The birth chart is the blueprint to your soul, the instruction manual that every human comes with.
But learning to read it can seem overwhelming. What does that circle and all those symbols mean? In this 30-minute step-by-step video, Ophi from The AstroTwins will show you how to understand the 3-part puzzle of your chart—planets, zodiac signs and houses—and set your foundation for interpreting birth charts!
In order to correctly cast your rising sign (ascendant), you need to know your time and place of birth. Here are resources for getting your birth certificate in case yours doesn’t list it. Some people will never know their exact birth time and have to make their best guess.
You can still glean plenty of information about yourself without knowing your rising sign, but you won’t be able to know the houses that the planets fall into. Faster-moving bodies like the moon sign may also be inaccurate.
