Can astrologers claim he can give most accurate predictions?
The above shloka says Astrologers can only indicate the results of the planets , only Bramha can give exact quantum of the result.
This shows that when somebody has forecasted a good phase , it cannot turn out to be opposite. but how good? it is not the purview of the astrologer. Only bramha can say that because he is the provider. lets dwell more on it.
a capacity of astrologer is limited to the domain he is inspecting. what are domains, luck pours from heavens, it also pours from blessings of elders, it also is enhanced by good wishes of friends and acquaintance. now how much each influence is subject to the domain under analysis. friends good wishes can get nullified by curses of elders. heavens gift can overcome a curse.
similarly a heavens wrath can overtake a boon.if you are predicting only considering a previous gift , and overlook a present curse , predictionswould go offtrack.
example: Shiva had given boons to jarasandha kichaka, bakasura,hidimba etc boons of being never faced with death, immortality. all astrologers looking at these horoscopes say they are immortals.even Indra and others could not match these demons because of the boons and had to flee. suggesting immortality. Bheemasena killed all these ,that means he has overtaken these boons. Bheemasena was more powerful, for these demons a brush with more powerful nullified their boons. Bheemasena was devotee of Krishna , if Bheemasena could kill these demons mean he is superior to Shiva, because He is devotee of Krishna , Krishna is supreme than Vayu (Bheema) and Shiva.
only to prove this Krishna avoided killing jarasandha ,to the extent he settledin Dwaraka than Mathura. he wanted to show if my devotee can nullify the boons of Shiva ,so can I. only superiors can overtake juniors’ orders.Hence when sages predict , they predicted immortality to jarasandha, because they fell short of analysis beyond Shiva. However VedVyasa predicted death to these.
Never hurt elders,superiors and Devatas, these can foretell misfortune ,even death,even if you are in good phase of your life.
