Tibetan astrology is a blend of both Chinese and Indian astrological traditions but is uniquely Buddhist as it is based on the Kalachakra Tantra. As such there are many methods that are taught to overcome any negative influences that we may go through in daily life. These methods allow us to purify any negative astrological influences and karma, leading to a happier, smoother life as well as creating the causes for a fortunate rebirth in the future.
According to the Buddhist teachings, we all have a unique blend of karma that determines where we are born, the circumstances of our birth and the quality of our life. Naturally, this is due to the actions that we performed in previous lives. Karma also dictates our characteristics and traits that determine how we act throughout our lives, which in turn leads to certain outcomes in this life and a determination of where we will take rebirth in the future.
