Tracking the connection between the picture of the starry sky and global cosmic processes and events occurring on Earth as a whole and in the destinies of people, tireless researchers gradually formed a system of knowledge - astrology. The most important tool is the natal chart.
What is a natal chart
At its core, the natal chart is a complex and rigid structure or matrix that fixes the position of the luminaries, planets and the connection between them at the moment of the beginning of an event. Most often, a natal chart is a person's individual horoscope at the time of his birth, which affects his entire life.
The visually natal birth chart is a circle divided into 12 sectors - zodiac signs. It displays the symbols of the planets and aspects that show the interaction between them. The circle is divided into so-called houses. Each house is responsible for this or that sphere of life: the first person is himself, the second is his finances, the third is his immediate surroundings, the fourth is his house and family, and so on.
The arrow indicates the beginning of the first house or the ascendant - the rising degree of the zodiac, which is exactly on the horizon at the moment of birth.
How to make a natal chart
Before the first computer programs for astrologers were developed, all calculations were performed manually based on accurate astronomical data. Today, in order to make a natal chart, it is enough to know the date, place and time of birth. These data are entered into the program, which itself produces all necessary calculations and produces the result.
Now there are many programs for calculating natal charts. However, it should be borne in mind that not all programs in which it is proposed to form a natal chart on-line are accurate enough. Of the proven astrologers is, for example, the product ZET - the eighth and ninth versions.
How to decipher a natal chart
If you have not yet decided to apply to the services of a professional astrologer, and curiosity to learn about what the stars say about you, does not go away, then you need a natal card with decoding.
According to many astrologers, almost 50% of the personal characteristics embedded in the natal chart are contained in the description of three factors: the position of the ascendant, the sun and the moon in the signs and houses of the natal chart, their interaction with each other, and also in connection with other planets with the help of aspects .
Accordingly, looking at the natal chart and, having determined, let's say that the ascendant is in the sign of Scorpio, you can get a lot of information:
- about appearance - dense, broad bones, piercing and magical look, about looking at the surrounding world - alert, suspicious;
- about character - such people possess purposefulness, observant and resolute. Nevertheless, the ascendant Scorpio, having received at birth, the Sun in Leo, will behave quite differently than with the Sun in Pisces. In the first case, such a person will strive to shine and dominate, and in the second - to differ sensitivity and vulnerability.
Adding to the description the position of the Moon in the horoscope, which determines the emotional behavioral component and habits, you will outline a fairly complete psychological portrait, and the natal chart will acquire much greater meaning.
Astrology is science or magic
During its entire existence, astrology tries to establish itself in the right to be called science. After all, it is based on extremely accurate astronomical data and thousands of times the statistically correlated relationship between what is happening in space and the reflection of this on the fates of people.
The problem is that there are a lot of astrological factors. What exactly from this set of characteristics will affect this particular person, say with 100% probability will not take any practice. A competent astrologer will only indicate the probability of an event and will orient with respect to the possible time of its occurrence.
Astrologists are conditionally divided into two types: the Mercurians and the Uranians. The tracing natal chart on Mercury has a good knowledge base, thoroughly studying what this or that factor means. Astrologers of the second type, who have found mutual understanding with the higher planet - Uranus, the information comes directly from outer space in the form of sudden illuminations. Ideally, a good specialist needs knowledge, a lot of practice and the ability to read the whole natal chart. The latter will accompany those who have the talent of an astrologer, or who in the process of long practice has managed to establish a dialogue with higher matters.
How to use the results of treating the natal chart
Without astrological education it will be difficult to understand how the results of the interpretation of the natal chart issued by the program can be useful. Perhaps you will learn something new about yourself, understand the reasons - why one way or another react to different life situations.
An experienced astrologer will not only point out your strengths and weaknesses, but also choose methods for correcting the horoscope, recommend what steps you need to take to work out the negative impact of the natal chart and strengthen the favorable trends.
It is worth noting that people actively engaged in spiritual practices, unselfishly and happily helping the needy, overcome the negative impact of their natal chart much faster.
Significant success in something due to own efforts; harmonious love relationships; the acquisition of strong teachers, instructing in the direction of constant development - all this also is able to minimize dependence on the destiny predestined in the natal chart.
