What is a Twin Flame?
The term “Twin Flame” is most commonly used in spiritual, psychic, or mystic communities. The concept of a Twin Flame relationship refers to two beings who are inexplicably and spiritually linked. Unlike soul mates, the connection does not need to be romantic (however often is) and denotes an intense bond where people feel like they are two halves of the same whole.
Twin Flames will have a supercharged, almost cosmic connection. Feeling as if they have known each other forever even if they have only just met and shared the same passions, desires, and viewpoints.
The history behind Twin Flames is largely thought to have stemmed from Greek mythology. The famous Greek philosopher Plato is attributed with describing an early foray of the Gods into creating humans or Twin Flames. In their earliest form, they comprised of four arms, four legs, a single head with two faces, and two sets of genitalia. These original humans were considered to be becoming too powerful and the Gods chose to separate them. Once separated the individual flames were weakened with many being unable to eat or continue without their other halves. It is said that some were then re-attached but with fewer limbs and a single face to make the humans we recognize today.
The concept of Twin Flames or twin souls is seen in many religions and historical cultures including Ancient Egyptian, Viking, and Native American practices to name a few. The wording may change slightly, however, the premise remains similar, effectively that everyone has another kindred soul out there somewhere. Not everyone will meet their Twin Flame but those who do will benefit from the spiritual growth it affords.
What is a Birthday Twin?
While there is only one Twin Flame out there for each person, by comparison, we all have a plethora of Birthday Twins. The term “Birthday Twin” simply relates to anyone who shares the exact birthdate and month as yourself. It doesn’t need to be the same year.
The thinking that individuals who share the same birthday may have similar personalities or attributes is based on the principles of the zodiac signs associated with astrology.
There are alternative theories out there about specific links or a type of affinity that people born on the same day may experience. However, this is not thought to be as intense or special as that experienced by twin flames.
How do you find your Twin Flame by Birth Chart?
Finding that one soul out there in a whole world of people can feel pretty daunting. Maybe you’ve met someone that you think may be your twin flame but need a way to check. Interpreting your own birth chart and that of your potential twin flame can be a good place to start. Many people will offer services to review both your and your partner’s birth chart. However it is not a scientific or licensed field and it pays to be mindful about who you choose and how much cash you may decide to pay for such a service.
What is an Astrological Birth Chart?
An astrology birth chart is a map of how the sky looked at the time of your birth. It considers not just the date but both the precise moment and geographical location you were born to establish exact planetary and celestial alignments. Your birth chart shows you the positions of all major celestial bodies at your time of birth.
These are particularly important in terms of astrology and spirituality as the planetary positions are thought to have a significant impact on traits such as personality, likes, and dislikes.
Astrologers have been examining birth charts of partnerships or friends for years to gather pointers and guidance on the status of a relationship. While looking at a composite chart of two individuals could give insight into whether they are twin flames, most astrologers are clear “Twin Flames” are spiritual and beyond the realm of charts and figures. Rather it is an experience truly felt by the individuals involved.
It is advised that while “Twin Flames” may share aspects of celestial markers, it is very unlikely they would share the exact birth time and date. This is due to the main element of their intense relationship being that their traits complement and enhance each other, rather than that they are identical.
Twin Flame Birthday Calculator
A quick search online shows a myriad of Twin Flame or Twin Flame compatibility calculators. These claim to be able to calculate from a few details (name, date of birth) whether you and another individual are compatible or even truly twin flames.
The difficulty is these calculators are rarely very transparent and often will give conflicting responses. Loosely based on some aspects of astrology and numerology, there is no science to support their outcomes.
