Try to find your birth time through all conventional means first.
Determine whether or not you still need a rectification.
Compile your life’s key events into a chronology.
Schedule an appointment, upload your chronology and complete payment via the form below.
I’ll analyze your chronology and natal chart possibilities before we meet.
If I’m confident, I’ll explain and test my model when we meet. If I’m uncertain, we’ll collaborate on narrowing down the possibilities.
A follow-up may or may not be necessary depending on how well the model holds up in your own testing, if the time can be further narrowed down, or how conclusive my rectification attempt was.
Rectification is the practice of using astrological methods to determine someone’s birth time and/or rising sign/degree if it is unknown or uncertain. Rectifying a natal chart involves matching up biographical events of someone’s life to the potential natal charts available in the timeframe of their birth.
Please make sure you have done your due diligence to find your birth time through conventional means before ordering a rectification, such as the following:
• Birth Certificate: This is usually reliable, but be aware that the birth time on the birth certificate might not be completely correct, especially if the birth minute is rounded to the nearest hour or half-hour. Depending on when and where you were born, the birth time might not be recorded on the birth certificate at all. If you were born in the United States, a good place to start searching for your birth certificate is here. If your state-issued birth certificate lacks the birth time, the county version might have it, or it may be on the long-form version of your birth certificate which you may have to specifically request.
• Hospital Records: If you were born in a hospital, the time may be on your hospital bracelet if it was kept. The hospital may still have records containing your birth time in their archives.
• Family Records: Usually, if your parents kept a baby book or other family records, the time could recorded in there.
• Birth Announcement: If you were born when births were announced in the local newspaper, you may be able to find the newspaper released after your birth in newspaper archives, the birth time or clues about the birth time can sometimes be there.
• Email/Social Media: If you were born when your parents might have had email or social media accounts, there could be clues or records there.
•Ask Parents/Relatives: Even if they don’t know the exact time, they may be able to give you some clues as to what part of the day it was. Keep in mind that memory can be unreliable.
• If you still have no clue at all about your birth time: Make sure you’ve tried everything in the above section.
• If you only have an approximate time: Ex. A parent vaguely remembers you were born “in the morning” or “around 6 pm“
• If you have a recorded birth time that is potentially rounded: A recorded birth minute ending in ‘0’ or ‘5’ is statistically more likely to be rounded, especially on the hour and half-hour, such as 3:00 pm, 3:30 pm, 3:15 pm, 3:45 pm, etc.
• If you have a recorded birth time with planets/points that are close to a sign boundary: The angles and the Lots are very sensitive to minor birth time changes. If the Ascendant/Descendant, MC/IC or the Lots of Fortune/Spirit/Eros are at 29° or 0° of a sign, it’s reasonable to wonder if you could have been born slightly earlier or later than your recorded birth time, especially if it’s a potentially rounded time. You can check these and more here at Astro-seek.com.
• If it’s ambiguous if you were truly born during the day or at night: If you were born close to sunrise or sunset, it can be uncertain if you’re truly a day or night chart. Knowing whether you were born during the day or at night can have important implications for the interpretation of your natal chart and for knowing the correct positions of the Lots which affects the timing of your life via the Zodiacal Releasing procedure. It has been observed that sometimes people born with the Sun a few degrees below the horizon before sunrise can still have functionally day charts. Similarly, those born just after sunset can have charts that behave like day charts.
Generally no, but it also depends on the complexity and specifics of your case. On average, the Earth’s angles move through the zodiac about 1° every 4 minutes. Unless there just happened to be a way to differentiate times within a 4 minute span, this is the narrowest range an astrologer could reasonably claim to rectify a natal chart. The primary goal I hope to achieve with rectification is to establish the correct rising sign where it is unknown or uncertain, or to narrow down the degree range of the Ascendant as much as possible when the rising sign is known. Even an extremely well-reasoned rectification is still speculative, so my analysis can only produce probabilities and ranges rather than exact birth times.
If you have no clue about your birth time: The first goal will be to determine which sign was rising at your birth, which we only have a 1/12 chance of getting right. Narrowing it down beyond that becomes far more speculative with even higher chances of inaccuracy.
If you have an approximate birth timeframe that spans more than one rising sign: Again, the primary goal will be to simply determine the correct rising sign, and we’re lucky if it can be rectified down to a narrower degree range.
If you have an approximate birth timeframe that spans within the time one sign rises: This is the case where we can more confidently proceed with rectifying down to a narrower degree range.
It is not often that I can get validation on my work in rectification. However, it has happened a handful of times, with a few successes and failures which I detailed in the Birth Time Rectification Course.
• I narrowed down the rising sign and rising degree range for a client with a 24-hour birth timeframe which was independently corroborated by their estranged parent’s memories.
• I narrowed down the rising sign for a client with a birth timeframe spanning 3 rising signs which was confirmed by the discovery of the birth time on their long form birth certificate.
• I narrowed down the rising sign for a client with a birth timeframe spanning 2 rising signs which was confirmed by the discovery of the birth time on their hospital records.
• I chose the rising sign for a client who was uncertain about whether their birth time was recorded as ‘am’ or ‘pm’, which was independently corroborated when the client reconfirmed with their mother what general time of day they were born.
• I publicly speculated on Elon Musk being an Aquarius rising, which was disconfirmed by the release of a biography which indicated he is a Cancer rising.
• I chose a rising sign for a client with a birth timeframe spanning 2 rising signs which was disconfirmed by the discovery of the birth time on their birth records.
Ideally the more precise dates you have in your chronology the more data I can consider in my analysis. Understandably we don’t always have perfect records of our own histories, so if you don’t know the exact date of an event, the month, the season or at least the year can still be helpful.
Personal: Others’ first impressions of you vs your self-image, changes in physical appearance, presentation or identity
Relationships: Birth data of significant others, first meetings, relationship starts/ends, weddings/divorces, other changes
Jobs: Career goals over time, job starts/ends, promotions/income changes, involvement in groups
Education: Enrollments, interruptions, graduations, travel
Moves: Moving days, apartment leases/home purchases, mortgages/loans
Family: Birth/death dates of family members/children, other notable family events
Health: Illnesses, accidents, surgeries
Hobbies: Activities you do for fun, pets
Ultimately I need to know some essential facts about your life. If someone were going to make a movie of your life, what would be impossible to leave out? That’s what I need to know.
I can only work with what I’m given. The more data I have and the more accurate and/or precise data I have to work with, the more certainty I may have with my rectification. It’s to your benefit to take the time and effort to work on your chronology before scheduling a rectification appointment.
I strongly recommend using a desktop or laptop computer so you can conveniently record your own copy of our session through Zoom which will immediately download into your specified downloads folder once the session ends. If you use a phone or tablet, Zoom will not let you record onto your device. If you gave consent for me to make a backup recording, I have limited space on my drive and can not guarantee that you will receive a recording of our session expeditiously.
