Astrology and Numerology are two different subjects. Astrology is studying planets, movement of planets and their influence on human lives. It is related to Astronomy. Numerology, on the other hand, is about studying of numbers and their influence on human lives. Though both are different in many ways they are related as well.
In India Astrology is called “Jyothish” which means the science of light. Some people consider Astrology as a science as it uses facts of Astronomy. Some people will disagree with this and tag Astrology as an art. Some may even think, it as just a crap.
However, Astrology had been used all over the world for thousands of years. Western Astrology and Indian Vedic Astrology are different. Western Astrology is based on Sun’s position in relation to the Earth. Vedic Astrology focuses on 12 zodiac signs, 27 stars, and 9 planets. The western chart is round in shape and the Vedic chart has a square shape.
Why is Astrology so popular?
Man always wants to know what the future has in store for him. This curiosity to know about the future keeps Astrology popular. Many people want to consult Astrologers to know about their future. Let it be a famous politician, famous industrialist, celebrity, common man or even scientist, all want to consult Astrologers to know about the future. Astrology is taught as a subject in some Universities in developing countries like India and also in a developed country like the USA.
Indian Astrology is truly great. As per Vedic Astrology, the exact time of birth determines the life of a person. In other words, your whole life pattern is determined at the time of your birth. All the planets influence man on Earth. You can feel the hot Sun rays but you can’t feel the influence of other planets.
As per Vedic Astrology, at the exact time of your birth, if the planets are in favorable positions, you will enjoy a happy life with good fortunes, good health, long life, and fame. If you are born at a time, when the planets are in bad positions, then your life will be a failure. So, your exact time of birth is the key to your success or failure in life.
Numbers do play a big role in our lives. Numbers are everywhere and you can’t live without numbers. When you get up at 6 o clock, the number 6 comes in and then till you retire to bed, you come across numbers several times in your daily life.
Numerology numbers can influence your life. Your date of birth can tell something about your characters and your future. Numerology can help you to find your lucky numbers, lucky colors, lucky metals, and lucky names.
Use of astrology and Numerology
You can use Astrology to know about your future because it is more accurate. You can use Astrology to know about the remedies that should be used to overcome the bad effects of planets in your life.
On the other hand, you can use Numerology to choose the right name for your baby(names have some impact on human life), to find your lucky numbers, lucky colors and lucky metal.
Scope of Astrology
You can know about your future using Astrology. You can know about your good times and bad times with the help of it. Suppose if you have a good time for the next 3 years, then you can take a few risks in your business. If you have a bad time then you can be extra careful during that period. You can drive more safely, avoid taking risks in business and so on.
Another advantage of using Astrology is using remedies to minimize ill effects during bad periods of life. A good Astrologer can prescribe you the right remedies to reduce the bad effects during the bad time predicted by the Astrologer.
Scope of Numerology
You can use Numerology to choose the right name for your baby. Sound has positive or negative effects. If you have a good name, when many people call you, you get positive vibrations and that will do good in your life. Similarly, a bad name can harm your life.
You can use Numerology for your name correction. You can change your name and get good results. You can use your lucky numbers in many areas in your life and get benefits.
Limitations of Astrology and Numerology and What it Means
You can’t fully rely on Astrology to make important decisions in your life. Astrology predictions may fail. It does not mean Astrology fails. However today we don’t have an Astrologer who can give you 100% correct predictions.
In ancient India during the Veda period, great Astrologers like Agasthiya, Aryabhatta, Varahamihira, and Pulipani were able to give the best predictions. In the present days, we don’t have that kind of great Astrologers. Nostradamus seems to be the best Astrologer of recent times. Today we can use Astrology as a guide and reference but can’t make important decisions based on Astrological predictions.
Astrology can be used to know about your future. You can also use Astrology to know about the remedies to be used to minimize the bad effects during your bad period of life. However, you should not make important decisions based only on Astrology. You can just refer Astrology as a guide and make decisions taking into account the other important factors. You can use Numerology to choose a lucky name for you, to choose lucky metals, lucky numbers, and lucky colors.
