Astral Chart: The Wheel of Good Fortune

You have undoubtedly already seen this wheel which is filled with cabalistic symbols that look like mathematics signs. They are called "astral themes". Decoding the signs of a theme is a complex exercise. Here are some of the keys:

The wheel is a cartography of the sky at the moment of your birth, drawn in function of the date, hour and place. The symbols represent the position of the planets and the signs while the twelve divisions of the circle represent the houses. These symbols define the Ascendant (the determining factor in how you behave in society and the Descendant (the determining factor in your close relationships). The planets present in the different houses of your birth chart incarnate your energies and participate in forming your personality.

Each sun sign is defined by an energy, a quality and an element.

The Energies: a sign is either yang (extrovert) or yin (introvert). They are also either masculine or feminine in nature.

The Qualities: cardinal, fixed or mutable, the quality evokes the position of the sign in a season and the resulting activity. A sign that in the beginning of a season is cardinal. Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn thus favor the development of a personality that likes to take action. An astral chart that has a lot of cardinal influences predisposes the person to being dynamic. A sign that is anchored into a season is fixed. Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius are thus tenacious and hostile to change. A person who has a lot of fixed signs in their astral chart will be like this. A sign at the end of a season is mutable. Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces thus favor transition and the ability to adapt.

Elements: Finally, each sign is associated with an element which reveals the temperament of someone. Fire (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) predisposes a person to being passionate, courageous and idealistic. Earth (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn) favors common sense and a talent for organization. Air (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius) reveals intellectual qualities and sociability. Water (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) amplifies emotional sensitivity and intuition.

In addition to the simple sun sign which is defined by the position of the Sun, the planets and signs in your astral chart at the moment of your birth also contribute to revealing your personality traits. So, a person who has a lot of water signs in their chart will undoubtedly be very intuitive even if they are a Capricorn. It goes without saying that astral charts are so complex that each one is different: we are all completely unique!
