New breed of Internet and TV Astrologers
When a person asks me what i do and i tell them that i am an Astrologer, they say no no what u do. Ppl don’t take Astrology as profession seriously. I have thought seriously about this why they think that astrology cant be a profession. I just found one answer to this that it is because non serious and non professional people have entered this field, what i mean is ppl who have very little knowledge of even basics of Astrology have started showing up at TV Channels and Internet Sites and Social Media Sites like Facebook and promoting themselves as Astrologer. In this article we will try to focus how you can know whether the person sitting on a TV program or Facebook even know basics of Astrology or not. After all its your future who u are asking him and his answer may make u wrong decisions if he don’t know his art correctly.
I have been learning and experimenting with Astrology for last 22 years and have learnt all major Schools of Astrology from East and West and know so many internationally reputed good Astrologers from both sides everyday learn something new from them but still feel to learn more and more as there are so new many things to discover every day.
You may wonder who is promoting such foolish type of Astrology when u see everyday a new Internet astrologer or TV Astrologer who even don’t know the basics of either Western Astrology or Jyotish and represents himself all over the Internet or TV shows as a Master Astrologer to make fool of ppl. As i am myself an Journalist i know that TV Channels or Newspaper don’t care who is writing column or doing a program until their ratings is getting high and they are getting high rated advertisements. So in a view Media Industry is also to be blamed in this promotion of false image of Astrology.
There are so many categories of these people some only ask ur date of birth and instantly start answering ur questions answers. Others only ask ur name and ur mother name and start predicting ur future, some more are who only take ur date of birth and place of birth and start predicting ur future. There are some who even don’t bother to make any horoscope either and give direct answers, one person who used to do a program on our TV where i used to work and advised ppl about their Lucky Gem Stones and have a laptop in front of him and use to show off that he was making some calculations but in actual he was always staring at the blank screen this was told to me by ppl working in the recording studious. All these people are not real Astrologers and they even don’t know the basics of Astrology as no real astrologer will ever answer ur questions with the Time of ur Birth.
Then there is one more category which is very popular among our masses these days known as Peer Sahab or Baba ji. These Quacks have some Shudra type of Mantra Powers which have some powers attached to it and these powers read the mind of the client and tell the baba ji now baba ji predict all thier past accurately even the names of their father, mother, wife, even how many brothers, sisters he/she have. What job or Business he/she do and these make frauds in many types. In India they make fraud at the name of Nadi Astrology and in Pakistan on the name of spiritualism and Astrology. its a long story will some day write more on it also. Now these so called baba jis have also entered the TV shows and many of them like them to be called Astrologers.
I can name hundred of such ppl whom i have seen becoming Astrologers when they couldn’t survive in their Jobs or Bushinesses. Similarly i know so many other ppl who are in reality good Palmists but have become Astrologers as astrology is more popular these days than any other spiritual science.
I have seen so many cases from India that many Youngsters who came on some astrology groups or Facebook asking for some answer for them or some of their relatives within a year time they become professional Astrologers.
We should all condemn this type of astrology and try to know some info and credibility of knowledge of these persons before asking them important questions of our life. As one false prediction from their mouth can ruin ur life and i have so many practical experiences of it.
Finally concluding my musings on this subject i must clarify that i am not against these youngsters or their activities but i just want to advice these new young Internet Astrologers who practice Jyotish or Western Astrology to pls read Classical Jyotish books, Western Astrology books and other recently published books by some experienced Astrologers to understand things in clear way instead of posing that i know it all behavior and then try to understand properly the basics of Jyotish and Western Astrology under the guidance of some learned experienced Jyotishi and Astrologer thru making lot of practical charts and only then they should start giving predictions to other people. As this will not only bring good name and fame and of course wealth also to them but also give some credibility to this ancient science which is getting more defame because of their wrong predictions.
I may here add that a good Astrologer should have knowledge of both systems of Astrology that is Western Astrology and Jyotish as both compliment each other and add a lot of new knowledge for the Astrologer. Astrologer prime Job is to guide his Clients properly thru whatever matter he wants to discuss. Its my humble experience that only those Astrologers who have deep Knowledge from Both Schools are really v good Astrologers.
