The ruling planet of the chart can also be found in the Ascendant. A person with a Sagittarius Ascendant, for example, lives in a world that is dominated by the bountiful Jupiter, whereas a person with a Pisces Ascendant is ruled by the compassionate Neptune.
The Ascendant is used not only to determine our unique terrain but also to design the unique structure of the chart. Birth charts are read counterclockwise, with the First House being defined by the horizontal line of the Ascendant. As we move up the chart’s sections, or Houses, we begin at the Descendent on the right side of the horizon and work our way up. The Twelfth House, which borders the Ascendant to the north, is where the cycle comes to a conclusion.
Can a birth chart be determined without the birth time?
Thanks to the Earth’s daily rotation, the planets and the sky are both constantly in motion. A freeze-frame is provided by your birth chart. It is an image of the sky as it appeared when and when you first entered the earth. For a precise chart reading, you must be aware of the precise time, date, and location of your birth.
For instance, the Moon switches signs every two to three days. Only your birth time would be able to determine what sign the Moon was in when you were born if you were born on a day when it changed signs.
Rising indicators change even more quickly. The sign that is currently ascending over the Eastern horizon is known as the rising sign (also known as the ascendant). This is the place in your birth chart where your body, vitality, and sense of self are most closely represented. This sign forms your first House of self and identity because it is so unique to you. The sign after that makes your 3rd House of communication, daily life, siblings and extended family, etc., and the sign after that becomes your 2nd House of possessions, resources, and livelihood. You won’t understand which signs belong to certain residences if you don’t know your rising sign.
Every 1-2 hours, rising signs change, and within a 24-hour period, the complete zodiac rolodex crosses the horizon. The precise degree ascending, or the degree of your ascendant, also advances every few minutes. Your rising sign is significant in astrology for this reason, which is also why the CHANI app places a lot of emphasis on it. It is wholly specific to you.
The other birth chart anchors are comparable in this regard. The precise time, day, and location of your birth determines the points of your MC (which represents your profession and public duties), IC (home, family, and roots), and DC (close relationships).
If you don’t know your birth time, there are other methods to use your chart, but we wanted to provide you some suggestions on how you may look for the most accurate astrological interpretation possible. It is beneficial to know and speak with your parents and caregivers because different hospitals, states, and nations have varied methods for recording births. That’s not an option for many people whose parents were adopted, passed away, or lost contact.
Age also has an impact. Older records may be more difficult to locate, though this isn’t always the case, and/or certain hospitals may have only begun keeping track of birth timings after a certain date.
Leave no stone unturned
Do your research if it needs to be done. Your birth time may have been recorded even if you cannot see it on your birth certificate at home. The short-form birth certificate, which is effectively a signed statement that the long-form certificate exists, is all that many people have. The most important details, such your birthdate, are included, although the time is infrequently mentioned. The documentation kept at the hospital is the long-form birth certificate. More information is frequently included, such as the parents’ names, birth dates, hospitals, and yes, the time of birth.
Call the birth records management division of your local government to obtain the long-form certificate. Depending on where you live, this may be referred to as the vital statistics ministry, department, or office. It may be state-wide, province-wide, county-wide, or parish-wideagain, depending on where and when you were born.
Ask someone to check the record to make sure the birth time is accurate before ordering the certificate. You won’t be the only one making this request because astrology is currently so well-liked, even considered normal.
You might also try contacting the birthplace hospital. They might be able to inform you who keeps those documents if they don’t.
Finding your long-form birth certificate is usually the wisest course of action, regardless of whether your parents or caretakers believe they know when you were born. Most individuals who were present when you were born were preoccupied with other activities at the time, so it’s more likely than not that their memories are inaccurate. Keep in mind that your rising sign can alter within a few minutes, so if at all feasible, choose an exact time rather than one that is rounded to the nearest hour.
Examine ancient baby books, photo albums, attic boxes, scrapbooks, family bibles, etc. There’s a potential that your long-form certificate was misplaced, or that a meticulous parent, grandmother, or caregiver recorded the hour of your birth in their diary.
Inquire with your parents, carers, or anybody who may have been there when you were born, such as a relative or close friend. As previously noted, finding a record with your precise birth time is ideal, but if you can zero in on the hour or general time of day, it can help you identify your Moon and limit the possibilities for your rising sign.
Rectify your chart
As a final resort, you can attempt to have an astrologer who specializes in this method correct your chart. Trial and error will always be a part of life. Although chart correction is not an exact science, it does work quite well for some people. While we do not provide recommendations for astrologers that perform this type of work, we do advise asking about in your networks (or even on Twitter?) to see if anyone you know has a relationship with a reputable astrologer.
How is ascendant determined?
A person’s rising sign is decided by their exact time of birth, but their sun sign is determined by their date of birth. Every two hours is governed by a different rising (or ascendant) sign because there are 12 zodiac signs and there are 24 hours in a day. Thus, the Virgo from our introduction may have a rising Taurus, a rising Scorpio, or any other rising sign in their chart depending on the time and place of birth. Finding out a person’s rising sign can provide insight on the particular type of Virgo they are. Something else that can assist reveal the personality of a sign? their color of power.
What is the formula for Panchangam?
Yoga is the fourth segment of a Panchanga. The Sun and Moon’s positions serve as the foundation for this calculation. To determine Yoga, a mathematical computation is made. The 27 different types of yogas. These forms of yoga produce the outcomes they promise. To compute the Yoga, we shall combine the Bhogansha of the Sun and the Bhogansha of the Moon. The sum will then be divided by 13 degrees and 20 minutes. 800 minutes are obtained by converting 13 degrees 20 minutes into minutes. By multiplying the result by 800, you can find the answer.
Let’s go over this process one more. Include the Moon and Sun Bhogansha for the day you intend to practice yoga. Subtract 800 minutes, or 13 degrees 20 minutes, from the total. Your daily yoga practice will be determined by the division result. If the answer is 15.56, the 15 Yogas have been completed, and the 16th Yoga is currently in progress. Sidhi Yoga is the sixteenth yoga. Therefore, Sidhi Yoga will be the practiced today.
The 27 Yogas have the following names:
Which astrological method is most reliable?
Although the houses are measured out in 30 degree increments beginning from the degree of the ascendant, the equal house method divides the ecliptic into twelve divisions of 30 degrees. The first house starts with the ascendant, which serves as the first house’s “cusp,” or starting point. The second house then starts exactly 30 degrees later in the zodiacal sequence from the second house, and so on. In comparison to the Placidean and other quadrant house systems, supporters of the equal house system assert that it is more precise and less distorted at higher latitudes (particularly above 60 degrees).
