In the Tibetan Buddhist medical and trantric traditions, astrology is not regarded as superstition but rather as a practical tool to understand and heal our body and mind on the gross, subtle and very subtle levels.
We experience many sicknesses and misfortunes due to outer, inner and secret astrological reactions and malevolent celestial influences. We need particular astrological methods with tantric and mantric power to balance the disturbed and opposing celestial energies and to create harmony with the celestial forces represented by the divinities of the constellation and planets.
