Astrology is an amazing tool for better understanding yourself, your friends, your planet, and the nature of Life itself. But how does astrology work? In HOUSES OF THE HOROSCOPE, Alan Oken explains that the natal horoscope is a blueprint and guide that creates a clear map to the self. He further explains how the positions of the astrological planets affect your life here on earth. Calculated for a person'¬?s date, time, and place of birth, the natal chart reveals a detailed portrait of an individual'¬?s relationship to the world. The various components of your natal horoscope reveal who you are, what you have to offer, and with whom you are most likely to share your talents, abilities, and love.
