Understanding Astrology. Astrology is an art form, a system of personal prediction used extensively and widely all over the world since ancient times in most cultures in the world. A practitioner of astrology is called an astrologer. Astrologers cast the horoscope or natal chart of an individual with precise calculations, producing diagram of the position of planets & signs of the zodiac at a particular time and place. Your natal chart is like a mirror in which an astrologer can see one’s past, present and future. Your personal chart is like a snapshot of a particular place in time and space.
In that unique instant in time, is the time of birth of the individual and the space is his birthplace, then that horoscope is called a natal horoscope or natal chart or birth chart. There are 12 houses in a horoscope from which an astrologer can predict various events, opportunities, and challenges that will or have occurred in the life of the individual.
Once calculated, you chart/horoscope is as unique as your fingerprint, and it enables the astrologer to calculate what the future has in store for the person. Your chart can enable you to understand yourself/your partner and family better, help you get out of a rut and find direction, solve problems and make the most of any fantastic opportunities that could be coming your way!
