The study of astrology is essential for giving us information about people and different life circumstances and it cannot be ignored. It gives us information that we could not otherwise discover.
It can also inform us about people’s characters, their interests and goals, their preferences, obstacles they might come across, and the outcomes of different situations in their lives, as well as the outcomes of their relationships, and give us answers about many other topics.
The interpretation in astrology starts with the creation of the natal chart, which represents the image of the planetary positions in the sky at the moment of making the chart.
The chart has 12 houses where the planets are placed. The details of the natal chart give the astrologer answers to all questions.
Planets in houses in individual charts and synastry meaning
The creation of the natal chart is the start of the astrology interpretation. In the past, this was a time-consuming process, which required a lot of knowledge and time, plus the results were often inaccurate.
In time, the process of astrology calculations became more precise, but the true revolution was the making of astrology programs which shortened the time for calculating the birth chart to only seconds.
Now everyone can calculate their natal chat, but not everyone can analyze it. For accurate results and predictions, it is best to consult a professional astrologer.
The 12 houses in the natal chart have specific meanings and areas they rule.
When doing the interpretation of the chart, it is important to consult the planets inside the house (if there are any) as well as the house rulers. They give insight about the matters ruled by the house.
The planets inside the house add their influence and energy to the meaning of the specific house.
The houses with planets are the most significant because they give the astrologer the insight about where the focus of attention is as well as the areas where there is most action. They give additional information about the personality traits and the possible events the person might encounter.
The general interpretation of the natal chart starts with analyzing the meaning of the chart rulers (rulers of the sign on the Ascendant and the Sun sign), the rulers of the houses of the chart (the planets rulers of the signs on the house cusps), the meanings of the planets inside the houses of the natal chart, the meanings of the planets in different signs, the aspects between the planets, etc.
The thoroughness of the analysis and its accuracy depends on how knowledgeable and experienced the astrologer is.
By analyzing the planets inside the houses and the houses of the chart, the astrologer can discover details about someone’s behavior, beliefs, interests, attitude, appearance, their family members and ancestors, parents, children, siblings, neighbors, friends, social circle, enemies, communication skills, coworkers, work, career, profession, education, finances, travel, health and physical condition, etc.
Chiron – Basic Qualities
Chiron combines the traits of an asteroid and comet. This astronomical body was first discovered in 1977, and it was first believed to be an asteroid; later, traits of comet where discovered in Chiron, which makes it a hybrid.
Similar astronomical bodies were later discovered, with similar traits to Chiron and are called centaurs, after the creatures from Greek mythology, which were half human half horse.
Chiron was not an ordinary centaur; his mother was a water nymph and his father was the god Cronus.
Chiron was abandoned by his mother because of its strange appearance, and was adopted by the god Apollo; Apollo was the ruler of music, poetry, prophecy, healing, archery, art, etc.
Chiron learned a lot of these skills from Apollo. He was a teacher and astrologer.
Chiron was not like the other centaurs, because it had human front legs, while the other centaurs had all four horse legs. The tragedy of Chiron is that he was able to save others with his healing ability, but he was not able to do that for himself. This is why he is often called “wounded healer”.
Because of the symbolism linked to Chiron in mythology, in astrology, this astronomical body shows the areas of our life where we carry some wounds and past hurts from the past or often from some past incarnations.
Usually the house where Chiron is placed in the natal chart, shows areas where we often experience disappointments and failure, and we need to put in much more effort to succeed. These are often areas where we feel the sense of shame or guilt.
The main role of Chiron is to bring these issues to our awareness through experiences with Chiron nature.
These experiences help us heal and move on with our lives. The most important is to discover which areas are affected by Chiron wounds and the issues that need to be resolved.
They can be discovered through the house where Chiron is placed or its sign, but they might also be the areas where the person feels insecure or ashamed or experiences some other difficulties.
Chiron healing starts with accepting the issue we have and the fact that we need to resolve it. Often these are areas related to shame and ego, and it is hard for the person to admit they have a problem.
When the shame is confronted, the healing begins. It is important not to ignore Chiron issues and be brave enough to accept that we have a problem we need to deal with.
Until we learn Chiron mistakes, we will keep repeating the same mistakes and experiencing disappointments as a result.
