5. What is so unique about the term RationalAstro? How is RationalAstro different from other methods of dealing with Astrology? 

The approach of RationalAstro in dealing with the subject of Astrology is different in the sense that RationalAstro deals with the classical principals of Astrology from a modern perspective. RationalAstro believes that Logic and rationality should be crucial tools to deal with the subject of Astrology. One should not accept anything if it does not appeal to logic and reasoning. There are several hundred concepts in astrology that we still don’t understand. However, unfortunately, astrologers commonly misuse and abuse these concepts to foment insecurity in people and extort them. RationalAstro aims at making people more and more aware so that the charlatans in Astrology are not able to exploit them.  

There is a significant role of intuition of the Astrologer in chart readings. Psychology accepts Intuition as a concept, and eminent scholars have deeply researched ‘Intuition’. ‘Time rectification’ is the first and foremost step while analyzing horoscopes. The process of time rectification requires time and effort, but when the birth time gets rectified, the analysis is much more proper and fruitful. Further, on the remedy part, the approach of RationalAstroinvolves Sattvik remedies such as Mantras as against Rajasik remedies such as wearing ratnas or tamasik remedies such as tantra etc.
