Can anyone tell me who started this astrology? I am confused to believe somebody can predict someone else's future through astrology. We indians are superstitious as everyday we experience it. People see time for doing a good deal as they avoid Rahukala. In south, tuesdays and wednesdays are considered as inauspicious where as in Western india like maharashtra and gujrat they consider these days as auspicious. Now whom to believe? I dont understand how a stone can change someone's luck or future? Some also follow numerology and name their spellings with extra K or any alphabet. Since alphabets are created by humans how these can bring in luck? Some also follow Vastu shastra. facing south will bring in failure and facing north will bring prosperity. Who has created this and what is the proof of this? I dont understand why we give so much of importance to such beliefs? Do foreigners also have such kind of beliefs? I know about feng sui, Santa claus gifts. I always believe one's own decision is the root cause of Success. If a person is good in making decisions supported by talent and hardwork , he/she will succeed. Any comments?

Kudos, Sri Sameer for placing your rational views so forthrightly amidst such Indians who believe it is the stars that shape their destiny and not their hard & sincere work and determination. Pl also try to find out if any Nobel Prize or Olympic medal has ever been won through astrological predictions. Alas! people like you are in absolute minority.

Astology ,Palmistry,Numerology,Gemmology do not become scientific even if some westerners believe in them. I consulted three self styled futurologists a decade ago and each suggested a different stone different lucky number and different career. All proved WRONG.

astrology is just time pass and doesnt have any relevance in case of fruitfull or fruitless achievments. It just to make some one happy that this might have happened due to bad or good time in the birth charts

We have been living in a house facing south for 30 years without wearing any of these stones and by our yardstick have been very prosperous in life. In today's information age, there is too much information available to everyone and not all of it needs to be heeded. It is an attempt to play on people's minds, instil fear to achieve business goals. This is nothing but advertising.
