A child’s natal chart is read much the same as an adult’s chart, but an additional and useful dimension can be added. While an adult’s chart is generally interpreted with insight and instructions directly for that adult to use in their own life, a child’s chart can be interpreted for the parent’s use, to allow the parent further insight into facets of their child’s personality and spirit that their child may not be able to adequately communicate yet since they are still developing.
For instance, if you know that your child has Mercury in Taurus, Virgo, or Capricorn, it’s useful to realize that this child will learn most easily through having something demonstrated to them and then having something where they can use their hands to really engage with what they are trying to learn (for instance, touching an object instead of just seeing a picture of it). This is a simple but powerful truth that can be leveraged to support your child’s learning in the best way possible.From the parent's point of view:
As parents today, we know it is not enough to just make sure our kids get a balanced meal and make it to school on time. We are very concerned about our child’s social, emotional and spiritual well being, not just physical and mental. How many parents have at least one child development book on our bookshelf? I bet the majority of us, including myself, would answer yes to that question.
If you have been to the bookstore and seen the massive child development section, you know it’s easy to be overwhelmed by all the methods and philosophies of raising healthy children. While there are many books that have good ideas, not all parenting philosophies are a good fit for every parent and most philosophies aren’t able to take in all the vast differences in the personalities and needs of one child from the next.
This is an area where astrology excels. Your child’s natal chart is a user’s manual to your child. It is a child development book written and published for one: your unique son or daughter.
