This is a guide on how to create your sidereal birth chart.
Most astrologers use the Tropical zodiac. Since I use the Sidereal zodiac (Lahiri ayanamsa), I’ve gotten a lot of requests from my friends on Twitter (@PeoplesOracle) about how to create their chart this way. If you have never created your birth chart, you can use this guide to see your chart in Tropical as well.
