Does the birth time matter?
This seems like a strange question for an astrologer to ask. Of course the birth time matters. I don’t know any astrologer who would invest the time and energy required to interpret a natal chart without having an accurate time of birth. But therein lies the real question. What makes a birth time accurate? The degree on the Ascendant changes about every 4 minutes, creating a slightly different chart. Even identical twins are born more than 4 minutes apart. But is a few minutes difference in a birth time that significant? That’s what we’re going to explore in the featured articles this month.
We begin with How Important Is an Accurate Birth Time? on page 14. The short answer to this question is, “It depends.” Accurate and precise timing matters a great deal if you’re working with predictive natal astrology. But if you’re simply interpreting a natal chart, there’s a lot you can do with an approximate time of birth.
The six words no professional astrologer wants to hear from a client are, “I just found my birth certificate.” These words mean only one thing: the birth time you’ve been using for your interpretation is wrong. In Can This Chart Be Saved? you’ll learn how to assess the damage and see if you can salvage your work or if you need to start from scratch.
I’ve been through this experience myself, although not with a client. After interpreting Stephen Sondheim’s chart with my students in the Natal Interpretation Training Intensive, I discovered his birth time was wrong. Read A Case Study of Conflicting Birth Times: Stephen Sondheim to see what changed and why it was significant.
And in the Consciousness department this month, read Affirming Abundance vs. Affirming Prosperity to discover why affirmations about money rarely seem to work. Plus, we shine A Spotlight on Validation Needs in the Relationship department, and meet The Real Eighth House.
You'll find it all in the June issue of Talented Astrologer magazine!
