Learn to Read your Birth Chart

Sun-sign horoscopes in the newspapers and magazines can be both fun and enlightening. And the best ones often ring true, with insights that help you identify tendencies, talents, and gifts, so that you understand yourself a little better.

But your birth chart takes it a step further. The chart is like a super-horoscope geared not toward everyone who shares your birth sign, but specifically to you. It gives you an enlightening perspective on the strengths and weaknesses that you bring to the table in any situation.

birth charts for beginners - learn your way around the birth chart

Does this sound like you?

Are you a beginner struggling to learn how to read your birth chart? It can be so easy to tie yourself in knots trying to learn astrology. 

Without a system and a guide, learning to read birth charts can get really confusing. You may be working through different resources that you find online, looking up the symbols, but never really having it come together for you.

You may already be looking up placements in your birth chart, and you’ve realized that astrology is way more complex than most people think. You know how to analyze the chart and look up the details, but some of the interpretations you read seem to contradict one another. There are So Many Things, and you’re feeling overwhelmed. 


Maybe you even paid good money for an astrology course that left you to work through a mountain of information on your own, didn’t deliver your expectations or left you feeling out of your depth

You can do this! You just need someone to show you how to fit the pieces together and tell the story of the chart.

how to read a birth chart
  • Understand yourself and others in an objective yet soulful way.
  • Recognize opportunities for personal growth
  • Navigate life with more insight
  • Find and tell the WOW stories in the birth chart

Part 1: Meet the Planets

Nerd level: Mild. Meet the Planets guides you gently through the major themes of the birth chart, referencing the free Birth Charts for Beginners library, and adding to it with flashcards and formulas. When you finish Meet the Planets, you'll have the beginnings of a Book of You. You'll have what you need to read the essential symbols in any birth chart.

Part 2: Aspects Masterclass

Nerd level: Medium. Read the web of relationships between the planets, and tell the deeper stories of the chart. You'll learn to identify what I call the “guts” of the birth chart. You'll learn the geometry of astrology and in-depth fundamentals of aspect interpretation. With some practice, you can size up these connections quickly and efficiently. There are several examples and practice charts to get you up-to-speed with aspects. Four video classes, handouts, notes, formulas.

Part 3: Chart Synthesis Masterclass

Nerd level: Getting Spicy! Your studies up to now have given you the basic symbols and mechanics of the chart, and some basic interpretation skills. This course takes it a step further. Now the question is: How do you make sense of seemingly endless layers of information in the chart? Which planets do you look at? What’s most important in the chart? How do you pull it all together and make sense of what you're reading? You'll get a step-by-step, repeatable process to help you identify the most important features in the chart. You can then structure your readings around the most resonant themes in your client's life. Five video classes, handouts, notes, worksheets.

When you practice what you learn in Birth Chart Clarity, you’ll get “chart eyes.” I’ll help you break through “analysis paralysis” and get the fundamentals you need. So you can start doing the fun stuff you want to do, like forecasting, relationships, past lives, and lots more!

What will it be like to read birth charts with less confusion and more confidence?

Here’s what some of my students are saying…

Learning astrology can be confusing and overwhelming without a guide. I have been there. I remember spending hours in my little apartment, poring over a beginning astrology text from the 1970s… measuring my chart with a protractor… (how times have changed since then!!)

And then I started attending classes with my first teacher. 

This teacher spoke so plainly and clearly about astrology that the light came on for me. I could really see astrology for the “everyday miracle” it is. I want to pass that light on to you.

If you need help choosing the right package for you, or if you have a question before enrolling, please schedule a free 20-minute meeting.

What students are saying

What a labor of love! Step by step. I always got confused about which planets to look at and what was most important. You make it clear – Thank you!!!
I have taken another course on planetary aspects. I got the very basics of the meaning of aspects, but was left trying to figure out how to identify these aspects in an actual chart. Your explanations really helped me get a better understanding.
Learning from Molly is like a coffee chat with a caring person who truly wants to lift others up into the healing world of astrological knowledge.

A bit about me: Sometime in the mid 1990s, I started buying every beginning astrology book I could get my hands on. I was obsessed with learning about my astrological chart. Month after month, every spare moment went to looking up planets in signs, aspects, trying to find answers about my life.

I did find them. And the answers were far more insightful than I had ever imagined. 

I was hooked. I studied my chart, my friends’ charts, (the guy I had a crush on)… 

After a while, I got into my first astrology class. What an eye opener! My first teacher (a Taurus) brought the planets to life for me! He made astrology practical, relatable, and useful. And that’s what I want to do for you. Enroll in my online classes today and let’s get started together!
