This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • Astrology gives effects of only Prarabda Karma in this life. To know your Prarabda Krama exactly, you should realize your self (atma) or only a sage can tell you your Prarabda Karama. – The Destroyer Jan 12 '16 at 12:57
  • Prarabdha means that karma which has already begun to blossom. i.e. Think of karma as an arrow. The arrow that has not yet left the bow is not prarabdha. However if the arrow has already left the bow, then it HAS to HIT a Target. That is prarabdha. That karma has already begun to come after you, thus it cannot be stopped. There are only four ways to remove prarabdha, 1. Absolute Self-Knowledge (Jnana) 2. Absolute self-surrender (Atma Nivedanam) 3. Total eradication of selfishnesss (Variagya) or 4. Grace of God or Guru or another Saint who will take upon Himself your prarabdha. All the best. – Sai Jan 13 '16 at 4:29
