For the past year Astrology has been one of my hobbies (*read* obsessions). I often find myself asking people "Sorry this is going to sound weird, but when's your birthday?" and then subsequently looking up their natal chart.
What surprised me most was that there is more to a person than just their "Sun Sign". That's right, you aren't just an "Aquarius" or "Libra", it gets a lot deeper than that! At your time of birth all the planets were at a certain location in this vast universe, and when you take into account these physical locations, Astrology goes from "yeah yeah this is so vague it could apply to anyone" to "Holy shit, this is so accurate it's frightening". I've been known to turn a skeptic into a believer simply by creating a custom chart for them.
With my interest in psychology, I wondered if maybe the physical location of the planets at your birth could somehow influence your behavioral and personality predispositions.
Maybe the reason you clash with some people, and vibe effortlessly with others is somehow written in the stars.
This is going to sound totally nerdy, but I approach astrology as a science. It combines my love for astronomy, astrophysics & psychology. But, as any good researcher would do - Instead of believing predefined definitions, I interact with folks and try to tease out what it means to be a Capricorn with an Aries moon (etc) for myself.
Although I have other (even nerdier) projects in the works around this concept, I thought I'd create a graphic for those who may be curious about astrology and compatibility (and also for my friends who always text me asking things like "Nia: He's an Aries Sun, Scorpio Moon... whats our compatibility? Is he the one?"). Feel free to download it, save it to your phone for your next encounter with a stranger or print it out for your reference! I hope you like it!
PS. If you're interested in a full natal chart reading, feel free to email me. All I need is your birthday, birthplace (and preferably birth time).
