and to find the actual positions of the planets including the Moon when the native was born; use the Ephemeris at astrodienst. Theirs is superior imo. I just trust the Swiss for when it comes to time.



ephemeris



  1. a table or data file giving the calculated positions of a celestial object at regular intervals throughout a period.

But there are others equally good I'm sure in many ways - Check them out, you may find one more convenient and simpler to use -

Re: Casting a natal chart by hand

the "Find your Fate" link however, seems to me to be easier to use more convenient, for recent centuries of work -

EQUATION OF TIME ARTICLE

Calculates a table
of changes in the solar culmination
and
equation of time for a year
and
draws the chart

Astrology: Calculating the Chart - UT or GMT.
While few people work out astrological charts by hand
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
we realise things we might not have been able to know or understand otherwise

The tools you require to make a horoscope
in addition to writing and drawing tools
are an atlas and an ephemeris
An ephemeris is a book or booklet
containing information about the positions of planets, etc.


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.

thus

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.

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.....
