How-to Use the ZODI System
Creating a ZODI Chart
To create an astrological birth chart with ZODI, start by assigning the 12 zodiac signs to the houses on the ZODI Map. Begin with the sign of the Ascendant (or Rising sign) as the First House. It can be helpful to have the chart with you as a reference via an astrological app, website or on paper.

Once the Rising sign is placed at the First House, place the other 11 signs in zodiacal order, counter clockwise through the remaining houses, until each house is assigned a sign and sign key word card. Zodiacal order is: Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces.
Once you have the house sign designations set, place the planets in their respective houses based upon their signs…and Voila! You have a ZODI chart!
Here in our chart example video, Ash creates David Bowie’s chart. His First House is ruled by Aquarius, as his Ascendant (or Rising sign) was Aquarius. It then follows, that his Second House rulership is Pisces, Third is Aries, Fourth is Taurus and so on through to the Twelfth House in Capricorn. Once she placed his planets in their respective houses, by sign, we began to get a glimpse of his elemental nature (hint: he had a fair amount of planets in fire signs,) and the relationships between his natal planet placements.
