Counseling, Predictive and Advisory Models: Assessing Karma of Both Client and Astrologer

Counseling, Predictive and Advisory Models: Assessing Karma of Both Client and Astrologer

  • Product Details

  • Additional Information

  • The talk will address the karmic implications of being a Vedic astrologer. There is a tremendous karmic responsibility in giving chart readings. We can greatly help others with good advice but can mislead them if our advice is not accurate, or if we try to make decisions for them.

    While it is helpful to indicate general trends, to predict specific events has karmic risks for both the client and the astrologer. 

    We should also not promise too much through gems and other upayas as this has its karmic downside as well.

    We should function as helpful friends and counselors, encouraging karmic responsibility and sattvic living.
