Prerequisite: A solid knowledge of astrology fundamentals and W110 or proof of equivalent training in movement techniques
In a fluid, multi-national world, many clients do not have birth times, a critical piece of information needed to accurately determine the chart Angles and houses and the accurate timing of events. Rectification challenges the student’s knowledge and skill with all movement techniques to derive the most likely birth time.
In practice, the astrologer and client determine when rectification of the birth time is needed and what is to be accomplished by the search. The dates of several major life turning points should confirm the alignment of natal chart patterns to known life events. Advanced astrology software that can search various movement methods is highly recommended, such as: Solar Fire 8 or 9, Kepler, Sirius, Pegasus, Time Passages, and others. Jigsaw (a research program) is not required.
