Free Natal Chart Report – Sidereal Zodiac with Whole Sign Houses
The following free birth chart tool lists planet signs, house positions, and aspects. This is for the Sidereal Zodiac with whole sign house system and using the Lahiri ayanamsha. This system is not for everyone so that if you are uncertain, you might instead go back to the default system for determining houses, which is Placidus using the Tropical Zodiac (For the default report using the Tropical Zodiac and Placidus houses, return here). Please note that Cafe Astrology uses the Tropical Zodiac by default.*
Many of the major factors are currently interpreted, such as Sun, Moon, Ascendant, Mercury, and Venus in signs and house. More to come, so please check back from time to time! **See instructions/notes below for using this calculator.
Some notes about this birth chart calculator:
- Please be patient when entering your birth city to allow the program to call up the list of locations as sometimes it’s not instantaneous. If you’re just not getting results and can’t submit, it may be that the atlas is busy (GeoNames has certain limits per hour and per day). In this case, you can use this same tool on my sister site, Astrology Cafe here.
- It’s important to enter the city name only or the first several letters of the city in the Birth City field, not the country or state/province/region. For example, if you were born in Fuzhou, Fujian, China, you should enter “fuzhou” or similar and not “fujian” or “china.” It’s better not to overtype – for best results, type in the CITY name and scroll through the list for the correct city.
- **Important: Under normal circumstances, you don’t need to change the time zone offset. Please don’t adjust the time zone offset unless you know for certain what you’re doing since the default offsets incorporate crucial factors, such as daylight savings time, and are in the majority of cases accurate. There are discrepancies as with all historical time zone atlases, particularly for birth years before 1970, so if you need help with the time zone offset value, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to mention why you’re writing and include full birth data.
- Note: if there is an error in the Geonames atlas service (that is, if the service cannot find the time zone temporarily), the UTC offset will state “false” instead of a numerical value. Before pressing Submit, please change “false” to the appropriate time zone numeral. If you need help with determining this number, write to email@example.com.
If you’d like to save your report to keep for yourself, you might choose the PDF option above. Before generating the PDF, you can adjust the fonts and click to remove parts of the report you don’t want to include in your copy–such as this paragraph!
Do you prefer the default Tropical Zodiac with the Placidus House system? If so, you can find the default free natal chart report with Placidus houses here. If you prefer the Koch house system, you can use this Natal Chart Report Generator with Koch Houses, or if Equal is your preferred house system, use the Natal Chart Report with Equal Houses calculator.
See also Cafe Astrology’s Free Reports site, including full interpretations of the natal chart, transits, and compatibility, online since 2002.
The interpretations in the birth chart report are written by myself, Annie Heese, and are typically expanded interpretations already found on this site.
*The Whole House System:
With the Whole Signs House system, each house begins at 0 degrees of the sign. For example, if the Ascendant is 4 degrees Leo, then the 1st house begins at 0 degrees Leo, the 2nd house is calculated as 0 degrees Virgo, the 3rd, 0 degrees Libra, and so forth.
If you’re uncertain, we suggest using the default generator with Placidus houses to start. After studying astrology and experimenting with house systems, you might elect to use Whole Sign, Koch, Campanus, Equal, or others, or continue with Placidus.
