“What is a birth chart? How can you tell if your child’s birth chart is good or bad? What can be done to rectify a bad birth chart?” is a question I answered on Quora.

Homepage Topic 1 imageHere’s my view on this…
A birth-chart is a reflection of a moment in time, and space (the solar system) as viewed from a place on the Earth.

There is no “good or bad” birth-chart per se

A given chart represents the situation a soul (or psyche) is born into, that it needs to work with in this lifetime.

A chart can be rectified if needing to be adjusted for an exact time of birth. However, a situation cannot be changed by attempting to rectify, what is seen as, a “bad” birth-chart to a more favourable time. When we are born we are born… The chart itself has no power but to mirror the situation one is born into.

But the person can learn to apply their energies to the best outcome for them.

It may be said that a person handling a tough situation in life has a better chance of awakening and making spiritual progress than someone with an easier time of it – and that is why they have chosen a challenging situation – but it so depends on the strength and commitment of the soul involved once they have entered into the live situation.

I hope this helps.

    ‘If the YOD is the Finger of God’ then there is a predestination present.’ To what extent is this tenable?
    My chart shows one YOD: its apex is my Moon at 18.14 of my Capricorn 7th House. Saturn at 20.24 of my Gemini 12th House is quincunx my Moon, as is my Jupiter at 17.59 of my 2nd House Leo.
    The YOD issue bothers me often, particularly because I have taken it for granted that Moon in the 7th House is the ‘destined to marry’ (i.e. there is no choice) indicator.
    Please help me sort this out.

    • I would suggest your Yod is a configuration that you cannot ignore. It will have implications for your spiritual work and direction this time around. With your Moon at the apex of Jupiter and Saturn I’d anticipate a tendency for you to swing in mood from optimism to pessimism or security to insecurity – depending on whether you are listening to Jupiter or Saturn. With Moon in 7th house there is a likely tendency of you to seek direction, indeed salvation, through others, through your relationships.

      I don’t know if your “destined to marry” is seen as a good thing or bad thing by you. Whatever way you look at it, you have to avoid controlling relationships – either where you are in control or the other person is in control. It must be built on compassion. You just need to be in control of yourself and to trust in your own judgement. Be secure in yourself, stop looking for it through others. Don’t become a victim.

      I hope this helps. On your other comments I’ll get back to you when I can.

        Thank you, Francis! This is the best, actually the one sense-making, account of the Yod that I have come upon. And I have been seeking!
        I hate the thought of being destined. Your ‘don’t be a victim’ is very reeassuring. It took me a long time to learn that lesson.
        Thankyou again. You are brilliant.

        • Hello sophiejo
          Well thank you for your comments. I’m glad I’ve been of some help.

          If I thought that astrology was all about predestination (I know some astrologers may look at it like that) I would’ve dropped my study of it years ago. I don’t buy into fate or destiny in that way. I believe we all have a purpose for being here (whether we ever get to be conscious of it or not – learning to love ourselves is the most important) and sure there maybe milestones that we planned in to meet up with, before we arrived, but the meeting up has to come from us, of our own volition and willingness to allow it to happen.

          I just wanted to pick up on something you said earlier re “my solicitor, who simply did not understand the area of property law that I had been studying for some ten years.” Studying law on property is a great way of working with that Yod of yours. Think about it.

            Thank you, Francis! I sure am doing that, with a will now.
