Horoscopic Astrology is divided into the four main branches of Natal, Mundane, Electional and Horary.
1. Natal Astrology is the most commonly practiced form of Horoscopic Astrology and is based upon the idea that each individual’s personality or path in life can be determined by constructing a natal chart for the exact date, time, and location of a person’s birth.
2. Mundane Astrology is one of the most ancient forms of astrology and takes its name from the Roman word Mundus, meaning “the World”. Mundane Astrology is based upon the idea that a correlation exists between individuals and world events, world affairs (wars, assassinations, etc.) and even geological phenomena such as earthquakes.
3. Electional Astrology is the practice of determining an individual’s astrological profile to determine how and when he or she should partake in a particular undertaking or event such as opening a business.
4. Horary Astrology is the practice in which the astrologer attempts to answer an individual’s specific question by constructing a horoscope centered on that specific question.
