How To Use The Birth Chart Calculator

  • This calculator uses a 24-hour clock. If your birth time is after noon, be sure to convert the time by adding 12 hours. For example, if you were born at 2:56 p.m., you would add 2:56 + 12 = 14:56 and then enter 14:56 in the “Time of Birth” section of the birth chart calculator.
  • The calculator is designed to work in all browsers and with all mobile devices. If you get an error message at any time, be sure to clear your cache and check your settings. For questions, contact your device’s manufacturer.
  • Print or save your chart by right clicking on it after it appears and following the instructions in the drop-down menu that comes up after you right click.

Look in your chart for the circle with a dot in it (the astrological symbol for the Sun). Now see what symbol appears next to it within the circle of your chart and then see the “Zodiac Signs” table above to see what sign your Sun occupies. You also can use these tables to see what signs the other planets occupied when you were born.
