The study of the shape, protuberance and mental vibrations of the skull of a person and mental capacity and character they reveal is called phrenology. The strong mental vibrations are controlled by Rahu and the structure of the brain is controlled by Mercury. Mind is divided into 42 divisions and these divisions are also 12 houses of natal chart. Phrenology is connected with Astro-Palmistry and by fixing the planets in the 12 division of the mind, we can judge the mental vibrations of the person at any given time.
