INTERPRETING YOUR OWN ESOTERIC ASTROLOGICAL NATAL CHART


FOR THE PURPOSE OF PERSONAL SOUL GROWTH

Compiled & OfferedBy


Nancy Detweiler, M.Ed., M.Div.

INTRODUCTION

During my private practice as a counselor and teacher of metaphysical holistic growth, I found esoteric
meaning soul-centeredastrology to be the single most beneficial tool for self-understanding, spiritual
growth, and life-planning. I interpreted what I called the SOUL MAP (based on the natal chart)the
map of the individual souls plans for this particular incarnation.

Before incarnating, each soul creates (in cooperation with his/her spiritual teachers and guides) an
overall plan for that lifetime based on the cumulative experiences and needs the soul has incurred in
past incarnations. While still on the inner planes, souls contract to assist each other in a variety of
roles. The major goals for all are spiritual growth, karmic balancing, and service to others. Success
relates to how well we achieve these soul goalsnot how much money we make or how famous we
become on the physical plane.

As we approach 2012 and the opportunity to ascend in consciousness to the 4th and 5th dimensions,
knowledge of self is a requirement to move forward on your spiritual journey. In order to ascend, we
must complete our soul lessons and balance at least 51% of our karma.

For this reason, I created a series of classes for learning to interpret your own esoteric astrological soul
map. I am sharing the student workbook for this class series with you free of charge. Please excuse
my amateurish drawings, but they are the ones I used in this class years ago!

YOUR NATAL CHART: You will need a picture of your natal chart it is best to get the natal chart only
(adding transits can be confusing for the beginner, plus you may accidentally read the wrong section of
the chart). If you do not already have your pictorial natal chart, you may order one from the Aquarian
Bookstore listed below.

TO GET YOUR TROPICAL PLACIDUS NATAL CHART: You will need the following information:

1. Your exact birth time taken from your birth certificate. Your birth certificate comes from
the hospital in which you were born it is NOT the little card that comes from the Bureau of Vital
Statistics.

I do not trust Mothers memory because she is distracted at the time of birth. It is best to find your
birth certificate with the time of birth listed on it. Astrology is a very exacting mathematical science and
the wrong birth time could change many of the configurations, rendering your chart incorrect.

2. The Day Month Year of your birth.

3. The City/Town (County if a rural birth) and state in which you were born.

I am inserting an example of the TROPICAL PLACIDUS NATAL CHART below.

You may order a chart from the Aquarian Bookstore where this one was done. They use the most
accurate software I have found.

WHY STUDY ASTROLOGY?

1. To gain insights into your souls purpose and lessons for this lifetime. Dane Rudhyar calls the
natal chart your Celestial Name. The Universe knows your name; your Soul Map allows you to know
the YOU known by the Universe. Your Soul Map reveals the divine plan for your life.

2. To enhance your understanding of family and friends by studying their charts. As you study the
various individuals charts, you recognize the uniqueness of every person. We were not created to be
carbon copies of each other.

3. To better understand those present in your extended environment by knowing the


characteristics of their Sun Sign. Every person is unique.

4. To become a better spouse/parent by understanding the energy dynamics within which you are
expressing.

5. To appreciate the uniqueness of each child and to raise them while honoring their unique
talents and needs in accordance with the childs soul purpose.

6. To know thyself. Knowledge of self is a prerequisite to ascension. Esoteric astrology is


based on knowledge of reincarnation. Thus the energies that may manifest in a negative way indicate
the traits your soul wants to transform into a positive expression this lifetime. Knowledge of and using
your positive energies helps to overcome the negative and prepare for ascension.

TROPICAL PLACIDUS NATAL CHART

Each zodiac sign is ruled by one or two of the planets as listed in the top section. Each sign consists of
30 degrees divided into 3 decanates of 10 degrees each. Each planet will rest on one of these 30
degrees within a sign. For example: The Sun in the above SAMPLE chart is located on the 20th degree
of Geminitherefore it is in the 2nd decanate. This adds the influence of Venus and Libra to the
expression of Sun in Gemini.

I encourage you to memorize the symbols representing the zodiac signs and planets. This will

prevent having to repeatedly look them up. As you can see on the pictorial natal chart above, the
symbols may differ in the way they are formed. You will soon learn to recognize the various forms.
Knowing the order in which the planets are listed is also helpful.

They are listed in order of their distance from the Sun, thus: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter,
Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto. Earth is signified by a circle with a cross inside it. Earth is not
usually included in the list of planets. Although scientists have declared Pluto to no longer be a planet,
we will still treat it as such for the purposes of astrology.

Decanate Chart
I give you the decanate chart (bottom of the above symbol chart) in case you want to study interpretation
in more depth.

Your chart consists of 12 sections called houses inside a 360 degree circle. Each house signifies
particular activities/lessons in your life. Note the sample chart above. The boundary for each house is
called a cusp and is also located on one of the 360 degrees. Note that the location of a house cusp
and planet is listed as on a particular degree and minute of a zodiac sign. For example: Sun is on the
20 th degree, 21st minute of Gemini, located in the 1st house. The beginning boundary or 1st house
cusp is located on the 9 th degree, 26 minute of Gemini. This 1 st house cusp is called the
ASCENDANT. Read your chart counterclockwise as numbered.

LETS GET STARTED!

Here you will find extensive information on each of the 12 Zodiac Signs. Each Sun Sign
page includes information for the Sun, Moon, & Ascendant in that particular Sign; therefore, you
will most likely need to go to three separate links for your Sun, Moon, & Ascendant. Youll see
what I mean.

First, read the information on your Sun Sign down to the information on the Ascendant &
Moon. Here you will most likely need to find this section under the Sign in which your
Ascendant is located and the section under the Sign in which your Moon is located. Once you
have read the information on your Moon and Ascendant Signs, you will need to return to your
Sun Sign to read the HEALTH & WELL BEING and CONFLICT RESOLUTION sections.

You will very soon find that in studying astrology, you must read carefully or else you will
miss instructions and find yourself reading information that does not apply to you.
