Birth Chart Reading Plus Forecast

This reading is best for the client who would like both their birth chart analyzed and a forecast of the astrological influences for the upcoming year.  This reading is divided into two 60 minute sessions.

When you are first being introduced to astrology, the most important chart to have read by an astrologer is your individual birth chart or natal chart.  This is a map or diagram of the sky at the moment of your birth.  Within the birth chart lies different structures that will help the astrologer delineate your personality. This is the chart that is then used for synastry chart comparisons and forecasting.  It is the energetic signature that is always with you, even as you age and grow.

We will then use 3 techniques to look at the birth chart  relative to this year.  Transits, the progressions to the natal chart and the solar return chart.  Themes for the year will become apparent as we see triggers to the clients birth chart.

How is a birth chart read?

The first step to having your chart read is gathering your birth information.  I will need your birth date, time & city.  It’s best to get the time from the birth certificate or a written source.  Word of mouth is not as reliable and the birth time is a very important part of a chart reading.  We can’t assign your rising sign or the house cusps or the exact moon degree with certainty, if we don’t have exact time.

After you’ve booked your appointment and sent your information to me, we will meet for our reading.  If you’re in the Utah area, an in-person reading is preferred.  If out of state or in another country, Skype, Facetime and Phone consultations are available.

We will start with a brief chat where I will ask you about what you’re looking to get from the reading, or if you have any pressing concerns in your life.  I will then give you a brief tutorial of what a birth chart is and how that applies to yours.  You don’t need to understand the chart, but it’s nice to have some context during the reading.

The next step is the analysis of the chart.  We start with the Primary Triad of the Sun, the Moon and the Rising Sign.  We will look at the signs and houses they are placed in as well as the rulers of those houses and how they are aspected.  We will then look at the relationships they make to one another and delineate how this affects your personality.

After the Primary Triad, we move through your houses, also noting rulerships and aspects.

We will touch on the nodes of the moon to give information about your soul path.

In conclusion, we will wrap up the reading with a discussion about the patterns we’ve seen during the reading.  Noting blockages, flows, areas of your life that have been challenging, areas that have been gifted, etc.  You’re welcome to ask questions of course, and I always want to be sure my clients feel like they got information of value.  I like to use a practical approach to my readings, so I want to be sure you feel like you have some guidance and tools to use after we’ve met.

How is a forecast read?

An Annual Forecast is done after the astrologer has fully analyzed the natal chart.  With an understanding of the native’s make-up and trigger points, the birth chart can then be compared to charts that show the up-coming annual celestial themes.

First a Solar Return Chart will be created.  This is a chart that is drawn for the day of the up-coming year that the native’s Sun “returns” to the same degree in the same zodiac sign as the birth chart.  The Sun is the only planetary placement that absolutely will be in the same sign and degree, though not necessarily the same house.  The Solar Return is then read in a manner similar to the birth chart.  Comparisons will be made to the birth chart to highlight themes for the year.  We can do a general read for the entire house, or focus on an area of concern.

Next, we will create a Secondary Progression Chart.  This is a chart that applies a technique of a day of life since birth per year.  So for example, when you turned 5 years old, your Secondary Progression Chart would’ve been a chart of the day, 5 days after your birth.  This chart moves slowly and so we focus on changes to the lunar cycle, zodiac sign changes of the luminaries, and personal planets.  This is a chart that will support themes seen in the other charts.

Last, we will do a brief look at transits from the slow moving outer planets for the year and compare any repeating themes we’re seeing there as well.

I feel so empowered and supported by the Universe in my career and my marriage! If you need some support and guidance I highly recommend you get in touch with Nichole. Thank you!!Private Client
