An astrologer foretold the death of a lady whom Louis XI passionately loved. She did, in fact, die; and the King imagined that the prediction of the astrologer was the cause of it. He sent for the man intending have him thrown through the window, as a punishment.

“Tell me, you pretend to be so clever and learned a man, what your fate will be?”

The soothsayer, who suspected the intrigues of the King and knew his weakness, replied: “Sir, I foresee that I shall die three days before Your Majesty”

The king believed him, and was careful of the astrologer’s life.


Angry Hitler

Adolf Hitler is known to frequent astrologers, soothsayers and others to know his future. A certain astrologer was asked by him, “On what day will I die?”

After studying his charts, the astrologer announced, “You will die on a Jewish Holiday”.

Much perturbed, Hitler demanded, “Which one?”

“I do not know”, replied the astrologer.

Hitler became very angry, “You must know”, he shouted, “I insist upon the truth”.

“I do not know”, persisted the astrologer, “because any day you die will be a Jewish Holiday”.

Saints versus Planets

A Story by Swami Ramdas
Following story is from “Stories as told by Swami Ramdas”:–

An itinerant saint came to a certain place along with his young disciple. The routine was that the disciple should go for alms (Bhiksha), and after collecting sufficient provisions come back to the Guru. Both would then cook food from the provisions thus secured and satisfy the hunger.

As usual, the disciple, who was yet a boy, started in the morning on his daily Bhiksha (going for alms). When he was passing through a lane he was called by an astrologer who sat on the Verandah of his house waiting for customers. Having had no customers till then and finding no work to do he asked the boy to sit by his side. Taking that moment as the basis, the astrologer studied the planets governing the life of the boy and found out that the boy, according to his reading, should die next day. The astrologer told this anticipated event to the boy.

The boy hearing the prediction of the astrologer was thoroughly frightened. He could not collect the Bhiksha for the day, but hurriedly went back to his Guru. With tears in his eyes he told his Master about the dire prediction of the astrologer. Then the guru calmly replied: “Look here my boy, nothing is going to happen to you tomorrow. You will be alright.” He kept the boy with him the whole day. On the following day the boy was asked to go for Bhiksha in the usual course. The boy again happened to go through the same lane in which the astrologer lived. The astrologer was astounded to find him alive contrary to his prediction. He called the boy, asked him who his Guru was, and expressed a wish to have his Darshan.

Accordingly, led by the boy, the astrologer went to the saint whose disciple the boy was. The boy introduced the astrologer to his Guru. The saint looked at the astrologer and said, “You freighted my disciple unnecessarily. Do you think he will meet with any harm so long as he is under my protection? It was unwise of you to have upset the mind of the boy by saying that he would die yesterday”
Such is the power of the saints.
