Introduction To Natal Chart
The natal chart, also the astrological chart, is a way to depict the area around our planet at the time of birth. A natal chart is merely a cosmic portrait, a snapshot of the universe at the moment of birth. We are aware that everything is in motion. The Earth rotates on its axis once every 24 hours in addition to the planets, which move slowly and at various speeds in enormous, elongated orbits around the Sun. Each of us is exposed to all 360 degrees of the zodiac during the course of a day as the Earth rotates. The natal chart is a representation of the world as it is at a specific time by stopping the cosmic clock.
The natal chart of your child is like a mandala or personal cosmic portrait. It is stated that anything born in time acquires the characteristics of the instant in which it occurs. The natal chart of your child paints a picture of who he/she is and what he/she might develop into.
The positive and negative karma that will occur in cycles of time are depicted in astrology. Though they are always sowed in the present, can we read the seeds of the future? Reading the signs of the times and listening to what they have to say about ourselves, both now and in the future, is the main focus of the study of astrology. So astrology is a form of prophecy. However, we are aware that prophecy can be modified, changed, or lessened by exercising free will, making the right or incorrect choices, praying, and being mindful of oneself.
The readings of the Sun sign that we see in the majority of newspapers are very different from the work of trained astrologers. One of many variables that experts consider is the sign the Sun was in on the day of your birth (for example, Aries, Taurus, or Gemini). Most professionals also use the time and location of birth in addition to the day and year of birth. Your birthdate, year, location, and time are all necessary to determine your exact position in time and space. An astrologer constructs what is known as a natal or birth chart using this data (sometimes called a horoscope).
The exact positions of the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto are shown in each natal chart. The planets are then positioned in a chart wheel, a circular layout. The sky as seen from the birthplace at the time of birth is represented by the small diagram.
Structure and Modalities
The properties of the 12 zodiac signs vary. Some sign categories have characteristics in common. Elements and modalities are the two most used techniques for sign grouping. When producing counts or totals, astrologers like to first determine which of the groupings the natal planets belong to. Calculating your Sun, Moon, and planets as well as your elemental and modality balance is enjoyable. While doing this, keep in mind that we frequently attract to ourselves—or ultimately become—what we desire (or lack—and we make the best of what we have). You can get a better understanding of your child’s natural temperament and behaviour by looking at the elements in her chart.
Remember that your totals for these points may differ significantly from others. You are a doer, for instance, if you have many Cardinal planets. However, if your child lacks (wants) Cardinal planets and is strong on Fixed, she may have a tougher time getting started than you, but once she does, her efforts may be more consistent. You will be able to master your own chart and have greater patience with your child if you are aware of your similarities and differences.
