How to Calculate Your Birth Chart

In the last few years, astrology is becoming more and more popular among young people. From astro meme accounts to extensive videos about the transits on TikTok, it's become very clear to everyone: there is so much more than just your zodiac sign.

In my early teens, I was always intrigued by magazine horoscopes. I thought that astrology only included the twelve zodiac signs. As a Virgo Sun, I resonate pretty well with the properties of this Earth sign: practical, detail-oriented, perfectionist, intellectual, with a strong focus on serving and helping others. Although I found astrology very interesting back then, I also knew there had to be much more and that I was more than just my zodiac sign. The whole world couldn't be reduced to 12 different archetypes, this would be way too limiting.

At some stage I stumbled across a blog and I discovered that we also have a moon sign. At that moment, a whole world literally and figuratively opened up for me. I scrolled through the pages, reading about birth charts, planets, and houses. I couldn't make anything beautiful out of it at that time, but I was very fascinated. From that moment on I started to immerse myself and read everything I could find about my own birth chart.

What is a Birth Chart? A birth chart is a 'screenshot' of the sky and the positions of the planets at the moment you were born. A birth chart reveals your strengths and weaknesses, how you can grow and what you need in this life. You will soon discover that in addition to your sun sign you also have a moon sign, Mercury sign, Venus sign, Mars sign, and much more.

All these planets are in a sign that completes your cosmic blueprint. It can be very overwhelming at first but as you study each element one by one, you will learn so much about yourself. Perhaps the information you read confirms certain things that you already felt deep down. But beware: this not a sprint, it's a marathon. Such knowledge will require a lot of time to be able to study it, understand it and grasp it properly. Indeed, thinkers and philosopher have been writing about astrology for thousands of years, each adding their unique piece to an incredibly rich and complex puzzle. In addition, you also have different forms of astrology and different systems that astrologers use. If it starts to feel overwhelming, then go back to basics: learning about your big 3 (sun, moon and rising signs).

If you are curious about what such a birth chart looks like, you can calculate it here. An exact time of birth is very important in this calculation, so that your planetary positions and astrological houses are as accurate as possible. You can usually find this on a birth certificate or request your time of birth from the hospital or municipality where you were born.

Now that you have your birth data and your birth chart. What next? There are tons of forums, videos and posts about astrology online and I get that this can be very overwhelming as you may not know how to start or which source to trust: Information overload! Here's my tip for you: don't try to figure out your entire chart right away, because it really takes time. But don't feel discouraged, the process can be so much fun! If you still want to go into depth at a faster pace, you can of course always book a reading with me or follow my course. In this course, I show and explain step by step how you can interpret your natal chart for yourself.

Wondering about my approach as an astrologer? I use astrology as a tool for developing self-awareness and self-love. Ultimately, the birth chart is a mirror and you will see things that you already know, but you may also find things that make you look again and appreciate yourself more. As a professional astrologer, I do my absolute best to introduce you to your truest self, on behalf of the universe.

Which Healing Crystal for my Zodiac Sign?

Which Healing Crystal for my Zodiac Sign

Which Crystal for my Zodiac Sign?

Have you ever wondered which healing crystals best match your zodiac sign? Today, we are exploring the heart of the zodiac to discover which stones and crystals resonate the most with each zodiac sign!

 

How are stones associated with astrological signs?


The twelve signs of the zodiac all have their own energy and personality. According to their vibrations and their different ways of apprehending life, each astrological zodiac sign has its corresponding healing crystal(s). Our selection has been designed to bring energies complementary to those of the astrological signs: the stones act as emotional support and resonate particularly with the sign to which they are attributed.

 

A stone for my sign?

Aries

Dates: March 21st to April 20th • Element: Fire

The first sign of the zodiacal wheel, Aries gets its power from a growing inner fire. Like the eldest of a sibling, Aries is the one who pushes others to realize their dreams, to take action. The Ram doesn't hesitate to give you a helping hand if you need it! Aries embodies the genuine and flamboyant color of bright red. Very (too much?) energizing, red (and Aries) conveys a very strong fiery energy that stimulates motivation, strength and determination. This zodiac sign is ruled by Mars, planet of action, efficiency and strength of character.

Healing crystals for the zodiac sign of Aries

Red Jasper: live a little, a lot and passionately by reconnecting to what really makes you vibrate. Little extra tip: it promotes emotional balance! Ideal stone to keep in your pocket or to place on your desk.

Tiger's Eye: protected from negative waves, you have the courage and the strength to take up all challenges. You can count on yourself! Keep it in your bag to boost your daily motivation wherever you go.

Taurus

Dates: April 21st to May 20th • Element: Earth

Second sign of the zodiac, Taurus structures ideas and projects driven by its big brother, Aries. It brings slowness when everything is going too fast, to maintain control. Taurus is a sign of the Earth element, its color a lush green: that of rejuvenating Nature or that of trees bursting with sap that turn green in spring (its season) seeking to unite their heights with the Sun to flourish. The planet that governs Taurus is Venus, this star sign, like the goddess, symbolizes the heart, the way we look at ourselves (both our body and our mind), art and the way we communicate our love, and the resulting quality of relationship.

Healing crystals for the zodiac sign of Taurus

Rose Quartz: self-love mode activated! Make way for softness and emotional balance! Slip it into your bra to send those beautiful vibes straight to your heart.

Cancer

Dates: June 21st to July 22th • Element: Water

Fourth sign of the zodiac, Cancer softens the atmosphere by bringing the energy of the heart when things get (too) cerebral. A water sign whose sharp intuition always help his bigger brothers Aries, Taurus and Gemini to readjust the shot in case of doubt. Cancer projects a magic color: silver. Bright and shimmering moon-gray, silver adds a touch of dreaminess to familiar environments: the repainted furniture of your childhood home, the color of your first car, or the glitzy treasures of your mom's jewelry box. The Crab brings this comforting side that we easily recognize in Cancer. This zodiac sign is ruled by the Moon, symbol of the subconscious, the divine feminine and of inner, emotional and intuitive life.

The fifth sign of the zodiacal wheel, Leo ignites the dance floor with its fiery energy inviting to shine. The Lion's legendary big heart always pushes it to the front of the stage (without it being displeasing). Even though its sense of celebration can wreak havoc on the zodiac, Leo will always make their loved ones shine by their side. Leo is a Fire sign represented by the solar radiance of gold. Receiver and transmitter of light, gold (like Leo) is a color that diffuses a lot of positivity: it's the jewel that transforms your outfit, the show-off gift wrap that you offer to your best friend or even confetti that you launch on New Year's Eve. Gold is a celebration, it brings the theatricality and the life force that we recognize in Leo.

Healing crystals for the zodiac sign of Leo

Sunstone: your spontaneity and your authenticity make you shine with a thousand lights: smile and just be your authentic and unapologetic self! Wear it daily to illuminate your energy.

Scorpio

Dates: October 24th to November 22nd • Element: Water

Eighth sign of the zodiac, Scorpio is the one who is not afraid to question the way its colleagues act. Beneath its sarcasm, which makes it difficult to pin down, Scorpio's mission is to lift taboos to finally deal with the things that prevent progress: it was about time the Scorpion arrived! Scorpio represents the deep, absorbing shade of black. Associated with secrecy and mystery, black makes Scorpio a magnetic and intriguing being who knows how to give it all to a project if it's something it truly loves and is passionate about. This zodiac sign is governed by Pluto, planet of resilience, transformation and rebirth which gives it this abyssal force of introspection which readjusts its thinking and allows it to reach for the moon and stars.

Sagittarius

Dates: November 23rd to December 21st • Element: Fire

Ninth sign of the zodiac, Sagittarius is the one who will encourage its elders to take unexplored paths to find the most suitable one. With Sagittarius, failure gives way to experience and each blockage is only one step before landing the moon. Get your backpack ready, we're off on an adventure for real! Sagittarius, ready to unhook the arrow in the heart of the Milky Way, brings a touch of magic thanks to the color it expresses: purple. Both intuitive and creative, purple gives Sagittarius its great freedom of spirit that always ends up taking them off the path (or to the other side of the world). This zodiac sign is ruled by Jupiter, planet of luck, success, expansion and social ascension which makes it the most positive, optimistic and loving creature in the zodiac!

Healing crystals for the zodiac sign of Sagittarius

Garnet: be creative and passionate until the end! You have always known how to surprise others in your reflections. Wear it every day to sort through your thousand and one ideas and make the right decisions.

Pisces

Dates: February 19th to March 20th • Element: Water

Last sign of the zodiacal wheel, Pisces are those who review their cosmic troops with a sudden "how are you feeling?" or "how was your day?". Very attentive, they naturally pamper those around them because after all, if everyone feels good in the team, we will reach the stars at the speed of light! The sign of Pisces diffuses a heavenly turquoise which is reminiscent of the lagoons of the most beautiful beaches in the world: a natural beauty that makes you dream! This zodiac sign is governed by Neptune, the planet which symbolizes dreams, ideals, beliefs, feelings and the way in which we apprehend our emotions (and their excesses).

Amethyst: create your bubble of protective serenity and follow the path of your intuition, it has so much to share with you! Use it during your meditation session to purify the energy around you and create your calming space.

Larimar: Meaning and Uses

Zodiac stone: Leo, Pisces, Aquarius, Aries

Chakra: Throat

Properties: Relaxation, Healing, Higher Wisdom

Affirmation: "I trust my innate power and wisdom."

Larimar is the embodiment of the tranquil Sea and Sky energies. Larimar cools tempers and calms fears, relieves stress and nurtures the physical and emotional bodies. A stone of clear communication, it provides the strength and courage needed to speak openly from the heart. It embodies the Goddess energy, and aids in contacting Angels and the Divine Feminine. 

Larimar utilizes Water energy, the energy of stillness, quiet strength, and purification. It embodies potentialities unrealized. Larimar is believed to channel ancient wisdom from Atlantis during meditation or sleep.

As a reflexology tool, Larimar opens the acupressure/acupuncture meridians at the feet allowing for the recognition of which painful spots lead to which areas of the body in order to remove and clear the dis-ease. Larimar is a wonderful stone for mothers, during and after pregnancy. It is great for them to wear Larimar as it helps in alleviating post-partum depression, and relaxes the stress associated with new parenthood.

Larimar can only be found and sourced in one area of the world: the Dominican Republic. It is sometimes called Atlantis Stone in reference to an ancient prophet's declaration that Atlantis was once part of the Dominican Republic, a claim affirmed by various authorities in metaphysics. He further declared that what made Atlantis great was the beautiful blue stone that carried healing powers. Its description bears an uncanny resemblance to Larimar.

Seraphinite: Spiritual Meaning and Properties

Seraphinite: Spiritual Meaning and Properties

Zodiac stone: Sagittarius

Chakra: Heart and Crown

Properties: Angelic connection, Enlightenment, Divine energy

Affirmation: "Angelic energies heal and protect me."

Seraphinite, also known as Serafine and Serafinite, is an extremely rare gem variety of Clinochlore, a hydrous magnesium iron aluminum silicate. The name Seraphinite comes from the Greek word "seraphim", which refers to a celestial being with three pairs of wings. This could be due to the silvery feather-like chatoyant fibers that can be seen in Seraphinite.

Seraphinite is particularly attuned to the Heart Chakra, infusing the aura with vibrations of wholeness and well-being, nurturing and love, enveloping not only those who wear or carry it, but also those who behold it. Seraphinite's energies are feminine in tone, and may assist in experiencing a greater awareness of the Divine Feminine. Seraphinite assists in releasing emotional patterns and tendencies that no longer serve the soul and spirit. It brings an enlightened, joyful energy and allows one to react to life in a balanced, more harmonious way.

This stone encourages the appreciation of all that is growing - physically, emotionally or spiritually, and encourages the refinements of tenderness and care. It defines a sense of order - in life, in the universe, even in chaos - lending the understanding that one is neither helpless nor hopeless in the creation or correction of one's personal reality.

Seraphinite has only one known locality in the entire world, Russia. Russian mineralogist Nikolay Koksharov (1818-1893) is often credited with its discovery. It occurs in the Korshunovskoye iron skarn deposit in Eastern Siberia.

Zodiac Stone: Leo, Taurus, Gemini, Libra

Chakra: All

Affirmation: "I can live with uncertainties. My masculine and feminine energies are balancing one another."

Besides Tourmaline Quartz, there are many spelling variations of the name of this stone: Tourmalated Quartz, Tourmalinated Quartz, or Tourmaline in Quartz. All of these terms describe a clear Quartz crystal penetrated by Tourmaline needles.

Tourmaline Quartz is a very powerful crystal of balance, integrating yang and yin, masculine and feminine polarities, darkness and light, active and receptive. Regarded as a symbol of great fortune it is carried when luck is needed. Associated with both the Root and Crown chakras, its detoxifying energy will benefit anyone who needs to restore harmony. It helps to rise above pettiness and reduces self-sabotage until you can speak out. It deflects negative energy and unlocks energy blockages within the body. It aids clarity and can help one feel grounded and enlightened.

This crystal is a combination of both the energy of Black Tourmaline and the strong vibration of Clear quartz crystal, which amplifies the powerfully shielding Tourmaline energy. Just like Black Tourmaline, Tourmaline Quartz stones have strong spiritual grounding energy as well as being potent psychic protection stones.

It is believed that the earliest primitive tools created by man are made of Tourmaline Quartz which dates back to 2.5 million years ago. Geologists discovered these tools in the Omo Valley in Ethiopia and were fashioned by Hominids.

Black Tourmaline aids in the removal of negativity, anger, and worries from oneself and one's environment. It safeguards your energy field against attachments and debris. The Root chakra is related with Black Tourmaline. It is known as an energy vacuum cleaner. 

Black Tourmaline is a stone of purification, cleansing the emotional body of negative thoughts, anxiety, stress, anger or feelings of unworthiness. It is believed to soothe panic attacks; it will bring you back to earth and connect you to your Root chakra.

A powerful crystal when working with chakras, balancing the body from Crown to Root. Its strong grounding energies is great to ground you after a healing session or meditation.

Black Tourmaline is an absolute must-have in your crystal and self-care repertoire. It aids empathetic persons in establishing energy boundaries. You may utilize Tourmaline to build an energy forcefield of protection by carrying it with you on a regular basis, storing it at your front entrance, or gridding your house by placing one in each corner of a room! One thing we like to do is scatter crushed Tourmaline around the perimeter of our area as a protective barrier.

A stone associated with the planet Saturn in astrology, it was once used by magicians to offer them protection against earth demons when they were casting spells. In the modern world it is said to dispel and shield the wearer / carrier from external negative energies and internal conflicts.

We need all of the protection and grounding we can get, especially right now. Wear some Tourmaline and protect your energy field no matter what you're doing in the world right now!
