Astrology for beginners: What is a natal chart?
Astrology is a discipline of thinking and a way of developing a new quality of consciousness. The task of astrology is to help a man to communicate more easily with life and to be more conscious and open-minded in all the changes and possibilities of realizing their meanings.
A horoscope or a natal chart represents the current “image” of the Cosmos at the time of your birth and place of birth. In this “picture” there is not only the Sun in a certain zodiac sign that is also a sign of your birth. There are dozens of objects of the Solar System, which do not have to be found at all in the sign in which you were born or in the sign of your Sun. All these objects are in mutual relations.
When creating a horoscope or a natal chart, not only the month and the day, but also the geographical coordinates of the place of birth and the time of birth are taken into account. Therefore, a person who was born at the same time, but in another place, will be different.
As a result, we come to the point that each person is unique. Astrology starts from the idea of man as a totally unique atom of the universe.
Personal horoscope represents the territory that we need to pass through life. The essence of astrology in interpreting the horoscope is a combination of the meanings of the four basic elements of astrology (planets, signs, aspects, and houses).
Interpreting a horoscope or a natal chart represents the collection and interpretation of more detailed information. For example, find a planet that is responsible for a question, then look at how it feels in the zodiac sign in it, and how its relationship with other planets is. Then it is necessary to look at where this is happening in relation to the houses.
What is the purpose and goal of Astrology?
The purpose of astrology is not to transfer responsibility to planets. Astrology is a development technique or tool. It answers questions such as our qualities and potentials, as well as what kind of strength and skill it takes to pass through each and every stage of our complete existence and individuality. It does not matter if an event is “good” or “bad”, but whether we are ready to get to know it with the result in terms of our growth.
The similarity between astrology and psychology is that both skills are based on the idea that each of us looks at the world in its unique way. Astrology is capable of showing the most empathetic emotions and psychological patterns. The real goal of astrology is to show the path of development, to help a person understand universal processes. By analyzing the horoscope, you can get important information about the development and movement characteristics. Astrology is the key to counseling, which makes it easy to search for answers.
