When I’ve started studying Astrology, I perfectly remember the confusion and the frustration that I felt the very first time I saw a Natal Chart.
Doctor Angiolucci, who was introducing me to Astrology, showed me the drawing of a Birth Chart and then he started: – “Do you see? Jupiter is in Leo and in the 8th House so it means that…”– and – “Do you see? The Sun is above the horizon so it means this…”– and – “Do you see? Mercury and Mars are in Square so it means that…” –
My face was like: “Ah, of course! Oh yes! Naturally!”, but inside my mind was like: – “Horizon?! Where do you see the horizon?? Strange symbols?? Numbers?? Lines?? Letters?? Colors?? Tables?? What a hell is this circle??!”– .
It seemed to me like watching an ancient egyptian papyrus.
So I stopped Angiolucci: – “Excuse me, I cannot understand what this drawing is, what’s that graphic? Why is it a circle? How it works? Why do I need that stuff to study Astrology?”–
Angiolucci answered: – “It is a scheme of the sky at the very moment of your birth, it’s obvious!” –
Me: – “Sorry Doc, IT ISN’T!”–
Now, don’t misunderstand me, Doctor Angiolucci was very good on Astrology, the point is that many experts very often talk to you like you are already a professional astrologer. They forgot how hard was at the beginning, and everything is completely new for a total beginner.
There are many people who are very interested to Astrology, but they never saw a Natal Chart, they don’t know how to obtain one, and above all, they don’t know how it works and why it is useful, and even when they obtain it, they feel completely frustrated and lost.
It’s easy for them feel despondent and then they abandon.
So, now we will see how to obtain a good graphic of your Natal Chart, and we will analyze every single piece of it, to understand how it works, its basic psychological meanings, why it is helpful to make the right psychological interpretations and why it’s a powerful tool for your personal growth.
