Branches of Horoscopic Astrology

Every tradition of horoscopic astrology can be divided into four specific branches which are directed towards specific subjects or used for specific purposes. Often this involves using a unique set of techniques or a different application of the core principles of the system to a different area. Many other subsets and applications of astrology are derived from the four fundamental branches.

There are four major branches of horoscopic astrology:

  • Natal astrology—the study of a person’s natal chart in order to gain information about the individual and the individual’s life experience.
  • Katarchic astrology—includes both electional and event astrology. The former uses astrology to determine the most auspicious moment to begin an enterprise or undertaking, and the latter to understand everything about an event from the time at which it took place.
  • Horary astrology—a system of astrology used to answer a specific question by studying the chart at the moment the question is posed to an astrologer.
  • Mundane or world astrology—the application of astrology to world events, including political,weather, earthquakes, and the rise and fall of empires or religions.
