Natal Chart Birthday Astrology Readings
The 12 signs of the Zodiac are a magnificent discovery that our ancestors left for us thousands of years ago. They were a way of determining the likelihood of certain types of events occurring, based on the alignment of the planets and arrangements of stars in the night sky.
One limitation of star sign only readings is that they’re a generalization of everyone across each particular star sign. That is, they’re not an accurate reflection of foretelling of you, personally.
That’s where birthday astrology comes in.
To really experience the benefit of astrology and the star signs, it would be better to get your own personal birthday astrology reading.
We’re sure that’s why you’re here. To that end, there are two things that many first-timers overlook when deciding to get a reading. These are two things that can help improve a birthday astrology reading.
You very likely know what the first of these two are. And as for the second one, you likely have a rough idea what it is, but it would be better if you had a more specific knowledge of it.
The 2 Secrets Are…
1. Your place of birth.
This is the first bit of knowledge that an advanced astrologer may ask of you. Most people already know where they were born, and that’s good.
2. Your time of birth.
Not your date of birth (though that’s helpful), but the hour and even minute of your birth.
Now, we don’t expect you to know the exact minute of your birth, and even if you don’t know the exact hour, that’s fine. Very good astrologers have a series of tools and procedures they can use to determine, with a high degree of accuracy, what your exact birth time is.
They may still need to know the day you were born, and if you have an approximate time of day, even better.
The more information you can give to your astrologer, and the more accurate that information is, the more accurate a reading they can give you.
What to Do If You Don’t Know The Time of Your Birth
Depending on where you were born, there are a number of ways to find out your birth time.
First, if you were born in a state or country that keeps “long form” or full birth certificates, such as the United States, you can request a copy. Be sure to ask for the long or full-length certificate, as the short, frame-sized ones may not display the time you were born.
Second, you can ask your birth mother what time you were born. To your surprise, she might even know the hour you were born, and maybe even the exact minute.
As an interesting side note, some astrologers believe that the true moment of birth is “first breath,” as that’s when the soul enters the body.
In any case, your birth mother should, at the very least, know whether you were born in the morning, afternoon, evening, or whatever the case may be.
If your birth mother is not available, you can ask others who may have been around when you were born, such as your relatives. If you were baptized at birth, perhaps the presiding church has records, or even the priest or clergy person may remember.
Even if you only have a rough idea, such as the afternoon or evening, that’s fine for most resourceful astrologers.
How Astrologers Can Give You An Accurate Birthday Astrology Reading, Even If You’re Not Sure About Your Birth Time
To understand how you can still get an accurate reading without an approximate birth time, we have to consider one major reason you go to an astrologer: to get a star chart made.
An accurate star chart can tell an astrologer things about you that they otherwise wouldn’t know, with surprising accuracy. With an accurate chart, the astrologer will have insight into what you’re naturally good at, the type of career that may suit you, and will even tell you about the major events of your life.
Ideally, if you know the exact time and place of your birth, you’ll tell that to the astrologer, and they’ll be able to construct a good star chart.
But, in cases where information is missing, such as your birth time, the astrologer may ask for approximations, such as whether you were born in the morning or afternoon.
For example, let’s say you believe you were born some time in the evening. You don’t know exactly when, but from your inquiries, it was during the evening. The astrologer might, hypothetically, cast a chart based on a birth time of 18:00.
The way to test the accuracy of this chart is to use rectification. To rectify a chart involves asking you about significant events in your life. Marriages, break-ups, significant career changes, and relocations are all examples of milestones in one’s life.
To the degree that the major events of your life correlate with the chart determines it’s accuracy.
If the first chart isn’t accurate, the astrologer may repeat the process, this time hypothetically casting a chart for the birth time of 19:00. Then perhaps 17:00 will be the next attempt.
And the process goes on and on, and with each attempt, your exact birth time continues to emerge.
Finally, the star chart that’s the most accurate depiction of your life’s events is the chart that’s based on the time (and place) you were born. As the astrologer gets closer and closer, you may find yourself saying, “Yes…yes, that’s exactly when that happened!”
In conclusion, if you’re considering birthday astrology, be sure to have as much information as possible pertaining to your time and place of birth. You can ask your astrologer if it’s okay that you don’t know the exact time of your birth. That should be fine, as even a good approximation will be enough for a competent astrologer to come up with a surprisingly accurate birth chart that offers insights into who you are, what your purpose is, and where you’re going.
