True Instant Natal Horoscopes & Readings on the Web

A birth chart or natal horoscope shows us the “cards we are dealt” as we enter the world, and our potentials. Call it your "spiritual DNA," or a map of your soul.

Every other type of horoscope you'll ever want has your unique birth chart as its foundation.

Get birth charts and free and non-technical chart readings by entering your birth information on these five websites, tested for accuracy.

They don't want money, phone numbers or an email address. They do require your birth date, place, and time (within two hours is fine; otherwise, see the "Tips" below).

Tested and Trustworthy

Tips For Getting the Truest Possible Chart

  • "Evening, around suppertime" is the best birth time you have? If your guess is within two hours of the real birth time, the sites will generate a fairly accurate chart and reading.
  • If your birth time is totally unknown, entering 6:00 A.M. creates a default chart and a reasonably good default reading, but it can't calculate your true rising sign or which zodiac signs rule the 12 "houses" of your chart.
  • These sites automatically correct for Daylight Savings Time or War Time or things like that.
  • Some sites ask for time “military” style time: For example, 2:15 p.m. would be 14:15.
  • When entering your birthplace, follow the instructions. For most, type in only its first few letters and the site will find your birthplace automatically. If several cities have the same name (such as “Springfield”), the site will generate a list and you select the correct one.
  • Don't change your birthplace to the place you live now; the resulting horoscope will be inaccurate.

Sample: Part of Steve Jobs' Horoscope Reading, by

Mars in Aries
You are powerfully motivated, even driven, have a hot temper, and tend to be impulsive. You are seldom reflective when it comes to doing something, but act first and ask questions later. Your more fiery emotions are always an insult away. You have blind courage and sheer guts. Aggressive. A self-starter. Energetic.

Mars in 8th house
Not content with appearances, you are driven to reduce everything to the bare essentials. This compelling urge for integrity and contempt for the superficial may offend some.

Jupiter in Cancer
A career in big business is possible, for you like broad, secure foundations. It is important for you to feel safe, and you are domestic - family, home, and kids. Supportive, nurture, you use your intuition and gut instinct over thought and deliberation. Fiercely loyal, you are a street fighter when protecting your own interests or those you love. Dependable.

When You Want to Know More

Most sites can sell you a much more detailed, multi-page computer-generated birth-chart report for $20 to $35. Specific reports about your upcoming year, love life or finances might be available. These are legitimate, but being computerized they lack nuance, are sometimes contradictory, and you don't get to explain your situation or ask questions.

For readings about present and future conditions or for answers to specific questions, consult a professional astrologer, preferably one you can meet. A professional astrologer will gladly give you references. Use them. Readings by genuine and professional astrologers are never free. Like any other trained and experienced professionals, they charge professional rates.

Does a birth horoscope determine your life and fate? That's a very outdated view, proven wrong. It's a tool for analyzing personality, talents, and what drives a person, and shows what we should work on to become our best selves.

Is there such a thing as a bad birth chart? No. Some are more challenging than others. Steve Jobs had a very challenging, complex chart. He did all right.

    Dear ATaurusLoyality: A natal chart is a sky map showing the positions of the Sun, Moon and planets at the moment of your birth. Astrologers are trained to read and interpret the symbols and variables in the chart (you can see Steve Jobs' natal chart in the illustration) and can tell you what it "reveals about your basic personality." Chart reading gets very technical. It's like translating a foreign language. Most people want only the interpretation or meaning of their charts. The sites listed in the article offer a simplified interpretation of a birth chart, but although simplified they are not bogus. They are fun and can be helpful for understanding yourself and other people.
