What Is A Birth Chart And What Is Its Purpose?

Astrology is based on the study of the planets, their positions, their movements and their interactions with each other. By observing a birth chart, an astrologer can accurately determine future events, a person's personality, strengths, weaknesses and even their love compatibility. Our chief astrologist Susan Taylor gives us more information on this fascinating aspect and explains why it's so useful and when it should be consulted.

Many of us read our daily horoscopes every morning in order to get ahead. If horoscopes are everywhere in our favorite magazines and even on the radio, the workings of astrology remain rather unknown. Which is a pity because it is a rich mine of information for those who want to know the future, to know themselves better and to improve their relationships.

What is a birth chart?

A birth chart is the study of the position of the planets in the sky at the time you were born. In other words, it is a photograph, a map of the sky at the time of birth.

Birth chart

In order to be as accurate as possible a natal chart needs to be precise, including the day, time and place of birth of the person. Our zodiac signs are determined by the position of the Sun at the time of birth.

Why is a birth chart useful?

The natal chart is on the basis of any astrological study and its uses are numerous because everything is inscribed in a natal chart. It indicates the main trends of the one’s personality, the possibilities of success and the areas of predilection.

It also indicates the predispositions of each person in the different areas including love, money and work. Obviously, a chart does not show everything, because it simply reflects the influence of the planets. The astrologer must also take into account the sex of the person, their backgrounds and their education.

One should not constantly try to anticipate the future at the risk of "ruining the magic of the moment". Astrology makes it possible to anticipate events and determine the most favorable moments for such and such an activity. In short, astrology allows us to choose the right moments and to behave better in front of situations.

In what situations can analyzing a birth chart be helpful?

When dealing with relationship problems

If a person encounters emotional problems, relational difficulties or repeated love failures the position of Venus in a natal chart explains the person's way of loving and certain blockages.

For example, people who are born with a Venus-Neptune Conjunction are people who will fall in love more easily than others. They idealize love far too much and often fall into toxic relationships. They often fall for people who are not free, platonic loves or even sacrificial loves... Knowing this, we can overcome our problems thanks to a psychological work on ourselves.

When faced with professional issues

Are you fed up with your current job? Wondering when you're going to find something better? Looking for a job, wondering when you're going to get a permanent contract? Ditto! Thanks to your natal chart, the astrologer will look at the transits and see if it's the right time or not... And this works every time.

When you're going through personal problems

By studying your natal chart, an astrologer can see where you are at psychologically and in terms of the events of your life and thus help you move in the right direction.
