As a child of the universe the planets and zodiac signs have endowed you with their qualities and attributes. They’re specified by your birth time and depicted in your birth chart.
Your chart takes you on a journey to yourself and allows you to conduct a background check to discover how you got to be who you are.
It’s a personal ready-reference that reveals what you have in your character.
If there’s determination and persistence in your birth chart you’ve got it; if there’s enthusiasm and zest you’ve got it; and if there’s practicality and pragmatism you’ve got it.
If there’s struggle you’ll have it; if there’s reckless impulse you’ll have it; and if there’s luck and good fortune you’ll have it.
You’ll have the qualities and behavior traits indicated by your Sun sign; and the personality traits indicated by your ascendant sign.
If there’s kindness, loyalty and devotion you’ll have it; and if there’s deceit, imposture and skullduggery you’ll have it.
If the water element is powerful you’ll be emotional and sensitive; and if the movable quality is strong you’ll be a pioneer.
If there’s a predominance of planets on the east side of your chart you’ll shape events and mold circumstance; and if the majority are on the west side you’ll be shaped by circumstance and the actions of others.
And if more planets are above the horizon you’ll receive adequate notice and recognition; and if the majority are below the horizon you won’t.

Some birth chart indicators like the number of planets above and below the horizon and the number of planets on the east and west sides of your chart can’t be changed but you can change an ineffective attitude mapped by a discordant zodiac sign and you can recondition and change or modify the ineffective thinking and feeling behavior mapped by a discordant planet.
By mapping your character as it exists at the time of your birth your birth chart allows you to see your true self and to take steps to mend the developmental black spots that as misguided thoughts, feelings and impulses are thwarting your success and undermining your mental, emotional and spiritual development right here and now.
