Get Astrology Charts, Tables for Key Planets

The article includes helpful tables for the Sun, Moon, and Mercury (including ALL Mercury retrograde periods). It also tells you the major dates and timing for other planetary movements so you can mark your calendar and plan ahead.

Read the article now to see what 2015 has in store for you!


These dates are approximate because the Sun’s movement into the signs varies every year. So if you were born within two days of the start date of a particular Sun sign, it’s a good idea to obtain a copy of your astrological birth chart to confirm which sign the Sun actually occupied when you were born.

You can get a free copy of your birth chart if you have the exact date, time, and place of your birth. Go to our birth chart calculator now to get yours.

Starting to Read Your Chart

After you supply your information, a page displaying your birth (or “natal”) chart will appear and will look similar to this birth chart calculated for social work leader Jane Addams:

Jane Addams birth chart

Within Addams’s chart, find the circle with a dot in it (the astrological symbol for the Sun), which appears toward the left. As you can see, her Sun is in the sign of Virgo, which looks like an M with a loop on the right side.

Now do the same for your own chart. Use the tables below to see which sign the Sun occupies in your chart; you also can use them to see what signs the other planets occupied when you were born.
