Natal astrology is defined as the branch of astrology anchored on the idea that each human’s destiny and personality can be figured out by creating a natal chart. This chart must be filled out with the exact place, date, and time of birth. Also known as genethliacal astrology, natal astrology can be traced back to the ancient astrological traditions of the Chinese, Indian or Jyotish, and Western cultures. Aside from these fascinating details, here are other interesting facts about natal astrology:
1. Natal astrology’s concept is based on horoscopic astrology.
Basically, horoscopic astrology deals with visualisation of heavenly bodies and their different aspects at a particular period of time. This is where horoscopes came from. And the most notable application of this astrological concept is natal astrology. With the use of a detailed chart, a person’s characteristics, traits, and talents are revealed.
2. Natal astrology is a prominent divination practice.
Historical records have it that natal astrology is performed in both Western and Eastern cultures. Unlike the other branches of horoscopic astrology—such as electional, mundane, and horary astrology that primarily deal with important events, subjects, politics, and business—genethliacal astrology is considered more reliable and functional by many psychics.
3. Natal astrology’s chart is focused on the positions of celestial bodies.
The significant features of these charts concern the placements of the sun and moon, the sign on the ascendant, and the planet that rules that sign. It also gives importance to the first planet to take up the first, second, or third houses after the ascendant. This is better known as the rising planet, which is considered as a powerful image in the chart.

Lucid dreaming is one of the most popular psychic abilities in the field of divination. It is known as a state of consciousness where a person is aware that he or she is dreaming in uninterrupted and extended span of time. Psychics explain that this phenomenon lets you experience a state of reality that is created by your dreams. But apart from letting you do things that you normally can’t, lucid dreams can also serve as an important tool for advancing the human race. This claim is supported by the following benefits that we can get from lucid dreaming:
1. It improves problem-solving skills.
Many scientists who happened to be lucid dreamers gained leaps in their studies with the psychic ability unknown to them. Most of them were able to answer critical problems using hints provided by the clear thoughts fed to them by their subconscious minds. Some notable cases include the discovery of the structure of benzene molecules by Friedrich Kekule; the invention of sewing machine by Elias Howe; and the experiments on nerve impulses conducted by Otto Loewi. All these have been perfected because their scientists were not merely utilising their logical, conscious minds.
2. It enhances creativity.
This benefit of lucid dreaming is proven by some of the most notable artists around the world. Musical geniuses such as Beethoven, Mozart, and Wagner stressed that their inspirations mostly came from their dreams. Some of the greatest masterpieces of William Blake, Salvador Dali, and Paul Klee were inspired by their dreams as well. Lucid dreams unleash a person’s creative competencies because of the unceasing flow of ideas emerging from his or her subconscious.

Over the years, checking our horoscope has been part of our daily lives. Being naturally curious about what is in store for us, we rely on astrology and the readings it provides based on our zodiac signs. But did you know that there are misconceptions about these astrological signs? Read on to know some of them.
Most Aquarians see themselves as detached, indifferent, and too cautious. But this is not true, for they are actually the total opposite. Their unresponsiveness is just a way of safeguarding themselves from the world’s cruelty. However, they are truly sensitive, the reason why most of us see them as cold and unfriendly.
It is a popular belief that Arians are lunatics. These people are very active and fidgety at times, but they must not be labeled as “mad.” They are only rational and exceptional troubleshooters.
Cancerians are said to be prone to fights and troubles. But contrary to their irritable disposition, these persons are naturally gentle and sweet. They prefer to live a simple and serene life by being pleasant to anyone.
Boredom and non-provocativeness are mostly associated with Capricorn. The truth is, Capricorns are very romantic and passionate. It is just normal that they choose to hide their love for intimacy because this is not the society’s norm.
Carrying the symbol of a twin, Geminis are believed to possess a split personality. Somehow, there is truth in this reputation. But their tendency to change their thoughts in a matter of minutes actually shows their skill to see and comprehend critical matters that other people fail to notice.
It is a misconception that all Leos are strong, firm, and bold. They might have stronger emotional stability, but they are humans, too. Hence, they also know how to recognise sadness, frustration, grief, and failure.

Hindu or Vedic astrology is known as the world’s oldest form of astrology. This divination practice from India was developed to understand the concept of Karma and the lessons associated with it. Vedic astrology is different from tropical astrology, which was established in Western cultures. It generally applies the zodiac of the fixed stars and relates the placement of the heavenly bodies with the practice of yoga and the idea of chakra. But just like the Western belief, Vedic astrology also has 12 zodiac signs.
Here are the interpretations of each sign star from the Hindu perspective:
Aries, the Ram
This sign is associated with strength and power of procreation. Hindu astrologers believe that Aries symbolises the so-called Self-Existence Absolute, which is the primary source of all life forces.
Taurus, the Bull
The second zodiac signifies Divine Energy. It is also linked to the fertility of spring.
Gemini, the Male and the Female
Vedic astrology sees this sign as representations of two differentiated Creative Energies that created the world. Gemini also shows the duality of energy forms: positive and negative.
Cancer, the Crab
In a Hindu’s viewpoint, Cancer symbolises pranava, or the four state of consciousness. It also signifies the four states of Brahman, namely: Vaisvanara, Hiranyagarbha, Prajna, and Isvara. In Hinduism, Brahman is defined as “the unchanging reality amid and beyond the world,” something inexplicable.

Carl Bard once said, “Although no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.” This is definitely true when you are thinking of clicking the restart button of your life. Almost everybody would agree that it would be so hard to go back from point A, but it is actually inevitable. We must face that starting over again is a difficult phase simply because the foundations we used to have had crumbled right before our eyes. But if you are going to look on the other side of the coin, you will see that with this challenge of critical change comes a rare chance to grab new opportunities. So if you want to rearrange your status quo and recreate your life, start with these five simple life tips:
1. Do yourself a favour.
This favour is the choice to start the change today. Forget about what other people think of you. Everyone—your parents, teachers, and partner—has a piece on how you should live your life. This is where expectations and unnecessary pressure come in. And when it happens, be critical enough to weigh which of these forces are actually beneficial for you. Those that bother you so much might just pull you down. Drop them and carry the baggage that you know you can handle. Remember, diamonds are made by pressure.
2. End the toil.
Do not live with the negative thought of blaming your present state for the things that you cannot do or achieve. Keep this life advice in mind: life is a gift to be enjoyed and not a problem to be solved. All of your current problems have solutions. Do not soak into too much drama. Instead, focus on the actions that you should take in order to end your struggle.

History has it that ancient human beings have looked up at the night sky and tried to interpret what they saw. There came many explanations in response to the big mystery, and one of the oldest answers is that the planets, stars, and other heavenly bodies are controlling and manifesting influences on humans. This practice of interpreting the heavens was later known as astrology, which comes today with the following additional interesting facts:
A practice based on belief
Many individuals consider astrology as a belief. Nonetheless, it is not like a religion or spiritual sect where followers believe in a particular god. Astrology can actually be examined and verified by solid proofs, such as relationship experience and choice of career. But it must also be noted that astrology works on a unique individual level, so the one who conducts the experiment is actually a part of the experiment. Also, most practitioners believe that evidences must come from personally seeing a person’s birth chart. This proof matched with the study of astrology then becomes knowledge.

Are you the type of person who would pick a particular day for a specific activity? If yes, you might be delighted to know that this practice actually matches a unique branch of astrology. Electional astrology deals with the selection of definitive days to engage in any distinct kind of pursuit.
Electional astrology facts
This system of divination is almost as ancient as astrology itself. It can be traced back to the early history of Hebrew astrologers where they formulated the fundamentals of electional astrology. These ancient astrologers believed that they could predict if a day was favourable for any particular human activity. They did this by analysing the planetary aspects of the day, and true enough, they managed to determine the best days for marriage and other important occasions.
Preliminary considerations in electional astrology
If you wish to learn the rudiments of this divination, you must familiarise yourself with its four main considerations:
- The chart must clearly define your aim.
- The natural significators of the action should be firm.
- The chart must be aligned with the natal chart.
- Electional astrology will not let you play god.
- Success or failure based on electional astrology

An English philosopher named John Locke provided one of the best thoughts about inner peace. He said, “A sound mind in a sound body, is a short, but full description of a happy state in this world. He that has these two, has little more to wish for; and he that wants either of them, will be little the better for anything else.” His quote perfectly encapsulates the essence of creating inner peace, a state of mind that we all yearn for. But how do we actually achieve this state? Well, you might be surprised that it only takes these four simple steps:
1. Keep it simple.
Humans tend to complicate things. Unfortunately, this instinct is not helping us to gain the tranquility that we wish for. Instead, it urges us to rationalise or even problematise certain things that are naturally simple. Learn the art of persistent simplification and you will feel light. You can do this by keeping a limited to-do list. Just write two or three of the most important things that you have to accomplish. You must also set some limits to your commitment. Know when to say no in order to avoid too much stress.
2. Learn to accept.
Anger and resentment toward uncontrollable concerns exhaust our energy and spirit. Do away with these negative emotions by learning to accept the reality that we are not living in an ideal world. Try not to resist from the pressure and problems that are thrown upon you. Remember that these are parts of our lives and we have to accept them. It does not mean that you are giving up; You are just placing yourself in a better position where you can take the needed action. When you do this, you will feel still within.

Take an active step in avoiding psychic vampires by using these tips:
