Do you know your astrological birth chart? Do you even know what one is? This is 2500 year old means of showing you your best actions and pathways in life, and it all starts from a measurement of exactly when and where you were born.

Let’s start at the beginning – the birth chart.

A birth chart

You can map your birth chart from knowing the time, day, month and year you were born as well as the exact location you were. This shows the stars’ and constellations’ position relative to you on Earth and everyone is unique.

One beautiful example of a visual rendition of a birth chart is the Birth of My Stars and Planets display, which shows exactly how the skies would have looked the moment you were born. Deeper research from there can show your character traits and your sensitivities – essentially the ingredients that make you who you are from the moment you took your first breath.

Parenting and guidance is never perfect which is why people sometimes follow the wrong path in life, ending up with mental illnesses, taking drugs, ending up in prison or just feeling totally lost in this world with no idea how to come back from our faulty decisions. This is why it is really important to know from whence we came. If you want you can also name a star after yourself once you know your birth constellation.

Two readings a year

While it is just as well to get a reading of your birth chart and chart of today any time of the year it is very important to get a reading on your birthday and at New Year’s Day, at the time you were born and measuring your new location. According to Astro Style, “A trained astrologer would compare and contrast the two charts. When a transiting (orange) planet makes contact with one of the natal (blue) planets, it activates specific energy, one that can be either opportune or challenging. Knowing this allows you to plan ahead.”

In having a good idea what you will face in the coming weeks or months, it can give you an idea how best to act and react to a situation. Perhaps it might be time to double down on your personal goals or go easy on a loved one in difficult times?

Other astrological readings

Beyond the immediate future (and on a birthday chart, the year ahead), the birth chart can also show how compatible you are with a potential partner. Astro Style again: “A synastry chart compares and contrasts the planets in your chart and the other person’s. A composite chart averages out your two charts using a “midpoint method.” It creates a single, blended chart that reveals the essence of your relationship. A composite chart treats your relationship as if it was its own entity or a third “person” (which in many ways is true!).”

Other charts can guide you when to have a particular event such as a wedding or family celebration. They all stem from that one magical moment when you came from your mother’s womb. Having the Birth of My Stars and Planets display starts it all off!
