The Natal Chart
Defining the Universal Blueprint
Astrological art and science stretches far and wide. Its foundation lies upon the belief that terrestrial life is intimately connected to planetary force and movement. To understand the particulars, and how they relate to us - we are gifted the natal chart. A map of the cosmos depicting the arrangement of planetary beings, in orbit of the Sun at the time of our brith. Astronomical calculations produce this phenomena, which is entirely personal to us, rich in symbology and directly related to the conditions of our health, characteristic nature, life trajectory and relationships, monetary conditions, professional activities, successes and personal challenges. Depending upon the astrological discipline, seven to ten planets (incl. luminaries) are shown. The planetary beings are the most important feature of astrology, as they form the structure of our inner nature and external life circumstances through the assignment of various rulerships.
the Sun governs our sense of identity, ambition, willpower, masculine energy, vitality, strength, conditions around honour and success, powers of influence and prestige, personal reputation, relationship to father, male figures, rules daytime
the Moon relates to our emotional urges and responses, impulses to nurture and be nurtured, feminine energy, women particularly mother, domestic urges, habituated emotional behaviour, tradition and connections to the past, rules the night
Mercury rules intellectual and communicative faculties, rational and logical mind, trickery, language, frenetic mental energy, writing, science, negotiating and business trading

creativity, artistry, sweet tastes, music, beauty, vanity, adornments, fashion and female figures

Extending beyond the personal sphere, an astrological chart involving these planets can be drafted for other contexts. To gauge
the impact of planetary conditions within economic and socio-political climates. As a personal tool however, the natal chart which encompasses many other factors, is an amazing celestial lens. It's made available for us to view our life lucidly and live it better, as we interact with the celestial forces overhead.
