Also called as an astrology chart, birth charts are a tool in astrology that plot the exact positions of the heavenly bodies and signs during an individual’s birth. It helps people acquire the needed details on a person’s fate and characteristics.
The positioning of the signs and planets of a person’s natal chart will help demonstrate a person’s uniqueness and individuality.
In order to make a precise birth chart, get the precise details of your birth like your birth date that includes the exact day, month and year. The time of your birth should also be as exact as possible which is to the minute. The place of birth is also needed.
After getting the required information, you can now make your own birth chart by following these easy steps:
Draw the basic outlines on paper
Using a compass, draw 3 concentric circles on a piece of paper. Make the innermost circle at least half the size of the 2 outer ones. Divide the space between the 2 outer circles into 12 equal divisions as these divisions would symbolize the 12 zodiac signs. Label each of the 12 sections using the sign’s symbol in a counterclockwise order. Refer to the symbols online or from any astrology book for guidance. Divide each section into 30 equal degrees.
Identify the ascendant sign
Using the birth details in an ephemeris, determine your rising sign. The ephemeris is a chart that shows the positions of all heavenly bodies at a certain time and day. The ascendant is the sign that is found on the eastern horizon exactly at the time of your birth and coordinates with the birth location of an individual. Mark the ascendant on the chart after identifying it. The ephemeris will help you in determining the location by degrees.
