very astrologer will have their own interpretation methods and astrological toolkit, but the three basic pieces are the planets, signs, and houses. House rulers, the Moon’s Nodes, Chiron, asteroids, midpoints, fixed stars, parallels, essential dignity, decans, dwads, critical degrees, and other sensitive points can also be helpful in interpretation.

astrology planets

The planets are the actors, or players, in your chart. They are the characters in your personal story. They are the heroes and villains in your astrological journey.

astrology signs

The zodiac signs provide personality, color, wardrobe, and expression to each of the planets in your chart. How did the hero feel? What was she wearing?

astrology houses

The astrological houses shows where the action takes place. Where do your characters fight their battles? Are their battles in the corporate world or do they wrestle inner demons?

astrology rulers

Astrological rulers connect the houses in your chart in a meaningful way, even the houses that have no planets.

Moon’s Nodes

What is your backwards path and where do you find growth moving forward in life? What will give you a surprising sense of fulfillment, but take conscious effort?


Are you drawn to astrology, tarot, the healing arts, flower essences, or herbs? You may find Chiron, and other physical and theoretical bodies prominent in your birth chart.
