Astrology and blame!

Sri Sri Ravishankar (Art of Living) makes interesting listening, thanx to his wits, even for a non-follower. Here is the explaination he gives for Astrology.  Whenever, there is a problem the usual tendency of the people is to find someone/something to blame.  Astrology shifts the blame that you would put on other people to the cosmos.  In case of some loss you would say “because of the saturn being retrograde i had the loss”….listen to the video.

    Astrology can be used to blame, or even to make choices for you. Its too bad people take it so literally. I think it’s really just there to guide you. You know, to help you discover yourself. The more I read astrology the more I find useful things in it to incorporate into my life. You know when you read a horoscope that says something like “You’d be wise to try something new today”? Well reading that in itself, astrology or not, it just good advice. If I try something new and fail, would I blame astrology…nope. But I would have the life experience of trying something new, and that is worth something.

      True, I agree David. However, for a number of people it helps if they can ascribe failure to something outside themselves. Atleast temporarily, until they can regain confidence and get back to work.
