I hope you’ve all had a wonderful and eventful weekend. I thought today would be a wonderful day to talk about birth charts! It has come to my attention that a lot of people don’t know what a birth chart is. If you don’t, this is going to be the “Birth Chart for Dummies Guide” and I’m so excited to share this with you, because it’s so much fun.
I would also like to say, that astrology and birth charts can be used to better understand a person and not change them. There’s more to horoscopes than the vague advice we get in our Astrology Apps and horoscope sections in favorite Magazines and Newspapers.
Everyone is different and is affected by the position of the planets and stars differently, after all, we’re made from the same matter that makes up the constellations above us and beyond. There’s gotta be a reason why they say, “People do crazy things when the moon is full”
(** I KNOW THE MOON IS NOT A STAR OR A PLANET**)
but, it does control our tides, and we are made up of 70% water after all 😉
Okay, so here’s the thing, we all know our SUN sign, which falls under the month and day you were born, if you’re not sure, here’s a guide & the word that describes them most often.

Q: What is a birth chart and why should I care?
A: A birth chart is a chart of the planets and their positions at the time of your birth. Your birth chart is unique to you and helps us understand certain things about ourselves:

N. Node: What you are destined to do.

Once you’ve looked up your own personal birth chart, you can connect the dots and better understand the way you express yourself and why you’re interested in certain topics. Id also like to include some information that can be helpful when you’re doing your research and reading birth charts.
- Fire: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
You may have heard that fire signs are the most passionate. Fire can do lovely things, but when you’re not careful with it, it can burn you.
- Air: Libra, Aquarius, Gemini.
Air, in my opinion, is the most important element. Air cannot be seen or touched, but it is needed to keep all other elements balanced.
- Earth: Capricorn, Taurus, Virgo
Sometimes called the most serious and down to earth people. Earth is solid and grounded.
- Water: Cancer, Pisces, Scorpio
Considered the most sensitive and nurturing of all, Water is beautiful and fun when it is controlled, but just like fire, when not kept under control, it can drown you.
