Hi to anyone reading this.

I wonder if there is anyone out there that is good at maths?
I have recently taken up a traditional course, much of which covers horary (all of which I have grasped).
However, one of the tasks requires that I understand how to hand calculate a chart.
This is an area I will be tested on, only I am very slow with maths and need someone to break it down.
I have asked my tutor for help, but I still don't really get what she means..
Is there anyone that is good at hand calculations that could assist?
Am willing to pay for assistance.

'….While few people are actually going to work out astrological charts by hand, that is, using paper, pencil,
it is important to know how to do it
because unless an astrologer spends a great deal of time doing charts by hand,
they will never fully understand astrology.
By doing charts by hand,
one begins to understand more about the movement of the planets
and how they combine to affect the lives of people on Earth.
Astrology is a sacred science
and by doing the mundane routine things,
our minds enter a meditative state
wherein we realise things we might not have been able to know or understand otherwise....'

SO
To make a horoscope
in addition to writing and drawing tools
you require an atlas and an ephemeris :smile:

An ephemeris is a book
or booklet
containing information about locations of planets, etc.
AMERICAN EPHEMERIS FOR THE 20TH CENTURY http://www.amazon.com/American-Ephemeris-Century-1900-2000-Midnight/dp/097624229X

AMERICAN EPHEMERIS FOR THE 21ST CENTURY http://www.amazon.co.uk/American-Ephemeris-21st-Century-2000-2050/dp/1934976148 mm

The information you require is the date and time and place of birth.

The place of birth is expressed in longitude and latitude.

Universal Time, or Greenwich Mean Time, is required to calculate the positions of the planets.

'….For some time, our NCGR Chapters have asked for an available example of how to set a natal chart.
During the Spring 2010 Board meeting, it was voted that NCGR would place such an example on its website,
utilizing as a resource, Joan Negus’ out-of-print workbook, Basic Astrology: a Practical Guide.
This particular work was chosen because it offers a time-proven resource for learning to accurately set a natal chart
and is an excellent way to honor Joan since she and Ken Negus were instrumental
in helping to establish the NCGR education program.
Ken Negus was contacted for permission to utilize Joan’s workbook, which he gave.....'

HOW TO SET A NATAL CHART http://www.geocosmic.org/educ/assets/chartcalc.pdf

QUOTE

'….Two resources that one must have available to set a chart are:

1. Table of Houses
2. Ephemeris of the year of birth.

Many examples are found in tables of houses and some ephemerides.

Examples given herein yield acceptable results for exams.
One may calculate by hand or by calculator,
both methods are included.

NB

Hand and/or computer calculating
does not always yield exactly to the minute and second
the same results as from astrological software

In fact,
not all astrological software yields exactly to the minute-second the same results
as another astrological software,
thus a small amount of error is accepted by exams.....' :smile:

Miss Scorpio,
I am concerned that your teacher is not good at teaching this part of calculating the natal chart.
It isn't hard. It's just time consuming. It's mostly addition, subtraction etc.
I was terrible at math but I learned it.
Once you have the correct Lat. and Long. coordinates, the table of houses and the ephemeris (and the table of diurnal motion of the planets) it's not hard.

IF you aren't getting it, it's probably because the person teaching you isn't structuring your lessons correctly.
