To avoid confusion, we will only use the Traditional Horoscope method to construct your free natal chart and you will discover which signs rule the houses in your personal horoscope. The band of the sky in which the planets move is called the Zodiac. The Zodiac is divided into 12 Signs, each of which contains 30 degrees (1/12th of a circle). The complete zodiac circle is 360 degrees. At the bottom of the page you will find a zodiac wheel divided into 12 pie shaped slices. The Ascendant (1st house) is at 9 o'clock on the wheel.

Most hospitals keep a record of births with vital information that is not always recorded on the birth certificate. There is an order used to place each sign of the zodiac onto the wheel. Your Ascendant, the sign that governs your first house, is now in the 9 o'clock slice of pie. You can draw this out very easily on paper and place your corresponding houses on the appropriate slice of pie. Or else, you can list them from 1-12 as you are not concerned with the angles, just the house order. Next, going around the wheel counter-clockwise the following house is your 2nd house, the next house is the 3rd and so on until you reach the last house, which is your 12th house. Now you're back at your first house again. The sign order is always the same in the zodiac, but you will start at your 1st house and place the following signs in each pie shaped slice until you are back at your 1st house again. The natural order of the signs is: Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces. If your Rising Sign (1st house Ascendant) is Scorpio, place Scorpio 1st at 9 o'clock. Then follow the natural order of the signs: Sagittarius 2nd, Capricorn 3rd, Aquarius 4th, Pisces 5th, Aries 6th, Taurus 7th, Gemini 8th, Cancer 9th, Leo 10th, Virgo 12th and you're back at Scorpio, the first house.

The rising sign on this free astrology report is different than I expected, why?

Provided you have entered the date, location, time and timezone correctly, these free astrology reports are accurate. The 'rising sign' changes roughly every two hours, so the place and time of birth must be accurate to calculate an accurate rising sign. The locations in the database and their associated timezones should be correct. However, further adjustments are made for Daylight Savings Time at certain locations, and it is worth checking that the timezone set in the form for your location is correct for your date of birth. I store the central coordinates for locations, as given by my sources.

I have a lot of aspects in my chart and I often get contradictory interpretations within the same computerized reading, so it is hard for me to see the overview.

Unfortunately, along with the rise of natal astrology (more or less a 20th century invention) came the assumption that the astrologer (or in this case, the computer) should be able to construct a little essay proclaiming 'what this person is like', without considering that to attempt such a thing is to attempt The Most Difficult Prediction of all, namely, how this or that person has so far expressed the various and contradictory elements at work in his or her psyche. What you usually end up with is a very gray average picture of the human being. The 'average' is a mythical entity. There is always more going on than we consciously realise. Individually, human beings are bundles of contradictions. Some charts are glorious, and some are real monstrosities. An 'astrology of imperatives' (the idea that one has a cosmic purpose to fulfill as depicted in the birth chart) acknowledges this and encourages us to take our cosmic remit to the highest levels expression, rather than settling for the 'average' expression, whatever that is. Each planet is a different 'organ of the psyche'. The heart does not perform the same function as the liver. Another feature of these computer generated reports is the inclusion of so-called 'minor aspects' (semi-square, ses-square, etc.), which were invented by Kepler in the 17th century and do not form part of traditional astrology, but have been included here because users expect them. You can ignore these if you wish.
