Astrology & Angel Numbers
These two happen to be the most controversial topics of all times; former much more than latter!
There’s a huge hue & cry around Astrology as most of the believers have blind faith whereas others turn a deaf ear on to this nine-letter word!
So what should you believe in?
Well, I used to be (once upon a time) overly interested in Astrology (which is a study of movement & positioning of celestial bodies and it’s influence on human affairs)! My interest piqued at the time I was on a look out for my soulmate and moreover, desperately seeking divine guidance! I was relying so much on Astrology to give me some answers that I was falling prey to remedies which didn’t make much of a sense to me. But time taught me well!
To clear the air, let’s first understand what Astrology is truly about.
It’s broadly categorized into calculative astrology & predictive astrology. The former (calculative astrology) is a branch of astronomy that is primarily concerned with the movement of planets & stars. Predictive astrology on the other hand, is about the impact of these celestial bodies on us individuals.
The legendary monk, Om Swami says, there are absolutely no “upayas” / “remedies” in either of them!
He also candidly says,
“If your astrologers charge you for giving you a remedy, they profit from it directly. If they tell you to do something where no money is involved, they gain from it indirectly by winning your trust.
You think, this is a good astrologer. He has no vested interest; he stands to gain nothing from it. But, the truth is today he’s telling you a free remedy, tomorrow he will tell you a paid one. Or, to you he’s giving a free amulet and he’ll charge the next reference client you will bring to this good fortune-teller.”
In my humble opinion, YES there are times we cross paths with very intuitive & psychic astrologers who are able to guide us well + put us at ease during times we’re seeking support & guidance… but to tell you the brutal truth, there is dearth of such individuals on this plane of existence at the moment!
Always know that you will not need to rely on Astrology if-
-> you are in-tune with your intuition
-> you are on a spiritual path which empowers you to tap onto your potential to fulfill your divine timing with ease, grace & glory
-> you are an optimist who has unshakeable faith in the Creator (God)
-> you ‘understand’ the law of cause & effect (karma)
-> you are aware of the power of your thoughts
The minute you raise your vibration to a point that you are comfortable taking responsibility of both the bad & the good in your life and stop playing the ‘blame game’, you take your power back from
A S T R O L O G Y !
I AM NOT SAYING THAT IT’S SOMETHING THAT SHOULDN’T BE TRUSTED, ALL I AM STRESSING ON IS THE FACT THAT IF YOU ARE WISE ENOUGH TO TAKE OWNERSHIP & CONTROL OF YOUR THOUGHTS & YOUR LIFE, YOU WILL NOT NEED ASSISTANCE FROM THE PLANETS & STARS TO TELL YOU IF YOU ARE ON THE RIGHT PATH OR NOT… YOU WIL INSTINCTIVELY KNOW!
I loved what Om Swami had to say on this,
“Let’s gracefully accept the things that are not in our control & work on the others that are.
If there’s any way to change your destiny, then it is by working on yourself!
Everything falls in place then.
Gems and stones, totems and trinkets, and what have you, cannot change the course of time!
If your marriage is on the rocks, then both partners have to work on it.
If you are under debt, then you’ve got to cut down your expenses and increase your income!
Wearing a certain stone or pacifying a certain planet is not the answer if you ask me.”
I absolutely love how candid he is about his beliefs. This world needs monks & writers like Om Swami.
Law of Attraction
Most people confuse Astrology with the Law of Attraction.
Law of Attraction is one of the many the Laws of the Universe, just like Law of Gravity, Law of Cause & Effect (Karma), etc.
The reason these so-called “remedies” suggested by your Astrologers work is because your FAITH in them. This faith signals the universe to pull into your reality what you truly & deeply, desire & deserve.
There are a plethora of techniques you can play around with to manifest your dream life. I make my clients do all kinds of visualization exercises which not just calms them down but also raises their vibration.
When you operate from a high state of vibration, you communicate with the Universe better by understanding the true meaning of ‘synchronicity’.
