In the current time, the astrology as an academic course and profession has seen a resurgence.
People from across age groups and academic backgrounds have developed interest in the science and is doing wonders in the same.
Astrology may be defined in simplest manner as study of the positions and movements of the stars and planets and the way that some people believe they affect people and events.
In my personal view, Astrology is a way to live life; it is a way to transform human ecosystem and re-evolve the lifestyle.
In this series of write up, I will be talking about what is takes to learn astrology and from where to learn.
Learning Astrology requires three important pillars and each of these pillars are equally important in the journey.
The three pillars of learning astrology can be visualized as three legs of a three-leg stool, where each leg is equally important and any defect in any one leg may affect complete balance of stool.
Three Important Pillars of Learning Astrology (any occult science)
- Practice & Observation
- Intuition (Divine Blessing)
All these three important pillars are tied together by determination & will power of learning and supplemented by destiny of learner.
- This is the first step ladder of this journey, and this can be gained from teachers, institutes, and books.
- Quite often, a healthy blend of all these is essential to strike a good balance.
- The learning journey is most often needed to be personalized as per requirement and learning needs of learner.

India is a land where the science has been run into families for generations and numerous people have learnt it from ancestors.

The first ladder, knowledge contributes 30% in this journey. The Next 30% is contributed by self-practice and observation. It is essential to practice and apply the learning on real time cases and have keen eye and attention to detail for every pattern being encountered in this journey.
Intuition (Divine Blessings)
Until now, we have talked about 60% of pie; the next 30% is contributed by Intuition and this is very essential to give a shaped & direction to previous 60%. A general myth is one need to take sannyasa or go to mountain to attain this, however many greats of modern-day world has successfully proven that this can be achieved in family life as well. However, one just need to move in right direction with believe and patience.
