Three Different Ways to Make Your Birth Chart

You can make your own birth chart through online birth chart tools or software, using a planisphere, or by using formulae.

A birth chart, also known as natal or nativity chart is an astrological chart showing the placement of the stars and planets in the sky at the exact time and date you were born. Astrologists use this diagram to gain information about the person because they believe that the heavenly bodies have significant influences on our personalities. They use the chart as a basis for understanding the individual’s strengths and weaknesses when counseling them. Here are ways that you can make your own natal chart.

Online birth chart tools or software

This is the easiest and fastest way to make a natal chart. By searching the Internet for the right natal chart tool or software, you can get your chart almost instantly without doing the computations and drawings yourself. All you need to do is to input very important and accurate data like your name and the date, time and place of your birth on the corresponding fields of the software, which will process everything for you. Just to be sure, check your birth certificate so you know the data is correct. Once it is processed or emailed to you, print the results and read the information with it that is all about you.

Using a planisphere

In this method, you will be the one to draw the chart. The first thing that you will do is prepare all the needed information like the day, year, time, and place you were born. These data are very important factors needed for the exact placement of the stars and planets at the moment of your birth. Next, find a planisphere, or sky map. They are movable paper wheels of the map of the stars, which you can set to a specific time, date, or hemisphere. Now, set the sky maps to your birth date, time, place, and year. Then, draw a circle and draw a horizontal and vertical line at the center, dividing the circle into 4 equal parts. At the upper left part of the circle, place the 12th, 11th, and 10th houses, then the 9th, 8th, and 7th houses on the upper right. At the lower left part of the circle, place the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd houses, then the 4th, 5th, and 6th houses on the lower right. The first six houses above the horizontal line are the houses viewable in the sky when you were born. On the other hand, the remaining six houses below the line are those not seen in the sky when you were born. Next, look at the sky map and write down the zodiac constellations positioned in each houses in your chart, including the rest of the astrological bodies like the sun, moon and the planets on the chart. Now that you have plotted your basic birth chart, you just need to interpret it. You can check out astrological websites to learn how to best consult an astrologist.

Using formulae

This is the trickiest way to make your natal chart and is only recommended for those who are really interested in knowing more about astrology, and who are good in math. With this method, you will be calculating local sidereal time, house cusps, planetary positions, and the many aspects of the chart.

Whichever way you want to make your natal chart, just be sure that you are using the correct data. In addition, if you do not have the slightest idea where to start, ask for help from the professionals.

Stir Fry con Pineapple tops

For my first entrée for FTF, let me share with you one of my favorite dinners "Stir Fry con Pineapple Toppings". Instead of using pork I use Tofu as substitute. One more thing I love when I am having stir fry veggie is I can have rice as well. Ohh, I am really missing rice as part of my meal.

Meet Sunny

Hey folks, let me introduce to you Sunny, the spoiled male budgie. A spunky little parakeet, Sunny has been a part of the family for ten months now. Sunny's color is a mixture of light green and yellow lacewing. They say that English budgerigars are some of the most talkers in the parrot family. I agree to that. Sunny would always try to talk. As young as he is, with his parroty voice he would utter words like “yes, yes,” “pretty bird,” and “hello sunny”... Sunny was already five months in the house when I met him. I was a little scared when I had him on my fingers because he kept biting me, as if he was thinking my fingers were food...hahaha. However, he is extremely easy to tame, just one call of his name and he would fly toward to you and most of all he is easy to feed.

I will tell you more of Sunny on my next blog.

Lucky Coin

I do not believe on lucky object but for some reason it is just happening to us. We recently went to 711 to buy scratch off lotto tickets and we have been using this Canadian Coin. Every time we use this coin, two to three tickets out of five would be a winning ticket. The first time we used this coin, the two tickets we won. We got 50bucks and 20bucks for each ticket. Therefore, not believing it was the lucky coin, we went back to 711 to buy another ticket. This time we bought three tickets. We scratch off one ticket and we won four bucks. We have two more tickets left. Then, we scratch off the next ticket and we won four more dollars. We were making a deal, whether we will win on the last ticket or not. Using the same coin again and giggling while scratching the ticket, thinking at the same time if we will get it three in a row but presto we won two bucks on our last ticket. Whew! We have been buying lotto tickets almost every week but we never win. Since we use this lucky coin, we started winning.

America's Best Gift Card

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of FriendGiftr. All opinions are 100% mine.

Giving gifts nowadays became easier for me, whether it’s for birthday, wedding, anniversary, or any other special occasions. All I have to do is go online and go to my favorite shopping site which is .FriendGiftr. This shopping site offers real digital and/or physical gift cards good for persons dear to me, my friends and my family. I can buy gift cards worth 10$ to 100$ from over 120 of my favorite retail and restaurant.
Just recently, one of my family members had her birthday. This celebrant thinks that she doesn’t need any material gift at all because she thinks that she doesn’t need them at all. She is right because she have a lot of stuffs in her garage for her quarterly yard sale. But she has two weaknesses which are eating and shopping. So, me and the rest of the family have been thinking and planning on what to do and what to give for her birthday. Since she likes eating and shopping, friendgifter saves the day. We gave her a Red Lobster gift card since she likes seafood so much. We explained to her that If she doesn’t like to spend the entire gift card on Red Lobster she can swap her gift card to another merchant she likes for no additional cost. What’s good in this gift card is that the buyer can use its service on its own website, on their favorite social networking sites likeFacebook,MySpace,iGoogle, Bebo, and Ning.Not only that users can also use mobile online shopping using iPhone, Blackberry, Android, WebOS, Symbian OS,or any other phone with wifi access.

So, what are you waiting for, get connected now and be the first one to put a smile on your love ones face.
