As someone who’s moderately well-versed in astrology, I’ve used apps like Co – Star, follow my fair share of Instagram astrology meme pages, and know the difference between a rising, moon and sun sign. However, this experience was vastly different.
Let me explain.
What the star signs are like when there’s a problem at work. Post continues below.
But first, what exactly is a birth chart, and how do you ‘read’ one?
These were the questions I had for Chani, who was recently in Sydney for the launch of Spotify Cosmic playlists. The feature customises musical playlists for each star sign based on the astrological activity of each month, and the LA-astrologer is the woman behind the horoscopes.
“A birth chart is a snapshot of the sky, the moment you took your first breath, and it contains information about any aspect of any person’s life,” she explains.
“It’s about the relationships between the different planets, and where they are all mean something very specific.”
Although you can generate your birth chart through apps and websites like Cafe Astrology and Co - Star, a reading will give you much more nuanced information about your 'astrological personality,' so to speak.
