Jayapataka Swami: How much does it come true? You see, the astrological chart is what tells us what our birth karma is. We may change that by being a devotee. It may change, depending on how much you are surrendered. But also it depends on the astrologer. Because he may or may not even read the chart properly. So there are many factors. So the sum is that it shows the way that our birth influence is. We can change that by Krsna consciousness. In fact, the palm of your hand, it says the lines on the hand which is another way of telling one’s future. Astrologically we can change, by chanting Hare Krsna and clapping our hands. So, Srila Prabhupada said, well, we should take such readings with a grain of salt! They show the general direction, but they are not conclusive in themselves. Also, Canakya Pandit said that if some candidate, a minister, is too much dependent on astrology, he will not be a successful minister. So we just take it with a grain of salt. We understand to see what influences we have from birth but we may change that by Krsna consciousness. Hare Krsna!
