How to rectify your birth time
I can tell you some method to rectify the noted time of birth. I have warn you depending solely on them. One of the method is following:- convert the time of birth in Ghatis etc after sun rise into Vighatis. Multiply this by 4 and divide the product by 9. The remainder will indicate the number of the star of birth counted from Asvini, Magha or Mula. If you apply this rule to our example horoscope, you get 525 Vighatis. Then 525*4/9=233 and a remainder of 3. But the third star from Mula would be Uttarasadha. This is not correct. We must get Satabhisak. If you take 8g-30v as the time of birth should be 8 ghatis and 30 Vighatis etc. by 4 and add to it the number of the Rashi the Lagna represents from Mesa and again add 5, 10 or 15 according as the Lagna is movable, fixed our dual. Divide this sum by 27. Take the balance into consideration. If the birth is in the bright fortnight, count from Chitra. That star should be a natal star or one of its trines. In the given example this rule does not hold good. But if you take 8-31. 5 ghatis, you get a remainder of 6 which gives the required star Satabhisak.
Another method is, multiply the time of birth in ghatis by 6. Add to this particular date of solar month. This total would reveal the number of degree by which the Lagna is removed from the very commencement of the sign occupied by the Sun. It was the 24th day of Simha month. If you add this to 50-70, which is the product you get by multiplying the Istaghati by 6, you get 75*-10’ farther from the beginning of Leo, because the Sun is situated in that sign. But actually our Lagna-sphuta is 6s-10*-32’-4” ie.2s-10*-32’-4” removed from the initial point of Leo. However, this will help us in locating the Ascendant broadly.
In other method, note the Rashi and Navamsa occupied by Mandi as well as by the Moon. Now the Lagna of birth will have some connection with this Rashi. The Lagna may be the 7th, 5th or 9th from the sign or Navamsa of Mandi or the Moon, whichever is stronger of the two, Mandi is in Makara in sign and Leo in Amsa. The moon is in Kumbha Rashi and Makara Navamsa but the latter is stronger. Here the Lagna is actually in the 9th house from the Moon, degree of both being exactly the same ie 11th, the Lagna may be trine to the lord of the sign or Amsa of the Moon or Mandi.
The planet that occupies a Kendra position in the birth chart gives the direction. You know the quarters presided over by the planets. Suppose there are many planets in Kendras, then will have to declare the direction from the strongest of them.
The women or obstetricians etc. in attendance on the expectant mother would depend on the number of planets posited between the Ascendant and the Moon. The number of person standing or waiting outside is equal to the number outside that range. The quantity of oil in the lamp will correspond to the portion of the sign yet to be covered by the Moon in the particular Rashi occupied by her. The part of the wick remaining is to be guessed from the part of the sign of Lagna that has not yet risen. The nature of the lamp whether movable or fixed is to be deduced from the nature of Rashi occupied by the Sun.
If in the chart the Moon does not aspect the ascendant, the child’s father must have been away from home at the time of birth. This means that the Moon should be in the 7th house from the Lagna for the father to be at home. If the lord of the 9th house is in the visible hemisphere - six sign counted backward from the Lagna- and in a fixed Rashi or Amsa and has some sort of connection or aspect on the Lagna or its lord and the Moon or the lord of its Rashi. If these conditions are satisfied, you can say the father was at home. If the Sun is posited in the 9th or 8th house, which is movable, fixed or dual sign, the father is in another village, in his own village or on his way home respectively.
