Astrologists analyze the positions of the planets and stars to make predictions about the future. A natal chart is a snapshot of where all of the cosmic bodies were located on the exact date and time of an individual’s birth. Each planet’s placement has specific meanings that describe a person’s life path, their strengths and weaknesses, and their personality.
Natal charts are divided into 12 houses, each symbolizing an aspect of human life. For example, the third house represents childhood while the 10th house symbolizes careers and accomplishments. Each house coordinates with one zodiac sign, which varies depending on birthdate and location.
However, the location of the planets and houses can differ between two people born on the same day. By interpreting the meanings of each planet’s placement relative to the houses, signs, and each other, astrologers can help individuals understand their life’s purpose.
