In astrology-related articles, we speak a lot about the planets, and their influence in people (which is the basis of the astrology teachings), and it is common in a way that the planet Saturn means restrictions in character for example, while Jupiter implies an expansion, and the planet Mars is connected with the conflicts and rage. And these general characteristics can be applied and seen in the personalities of certain persons who are under their influence or are under the combined influence. When we are examining the exact position of the planets in our natal chart, we must know the precise locations of the planets at the moment of our birth.
However, some astrologers claim that looking into the planets is more a form of worship, a mixture of occult and science, but that more of that occult aspect is present than the scientific element. People like to understand them since we know that those celestial bodies are there and that they affect the planet Earth on which we live on, but are also so unreachable; since all the Universe is connected, so we are all connected, people and planets especially.
The effect of the planets on Earth and the people are certain, and the role of the astrologers is to help us understand that connection, that is even primordial and definite. When we understand that influence, when those planets are moving we can find out what could potentially happen to us in the future, close or distant. We can even project our desires and needs into the Cosmos, with the firm belief that our voice will be heard.
And at the end of this intro section, we must say one more obvious thing –every astrologer will ask you before they tell you anything else about your horoscope, future or destiny is when is your birthday? So, our date of birth is very important, and we will start this story by examining the birthdate April 8 and its entire characteristic along with the history reminder on the events that occurred on that day.
Personality and Character
