16 of 29 - Chiththirai (Chitra)
Now let us come to the "human" element of Astrology.
14. Doctor / Nurse notes down a wrong time – does that not make it Astrology totally wrong?
Answer: Yes, if the time is noted incorrectly, then the “paper horoscope” is wrong. The margin of tolerance in Navamsa chart is 4 minutes, I think (experts can contribute here). But the “actual” horoscope (your destiny) cannot be wrong! Hence, whatever “we think is right from the noted horoscope” is now wrong. That does not mean the event, which is unknown, is not going to happen.
The predictions based on the wrong horoscope will be incorrect. That is why great leaders say "do not be bogged down by horoscopes", let it not become "horror-scopes". For example, if the horoscope says you will be a crorepati & you put feet on table and expect the money to drop into your account, it may not – why? Because, it is possible that the time noted is wrong – and hence you have wasted time. So, do not take the prediction literally and face disaster.
In fact, it is quite possible that the horoscope says that you will while-away a lot of time, but the “wrong” horoscope guided you into doing the thing that you were destined for. In similar vein, do not foresee an accident during a “bad” period & live your life in worry! It is possible that the horoscope is wrong due to wrong time noted in it – and you may not have that accident at all, but end up wasting lot of time. That is the message from learned people. But it is not against astrology / horoscopes.
