The biggest criticism for astrology has
come from the so called neo rationalists who have termed astrology as a medium of escapism and negative thought. The group of people who have attacked astrology have been those who have questioned the validity of the science with regard to the success rate of the predictions. The time has come now when genuine astrologers must attack these neo rationalists with regard to their scientific predictions.

Let us begin with the climate and
weather forecasts. The Met offices all over the world fail to accurately predict the climate and weather conditions year after year. They have all the required devices, latest state of the art equipment, highly qualified researchers and still it is a disaster when it comes to forecasting. In spite of their poor record, they remain highly motivated when it comes to having respect from society and they are hailed as intellectuals.

On the contrary, look at the limitations of
an astrologer as a forecaster.

For starters, they
have to depend on the birth time which is not always accurate. Then look at the appalling resources available to them. Of course, the astrological community must happily put their hand up and accept that there is a large number of quack astrologers, with no moral or technical power but that is a dilemma faced by every community the most prominent amongst them being doctors.

The biggest handicap is the lack
of self respect for an astrologer in society. It is a very nerve racking situation for the genuine astrologer and hardly motivating. Against this backdrop let us look at a recent prediction and let us appreciate the greatness of the science that is astrology.

In September 2007, it was predicted that
the Roger Federer era would end. Let us spare a thought and look at the courage behind the prediction.

" Roger was still the number one player
as per the WTA rankings when this prediction was made.

" Followers of tennis would know that Roger's strong in the second half of the
Grand Slam season beginning with grass. So it was not a case of predicting during a time when Roger was expected to fare badly.

" The first major grand slam to be played after the prediction was French Open and it was not that Roger was defeated, but instead he was mauled. " Roger never lost so badly at clay and the prediction about the beginning of his end becomes more respectable "

But the beauty of the prediction came on grass on which Roger is king. Suddenly he lost his supremacy and weaknesses began
to creep in his grass court play.

On both occasions his opponent was Nadal. Look at the limitations of the astrologer. We do not even have the horoscope of Nadal.

It is the greatness of astrology that such
predictions are possible to make even when we don't have any information about both contestants in a sporting contest.

For budding astrologers
it is a lesson in the importance of the dasha chiddra and as soon as the dasha changed we could see the changes. The forehands going wide and the volleys going in the net.

However, we must also notice the period
of Mercury in the twelfth house, sure it is that of retirement but what about Roger the businessman. Mercury is the 2nd and 11th lord.

For now, can we just sit back and marvel at the
accuracy of astrology and its superb power to predict.

Yes, there are dirty and murky astrologers
who give the subject a bad name just like the doctor who operates on the wrong leg by default.

Where are the so called neo intellectual
scientists with their repeatedly flop predictions? Bring them on.

Get over it, it's Kali Yuga
Not to be pessimistic but it's kali yuga. I don't think Raoji should really waste his time trying to defeat the rationalists anymore. I think his time would be better spent writing on the various secrets of Jaimini astrology as well as the astrology of spirituality.

Moreover, those who have enough pious merits (sukritis) from previous lifetimes of good deeds and sadhu-seva will automatically have faith in the vedas and their corollaries the vedangas, one of which is Jyotish. To try and convince people who simply do not have the sukrti to understand these sacred sciences is a waste of time and futile. God will guide those who are sincere to the right place.

Personally, while the sports atricle does have an audience, I sincerely would like to see more of the secrets of Jyotish dealing with spirituality and the lives of saints rather then read about Fedrer. I wish Rao could write a sequel to his books Yogis, astrology and the wheel of time -- His best book in my opinion. Perhaps he could share with us some of the pastimes of the contemporary sadhus and saints among us instead of leaving us wishing and dreaming for those yogis and saints of yore.
