Synonym: Nativity

Term used for a horoscope from which other horoscopes can be derived, for example prognostic methods such as Astro*Carto*Graphy, Davison Relationship Chart, Composite Chart or Persona Chart.

The natal chart is the basic chart or starting point for other horoscopes. It is often not possible to interpret these other charts without reference to the natal chart. A natal chart or nativity usually refers to the birth of a person, whereas a radix chart could refer either to a birth or to the moment of an event in mundane or electional astrology, or the moment of a question in horary astrology.
