explain this line astrology like shastri can be tortured to suit occasion

Dear student 

This means that, an astrologer can lie about what his texts say, in order to suit the needs of every person. The narrator desperately wanted Ranga to marry Ratna. So he spoke to the Shastri and gave him specific instructions. When Ranga met the Shastri later, the Shastri lied to Ranga, saying that Ranga was destined to marry Ratna. Ranga believed this lie to be true, and married Ratna because of his faith in astrology.
