Q. I went to an astrologer to consult the prospects of my son’s wedding. He asked about my date of birth and told me that I would not live beyond 56 years. I am shattered. Can death be predicted? Will the prediction prove right? I was born at 2:10 pm on September 16, 1965.

A: Your star is Karthika. You had been through a bad patch of Kandakasani.

No one can predict death. But such predictions may have an effect on people who believe in astrology. That is not the effect of astrology. The believer leads himself to that prediction. If you take the astrologer’s word that you will die at 56 years, you will be forever haunted by that prediction.

Death is disturbing to everyone. You may be in a distressing situation. You may have lost your appetite and even your sleep. You cannot talk openly to anyone. All these are enough to make you sick. So do not let a random prediction come true. Come out of it.
