Welcome to the unique world of NATAL astrology. ‘Natal’ means ‘birth.’ This is also called a ‘horoscope’ or ‘chart.’
We are able to look at the month, day and year you were born (plus your time of birth and where you were born) and erect a natal chart. A natal chart is also known as your ‘birth chart.’ Your path that you wanted to take to learn things from, as you grew up into an adult, is dyed and cast (blue-print) for this lifetime.
A natal astrologer can look at your natal chart and interpret the symbols (planets, aspects and signs). Every planet and every sign is interpolated into knowledge to help you to understand yourself. There are many facets to natal astrology and different ‘slants’ on it. Most natal astrologers are called natal counselors or astrology counselors. They want to help you to understand yourself. In understanding yourself, you will know your strengths and weaknesses. One of the many things an astrological counselor will do is talk to you about ways to go about changing anything unhealthy within yourself. Sometimes, that is through networking you to a professional person. Or, simply discussing it with you.
A natal astrologer is not versed in medicine or health issues. For that, you need a medical astrologer. We also suggest that most natal astrologers CANNOT find good surgery dates for a client either and strongly suggest to again, contact a medical astrologer, who can. Please see our Medical Astrology department for more on these items.
We can look at your natal chart and know where POTENTIAL stresses or problems can raise their head. We also know how to network you to professionals to help you solve these issues, too. In natal astrology we believe that whatever is there, can be changed with proper attitude changes, emotional changes and the client eating and living a healthy lifestyle.
Never. That is against our professional code of ethics. Let’s face it: we are ALL going to die some day from some thing. It’s just a question of what and when. We frequently see windows of crisis in a person’s chart–but the free will choice of that person is there, too. We cannot, 100% of the time, know what the client will choose. So, we NEVER predict a death or when death will occur.
In many ways!
Just to get to know yourself, your creativity, your strengths and how best to use the energies you have for this lifetime.
Unhappy in your job? Well, a natal astrologer can suggest careers that are more in keeping with the energies that are in your natal chart. We at Medicine Garden recommend Rosemarie Brown.
Don’t like where you live? Again, a natal astrologer can tell you where you will bloom and grow versus feeling as if a weight were on you and nothing but awful things happen to you all the time. It DOES make a difference where you live. Why not live where the energy is BEST for you and supports you in being all who you can be?
Getting married? Believe me, there are good days for it and bad days. You don’t want to start a marriage on a bad day, do you?
Starting a company? Wanting to attain your goals? Natal astrology can help in the timing of these things based upon your chart. There is a right time and a wrong time for such things–use natal astrology to know when it is best for you so you can be successful.
Sometimes people want a PROGRESSION. That requires hiring us at $100/hr to sit down and look at what is going on in your life in-depth. We recommend Rosemarie Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want a medical astrologer to do this for you. Progressions are about the serious things in life. If, for example, you want to know what the next year of your life is going to be like, a natal astrologer can do your progressions and tell you what crisis and opportunities may occur and when. We recommend Rosemarie Brown for natal progressions, who can be contacted at email@example.com. This will help you to get your ducks in a row, so to speak.
We get this question so often. Many people are afraid of cancer and we don’t blame them. No natal astrologer worth her or his salt would EVER tell you something like this! It is immoral. While a medical astrologer can tell with great accuracy when a possible disease may strike you, we can’t always say for sure WHAT disease it will be. They will have a pretty good ‘feel’ for it, but your own family and genetic background is your best indicator for whether the possibility of getting Cancer is there or not. Medical astrologers focus in on how to fix what is wrong by looking at your chart to suggest ways and means of getting you well once more. And a good natal astrologer, if your health is involved, will refer you out to a medical astrologer for help. Natal astrologers are not health professionals.
Some natal astrologers can. And so can a medical astrologer. We do a lot of business with couples who have had problems getting pregnant. We can suggest weeks or months when it is best for the woman to conceive.
Some natal astrologers can. To be on the safe side, we suggest you employ a medical astrologer to really answer this question. Medical astrologers do a lot of work with expectant mommies before the baby is born. We can tell by looking at the mother’s chart as to what KIND of birth she is going to experience. We can warn her ahead of time if we see trouble and the mother, in turn, can tell the doctor so that everyone is aware and takes special precautions to protect the mother during the delivery phase.
No, we don’t. We see patterns and signatures set up in the planets, aspects and signs within a person’s natal chart. They are possibilities. Our job is to reflect back to you what we see and then give you CHOICES that YOU CHOOSE. We never tell you what to do!
Yes, we do. Most natal astrologers have a network list of professionals in many areas and they are available to the client from which to choose. Sometimes a client will need psychotherapy. The natal astrologer may recommend this and it’s up to the client to decide whether or not s/he wants to do it.
That’s right! Our job, as we see it, is to get you in touch with yourself; to know who you are… your possibilities, your strengths and creative abilities. We have no interest in scaring you or making you fear us. We don’t make those kinds of pronouncements. No one in their right mind would! Instead, we will look at you, your emotions, your environment, your upbringing, your hopes/dreams and goals and create a plan of health so that you can stretch your wings in this lifetime and achieve them. After all, knowledge educates you to make your most informed (and we hope, most positive) decisions. Natal astrologers are there to serve you in this capacity.
