What is Astrology?
Astrology is a system of interpreting the positions of celestial objects, such as planets, stars, and the moon, as having an influence on human affairs and terrestrial events. It is a complex and ancient system that has been practised for centuries in many different cultures around the world.
What is an Astrology Chart?
An astrology chart, also known as a natal chart or birth chart, is a map of the sky at the exact moment of your birth. It is like a replica of the sky at the time you entered the world. Astrology charts are used to interpret a person's personality, strengths, weaknesses, and potential in life. Astrologers believe that the positions of the planets at the time of your birth can influence your personality, relationships, career, and health.
The chart is divided into 12 sections, each representing a different zodiac sign. These are the twelve divisions of the ecliptic, the path of the sun across the sky. The zodiac signs are named after the constellations that they used to be aligned with, but since the constellations have shifted over time, the zodiac signs no longer align perfectly with them. Following are the different types of zodiac signs.
Types of Astrology
Modern Astrology or Psychological Astrology
Modern astrology can be the best option for new practitioners who are thinking of incorporating astrology into their work profession. It is easier to learn and largely based on the drawing of the archetypal work of Carl Jung. It focuses on people’s inner psyche (like Kundali, Dasha, etc,.) and delves deeper into their core nature. Modern astrology is a way of a person’s self-improvement and shows that every hurdle is actually an opportunity to grow better. This astrology inclines on free will and says that there is a silver lining for almost everything and you can do anything you wish and work for.
Traditional or Medieval Astrology
Unlike modern astrology, traditional astrology works more around your fate. They discard the idea of free will and say that everything is predetermined in a person’s life based on their Kundali. Traditional astrology will tell you about the events in the past, present, or future and the reasons behind them.
Even if a person is determined to do something, traditional astrology has a calculative and cosmic reason for it. This astrology prepares you for what might happen in the future. Most millennials who wish to pursue a career in astrology wish to specialize in traditional astrology as well!
If you wish to have some soul-searching experience or wish to know the deeper meanings of life, evolutionary astrology is perfect for it. Evolutionary astrology was first practiced in the 1970s. This astrology is primarily based on the planet Pluto and tells about a person’s soul and their past lives. It will tell not only about your current life but also shows you what your past lives were like, and how your soul has transformed from different lives. Evolution astrology primarily shows the evolution of the soul and how it has healed and developed from its last experiences. The main idea is self-discovery and personal empowerment based on their Kundali.
Vedic astrology is the most trusted and oldest of astrology in Indian geography. Vedic astrology is written in the oldest scriptures in Sanskrit and has its derivations from the Vedas.

It also offers suggestions, mantras, Vidhi, Puja, and offerings for the deities to avoid struggles and setbacks in your life.

Horary astrology is more like the tarot card reading. It will instantly give answers to your questions. However, the question needs to be simple and not related to your past lives. For instance, you can ask questions like ‘when can I get my next job’, how is my marriage going to work post childbirth’, etc. So, the astrologer will draw the chart accordingly and answer your questions. But make sure that your questions are relevant and have to do with something you are going through at present. All the details like when you ask your question, the place you are at while asking the question, etc is imperative in Horary astrology. Also, none of your birth details is required in such predictions.
Locational Astrology or Mundane Astrology
Mundane astrology is mainly about the cycle and patterns. It will also tell you about the locations you might fall in love with or get your next job at. However, previously, locational astrology was not about every individual's fate. It was more about the continents, their geographical borders, and changes in their zodiac sign. Surprised? Oh yes, places do have zodiac signs as well! Also, it foretells major events in cities like elections, fashion shows, war, etc. It also used to tell about the king’s fate in the old times like where he was going to win the next land or die etc.
Electional astrology is about picking the best time for everything. If you have to buy land, finalize a deal, book a car, etc you can pick a perfect moment with Electional astrology. This astrology will tell you the right moment for all the significant events in your life so you have maximum luck before starting anything. Electional astrology is mainly crucial in marriage, shifting your career, planning any big surgery, etc.
This is the most common area of astrology. All proficient astrologers mainly get questions about marriage, money, or the love life. This astrology will significantly help you with determining the quality of your relationship with your betterhalf. It is also crucial in understanding the cosmic influences on your relationship and ways to better your life after marriage. Relationship astrology will predict the compatibility between two people. Although you must remember, this compatibility does not have to be romantic. It is determined through all 36 Gunas of a person. If two people have more than 26 gunas in common, the couple is said to be of the highest compatibility.
Medical astrology is associated with the different body parts and disease one might encounter in any of their body parts. Each zodiac sign rules different body parts and the position of different planets at the time of a person’s birth has a lot to do with the disease one might encounter. For example, Leo is for the heart while Mercury is for action and likewise. However, do remember to see a doctor when you’re facing any physical or mental complications instead of seeing an astrologer.
