I've been reading and working through Sacred Contracts by Caroline Myss. One of the exercises in the book is to pick eight archetypes that apply to you in addition to the four survival archetypes that, according to this book, apply to everyone and then randomly cast them into the houses of the horoscope (it explains how to do that in the book). This is called your Chart of Origin. I so recommend trying this out. It adds another layer of understanding to your natal chart. Astrology can be very abstract, especially to beginners, and this helps to connect it to your life. It gives you personal images to work with instead of just general concepts.
