Four years ago many universities collected data for a HUGE graduate education survey. We’ve been anticipating the release for about three years. Yesterday we were notified that we would receive the embargoed data on September 20th and the full release would be on September 28. Immediately upon reading the notice I thought of Mercury.
A perfect example of Mercury retrograde going back and taking care of old problems!
Great people all over the world have been trying their level best to explain the ‘Panchtatvas’, which form the basis for all kinds of studies. Astrology is one of the major arts whose presence cannot be neglected by any individual. It is one of the oldest schools of ancient schools of prediction. Astrology is based on calculations, principles and predictions.
In Astrology, it is believed that every human being has fortune based on what work he/she performs during the entire life and the nine planets has immense effects on the lives of humans. With other form of sciences dealing with just the outer physiological and behavioral pattern of human beings, astrology makes a connection with both inner and outer life of a person.
On the basis of Dasha, Antardasha and Mahadasha astrology can very rightly predict the future quite accurately. Moreover, not only does it predicts the goods and the ills of the future, but also proves as a source of providing appropriate remedies to recover from the odds hidden in the future. In this way it brings about a new ray of hope into the lives of people with an opposing motion of the weak planets and makes their living happier and healthier.
In Vedic Astrology, a basic Birth Chart is prepared based on the date, time and place of birth and then studies are carried out in a number of ways which enhances the opportunities for growth and prosperity and reduces to a large extent the sufferings of the individual. In a way it brings a new zeal and enthusiasm in a person’s life by enlightening the pathway to the future.
Only after one realizes the great sense of being and the upcoming joys or sorrows of the future, one gets to make himself worth it or prepare itself for it. Everything in this life is pre-destined, be it joy or sorrow. Astrology just uncertain it. Wisdom, fore-knowledge and our deeds can indeed influence it as whatever has been pre-written has been done so in order to be changed.
