Good for What?

Yeah, what is it good for?

Is that even a serious question?

Can one even ask such a question wrt Astrology?

Ok, I’m asking it.

Do I feel silly?

No.

Why am I asking it?

I want to know.

Why do I want to know?

I want to know, because I’m not using Astrology for money and I’m not using it for fame – so what is it doing in my life?

I can say that it found me. Yeah, I wasn’t even looking for it. It found me, grabbed me, and didn’t let go.

So, that’s where we stand.

I do teach it, subconsciously.

I mean, every Astrology interaction I have with someone who needs help has some kind of a teaching effect.

Oh, forgot, I help people with it.

Not everyone. Sometimes, one just doesn’t have the energy. Sometimes, one does. Then, one helps.

What is all this getting me?

Recognition?

No.

Kalyuga doesn’t care much for a background Astrologer who doesn’t blare his or her own trumpet. Didn’t want that kind of recognition anyways.

Satisfaction?

Yes.

Astrology adds more satisfaction to my life.

Eventually, one starts to see strands of Karma in the chart. One sees why, and why not. Karma dynamics gives one direction. It tells one where one stands in the scheme of things. All this is meaningful and satisfying.

Is that enough for me?

Yes, hmmm, no perhaps. In Germany, they’d say “jein“, as in ja + nein, as in a combination of yes and no. Yeah, my answer is jein.

What’s missing?

Oh, totally forgot, the writing part. I like writing, and I like Astrology, so I write about Astrology.

Writing about Astrology is a creation of goodness.

Writing helps.

Writing teaches. It teaches me too, because my thoughts get evened out, and understanding gets deeper. Writing is also a dialogue with oneself.

Anything else, Mr. Nath?

Well, I do fancy lecturing when I retire, but that’s some time away.

Nothing else.

Astrology is a great friend to have.

Metamorphosis

It is said that every 7 years, each cell in the human body is a new one. 

In other words, in seven years, the human body is completely overhauled. 

Also, there is a nervous focal point in one’s palm that is directly connected to the breath. This focal point directly affects the lines of the palms. Thus, these lines are indirectly affected by how we breathe. Translation from breath to line takes 7 years. Thus, one’s palm lines show how one’s been breathing (living) over the last 7 years. 

Overhaul doesn’t cut it. 

Metamorphosis is a better word. 

We evolve. 

Devolution is never really far away. Just a D separates it from evolution. However, we are watchful. We evolve.

Most of the stuff written below in this space – well – was written way back in 2003. 

It was languishing. 

On a whim, I decided to upload it in 2014. 

I didn’t write on Astrology between 2003 and now. 

Yesterday, I started writing on Astrology again. 

You will, of course, see the difference in styles immediately. 

This is a prime example of metamorphosis.

I’ve struggled over the last 14 years. 

If you go by what above analogies are saying, I’ve overhauled twice in this time. 

Therefore, output today will definitely be different. 

These are not 2 different people physically, but mentally, yes, these are 2 different people writing. 

🙂

Evolution is one side-effect of struggle. 

Words flow. 

I don’t have to look for them. 

They just come. 

There’s a golden rule for words. 

When they come, let them flow. 

Don’t stop them, for heaven’s sake. 

Hence, here they are. 

Bear with me. 

🙂
