How to Read Your Own Birth Chart

Interpreting the Birth Chartnatal-chart

The most important thing to remember while interpreting any birth chart is: synthesis. The whole chart must be taken as a whole. A natal chart abounds with bits and pieces of information about an individual. Each separate bit must be synthesized into one whole picture of the person.

What we mean is that you cannot take one piece of the chart (for example, Mercury in Sagittarius) and decide that it defines the entire person. If you do that, you will, undoubtedly, be in error. Of course, you will be tempted to stop at one or another of the planetary meanings, and think that it is the defining factor of a person. This is a big mistake. For example, continue…

Planet influences

The planets regulate energy flow and represent the dimensions of experience.

The sun shows your basic nature.
The moon shows your basic needs.
Venus shows how you want to be pleased.
Mars shows how you want to please.

planets

In Astrology ten of the heavenly bodies are used because of their size, proximity and influence on the earth, and its human, animal, vegetable, and mineral kingdoms. In the proper order of their speed through the Zodiac they are: the Moon, Mercury, Venus, the Sun, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto.

The benefic planets are Jupiter and Venus; is known as “the greater fortune” and Venus is “the lesser fortune.” The influence of the Sun and Moon is considered good also.

Mercury, Neptune and Pluto are neutral planets—their influence is good when they are well aspected with other planets, but malefic when adversely aspected.

When you see words like “malefic”, “adverse”, “bad”, “unfavorable”, etc., bear in mind that such terms are used only for want of terminology that more fittingly describes planetary vibrations.

All signs and all planets are good but our human reactions may be bad, according to our stage of development. No planets are evilin nature, but our manifested responses may be judged as good or adverse.

Planets in love and sex

Sun in lovethe-planets-in-astrology

The Sun represents your basic inner ego energies, and its position in the chart denotes your overall inner direction. Its influence is quite general, referring to your orientation and style of life than to particular physical or mental attributes in love.

Any difficult aspects to the Sun mean that you are under a certain compulsive pressure, the effects of which depend on the nature of the planet aspected. Easy aspects, on the other hand, lend self-assurance, confidence and a feeling that you know where you are going. continue…

The sign of imagination and empathy, Pisceans can be protectively changeable, at the mercy of signals from all. They can be confused by not knowing which direction to take: on the one hand they give love and sacrifice, on the other they end in a state of doubt and even self-pity.

Aquarius personality

AQUARIUS (January 21 – February 18)aquarius

The sign of social reformation, Aquarius can be idealistically stubborn, when their altruism turns to rebellion.

Sagittarius personality

SAGITTARIUS (November 23 – December 21)sagittarius

The sign of burning optimism, Sagittarians can be passionately adaptable and dislike being commited. Like their symbol, they seem to be half god or goddess and half an earth-bound animal. Bluntly honest, they rarely realize how bruised others can feel by their comments. Being intelligent opportunists, Sagittarians make up for their blunders with an infectious positive attitude.

Ruled by expansive Jupiter, Sagittarians enjoy travelling and are partial to taking a gamble. They are generous thinkers and may be truly surprised to find that not everyone lives by the same rules as they do. Sagittarians see the broad view but miss the details, so they may drop things in their haste.

The Sagittarian secret fear is of losing their wide-ranging freedom of action. However, they love dashing about inspiring others and hide their own sadnesses with laughter. continue…

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)virgo

The sign of self-perfection. Virgoans can be practically adaptable, and are good organisers down to the last detail on the Virgoan list.

Virgoans have an interest in food and health and lose their apparent prudishness when they take their clothes off, in private of course. continue…
