Rectification of a birth chart
This is an extremely involved technique and is sort of reverse engineering to arrive at the right time of birth when time of birth is unknown. Please watch these videos to get an idea about the amount of work that goes into rectifying a birth chart.
Why is having the right birth time important?
If you refer to the below articles about various parameters that complicate astrology you will understand and appreciate the importance of having the birth time exact to the second. An accurate birth time leads to accurate predictions. In other words, if the birth time is off by even a few minutes then still there is a huge probability for error.
Certainly, the time will be off in the D60 chart. Hospitals don’t bother with the seconds of birth and not even the minute many times. Therefore, the important cusps or lagna (ascendant) of the person will not line up. So clearly the D60 chart will be off, enough to cause erroneous predictions.
Astrology can only get accurate if the birth time is accurate. Sri Yukteshwar Giri and many yogi’s or fine astrologers in India (of the past) were so good with their intuition and work or knowledge that they were able to trace back the time of when the soul entered the baby in the mother’s womb. It is roughly estimated that this happens on the 45-48 day of pregnancy. If the soul doesn’t like the body or the vasanas (birth imprints) are not matching, then terminations in preganancy happen.
So there is a lot of confusion in the astrology community related to which is the correct birth time. For instance, there are debates: Is it the time when the baby’s head is outside ? or is it the time when the baby starts to breathe and the cry is heard for the first time ? or is it when the umbilical cord is cut off ? So far there is no clear agreement. All of them seem strong points to take into account for deciding the birth time. Also like I mentioned above, there is also the time when the soul actually enters the body of the baby. That is another time to keep in mind. Today’s astrology or astrologers are not capable of backtracking so much. When astrology reaches this level of perfection, then we can say it is resurrected completely. It will happen in the higher yugas (cycles of time).
The only way to confirm which is the correct birth time is using the events of life and rectifying it. In the case of twins, rectification is a must unless and until the parents were standing there and recorded the birth time accurately using a stopwatch. Rectification is also recommended for people who want accurate predictions to the day of the event.
What information I need from you?
In order to arrive at the right time of birth, I will need many important past events of your life to the exact date (refer to this link for more information on this topic – consultation form). A human being in his entire life will have about 18000-20000 events. But not all of that will impact them significantly. We would need significant events to rectify the chart, those events that had a huge impact on their being and consciousness. In addition, I would require your photograph.
At my current skill set, the best chart I have rectified is when the birth time was somewhere within the 12-15 hour window. The client had no clue of the time of birth and only knew that it was day birth. This rectification took almost 15-20 days of work on that chart. Needless to mention, this takes enormous effort, focus and patience. So based on that experience, I offer many tiers of rectification. The fees I charge is based on the amount of hours it takes me to correct the chart and the rectification window.
What is a birth time rectification window?
Consider a scenario where you have been told by your mother that you were born on 12 July 1980 after 1:30 a.m but somewhere close to 2 a.m. Now your mother has given you a tentative time of your birth. But you are not sure whether it is off by 5 mins or 10 mins or 30 mins. So the only way to rectify your birth time is scan your birth chart with the already manifested events and correct the error. In this specific example, the rectification window is 5 mins to 30 mins for birth time between 1:30 a.m to 2 a.m.
Take another example: A person’s mother tells the native that their birth date is 15 Jan 1950 but their time is anywhere after midnight but before 3 a.m in the morning. In this case, the rectification window is from 00:00 midnight to 3 a.m in the morning which is 3 hrs. But there can be cases when the person is not entirely sure of their birth time and think that it can be before midnight as well. Then the rectification window can be from 11 p.m of previous day to 3 a.m morning of next day which is 4 hrs.
Below, I offer various tiers of readings based on your rectification window. Make sure to pick the right window of time and mention that in the consultation form. If you are born at 3 a.m in the morning on 18 June 2000 and think your birth time is between 3 a.m to 3:30 a.m, you may not pick a rectification window of 30 min, then request me to check the window from 2:30 a.m to 3 a.m as well as window of time from 3 a.m to 3:30 a.m. This doesn’t qualify as 30 min window, it qualifies as 1 hr window in rectification.
1) Rectification when time of birth is within 15-20 hour window:
2) Rectification when time of birth is within 10-15 hour window:
3) Rectification when time of birth is within 6-10 hour window:
4) Rectification when time of birth is within 4-6 hour window:
Ideally, the birth time needs to accurate to the minute of arc at least. In my experience, even in such cases I have noted that it is never accurate to the second of arc. Nevertheless, it is tolerable for prediction purposes. If the birth time deviates above the 1min window, then predictions start to fall apart. This tier is suitable for people who think their birth time is within the 2-5 min window frame and also for those who seek finer rectification to the second of arc. In such cases, it is easy to rectify the birth time to the second (provided you have many events) and very useful for predicting events accurate to the day.
At the end of this reading, you will get a rectified time of birth based on the events that have occurred in your life. Please note that the birth time rectification is an iterative process. It is extremely exhausting and time consuming. Sometimes, it can take more time than expected. Also it will depend on my schedule. So, I will mention this well in advance that you will have to be patient with me. I will also ask many questions and we will exchange many back and forth emails. I will not put your case down unless and until I feel confident I have the right birth time!
In the particular cases of tier 1-4, since window of time is huge, the error bar is still pretty high. In such cases, I also offer finer rectification in real time. Once you have received you rectified time of birth, many major events will occur as you go on with your life. But if you manage to keep track of them and notify me on timely basis, I will use them for even finer rectification with no extra fees. This offer is not available for the eigth tier.
There is no easy way of knowing if the rectified time of birth is correct or wrong. The only way it can happen is if you miracalously found your birth certificate or some form of evidence in the future. Therefore, I think it is unfair for the client who pays a hefty fees to not get the full service. In the case of rectification tiers 1-5, where the time of birth is between 1-20 hr window, I will also make predictions of the future based on the rectified chart. This service is free of charge. You will have to keep track of those predictions and get back to me in case they did not manifest. If the predictions were way-off the mark, then I will work again with your chart and rectify it. There is no extra fees in such cases. But if the predictions manifest accordingly, then it means that the rectified time is accurate and you can be happy with my work.
