Betsy discovered that her natal chart delves more than her Sun sign. So she’s making sure that she’s on top of the upcoming astrological changes.

There was a time that I believed my Sun sign was the only thing it should mattered when I read my horoscopes online and on print. Heck, I remember obsessing over the horoscopes section when I was a subscriber to YM Magazine (*cough* thanks Mom & Dad for letting me read them back in the 1990s).
I discovered my natal chart around 2015. Holy cow, it blew my mind that there were other aspects in my chart that I never realized it existed. Things like knowing your Moon sign, your Rising sign, Venus, Mars, Mercury, etc. It answered my questions as to why I didn’t really feel like a “true Taurus to the core” when I’ve exhibited some more fiery aspects of my personality (in this case, both my Venus and Mercury signs are in Aries).
While I don’t consider myself an astrology expert, I can tell you that there are numerous resources available on learning astrology. I highly recommend checking out Theresa Reed (a.k.a the Tarot Lady) on her Star School section where she delves into astrology that’s perfect for beginners. She also released her new book, Astrology for Real Life, where she provides a no-nonsense guide on discovering your natal chart, understanding the retrogrades in various planets, and much more.
If you’re looking for apps that you want to keep track on the astrological transits, here are my recommendations below:
Time Passages (iOS only; there’s a free and paid version).
Co-Star Astrology (iOS only; free to use).
Sanctuary Astrology (iOS only; free to use; in-app purchases).
Please note that I do not have an Android phone at hand, so if you want to sound off the recommendations on which astrology apps are worth checking out, let me know in the comments below.
