Since ancient times , good astrologers have been recognized as among the best advisors. Chanakya Pandita (circa 1550 BC) has said that every king should have ministers to guide him:
“The royal astrologer should know reading , writing , and arithmetic, explain well and interpret secrets of planets.”And , “The brahmana who knows mathematics, interpret scripts, is interested in the ancient scriptures , and is able to interpret the secrets of planets, is worthy of worship like a god”
And finally Varaha Mihira said:
“ There is no better boat than a horoscope to help a man cross over the troubled sea of life.” Though you may not be a king , you can still avail yourself of good astrological counsel to help you plan your life.
