Astrology is a belief system that claims to provide insight into human affairs and personality traits based on the positions and movements of celestial objects, such as the stars and planets. It has its roots in ancient civilizations and has been practiced in various forms throughout history. While astrology has been popular for many centuries, its scientific validity has been widely questioned. There is no scientific evidence to support the idea that the positions and movements of celestial objects have a direct influence on human affairs and personality traits. Moreover, studies have shown that astrological predictions are no more accurate than random chance.
Any knowledge base irrespective of how old it is is basically an observation recorded and documented by someone else’s mental endeavor. When any information/knowledge base is repeatedly studied and used as a baseline, it starts to take the form of TRUTH for those who have the curiosity to know but may have never taken the time to experience the creative power of their own mind or chose to apply their creative mind within the construct of the knowledge base.The Science of Astrology has too many variables to give an absolutely perfect answer to anyone’s queries, but it is a belief system that can be very hard to refute when a person who believes strongly in the science has experienced positive outcomes., the answer lies in the strength of the individual belief.
It is basically external observations and interpretations by someone else (a person of knowledge and authority – based on the configuration of stars when an individual was born and at the moment of inquiry). It does not leave anything with the individual, which I believe is the greatest aspect of astrology that many may find hard to accept.
Absolute respect towards the science of astrology and all the astrologers – it is a science that offers a belief system for a huge portion of the human population.
Aspects of Spiritual Wisdom.
Duality of Matter and Observers effect.
Einstein’s contributions to the understanding of the dual nature of light played a crucial role in the development of quantum mechanics and our understanding of the behavior of matter and energy on the smallest scales.
In quantum mechanics, the act of observing a system can affect the state of that system, including the behavior of light. This is known as the observer effect or the measurement problem. The observer effect arises from the fact that the act of measurement in quantum mechanics involves an interaction between the system being measured and the measurement apparatus, which can disturb the system and alter its state. For example, in the famous double-slit experiment, the act of observing which slit a photon passes through can change the interference pattern that it creates, indicating that the act of measurement has affected the behavior of the photon. The observer effect is a fundamental aspect of quantum mechanics, and it has been the subject of much debate and controversy. It challenges our classical intuition about the nature of reality and the role of the observer in the physical world.
All existential events can be described by an observer based on four aspects.
- Kal (Time)
- Sthana (Place)
- Paristithi (Situation) and
- Manstithi (Mindset)
Two observers at the same event will have different expressions of the feelings/ emotions they experienced because there are many individual factors and criteria for every individual to rate the experience, let’s just lump this together as the mindset. So, irrespective of what kal, sthana and paristithi remain the same for both the observers, the experiential observation will be driven by the mindset of the individual.
Psychology and observing to experience positivity. Psychology is the scientific study of the mind and behavior. Positive psychology is a branch of psychology that focuses on understanding and promoting positive feelings through emotions, behaviors, and traits.
The study of God is called theology. It is an academic discipline that seeks to understand the nature of God, the divine, and religious beliefs and practices. Theology is typically based on religious texts, traditions, and teachings, as well as philosophical and ethical considerations. It has not considered Psychology. The Greek meaning of psychology is “study of the soul” or “study of the psyche”. The word “psychology” is derived from the Greek words “psyche”, meaning soul or mind, and “logos”, meaning study or knowledge.
The Bhagwat Gita.
Chapter 16.1 of the Bhagwat Gita describes the virtues that humans should inculcate within themselves to experience their own divinity.

Spiritual Wisdom = knowing the duality of matter (this universe) + interpretation of existential events with a positive mindset + transmitting positive emotions + knowing that the spirit in all is ONE + practicing human virtues.
Spiritual Wisdom is individual wisdom that is greater than all knowledge.
