In a fluid, multi-national world, many clients do not have birth times, a critical piece of information needed to accurately determine houses and the timing of events. Rectification puts your knowledge and skill with techniques that move the chart in time in order to identify the most likely birth time.
Primary Instructor: Carol Tebbs.
Intensive 10-week course
The astrologer and client determine when rectification of the birth time is needed and what is to be accomplished by the search. For an accurate birth time, the dates of major life turning points should confirm the alignment of natal chart patterns to life events. If they do not, the client should provide information of specific life turning points and time range information from family sources.
By the end of the course, students will be able to apply various chart movement techniques to align appropriate chart patterns and astrological significators to actual life events, from a few minutes of known birth time to a 24-hour search. They will learn the important areas of practice and controversy in rectification; demonstrate knowledge of timing using planetary cycles with transits, progression, and direction; evaluate activated natal chart angles at important events, and derive a time that can consistently be repeated and aligned with all major events as shown in their final presentation
