Welcome to Astro Astrologer

From sun signs to houses, and planets to polarities, astrology is much more complex than your daily horoscope would lead you to believe. In this article we will briefly discuss the different subjects that make up an astrological chart (natal charts), and go into small detail in regards to sun signs.

Astrology literally means the ‘Study of Stars’. Long ago astrology and astronomy were considered one subject, in modern times however, the two have separated. Astrology now falls into a branch of science classified as metaphysics and is based off the principle that the locations and movements of planetary bodies have an influence or effect on us and the world we live in. It is important to know that astrology does not predict the future, instead it helps us interpret our natural characteristics, understand our feelings, and know what energies will have a dominate effect with our decision making. When most people hear the term ‘Astrology’ they think of their ‘Sign’. The full term for this is the ‘Sun Sign’, and it is the most basic form of astrology practiced. A sun sign is determined by where the sun was at your time of birth. There are twelve signs in total, and each sign spans a specific number of days. Whether the person is born near the beginning, middle, or end of that time frame can have an effect on how the sign affects them.

Along with the different classes of sun signs, there are many other categories that influence and impact an astrological chart. For example, there are thirteen planets read in astrology. These planets consist of more bodies than the average person learns in school: the Sun, the Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Chiron, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto, the North Node and the South Node. Each planetary body is associated with specific characteristics. Notice that the Earth is not included in this list, as it is the location of your origin.

There are also twelve different houses that account for different life stages or aspects of life. In western astrology the houses have no specific titles other than being called first, second, third and so on. A planet can be in a house, opposing a house, neighboring a house, and so on. To go with the different houses there are also six different pairs of house polarities. Polarities explain the relationship that these items have due to their opposite ends on their spectrums. To have a more in-depth evaluation of a person there are many aspects of astrology that must be considered. A professional astrologer can calculate your full chart by using information such as where you were born and the day, month, year, and even time of your birth. Given the intricate relationship between each category involved, astrology is not a subject learned quickly. That being said, it is certainly captivating and there is a wealth of information available to beginners.
