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.

It is an error to say that the universe is mere illusion, for it is entirely real when experienced in ordinary consciousness, and its existence is required to lead us to God.
