There is no area in human experience to which astrology cannot be applied. We also need to know that there are certain things that astrology cannot do. Many people fear astrology because they think astrologers will tell them about specific accidents, various disasters and the time of death.
No serious astrologer would ever say that a client will have an accident on a specific day. What he may say is that at the end of such-and-such time the client may tend to be more accident prone than at others. No astrological forecast may be absolutely precise, nor are the future events it may be describe absolutely inevitable; and the same is true of course, in conventional medicine, weather forecasting, or any area concerned with relatively intangible topics.
Horary Astrology or Prashna Shastra
Prashna is one of the six branches of Indian Astrology. Horary Astrology or "Prashna" as it is called in Kerala is a system of astrology that is well developed in Kerala than in other parts of the state and world. In this system there are different methods like "Ashtamangala Prashnam", "Taamboola Prashna", K.P Prashna etc depending on the Astrologer's expertise in each of these.
This is based on the principle that every movement an individual's actions and feelings will be connected to the nature which will be indicated by the planets just as at the moment of birth of the individuals birth chart. The planets ruling at the moment indicates what was, is and would be of the individual's experience, physically and mentally. Pain and pleasure are the broad classification of experience of all beings. Every being aspires for happiness always because happiness is it's Real Nature. Therefore the necessity arises to analyze the cause of pain and pleasure for the well being of the individual. Prasna is the method of analysis of the events Astrologically based on the moments chart and to rectify the defects,defeat,pain,difficulties and defeciencies.Thus it is instant. The mutation to ask a question arises in the mind of the individual and the moment's chart reveal the answer to it. There a relationship is created linking the individual who aspires to know about a thing with the astrologer and divine principle "Atma".
The Utility of Horary Astrology is highlighted in the fact that it is also useful to people who doesn't have their birth data (birth date and birth time) or horoscope. This is applicable on those who are not aware of their birth details and for those also who need predictions from an astrologer about their current problems which are very nicely reflected in the prashna birth chart despite the fact that those problems are also seen in the native birth chart/horoscope. Such people can also seek astrologer's opinion on different matters by way of asking questions. The ingredients of making prashna chart are the current date, time and the geographical location of the querent.

Personality Analysis using Astrology
Yes, astrology enables one to fairly accurately and rapidly describe one's character and personality. It sometimes discloses psychological facets which the chart owner is not yet aware of. This knowledge of oneself through astrology also enables one to gain awareness of one's vulnerabilities, to lessen them, to remedy them, and even in some cases, to turn them into strength by transcending or overcoming their negative components. Astrologer tells the truth of people. It has an empirical system of judgment relying on those factors which 'make' the personality. An astrologer who meets a client may instinctively believe him to be a realist; his birth chart may reveal him to be an incurable romantic. He may think his client to be careless and forgetful; the chart may show him to be meticulous and the possessor of a keen memory. How he uses his self knowledge is of course a matter of him.
Muhurtha is the branch of vedic astrology which helps you find the right time to do any important task. Muhurtha means a moment, in respect to astrology it refers to the astrological influences prevalent at the moment of beginning an event or performing some action. Not only do the success, well-being, and longevity of an event depend upon moment, the effects that the action has upon the performer also depends upon this moment. Conducting or performing actions at an astrologically appropriate moment, therefore, not only support the success of the event, but also maintain the well-being of the performer. It gives valuable directions by following which the person will be enabled to remove, neutralize, counteract or overcome the evils indicated by the horoscope chart. Horoscopy is diagnostic. It merely points out the ills but prescribes no remedies. Muhurtha is prescriptive as well as preventive. It tells how by undertaking ventures at auspicious times one can ward off the evils and ensure success.
Astrological compatibility consideration is not only a mere ancestral practice but is a way to get the knowledge regarding the nature, features, love and the social communication features of the people. Unless and until a compatibility is found between the two persons they can't hold a life-long relationship happily. Since it is a very difficult task to get the accurate knowledge of the person's nature etc. before a marriage (or a long-term relationship) , the proven since of Astrology can definitely help the two lives a great deal. Horoscope matching is done in Hindus when two people are considering marriage and want to determine their compatibility. This report consists of the birth chart of both the boy and girl and the matching report as per ancient vedic astrology principles and determines temperament compatibility, mutual love, strength of the marital bond, financial prosperity post marriage, progeny, sexual compatibility amongst other things. Marriage is the biggest gamble a person will ever do in his or her life. Therefore it is always advisable to find out through every possible means whether the couple are compatible with each other. Marriage is one of the most sacred and significant occassions in life. Confering a legal and dignified status, Marriage is a sacred ritual and great care has to be exercised while uniting two people in wedlock. Astrology for marriage gives details about the match, the details about the ups and downs in your married life, the amount of love between the couples, sexual compatibility, chances of divorce and so on.
The chief importance is given to the moon's position and aspects in case of a male horoscope and the sun's position in case of a female horoscope. The configuration of the two connotes the happiness of married life.
Career is one of the most important factors highlighted in our natal chart. Astrology can offer insights to see which job choice will bring you the most success or the least; whether a person is more suited to a particular field, which is also affected by a person’s personality traits as one can note their strengths and weaknesses. Therefore, the personality of an individual plays a big role in the kind of work that they take pride in. The sun sign (placement of the sun at the time of your birth) of an individual is very important in shaping a person’s general personality and traits. Even when a career has been under way for some years, a man or women may feel a sudden need to change profession or careers. An astrology counseling will help see if this is really a necessity or just a passing fancy, best channeled into a spare time interest; and if it is a necessity, whether it is likely to lead to financial happiness or achieve his career goal. In other sectors of career like timing a deal, indicating the best time for buying or selling, starting a new project or discontinuing an old one astrology can be put to practical use using muhurthas.
