The vision of RationalAstro is to contribute towards demystifying the subject of Astrology through the practice and propagation of Nirayan Jyotish. RationalAstro advocates a rational, practical, modern, non-religious and non-commercial approach in Astrology. Unfortunately, Astrology today is in the hands of charlatans who create fear and insecurity in the minds of people. Also, these charlatans extort a lot in cash and kind from people in the name of pujas, gemstones etc. Above all, the intellectuals continue to shy away from discussing Astrology and reject it without even studying it. RationalAstro aspires to research Astrology and encourage & empower people by removing insecurities and promoting the exercise of free will over fate. Furthermore, it aims to prevent extortion of people by charlatans in the field of Astrology.  

Approach of RationalAstro

RationalAstro marks a radical paradigm shift in the field of Astrology. Astrology doesn’t require us to be religious to benefit from it. Significantly, Astrology can be an essential decision-making tool to manoeuvre the times we are going through. People who are logical, intelligent, and who believe in Karma or Action rather than solely relying on Bhagya or Luck can substantially gain from Astrology. Therefore, studying Astrology can transform a person into a karma yogi rather than making him a fatalist or bhagyavadi.

In Conclusion, RationalAstro deals with the study of Astrology separately from religion, eating habits, forms of God one worships, atheism etc. Moreover, it advocates proper research in Astrology so that the correct and original knowledge of Astrology can reach the Society.
