankly I wish to read abt personalities but not on Horoscope & stuff.

I guess it is gonna be few thousand decades to remove this one from our country

Southpaw unplugged said...

If i had to believe astrology and kundli then the kundli says i got 3 marriages, 2 kids, was supposed to die at ard 28, would enjoy the love of both father and mother as long as alive....
Now reality:-
# One marriage(not complaining at all)
# No kids possible, wife cant conceive due to some complications after the treatment of her cancer.
# I m 33, alive and kicking...
# Lost my father when i was 12, so dont understand that prediction also...

So better read those kundlis for fun and dont take them seriously its utter bullshit!

I'll try 2 be truthful said...

i'v never believed in astrology .& plz dont get bogged down by the 'mangalik' thing .
u know what i do , if some one tells me to believe in all this?? check the daily horoscope late in the night , by then whatever had to happen has already happened & it wont tally with that of the newspaper , so u can have a good laugh over it :D

Priya Joyce said...

the only one thing i wud say in this context is universe is a mystery a mysterious mystery.
I don't say i believe in it but i don't also say tat i don't believe coz these things can be connected to us or may be r not connected to us
the thing is our assumption towards these things need not be rite.
how can we be sure tat things r in the same way we thing it to be in? hmmm?
I am open to the truth I am still not going for either of the options.

Priya said...

My husband is mangalik :) We are happily married!

little boxes said...

i really cant say...
i personally havent had any experience whatsoever in this field...
but have met people for whom things turned out as foretold!

ha ha ha..i am so like laughing that ppl still marry trees..
shit imagining agirl in my mind right now saying "ohh i have got an Masters degree and now i have to marry a tree."

i think they even ask pandits should i take a piss today or not. :D

Some of u guys are so illogical..u believe in God..any logic behind that?? no..
see this similarity ..mo logic behind palmistry or kundli's too.

to all you still living in dark ages..ask pandits what will you become ..write it down..and see it after 30 years..what have u become? a fool i suppose.

yout fate is what u want it to be.Destiny doesn't makes you..u make destiny...choices makes us.

if u don't believe in astrology why do you call yourself mangalik? don't be a hypocrite. astology is a crap subject. it's for the weak & the coward.
