Determining Your Time of Birth


When making an appointment to have an Astrology Reading, the usual information that’s required is: birth date, month, year, place and time. Sometimes it is assumed that knowing these with exactitude is essential to having a reading.

This is not true and I will explain why and provide several key angles of perspective on this long-standing question.

It should be noted here at the outset that the time of birth is based on the first breath, which is a rather mystical moment. Even so, due to the holistic basis of Astrology, as profound and spiritual as is the exact moment of birth, the first independent breath, it is not essential to know it.

For a variety of reasons, obtaining the time you were born can pose a challenge. If this is the case, rest assured that I can provide you with a deep and relevant Reading without knowing your birth time.

Sometimes people who don’t know as much as they assume present themselves as knowing more than they do… This is quite true when it comes to opinions regarding knowing the exact time of birth for the sake of working with Astrology. This is most certainly NOT true. So, if you encounter such a person, quietly realize that they are speaking with false authority.

The main reason why the notion of needing to know the exact time of birth is because it is linked to making predictions.

While traditional Astrology was all about prediction, modern Astrology has evolved to encompass many more angles of interpretation, perspectives and approaches. Yet, it also remains true that the birth time is not needed to make predictions, either.

Take a photo that does not have a fine pixelated image, even an old photo; you can still see what is in the picture very clearly, right? Yes! And the same is true of working with Astrology even when the time is not known. I should know because I have been doing it for successfully for over 25 years.

Still, trying to decipher the birth time is interesting and can prove very worthwhile and interesting, in and of itself. Doing so is technically referred to as Chart Rectification.


“My Reading with you went so much deeper than I imagined it would. It helped me to see and understand myself and many more aspects of human nature, and this has served to free me tremendously, releasing old beliefs no longer needed, so that I can be lighter, more aware and more receptive… In deep gratitude.” Denise

Chart Rectification is a process that stands on its own in terms of value and importance. If you do not know your birth time, consider making the investment with a session that is dedicated to the process of deciphering it. Doing so provides many insights and is an educational process too! Deciphering the time of birth via a process of asking questions about key events in your life often does prove to be a fascinating and profound experience all its own.

I also use other tools such as Numerology, Chinese Astrology, Mayan Astrology and the Destiny Cards each of which stand on their own but which I also am knowledgeable about, experienced with and adept at using.
