Alex Sumner’s answer to How can I know my exact birth time if I know I was born between 12.30 pm to 2 pm on 24 Dec 1984? – Quora

A person born in December 1984 would be 33 going on 34 years old in 2018, would have had one Saturn return, and be coming to the end of his third Jupiter-cycle.

The method used in western Tropical Astrology to narrow down your birth time is called “Chart Rectification.” This consists of looking at major events in a persons lifetime, and then comparing them with transits made by (e.g.) Saturn and / or Jupiter to that person’s natal chart.

If a major event corresponds to a planet transitting a -known- feature of the Natal chart, we may ignore that event for the purpose of Chart Rectification.
If however a major event does not correspond to such a feature, that is evidence that one has discovered a previously unknownfeature of the Natal chart – such as the exact position of the Ascendant or Mid-Heaven. We can verify this to see whether the position of the Ascendant would fit in with the known-facts (given the data supplied in the original question, the Ascendant can be narrowed down to a range of 22º 30′ – the maximum amount by which it would change position in ninety minutes).

For example: if one experienced a major life-affecting illness, AND that particular time did not correspond with Saturn transitting anywhere or anything else in your chart, that might show that Saturn was transitting your Ascendant at that time. Alternatively, if you experienced major good fortune in your public life, and Jupiter was not transitting anywhere or anything else in your chart, that might show that Jupiter was in fact transitting your Mid-Heaven.

By thus working out the precise moment of your Ascendant and / or Mid Heaven, it is then possible to work out your exact time of birth by back-calculation.

What the Stars Have In Store For… Gareth Southgate

Gareth Southgate, England Manager

Gareth Southgate was born on 3rd September 1970, in Watford, Hertfordshire, in England. Birth time unknown (as far as I can find out), so I have approximated it to 12 noon for the purpose of computing his horoscope, as follows:

Gareth Southgate, 3rd September 1970, Watford, Herts, 12 noon (approximated).

This may be briefly analysed thus:

Gareth is a mastermind and a healer, but his emotions are rather whimsical. Friendship is what makes him emotionally happy.

He thinks in a fruitful way, but can communicate his thoughts and needs in an impatient way, and might often be hasty and impulsive – in doing so going against his natural inclination for patience and caution.

He expresses his energy in an efficient way: when he becomes angry, he can become violent. He prefers to stand out in a crowd than to follow. He should watch for a tendency to be stubborn or dogmatic, which can impede his progress in life and cause unnecessary delays or obstacles.  He can be very temperamental, but he tends to get over things quickly.

In love he will be thoughtful and he seeks support.

Attracts the most good fortune he puts his “all” into a project or undertaking, and uses his magnetic powers to heal others. Enthusiastic for deeper studies and meanings, all that is taboo or mysterious, psychology. Values decisiveness, intensity, willpower, commitment, and strength. Very strong problem solver who cuts to the chase.

You are very persistent in carrying out your goals.  On the positive side, you are a tireless worker and have determination, discipline, organizing ability and can go the distance when those around you fall. Hard work is your forte. Your feelings are serious, well-controlled and not easily changed, although at times it may be hard for you to forgive and forget. Loyalty is important to you. Building structures that last is a need you have.

Otherwise he has an easy, likeable charm: although he finds the Mr Nice-Guy image that the public have created for him both a blessing and a curse.

The celebrities he is most like, personality speaking, are fellow footballer-turned-manager Ruud Gullit, English monarch Richard the Lionheart … and Tsar Ivan The Terrible.

(l-r), Gullit, Lionheart, Terrible.

Proposal for a new holiday: Astrology Day!

Happy Epiphany! Or, if you are a member of one of the Orthodox Churches, or are reading this in Africa, Merry Christmas! This post is a follow-up to my previous Epiphany-themed post, Jesus Christ: Pagan Messiah.

Astrologers are mentioned with high-praise in the Bible! All you Christian Fundamentalists who say that Astrology is evil, are ignoring the literal word of the good book, for the Gospel of St Matthew clearly says that the first foreigners to recognise Jesus as Christ were Astrologers. In fact, the Churches have instituted a day to honour the fact – today, the Feast of the Epiphany, January 6th.

Yes indeed. The Magi who came to offer gold, frankincense and myrrh were astrologers, who used their powers of casting horoscopes to predict the birth of the Messiah. The key to understanding this is the passage:

In the time of King Herod, after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem,  asking, “Where is the child who has been born king of the Jews? For we observed his star at its rising, and have come to pay him homage.”

Matthew 2:1-2

The phrase at its rising has been also been translated as “in the East.” This has given rise to an erroneous belief that there was an actual Star of Bethlehem, moving comet like through the sky to guide the Magi to the place of Jesus’ birth. Some have also speculated, also erroneously, that the passage refers to a planetary conjunction which occurred in 6BC. (NB: all stars rise in the East, simply because of the Earth’s rotation).

However, to an Astrologer, the passage takes on a completely different meaning. It refers to Jesus’ “rising sign” or Ascendant. Hence the Magi computed Jesus’ Horoscope. Incidentally, the Rising Sign is the literal “Horoscope” – the word means “house marker,” hence the Ascendant is the point from which the Houses of the chart are measured. Likewise they used the power of Astrology to identify the specific house in Bethlehem (it so happens that there is a method in Horary Astrology where the geographical location of a thing may be determined by the position of the ruler of the house under which it falls in the Horary chart – see, e.g. here).

This has given me a brilliant idea – the Christian Church should celebrate the Feast of the Epiphany as Astrology Day, precisely because it is the day when a group of Astrologers came to visit Baby Jesus. Given that every other Christian holiday inevitably becomes secularized soon enough, we may rely on the power of big business to soon open it up to people of all religions and none! Heck, if this idea takes off and finds widespread popular appeal, we shall soon have internet memes going round saying it was a pagan feast day all along!
