Why does prediction get changed from one astrologer to another, and is there any chance that, with time, predictions could change?

Because astrologers change.

So let me reveal a secret, most of the times we can see a good or a bad period as per the Planets.

As a general rule 90% of people look for astrologers during a Rahu, Ketu, or a Saturn period (go check for yourself). As these three rule all the pains of humanity. Others don’t match their severity.

Now by and large most astrologers worth their salt would tell you that period from XXX to YYY dates would be a good one, and from AAA to BBB would be a bad one. Till here there should be no contradiction, if there is, one of the astrologers is not doing a good job.

Then the more specific you would go, the more differences would appear depending upon the approach and experience of the astrologers. E.g. a small town old school astrologer would tell you that you are going to hit a dasa of your 10th lord which is exalted…you are going to get a GOVERNMENT JOB…!

If you go to someone who is a little more new age, and uses LOGIC, answer would be different.

I often get hate mails from government job aspirants because I would ask them do you belong to a general category, if the answer is “Yes” I would say “sorry no government job for you… you would get into BUSINESS….

Now people kick and scream and they tell me how hard they have tried and how passionate they are and all that, but truth is truth, they don’t have much of a chance.

Similarly every astrologer has a different set of tricks and a different kind of expertise (e.g. I am passionate about Rahu Ketu and shani…others simply bore me J)

I have written a 3000-4000 word article on Rahu Ketu dasas that were well received. Others might excel at Jupiter and Venus, some others may be focused on Sun and Mars.

Like doctors, we all have our basics in place, we just have different specializations. We excel at our favorite subjects and that’s where we would focus.

Another thing, predictions would and should change. The first rule of astrology is DESH KAAL PARISTHITI (Place, Time, Circumstances). Someone with a good 10th house in USA will most probably become an entrepreneur, while someone with a good 10th house with Afghanistan may become a war lord.

Then there is your current Karma, if you have yogas for diabetes but you are thin and you tell me that you run a mile daily, i would say that you have little chance of diabetes.

So keep in mind two things:

Specialty and exposure of the astrologer and DESH KAAL PRAISTHITI.

Hope this explains.

  1. At least someone (part of a definite minority) has the courage to speak up that Desh Kaal Patra (or The Context as one of my favourites say) is the important thing while reading a chart. I often get perplexed how so-called astrologers just look at a horoscope and start predicting immediately about career and relationships even without knowing the age or context, and defend it with divine insights. I have actually tried this with a few and a pure homemaker was predicted with problems from jealous colleagues which would force “him” to change “his” job. And after I revealed it to be a happily married housewife with 2 kids, it turned out that suddenly the birth details provided were incorrect :). God save them!!

    1. thank you for your kind words.

      To be HONEST I have had my share of failures too. I have had cases where i wasn’t able to read the chart properly.

      However, as per my ethics I gave a refund along with an apology.

      1. Exactly my point Sir!

        You ARE different.. with your 9th lord in asc, aspected by a benefic moon, you can’t go against your ‘dharma’ (9H) even if you wanted to. And obviously we are blessed to have you.

        But that’s besides the point. Anyone (including astrologers, doctors, CAs) can have an odd bad day and miss a few points. With the correct context, DKP, it can be sorted easily.

        However, an astrologer is first and foremost a counselor/guide/mentor. It really does not matter if a prediction of the past went off target. What matters is the encouragement of “acche din aane wale hai” and the coaching to prepare for it.

        And it is here Sir, where people like you have come on this planet to make a difference in the lives of lesser mortals like us.

        DISCLAIMER: Am not a client of Vijay Ji and have primarily known him through this blog and of course Quora earlier. So this is no veiled attempt at promotion, he does not need it. Period.

  2. Dear Sir, Thank you for writing in in an enlightening manner where it makes astrology simple to understand for someone not familiar in this subject.

    Could you kindly give your views where different astrologers/software provides a different start/beginning date for a Mahadasha; eg for Saturn Mahadasha, astrologer A would put 30-10-2018 as the start date whereas astrologer B puts start date as 30-12-2018. Similarly different astrologers who put the position of the planets different; eg astrologer C would place Saturn, Jupiter and Ketu in House #4 and astrologer D would place Saturn, Jupiter and Sun in House #4. In all four instances, the Lagna is in Libra. Than you.

    1. i believe that in the age of software, doing manual calculations is useless and waste of human effort as well as increasing risk of making a wrong horoscope. One should get a horosocope prepared by a good software and avoid manual calculation, i don’t care how good you are, you cant beat a calculator, let alone a computer when it comes to math.

      Astrologers should stick to READINGS only. Preparing horoscopes should be left to software.
