Many psychics are skilled in, or, have an understanding of astrology. It is a widely used divinational system for interpreting the nature or character of an individual and predicting future events. Astrologers have been used by both politicians and celebrities as well as everyday people looking for a way to avoid the unexpected or negative aspects of life, and to foretell the future. Many psychics spend their entire lives learning astrology in order to gain a proper understanding of it. An astrological reading by a skilled psychic will reveal predisposed trends at the time of birth, making people more aware of their talents and abilities. Armed with this understanding, one may spend time developing or fine tuning them. Psychics who study astrology can also recognise when good fortune may arise and when to avoid negative influences. With this information one is better equipped for taking decisions and making better informed choices.

Many ancient civilisations practised the art of astrology, including the Assyrians, Babylonians, Egyptians, Mayans and Incas. The Greeks were the first to produce an ephemeris, which is a book showing the position of the stars at a particular time, and is used during the calculating process. The Romans continued the practice until the early Christians began attacking astrology and the art declined for the next eight hundred years. In the 17th century its interest increased in particular when Queen Elizabeth l turned to the astrologer and psychic John Dee. It was later brought into popularity by Madam Helena Blavatsky, one of the founders of Theosophical Society, around 1875.

To have an accurate chart ( sometimes called a natal chart ) created the person requesting the chart must provide the psychic with the exact time, date and place of birth.
