How to Get Your Free Sidereal Natal Chart


Hi, everyone its Phaedra. I’m here to do a quick demonstration for you on getting your free copy of your sidereal natal report–sorry, I was distracted by a notification there but so, what I’ll be doing today is I’ll be walking you through a screen share video of how to use Astro dot com to get a copy of your natal chart. Today we’re going to be making a sidereal natal chart, so that you can have one to use in the Facebook group, Sidereal insights Astrology, and that way you’ll have it to follow along as we have our conversations in there so if you’ll give me just one moment, I’m going to screen share with you and together We will go to Astro and we’ll get your report, so–excuse me, your chart. Here we go I’m going to screen share with you just briefly we’re going to go full screen screen share. Then we are going to hide and then minimize, and then here we go open our browser window and So what we’re looking at here at Astro dot com And that is astro.com and I’m going to be showing you on the second tab in from the left where it says “Free Horoscopes” how to get a sidereal chart under the extended chart selection here on the far right under Drawings & Calculations It’s the second one down: “Extended Chart Selection”. Go ahead and click on that and let it load and while you’re following along I’ll be inputting my birth information and that you can go ahead and input yours. And we’re going to use as a Guest User, that top option right there. I’m not logged in. I do have an account here and I do suggest creating a free account if you are so interested. And part of the reason I suggest that is because you can store your chart information if you do have a free account Up to 200 charts you can store and that way you don’t have to re-enter it every time that you come Which is super helpful, but today, we’re going to just be using my birth information off the top of my head So on just briefly while I type in my name. I identify as female And my birthday its 21st of January in 1975 and I was born at three twenty in Brunswick, Maine Not Australia, not Germany Maybe we scrolled past it already here we go, ME that’s the one And there are extended settings here where you can edit timezone and partner preference. We’re not going to be using those today I do want you to draw your attention to up here where it says Sun in Aquarius, Moon in Taurus, and Ascendant in Cancer 17 degrees because that’s what’s going to change when we enter here the extended chart selection. We’re not going to worry about a partner today, just ourselves And we won’t be changing any of these upper settings. Natal chart wheel is just fine although feel free to come back and explore all the other different types of wheels and Then we want the “web default style” chart drawing although there are other types of chart drawings that you can have a look at and what we want to focus on is right here under options, we Want to change our house system to whole house Where is it at? Whole signs, right there. That is the oldest known house system in astrology, and I like to use it as a foundational house system when I begin a chart analysis or interpretation Then I want to have you change the zodiac here to the second one in where it says “sidereal” instead of tropical And then we’re going to have you in the [drop] [down] list select Fagin-Bradley which is the first option down under Babylonian and I use the sidereal zodiac for a couple of reasons partly for historical accuracy and partly for scientific accuracy The tropical zodiac that’s used in Western astrology today is a solar calendar that was created About 2,000 or so years ago give or take that came to us through the Arabic translations of ancient Greek works although we do know that the ancient Greeks and even the ancient Babylonians used a sidereal zodiac system and so that’s what we’re going to be focusing on today. That is what I use primarily in my practice, it’s not the only thing I use in my practice, but is what I use primarily and part of these I’m going to have you set this up today and save your chart is so that you can use it in our group in the discussion because this is the this is the Zodiac that I’ll be referring to so go ahead and make those changes There are some other fun things to get into down here with the additional objects Especially the asteroids so when you have time don’t hesitate come back to [astro.com] and have a look at those settings. Right now we’re just going to click to show the chart and show you how to save and print that And then we’ll also show you how to get some additional additional tables as well So here it gives us the chart and what you’ll notice when we first look at this is that it shifts my sun sign in to Capricorn from Aquarius, my Ascendant into Gemini from Cancer, and my moon is now in Aries instead of in Taurus. And now the reason this is important to me –and to you for your own chart–is because on on the day that I was born–and this would be true for you on the day you were born–the sun actually was in Capricorn that day. If you were to have gone out and looked at the, you know, the sky that night, the orientation of the constellations in the sky would support the sun rose that day in the sign of Capricorn and this is one of the big differences between the sidereal zodiac and the tropical zodiac today is that they have drifted apart due to precession and so the sidereal is where we’re focusing just for the purposes of this discussion. So to save your chart Once you’ve got it you [right-click] on it, and I believe you can just excuse me, let me right-click again, no cancel. We don’t want to add a filter We just want to [right-click], and we’re going to “save image as” That’s one way Or you can click on the image itself, and it will pop it up in a new tab Just the chart drawing with the details and then just scroll down excuse me, it’s also going to give you excuse me the table with your aspects and your planetary replacements okay, so you can save it or you can print it from your browser and then the other tables that you, the other page that you want is right here, where it says “Additional tables” Pdf, go ahead and click on that And what’s going to load, excuse me, is a second page with the details of your placements, and your aspects, houses, longitude, speed,declination, that sort of thing and you might not need this right away although eventually you may be glad that you saved it and printed it out, but you’ll want to save this one as well, either download or print, or what have you. So there you have it I’m going to exit out of this I’m going to quit sharing my screen and we’ll get back to the actual video Let me go ahead and stop screen share. Hi!
