Birth Charts

When exploring astrology, your own birth (or natal) chart is a perfect entryway. This chart maps the placement and relationship of the planets and zodiac constellations at your birth. You’ll need to know your birthdate, birth time, and place of birth. Many commercial sites and apps offer reliable birth charts. We recommend Cafe Astrology because it does not require registration or additional personal information. This site is associated with Amazon and Powell Books.
