Interpreting your childhood using a birth chart can help you better understand your present personality. To do this, you need to provide your exact birth details and know which aspects in your birth chart reveal about your childhood.
More often, you need to understand your past in order to explain your present behavior and personality. Your birth chart can help you do this by following these two simple steps in interpreting your childhood:
Provide your exact birth details
An accurate birth chart can be achieved when provided with the exact details it needs to use in interpreting your life. You need to give your exact date of birth, place of birth, and time of birth to attain this. These specific factors define the positions and movements of the planets at the exact moment of your birth, thus an explanation of your life, whether past, present, or future. The usual problem that goes with this first step is that you might not be able to point your exact time of birth as most people are not able to do so. This can, however, be solved by rectification, wherein the closest possible time of your birth is determined. Astrologers usually help you out with this by gathering the most important events in your life and plotting them in the critical points in your birth chart. Alternately, they may ask you for the estimated time of your birth, whether it was dawn, morning, noon, afternoon, dusk, or night time. When your birth chart is all set, you can now look for the aspects that will help you interpret your childhood.
Learn which aspects in your birth chart reveal your childhood
The birth chart has certain aspects that help determine the important points in your life. It helps identify the different personalities and abilities you might have, whether in your past life, your childhood, your present, or your future. These are the zodiacs, the planets, the houses, and the elements, among others. Even when you were once a child, your personality has been dominant according to your zodiac sign. If you are Leo, for example, you were probably once a loud kid who was always the center of attention. You always wanted to be heard and you must let everyone know what you want.
The houses in your birth chart also speak something of your childhood. The third house, which governs all communication and mental forms can say something about your early educational experiences as a child. The fourth house speaks of your home, family background, and your roots, which help you interpret your childhood. Finally, the fifth house, governs your childhood. It reveals how you expressed yourself as a child and how you tried to attain fulfillment and pleased yourself. This house governs your creative side, the games that you played, your past time, and the other fun activities you had.
Learning about your childhood does not only let you understand how you behave in the present. It also reveals how your own childhood reflects your treatment towards your own kids and other children. It can be the key towards healthy relationships with others and the key towards self-fulfillment.
