You have probably learned at some point in your science class how the moon cycle affects the tides and the water level. On a spiritual scale, astrology is the study of how the position and movements of celestial bodies–planets, stars, comets– affects the events, or people, on earth.
Your Natal chart (a.k.a. Birth chart) captures the position of the celestial bodies in the universe at the moment of your birth. This chart is a blueprint that provides you with information about you as a person–your tendencies, your potential, your weaknesses, your strength, your life patterns, and life lessons.
To give you an example: you may have a genetic trait of lactose intolerance. Knowing this information about yourself will not and cannot stop you from consuming dairy products. You still have the freewill to choose to drink milk, but you can also use the information to help you make more fitting food choices that won’t leave you with regrets later, in the bathroom.
Similarly, your birth chart provides you with information that creates awareness and alerts you of the potential issues or opportunities that you have the free will to change to live a happier life.
Let’s get you started on your journey to self-discovery and making healthy choices for a happy life.
