You probably know your sun sign but you need to know the position of all your zodiac signs (yes, everyone has more than one dominant sign) to really get the most out of your horoscope. And that’s what an astrology chart does. If you really want to dig deep into your stars, you may want to consult a reputable astrologer because there’s a lot to unravel. However, just getting to know the basics of your planetary positions will give you a much more thorough understanding of your horoscope. Back in the old days, you needed a very large book and a LOT of time to map an astrology chart but now, thanks to the Internet, it’s easy to create one instantly for free. All you need are your birthday, time of birth and place of birth. Astrology Club has a simple calculator.
Your zodiac sign chart
There are actually three major zodiac signs in your chart: sun (based on your birthday), rising and moon. Although we tend to identify ourselves based on our sun signs, it’s actually the rising sign characteristics that tend to describe your outward personality. Your sun sign traits emerge over time as people get to know you and your moon sign reveals your most hidden nature. Astrology-Numerology.com is a great place to find a mini reading for your Sun/Moon combination.
Elements and qualities also play a role in how to interpret your zodiac signs. Every sign is ruled by one of four elements: earth, air, fire or water; and each has one of three qualities: mutable, fixed and cardinal. Cardinal signs are leaders, mutable signs are changers and fixed signs are stabilizers. The elements are pretty self-descriptive. Fire signs are spirited; earth signs are practical; water signs are emotional and air signs are intellectual.
All of this info is fairly straightforward and easy for the amateur astrologer to understand and it will give you a much more complete picture of horoscope. The astrology chart also includes a list of the aspect and house for each planet in your sign as well as a planetary pattern. These are more complicated concepts so you may want to leave interpreting them to a professional. If you like a challenge, find out more about aspects at Astro.com; houses at Cafe Astrology and patterns at Astrotheme. Now go reach for the stars!
