Speculating about with future is a preoccupation with most. Why is living in the present so difficult? Why do we always want to know what the future holds? Why is it nearly impossible to cultivate the patience required to wait and watch as life unfolds its plans for us? Isn’t that what everyone advices us? To live in the present is to be truly happy. We even have a song that tells us “whatever will be , will be, the future’s not ours to see”. And yet the urge to see goes beyond the boundaries of rational thought. We may intellectually know we should worry about the future, but it doesnt stop us from doing exactly that!
No matter how blurred our long-distance vision may be, we know for a fact that our future is going to be a mixed bag of good, bad and downright ugly. Why then, do we have to know what exactly the good, bad and ugly is going to be? Is it because we don’t like the unknown? And that we feel more in control if we know what’s going to happen? Whatever it is, it sure makes taking up Astrology a very profitable profession!! I am buying myself a stack of books and making a professional shift. I shall be a self-taught astrologer.

NB: When I started this post the skies were overcast, the weather gloomy and my mood serious. Somewhere towards the end, the caffine from my hot cuppa coffee kicked in and the mood improved considerably. Hence the strange twist.Please adjust. I promise to keep the mood of the next post uniform all through. As a parting shot, let me ask you- what do you generally speculate about?
