Of course, if the special someone in your life isn’t a fan of reading their own cards, why not gift them an opportunity to have someone predict the future for them? Booking an astrology reading with a professional is a fun and interactive gift that is deeply personal. Natal chart readings have become very popular as astrology has acquired a more mainstream acceptance. What’s neat about natal chart readings is just how granular the experience can get. By providing the day, time, and location of one’s birth, the astrologer will be able to share patterns in their life, career, family, and personality traits that all ladder up to the placement of the sky at the exact moment they were born. The session includes a copy of the participant’s natal chart, and they are welcome to record the session so they can recall upcoming major life transits and the current themes and lessons affecting their world. Sessions are currently being held over Zoom and Skype, giving you more flexibility to gift someone — regardless of where they are in the world.
