Astrologers are blamed for the confusions and arousing doubts in the minds of the people.”
“Astrology is always a prediction over the happenings with a scientific touch. Recently, the Sanskrit university started a certificate a certificate course in astrology and it received a great response. The actual problems crop up when astrologers appear on TV shows and give suggestions to the society. They need to keep an eye on professional values,” he added.
