What is a natal birth chart?

It's a road map to who you are as a person on the day you were born, and why it is you meant to be here.

We all don’t remember the time we were born. 

Most of us tend to start out in a hospital, crying like crazy, and probably wanting a hug and food from your mom.

While you may not remember being born you do know the day and time since it’s on your birth certificate.

Do you know you can actually use your day and time to understand the deeper meaning and energies going on in the universe as you were born?

When you have your chart you want to look at your Sun sign. This gives you a rough estimate of the characteristics you may have.

You look for next is the Ascendant. this is the sign that's on the horizon as you were born, this shows more how others perceive yourself and it's your spontaneous reactions to things. The ascendant sign makes the details more specific because they cancel out a lot of the people in the world with your same sun sign.
