Introduction to Tibetan Astrology:

Bon religion forms the basis of Tibetan astrology. Lord Shenrab Miwo has introduced it in his teachings of 'nine ways of Bon'. Tibetan Astro Science is divided into two main categories: Byung-rTsis (Elemental astrology) and Kartsi (Astronomy). Tibetan astrology is used in different stages and fields of one's life.
When a baby is born, parents will consult the astrologer to cast a birth horoscope (che tse). It can tell you about his previous life, his nature in present life and how long will live etc. When a couple is getting married, they can look for marriage compatibility (Bak tsi) It tells whether the marriage is recommendable, any obstacles in the marriage, remedies for the obstacles etc.

Yearly predictions are made to see what will happen during the year (Gak tsi). It tells you about obstacles during the year with regards to business deals, traveling and one's health etc. Tibetan astrology has a close relationship with Tibetan Medicine and they are often taught together. If a person has health problems, astrology is used for diagnosing the disease and finding the right cure. It can also tell you about suitability of particular medicine and Physician.
When people die, horoscopes are made for funeral arrangements (Shi tsi). Astrologers can advise on rituals and methods of cremation. It can determine the spiritual cause of death suggest for spiritual practices as there are chances of ominous harms entailing from death of the person to living members of the family. Horoscopes are commonly used in times of change, such as moving to a new house; starting a new project or traveling to far away places.
It can also predict a general life span (Tse rab la tsi) to see what could possibly happen in a person's life. However, Tibetan astrology is not a fatalistic system. A person's life can be changed for better or worse by his or her own actions. our life too follow law of cause and effect relationship.
