How to state birth data

Post by Jim Eshelman » Sun May 07, 2017 10:50 pm

When giving birth data, give it completely and without modifying. It is also preferable to give the source (so that levels of confidence can be established).

For example: According to my birth certificate, I was born October 10, 1954, 4:13 AM, Rochester, IN.

An astrologer creating the chart will look up longitude, latitude, and time zone information, and therefore would restate my birth data as: 1954 October 10, 4:13 AM CST, 41N04 86W13. (All astrologers have the references at hand to look this up in all but the most obscure situations.)
