Modern Love Podcast: Was It Me or Our Astrology?

-


“Love life not working out? Health problems? Everything going wrong?”

Amisha Patel used to be skeptical of astrological services that offered claims about the future. Her parents, who immigrated to the U.S. from India, would make annual trips back to Gujarat. When they returned to their New Jersey home, they would share predictions from Hindu astrologers about the fates of their children.

“I found my parents’ belief in fate unnerving and un-American,” Amisha wrote in her Modern Love essay. But in her late 20s, she began to embrace the notion of destiny as it relates to love and other experiences in her life.

Could it be that all paths lead to the same ending? We asked Amisha where she stands now.
