When I set the New Moon chart I set it for Washington D.C.  When you set a chart you need to set it for the capital of your country.  If there is a stellium containing more than three planets, it is really a good idea to calculate the chart for your country/state.  When you interpret a stellium you look at how the planets involved will react to each other, and then their location in the chart.  This also applies to your natal chart.
