What is a Birth Chart in Astrology?
At the moment you are born, a frame or portrait of the skies and heaven are reflected in a birth or natal chart. The Sun, Moon and all the planets are documented where their positions are in the skies around Earth, at the moment of your birth. A birth chart reflects the exact angles and certain relations between the Planets and Earth at the time and place of your birth. A birth chart is like an Astrological blue print.
What is an Astrological blue print you ask?? Astrology well… it is the study of that which is beyond the physical. Astrology falls into the category of metaphysics, but the principles of it are, the study of Planets and their connection in relation to energy and its influence on us as humans. Astrology on individuals can be determined my a birth chart and the positions of planets when you are born and this corresponds to a basic archetype of an individual behavior, patterns, character and life.
Life is energy and Astrological birth charts can aid us by, presenting a combination of energies that affect individuals flow, function, development, and possibly a further understanding of one’s life and its cycles, this and along with outlining specific traits, strengths and weaknesses. This is all subjective to the individuals interpretation of the data and how people perceive whats in front of them, as no two people are the same.
To truly understand Astrology and how it relates to yourself and others you must understand the basics and what they represent. This includes the Zodiac signs, The Moon, the Sun, The 12 houses of the Horoscope and how planets represent a different area of our consciousness and subconsciousness.
