The study of astrology and how the movement of the planets affect us individually began 6,000 years ago. Much has been learned over centuries and the study of astrology was a respected science. Today in other countries astrology is still the study of scholars. In the U.S. astrology became a predictive measure that was based on one’s Sun sign (Aires, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo….).
When I do a full birth chart I look at much, much more than this. The entire chart, as it was set at your birth time, is considered. The particular planets are important as is the way the entire chart aligns. There are “easier” aspects and “more difficult” planetary aspects to consider.
As you learn about your unique chart, you can begin to see your particular strengths and challenges. Understanding your chart gives you another “language” to understand yourself. This understanding carries over to many aspects of your life from career to love. Often the birth chart “blueprint” is a key to navigate your life in the best possible way.
In addition to the birth chart I look at key transits. When I take your birth chart and line it up with current planetary movement, much can be learned about your current situation and upcoming events.
Other tools that can be used are maps based on astrocartography (map of the world and discovering best places to live for your desired outcome). I also work in depth with compatibility charts. This can be charts between loved ones, co-workers, family etc.
