Rapmaster2000: Are there a lot of fortune tellers in India?


I once saw pictures from a wedding in India.  Everyone looked tired, the old folks nearly asleep in their chairs.  The wedding was at 2am on a particular day because an astrologist said it was "auspicious."

Which doesn't directly answer your question, but still.

This is specifically a Hindu practice, where marriages must take place at a certain time depending on phases of the moon or position of other celestial bodies.  There are plenty of Christians in India that would not follow these practices.  The same goes for the entire "cows are sacred" thing.  India is an extremely diverse country.

I'll also add to my above post by mentioning it's not all that different by how Easter is determined by Christian religions, which is also based on the phases of the moon.

Which explains how one Indian restaurant I used to go to had some killer beef recipes, but when I ask about that in a different Indian restaurant, they looked aghast and said in no way, sir.
Also explains how there are some British beef curry recipes as well.

If only. Even ignoring all the disagreement among the different sects and over time, Easter is determined based on how some clergy decided the moon phase and equinox should be calculated, not on astronomical events. Both the "full moon" and the "equinox" used in the calculation can be off by 2 full days from reality.
