Natal Chart

Definition of Natal Chart

A natal chart is what an astrologer uses to tell you all about yourself and what’s going to happen. It is calculated from the date, time, and place of your birth. This is sometimes called a birth chart. While mostly the charts are cast for people, it is possible to cast a chart for the birth of a business, or the start of a marriage or other event.

Ephemeris

An ephemeris is a map of the planets. Because the planets are in constant motion, that map is going to change constantly. Ephemerides come in either midnight or noon versions, and show you where the planets are (or were for a date in the past or will be for a date in the future) at either midnight or noon GMT.
