Monthly astrology is a common add on that is offered by most astrologers today. The advantage is that a user gets a broad idea of the coming month which is a much larger period as compared to a weekly or a daily forecast. The forecasts are made on the basis of signs, with some systems using the lunar signs and the others using the sun sign.
Monthly astrology forecasts are particularly popular in magazines, newspapers and television channels. They cater to a general audience which includes all those people who share the same astrological sign. The readings are very general and do not predict any particular event. Mostly, they pertain to the financial, career, health and love interests of the audience.
Some astrologers use monthly astrology to meet individual needs. In most cases they charge hefty fees for this service. The forecasts based on monthly astrology include all the good and the bad things that are likely to happen to you during the month. The areas that are covered are finance, business propositions, career, real estate, relationship, marriage status, health, and spiritual affairs.
The monthly astrology forecast gives you a detailed insight as to whether a particular month is good for finance, business, and health or not. Since most people are keen to know about their relationship problems, the monthly astrology forecasts also include how the month will be on the relationship front -- good, bad or stable. Most of the times the relationship segment encompasses parent-child, husband–wife, siblings relationship. Sometimes the astrologer will ask you to refrain from doing certain things. It is for you to follow the instructions or not. Some take these forecasts very seriously, others as a very broad indicator.
But there is little doubt that the monthly astrology forecasts do give you some inkling about the coming month.
