The only challenge is keeping up with them - they go 100km/hr bouncing off the ceiling dragging you with them, if you’re willing to go.

Leos are like royalty. They like to be doted on and fussed over. They have an innate ability to shine (like the Sun) and show everyone their achievements. It is very important for them to be recognised and adored. They lap up all the attention like a sponge.

If they are lacking of compliments and attention for their efforts, they can become extremely unhappy.

Libra - Air - Cardinal - Ruled by Venus

To keep a Libran happy create a calm balanced peaceful life for them. But as we all know true peace comes from within, not outside. However we can create a peaceful family life, for our little Librian children. It is important, as their character craves balances and harmony in their lives. They are the ones who seems so soft spoken and kind, yet can truly be a nervous wreck deep down inside. As children and as adults throughout their lives they have a deep inner tension. Tension which can be triggered by anyone in their lives who may be out of sorts. Disliking confrontation, they will manipulate situations or even lie to try and keep the peace. Beauty, love and harmony fills their heart with joy.

Aquarius - Air - Fixed - Ruled by Uranus
January 20th - February 18th
You will fail if you come into an Aquarians life and try and change them. Most of their life is spent creating things exactly the way they want them. They work hard at creating their own peace and quiet, and are usually loners. Aquarians are also honest and caring (not as serious as their fellow Capricorn). Somewhat eccentric and won’t conform to rules, they make their own. Authentic and carefree, what you see is what you get.

Pisces - Water - Mutable - Ruled by Neptune
February 19th - March 20th
Last but not least of the signs, Pisceans have big hearts, are kind, and make good friends. Their symbol of two fish swimming against each other is their life struggle. It means within them they have two opposing opinions. Usually their downfall is yours as well as they may play the victim and it can be portrayed as your fault. Can have addictive characteristics due to those opposing voices within them. Water signs have a tendency to be a little wishy-washy. To thrive they need to let go of all ego, follow a mystical and spiritual life, taking advantage of their psychic abilities.

A Natal Chart represents the position of planets at the time of birth.
Most people know there are 12 signs in the zodiac. If you think of a pie chart divided into 12, the planets each sit within the space of one particular zodiac sign at one particular time. A Natal Chart shows this positioning at the time of our birth.
Each planet is considered to rule a zodiac sign, this does not change. This relationship gives the zodiac sign some of it’s natural characteristics.
These relationships between the zodiac signs and planets, are what we discuss during a Natal Chart reading.
More about The Planets here.
The houses in an astrology chart help describe where in your life, the signs and planets are playing their roles. When your natal chart has one planet or more in either one of the houses, it gives the Astrologer more insight. This will all make more sense once you read what each house represents.
