‘Astrology is best defined as the set of theories and practices interpreting the positions of the heavenly bodies in terms of human and terrestrial implications. (The former have variously been considered signs and, more controversially, causes.) The subject – and therefore its study – is riven with characteristics, often paradoxical, that constitute both its interest and its difficulty. One is that although inextricably entangled with what are now demarcated as science, magic, religion, politics, psychology and so on, it cannot be reduced to any of these.’
… Patrick Curry, The Oxford Companion to the History of Modern Science.
An astrological birth chart is a symbolic representation of the solar system viewed at a precise moment in time, from a specific location. In a natal chart, this is calculated from the exact date, time and place of birth. If an astrological birth chart is to represent the dynamics of a person accurately, it must be as complex as human nature itself. For those new to astrology, just the look of a chart can be rather daunting. To help clarify this labyrinth of symbols, circles and squiggles, 7 short video clips of David Charles Rowan explaining the dynamics of a chart, and a little of the philosophy surrounding it, are presented here for you. The links beneath the video clips take you to pages with easy-on-the-eye graphics and both introductory and advanced descriptions.
