Astrology is a study of the impact that distant cosmic objects, usually stars and planets, have on human life.
There is hardly anyone who does not know their zodiac sign. However, this is far from enough to provide any explanation for the character, interests and life path of the individual. For such a detailed and personalized description, it is necessary to make a birth chart that can be read by an experienced astrologer.
WHAT IS A BIRTH CHART?
Natal astrology is one of the most important sections of traditional astrology that deals with the study of birth charts or birth horoscopes.
The word «natal» is derived from Latin and means «related to birth». Therefore, natal astrology is based on the date, time and place of birth at which birth charts are drawn. They show the location of the stars and planets at the moment of the child’s birth, which reflects on the events of his or her future life.
Birth charts can provide information about:
- Health status — whether the person will become ill often and what diseases he/she will be predisposed to;
- Material well-being;
- Love life;
- Intellectual development, hobbies, and work.
It is important to note that the birth chart is not a concrete prediction of life events. Rather, it is a guide to what someone’s life has the potential to be like. Let’s say that according to your birth horoscope you will have success in the field of art. That doesn’t mean you could never get into the business, for example. Just the latter would cost you more effort.
Astrologers believe that the fate of a person is set at the moment of conception. This can be understood by the zodiac sign and the location of other planets. It is believed that boys are born if, at the time of conception, the moon was in one of the «male» signs — Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, and Aquarius. The rest are «female».
Proponents of astrology claim that it is an exact science in which nothing is occult. According to skeptics, the truth of the predictions is just a happy coincidence. Do you think that there is a connection between birth charts and real-life events?
