To know what is my sign, it is necessary to determine in what zodiacal sign the Sun was the day when you were born. It means that to know what is my zodiac sign, you should find out in what sign zone the Sun was, not in what constellation. However, if you were born at the conjunction of two zodiac signs, it is more difficult to determine what is my sign. Like the western 12 astrology signs, the Chinese 12 zodiac animal signs also provide guidance on people’s love match and personality analysis, while the difference lies in the time division: western astrology signs are marked by 12 months according to Gregorian calendar, while Chinese animal signs are defined by a 12-year circle.

If you would like to learn a simple method by which you can erect your own birth chart, this is very easy for anyone to follow. You will use the ancient technique of the Whole Sign House system. This is the system by which I learned Astrology and is performed by Traditional Astrologers today
The degree of each planet is not needed to construct this chart. Why is the Whole Sign House system still used? Because it works! I use a combination of the Whole Sign House system as well as Western Astrology (using your planet in sign placement with the exact degrees) including the symbolic meaning of each planet and sign, sign rulers, elements, qualities and more. To avoid confusion, we will only use the Traditional Horoscope method to construct your chart and you will discover which signs rule the houses in your personal horoscope.
The band of the sky in which the planets move is called the Zodiac. The Zodiac is divided into 12 Signs, each of which contains 30 degrees (1/12th of a circle). The complete zodiac circle is 360 degrees.
At the bottom of the page you will find a zodiac wheel divided into 12 pie shaped slices. The Ascendant (1st house) is at 9 o'clock on the wheel. This is the first house in your horoscope and your Rising Sign. This sign is as important as your Sun Sign and of significant importance in everyone’s horoscope. Take the link on any page to Calculate your Rising Sign. It’s free for you to use and accurate if you know your exact birth time. If you do not know your birth time, use 12:00 noon, but keep in mind that your 1st house position is not guaranteed. You can find your birth time on your birth certificate or you may want to contact the hospital in which you were born. Most hospitals keep a record of births with vital information that is not always recorded on the birth certificate.
There is an order used to place each sign of the zodiac onto the wheel. Your Ascendant, the sign that governs your first house, is now in the 9 o'clock slice of pie. You can draw this out very easily on paper and place your corresponding houses on the appropriate slice of pie. Or else, you can list them from 1-12 as you are not concerned with the angles, just the house order.
Next, going around the wheel counter-clockwise the following house is your 2nd house, the next house is the 3rd and so on until you reach the last house, which is your 12th house. Now you're back at your first house again.
The sign order is always the same in the zodiac, but you will start at your 1st house and place the following signs in each pie shaped slice until you are back at your 1st house again.
The natural order of the signs is: Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces.
If your Rising Sign (1st house Ascendant) is Scorpio, place Scorpio 1st at 9 o'clock. Then follow the natural order of the signs: Sagittarius 2nd, Capricorn 3rd, Aquarius 4th, Pisces 5th, Aries 6th, Taurus 7th, Gemini 8th, Cancer 9th, Leo 10th, Virgo 12th and you're back at Scorpio, the first house.
I told you it was easy! Now you know which signs govern the houses in your horoscope. Visit the Houses page and read more about what areas each house covers in your horoscope. Read the planets page to learn about which planets have rulership over each of the signs and how they influence the sign and house in your horoscope. Each month when the sun changes signs, you will already know what areas will become a focus for you. Astrology really does work!
These directions are provided for those individuals that are not familiar with their birth chart, but who would like the opportunity to construct their birth chart without having to learn various methods and procedures. Although simple, it is nonetheless accurate
A horoscope includes much more than a birth chart and house positions. This is only a starting point.

What Is My Astrology Chart

They say human beings don’t come with an instruction manual. We beg to differ! Your astrology chart holds the key to your personality and path.

by The AstroTwins

An astrology birth chart—also called an astrology natal chart—is a map of where all the planets were in their journey around the Sun (from our vantage point on earth) at the exact moment you were born. An astrology chart reading can reveal your strengths and weaknesses, your opportunities for soul growth, the best timing for your most important moves.

To calculate your astrology birth chart, you’ll need your time, date and place of birth. Some people don’t know their birth time. If you can’t find it on your birth certificate, you can try contacting the Vital Records office in your state or area of birth. And if that still doesn’t work, make as close of an estimate as you can or enter 12:00 noon.

Without a birth time, you won’t be able to accurately learn your rising sign, or ascendant. Leo description. Nor will you correctly know which houses the planets in your chart fall in. But there is still a LOT of data you can glean by entering your date and location of birth—so don’t let that stop you from checking out your astrology natal chart.

What can an astrologer see in your chart?

Astrology charts can turn up surprising insight about your patterns and preferences. They’re an excellent way of understanding your own “blind spots” and using that knowledge for personal growth and self-improvement. You can learn which talents to develop and where you may have weak spots to develop.

Typically, an astrologer looks for a few key things in the birth chart:

  • What zodiac sign and which of the 12 houses each planet in the chart is in
  • Venus, Mars and the moon’s zodiac sign and house for love
  • Saturn for where you may need to work harder, Jupiter for where you could be lucky
  • The “aspects” or angles formed between any two planets
  • If there’s a “stellium” (3 or more planets in one sign), which creates a heavy concentration of one specific energy for the person
  • The balance of elements (planets in fire, earth, air and water signs) in the chart
  • The balance of qualities in the chart (planets in cardinal, mutable or fixed signs)
  • The pattern formed by the planets (there are 7 classical chart “shapes”)

An astrologer will add up the elements and qualities and “score” the chart. If there’s a lack of one trait or a predominance of another, they’ll advise the client on how to practically bring more equilibrium into their lives. We call this Astro-Ayurveda, because it’s the art of balancing your chart!

Start your year with your astrology chart—the power of transits:

There are two times when it’s especially fruitful to look over your astrology chart: at the beginning of every year and on your birthday.

For the new year, we’d suggest doing what’s called a transit chart (also called a “natal plus transits” chart). This may require the guidance of a professional astrologer because the interpretation work can get complex!

In this case, you start with your own natal (birth) chart, and compare it to the transiting (moving) planets, i.e., the current positions of the planets in the sky.

In the example below, the inner wheel (with blue planetary symbols) is our birth chart—which is a fixed map that never changes. The orange planetary symbols in the outer wheel represent the transiting (moving) planets on January 1, 2019. A trained astrologer would compare and contrast the two charts. When a transiting (orange) planet makes contact with one of the natal (blue) planets, it activates specific energy, one that can be either opportune or challenging. Knowing this allows you to plan ahead.

In this example at what would be 9:00 pm on a clock, a trained astrologer would see that transiting Saturn (which rules leadership and authority) was making contact with the natal chart’s ascendant/rising sign, something that only occurs every 29 years. Advice would be given accordingly—in this case, to get very serious about personal goals, since Saturn is moving through the chart’s first house of self. (Like we said—this can take years of practice or a trained astrological eye to interpret, but the foresight can be a game-changer!)

Transit charts aren’t only for New Year’s Day, though. You can plug in any date, past or future, and run a transit chart that compares the planets in motion your birth chart. Transit charts are super helpful for planning. If you’re picking a wedding date, booking travel or scheduling an important career move, check out the transit chart to see if the skies are clear.

Transit charts are also great for historical perspective: You can look back at important moments in your life—new love, relocations, deaths, breakups, career coups, job losses. Do a chart (or an estimated one) to see what was happening in the stars then.

What other kinds of astrology charts are there?

Solar Return Charts: Also known as your “birthday chart,” the solar return chart gives you a one-year chart that lasts from your current birthday until your next one.

Compatibility Astrology Charts: In addition to the astrology birth chart, you can do an astrology compatibility chart to see how you’ll get along with other people. You can cast two types of compatibility charts. A synastry chart compares and contrasts the planets in your chart and the other person’s. A composite chart averages out your two charts using a “midpoint method.” It creates a single, blended chart that reveals the essence of your relationship. A composite chart treats your relationship as if it was its own entity or a third “person” (which in many ways is true!). Try a compatibility astrology chart here >

Astrology Charts for Planning Events: You can do charts for people and also for events. Just put in the time, date and location of the event in question and you can cast an astrology chart for it. For example, if you’re planning a party or a big pitch meeting, you can enter the time, date and location to see how the stars align. Want to know what’s happening right now? Do today’s astrology chart by simply entering today’s date instead of your birth details. Wondering what the year ahead holds? Check out an annual forecast chart that maps out the next 12 months.

What about Vedic astrology charts?

The Western astrology chart is depicted as a wheel divided into 12 different segments, or houses. It dates back to You can do a Vedic astrology chart (or Jyotish astrology chart) or a Chinese astrology chart, which will calculate the data differently.

At Astrostyle, we work with the Western astrology system, which dates back thousands of years. Humans have tracked the movement of the heavens since civilization dawned. As far back as 6000 B.C. the Sumerians noted the journeys of planets and stars. Around 3300 B.C. the Babylonians (also known as the Chaldeans) began expanding upon what the Sumerians started, developing the first astrological system over thousands of years. They created the zodiac wheel that we use today (with planets and houses) around 700 B.C. The oldest known horoscope chart is believed to date to 409 B.C.
