Astrology Chart Explained

An astrology chart is very popular for personality readings as they give highly accurate results.  Plus they can represent many aspects of life which are of importance in astrological readings.  An astrology chart is based on the universe map with the person or object to be studied placed at the center. In order to gain the required level of insight into a person’s potential and personality, an astrology chart must be constructed based on the time as well as the location in which the particular person was born. This implies that astrology charts are highly diverse and is very rare for different people to share similar aspects when it comes to development of the charts.  Below is an illustration of an astrology chart:

An astrology chart shows the positions of celestial bodies like the sun, moon, stars and other planets. These celestial objects are given their respective astronomical positions and this aspect is what is used to describe the astrological houses or signs that people fall into. In order to come up with the houses or signs that a person may fall into’ astrologers calculate the rising (or ascendant sign), plus other celestial positions.  The particular traits which are of interests in any astrological psych readings are influenced by the positions of the celestial bodies. Being that the planets, stars and all the other celestial bodies do move in relation to the other, this causes astrological readings for persons to vary based on aspects such as timing or locations.

Contrary to popular beliefs, astrology charts necessarily don’t have to be round as some do assume square shapes. This instance is brought about by the fact that when coming up with astrological birth chart design, astrologers may decide to have the Zodiac wheel or leave it out. The twelve zodiac signs are usually placed to occupy the outer portions of the chart wheel while the resulting segments do form the houses which a person’s trait and potential do fall into. The signs and houses do have significance say on many areas of a person’s life and that is why astrological readings are mostly concerned with these aspects. Once an astrological chart has been constructed, an astrologer will attempt to give interpretations based on what is observed in the zodiac signs and houses and assigning the best meaning to what the given houses and signs may signal.

There are many systems that can be used to calculate the assigned zodiac house categories. The quadrant system involves dividing the astrological chart into four quadrants by means of angles. Three houses are made to occupy each of the resulting quadrants and the houses are further categorized as either angular, succedent or cadent houses. Because the celestial bodies which are of astrological importance (i.e. the sun, moon, planets) are in constant motion relative to the earth, it implies that the astrology chart readings do change as well so as to conform to the timing and location a person may be. This therefore means that an astrology chart has to be constructed so as to accurately reflect every moment a person may be subjected to.
