Why Astrology Uses Date , Time & Place of Birth for Prediction ?

According to Vedic astrology there are 12 houses in a horoscope and birth chart represents the position of planets during the time of birth. How can one predict about today and tomorrow based on the planetary positions during birth ?

Answer : 

Suppose you purchased a piece of 1000 square yard land, away from city limits and got it registered in your name . After 25 years , will the land location change in any way ? Will the water or underground things buried under your land change ? Will your address change ? Will Sunrise, sunset, wind direction change for your location ? Will the climate , rainfall , summer , winter etc change for your location ? Will soil characteristics of your land change ?

No ! All broad parameters of your land ownership will remain fixed.

The same way , the day some person or event or an organisation is born , its broad cosmic  characteristics are frozen and those cannot be changed . When any person or animal is born , most of parameters and design is fixed via DNA and those cannot be changed . A human being cannot become a horse or a wheat crop will not become a barley crop over the time .

Suppose you want to grow wheat on your 1000 sq yards after 15 years . You still have to undergo the same process of finding underground water level , soil investigation, climate , rainfall etc to assess which crop can be grown profitably in the given land .

If you want to construct a multistory complex on your land in later years, you will have to investigate your soil's load bearing capacity to know how much tall building can be erected on that land and in which earthquake zone your land falls.

Through all these examples , you can understand that beginning of an event or a person's life never leaves its significance for its entire life .

You were 3-4 Kg infant when born but even after decades you cannot get away from the fact of birth on a certain date to certain parents and a neighbourhood . You will be always recognized by your initial background and your age will be counted from that day .

Mr. Rahul Gandhi will always be recognized as a son and grandson of an Indian PM , no matter what he does or become in future.

Astrology takes this biggest parameter of life as basis for predicting the intrinsic value of that person or organization.

Then the subsequent changes are also added by use of Dasha systems and current state of planets by transit calculations . The sum total of all these past and present planetary effects ( original land + new construction / destruction) will decide the current value or future value and astrology predicts it correctly .

MBTI or Astrology Chart : Which one is better ?

Isn’t it a good idea to match/check the MBTI personality traits rather than matching the Kundli in India for marriages ?

   This was the question asked on and my answer is reproduced below :


Problem with such types of indicators is that the person himself would choose a type and that will create a bias . If someone else decides MBTI , then it may not be correct . So, both way it suffers .

Astrological charts on the other hand are free from any bias as the inputs taken are fixed and cannot be tempered easily and rules of astrology are very well recorded and lastly these have been in practice for thousands of years .

This reminds me my own experience in Management Development Institute , Gurgaon , India about a decade ago . It is a prestigious Institute by Govt of India established about 45 years back .

My employer had sent me along with 29 managers from my company for a week’s course in Management . On one of the days of the training , a professor gave 30 of us a questionnaire , which had about 40 Multiple Choice Type Questions . He told us that he will tell our personality type from our scores . You may yourself go for this exercise here. 

It took one hours in filling that , then professor checked the scores and called each of us predicting the personality . Frankly speaking , the participants were not much impressed with Professor’s telling the personality through MBTI . Since I knew the whole game , I filled wrong choices . When professor started telling about me , other participants started laughing .

So, he asked me what was wrong with the score ? I told him that participants were laughing because your findings were wrong . He was dismayed how it was possible . I told him that your prediction is dependent upon participant’s feedback , so either it can be deliberately tempered or they may be victim of self assessment bias . In both the situations , your method is not foolproof .

Professor was bewildered by this comment in full class . He said that such bias and tempering can happen with any method . I said that there are many methods which can not be easily tempered . He asked me to tell if I knew any such method .

I said that I will not tell the name of method but I will demonstrate it right here in the class . I then pointed to a person in the participants and asked him to stand up . I asked him if he had ever met me before, to which he denied any earlier interaction of any kind as he was from Tamilnadu and I am from Uttar Pradesh . None of us knew our names before that .

After establishing my ignorance about him , I asked him to reply some questions without any delay in Yes or No , to which he agreed . I asked him :

  1. Are you an aggressive person ? Answer : Yes
  2. Are you outspoken and react revengefully ? A: Yes
  3. Do you have occasional disputes with colleagues , boss ? Answer : Yes
  4. Do you fight with your wife / relatives / neighbours also ? Answer : Yes
  5. Do you get transferred in job frequently ? Answer : Yes
  6. Are you very good in risk taking and management always gives you very difficult tasks and postings in interior places but your efforts are not recognized by the management ?

    To the last question , he became emotional and expressed his anger on management before everyone .

The professor was flabbergasted ! He had taken more than 20 minutes on each participant after a 2 hour exercise and was still not able to make a reliable prediction about the participants’ personality while I did it without any questionnaire and instantly ? He lost all that he was going to teach in last 2 hours on MBTI based on our feedback and started discussing my method .

He asked me what was the basis of my predictions about that manager ? I said if I tell my method , you will immediately debunk it as a myth so I will not tell it but you yourself have seen that method as temper proof as I used his facial and physical features , which he cannot hide or change . He had Mars personality based on his physical feature and face type.

Professor called me later in his office to know it . I discussed it there how I arrived at my conclusions based on planets and physical feature . He termed it quite interesting and effective . I commented that Indian intellectuals appreciate the foreign knowledge more even if it is superficial while denounce our ancient wisdom , even if it is much better than western methods .

That is why, in case of marriage matching, our Samudrik Shashtra ( body features , palms reading ) and astrology works much better than MBTI .
