What is a horoscope?

A horoscope is an astrological chart calculated on the date, time and place when something new starts: a life, the foundation of a State or even the launch of a business.

It shows the positions of the sun, moon and planets in one of twelve zodiac signs and displays them in a circle divided into twelve segments called houses. Nowadays, most horoscopes are birth charts for people.

How is a birth chart read?

Astrology applies a symbolic language to the chart to extract meaning. This is what’s meant by a chart reading or interpretation. 

Astrology has evolved over thousands of years, but in essence is based on number symbolism and sacred geometry (i.e. the study of the spiritual meaning of shapes). Because of this, it is both a science and an art.

What will my birth chart show?

Your birth chart shows your rising sign – called the ascendant – which is the zodiac sign rising on the eastern horizon at the time and place of your birth.

It also reveals the connections between the planets, known as aspects. These are geometrical relationships; squares, oppositions, trines and sextiles for example.

Everything in a chart contains symbolic meaning: the planets themselves, the rising sign and house cusps (or gateways) to the houses, the zodiac signs they occupy, and the geometrical relationships of the aspects between them.

Each part is analysed separately before being combined to give a complete reading.

Why choose a White Eagle School astrological reading?

Our readings focus on the spiritual purpose of a person’s current incarnation, the deep reason for their lifetime and the opportunities and challenges they encounter. 

A reading will not tell you what to do but can help empower you to make your own decisions based upon a wider perspective of who you are as a spiritual being as well as an ‘ordinary mortal’. It can also help you to connect more deeply with your own inner guidance and wisdom.

What can I learn from my chart?

Your chart reveals the qualities and characteristics that prevailed at the time and place of birth, which become a kind of blueprint that remains active throughout your life. 

It shows your full potential including strengths, weaknesses, and the opportunities and threats there may be to the fulfilment of your highest spiritual and material potential in your current lifetime.

A chart reading also calculates the planetary positions (including transits) at the time of your request to show which parts of your birth chart are currently being activated. This reveals the themes, issues and life lessons that are particularly relevant at the present time.
