Psychic Abilities in Astrology
There are quite a few different psychic abilities!
Generally speaking, people who have psychic abilities are able to notice things hidden beneath the surface.
It is important to remember that astrology and psychic abilities are two separate terms. Astrology is a system that translates the language of the stars and you need absolutely no intuition to learn astrology.
Psychic abilities, on the other hand, are subjective. Here you use your intuition and sensitivity to receive information about a question. This is a gift that your soul has. Even though the general public often uses these terms intertwined, astrology and psychics are two different things.
Can you tell if someone is a psychic using astrology? Yes, you can!
How to see if you have psychic abilities in your natal chart?
There are some placements for psychic abilities that suggest an above-average intuition. In this article, you can learn what to look to in the chart to find out more about psychic abilities in astrology.
Some of the things to look to in the birth chart:
- the Moon in water signs or in water houses
- a strong Moon and Neptune in the birth chart
- emphasized twelfth and eighth houses
- a lot of water in the natal chart
- outer planets in contact with the Sun, Moon, ascendant
It is very important that you must read the chart as a whole. Your natal chart is complex and the most important information is usually reinforced multiple times in it. Placements only make sense when seen as a part of the whole chart rather than when read as an isolated unit.
What Are Psychic Abilities?
But first of all, what are psychic abilities?
According to Wikipedia,
A psychic is a person who claims to use extrasensory perception (ESP) to identify information hidden from the normal senses, particularly involving telepathy or clairvoyance.
Some of the different psychic abilities include clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairsentience, claircognizance. Clair skills make you just know things, without having a scientific reason for knowing them.
People who possess psychic powers are usually very sensitive. They need a lot of time alone, because they easily become overwhelmed with the noise of the world.
If you want to develop your psychic abilities, it is very important to cut out negativity from your life. Because of this enhanced sensitivity, it’s essential to surround yourself with people who radiate positive energy and love.
There are many different psychic abilities, and not everyone possesses all of them. In case you want to learn more about this topic, here’s a list of different psychic abilities on Wikipedia.
Indicators of Psychic Ability in the Birth Chart
There are some placements of planets both by signs and houses that are indicators of psychic abilities in astrology. The more you have of the following placements in your natal chart, the stronger your psychic powers are.
Most people have spiritual gifts, but the vast majority is not aware of them. Developing your psychic powers takes time and effort, but it can lead to a better relationship with yourself and a stronger connection with your higher self.
Looking for talents in the birth chart is always fun, so here’s how to find out if you have psychic abilities in astrology!
Zodiac Psychic Powers: These Signs Are The Most Likely To Possess Them
There are some zodiac signs that are more likely to possess psychic powers than most. However, all twelve zodiac signs can have psychic abilities unique to them. Finding your signature sign can be helpful to find which element stands out in your birth chart.
Usually, the signs connected with psychic gifts in astrology are water signs. The element water is a subtle, adaptable, sensitive. Water can take up any shape and it can get through spaces where other elements cannot. A lot of water in the natal chart can be a sign that you might be a psychic.
In astrology, water signs include Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces.
Cancer Psychic Abilities in Astrology
If Cancer is strong in your chart, you are sensitive and receptive to the energy of your environment. Cancer is the zodiac sign traditionally associated with the Moon in astrology. You will see in a minute why is this important.
Cancer is connected with very strong gut feelings: you simply know things, no matter how irrational something seems to those around you (and usually, you are right!). You have a strong and clear inner voice that tells you what path to follow.
Several planets in Cancer make it easy for you to tap into your psychic abilities.
Scorpio Psychic Abilities in Astrology
Scorpio is the sign traditionally associated with the eighth house and Pluto. Scorpio psychic abilities are usually powerful and piercing.
You see people differently: you are able to notice tiny clues and energy changes in their behavior. Scorpio is the detective of the Zodiac. People with placements in this sign are intuitive, investigative, and impossible to lie to.
Pisces Psychic Abilities in Astrology
Pisces is the sign of the psychic. This zodiac sign is so connected with the subconscious that it almost feels more familiar to it than the real world! The Pisces psychic abilities are unmatched.
The higher manifestation of Pisces is all about spirituality and unconditional love. So strongly connected with the universe, the zodiac sign Pisces can be a visionary.
People who have this sign strong in their charts are incredibly intuitive. They often receive insight through dreams. Artistic inspiration is also a way they can connect with the wisdom of the collective unconscious. Pisces psychics often experience synesthesia.
Houses as Psychic Indicators
There are twelve houses in the natal chart. Some of these houses are more important when it comes to psychic abilities in astrology.
The most important houses from this point of view are:
- the fourth house (the natural house of Cancer)
- the eighth house (the natural house of Scorpio)
- and the twelfth house (the natural house of Pisces).
The fourth, eighth, and twelfth houses are so-called water houses. In the natural chart, they are the houses of water signs. (Of course, in your personal natal chart, it doesn’t have to be that these signs are on their cusps, respectively. How the signs are located is completely unique in your natal chart.)
Planets in these houses are frequent indicators of psychic ability in the birth chart. You should pay attention to any planet in these houses, especially in the eighth and in the twelfth:
Planets in the Eighth House and Psychic Ability
In the natal chart, the eighth house is traditionally associated with Scorpio. As such, this house is all about digging deep and finding things under the surface. The eighth house is the gate of the underworld, governing death, birth, rebirth, near-death experiences. This house is all about transformation in astrology.
Secrets and mysteries are frequent keywords of the eighth house in astrology.
People who have several planets in the eighth house are usually drawn to the occult. They love secrets and love learning about topics such as the occult, magic, psychology, life after death.
If you want to understand the eighth house better, you should definitely check out this article. It covers all the life areas this house governs and also why is it important in astrology. The eighth house is a mysterious and complex, but also beautiful house.
Planets in the Twelfth House and Psychic Ability
Another very important indicator of psychic abilities in the birth chart is having planets in the twelfth house.
The twelfth house is traditionally connected with Pisces. Pisces is the most mystical and otherworldly sign in the Zodiac. People who have this sign strong in their birth charts are extremely sensitive and have a very strong intuition.
In the natal chart, this house is connected with the collective unconscious, spirituality, inspiration, and secrets.
Twelfth house placements in the natal chart make you sensitive and intuitive. Spiritual gifts are frequent among people with planets in the twelfth house. However, when not integrated well, the twelfth house can lead to addictions and escapism. It is important to stay grounded.
Psychic Talent Planets in Astrology
Now that you know which houses you should look to in your birth chart, let’s move on to the planets!
There are ten planets in astrology (of course, the Sun and the Moon are not planets, but for the sake of simplicity, they are referred to as such). However, not all the ten planets are equally important for psychic powers in astrology.
The Moon and Psychic Abilities
In astrology, the Moon is one of the most important planets. This luminary rules the personal unconscious, your early upbringing, your mood, habits, instincts. In the birth chart, the Moon shows your intuition.
The Moon is the polar opposite of the Sun: the Sun is the active or masculine and the Moon is feminine or receptive principle (note that this has nothing to do with genders). The Moon rules the domain of emotions and intuition―as such, the Moon and psychic abilities are strongly intertwined!
The Moon can be a powerful indicator of psychic power in the birth chart. When analyzing this luminary, its house, zodiac sign, and aspects are all important.
Some of the placements that show psychic powers:
- Moon in the 8th house
- Moon in the 9th house
- Moon in the 12th house (powerful dreams, sometimes even prophetic)
- Moon conjunct MC or the ascendant
- Moon in water signs
- harmonious aspects between the Moon and Neptune/Uranus/Jupiter
The Moon in water houses is a powerful psychic ability indicator.
If you have your Moon in the eighth house or in the twelfth house in your natal chart, this placement suggests a strong intuition. It makes you very sensitive to the energies of others, and you can easily receive information from your higher self. The Moon in the twelfth house is a particularly strong placement for psychic abilities. You often receive information through your dreams.
The ninth house is not a water house, but the Moon here is also an indicator of psychic talent in astrology. It is in the natural house of Jupiter here, and you will see later why is this important. A natal Moon in the ninth house suggests that there is a strong bond between you and your higher self.
The Moon is signs can emphasize psychic talent in astrology, too. As always with psychic abilities, the Moon in water signs is particularly powerful. The best signs are Cancer and Pisces Moon for psychic ability in astrology. The Moon is exalted in Taurus, which is also great placement.
A prominent Moon in the natal chart makes you emotional, sensitive, intuitive, and it often indicates artistic talent.

Neptune and Psychic Abilities
Another planet important for psychic abilities in the natal chart is the outer planet Neptune. You will see why in a moment.
Neptune is the ruling planet of Pisces. As such, it is strongly connected with all things mystical and spiritual. In astrology, Neptune rules:
- unconditional love
- divine inspiration
With Neptune, its aspects and how you use its energy become particularly important. This planet can make you a visionary, but it can also lead to escapism and addictions. Neptune rules unconditional love, but it also rules drugs and alcohol. As an outer planet, it can be quite challenging when out of control.
When you live the higher manifestation of Neptune, you are an idealist and you believe in a better world. Neptune is one of the strongest psychic talent indicators in astrology when it is well-aspected and well-integrated in the natal chart.
Some of the placements and aspects that are indicators of psychic abilities in astrology:
- Neptune conjunct MC
- Neptune conjunct the ascendant
- Neptune conjunct the Sun or the Moon (trines and sextiles as well)
- Neptune in the 8th house
- Neptune in the 9th house
- Neptune in the 12th house
When talking about outer planets (Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto), their position by houses is more important than by signs. Because they spend several years in each zodiac sign, outer planets by sign have a generational influence rather than a personal.
The overall condition of Neptune in the birth chart is important. This planet can be both a blessing and a curse: it can make you a visionary, but too much of Neptune can make you loose touch with the world.

Jupiter and Psychic Abilities
Jupiter is the ruling planet of Sagittarius in astrology, and it is in accidental dignity in the ninth house. This house is connected with learning, spirituality, the higher self among other things. Planets in the ninth house suggest an interest in spirituality and in finding the meaning of life. The Moon or Neptune here can indicate psychic talent.
Jupiter is the planet of expansion in astrology. Jupiter can expand your psychic abilities, to: when this planet is in contact with the Moon or Neptune, it enhances your intuition.
Some placements of Jupiter that are indicators of psychic ability in the natal chart:
- Jupiter in the 8th house
- Jupiter in the 9th house
- Jupiter in the 12th house
- Jupiter conjunct the Sun
- Jupiter conjunct the Moon
- Jupiter trine Neptune
- Jupiter trine Moon
Jupiter is an extremely beneficial planet, bringing abundance and good luck. However, in regards of psychic abilities, the Moon and Neptune are the biggest influences.

These aspects in the natal chart will help you find your psychic abilities in astrology.
To see if you have psychic talent, you have to analyze the relationship between the planets mentioned above. The nature of the aspect is also important.
In this case, trines and sextiles are the best―generally speaking, they are associated with gifts and talents. These are harmonious aspects that suggest an easy flow of energy.
The conjunction (when two or more planets are next to each other, usually within an orb of 6-8 degrees) between some planets can be great, too.
When talking about such a sensitive topic as psychic powers in astrology, it is important to look at the chart as a whole. Aspects play a particularly important role in the dynamics of the birth chart, and planetary rulership is also important.
