Astrology is a scientific discipline that connects celestial objects’ movement and their impact on people and other earthly events. The astrology practitioners are called astrologists. The above-mentioned earthly events may include relationship status, career building, health issues, and general well-being. These predictions include horoscopes scheduled for daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly plans. 

People usually want to know how natural and artificial planets or satellites affected other planetary objects when they were born. These tables with essential coordination are made by professional astrologists, who observe the stars and their constellations. 

The planet’s movement can, to a large extent, explain or predict current events, financial markets, and social situations. They can offer a quick and deep personality look based on your birth chart. Many supporters utilize the power of these charts to investigate outcomes of particular events such as marriage or election.

How Celestial Objects Affect a Person

The solar system’s celestial bodies have different significance. For example, each planet or luminary like the sun and the moon offers a specific approach in a person’s life. The sun’s position when you were born and the moon’s position gives a special insight into the arrangement of the self. 

But let’s talk deeper. If we discuss what sign a luminary or planet is moving through, we could target a particular month. For example, you might hear how from May 22-23 to June 22-23 (the reign of a sign from beginning to end), the sun is in Leo. Leo is known as a fire sign associated with the animal lion, who is endowed with a sense of power and аwe, offering up more confidence, self-esteem and boosting an authoritative figure. 

The Meaning of Each Planet

Here we will present to you the basic meaning that each planet or luminary symbolizes:


The self-image in general: self-esteem, confidence, sense of self, and identity.


The Moon leads the emotional compass of the zodiac, carving safety, security, and intuition. 


Mercury, known as the messenger planet, helps a person oversee information-gathering, research, and improving communication.


Ancient Rome linked this planet with beauty, and it is logical to say that it influences passion and pleasure, love and relationship, and money and art.


Mars was long ago thought to be the God of war; that is why this red planet is associated with libido, energy, and courage.


Jupiter symbolizes luck because it has excellent beneficial features, promoting hope, growth, and creativity.


This celestial object is tightly associated with the existence of rules, making boundaries, strict discipline, and meticulousness. 


This planet has something to do with explosiveness and change, sudden and unplanned events, and rebellion.


Pluto was famous as the God of the underworld, and its association is appropriate. It celebrates rebirth, transformation, but also death, and reincarnation.

North and South Nodes

These nodes are indeed mathematical points presented on a chart that are always opposite one another. The north node symbolizes and acts like an astrological north star. The karmic path is your destiny, meant to move and walk ahead in your lifespan. 

On the contrary, the south node is what you’re already left behind and already have experienced, most likely due to a previous life or reincarnation.

Rising sign (ascendant)

When you were born, the sign that ascended on the easter horizon is considered your rising. It is representative of the image you project into the world. It also offers insight into your talents and skills and adopts strategies that improve or worsen your life.

Some astrologers also use the comet Chiron, the dwarf planet Ceres, and asteroids like Juno, Vesta, and Palas. 

The Meaning of the Birth (Natal) Chart

Many of us use the zodiac sign when we introduce or want to know our interlocutor better. But what many of us don’t know is that there is a heavily layered individual image that illustrates your astrological story. The professional astrologers look at the chart, similar to a snapshot from the sky and star constellations, of the minute you were born, based on criteria such as place of birth, date, and time.

With this said, people born on the same hour, day, and year but live on different Earth coordinates will have various natal charts. All moving bodies from celestial origin move differently through the sign and most logically through particular locations on the Earth. 

For example, the moon moves every two and a half days. Depending on the phase that it is in (if in a retrograde phase), Mercury typically spends between 15 to 60 days per sign. On top of that, it’s possible that you were born on a day where the sun and other planets moved from one sign to another.

That is why natal designers need the precise time and location of your birth. Given that info, you will have the snapshot of the sky objects on the day you were born, not just the snap but their positions interpreted. Although these days, as technology improves, you can get your birth chart via software, also it can be done by hand. These charts will not only illustrate what signs the luminaries and planets were in when you were born but other info like houses, degrees, and aspects. 

Other Vital Things About Natal Charts


Respectively to the 12 zodiac signs, 12 different houses represent a separate living area. Knowing your exact birth time, you’re able to determine the house in which stars; planets are located in your chart.


These are the exact coordinates of each planet within each sign, which often comes into the light when an astrologer looks at daily, weekly, monthly, yearly transits.


This section is how the planets interact with one another. For example, your moon might be a few degrees away from your rising sign, or your Venus opposes your Jupiter. These relationships speak about your overall personality, goals, strengths, and challenges. 

The 12 Zodiac signs

The belt under eight degrees on either side of the eclipse is also known as the zodiac. Zodiac is a circle defining the apparent Sun path, among the constellations over a year. This circle is divided into 12 equal portions that we know under “signs”: Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces. 

What intrigues astrologists is the traveling of luminaries and planets across this belt and the time they have spent in each sign. You had heard someone saying, “My moon is in Gemini” or “Mars was in Aquarius when I was born.”

Moreover, following their particular traits, the 12 zodiac signs are structured into four elements: fire, earth, air, and water.

Fire Signs

Fire signs are characterized as dynamic and determined, demonstrative, and pretty ambitious. They get animated quickly but also are prone to fast burnout. They successfully channelize their passion into something practical.

But most of all, because of their team-building characters, they are known as the most loyal friends of the Zodiac.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

This fixed fire sign transmits positivity and is full of life. They tend to engage, entertain, and inspire others.

Earth Signs

Earth signs are described as perfectionists, famously known for their humble and grounded life approach; they are hard-workers, stable, and highly organized.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

 This cardinal Earth sign is practical and well-organized but also constantly inspired to achieve the aimed goals. These people always push themselves to the border limits, leaving others envious when comparing their energies. They are pretty ambitious and restless, but sometimes that’s why their personal lives (partners and children) suffer. They lose their sense of time and space.

Air Signs

Air signs are mainly focused on intellectual priority, and they are also pretty friendly. Their characters differ from others, considering themselves extroverts. But what’s off with these signs is they frequently change their minds and decisions, making them unstable compared to others. They are driven by the broad mental energy invested into making final solutions.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Geminis are thought to be the most friendly and social zodiac sign. They are enthusiastic, clever, and curious; they animate people and bring excitement wherever they go.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

The cardinal water sign is famous for its sensitive, nurturing, self-protective, and compassionate nature. They are fun and loving, with a twisted sense of humor, that for some, can be repulsive. But above everything, they prioritize– to make people that surround them secure and comfortable. Be sure that you can rely on the Cancers, whether you need a freshly baked cookie or a shoulder to cry on.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Scorpios are wrapped into a mystery, which makes them the most attractive sign in the zodiac. They are incredibly private but have strong opinions and voices about subjects they consider near and dear to their hearts. They have intense sexual energy, making them fiercely magnetic.

They often channel their emotions into a particular art form, and that’s how they achieve to feel more enlightened. With Pisces by your side, you can exercise how to embrace life since they are the most magical people you’ll ever meet.

Is Astrology Real?

Many people learn how to read the stars and connect them with earthly events. Although astrology is a fundamental discipline that has been thought to be the real deal for forecasting from ancient times, some things are paradoxical. For example, the psychological effect is called Barnum. It is believed that people have a tendency to blend with the herd, and horoscopes are one of them. 

Psychologists think that astrology is based on general presumptions about interpretations of cosmic objects. But apart from this claim, no other science has ever supported disclaims or claims about psychology. It is only a discipline that somehow makes people happy.

Zodiac Compatibility

Astrologers find out what signs will work or wouldn’t work when connected in a love relationship based on their characteristics. Did you know that some entrepreneurial companies in Western civilization group their workers based on zodiac signs? That’s how they avoid misleading and internal conflicts in the company. But to do that, you must know what signs will click and what links will be disasters. 

Compatible Signs

Aries with Sagittarius

Because Aries is a dominant personality eager to take the lead role, Sagittarius is adventurous and outgoing, meaning the two of them will sustain each other’s energy.

Taurus with Capricorn and Virgo

At first glimpse, Taurus might seem stubborn, but he is just pretty self-conscious about its whole picture. Capricorn and Virgo are a good match for Taurus because they share the same fundamental nature. Sometimes, even a Cancer can be a good companion because of its passionate nature, similar to that shared by a Taurus.

Gemini with Libra

Their love and fun energy can sometimes turn into a darker and depressing level, which is why Geminis are titled as two-faced. That’s where Libra, with the viewpoint of two sides in one argument, comes into play. The Libra can see more in a Gemini than what the eye can see. Also, Aquarius and Sagittarius can compete with the intellectual level of a Gemini.

Cancer with Scorpio and Pisces

Cancer is a zodiac sign that enjoys giving, and Scorpio and Pisces are also pretty intuitive signs. They will indeed love and respect Cancer’s dedication.

Leo with Aquarius, Gemini, and Sagittarius

In general, Leos search for a lover, but that can be their best friend at the same time. That is why they are compatible with Gemini, Aquarius, and Sagittarius since they all share the same excitement and aspirations.

Virgo with Capricorn

Virgos tend to be perfectionists, searching for a specific life approach, and therefore, it is essential for them if their partner shares the same viewpoint. Similar to Virgo, Capricorn adores setting goals and hard work.

Libra with Libra

Generally, Libras are described through their sense of justice and measurement. Given this fact, it is only logical that the best partner for Libra will be another Libra. They also can find a mutual language with Aquarius and Aries.

Scorpio with Pisces and Cancer

The Scorpio’s depth can’t be understood by everyone. But Cancer and Pisces can experience the world through emotions, and therefore, measure with the intensity of a Scorpio.

Sagittarius with Gemini

People born in the Sagittarius sign are known as curious, and they want to acknowledge everything in this world. Knowing that they learn the world through experiences, it’s not a surprise that the most compatible sign would be Gemini, carrying their energetic lifestyle.

Capricorn with Virgo

The love for achievement and accomplishment that every Capricorn follows can be easily matched with the sympathy and desire that Virgos feel for everyone surrounding them.

Aquarius with Gemini

The seekers for constant improvement and the independent mind in the whole zodiac can heat it off with a Gemini since they are nimble-minded and highly energetic.

Pisces with Scorpio and Cancer

Pisces are known for their unusual appetite for the unknown and mystic. This particular way of thinking can be shared either with Scorpio or Cancer. They are also “too out there,” both with emotions and thinking.

Non-compatible Signs

Aries with Virgo, Scorpio, and Cancer

Their divided characteristics will just clash constantly, resulting in a toxic relationship.

Taurus with Leo, Aquarius, and Sagittarius

Taurus may love sensuality but hates a relationship show off.

Gemini with Capricorn and Taurus

These signs will be a total disaster if put in a mutual connection. Taurus and Capricorn just don’t love the unpredictable nature of Gemini. If they ever start a relationship, they will probably often end up fighting until they finally fight it off.

Cancer with Sagittarius, Gemini, and Leo

These pretty independent signs won’t satisfy the nature of “I need to be needed” Cancer. 

Leo with Capricorn, Taurus, and Virgo

If a Leo ends up with one of these signs, they will indeed feel like under a regiment and will start suffocating in the relationship.

Virgo with Sagittarius, Gemini, and Aquarius

Will most likely not stand the Virgo’s patience by pushing and testing boundaries.

Libra with Virgo and Capricorn

What thrives the most when discussing zodiac signs is that Libra won’t feel the initial love spark when paired with either Virgo or Capricorn. Libra with Pisces can also be a poor choice.

Scorpio with Aquarius

Given the Scorpio’s liberty and free-spirited energy, Aquarius can be too cerebral a choice. Aries and Leo are also not the best matches for Scorpio.

Sagittarius with Capricorn and Taurus

The uncontrolled nature of the Sagittarius conflicts with the achieve-settler temperaments of Capricorn and Taurus. The relationship between Sagittarius and Pisces will lack communication.

Capricorn with Leo, Gemini, and Sagittarius

These three will see the Capricorn partner as overly stodgy and severe, and sometimes even boring for their energy level.

Aquarius with Scorpio and Cancer

Aquarius sign is known for the logical and open approach to events and emotional states. On the other hand, Scorpio can be a little too convoluted for this stable sign that walks with the two feet steadily on Earth. The same applies to Cancer.

Pisces with Gemini, Leo, and Sagittarius

The ongoing character of these three signs won’t match the contemplative Pisces, which tend to overreact with emotions and thoughts. They seem more rational than any other sign on some occasions.

The Difference Between Astrology and Astronomy 

Astronomy is a science that studies objects and other matters outside of the earth’s atmosphere, such as stars, asteroids, planets, and galaxies, their properties, and relationships. Astronomers strictly base their studies on constant observation and thorough research.

On the other hand, astrology is not considered a science, but it is believed that the stars and planets’ positioning affect earthly events. But if you get their names wrong, if you are looking for the fun side that stars constellations and the planets’ movement can predict your zodiac sign, you are looking for an astrologist. 

On the other hand, if you’re interested in the solar system and the planets, other celestial objects, and the universe in general, or what matter makes up space, space travel, or the possible existence of aliens, astronomy is the field you should consider.

Should We Trust Astrology?

A person should trust astrology only if it has a positive effect on them. But instead, if it paralyzes you, not engaging you, then you are doing something wrong.

A prediction doesn’t presume fate, although that’s how people interpret it most of the time. For instance, if humans have ‘free will,’ then the possibility of predictive astrology getting falsified becomes higher. 

The broad concept of ‘free will’ and the ‘doctrine of predestination does not match. Free will and fate are interwoven. A prediction is something near a weather forecast, meaning it assumes a relative degree of probability.

What Does the Bible Say About Astrology?

When astrology was first mentioned in the Bible, God spoke to the people of the ancient city of Babylon. Middle East archaeologists confirmed that astrology originated from the ancient nation of Babylon, now known as the country of Iraq. For instance, cuneiform tablets were dug in archaeological locations, and further investigation found they dated from the 5th century BC and earlier. 

Now and then, astrology had the same meaning for people; it was considered a divination art that teaches that the positioning in the sky of the Sun, Moon, and planets influences destiny and human affairs. Like in ancient Babylon, nowadays, following modern civilization, an incredible number of people utilize the services of astrologists and counselors.

Don’t forget that some experts enumerate dream analysis as a portion of the astrology field. Therefore, we will present an excerpt from the Book of Daniel, talking about the narrated event in the life of Nebuchadnezzar, the King of Babylon. The King dreamt of something quite disturbing, and he wanted to understand its profound meaning. Daniel 2:2 NIV informs us, “So the king summoned the magicians, enchanters, sorcerers, and astrologers to tell him what he had dreamed.”

What is Your Horoscope?

The horoscope is, in fact, the snapshot of the sky at the time of your birth. This snapshot is broad, and it circles the position of all the planets in numerous zodiac signs at the moment of your delivery. Have you’ve been tempted by the accuracy of a horoscope? For some, the stars and their affection for everyday events may be nonsense, but they affect us.

Even the biggest skeptic has once checked daily or weekly horoscopes. Those who regularly read their horoscopes are amazed by the preciseness of these predictions. Some call it pseudo-science, while others think it is just good guessing, based on psychology tricks, like the Barnum effect mentioned before.

Whatever the case is, astrology has been present for thousands of years, unlike other failed science branches, like alchemy, for example. What made it survive for so long was its accuracy.

Why is Astrology So Accurate?

Astrology is based on precise scientific calculations following constellations and planetary movements. Although astrology has never earned the title of actual science, it is based on profoundly studying the 12 planets and noticing patterns that have been occurring over centuries. 

The stars and planets, like celestial bodies, don’t solely influence things, but they are time markers and give us a good understanding of what cycle was when the person was born.

Оriginates from Ancient Times

Each civilization that has ever existed in the world has developed its systems of predicting events based on astronomical observations related to the Stars, the Sun, and the Moon. For instance, many early testimonials from ancient people openly speak about them, thinking these movements of celestial objects were indeed the Gods talking to them in sign language. Maybe this fact derives from the previous, that people were newborns on Earth who were just trying to understand new things that surrounded them. In that period, ancient civilizations started to expand and improve their cognitive abilities, which shortly came to the point of 10% brain utilization. 

They have developed a complex system of measuring time just to calculate various astronomical events. These measurement systems work precisely even today, and scientists are also wondering how an ancient civilization developed them. 

Some of these discoveries have made their way into magazines, and many serve as an inspiration for conspiracy theories such as those that encouraged TV shows like Ancient Aliens

Based on Mathematical Calculations

Simplified, the reason why many people believe in astrology is that it gives them accurate readings, independently of how many times they will repeat the reading. The constant success of astrology is what makes it an instant hit even with millennials. But have they any clue that mathematical calculations and science are hidden behind these predictions? Probably not. 

How does Astrology Work?

As mentioned before, the science of predicting is implemented in so many life areas. For instance, we want to know when it will rain, when the tomatoes flourish, and where a person will get married. All this is coming from mere observations that led ancient civilizations to discover many astronomical periods.

Don’t be astonished by the fact that thousands of years back, people knew the exact timing of rotation for all planets, including the farthest, Saturn? They have accurately calculated the nodes of the Moon through mathematical formulations to the precise eclipse occurring. Remember that they didn’t have a telescope back then? And you will call it pseudoscience?

Ancient people have excellent observation skills. Maybe this is due to the fact that the world long ago was nothing but a sky and nature, and before the eco-catastrophes, perhaps the night sky was clear to be observed with the naked eye, but yet, they’ve accomplished so much. Each minor change was noted and written down. These detailed observations were the foundation of other complex calculations.

A single person did not develop astrology, but its principles were nurtured and passed from generation to generation. This is why, even today, astrology predictions are accurate and credible. 

Three Common Myths About Astrology 

Can astrology change the future?

The most dangerous assumption is for a single person to think that astrology can change the future. This is false. Yes, the purpose of astrology is to guide you through critical life events instead of just guessing. Astrology can be seen as a tool that empowers conscious decisions and avoids poor life choices. Astrology aims to help the single soul to merge with the collectiveness of the universe. 

A lot of people think that an astrologer can change their destiny. But this couldn’t be possible. Why so? If an astrologer has not created your destiny, how can he change it? For the most part, our choices depend on our free will. This means that only you and your subconscious and accumulated karma have power over your destiny, meaning if you are the creator, you can control it, but you cannot change the whole thing.

For instance, you can’t avoid getting food poisoning, but if you stay away from unsafe sources, maybe you will. If it started with you, it would end with you. And astrology can only guide you in making better life choices.

Is astrology magic, or involves paranormal and psychic activity?

Although there might be those who will describe astrology as something occult, the truth is, it is based only on the look of the universe, the day you were born. The primary astrology tool is a natal chart, designed thanks to the data about where and when you were born. The birth chart is, in fact, an imprint of what the planets and stars looked at at the precise moment.

Then, it makes sense that astrology is also called Jyotish, which translates to “science of light.” For what kind of light are we talking about? The stars are transmitted over planets that travel to Earth. Obviously, here are included luminary bodies like stars, but moon and planets too. Maybe this is not the exact science type you used to learn in school, but it does bear some similarities. 

What you must remember is that it’s not mystical in any way. It’s founded based on the knowledge about objects we know exists in the universe, and there is nothing mysterious about it.

Is astrology just made up for fun?

You can find many people who enjoy reading online horoscopes and think of it as just an entertaining hobby. In reality, astrology has a deeper meaning than just a distraction from boring and hard everyday life.

Roots from Vedic Astrology

For instance, Vedic astrology is tightly dependent on reincarnation and karma. It’s an ancient belief that after death, the soul leaves the body. In Vedic tradition, the subconscious mind goes along with the soul as part of the package, which is a carrier of all of the person’s feelings, memories, emotions, experiences, desires, and karma accumulated in their lifespan. 

The subconscious mind isn’t organized or skilled to differentiate right from wrong; it just exists. But for this information to be considered practical, the soul must first attach itself to a body. This selection process happens entirely automatically; your soul subconsciously chooses when you will be born, to which parents, where you will be born, and what your destiny will be. Of course, this is just a point of view that from the aspect of science is false.

In this sense, your natal chart is the seed of the eventuality, and your accumulated karma, and only you, with your consciousness and firm decisions, have the chance to form a healthy and happy life. 

Your birth chart is the seed of eventuality

Let’s talk in metaphors; for example, your chart showed that your seed is an apple seed. That means the probability of this seed becoming an apple tree, growing hundreds of thousands of apples, and living its life for whatever period. That’s how usually all natal or birth charts are seen and made. It shows the seed that can fully grow and achieve destiny and easily bear the fruits that karma left behind. 

Again, talking in similarities, your natal chart is the blueprint of your future, but it is written in a language that only astrologers can understand. Can you read notes or complex equations? Can you know what the Chinese alphabet says? No. Well, the same goes for these readings. Maybe there are plenty of tutorials on making your birth chart, but even if you succeed at that, you probably won’t be able to interpret it.
