The birth chart places you in a moment of time. Is this a moment that we both qualify for, and agree to, before we are born? This intriguing idea comes by way of the Pleiadians in Barbara Marciniak's book, Path to Empowerment: subtitled, Pleiadian Wisdom for a World in Chaos.
They say (via Barbara Marciniak): "The sky is a map of knowledge, and each moment in time carries an energetic imprint, or outline, or its presence that is unique unto itself, like a footprint left in sand." The Pleiadians say we qualify for a time of birth, just like we do for particular jobs. They say, "Some moments are more auspicious than others, and the proper credentials on your spiritual resume must be present in order to fit with the prevailing energies."
Seen through that perspective, the fixed moment in time of the birth chart is a spiritual anchor. It's a map to what you intended for this life. The Pleiadians say, "Once you are born into this physical reality, you unfold your life within an imprint of cosmic energy that embodies a plan of intent and purpose, a plan designed and approved by you."
This makes the birth chart a very useful tool to suss out all the dimensions of your life's purpose. In a time when it's critical to discover and put into action your divine power, it's the map full of clues that gets you there.
