Does Astrology Work? | Sadhguru

Sadhguru: Now I won’t go into all of this. Astrology – what is it that you’re trying to do? You’re trying to look at the positions of the planet
and make certain predictions, right? I want you to understand, most of the time, people who make good predictions are people who, you know, tell you about the past very clearly or some people tell you tomorrow
what’s going to happen very clearly. They’re not doing it looking at the planets,
they’re doing it looking at you. A certain intuitiveness is there
in a certain person, he says. You know, instead of teaching this yoga,
if I sit in Chennai and just predict people’s future, I will tell you in the next ten years exactly
what will happen in your life. Within three days, I will have a reputation
that half the Chennai will be standing in queue. Very easily, I can do that. But in the Yoga Center also, there are people who have been into so much sadhana,
they can do such things. If they ever do such things,
I will finish them (Few laugh). We won’t let them go on with that nonsense. We’ll immediately chuck them out of the place because by predicting somebody’s future,
you don’t alter the quality of his life in any way. You don’t bring any kind of true well-being. It is just, you know, you’re getting him
into more and more ignorance, isn’t it? Now if you have the power to know your tomorrow, you will only become more ignorant,
more egoistic, more stupid, more harmful. You go by the normal rules, it’s okay. You don’t have to know what’s tomorrow. You are made like this right now, the quality of your life and
your own way of being is such, if you know tomorrow today,
you will not participate in today, isn’t it? Yes or no? Suppose I tell you, “Whatever you do,
you’re not going to die,” you will do irresponsible things in the world. Or if I tell you, “Tomorrow morning, anyway you will die,” now you won’t participate in today, isn’t it? So, you should not know the future. It’s not necessary for you to know the future. Can somebody predict? Yes, sometimes. But that’s not hundred percent. It’s never hundred percent. Every object has a certain influence on you. See right now, this vessel – because of its shape and its material, it has a certain
influence, it has a certain vibration emanating from it. If I allow this vessel to influence me… I keep him next to me because he’s quite a good friend. I’m not keeping a plastic pot because
I don’t like his… the things that he says. I keep this one because, you know,
it’s saying pleasant things. I’m always in good company, please see (Laughs). But now, if I allow this vessel to influence me too much,
slowly I will become like a vessel. This will happen to you. Many people have become like vessels, isn’t it? (Laughs) Haven’t they? They will let things influence them so deeply,
they will become like that. Now I won’t let this copper vessel to influence me. But being in my company, he is so influenced. You will see, you take another copper vessel
– you give me anything, right now you give me any object,
just give it to me for twenty seconds. I’ll hold it in my hand and give it back to you. It will be different. If you’re sensitive, you can feel it is distinctly different. So, the question is just this – will you allow objects
to influence you or will you influence the objects? The planets definitely are large objects,
so they have certain vibrations, they have some influences on everything around them. If they’re close to this planet, yes. Do you know, on pournami and amavasya days
– full moon day and new moon day days – people who are little mentally disturbed
or imbalanced, become much more imbalanced? Yes? Even the ocean is going crazy, isn’t it? Do you all go crazy twice a month (Few laugh)? Some of you are not saying anything (Laughter). Participant: We have not observed. Maybe we are going crazy, we have not observed. Sadhguru: Okay. Twice a month if you’re going crazy,
you would have observed (Laughter). Anyway, please ask your family,
they will tell you (Laughter). Now, compared to that person who has an imbalanced mind,
you are much more stable, much more established. Wherever the moon goes, you don’t go crazy. If you’re much more established, wherever
any planet goes, you don’t go crazy, that’s all. The purpose of your life, the destiny of your life
is fixed by you and nothing else but you. Yes, everything has an influence. But what you make out of that influence
is still yours, isn’t it? But if you’re going to be pushed around
by inanimate objects, yes, you can be pushed around. To that extent, it is true. I’m saying, when the divine is functioning within you, when the creator is functioning within you, why are you allowing inanimate things
to influence your life (Applause)? If you… If you allow this dimension to flower in you,
you will see life happens fantastic. Let the stars go anywhere, let the planets go anywhere,
you will go only where you want to go. You want to go where you want to go or you want to be pushed around
by inanimate objects? You must decide that. Now, they’re writing it in horoscope and
giving it to you, how you’re going to live. Please tell me, if there is an
intelligent person in this room, can you predict what he will do the next moment? He may do something that
nobody has ever done, isn’t it? If there is a fool here, if you look at him,
you can say, “Okay, this is how you will live.” If they have to write it on paper and give you, that this is the way you will live, what to do (Laughs)? That means you’re refusing
to use your intelligence, isn’t it?

  • Deb Roy says:

    True…and this astrology hampered my life… whatever he said I feel I was better before going for astrology…I have become a vessel for some time…now I don't care what is there in future…it really hampers u and u ll live life like that…I have seen many people doing this and forcing others to go for astrology…please don't do it…it's upto their wishes…I was also being forced and my life changed and I was not what I was before…it affects u very badly…if something doesn't work as said then it will be like horror for days months years…I not telling it's bad…some people find their way by knowing what is going to happen and prepare for that…
    It's just like a cheat…like in games if u know which level is hard and where and how can you overcome…you will win but u can't have fun playing it.
    Please I also suggest people who follow astrology not to force others.
    There are some people who love to live the life in their way battling it without knowing the past or future…let it be…they will find a way how to move on..

  • Heather Saker says:

    an excellent talk on external authorities but outside of India astrology functions for many other things than allowing a man to tell you your future. astrological wisdom has been expanding human consciousness for thousands of years. by learning it, by learning your relationship with the harmony of all of life …I find that many ppl in the west benefit from this type of understanding that is very much in accordance with swadhaya and many other beautiful paths to knowing the truth of who you are. Reducing it to a guy in chennai who wants control over others is a mistake. prognostication is very narrow , but this is not the whole of astrology. It is reducing astrology to a fear based religious application…it is up to the consciousness level of the practitioner, like anything else.

  • Vidya Babla says:

    Will you allow the objects to influence you or will you influence the objects ?
    Sadhguru clarifies : Choose horoscope predictions and get pushed around by inanimate objects all around or use your intelligence and go where you want to go.

  • Shantanu Shekhar says:

    With all the respect to sadhguru.. I can't help but wonder what he actually means when he makes these fantastical claims about influencing the object by his touch..

    It does not sit well with me.. Maybe I don't get the finer point but does he want to imply he is someone who can alter physicality of objects/being with his touch..

    If yes then is the putting himself in the realm of some fantastical God.?

    Again I mean no disrespect.. I just follow him closely.. I am in isha yoga.. But I hv an open mind and I like to question.

    Astrology does NOT predict the future . It reveals gravitational trends and opportunities NOT absolutes. I makes you aware of your abilities to ACT in the proper time window which will always close again. Facility and difficulties are the main reveals…

  • vinayak gosavi says:

    Not at all agree with Sadguru' s theary. Astrology is a defferent directed subject, not used properally by non scientific astrologer. So pepole are suffered.
    As per my reseach, chemical purity & quantity in the brain is found relation with planets. Even Sadguru has been sent for the special purpose on the earth. If you see HIS horoscop, the Sanyas yog & super divine achivement will be clearlly found.
    In short Our Rhushi muni where great scientist. We can't ignore. I request, Sadguru should find out the perfect science of brain chemicals. So He can give new direction to Astrology.
