Astrology has fascinated people for more than 4,000 years with its insights into world events and human nature. This powerful tool, as many have discovered, can reveal the depths of your personality, including skills, talents, motivations and challenges in any area of life from relationships to money to career, friendship, children, family and creativity.

Astrology is far more than your Sun sign. Your natal (birth) chart, when calculated for your exact date, time and place of birth, shows all the other planets, your rising sign (also called the Ascendant) and the houses (areas of life). Unlike your Sun sign, which is shared by millions, your birth chart is as unique as you are. It's your personalized map of the heavens.

When interpreted by an accredited astrologer, your birth chart reveals your potential in this lifetime and also where you are in that journey. You can learn about current and future phases, when to expect career developments, romance, commitment, a rise in income and more. As a forecasting tool, astrology can help you prepare for periods of success as well as challenging times. It's all in the timing, which is astrology's strength as a forecasting tool.
