I did a free chart on some site ages ago. The lines in the center form a square, all the planets on the left side are directional while all the planets on the right are retrograde. It’s interesting but I suck at astrology so I couldn’t tell you anything about what it means lol
Well, a natal chart can be interesting.
Three planets in an air sign, one in a water sign, one in a fire sign, and five in an earth sign. A water sign ascendent.
The most important pieces seem to be the element triplicities, aspects between houses and planets, and the ascendent.
What can be an interesting tarot exercise can be creating your natal chart with them, and where they fall within a tree of life or death.
A deck like Duquettes ceremonial Magick deck can be interesting, when you add the court cards on the outside, and patching in the minor arcana. The minor arcana can be interesting in itself. Each of them in that deck have Goetic seals at the bottom, which can tell you who you might want to invoke or evoke, in the top it tells you what decan or degrees within the sign it falls on, as well as a truncated pyramid that you can scry with.
It also includes names of angels from the shemhamphoresh, zodiac angels. From The Shem Grimoire you can get their seals and work with them.
The biggest key to me is understanding the negative and positive aspects they convey between aspects and signs. With that, you know what you need to work on within yourself. A personal and spiritual alchemy process, not to annihilate bad aspects but to tame both, not to always be too negative or too positive, but to control those aspects and qualities.
Natal chart interpretation is a really complex thing to do. With not enough information, you can’t get a clear picture.
Let’s start just from your Sun, it could be in the 1st or in the 12th house, and that is very different…
I guess you unerstand.
This is a very interesting topic for me because i recently started studying astrology and find it absolutely fascinating. Im thinking of using the information from the natal chart to sort of tuning my magick accordingly. Like using some of the planets that are strongly positioned to help the work, and figure out how to fix some of the less favorable aspects. For me reading my chart has been very enlightening and confirmed some of the things i already knew about myself. A persons entire life is in the birth chart down to the minor details.
I was wondering if there is a good place to learn how to read the natal chart?
Mine says this:
Zodiac : Tropical
Gemini 26°24’ R
Aries 14°46’ R
Leo 2°32’ R
I am going to go look for myself as well. But a website would help if anyone knows of a reliable one please. I also have no idea when I was born as my birth certificate neglects to tell me. My mother and I are not on speaking terms and that will not be rectified in this lifetime.
