Spread of Astrology in the Middle East

by Avantika Sharma (writer), New Delhi, August 25, 2016

Today the age-old study of astrology has reached every nook and corner of the world leaving practically no region where it hasn’t penetrated, and the UAE is no exception to it.

Astrology is an age-old science which involves an exhaustive and in-depth study of the future of a person based on his date of birth, time and place of birth, etc. India has been the birthplace of this science. However, today if you see, a number of western countries are also slowly turning towards astrology when it comes to seeking guidance on any problem which they may be facing in their professional or personal lives. Let us see some of the possible reasons which can be responsible for such a sudden demand for astrologers in UAE:

Strong historical background

Usually, people in the West believe only such things which have a strong backing or a logical reasoning behind it. In the case of astrology, the studies which the ancient scholars have done provide this strong and sturdy base to edifice astrology. Because of this, more and more people seem to be turning to astrology.

In sync with the changing times

Many people have this perception that astrology involves long and complex rituals which are not possible to be followed at least not in today’s fast paced lives. However, this is more of a myth than the truth as astrology is not complex at all and the solutions which it aims to give are quite simple and easy to follow. In fact, these days there are a number of astrologers whose approach to astrology is extremely rational and practical. So if someone suggests you to do some pooja or follow any complex ritual, chances are there that he may not be a genuine astrologer. So better be careful from such astrologers and go for one whose credibility is known.

Good for seeking guidance

There are a number of people who although don’t believe in astrology completely, yet they consult astrologers just to seek guidance especially if they are confused about on a major decision either in their professional or personal lives. So even if a person does not believe in astrology, he can just take his horoscope readings as a mere reference.

Astrology has nothing to do with Religion

Some people believe that astrology is only followed by Hindus. However, this is not true. Even Islam gives a lot of importance to the movements of celestial bodies. For instance, Islamic Calender is based on the movements of the moon. Thus, Astrology is also accepted widely by people of islamic faith.

Looking at the expats staying in the UAE, the natives there are gradually turning towards astrology and seeking consultations from a good astrologer in UAE.
