Astrology offers practical insight into personality and relationships. Like personality tests, it has types of behavior patterns associated with the details of the moment you were born. UNLIKE personality tests - it has infinite combinations of those details that not only help illuminate the personality, but also help navigate life's challenges. No more being pigeon-holed under your sun sign. You are so much more complex than that!
What are these details? They are a function of the location of the Sun, Moon, and ALL the planets in the sky around the earth at the place and time you were born. Think of it as your own personal Star of Bethlehem.
A natal (or birth) chart shows the picture of where the planets were at the moment of your birth. They can be interpreted to give insight into your personality and life patterns and path.
When the sun returns to the same spot in the sky as when you were born it is called a 'solar return'. This usually occurs on or close to your birthday. Interpreting this chart can give you an idea of what opportunities to expect in the year ahead.
Comparing two individuals' natal charts through synastry or a composite chart provides help in navigating the complexities of a relationship. Interpretation of these charts helps to pinpoint the strengths and weaknesses of relationships whether family, coworkers, community, or significant other.
The planets keep on moving... and as they do, you can notice or feel the changes in your life as they contact points in your natal chart. Interpretation of this chart helps clarify what is going on in your life at the moment, including opportunities and challenges.
