Astrology can help us determine a lot of facts about people and events.
It can help us determine individual traits of people and the events they could likely experience. It can also help us determine the possible outcome of different situations, the compatibility of partners and longevity of relationships, and many other matters.
Unfortunately, astrology still doesn’t have the rightful recognition it deserves despite of its value.
Planets in houses individual charts and synastry meaning
The natal chart represents an image of the positions of the planets for a certain moment in time, usually the birth of a person.
The natal chart consists of 12 houses and the planets placed in these houses reveal the areas of life that are likely to be influenced by the energy of the planets in them.
