What is a Natal Chart?
A natal chart, also known as a birth chart, is a snapshot of the sky at the precise moment and location of your birth. This astrological map captures the positions of the Sun, Moon, planets, and other celestial bodies, offering insights into your personality, relationships, and life path.
The Primal Triad forms the foundation of astrological analysis, presenting a holistic perspective on an individual's character.
Sun Sign: You probably already know your Sun sign: it is the astrological sign where the Sun was positioned at the time of your birth. Whether you're a Taurus or a Libra, this sign represents your core identity, the essence of who you are, and your primary source of energy.
Moon Sign: Reflecting the position of the Moon at your birth, the Moon sign delves into your emotions, instincts, and reactions. It provides insight into your inner self, your emotional needs, and how you nurture and connect with others.
Ascendant (Rising) Sign: The Ascendant sign is the zodiac sign that was rising on the eastern horizon at the moment you were born. It's associated with the way you project yourself to the world and how others perceive you. The Ascendant influences your outward demeanor and approach to life.
Using Your Natal Chart to Inspire a Mala Design
For me, design inspiration comes in many forms, and I love the creative challenge of translating the information on your natal chart into a Mala design. Besides considering your astrology signs and their qualities, I'm guided by my intuition and an understanding of crystal properties. These designs serve as a direct connection between the wearer, myself, and the sky. It's a pretty magical process, if you ask me!
