Three Major Sections of Astrology

Today we are going to discuss the three major sections or divisions in the world of astrology. These are the factors that find the most respect in the world of astrology. We will also share what they can do for you and what is the best way to use them.

So without further ado, let’s dive in: –

  1. Traditional Astrology

This kind of astrology is native to South East Asia, particularly India. It is often regarded as the most ancient form of astrology, with references dating back 2500 years. According to mythology this form was practiced and preached by ancient gurus of India, who used to meditate for years to gain spiritual enlightenment.

One of the purer forms of Traditional Astrology is ‘Vedic Astrology.’ It relies on Pujas and Havans to please God and to foster positivity into one’s life. They also included mantras and shlokas prescribed by learned gurus that cater to specific sections in a person’s life.

However, they demand or require complete purity or else the effect is almost nullified. In ancient times when people led a simple and spiritual life, remedies prescribed by Vedic Astrology could be followed by anyone.

But in today’s time, these activities require a lot of time and money, to get them right. Modern forms like Lal Kitab astrology have stemmed from ‘Traditional Astrology’ that can be done by the common man without any major hassles.

Traditional Astrology can be used both for prediction as well as remedies.

  1. Numerology

Prevalent in Greece and the Western world, numerology explains the impact numbers have in our lives. A number can be derived from major things affecting our life like our name, date of birth, the place we live, etc.

Numerology is used for personality assessment and predicts the impact a particular year will have on our lives. The corrective action prescribed by numerology is tough to implement.


For example, some practitioners of numerology prescribe you to change your name or relocate to another area to open more positive opportunities.

Even though it is tough to adhere to the remedies provided by numerology, they are widely regarded to be extremely powerful and effective.

  1. Palmistry

Finally, we have palmistry. It is an entirely predictive form of astrology that relies on the lines on your hand, to predict the future.

The lines help the reader to foretell about an individual’s health, the amount of money they will make, their relationships and also a rough idea about the personality of an individual.

There is no corrective action or remedies that are prescribed in palmistry, but thanks the mounts on your hand, they can predict which planets have a major influence in your life.


Apart from palms, some readers rely on the lines on your forehead and other parts of your body to predict your future. However, palmistry is the most trusted and reliable form in this section.

Apart from these three, there are also regional forms of astrology like Chinese astrology which also relies on your birth details to predict your future.

Astrology – A lost Science

In the glitz and glamor of 21st-century, humans forget the teaching of their ancestors. We are also ignoring the elements that were once part of our life. Astrology is one of the ancient science that finds its place in almost every ancient culture of this world. In India, we can find multiple texts related to Vedic Astrology, while China is known for Chinese Astrology. Even in ancient Greek mythology, you can find numerous references to numerology.

But, as Science and technology advanced, people started thinking that Astrology or Numerology was nothing but a scam, and thought it was only used to trick people.
Also, the rise of Internet gave rise to many fake websites or astrologers that used software to predict the future.

For the past 20-30 years’ astrology is thought of as a Utopian field that merely helps to foretell the future. However, the power of real astrology lies in the remedies.

At the time of our birth, they were certain planetary positions and throughout are life those planets have some influence on our lives. Some planets behave in a positive way, while some planets have a negative impact and can cause difficulties. The positions or the effects these planets have on our lives is dependent on your past ‘karma’.

With the science of astrology, you can identify the planets in your birth chart or ‘Kundli.’ A learned astrologer can accurately trace what planets have an adverse impact on your life. After identifying those, he can prescribe remedies to reduce the impact of such planets. Remedies can also be used to give more strength to ‘positive planets.’

Also, certain planets are responsible for certain aspects of your life. For example, Venus is in charge of wealth, so an astrologer can give remedies that can help in increasing the influence of that planet, in a positive way.

Our life is balanced by energies, positive and negative. And remedies are used to increase positive influence on our life. This is the power of true astrology. Just like in the field of medicine, the cause of the problem is attached to cure the patient of a disease. The science of astrology works in the same way and identifies the significant hurdles in your life and gives you the power to overcome them and succeed.

And this true power of astrology is diminished in today’s’ time. The scientific base of astrology is evident and can be used to enhance the quality of life a person is living. Also, it is a known fact that due to increased pressure levels, a lot of people suffer from stress. This increases the chances of negative energy to play a dominant role in your life. For such problems, it is difficult to find a medical solution, and again astrology can play an incredible role to nullify negativity thus giving you the power to focus on your goals. It can also be used for the betterment of health and can also increase your level of focus.

We hope this article helps to clear few misconceptions about astrology and also use it in a positive way.
