Jayapataka Swami: Srila Prabhupada when he was told that some astrologer would give a reading, he would say, “I will take it with a grain of salt”. He would not depend purely on astrology to make a decision. He would take it with a grain of salt. He would take it with some reservation. But he would decide based on a number of practices. Astrology was maybe the least. Also different astrologers interpret the different things differently. So one has to hear from several astrologers and see if they all agree. In Canakya’s Artasastra, he said that in choosing a minister, someone who is too dependent on astrology, would not make a good minister. So you can see what is the astrological influence but should decide what to do, based on whatever is better for your Krsna consciousness. Hare Krsna.
