What is a Natal Chart?
Decans are a fantabulous way of explaining why people of the same sign are so incredibly different, especially twins. When it comes to looking at twins birth charts, this can explain explain why they are so different.
A decan or decanate is a division of each of the signs into three equal segments of 10° each. There are 12 signs at 30 ° each. 12 signs x 30 degrees = 360° (a wheel).
There are 30° in each sign, and each Sun Sign is divided into 3 equal parts of 10°, which means there are 3 decans in each house, so each decan is 10°.
The first 10° of any sign is said to be of the nature of the sign itself, ruled by its natural ruling planet; the second 10° decanate is of the nature of the next sign of the same element; and the third has the nature of the remaining sign of that element.
The elements meaning - air, earth, fire and water.
The Decans are said to be more applicable to the Ascending/Rising Sign (1st house cusp) than any of the other 11 houses. When you study yourself, you will see that you actually do take on the energy of the planet that reflects the degree of a particular house cusp. (See chart below) This has been my experience when studying the patterns of thousands of charts I have written.
It is important to remember the "triplicities" (3 signs) of the elements (air, earth, fire and water). That would be the air signs (Aquarius, Gemini and Libra), the earth signs (Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn), the fire signs (Aries, Leo and Sagittarius) and the water signs (Pisces, Cancer and Scorpio).
If I wrote your Expansive Natal Chart then I included a Decan Natal Chart Wheel in your Chart Configurations and Graphics file on page 4. It is the rainbow colored chart wheel. I also point out each decanate ruler for each house in your Expansive Natal Chart Details under the section called, "Chart Points" which reflects the planetary influences on your Decan Natal Chart Wheel.
Notice from the chart below that each decan is in the same triplicity (air, earth, fire or water) and they appear in the same order that they appear on a chart wheel. Click the link below to see a sample of a Decan Natal Chart Wheel that I include in all Expansive Natal Chart orders.
I included three different Decan Chart Wheels in this link for you to look at so you can see as time ticks along another 10° comes into play. You will see a chart for 9:00 AM, 10:00 AM and 11:00 AM.
