The astrologer is a Redeemer !
Shaw talked about the redemption of the world through Beauty everlasting.
We are talking about the redemption of the world through Love everlasting.
And where does the astrologer come in ? He is the analyser of heavenly archetypes or horoscopes !
With is intuitive and analytical skill, he analyses the heavenly archetype. Said Aurobindo " The mystery of the lotus cannot be deciphered by analysing the mud below, but by analysing the heavenly archetype of the lotus that blooms forever in the heavens above ".
In the horoscope, the Lord has given an escape route to all. Many are tormented by the continuous web of life and the sorrow of the temporal. People turn to Astrology for comfort, to escape from the problems that overwhelm them. By finding out the primary causes that led to the suffering, the astrologer is doing divine service to all.
The Grand Law of Causation, the Law of Karma is the base of all that is. The Law of Cause and Effect, the Law of Retribution states that every effect has a cause. Once we analyse the causes, we can disern its repercussions. Identifying the villain of the piece in the horoscope and doing remedial measures for that planet can save the native from suffering.
The Lord is not like a shepherd
Or a Teacher in a class room
Whom He wants to redeem
Solution He shows in the native's mind !
Na devo yashtim adaya
Yam thu rakshathum ichchanti
Budhya Samyojayanti Tam
The Astrologer becomes the instrument of Redemption. His instrument !
