How Does A Natal Astrology Chart Work?

Understanding our horoscope can be an extremely complex endeavor for those not already somewhat well-versed in astrology. Luckily our natal chart is a perfect guide to learning all we need to know about our astrological makeup. The problem is that the natal chart can be a little daunting to interpret itself. So today we will go over what exactly our natal chart is, how to find out our natal chart, and what exactly everything on our natal chart means.

What Is a Natal Chart?

A natal chart, also know as a birth chart, is what our horoscope is. It is an astrological map of the sky on the exact moment of our birth. It shows where all the planets and zodiac are on our personal horoscope, along with the houses they fall upon (which we’ll get into in a bit).

The natal chartis what we use to get a complete reading of our astrological personality. While most people know what their Sun sign is, and maybe their moon if they are slightly interested in astrology, these are only two parts of our much greater whole. Each planet, and every single zodiac sign plays a part in our horoscope and it’s through that natal chart that we can find out what their placement means and how it effects our personality.

How Do I Find Out Natal Chart?

Nowadays there are plenty of websites and apps that will calculate our natal chart for us, and it’s a good thing to, as the alternative is not an easy task in the slightest. Most people recommend Astro Dienst which is also know as Once we’re there, click on “Natal Chart, Ascendant,” which is in the “Drawings and Calculations” section of the “Free Horoscope” tab.

Once we are at our natal chart calculator of choice it will ask us for some crucial pieces of information. Hopefully the date and location of birth will be the easy part, but knowing the exact time could prove difficult. While pretty much all birth chart calculators allow the option to forgo time of birth, doing so will omit crucial parts of our horoscope. The other complicated aspect of this is that even being so much as four minutes off can cause a tiny shift in the positioning of the stars, so the more accurate the time the better. That being said if we only know the hour, and are willing to accept that the results might be skewed, than some would say that’s better than nothing.

Reading the Natal Chart

After we’ve submitted our information we are gifted with a seemingly incomprehensible amalgamation of circles, lines, graphs, and symbols of various colors. This is because there is a lot of information to give, and all the information interacts with each other in a multitude of ways. To start, let’s go through some of the more important elements and explain them individually and then lead into how they interact and affect one another.


Thehouses might be the most important thing to understand regarding the natal chart, as they are the most static part of the chart which all other elements rotate around. The natal chart zodiac houses are the 12 sectors that split the majority of the chart into slices. We can tell which house is which based on the small numbers that are typically close to the center of the chart, although we can also memorize their location. The placement of the houses roughly represent the tilt of the earth itself at the exact moment a person is born, with one at left representing the east, and then ascending in a counterclockwise rotation. The reason that the cardinals are inverted is due to the fact that the most popular natal chart, the Placidus method, is made with the Sun’s perceived trajectory, or ecliptic going clockwise. This is because it is actually the earth that is rotating counterclockwise which is also why the houses go the same way.

Each house represents a different facet of our personality, in sequential order they roughly represent the following:

  1. Self
  2. Material Values
  3. Communication
  4. Home
  5. Creativity
  6. Health
  7. Relationships
  8. Change
  9. Ideology
  10. Ambition
  11. Friendship
  12. Secrets

The other parts of the natal chart will be categorized in one of the houses, and that will determine where that part of person’s personality will typically manifest.

The Zodiac Wheel

The zodiac wheel is probably the easiest element to identify on the natal chart. The zodiac also moves along the ecliptic and they each fall into a separate house. This means that all the zodiac play a part in making up who we are. The most important of these will be which zodiac is the ascendant, or rising sign. This is the zodiac that falls into the first house. Now, since the natal chart zodiac signs don’t exactly line up to the houses, the way to decide which sign falls into which house is based on where the line that starts that house falls. For the first house, the line (referred to as the Ascendant, or AC) will always fall to the left, or east. The first, fourth, seventh, and tenth, are the cardinal houses, so the zodiac and the planets (which we will talk about next) that fall into these houses are said to represent the core of our person.

Planets and Astrological Objects

The planets when referred to in astrology are the planets of our solar system along with the Sun and our moon. The various symbols across the chart represent the planets, occasionally with a few additional symbols to show extra astrological objects, like the comet Chiron. All the planets fall into the zodiac, and this how we get our typical star sign. If we look to see where the Sun falls on our particular zodiac wheel, it should match up with what we know our sign to be.

Planets also fall into the natal chart zodiac houses as well. So while the Sun sign may be, Virgo, for example, it’s possible that the Sun also falls into the eighth house which is why many astrologers will argue that the Sun sign fails to give a complete basis for a person’s self identity. The Sun does still play a major part in the formation of the self, it’s just that it only comprises about 1/3 of our natal chart self identity, with the other two being our moon sign which represents the inner self, and our rising sign which can be seen as the perceived identity of ourselves and the perceptions others have of us.

Like the Sun and moon, all the other planets also have signs associated with them, along with houses as well. While we’re first starting to interpret our natal chart zodiac signs it’s probably best to do it in multiple paired interpretations as opposed to a single three part one. Instead of forming a full interpretation combining the planet, zodiac, and house all at once what we would do is:

  • Planet+Zodiac interpretation
  • Planet+House interpretation
  • Zodiac+House interpretation

After doing each separate pairing, we can start to piece together the full meaning of the three in relation to one another.

Aspects and Elements

The last two parts of the natal chart are the elemental table, and aspects. All signs of the zodiac have an element associated with them, and the planets will take the element of the sign they are currently associated with. The Ascendant axis and Medio Coeli (MC), the axis of the tenth house, also take on the element of their sign. All signs also posses a quality: being balanced, fixed, or mutable, which the planets and aforementioned axes also take on. The element chart takes these and organizes them into a easily comprehendible graph. The elements and qualities that are most prevalent are said to be more dominant in a person’s astrological personality.

Aspects are the current relationships that exist between the planets (and still the AC and MC) at the time of our natal chart. They are based on the degrees of separation from one another and an aspect typically change every ten degrees, but hitting an exact degree in a particular aspect will often mean that it is boosted. There are a ton of aspects and both what they mean, and how that can affect the relationship of the two in the aspect depends on both the aspect itself, and the relationship that the planets and axes have to begin with. Aspects are the most complex part of the natal chart, with entire articles dedicated to them alone, but this brief overview should be enough to let us manage.

Now that we have a deeper grasp of what our natal chart truly means, we can dive into the complex maze that is ourselves in the pursuit of a more whole understanding. But be cautious. Don’t lose yourself in your astrological research. We as humans are so much more than just what the stars originally planned for us to be. Our natal chart should be used as a tool for self-refection, not as a guide we are meant to follow. Take what you learn from your natal chart as a supplement to the experiences you have in life, as we are the true guide when it comes to who we are.

Are Natal Charts Accurate?

The first question many people ask is, “Are natal charts accurate?” They are custom made horoscopes based on planetary positions, specific sub-periods, and the relationship between the planets in your astrological chart and those in your Natal chart. There are three major aspects to the natal chart that must be considered when creating your horoscope. The following discussion will focus on these three aspects:

A natal chart is the birth chart for an individual. They are created by noting important features of the sky and using weighting and shaping to determine their significance. While the scientific community considers astrology pseudoscience, there is a surprisingly small amount of statistical evidence linking natal birth charts to real world consequences. And while there is still a considerable amount of research and practice behind astrology, you should not be surprised to learn that the results of natal charts are highly accurate.

Although horoscopes are inaccurate, you should not dismiss them out of hand. There are some ways to determine your birth time. You can use a calculator to estimate your sunrise and sunset times. If you do not know your time, you can pay for a natal chart rectification by asking questions about your life. If you want to know the exact day and time of your birth, you can use a professional astrologer.

So, whether you want to become an artist, a musician, or an athlete, you should consult your natal chart.

Your natal chart is made up of your sun sign, moon sign, and rising sign. Each of these planetary aspects will influence different aspects of your life. For instance, if you have a Sun sign, you will have a higher chance of being a sportsperson. Your rising sign is the way you show yourself in the world. It is the first impression that people will see you. If your natal chart is accurate, you will have no problems in making important decisions.

The other important aspect of your natal chart is the Moon. You have two pairs of planets surrounding your ecliptic at birth, and the Moon will move its axis during an eclipse. The South Node represents past lives, karma, and patterns that you have mastered during your past lives. It is a good idea to have a natal chart for your birth time to avoid any unnecessary surprises.

Your natal chart will give you an idea of your personality. You will probably find it helpful in many areas of your life. For example, if you have a strong Mars, you’ll be lucky in your career. If you’re a woman, your sun will be in your sign. If you’re a man, you will be a good businessperson. If you’re a woman, you’ll have a lot of luck with men.

However, a simple explanation can help you understand this complicated tool. The process is fairly simple and will take you only a few minutes to complete. Here’s how it works.

The natal chart consists of a set of glyphs that represent the various planets and the geographical placement of the natal sign. These glyphs are interpreted to represent different aspects of a person’s personality, and the astrologer will use this information to interpret a person’s life. For example, Venus is a Fixed Fire Sign. In this case, the astrologer is saying that the person’s natal planet is in the Sign of Gemini, which is not the actual birth sign.

There are several other aspects of a natal chart that can be revealed. For example, if the natal planets are all in the same 240 degree zone, but one is in the 120 degree zone, this is known as a locomotive pattern.
