Very often it is asked as to what is the use of astrology? Can the malefic result of planets be glozed? According to me, a man starts from home with an umbrella if he knows that it will rain today. He cannot prevent the rain but he can save himself to some extent with the umbrella. Likewise, we try to lessen the malefic effect of the harmful planets by Tantra, Mantra, Yantras, gems, worship or Jap if we know by Astrology that the period ahead is not auspicious.
