What is an astrological natal chart

Look up in the sky! Its a bird! Its a Plain!Its…Its…Astrology! In astrology, your natal chart (sometimes called birthchart) is a graph that shows the positions of the planets and astrological houses in the sky at the moment of your birth. Your natal chart is much more detailed and accurate than your sunsign horoscope. A popular horoscope considers only the position of the Sun, whereas your natal chart includes hundreds of pieces of data. Your popular horoscope may hold some hints of truth, but your natal chart tells us the real story of your natural personality.

Analyzing the planetary positions and relationships in your natal chart affords a remarkably profound and revealing glimpse into your natural character, with its inherent strengths and weaknesses. Among other things, your natal chart will give you insight into:

  • A. what type of partner and relationship you seek and will be best matched with.
  • B. what type of job or career your natural strengths and weaknesses are best suited for.
  • C. obstacles that need to be overcome in your life.

Most importantly, your natal chart will help you to understand your desires, motivations, and why you are the way that you are.


For a natal chart to be accurate, we must know the exact positions of the stars at the exact moment of your birth. Since the houses of the zodiac revolve one degree every four minutes or less, an accurate time of birth is necessary to determine your Ascendant sign and some planetary aspects. Although you can generate a natal chart without these highly time-sensitive positions included, to have a more accurate chart you need those details. If you book a reading with me, I can bring up your chart, and we can party!

For example, you can have a Sun in Vergo, but your Moon could be in Gemini, and your Asendant could be Taurus, and Mercury in Leo, and on and on and on. These different mixes of energies create the unique person you are. despite what many people think, astrology does not box you in, rather, it shows you details about your indeviduel self. Astrology setsyou free by allowing you to become more conscious about all the possibilities that the creater has given you.

Astrology is not limited to natal. There is also electional, horary, mundane, medical, meteorological, Chinese 12 year and millennial.


Skeptics of Astrology often say that horoscope readings are so general they could apply to anyone; and that people will look for what they want to see and ignore what doesn’t seem true for them, thus deluding themselves that the horoscope is accurate.

This skepticism would most likely be eliminated if the skeptic actually looked at a real horoscope done by a competent professional astrologer, using his unique time and place of birth. Basically, if somebody tells you that they do not believe in astrology, most likely, they have never dove into it enough to actually know what they are talking about. Further more, astrology is not a belief system. It is a metaphysical tool that you can use to live a conscious life. I welcome you to the world of astrology!
