Astrology is the study of planetary vibrations and how they affect human life. It is up to each one of us, however, to choose how we respond to the influence of these vibrations. We can always exercise our free will to respond either wisely or unwisely to the challenges and opportunities the planets bring to us.
Through the study of astrology, We will be able to understand ourselves better by helping us interpret our actions and reactions in life. When we can interpret the reasons behind how we respond to planetary radiations, then we can take a more active role in working with them, rather than automatically reacting to them. For this reason, astrology is both a science of observation Shastra and an art of interpretation. And it has as much to offer us now as when it first began 5000 years ago.
