Have you ever wondered where you fit in the universe? What did the galaxy look like when you were born? And, how did it affect who you are today? Well, that’s exactly what your birth chart reveals. This article will give you a quick overview of how birth charts are made, and what they say about you as a person.
What the heck is a birth chart?
A birth chart (also called a natal chart) is a map of the sun, moon and planets at the moment you were born. So, in essence, the birth chart is a map of the universe with you at the center to show your exact location in space and time when you entered existence in this world.
What does a birth say about you?
A birth chart reveals your personality and potential in life, as determined by the celestial world at your birth.
For example, if you’re a compulsive person with penchant for making rash decisions and bad career moves, your birth chart could have already revealed these traits long ago. On the opposite side of the spectrum, your birth chart could reveal that you have a great potential in your career, love life and financial future.
Here’s a short list of personality traits your birth chart can reveal:
- Your happiness
- Your compatibility with others
- Your communicative abilities
- Your desires and pleasures
- Your ambitions and career potential
Example Birth Chart
Look at the illustration of the birth chart on this page. Just a bunch of pictures and squiggly lines, right? No, not exactly.
If you look closely, you’ll see the 12 zodiac signs, symbols that represent the the sun, moon and planets, and 12 numbers for the astrological “houses,” which all have significance on different areas of life, such as beauty, career potential and so on.
In your own birth chart, lines would be drawn in the center based on the exact degrees of your time/date of birth in relation to the position of the celestial bodies. When completed, those lines and angles will map out your personality as it’s determined by those celestial effects! Pretty neat, right?
