Could a birth chart help you?
Our resident astrologer David Wells explains how to get one drawn up and what it can reveal
‘Your birth chart is a map and a resource’
If you’re reading this, the chances are you like to check your horoscopes to see what’s in store. taking things further by having your birth chart drawn up could be hugely beneficial.
‘your birth chart is unique to you,’ explains David. ‘It shows how the planets were aligned at the exact time and date you were born and can give you very accurate information on your personality and phases of change and development in your life.
‘you can get a good general overview of your birth chart online. But for something more in-depth seek out a professional astrologer. I’d recommend visiting your local esoteric book shop for advice or contacting the British astrological & Psychic society (britishastrologicalandpsychicsociety.co.uk).
‘I always tell people that your birth chart is a map and a resource, but please don’t use it to excuse bad behaviour. For example, as a taurus you might love shopping but that doesn’t mean you should become a shopaholic.
‘Interestingly, moving locations can affect your birth chart too. you can delve into this by having an astro-cartographer place your birth chart over a map of the world to see if you could find a better life somewhere else. It’s fascinating stuff!’ search online to find an astro-cartographer near you.
