"Astrology presupposes destiny. It is believed that at the time of birth of an individual, his/her, life pattern is determined. It is an ancient belief that all existence follows a pre-determined course, and man's life pattern can be determined through the study of planetary configuration present in the universe at the time of his birth. It is through deep meditation and intuitive sight of seers, they discovered that there is an order in the universe and all heavenly bodies, and life form on earth, as also the seasons and weather, follow a chartered course. A further study and probe led to the philosophy of astrology."
"It is believed that just like our voyage in life gets determined at our birth, similarly, the very time we elect to do anything, will determine its outcome. If life is pre-ordained then what role does 'free will' play. As long as man is tied down to his 'karma', he has to follow his destiny," says Uppal. "And as long as he is actively pursuing his objective, he will use his free will and choice to determine his path. The outcome of his actions may or may not be under his control, but it will always be his endeavor to do his utmost to achieve his desired goal."
