Your birth chart, also known as an astrology or natal chart, is a map to the placement of the planets at the exact moment you were born. It holds the key to your unique life path and personality.
What Your Astrology Chart Can Tell You
A birth chart is a celestial snapshot of the universal energies at play the moment you arrived on this planet. It provides a roadmap to understanding how you became YOU. Think of it like a map that provides a snapshot of all the planetary coordinates at the exact time of your birth. Every individual’s birth chart (also know as a natal chart) is completely unique. The location, date, and time of your birth is all that is needed to calculate your birth chart.
Visually a chart is a 360 degree wheel divided into 12 sections. Each section is named after the famous constellations or zodiac signs that we are all familiar with (i.e Aries, Leo, Gemini, …). Your planets are plotted onto the wheel to see which sign they fall into to. For example, to calculate your Sun sign we look at which zodiac constellation the Sun was sitting in at the time of your birth.
Astrologers interpret this map by looking at the interplay of all your astrological elements and based on the archetypes that each of the signs represent. Each planet can offer insight into your individual character and clarity about your soul’s avenues for growth and personal evolution.
