Covid 19 Update:
No astrologer or astrological tool, including this AI-based engine, had foreseen the unprecedented pandemic caused by the novel coronavirus.
 
However, many experts were expecting large scale natural disasters to rock humanity. This is because the two most dreaded planets, Saturn and Pluto meet (conjuncts) at 22°46' Capricorn.
 
This is a rare cosmic influence, that impacts entire mankind, and should be over by February 2021. Astrologically, good fortunes shall prevail from 20th December 2020, when Jupiter meets Saturn - known as the "Great Conjunction".
 
Until then, be safe, and keep your loved ones safe.
 
How adverse is this influence for you?

Facts, Myths & Evils of Astrology Facts, Myths & Evils of Astrology Facts, Myths & Evils of Astrology

Gravitational impacts of planetary bodies play havoc with our body fluids, especially those in our brain, and influence our emotions. This is the base of astrology, and the art lies in approximating a possible event to match the "emotions in play".
 
Similar to the analogy that we do not get insanely happy just because of the influence of planets, we do not act by the influence of planets. In other words, astrology never compels. The planets never force us to do anything, and actions remain a matter of choice - from individual to individual.
 
Blessed with a sense of empathy, righteousness and ethics, humans differ from other animals because we have the ability to analyze and act according to choices. Astrology, or any influence of planets, cannot and should not be blamed or made an excuse for any misconduct, and improper behaviour or action.
 
Simply put, we cannot steal or commit murder, or any other nuisance under the pretext of planetary influences. We always have choices, and the ability to overcome the urges that planetary influences bring to us. The biggest evil of astrology is perhaps the escapist mindset that comes with it.
 
We should discourage any tendency to make such pretexts to disown the responsibility of our actions, or to justify our conduct.
 
It also goes without saying that: what goes around, comes around! "Karma", or past deeds and actions, play an important role in our lives. As the planets transit in a circular motion, time and again one shall face his/her karma, and tried by the consequences.
 
Apart from that, every Zodiac Sign and planetary configuration comes with a mix of positive and negative traits. No position is all good and no bad, and vice versa. Forming opinions about an individual based on his/her Sun Sign is another evil that plagues the field of astrology.
 
Based on their Zodiac Signs, we often tend to stereotype people - including potential partners, friends, co-workers, relatives, or even roommates. These are Sun Signs, which are good indicators of people's general disposition. However, the Sun Sign is only a small part of an individual's Birth Chart. Therefore it amounts to painting a picture without having all the required colours. Every individual is different, and we need to know complete information of all planets and their positions in Signs and Houses before painting the complete picture about him/her.
 
Stereotyping people is in itself a bad practice. And to do it, based on mere Sun Sign, is not only illogical, but also shows our lack of understanding about astrology and its complex system.
 
Life is full of experiences, and one risks missing out on most of it, when he/she is biased towards particular Zodiac Signs, and refuses to engage with people of those Signs.
 
We should not try to wield astrology to find patterns and/or judge other people.
 
Astrology is not, and cannot be used as a tool for dismissing people or experiences, or a scapegoat on which to blame one's problems and decisions, or an excuse to justify our actions.
 
And most importantly, no planetary influence compels us to act, and we still have our free will to choose what we do. The cosmos provides a beautiful map and guide, but it is us who are the ultimate decider of our fates.
