Getting Started: Three important pieces of information are essential for an accurate assessment of a horoscope. Birthdate. Birth time. Birth place.
Where to find your birth time
The birth time should come from a reliable documented source. Hospital records, baby book, birth certificate, family book or Bible are some places that can have the birth time listed.
Mother’s memory is not considered reliable in most cases, after all mother was busy giving birth. Mother’s memory along with supporting events could be viable or usable. Each case needs to be evaluated carefully.
Sometimes good records are unavailable. There are other ways to find a ‘workable’ birth time. The one presented below is called ‘Rectification.’
If you think you know your birth time within five or ten minutes and can build a case for it, it may be possible to work with that time and fine tune it during a reading. We can talk or correspond regarding this possibility. If not, you might consider the following process.
Rectifying a birth time or determining a workable time happens as a co-creative effort. Your part is to provide a time-line of your life that includes about 10-12 significant events. These events can be occurrences like marriages, deaths, births, new jobs, a quick and unexpected move when you were five and or when a grandparent died.
Other significant events can be when you became distinctly clear about something or had a spiritual awakening. You may have met a person who changed your life in some way— a mentor, teacher, deceiver, lover, an obsession and so on. Fated events are as noteworthy as particularly creative times.
Dates and times of surgeries, and significant illnesses are helpful in this process of determining a workable birth time.
Feelings that you have about the events can be shared as well. Did a break-up feel as though a debt was paid or that something was left incomplete?
Memories that are part of a family history can be clues for a birth time.
“We usually sit for supper at 12:30 and mom’s water broke. The hospital is about an hour away and I was born in the hallway upon arrival.”
A family member dying or becoming ill within the nine month’s before your birth, can be important as well. Events at conception are revealing.
Once you start reviewing your life you may be surprised how much you can remember. Was it dark out or before sunset? Anything related to time is helpful in an exploration to determine a birth time.
Dates and times as close as possible are helpful. For example, January 13, 1986 at 2pm. Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. Marriage number 2.
Or, “I met my soul mate for the first time June 15, 2002.”
Talk to family. Look at scrap books. Take your time. Have fun with the process. You do not have to provide everything listed above. Don’t be afraid to share the feelings or emotions you felt at the time.
Ideally twelve or so events is a good start.
After you collect your Significant Events
My part is to take your information, time-line, stories and use astrological techniques to determine a birth time. I may need to ask for clarification and interact with you during the process. Just as it may take a bit of time for you to collect information, the process can take some time.
Will this be an accurate birth time?
We cannot be 100% sure that we can arrive at an exact time of birth. However, the time will reflects the patterns and events of your life, which is why it is also called a ‘workable‘ time. The outcome would be that an astrology reading would have more value and be more accurate in terms of the evolutionary patterns and lessons, as well, as current and future trends.
Fee $200.00. If the time it takes to determine a workable birth time takes less than average, the rest may be used toward a consultation.
Pre-payment is required. Please provide a recent picture and pictures as a baby, child, teenage, young adults as you have them. When we commit to this effort, I will give you a way to send me pictures that don’t involve email.
