It is described in Hora sastra that the purpose of Astrology is to find out one's inborn tendancies and act as per the time by studying the planetary combinations so as to realise God; to reach the ultimate pupose of human life. But now a days the astrologers have made this divine science a way to make money by exploiting the fear factor in a human being.Astrology has lost the divinity and the people think that it is just superstiion because of such people.
Isn't it wrong?

then the system was the society provided everything the brahmin class wanted unasked...

respect,homage,togetherness,support,foodmatrialetc etc....

and they thus inspired used their pure energy in service of humanity....

where is people support now ....

everything is give and take....

and u all vainly speak things or complain ....

act respect someone truly knowledgeous as its to be as king Akbar did "he gave money for the brahmin as many gayatri he recited and the brahmin thus realised gayatri goddess herself and became above wants....

that is the attitude we need...

with love

Om Lokah: Samastah: Sukhino Bhavantu

My opinion is that professional astrologers should not be greedy! All their legitimate needs will be met by the divine power of this scince. They are Astrologers because they beleive in Astrology. Then, why don't they believe the first principle of Astrology that this knowledge should not be used for exploiting the people, or becoming greedy but this knowledge should be used for helping and guiding people to live their life peacefully. The power which send these people to an Asrologer is powerful enough to take care of the needs of the Astrologer also.

One becomes a Brahman not because of his birth in that community but because of his awareness of the self ! Such a man is respected by every one. They never use their knowledge to cheat people because they don't want anything from ouside to be blissfull. They know that they are bliss manifested. But now a days there are people who dress as a Brahman and exploit people, take advantage of their fear and amass wealth. In my opinion Astrology should not be used as a Profession. This divine science should be used as a helping aid to guide people to solve their problems ! The theory of Asrology says that one should not use this knowledge for any purpose other than helping people or leading a way of life towards self realisation.
If an Asrologer's needs are legitimate, then this science will provide him every thing needed for his life ! That is my experience. Only when an Astrologer lose control of his needs that he tries to exploit people. He is afraid of the future ! How can a person who is afraid of his future solve the future problems of other man ? A beleiver and practitioner of Astrology will be a fearless man because he is aware of the functioning of this creation.So they will no cheat .
