These three types of astrology are: –

  1. Western (Tropical) astrology
  2. Hindu (Vedic) astrology
  3. Chinese and East Asian astrology

Let’s see all these kinds of astrology in detail.

Western (Tropical) Astrology

Western or Tropical astrology is a type of divination based on the horoscope, which is constructed at the exact moment. It is likely to be constructed at the person’s birth. It makes use of the tropical zodiac, which is aligned to the equinoctial points. It is based on the relative positions of the celestial bodies like the Sun, the Moon, and the different planets as well. This astrology also considers the position of the planets in the twelve different divisions of the sky. Western astrology in modern times is usually reduced to sun sign astrology. Hence, it considers only the zodiac sign of the Sun at a person’s date of birth and the time of birth. It can represent only 1/12 of the total chart.

This horoscope is used to express the set of relationships for the place and time of the chosen event. The different interplanetary powers and their angles, decide the good or bad for the person.  Western astrology is practiced for ages, and it provides useful results for its users. The best astrologer in Nepal also uses this astrology technique.

Hindu (Vedic) Astrology

Hindu astrology, also known as Vedic astrology dates, back to the 3rd century BCE. The oldest text on astrology is the Vedanga Jyotisha. This astrology came through incorporating the Hindu lunar mansions. The names of the planets, the names of the signs, and astrological terms in Varaha Mihira’s text are assumed to the conclusive evidence that, Hindu astrology originates from Greek origin. It is also assumed that the Indian techniques may have been augmented with some Babylonian techniques. 

Hindu astrology is practiced on a large scale in most parts of the world. Many successful people follow these astrology tips, which have helped them in their career growth. Also, the astrologers have used their knowledge of Hindu astrology. They have provided useful predictions with this astrology.

Chinese and East Asian Astrology

Chinese astrology has its roots in Chinese philosophy. It uses the concepts such as the yin and yang, the 10 celestial stems, shichen, 12 earthly branches, and the five phases. Chinese astrology was previously used to select the dates for auspicious days for events and decisions, the observation of different phenomena, identification of portents, and studies of political astrology. According to Chinese astrology, the sky is divided into three enclosures. The Chinese zodiac which consists of 12 different animals represents twelve different personality types. 

The Korean zodiac is similar to the Chinese zodiac in many ways. Also, the Vietnamese zodiac is a little similar to the Chinese zodiac, the second animal is the water buffalo instead of the Ox, and the fourth animal is the cat instead of the rabbit. Chinese astrology is different from Western and Hindu astrology.


Hence, all the above-mentioned three astrology are different from each other. They are unique in their ways and give results as per the rules mentioned in them. One can get predictions from any astrology. But at the same time, the results of one’s success also depend on one’s hard work.
