Life is like a programmed computer game. You are given the weapons that you choose at different stages. This is like acquiring different skills in life that help us to walk our paths. If we choose wrong weapons, we will fail early. If we choose a different path at a crossroad, we will also face different enemies. The weapon used to defeat the enemy may be different. We have our choice.
Astrology can tell us what we may encounter at different stages of our lives. It does not, however, predict when we will die. It does not even predict whether we can beat our enemies and have good achievement. We are in our own hands, in other words.
A good astrologer can tell you what you will have to deal with at different stages of your life. He will tell you what weapons to choose to effectively overcome difficulties and achieve high in life. He will also tell you what to avoid and what to follow in order to live a meaningful life. But he will not tell you when you will get married, divorced, sick and die. Instead, he may tell you when you will meet your loved one and whether or not your marriage will be enjoyable. Then it helps you to decide whether or not to get married or just enjoy a sweet but not lasting relationship without commitment. He will also tell you which parts of your body are vulnerable to illness and when it is most dangerous.
Astrology, Yijing Divination, Qi Men Dun Jia are all such constructive systems. They help us to go in the right direction in life to have the most beneficial results. Unfortunately, all these systems are abused by most people to treat them as fortune telling systems. It brings them down to a worthless level.
