Astrology, Karma and Transformation: The Inner Dimensions of the Birth Chart by Chart Interpretation Handbook: Guidelines for Understanding the Essentials of the Birth Chart by Stephen Arroyo.Hey guys! Welcome back to Lavendaire, I continue this series of fun self-discovery tools on my channel, so if you missed the first article I was talking about tarot cards and how to use them as a beginner because I'm a beginner, today I am super excited to be talking about astrology. Astrology is something that I've been dealing with for most of my life, literally since I was a kid, and it's not that I'm an expert on it or anything. But I was more into astrology and natal chart reading last year than I read Steven Forrest's book The Inner Sky.
I've learned a lot about reading the natal chart, a lot about astrology and the meaning of I know I know more about astrology than the average person. So this article is for the average person. If you are an expert there is no need to look at this.
But I just want to explain astrology more deeply than just your sun signs. So get ready for a fun article! First things first, let's clarify: astronomy is the scientific exploration of celestial bodies, so it is based on cts and research, and astrology is the interpretation of celestial bodies, that is, this is how we interpret what is on Heaven is. It's the poetry, it's the art.
But it's really cool that everything has a meaning and it's not exactly scientific, but it's more of an art. So what is a natal chart? Your astrological natal chart is basically a snapshot of the sky at the time and place where you were born, where in the world you were born and the exact time, it is the picture of what is in heaven. It is a kind of map of all the planets, the sun and the moon.
So it is very important to be precise about the exact time that you were born because every hour or two your natal chart changes because the sky moves - no, the earth moves - and so moves the snapshot of the sky were born if you can get your exact natal chart r side note: if you are chinese, i know there is a superstition in chinese culture, because of feng shui and all that stuff, never to give your date / time of birth to anyone out there. So I don't want to post my exact natal chart or anything. But it's because we believe that once someone knows your exact date and time of birth, they'll know a lot about your destiny and people can use it against you.
So this is something that I personally - because my mom influenced me - personally I would like to keep it a little bit more secret, so just let you guys know. So how do you get your natal chart read? There are many websites where you can enter this information. Café Astrology is one, Astro.com is another.
And there are also plenty of mobile apps that you can use to check your natal chart. My favorite astrology app is co-star. This one is very modern and chic and outlines your natal chart and all of the details in a very neat way.
So check out these - I'll link them below. Now let's talk about the original triad which is your sun, moon, and ascendant. Sometimes people also refer to the ascendant as their 'ascending' sign.
In general, these are the three most important signs on your natal chart. So you might see other people who are really interested in astrology, they will list all three signs because all three are important in listing more than just your sun sign. Your sun sign only depends on the day you were born what time of year you were.
I was born in October so I'm a Libra. BTW, I have this diary where I made a lot of notes from the astrology book I read so I can refer to it now and then. In general, your sun sign represents your ego, your personality, your self-image.
It's the core of who you are. Your moon sign represents your emotional self. Your moon is your sensitivity, your emotions, your feelings, your mood, your heart.
Sometimes people refer to their moon sign more than their sun sign because your moon is your emotional self and you feel more with that sign. And whatever sign you are in your moon, that is an indication of what makes you happy and what makes you feel fulfilled. Well, I'm a Sagittarius moon and Sagittarius is adventure and exploration, trying new things, and I can often really relate to that too.
Your ascending or 'ascending' sign is essentially your mask for the world. It's how other people perceive you. Think of it as a first impression.
Other people may see you in a certain way when they first meet you, and then when they get to know you they realize, 'Oh, you really are like a different kind of person.' So your ascendant is how you appear to be Other, and just so you know, my rising sign is Gemini. By the way, in order not to make this article too long, I am not going to go into the details of the meaning of each sign, planet, and all because there are tons of resources online about that.
I'm actually going to make simple notes for you to read on my blog post, just quick keywords and notes on each character, planet, or house. After receiving your natal chart, you can write down your sign, moon, and rising sign. And then you can take a look at the notes I made on my blog post and see what corresponds to each character.
One way to understand your original triad sign is to summarize it in a sentence like this: 'I am a __, with the soul of a __, wear the mask of a __' Depending on your sign, you will find the meaning and the archetype of your sign and just pocket the words. For example for me: I'm an artist with the soul of a philosopher wearing the mask of a teacher, that's because an artist is what a Libra is, the philosopher is an archetype of the Sagittarius moon and the teacher is one of the archetypes for a twin. I hope this made sense and I hope it helped.
So that was the basics. Ready to dive deeper? Let's go! Let's talk about the constituent parts of the natal chart. As I mentioned earlier, there are 12 signs, you've heard these before - Aries, Scorpio, Libra, Leo - all of these I know do not take them one after another.
And then there are ten planets, and after 'planets'
Planets with directional strength are very strong. Mercury and Jupiter are strongest when in the First House, Venus and Moon when in the Fourth house, Mars and the Sun (and the South Node) when in the Tenth House, and Saturn (and the North Node) when in the Seventh House.
Life certainly has its grace and challenges. Situations and experiences in our life constantly require us to grow and develop as spiritual beings. Powerful tools like astrology can help us see exactly what these experiences are and what we can do to use these experiences as opportunities for our spiritual development.
In astrology, our life experiences of the planets can be seen in the natal chart. Everyone Planet is associated with a unique type of experience; for example, some planets like Venus are considered benefactors, where the experiences associated with it are about opportunity and joy, while evildoers like Saturn are about challenge and necessity. Regardless of the planet involved, each of these experiences gives us the opportunity to develop into more rounded and healthier individuals.
Each of them is linked to an over- and under-extreme: polarities. One side of the planet is trying to pull us in, upward, to emphasize the dimension of the experience of this planet. While the other side of the planet tries to pull us down, emphasize the experience of this planet.
Both extremes are unhealthy and can lead to an unbalanced lifestyle as you can imagine is balance. To cultivate the centered, healthy expression of the characteristics of each planet. To do this, we need to understand what our natal chart says about our personal life experiences.
This is done by looking at the personal planets in our horoscope are the sun, moon and horoscope rulers. Together with the inner planets Mercury to Saturn. If you are new to astrology and are unfamiliar with identifying these personal components in the horoscope you can watch the short article that explains it in detail.
Before we proceed, you'll need a copy of your natal chart. If If you don't have one yet, you can use this fast and easy-to-use online horoscope calculator. Now, as you know so far, every airplane has a sign and house position associated with it.
The sign placement shows the 'qualities' of these experiences that we balance, and the house the 'realm of life' we balance to be on each of the planets. Some planets are stronger in some signs and houses while they are weaker in others. For example, the assertive and achievement-oriented nature of Mars is best at the top of the table in 10th house or Capricorn.
Conversely, he doesn't feel very comfortable at the lower end of the chart or in Cancer. How a planet is placed in the horoscope, both in sign and house placement, can show us the natural tendency of the planet to be balanced or unbalanced. In other words, when a planet is placed in a sign and a house, if it is strong and comfortable, then these qualities will be easier to balance than if the planet is placed in an unpleasant sign or house.
This is known as the 'strength' of the sign and house of a planet. You can use these PDFs to see the sign and house strengths of the planets in your natal chart. Write down the sign and house strengths of each personal planet.
Start with your most personal planets first. The next important point to consider when analyzing Should pay attention to the strength of a planet, its aspects are sign and house placement, how a planet relates to other planets on the map, shows us whether the natural tendency of the planet is balanced or unbalanced. Planets with sextiles and trigons are considered easy to work with, while squares and oppositions are more difficult to work with.
Conjunctions are considered naturally neutral and are more dependent on the planets involved. As before, start with aspects to and from your personal planets and then work your way up to the outer planets. Write the number of easy and challenging aspects next to each planet.
At this point in the exercise, you should have a general idea of which planets on your diagram are easier to balance than others. This depends on the strength of each one of the planets in relation to their sign, house and aspects. Name your planets from strongest to weakest.
Note that within each planet there are likely to be some properties that are both simple and easy challenging; precision is not required to order them, just use a general method that works for you. First, let's take a look at your strongest planets. These represent your greatest personality strengths.
They are great attributes to divert your time and energy into as you would normally expect and do not usually require additional attention to cultivate in an A. These are excellent traits that are easy to use need to be sharpened and refined further. Here is a list of what each of the planets represent to give you an idea of what these simpler expressions of your personality are all about.
With your more challenging planet these are your greatest growth potential and where you can develop spiritually.
Focus on balancing these aspects of your personality. The more integrated and balanced you are, the better. As for the kindness, you and those around you will see yourself.
Think of these as areas that you can work on so that you can have a more balanced, healthier life. Note that these will be your greatest gifts to the world when incorporated in a healthy way. Use the same list of planetary meanings to see this potential for your personality to grow.
To go deeper, you can look at how to specifically balance each of the various signs, houses, and aspects associated with your personal planets. You can use these PDFs to see exactly how this can be done. Remember that the strongest planets in your chart will more easily express these characteristics, areas and aspects of life.
While the weaker planets need more attention to balance your spiritual development. By cultivating your strengths and balancing your weaknesses, as seen in the natal chart.

Maharishi Parasara was the first to use this term in his monumental classic Brihat Parasara Hora Shastra (BPHS) showing that this scientific basis of Astrology was at different stages of development and that the rules and principles had not been fully revealed.
Astrology has been rejected by the scientific community as having no explanatory power for describing the universe. Scientific testing has found no evidence to support the premises or purported effects outlined in astrological traditions. Where astrology has made falsifiable predictions, it has been falsified.
Acharya Shree, what are your comments on astrology? Astrology is anchored in Indian culture. They have a different name. They say, 'What does my horoscope say?'.
They think it is Vedic astrology. Vedic means how old. It's a chart.
It has 12 houses. And there are different types of nakshatras in 12 houses. and Grahas.
Planets as we call them. In fact, there are many planets that are moving, rotating, so we look at them and they are effective because they are in the larger shape. You are bigger than the earth.
Or bigger than Mars. Bigger than sometimes bigger than Jupiter.
But in our solar system there is only I think Jupiter is considered very big. So there are nine main planets. So astrology is the belief that if you are born in a certain time and all of these planets are made to affect your body as if their effects are already in the body.
Suppose Jupiter ...
Jupiter was near you when you were born. Or Mars was near you. So your body has this effect.
That is belief and it has been around for thousands of millennia. And whenever these planets rotate at certain angles or move at certain angles so that it creates such a situation, it can happen prosperity happens for a certain country or area south or north or east .
Or a certain type of person. That's what we call them, 'Oh, this person is born with stars very happy'.
Or a person is out of luck, that person is born with bad stars. This is astrology. Astrology is determined by the astrologer, just as the same event has happened for thousands of years when it turns in certain angles or certain circles which they determine that this will happen.
But that's not necessarily. It's just their belief. As in Hindu culture, Rama is said to be given the crown.
He is said to be a king of the Ayodhya. But the same day, instead of becoming king, he was exiled did not work. And his kula guru - says the astrologer - was very well known.
And he set the time of the crown. But he was banished on the other side. So he didn't it's not essential for astrology to work.
But let me tell you because people have the wrong idea about astrology. In fact, astrology means that there are many stars or planets that affect you. Yes, the energy affects us because even though Jupiter is far from us, the energy of Jupiter is still affecting us, or the Martian energy is still affecting us because we are talking about large planets, bigger than Earth.
Moon is closest. So the moon affects more. Our emotions.
When it is Venus, Venus is also around us, so it affects more. People become emotional and they become very much alive and they become radiant when Venus is near you when you are born . Or when it turns again and comes to you.
Because we know the speed of each planet, because they spin. That is mathematically anyone can calculate it. And now the computer simply does the math.
This is how you can create your horoscope and you can see where Venus is, where Jupiter is, how much I am affected by it. Affected by them means to be affected by their energy. That is what it means.
If you are affected by Saturn, Saturn is usually leading you the wrong way. But if you are affected by Mercury, it will take you into business. If you are affected by Jupiter, you will get a much higher education.
So they have different meanings and different results. But let me tell you the simple way: because your energy influences you, let's say you are going to school and you are trying too hard, try you work hard to learn.
But you cannot learn. So somehow your body lacks Jupiter energy. So what will an astrologer suggest you get the little stone, and when you get this stone it is yellow, it is not a sapphire, it is not a ruby ... it is a yellow stone and it is a citrine is an alternative too if you don't get this very expensive.
But you can get citrine, it is not expensive. So you wear the gold and wear that index finger. This is how you will begin to attract the Jupiter energy.
That'll be a channel. In fact, these stones are on this earth. Because sometimes the pieces of every planet break and they fly to earth.
And when we get the original citrine or the stone for Jupiter, so what will happen, it will be a channel for the Jupiter energy. Once you wear it, you start to lose weight in class. That will happen.
Basically, they affect us because they have tremendous energy. So if they have tremendous energy and we lack it, so not, we can't bring the whole planet here, but we can get this kind of remedy - stones - because the sun is ruby, the moon is pearl, Mars is Moonga ...
It is called Moonga (red coral). I don't know the English name, but for Mercury it's a green stone, it's emerald. And for Jupiter it's citrine or some other name ((yellow sapphire and alternatively is topaz)) it doesn't just come to me.
But for Venus it is sapphire ((white sapphire or diamond)). For Saturn also sapphire ((blue sapphire)). For Venus it can actually also be diamond.
Instead of sapphire, it's a diamond. And for Saturn is a sapphire ((blue sapphire)). Thats how it works.
It becomes a channel and attracts the kind of energy that our body lacks. And if we can attract that type of energy, it will work. So if the Saturn energy is working positively in your body, then you have access to business.
But if it doesn't work, you will have a hard time succeeding in the same thing people think someone is emotional, so they get that they wear the silver ringa bead. It affects them because it becomes a channel for the moon. So the moon energy is balanced.
Astrology is balancing when you know it mathematically ...
That's why bad astrologers don't know this concept. You look at this stone, you carry this stone, you carry this stone, you will be fine, you will be bad - - that's not the way. You need to understand what is lacking in your body.
Then you can, then astrology can be the way it's supposed to work. What is a flaw to attract, find the canal. And astrology somehow, if it's calculated correctly, it works almost 70 percent right.
But if it's not calculated correctly, it can be completely wrong. So I am not going to suggest that you go to the astrologer. Just be savvy yourself.
According to psychologists, there are several reasons. Human beings constantly seek narratives to help weave their past, present, and future together through their goals and expectations and that's where astrology comes in. Studies also show that people often turn to astrology in response to stress and anxiety. .
0 degree in astrology means that a planet or a house cusp at the 0 degrees of a sign. It is considered a critical degree. 0 degree in astrology is like when the native -who has a planet or the house cusps there- is standing on a threshold or at the doorstep of a room. Hasn't been there, has no experience there. .
Because the angular houses are the most powerful places in the chart (Lilly says 'Planets in angles do more forcibly show their effects'), succedent houseswhich are less powerful than the angular but more powerful than the cadent housesalso have a quality of appertaining to the angular houses, much as a ...
Summary Of The Book
How To Judge A Horoscope (Volume 1) gives readers a practical insight into understanding a horoscope. This book concentrates on the first six houses that talk about the journey of a soul, beginning from birth. It makes astrology more accessible to the layman, with lucid and simple language.
Astrology purports that astronomical bodies have influence on people's lives beyond basic weather patterns, depending on their birth date. This claim is scientifically false. As published in Nature, he found that the astrologers could do no better at predicting the future than random chance. .
1. Astrology has no solid evidence for whatever it says. According to astrologers, change in the motion of planets will have a change in your personality but then there so many planets other than the known ones that have been found by NASA. .
