How to Obtain a Natal Chart

In order to begin, you'll need a copy of your natal chart. If you don't have one already, follow these steps to obtain your chart.

  • Visit astro.com.

  • In the top navigation, go to Free Horoscopes. From the dropdown menu choose "Extended Chart Selection."

  • You can set up an account or go to straight to the data entry page if you don't want to save your chart. On the data entry page, enter your name (this part doesn't matter), birthdate, exact birth time, and location. It also prompts you to enter a gender. It's okay to select event/other if you don't identify with male or female, but if you want to look at the auto-generated descriptions they provide you'll have to choose one (boo).

  • This part is important: On the extended chart selection page, in the "Options for zodiac and houses" section choose "whole signs" as the house system. If you are comfortable with another house system, go with what you wish, but I will be explaining the exercises under the assumption that you are using whole signs houses like I do.

  • Click the button to show your chart. Ideally, print off a copy and save it for future reference!

  • Once you have a copy of your natal chart, learn if you have a Day chart or a Night chart with these instructions.

  • CENTAURS AND ASTEROIDS: If you’d like to see where centaurs and asteroids are at in your chart navigate to “Extended Chart Selection” using the instructions above. Scroll to the bottom of page and expand “Additional Objects.” On the left-hand side you’ll see a list of asteroids. The ones I typically work with are: Chiron, Ceres, Pallas, Juno, Vesta, Pholus, Nessus, and Ixion.
