Introduction to Astrology for Self-Development

Astrology may in many respects be viewed as the spiritual genome of the human consciousness similar to the physical genome which has been coded from the information within the helix of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) which lies at the root of the cellular structure and contains the information necessary for nature to evolve a separate and unique organism in accordance with the chemical sequences encoded on its strands. The complex diversity of human consciousness as expressed in the art of Astrology is the result of many millennia of careful and dedicated study by the practitioners of this art. Within this vast matrix of information, the individual can discover and reveal aspects of their consciousness that remain dormant or unrecognized and thus advance their evolutionary spiritual development.


As an example, the ancient Mayans developed their comprehensive astrology from the study of the personality and temperament of hundreds of thousands of persons born into their society and corresponding them to the time and season of the year as well as to the positions of the planets in the heavens on their day of birth. From this vast undertaking emerged an encyclopedic knowledge of the variations in human character and temperament which formed the basis of an astrological methodology used to order their society and bring it in harmony with the planetary energies that influenced the lives of each individual.


Spiritual astrologers incorporate the relationship between the individual and the Universe by focusing on the psychological expression of the Planets and Signs within the 12 areas of human experience represented by the Houses. From this perspective astrology as a tool for human development, a way to learn yourself, and find truth. This type of astrology makes it possible to realize your highest potential in this life, and fully actualize all your inner creative abilities. By understanding your “Starmap” i.e. Natal Chart as a map of the spiritual expression of self-awareness – one may proceed with greater confidence, ability and insight into the many circumstances that face you on life’s journey.


The spiritual view supported here is a progression from previous course sections. In astrology we recognize that everything with life is progressing towards acknowledging a greater truth within the Cosmic Consciousness (also known as spirit) in accordance with the Divine Plan which reflects a currently incomprehensible truth of everything. Spirit pervades all of the creation by extending itself invisibly into stars, planets, and living organisms. Personal development (or evolution) is the process by which Spirit creates opportunities for learning and growth that are graduated levels of recognition and understanding of truth or truth(s) on various levels. Just think of how your teenage self-thought you knew it all and desperately wanted to be an adult, for example. Once adulthood arrives, you begin to say – “If I only know then what I know now!” In this same way there are levels to knowing and your starmap can certainly prepare you for levels ahead.


To be clear, I’m not saying astrology is a solution to all the concerns of life but rather as an effective tool of living life in the most meaningful way possible. This course has an interactive design which allows you, ample space for notes and the ability to construct your personal starmap one step at a time. Through this course section, you’ll come to know your Inner Lights and follow them as your guides.


Consider this the basic instruction and construction of your Natal Chart. Every effort has been made to achieve both clarity and intelligibility in the presentation of this method of astrological interpretation. Numerous charts are used for illustrative purposes in every context where the goal of clear understanding will be served. Every concept is explained in sufficient detail to foster authentic understanding and no prior knowledge of Natal Chart erection, casting, or astrological interpretation is presumed. For mare advance study of astrology, transits, and astrological alignments in it various forms please refer to other courses offered on this site.


The Foundation of Astrology for Self-Development

Astrology is a symbolic art. The symbols of the Planets and Signs that are central to this art do not correlate to direct action on the part of the physical planetary bodies within the solar system actively impacting the life of individual’s. The Planets and Signs are used to express the archetypal characters, principals and energies inherent in life as perceived from our collective experience of life on Earth.


Given this perspective, the method we’ll explore in this course prescribes that the seven sacred planets of the ancients (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn) do not refer to the physical bodies of our solar system but are symbolic representations of the seven aspects of the life force and energy. The planetary energies (feelings) represent the conscious awareness and the Signs represent the manifestation of that energetic awareness in the natural universe (actions). The Houses organize the activities which comprise human life into loose categories. As a whole, the houses, comprise the entire sphere of human experience from birth to death.


For example, if Mars (planet/feelings) in your chart is residing in Scorpio (sign/ actions) in the 7th House (life activity) this could be expressed as Mars (the architype of aggressive energy) acting in a manner characteristic of Scorpio (intense, passionate and emotional) in the 7th House (the House of Relationships, which encompasses marriage and business relationships.) Thus based on your chart you have a tendency to lead the charge in contractual arrangements.


This method of Astrology, in accord with the ancients, considers only the seven sacred planets acting in their Elements and Modes; the Ascendant, and the twelve signs of the Zodiac, and the two Lunar Nodes.


The outer planets (Uranus, Neptune and Pluto), which were added by Western astrologers after their discovery by astronomers, as well as the various asteroids and comets which enter our Solar System, are not considered within the context of this course section.


The Planets

The Primal Will differentiated itself into seven active sentient energies which, from the point of view of this methodology, represent the progenitor powers underlying and acting in all creation. The activity of these energies are reflected symbolically as the seven planets which, when taken as a whole, comprise the symbolic representation of the principal of consciousness as manifested in the human being. A planet (aspect of consciousness) is perceived as being influenced or “colored” by the energy of the Sign (natural energy) in which it resides and acts upon the House (area of experience) in which it is resident.


The Signs

Each aspect of life force manifests itself in two characteristic ways in accordance with the universal law of duality. These two manifestations are the “day” and “night” thrones or domiciles (“homes”) of the planets i.e., the two qualities of expression that are most characteristic of their energy. To return to our previous example of the planet Mars, this planet has two domiciles, that of Aries and that of Scorpio, which are the day and night, or masculine and feminine, or external and internal expressions of its activity in nature (you and me), respectively.


The two exceptions to this are the Sun and the Moon which have only one domicile (“home”) as they express the primal essences, the Masculine (Sun) and the Feminine (Moon). These characteristic expressions by the two domiciles of the planets are further individualized by the Elemental character and Mode of the particular Sign. We’ll explore elements and modes in more detail later on.


The Houses

The Houses represent the organization of the activities which comprise human life into loose categories which, when taken as a whole, complete the entire sphere of human experience from birth to death. They are essentially experience solidified into cohesive and logical groupings so the areas of life in which the planetary powers find their principal focus can be clearly perceived and understood.


Circle of Life ‘Wheels within Wheels’

You can think of the Zodiac as the circle of life, around which every individual is destined to travel from the time they enter the natural world in birth until their departure in physical death. By living through the experiences of the 12 Houses we come into contact with the spiritual forces and natural energies represented by the Planets and the Signs. Through the study of astrology we develop an awareness of our relationship with the Universe from which emerges a vision of our purpose for living. and a mastery of self -- as we begin to acknowledge the fundamental unity between ourselves and all creation. There is an opportunity for spiritual growth by harmonizing the information in this course section with your personal experience and integrating the insights that astrology provides where it resonates.


The Starmap

At the heart of astrological practice lies the Natal Chart, or what I like to refer to as the Starmap. It’s a snapshot of the heavens as viewed from Earth on the exact moment you took your first breath immediately after birth (spirit); at the specific date, time and place of your entry into the world. The example chart above will serve as the basis for this discussion of the starmap, its primary elements and their interrelationship with one another.


The Western Natal Chart is erected as a circle which is divided into twelve equal areas of exactly 30 Degrees (30°) apiece (12 x 30° = 360° = the total number of degrees in a circle).

  • Each 30° area is assigned to a Sign/House combination determined by the actual birth information of the individual for whom the chart is casted. The planets are resident in these Sign/House combinations depending upon their position at the time of the individual’s birth.

  • The inner ring displays a series of numbers from 1 to 12 in a counterclockwise direction. These represent the Houses (areas of life experience) that were previously discussed.

  • In the middle ring reside the planets according to their position in the Zodiac at the time and place of birth.

  • On the outer ring the signs of the Zodiac according to their astrological position viewed from the time, date and place of birth are displayed.

  • Using the chart above as an example we are going to pursue an examination of its structure and symbolism so as to attain a total clarity and understanding before you cast your own chart.

The chart is constructed upon a model of three concentric rings. In the innermost ring are inscribed a series of numbers from 1 to 12 reading in a counterclockwise direction. These numbers identify the various Houses of Astrology which deal with the various aspects of human experience in the natural world. In the second ring there is also a twelvefold division into wedge shaped sections somewhat like a pie that has been sectioned for serving. This ring is inhabited by the planets or the energies of consciousness which act within the various houses. In the final ring reside the Signs of the Zodiac which are read counterclockwise from the 1st House, which is commonly called the Sign of the Ascendant, as it is the Sign rising in the east at the moment of your birth. Consider this your personal sun.


Obtaining your natal chart: There are a number of options available to help you attain an accurate starmap Below are discussed the options which are available to you so as to enable you to make an informed choice as to how you will go about obtaining your Chart:

  1. You can draw up your chart from scratch. This method is not for the fainthearted as it involves lengthy and complex mathematical calculations and detailed research to determine the correct positions of the planets with respect to the local time and the longitude and latitude of your birthplace. This was the method of the ancients and of astrologers before the advent of modern computers and software. If you decide to go for it you can always use the other methods listed to check your work.

  2. You may purchase a specialized software program for your computer which will allow you to cast your starmap as well as those of other people if you are inclined to learn and practice astrology.

  3. Lastly, you can obtain a copy of your chart from an online service or a local astrologer. The Internet offers thousands of sources from which you can obtain your chart, but before you do so please make sure that you completely understand the following information.

Whether you are casting your own chart or requesting one from an outside source there are two major factors that you need to take into consideration before-hand. The first is the type of Zodiac being employed and the second is the choice of the House System used by the software or provider source. Both of these factors are extremely important and will affect the overall design of your starmap.


There two most common type of Zodiac used to cast modern Natal charts are the Tropical Zodiac and the Sidereal Zodiac. The important difference between them is that the Tropical Zodiac is oriented according to the seasons of Nature while the Sidereal zodiac is orientated according to the exact positions of the stars. The Tropical zodiac is the dominant approach used in Western Astrology.


Throughout the history of astrology, there has been more than one approach to the division of the chart into the twelve segments which comprise the House System of the Chart. These systems go by various names such as Placidius, Koch, and Regiomontanus and are usually named after the noted historical astrologers who developed them. Other House Systems are named after their approach to the division of the chart into twelve equal segments such as the system employed in this book which is termed the: “Whole Sign System”.


In simplest terms, this system divides the chart into twelve equal house segments each of which is covered by the full 30° of the Zodiac Sign which inhabits the house. Each Sign/House combination begins on 0° of the Sign and ends on 30° of its associated Sign. On this page is illustrated the Whole Sign System in the natural Zodiac which is identical to a chart whose first house carries the rising Sign of Aries. NOTE: We’re using the whole sign system because the math is easier to comprehend. When erecting your own chart this is the least accurate system as very few people are born at exactly 0°.


Astro Lingo: Planets & Symbols

Learning something new, as you know, always involves learning new vocabulary words. In this section you will learn a brand new language (lingo). The vocabulary associated with Astrology includes Planets, Signs, Houses, Elements, Modes and other specialized terms. Consider this similar to learning the language of music where you would have to learn to speak of notes, clefs, chords and all the other diverse and specialized terms that comprise the musical language. I am comparing musical lingo to Astrology to highlight the distinction that must be made concerning the images used to portray the various concepts. Just as in music, an astrological image is more than a symbol – it is more rightly termed a “glyph” i.e., a complex symbol with multiple levels of meaning and should always be approached from a multifaceted perspective.


The Ascendant Sign

This is the sign of the Zodiac that was rising on the horizon at the moment of your birth. It is a most fundamental aspect of you as an individual – the foundation upon which your individuality is built– and determines the astrological character of the soil out of which your consciousness has grown and developed. This is how people see and respond to you, similar to how we see the sun rise every morning.


The Seven Personal Planets

The Planets express aspects of your inner consciousness experience and when collectively analyzed, the manifestation of the consciousness principal in the individual. It is accurate to visualize the Planets as the inner powers (DNA) of your being which maintain and energize your spiritual life (chakras).


THE SUN

The Sun represents that aspect of your consciousness which you experience as yourself consciousness – the “I” through which you express your free will. This is your outward nature.


THE MOON

The Moon represents that aspect of consciousness which you experience as your inner nature. To the ancients the Moon represented the “sensitive mind” and may be represented as the expression of the emotional dimension of the personality as well as the realm of intuition, dream and imagination.

SATURN

To the ancients, Saturn represented the power of “agnoia” (self unknowing) --the hatred of knowledge or ignorance which causes a restriction and limitation that will be experienced where-ever this planet resides in the chart. Saturn is also connected to time (karma), law, punishment, and servitude.


The Lunar Nodes

The Lunar Nodes are not actually considered planets but rather sensitive points in the Natal Chart. Analyzing these points in an individual chart is an ancient practice. Essentially, the Nodes represent the place where the Moon crosses the path of the Sun as seen from the Earth (the “ecliptic”). Thus there are two nodal points –North, and South that are always exactly opposing one another. Their traditional meanings in your Natal Chart are explained below.


THE SOUTH NODE

The position of The South Node in your chart represents an unfulfilled aspect of your consciousness. It is essentially old habits that you are carrying around that needs to be analyzed so that you can incorporate and express them in ways that improve and progress your life.


THE NORTH NODE

The position of The North Node in your chart represents “the answer” – where you will discover what you need to understand when analyzing the unfulfilled aspect of your consciousness as revealed by the South Node. In essence the North Node represents the key to the lock “South Node. When combined an individual is able to unlock the mystery of their habitual nature.

Signs and Elements

There are four active elements in Astrology – Fire, Water, Air and Earth which correspond to the Spiritual, Emotional, Mental and Physical aspects of your life respectively. The proportions of these four elements in the chart express your fundamental way of perceiving the world. It helps to visualize this as being similar to wearing a pair of glasses that are “tinted” with these elements. These elements when associated with their corresponding signs are also known as triplicities, groups of three Signs that share the same element.

The Elements are conceptions that find a broad correspondence in the expression of the human experience of consciousness.

  • Fire is an active energy associated with the force of will, goal directed activity, initiative and creativity. It corresponds with the suite of Wands in the Tarot. Individuals whose Fire element dominates in their chart tend to express initiative and leadership abilities.

  • Earth expresses the action of the body, physicality, strength, growth and the material conditions of life. It is a stable and practical element which corresponds to the suite of Pentacles in the Tarot. The Earth element brings forth a practical, realistic and no nonsense approach to life.

  • Air expresses the action of articulate thought. It is associated with plans, spoken and written communication and things of the mind. Air individuals tend to be very mental and live lives dominated by logic and reason. Swords are the suite of the Tarot to which this element corresponds.

  • Water, the last of the four ancient elements, expresses the actions of the emotions. Water is love and affection, dreams, desires, pleasure, romance and friendship. Water is sensitive, compassionate and intuitive and finds expression in the Tarot suite of Cups.

Those who are predominately water live through feeling and value the imagination and often express what they feel through artistic creations or compassionate service to others such as participation in charitable or philanthropic activities.


The Fire Triplicity

In the Natal Chart, the Fire Triplicity is comprised of three Signs: Aries, Leo and Sagittarius. Fire is the most active of all of the astrological elements and expresses an active, creative and spiritual energy. It is the symbol of the will and of action and individuals with this dominant element in their Natal Chart tend to be outgoing, active, energetic, dynamic and spirited. They are enthusiastic and creative individuals who possess leadership potential and who approach life in a positive and aggressive manner.


The Earth Triplicity

In the Natal Chart, the Earth Triplicity is comprised of three Signs: Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn. Earth is the most solid and stable of all the elements and yields a temperament concerned with practicality and achieving concrete results. Often there is considerable skill in using and managing material resources coupled with dependability, a realistic and pragmatic attitude and a strong sense of purpose.


The Air Triplicity

In the Natal Chart, the Air Triplicity is comprised of three Signs: Gemini, Libra and Aquarius. These are the Signs of the mental energy and thus express the power of thought and ability to communicate – the intellectual aspect of life; communication in personal and social relationships as well as mental abilities and intellectual attributes. Ideas, intellect, thinking and knowledge are the domain of the Air Element. If the Air element dominates in your Natal Chart your mental and communication abilities are your strongest assets. You will excel in the communication of ideas and prosper socially due to your skill in human relationships.


The Water Triplicity

The Water Triplicity of the Natal Chart consists of the Signs of Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces. Water is the element of dreams, desires, hopes, wishes, emotions, friendship and love. It is associated with the emotional basis of personal and social relationships and with the unconscious mind. If your dominant element is “Water” it indicates that you are powerfully concerned with feeling, have a sensitive emotional awareness and dwell deeply in the realm of the emotions and the deeper psychic aspects of life.


Modes and Signs

A Starmap also reveals the “Mode” of your life – essentially the way that you go about things, the dominant manner of your behavior and type of choices you make in the world. There are three Modes within the Starmap:


The Cardinal Mode embraces the Signs of Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn. These Signs tend to start, initialize and lead. When this Mode predominates in your chart it indicates that you are a self-starter - person of direct and decisive action who has a realistic grasp of circumstances and their potentials. You have a strong need for action and excel at initiating and organizing new enterprises. Your immediate concern is for the present and neither the past nor the future is of much concern to you. You are capable of acting in a very opportunistic manner when it comes to seizing opportunities that will be advantageous to you.

The Fixed Mode embraces the Signs of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius. These Signs tend to maintain, stabilize and continue. When this Mode predominates in your chart, persistence and determination motivated by the desire to achieve concrete results lies at the core of your activity and behavioral choices in the world. You are very goal oriented and are someone who sees things through to the end. You are inclined towards future goals, and are willing to put forth an unwavering effort to achieve developmental milestones. Sustained efforts over a long period of time are second nature to you – you hang on, see things through and work to preserve life.


The Mutable Mode embraces the Signs of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces. These Signs tend to adapt, stop or end. If the Mutable Mode predominates in your chart, adaptability and the ability to utilize past experiences for present benefit are your strongest points. You have an excellent memory and a richness of character born out of broad experience as well as the ability to mold yourself to survive, adapt and prosper in any circumstances. You also have the ability to work around obstacles rather than trying to control them directly.


Ascendant Signs

This is the sign of the Zodiac that was rising on the horizon at the moment of your birth. According to Astrology, it is one of the most fundamental aspects of you as an individual - the astrological foundation upon which your individuality is built and which determines the character of the soil out of which your consciousness has grown and developed. Essentially the ascendant sign defines what people initially see when they look at you. Sometimes referred to as the Rising Sign --it is the First House of your chart and is the Sign that was rising in the east at the hour of your birth. Whether or not your ascendant reflects your true nature is determined by the rest of your chart.

In the area of the chart occupied by your Ascendant Sign you will see an “Asc”. This denotes the exact minute of your birth provided you are NOT using the whole house system.


Look up your Ascendant below to gain an insight into how its essential astrological character manifests itself when initially meeting others and or in your conscious awareness.


Ascendant of Aries

Driven by a strong will to succeed, people with Aries rising always stand out from the crowd. They are determined individuals who take a direct approach to solving problems and attain success through their ability to clearly see and act upon essential details that others cannot perceive. Arians appear to be adventurous, energetic, pioneering, courageous, enthusiastic, confident, dynamic and quick witted though on their shadow side they can be very selfish, quick tempered, impulsive, impatient and foolhardy.


Ascendant of Taurus

Natives of Taurus possess a natural charm and are often very reliable and stable people. They appear to be blessed with an abundance of common sense and seem methodical, careful and decisive in all that they do. Taurus rising’s worship material and social security and place a great deal of emphasis on acquiring material possessions and social status. They advance step by step in the pursuit of their goals, leaving no stone unturned and taking no shortcuts along the way. At their best natives of Taurus are patient, reliable, warm hearted, loving, determined and security conscious but on the shadow side of their personality they can be seen as prone to jealousy, possessiveness, inflexibility, self-indulgence and greed.


Ascendant of Gemini

Versatility is the cornerstone of the Gemini Ascendant character and there is a strong need to communicate. Gemini rising’s tend to be very logical and rational people but can be very inconsistent as their great need for variety often leads them to acquire a superficial knowledge of many subjects but with no depth in any of them. At their best natives of Gemini initially come across adaptable, communicative, witty, eloquent, youthful and lively people but on their shadow side they can seem to be nervy, tense, superficial, inconsistent, cunning and annoyingly inquisitive.


Ascendant of Cancer

Tenacity and bravery in the face of difficulties, protection of self and family and a loving, kind and caring heart are the foundations of a person born with the Ascendant Sign of Cancer. Natives of Cancer are blessed with strong and vivid imaginations and a mind that works quickly and on an instinctual level but they are prone to worry and can be very moody at times. At their best the natives of Cancer appear to be loving, intuitive, imaginative, shrewd, cautious, protective and sympathetic people but on their shadow side they can come off as changeable, moody, over emotional, touchy, clinging and unable to let go.


Ascendant of Leo

Leo’s are characterized by their warmth, generosity and desire to understand others. They have an inherently powerful creative urge and an infectious vitality and enthusiasm. Their intense need of personal fulfillment always motivates them to live life to the fullest. On the positive side of their character Leo Ascendants come across as generous, warm hearted, creative, and enthusiastic, broad minded, faithful and loving individuals but the shadow side of their personality can make them seem pompous, patronizing, dogmatic, intolerant and dictatorial.


Ascendant of Virgo

Natives of Virgo are the pragmatists of the zodiac; they are highly organized, reliable and methodical and can always be counted on for an exacting, diligent and industrious approach to all that they do. Virgo rising’s have abundant nervous energy and can be very talkative. Their critical and analytical faculties are their greatest assets but on the shadow side of their personality they can come across as over critical worry warts that are too conservative and focused on unattainable perfectionism.


Ascendant of Libra

Librans have a deep inner need for harmony and balance.
