What Is a Natal Chart in Astrology?

Learn what a natal chart is from famed astrologer Jenny Lynch in this Howcast video.


Hi I'm Jenny Lynch and I'm here today to talk to you about what is a natal chart. So in astrology, at the time you were born, the astrologer will cast a horoscope for the exact time and the exact place that you were born. This horoscope is considered your road map to life, okay, it is your blueprint, your destiny. The things it shows your strengths, your weaknesses, and it also talks about your future. It shows you periods that are coming up that might be challenging, or times that might be very lucky and fortuitous. It talks about your love life.

When are you going to meet your soul mate? It talks about your career. When are you going to find the perfect job? Will you ever find the perfect job? It can give you information about your health, your children, your home, your family, your destiny. It can also talk about your money, your credit cards, your friends, things that your really care about and basically tell you anything that you really want to know. So the idea is that the horoscope itself is just a snapshot of the sky and the location of the planets and the aspects that are made to it tell a story of what's possible. So the three things that you need to get an accurate natal chart is your birthdate, the time, and the location.
