Your unique, personal horoscope is a reflection of who you are, where you come from, and what’s in store for the future.
It’s your choice to use it for good or bad!
Your birth chart will have more accurate information if you enter the time of your birth, but if you don’t, it is recommended to enter 24:00, 12:00 am (midnight) or tick the unknown time box if there is one.
I will walk you through some basics about your birth chart in this post!
What is a Birth Chart?
Your personal birth chart can be used to predict personality traits, strengths and challenges in life, relationships with others, career success or failure, as well as health issues.
Your birth chart shows you at the time of your birth which signs the sun, moon, planets, are and what house it corresponds with. And if any eclipses or other major aspects were occurring at the time of your birth.
You can discover everything there is to know about you within your Birth Chart.
Understanding Your Birth Chart?
Your birth chart can be used to understand how the planets interact with one another and what influences you have in your life.
The chart helps you better understand yourself and others as well as what obstacles are coming up for you in the future.
A Birth Chart can tell you a lot about your personality type, which may help you make decisions about jobs or relationships that work best for you. It is also important to note that Astrology has been around since ancient times, so it is a tried-and-true science!
All the planets, the sun, and the moon, have different energies associated with them.
Also, we have the energies of the 12 different Astrology signs, and each of these corresponds to a house number in astrology.
When you find out which planet is in which astrology sign and which house it affects us in our life.
Remember that every astrological sign has two ruling planets, for example:
Aquarius — Saturn (ancient ruler) and Uranus (modern ruler)
Why is it important to know your Birth Chart?
Birth charts can help you better understand yourself, your child, your partner, or any other life situation that you’re experiencing. It can identify what kind of energy you may need from others to feel supported. It benefits you plus your entire family.
Sometimes we can go through life feeling a bit lost and confused, not knowing who we are, unsure of which direction to go, etc.
When you understand your birth chart, you see your personality, strengths and weaknesses, how you are wired, why certain things happen to you, how to best deal with them and even your career path.
We can make better decisions for ourselves and those around us from that information. Gain guidance for your future.
What Is The Most Important Information In Your Birth Chart
Your Sun sign, Moon sign, Ascending sign, also known as the Rising sign, North Node, and South Node. Each of these means certain areas of your life.
To find this out, look at your birth chart, which constellation (astrology sign) does each of these pass through when you were born.
(All the Signs can be found in the night sky.)
The energies of the astrology sign it falls in are how it affects you.
Your Sun Sign
The Sun sign is the essence of your soul and is the most dominant aspect of your chart.
It also tells you of your main personality traits and what your effect on others is like. Represents the conscious ego and the conscious will.
Your Moon Sign
The Moon sign affects how you feel and act in your day to day life controls your emotions and impulses. Represents your subconscious, what you might perceive as your soul, your unconscious desires and fears.
Ascendant (Rising) Sign
The Ascendant sign is how you show up in the world, particularly to other people. Your physical body and outward style, and your social personality.
The Lunar Nodes
Your North Node
The North node affects your destiny that you’re working towards, your future, to help you and change to be the best version of yourself.
North node activities require you to stretch out of your comfort zone.
Once you do, you will feel fulfilled. It’s like the activation of your life’s mission, and the sooner you align with yourself with this path, the more purpose-driven your life will be.
This is your mission and path in life by your natal birth chart.
Your South Node
The South node is your Karmic past, comfort zone, what you have naturally endowed with, your natural abilities/talents, qualities and skills that you have been born with.
We have to look at the positives and negatives of ourselves, using our free will to consciously make the changes that will help us drive and push ourselves in life.
So you can move towards your destiny.
The Twelve Houses
There are twelve houses in your birth chart, this is important in determining if certain planets have strength or not. Each house represents something different which I have explained.
Please note that sometimes you don’t have a planet in a house, so say, for example, if you have an empty 10th house, it doesn’t mean you’re a slacker. Lucky for you, it probably means you won’t have to face many challenges or dramatic shifts in your career path.
The 1st house represents your personality, how you present yourself to the world and what you are naturally good at.
The 2nd house represents your income, personal finances, material possessions, etc.
The 3rd house represents transportation, local community, communication mostly with siblings or neighbours early on in life, also for writing, speaking, etc.
The 4th house represents your family, your home and your relationships with family either blood or chosen.
The 5th house represents creativity, hobbies, love and children.
The 6th house represents work, service to others, daily routines and health and wellness.
The 7th house represents relationships with romantic partners, marriage and contractual partners.
The 8th house represents transformation, sex and other people’s money.
The 9th house represents learning, higher education and religion or spiritual inclinations.
The 10th house represents career, status and your reputation in society.
The 11th house represents your friends, social circles, colleagues.
The 12th house represents your subconscious, dreams, intuitions, instincts and secrets.
