How to “Simply” Read Your Birth Chart
As life passes, we experience new things that continuously show us different aspects of our personalities. As human beings we are ever changing with time but still, we live by our own standards. Everyone has their likes and dislikes; some people like long lasting relationships while others prefer to never give marriage or committed relationships a thought. Some people are leaders and others, followers.
If you would like to understand yourself a little better or compare compatibility between you and a loved one or friend, I would suggest looking up a Natal or “Birth” Chart online. There is a list of links on the bottom of this blog to help you further. Here are a few things you should know before you do…
Accuracy: The Time, Date, and Year you were born, of course 😉
Houses: There are 12 Houses in a Chart, the chart is a circle divided into 12 sections or “houses”, similar to the 12 signs of the zodiac. Here, according the the day, time, and year you were born, explains what planets, stars, and moons, all referred to as “Planets” were located and aligned in specific parts of the universe, aligning together with certain signs of the zodiac.
A simple outline of each house is:
1st – Self, appearance, approach
2nd – Financial, value, earning capacity
3rd – Immediate environment, the mind
4th – Base of operations, the home, end of a matter
5th – Romance, speculation, children
6th – Health, Work/Profession
7th – Marriage, partnerships
8th – Death, sex, regeneration
9th – Religion, philosophies, higher education
10th- Career, superiors
11th- Friends, hopes and dreams
12th- Self communion, sub-conscious
