Astrology arouses a lot of interests in people because of their natural inclination to discover things about them and other people, but also about their future, as well as the outcome of different situations they encounter in life.

Despite that fact, many people are not aware of how powerful astrology is when its content is used by experienced and knowledgeable astrologers. It can give answers to almost any question we ask.

Astrology can give predictions about future events as well as about the outcomes of relationships between people.

Astrology analysis consists of analyzing the positions of planets at a certain moment in time placed inside a natal chart created for that moment.

Astrologers analyze the planets in Zodiac signs, their position in the houses of the natal chart, the aspects they make between them as well as the rulers of the houses in the natal chart.

The natal chart and many astrological calculations which in previous times required a lot of time are nowadays calculated in seconds through different astrological programs. Doing these calculations manually is a time-consuming process and requires knowledge.

The analysis of the natal chart and accurate predictions require a skillful astrologer with a lot of experience.

A skillful astrologer can give a lot of insight about a person by analyzing their natal chart, especially about their personal appearance, behavior, interests, focus of action as well as their goals.

Also, the astrologer is able to predict possible events the person could experience in their life.

Planets in houses – individual charts and synastry meaning

The natal chart is an image of the sky at a certain moment of time, containing the planets inside the 12 houses of the chart.

The natal chart is usually created for the moment of someone’s birth but natal charts can be created to analyze other situations and give answers for different questions.

The exact degree of each house is calculated through different house systems, and it is up to the astrologer to choose the house system which suits their work best.

The most important houses of a natal chart are those with planets inside. The planets inside a house influence the energy of the house and the areas it rules with their energy.

The houses with planets reveal the areas of life where the center of activity and attention is; the houses without planets can reveal details about the areas they rule through their ruler and its placement and connections with other planets.

Astrology technique which analyses relationships is called synastry. This technique compares the natal charts of two people and determines whether there is potential for them to be in a harmonious and lasting union.

The astrologer especially analyses the placements of the planets from one natal chart into the houses of another natal chart. This analysis reveals how the relationship is likely to influence the partners and in which areas of life.

The 12 houses rule different areas of our life, such as our character, personal appearance, interests, talents, education, hobbies, social life, friends, finances, health, physical condition, relationships, partners, parents, children, siblings, our ancestors, family members, neighbors, surroundings, home, work, profession, communication skills, travels, etc.
