Astrology has been an essential aspect of human life since ancient times. It is the study of the planets’ prediction about a person or the world. In earlier periods, kings would not venture out to war without consulting astrologers. Though scientists proudly claim that science has taken the world by storm, astrology continues to be a crucial part of human life.
Even in the 21st century, astrology has carved its niche. Renowned astrologers claim that there is a relationship between astrology and science. Many ancient astrologers like Nostradamus have left behind scrolls containing their astrological predictions. Archaeologists have unearthed the manuscripts, and linguists have deciphered them. To the surprise of the masses, most of these predictions have come true.
Surprisingly, Nostradamus predicted World War II. Modern astrologers claim that they make astrological predictions based on scientific calculations. This remote branch of science originated in Babylon and had gradually made its way to other parts of the world. The life of man has been guided by astrology since birth. Let us take a look at the birth chart followed by astrologers:

Let’s find the importance of astrology in our daily lives.
Importance of Astrology in Daily Lives
Astrology may lead to a better life when used constructively. Decades of research reveal that astrology can guide people with their career and family life.
In the 21st century, people are concerned about their job. Government jobs no longer have a monopoly over people. Also, the rate of dissatisfaction with their current job position is on the rise. So, people consult astrologers to find out whether they will get a job and if it is feasible to change their career. Astrologers point out that a person may get a high profile job if they have a robust planetary position. The Sun plays a vital role for those who are seeking government jobs. On the contrary, the person will get a private job if the placement of the Sun in the natal chart is not secure.
Astrology also plays an important role related to career change. Many people are unable to cope up with the pressure of their current job. The tremendous pressure makes them eager for a job change. So, they communicate with an astrologer to know if the job change is feasible. The astrologers say that it is vital to calculate the Mahadasha, Antardasha and favorable transits for a desirable job transit.
What does the planetary position suggest?
The Saturn, Ketu, and Rahu may be advantageous when they transit over the 3rd, 6th and 11th house. Transit of Jupiter in the 2nd, 5th, 7th, 9th, and 11th house is favorable. The result is more evident when the Mahadasha, Antardasha and favorable transits coincide.
Many suspicious incidents occur during the planetary period of Rahu and Ketu. Rahu and Ketu are planets that do not have their own houses. Rahu is an evil planet that causes harm in the house where it is placed. Both Rahu and Ketu provide results according to the lordship of the other worlds they occupy. Thus, astrologers check the conditions of Rahu and Ketu before they offer astrological solutions.
Venus is a beneficial planet that signifies marriage, creativity and romance. In case Venus is malefic, the afflicted person may face trial in love. Such a person will marry late in life.
The 2nd house indicates wealth. The 10th house indicates a job, career and profession. So, there are high chances of getting a break in career during the significant period and sub-period of the 10th house.
The 6th house is the house of competition. The 9th house is called fate and fortune. Thus, during the 6th lord in the birth chart, it is easier to get a job by competing. The 11th house indicates a source of income.
In this era of recession, all hell breaks loose if a person loses his job out of the blue. In such cases too, some people appeal to the astrologer for a way out.
Also, it guides employers to select the correct employees. Last but not least, astrology helps people understand how others can react in different situations.
Many yogas (planetary combinations) have the power to make us affluent. According to Indian astrology, Gajakesari Yoga and Panchmahapurush Yoga are most potent. An online reading session predicts about these yogas.
