We Had An Astrologer Guess Our Birth Charts

💅🔮✨

Posted on
Alice Yoo / BuzzFeed

For as long as I can remember, I've loved astrology. Whether you're a believer or not, I just think astrology can help people get out of their comfort zones and look at themselves and their relationships from a different perspective.

We TV

So for a lil' experiment, I got my coworkers together — believers and non-believers alike — and had my friend and astrologer Aliza Kelly come in and ~read~ us.

instagram.com

Aliza is a practicing astrologer, author, and columnist. She's also a Leo KWEEN and we're obsessed with her!!!!!!!!!!

Only, there was a catch: We wouldn't show her our birth charts beforehand. So basically, she would just have to go off of her astrological intuition. 💁✨

Identity

So right now you may be wondering, the fuq is a "reading" and the FUQ is a "birth chart"?

Well, an astrological birth chart (also called a natal chart) is a map that reveals where the stars and planets were aligned the moment you were born. According to astrological beliefs, the placement of the planets affects your personality, life's mission, and overall challenges.A reading is where you sit down with an astrologer and they explain what your chart actually means.To do your own chart, all you need is your birthdate, time, and location. Then go to astro.com and plug in all the info, and the site will generate your birth chart for you!

Before the session, Aliza came up with some questions that she felt would be telling of each person's chart. She'd have a 15-minute conversation with each person and say what planetary aspects she suspected were in their chart, and then we'd compare her answers with their actual birth chart. Got all that?

AK: I definitely sensed some type of Mercurial influence from Kevin when he talked about being really aware and thoughtful with the risks he takes in his life. The fact that his opinions on things change depending on circumstance is very, very Gemini to me.

AK: The first thing I noticed about Kevin was that he was super nice and effortlessly cool. Obviously, I was terrified. Gemini energy is sociable and adaptable, but as the first air sign, definitely has its finger on the pulse. His Gemini sun was a no-brainer.

AK: At first glance, Nora's not a risk-taker. HOWEVER, the fact that Nora said she wanted to be famous was a huge plot twist! I definitely felt some homey, Cancer energy from her, so there's definitely some sort of Cancer or Capricorn in her chart. Still, she definitely has some fire which gave her the confidence to answer the questions as decidedly as she did. Maybe some Virgo, too.

AK: When answering my questions, Nora made it very clear that she didn't want me to read her as some wild party girl. However, even though her answers to my questions were more prudent, she was delivering her responses with a strong confidence — and a dynamic sense of humor! I guessed a strong earth and fire combination, so I wasn't at all surprised by her Sag sun and Capricorn stellium.

AK: I'd say there's definitely some Scorpio energy with Andrew. Scorpio energy is very protective and secretive, and makes him sort of guarded or skeptical with of a lot of things.

Usually, elusiveness is associated with the water signs, especially Scorpio. I was sure he had some Scorpio energy in his chart, so his Scorpio Mars (the planet at home in its traditional rulership) made perfect sense.

LY: Yeah, but I guess I'd just like to leave an impression. I want to do something great, and I want to feel accepted and liked, so I guess that's kinda like famous...?

AK: Your general approach to life is to: a) Think before you leap, or b) Leap before you think?

LY: I kinda go back and forth on that one...I overthink a lot, but overall, I guess I leap before thinking. Or maybe I would think...? (Groans.) I guess I'd want to be someone who leaps, but I really think.


AK: You're very protective of: a) Your secrets/private life, b) Your image, or c) Your community

LY: My community.


AK: Success means: a) Money, b) Recognition, c) Family, or d) Relaxation

LY: I think success would be creating a family and having love...just like, being around people you love. And good food and good wine, too!

AK: The fastest way to your heart is: a) Food, b) Sex, c) Intelligence, d) Humor, or e) Looks

LY: Humor for sure.

AK: With Lauren, there seems to be a lot of earth and water energy. She's very sensitive but very rational at the same time.

Alice Yoo / BuzzFeed

AK: Lauren has an extremely sensitive, intuitive spirit — but she's also extremely grounded and rational. After having a very meaningful conversation about life, death, and everything in between, her combined earth and water energy was clear.

AK: There's definitely a LOT of Pisces energy is Syd's chart because she's emotional and very intuitive. She's also really childlike, so I might guess there's some sort of Aries or other fire energy at play. I still think the most prominent energy with Syd is Pisces though.

AK: Syd is a tried-and-true fiery Aries (she was even wearing overalls like a lil bb gurl!), but she exudes incredible depth and empathy. Her Pisces energy is very strong. Upon looking at her chart, I noticed that — in addition to her sensitive Pisces Mercury — the vast majority of her planets are in her twelfth house, which is associated with the psychic realm. Duh!

Kevin

My thoughts and emotions were pretty clear, and there was a sense of affirmation because she described a lot of characteristics that I do actually have. Also, I mentioned to Aliza that I have a very powerful sense of smell and she told me that it probably means that I can SMELL ghosts. LOL!

Nora

As I was answering the questions, Aliza basically knew what my answers would be, so I thought that was so cool. She told me I had a lot of Capricorn energy, which ended up being right. Even crazier, I was actually born two weeks premature, so if I was born on my actual due date, I would be a Capricorn!

Matt

I was nervous! I'm low-key obsessed with astrology and already knew my chart, but getting a reading can be oddly vulnerable. It's too real sometimes!!

Jen

One of my first jobs as a writer was to literally make up horoscopes for a magazine, so I’ve always been a pretty big skeptic about astrology and stuff. So I kind of just went in there for the fun of it, but didn’t think much about it. But with Aliza, everything she said about me pretty much described my personality to a T? So I was definitely feeling surprised.

I felt both nervous and skeptical going into this. I had no idea what to expect. I have to say it wasn't as uncomfortable as I thought it would be, LOL. I enjoyed it a lot.

Ryan

I think her reading of me as a person was right. She said, "be nice," as I left, so I took that as advice. I liked that it was like sitting with a friend, talking, rather than some inaccessible, mystical woman with a crystal ball. In the short time, she really got to know you and made the experience really conversational.

Lauren

Aliza mentioned that I need some "fire" in my life, specifically spicy foods. My whole life I've been sensitive to spicy foods, but my girlfriend has been trying to help me expand my palette and enjoy new flavors. I took that as a sign that I should just open up my taste buds to more things and let my girlfriend have this moment to shine! In the end, even if you don't believe in star stuff and astrology, I think it's still very possible to become more aware of yourself through these readings and to think more introspectively about who you are and how you react to things.

Aliza pretty much recognized my internal conflict with instinct versus emotion right off the bat. I actually felt so ~seen~ in the process that I teared up a little!!! There really is something so vulnerable and refreshing about astrology that brings out the truth in people.
