Twin flame birth charts: Everything you need to know (complete guide)

By now, you’ve probably realized that twin flames are the most intense spiritual connection that you can experience in this lifetime — and possibly also the most complex.

How are you supposed to navigate a relationship with so many intricacies? If only there was a map that could guide you.

Well, actually, astrology provides us with exactly that! Whether you’re still hoping to connect with your twin flame, or trying to deal with turmoil in the relationship, looking at your twin flame birth charts can be your ultimate savior.

Read on to learn all about how you can use your twin flames to decode your twin flame relationship — and make it the best one ever.

What is a birth chart?

Birth charts, also called natal charts, are basically astrological charts that show how the sky looked at the moment and place you were born. They show you where all the planets were located, and also their location within the twelve houses (more on this in a bit).

Your birth chart depends very specifically on the exact position of all the astrological elements on it. Therefore, if two people were born in the same hospital on the same day, but a few hours apart, their birth charts can still look completely different.

So why is the sky at your birth significant?

Well, it all has to do with how astrology works. This is an ancient art which maps out all the energies of the cosmos. When we are born, we are imprinted with a “map” of the energies at that moment in time and the universe.

We carry these energies with us throughout our entire lives. They determine in great part our personalities, strengths, and development.

How does a birth chart help the twin flame journey?

If there’s one thing everyone can agree on, it’s that twin flames are incredibly complex.

Your twin flame journey and its unfolding depends on tons of different aspects that all come together.

In this case, your birth chart is like a map to your twin flame journey.

If you learn to decode it, it can reveal to you a myriad of significant things:

  • blocks in your life
  • your soul’s mission
  • obstacles you’ll face with your twin flame
  • how your relationship will unfold

To get the most accurate picture, you’ll need to put together the birth charts of both yourself and your twin flame.

But the true power of birth charts for twin flames?

It lies in helping you take a very close look at all the relevant parts of yourself and your mirror soul. These come into play to determine your twin flame experience, the obstacles you’ll come up against, and how you can overcome them to come together as one.

How to interpret your twin flame birth chart?

Now that you know how valuable birth charts are for your life and your twin flame, you’re probably dying to know what yours looks like.

How can you find out what the sky looked like at the precise moment and place you were born?

Actually, that’s the easiest part. Astrology birth charts can be easily generated by birth chart calculators. You’ll find tons of them for free online.

But here comes the real challenge.

Once you learn your chart of houses, planet placement, and planetary aspects, you still need to know how to interpret your birth chart.

We’ve packed this guide as full as we possibly could with everything you need to start making sense of your twin flame birth chart.

But here’s the sad truth — even with all the useful guidance you’ll read below, there are so many intricate details that it’s impossible to cover it all in a single guide. And even if it were, it’s still not possible to become an expert at twin flame birth charts from reading a single article (no matter how informative it may be).

And to make matters even more complicated, the stakes are incredibly high.

If you read your birth chart wrong, you could risk being led to making a terrible mistake in your relationship, or not even realizing who your twin flame is. You might let them just barely slip through your grasp, or make a decision that damages your twin flame connection beyond repair.

That’s why it’s best and simplest to rely on a professional who can tell you exactly what every element means and how to make sense of your twin flame birth chart.

The only problem? Finding someone you can trust.

That’s why I recommend Psychic Source. When I signed up for a reading, they provided me with a unique insight into my birth charts, including my compatibility with my twin flame.

Having tried several online advisors, I think they’re the most caring, compassionate and helpful network of gifted advisors out there.

What is on your birth chart?

Now that we’ve clarified what a birth chart is, let’s look at all the things you can find on yours.

The planets and celestial bodies

One of the most obvious aspects of your birth chart are the planets and celestial bodies. Our destinies are closely intertwined with the movement of these heavenly bodies.

Each planet in astrology has its own unique “personality” and governs over a different part of your life, from health to money and everything in between. Its location at the time of your birth, as well as at any given moment, will heavily affect you.

  • the Sun (self, ego)
  • the Moon (emotions, creativity)
  • Mercury (communication)
  • Venus (love, relationships)
  • Mars (action, physical drive/sex)
  • Jupiter (expansion, education, travel, luck)
  • Saturn (work, career)
  • Uranus (inspiration, technology, innovation)
  • Pluto (sex, regeneration, death/rebirth)
  • Neptune (altruism, the unconscious)
  • the minor planet Chiron (“The Wounded Healer” – emotional wounds)

The planets and their meaning are also highly relevant in your partner. Have you ever had a partner who you were constantly bubbly around and kept you talking a mile a minute, but then with your next partner you could hardly think of what to say?

This is in large part because of the way your different planets are interacting among each other, pulling or pushing on different aspects of your relationship that are then brought out or buried under the surface.

The nodes

In addition to the above, there are two more important parts of your birth chart that are not actual celestial bodies:

  • the North Node, where the moon’s orbit intersects with the northern ecliptic hemisphere. This deals with your soul development and fate”.
  • the South Node, where the moon’s orbit intersects with the southern ecliptic hemisphere. This represents your innate gifts and past life.

The twelve houses

So where are these planets, bodies, and nodes located on your birth chart? They can find themselves in one of twelve houses.

But what exactly are the twelve houses in astrology?

Basically, if you picture the sky as a wheel and cut it into 12 slices, each “slice” is a house. As the planets move throughout the sky, they move from house to house.

Like the planets, each house represent a key part of your life. If you look at a planet’s particular location in a certain house in your birth chart, you’ll have a combination of the planet’s meaning together with the meaning of the house it’s in. This can give you very valuable insights into your life.

For example, if Jupiter (the planet of luck) is in the 2nd house (ruling finances) when you were born, then you may have a very easy time with making money.

What are the twelve astrological houses of birth charts?

  • 1st house (your Rising sign or Ascendant): self, how others see you (ruled by Aries)
  • 2nd house: money, possessions, self-esteem (ruled by Taurus)
  • 3rd house: communication, intellect (ruled by Gemini)
  • 4th house: home and family (ruled by Cancer)
  • 5th house: romance, creativity, sex, drama (ruled by Leo)
  • 6th house: work, daily routine, physical health (ruled by Virgo)
  • 7th house: marriage and other partnerships (ruled by Libra)
  • 8th house: money, sex, death, birth (ruled by Scorpio)
  • 9th house: expansion, education, and travel (ruled by Sagittarius)
  • 10th house: purpose, career, ambition, responsibility (ruled by Capricorn)
  • 11th house: humanitarian concerns, technology, evolution (ruled by Aquarius)
  • 12th house: mental health, spirituality, imagination, arts, endings (ruled by Pisces)

Important astrological elements for twin flames

Though your twin flame birth chart will show all the astrological elements listed above, some are more relevant to twin flame connections than others. Here are the most significant planets on twin flame natal charts:

Most relevant planets for twin flame birth charts:

The Sun: its position in one of the 12 astrological signs, or zodiac signs, will reveal the identity and personality of each twin soul.

The sun in relation to the sun: The suns of you and your twin flame will tell you how your twin flame will raise your energy and vitality. This can make you stronger both as an individual and as a twin flame couple.

If your Suns are placed in the same element, it is a positive indication of harmony and common essence.

However, you don’t necessarily have to share the same Sun element with your twin flame. Sometimes twin flames can have opposite energies, but this is exactly what makes them “tick” so that they can become one whole together.

The Moon: this determines how each twin soul expresses their emotions in the relationship.

The Moon in relation to the Sun: The sun and the moon are natural complements, so together they mean stability and everlasting unity.

This is an incredibly important aspect for twin flame unions, and a clear sign of a long lasting twin flame relationship.

The attraction between you and your mirror soul will keep burning strong.

Venus: this planet is highly relevant for love. For women, it determines her expression of femininity. In men, it will indicate what kind of woman he is drawn to.

If you see Venus in the 2nd or 7th house, then you have a very high probability of forming a deep, harmonious bond with your twin soul. You will have high romantic compatibility, as well as passionate attraction.

Mars: this planet is connected to behavior, contributing to how twin flames will interact with each other

Saturn: it describes the karma of each twin soul, and the obstacles that you will have to overcome as a couple.

Jupiter: this planet reveals the good fortune of each twin soul, as well as the positive aspects of the twin flames when brought together.

It is also particularly telling for understanding between twin flames. If Jupiter is in the 5th or 7th house, you will experience immense progress in your relationship. Your connection will take on deep spiritual meaning.

Pluto: it reveals the spiritual journey that each twin flame will have to experience. This planet will reveal everything you must leave behind throughout the evolution of your relationship.

Most relevant houses for twin flame birth charts

To properly understand your twin flame connection, you need to have a look at your entire birth chart. All the houses have important messages and significance for your twin flame connection.

However, there is a special emphasis to what planets are found in these houses:

  • 2nd
  • 3rd
  • 4th
  • 5th
  • 7th
  • 8th
  • 12th

These will in large part determine your strengths and weaknesses as a twin flame couple.

The 12th house is considered particularly significant, as it is the house of divinity and ascension.

How do you read a birth chart – understanding planetary aspects

If you’re new to astrology, you might be scratching your head and wondering, but how am I supposed to read my birth chart? And what are these astrological “aspects” everyone’s going on about?

Basically, aspects refer to the angles that different planets form to each other on the zodiac wheel as they move through the sky. Looking at these is the key to making sense of your birth chart and what it means for you and your twin flame.

Each kind of angle, or aspect, means something different — but we’ll get to that in a moment.

First, let’s have a look at the major and minor aspects in birth charts and astrology.

Major aspects in birth charts and astrology:

  • conjunction: within 0 degrees or close to it
  • sextile: 60 degrees apart
  • square: 90 degrees apart
  • trine: 120 degrees apart
  • opposition: 180 degrees apart

Minor aspects in birth charts and astrology

  • Semisextile or duodecile: 30 degrees (1/2th of the 360 degree ecliptic)
  • Quincunx or quinduodecile or incojunct: 150 degrees (5/12th of the 360 degree ecliptic)
  • Quintile: 72 degrees (1/5th of the 360 degree ecliptic)
  • Sextile: about 51.43 degrees (1/6th of the 360 degreeecliptic)
  • Octile or semi square: 45 degrees (1/8th of the 360 degree ecliptic)
  • Novile: 40 degrees (1/9th of the 360 degree ecliptic)
  • Decile: 36 degrees (1/10th of the 360 degree ecliptic)
  • Undecile: 32.73 degrees (1/11th of the 360 degree ecliptic)
  • Semioctile: 22.5 degrees (1/16th of the 360 degree ecliptic)

Twin flame astrological aspects

When you learn to read your twin flame birth chart and the interactions between planets and houses on them, you’ll come to realize that some astrological aspects are much more positive than others.

These “soft” aspects are the most positive, with energies smoothly flowing together:

  • Trine – the most positive
  • Sextile
  • Conjunction – the closest and most intense

And these “hard” aspects are more challenging, with clashing energies:

  • Square – the most challenging
  • Semi-square
  • Opposition – this can mean a very close understanding of each other, yet in a challenging way

Twin flames tend to have tight conjunctions and trines among the most significant planets of their natal charts.

But always keep in mind:

This is not a black and white matter. It all depends on the planets that are involved as well as all the other factors at play in your birth chart. You could still end up with a helpful square, or a very unhelpful trine.

Can twin flames have negative astrological aspects?

Of course, harmonious aspects will make your relationship flow very nicely. But remember that twin flames tend to always have some challenging aspects.

So just because you see some hard aspects on your twin flame birth chart, it doesn’t mean it’s not really your mirror soul.

On the contrary! You and your twin soul are meant to learn from each other and push each other to grow in life. There’s no way for that to happen if everything was always sunshine and rainbows.

Want a quick and easy way to understand your twin flame birth charts?

Let’s be honest — twin flame birth charts are far from simple!

There are so many planets and houses to keep track of — not to mention all the aspects between them! It’s incredibly easy to get overwhelmed or lost — or even make a terrible mistake in interpreting your charts. This could lead you to make a bad decision you’ll regret for the rest of your life.

So why not avoid all this hassle and pain, and leave interpreting your birth charts up to a real professional?

Imagine having the key to your twin flame connection just handed to you — everything you need to know, 100% accurate and reliable.

Well, you can get all this at Psychic Source.

I mentioned them earlier. They have helped me out in the past and I’ve always found them honest and compassionate in their birth chart readings.

So instead of trying to decode your twin flame birth charts on your own, speak to an advisor who’ll give you all the answers you’re looking for.

What is a zodiac sign birth chart?

Your zodiac sign, or astrological sign, is determined only by the position of the sun in one of twelve zodiac signs, also called star signs or sun signs, at the moment you are born:

  • Capricorn (earth)
  • Aquarius (air)
  • Pisces (water)
  • Aries (fire)
  • Taurus (earth)
  • Gemini (air)
  • Cancer (water)
  • Leo (fire)
  • Virgo (earth)
  • Libra (air)
  • Scorpio (water)
  • Sagittarius (fire)

How do zodiac signs work in astrology?

Astrology tells us that two people with zodiac signs that have the same element, or complementary elements, can develop the deepest romantic bond. So for example, an air sign can get along very well with a fire sign, and earth signs are highly compatible with water.

But what about twin flames?

In most things, these kinds of connections are much more complex, and zodiac signs are no exception. In twin flame relationships, there can be many unlikely and even conventionally incompatible combinations of zodiac signs.

As twin flames are all about spiritual growth and fulfilling your divine purpose, perhaps you need someone who will challenge and test you as your twin flame in order to achieve that goal. These relationships are ultimately about harmony, but there can be a bit of a rocky path to get there.

Most compatible twin flame zodiac connections

As already mentioned, twin flames don’t always follow the same rules for zodiac compatibility. As incredibly intense, deep, and complex bonds, there can be tons of exceptions and unexpected combinations.

Even so, there are some matches that tend to form time and time again. Here are some of the most common twin flame zodiac connections:

  • Aries with Leo and Sagittarius
  • Taurus with Pisces, Scorpio, Virgo and Capricorn
  • Gemini with Aquarius, Sagittarius, Leo and Libra
  • Cancer with Virgo, Pisces, Libra and Scorpio
  • Leo with Gemini, Sagittarius, Aries, and Libra
  • Virgo with Taurus, Capricorn, Aquarius and Cancer
  • Libra with Cancer, Gemini and Leo
  • Scorpio with Pisces, Cancer and Taurus
  • Sagittarius with Aquarius, Gemini, Aries and Leo
  • Capricorn with Taurus and Virgo
  • Aquarius with Virgo, Gemini and Sagittarius
  • Pisces with Cancer, Taurus, and Scorpio

Can birth charts predict twin flames?

Twin flame charts can be immensely helpful in understanding your personality, difficulties, and life purpose. As mentioned above, natal charts can also give you a lot of relevant information about your twin flame connection and how the journey will unfold.

But just looking at your birth chart alone is not enough to confirm a twin flame connection.

A surefire way to know for sure is to speak with a gifted advisor at Psychic Source.

They can use the details in your birth chart, together with reading your vibrations and energies to give you an accurate picture of your twin flame situation.

More specifically, they’ll be able to answer questions like, is this really my twin flame? What phase are we at in the twin flame journey? What will our journey together look like? And how do I ensure it will be a happy and successful one?

Who wouldn’t like to have all this information at their fingertips?

You can have it all as soon as today.

So if you’re tired of wondering about what to do in your twin flame relationship, get in touch with a gifted advisor and take your future into your own hands. I did, and I’ve never looked back since.
