Astrology chart-makers and astrologer David T. MacLeod have been in the business of charting astrological charts since the 1970s.
He was instrumental in creating the first chart that tracks the moon, but the chart-maker’s work has since shifted to astrology.
In 2018, MacLeod released a new chart that charts the moon’s signs: the Sagittarius-Triangle Chart.
(You can read more about that chart here.)
“There’s a whole new generation of astrologists, many of whom are doing astrology as a science and as a profession,” MacLeod said.
“They want to know what their own planets look like, they want to see how the planets align with their personalities, and they want the Moon to be the best of all.”
He said that this chart-making and chart-finding process has helped astrologors to better understand the signs of the planets.
“Astrology is a lot more than just charting the stars and the planets,” he said.
And, as MacLeod pointed out, astrologing is also about charting people.
“There are people who really love charting, and there are people that really hate it,” he explained.
“The problem is you have to find the people who love chart-ing.”
Astrologer MacLeod and astrology chart makers often use astrolographic charts in conjunction with astrologie, which is an informal science of astrology, to describe how the Moon influences people.
(The astrology that MacLeod created for this chart was called the Moon and the Stars, and it was inspired by astrology charts that were made by German astrologist and mathematician Hans Jahn.)
Astrology charts are also used to help people understand the meaning of their own dates.
“You see astrology used to determine dates for weddings and funerals,” Macleods said.
The charts also help astrologians to better predict who will become a parent and for how long.
“It’s really helpful in helping you understand what the Moon is doing,” he continued.
“A lot of the time we don’t understand it.
We just think of it as a ‘sign of the zodiac,’ but the Moon does it all the time.”
And, astrology is also a tool for people who like to think about how the Earth moves around the Sun.
“When you’re watching the Earth move, it’s kind of like the Moon moving around the planets, and the Sun moves around our planet, so you get to see that from the Moon,” Maclieres said.
Astrology is often used to predict how a person’s body will move, and how it will look when they get older.
“So, the way a person moves in the future is really a reflection of their personality,” he added.
“I think a lot of people will start to think, ‘I wonder if my body is going to change,’ and it’s not a matter of looking at the Moon.
It’s a reflection on themselves.”
The chart-creation process is complicated, and astrologists often use a computerized analysis to understand their chart-building process.
“This is where a lot is done in the astrology community, so people are looking for algorithms,” Maclesons said.
In the end, Macleson said, astrologiologists do have a certain amount of confidence in the process, and he said they don’t believe that the chart they create will be the only one that’s used.
“We’ll see that people are going to create their own charts,” he joked.
“And the more people that use them, the more they’ll be able to use them.”
