Understanding how to do astrological interpretation offers everyone a chance to fully understand their own and other people's character. However, most methods of teaching astrology force people to memorize planetary placements, study the solar system, learn complex astrological and astronomical facts, etc. As a result, many people think learning astrology is "too complex" for them.
Actually, the basics of astrology are simple and easily learned. This website will guide a person through six easy steps (taken from the ideas of Stephen Arroyo and several other astrologers) which give the basic information needed to begin interpreting astrological charts.
First, either get out an astrological chart to interpret or create an astrological chart. Use an astrological website such as Astrodienst or a chart-making program to create the chart. If using Astrodienst, on the "free horoscope" page scroll down to the section marked "Chart drawing, Ascendant" and click on it.
Follow the instructions on Astrodienst to enter the person's birth information. If possible, use the birth time on a birth certificate. If a birth certificate is not available, ask those who were present at the birth. However, this time will tend to be less accurate than a birth certificate.
After the instructions on Astrodienst are completed, a birth chart will appear on the page.
