  1. Great post! Personally, I think it’s pretty incredible that you’ve been open-minded enough to see that your chart was off a bit, despite the fact that you’re obviously very invested in Astrology. It takes a lot of confidence to be able to bring up (even slight) inaccuracies, especially pertaining to you personally, about something like this (that comes under a lot of heavy fire for its validity, but that you firmly believe in). So… thanks for sharing!
    I think the Jupiter in the houses series sounds great! As for other requests/ideas, personally one of my favorite articles you’ve made was “Intercepted Planets/Signs: Unsupervised Children”. Perhaps going a bit more in depth about interceptions and how they affect the planets/signs they encompass would be really fascinating (of course that’s coming from me, someone with a stellium intercepted).
    Anyway, thanks for the great article!

    1. Thanks. But yeah it's not that wild of an idea actually. Birth certificates could potentially be off because they're made by people and people can mess up. It seems pretty reasonable. I think, if anyone resists it, it's because it threatens their own status quo and makes them fear that their own chart may be wrong. But it is better to know the real truth about yourself than just cling to what you are told.

    2. How can we tell how off our birthchart is?

  2. North node in Aquarius is the ruler of your ascendant. According to Vedic astrology. You are a ruler. Because sidereal astrology plays a part. Look it up. Congratulations. :)

  3. Chiron in the houses and signs. Is serious yet funny, showing that RANGE in an article would be funny and inspirational.

  4. Chart rectification is not that simple but it's nice that your intuition guided you towards what you feel your natal chart trully is.

    Not sure how the minute was rectified though...if we think about it, when you are born, doctors and nurses have their full attention on the baby and the mother. So it;s more likely to be born earlier and they write the date 5 or even 10 minutes later, after everything is ok. It's not like they are preocuupied to write time and date when you are still in the womb getting ready to be in the world. Just an opinion.

    Mercury in the houses could be fun too. :D

    1. Yeah it was actually a long process. I didn't just randomly decide on it. Like I said, specific transit events, things that were pretty life changing or direction altering, were what made me settle on the minute, due to how they hit certain angles or houses, including the Ascendant. To me, that is the best way to rectify.

      And again, doctors and nurses are only human. Mistakes can happen, possibly in the actual making of the birth certificate. Many people have had errors on theirs, including the time. A lot of people's birth certificates will be wholly accurate. But it would be a bit naive to think that everyone's is, especially if the Rising sign before or after feels like a better fit for the person.

      But don't get me wrong. It is important to have the birth certificate. I just think that if there is room for doubt, it shouldn't be the be all, end all.

    2. My words came out in the wrong order and ruined the whole intention of my post. (saturn square mercury, always a pleasure).

      I wanted to say: ''Not sure how you rectified your birthchart! if you placed the minute of birth earlier than initial or later. instead of : ''not sure how the minute was rectified" ( I do believe in human errors, wrong birth times and so on :) )

      Chart rectification becomes even more important when you are in doubt and when transits are off but evenmore when your ascendant is on the closing degree of a sign//opening on another one. My whole point was to suggest to pay attention on logic as well when rectifying the chart (solely when we talk about minutes). It was something I learned from a respectable astrologer and from nurses in the maternity. They are concerned with your safety first. Only then they tend to other stuff. Oh... I hope you;ll have the patience to read through this again, it feels so bad to be misunderstood...#wavinggeminiflag

    3. Oh, no, no. It's okay. I didn't take any offense to your post! I think I just have a way of explaining myself that can come off at times as defensive when I don't intend to be at all. Another reason why I think I have Moon square Ascendant! :) And online, when it's hard to understand tone, that can happen even more.

      I was just making a point but I see what you're saying. You mean the exact minute rather than the exact degree. I feel like the degree may be more important, in this instance, because even if the rectified time is just a couple minutes off, there's less harm in that than the degree of the Ascendant being off. I think getting the degree of the Ascendant right is more important and that obviously makes it much more likely for the time to be right.

      So, there was a little misunderstanding on both our parts but no worries. You're fine. :)

    4. That's a relief. :)
      A similar issue , except I seem agressive...
      As a mars in 3rd square asc I can rub nice people the wrong way and that's never what I want.

      I understood your point as well. It's reasonable and hey, a moon in 9th house! thumbs up

  5. Hi, Wayman🙂 You are such a great astrologer👍🏻 Thank you, for your great work! Could you please do an article about Pluto conjuncting Descendant but from the 6 house side

  6. Is this true about you?

    Sun in the 7th house natives crave relationships. They really don’t like to be alone and often perform better in life when they have a partner. They can lose their identity in a relationship, though, because they want to please their partner. They can be too agreeable and passive at times because they really need peace in their relationships to be happy. This placement can swing from being very committed in relationships to constantly searching for the perfect partner. They may rush into relationships too easily and can fall in love easily, as well. Sun in the 7th house people are natural diplomats and are very good at negotiating. They are well liked and have a charming nature that draws people in. They are sensitive to rejection and just want to be accepted. They are highly social creatures. Sun in 7th house natives need to remember that they can be independent and happy.

    1. Yeah, well, the Aquarius energy in the 1st makes me very independent. But, it is true. I just think that the 7th House Sun is about close relationships that are both romantic and platonic. They can make us sound like we always need to be with someone romantically. For a while, I never related to that. Then, I realized how much energy I put into my close friendships, to a degree that was like a romantic relationship, and I realized how accurate it was. Sun in the 7th identifies with being a "partner", whether that's as a significant other or best friend.

      But, it is a constant push-pull. I have the Aquarius side to me that just does my own thing and loves being independent and free and then the Leo in the 7th energy that loves being passionately connected to people. But, since it's also my South Node, I have to curb those traits significantly and not indulge in them.

  7. A Jupiter in the house series sounds great!

    Could you also do an article on Sun/Venus aspects and how they're expressed through each sign?

    I'm dying to know more about my Sun/Venus conjunction in Scorpio! Lol

  8. Hey, do you think that putting in a specific time zone in your birth chart is a good idea? Most online calculators use a default time zone. But in astrodienst for example, you can choose a specific time zone. I would put in EST because I was born in the east coast. But when I go to change it, a message pops up that says that changing the time zone for a chart would make it inaccurate. I'm a Cancer rising. But on the chart with this specific time zone, I'm a Leo rising. I always felt more like a Leo rising. So I naturally wanna go with that one. But it might be wrong. Which one should I go with?

    ReplyDelete

    1. I never feel like it's necessary to play with the time zone, especially since we live in the Internet age and that's all done for you already. If you really are in doubt and want to play around with your chart, you can try to rectify it to see if a Leo Rising birth time would be a more accurate chart for you.

      Ever since I rectified mine, I'm realizing that this is a problem quite a few people can have with their charts. It's worth looking into and just requires a lot of clear self-awareness in terms of which chart is actually the right fit for you.

      I should say that if you were asked to describe yourself and you automatically listed Cancer-like traits or attitudes like "I love my family", "It depends on my mood" or "I'm very sensitive but I hide it well", you would be Cancer Rising. But, if your first impulse in describing yourself is something like "I'm so full of life!", "I'm really passionate" or "I'm very much a leader", you would be a Leo Rising.

      Birth chart rectification falls under the special consultation service, by the way. So, if you are interested in following up on it, you can order a session with me!

    2. Aw damn it. I guess I'm a Cancer rising then. Well, I guess I'll have to deal with it then

    3. Haha well there is something great about every Rising sign! If you really relate more to Cancer, you should just accept it and learn to love it.

  10. This post inspired me to rethink my birth time. I would think that it takes a while for the doc to get finished delivering a baby and when he gets the certificate, he just writes down the time he is making the certificate. Which inspired me to back my time up a bit and give myself a Scorpio MC along with my Aquarius AC. It puts my Sun and Pluto into my 8th house along with my chart ruler Uranus. This chart FITS me! And it is the Placidus chart. I have never believed my Sun to be in the 7th house. I don't go out of my way to form friendships. My entire life has been an interest in forensics, research, and the occult. And I have had a lot of crises in my lifetime. Thanks for this post.

    1. I'm a little late in replying but I'm glad! I don't think astrology can be utilized as effectively as possible if we aren't allowed to question things. It sounds like it doesn't affect your chart that much, like maybe it just sets the Asc back several degrees? That kind of rectification is much easier to do. You just might want to think about a bit more before settling on it. But, still, congrats!

    1. Haha well thanks! (And it's Wayman, but a lot of people make that mistake) And me too. It's really a part of how I get my exercise. I also live in a city where there's a transit system, so I don't even have a car nor do I want one or feel like I need one. Apparently, that's kind of weird to many people. I've always had little eccentricities like that.

  13. I'm a 29degree Capricorn rising....but... what if I actually was a Aquarius rising just like you? I have Uranus in the first house though

    1. I changed my birth time from 22h30 to 22h35 and I'm an aquarius rising but all the planets are still in the same house... even my house cups except for the ascendant are the same... and when I read your article about how to guess someone risign sign I rely more on the Aquarius rising body type (but maybe it's just bc of my 1st house Uranus )...

    2. Like I do have "uncontrollable movements" and my hands are really cold....

    3. Well if you have Uranus in the 1st, you will feel a lot like an Aquarius Rising regardless. Plus the 29th degree of Capricorn makes it a very fine line.

      But rectifying your chart shouldn't be done on a whim. I spent a lot of time thinking about it and testing it out. As I said, looking at the transits matters the most.

    4. Yes, it's just that I don't rely on my 7th Cancer but I think it's because of my 7th Mercury and Venus...

  14. Hey Wayman Stewart!
    Interesting post!
    I believe you might be right about your new chart, as I did have my chart read by someone in the beginning of the year and the calculations were slightly different from the one I did myself on astrotheme.... with Neptune R up a house, I asked her about it and she told me it is due to the system the site uses to calculate... so I went on to all sites I could and had my chart done on all...... Just to see what would come up, and they were slightly different... specially the asteroids, still haven't figured about Neptune R though. Astrology is fascinating and it will take me years to learn to read it properly.
    It is nice to come across your blog!!!

  15. Hi Wayman!
    Congrats on your rectification. I am a new follower and was drawn here after reading your piece; Venus-Jupiter Aspects: The Hedonist. Having this aspect (opposition) I found it to be one of the more insightful delineations I have read on it yet.
    I wonder if you used any progressions for your rectification. You only mentioned using transits. I find Solar Arcs to be amazing when it comes to validating timing for significant events in life. Noel Tyl has some very useful info in his books on SA's.
    Look forward to reading more of your posts!

  16. A Jupiter in the houses series sounds like a good idea. I really much loved most of your aspect articles. You could maybe write about Jupiter/Saturn aspects.

  22. Just read this after reading your North Node lesson post from Feb 9 (which is pretty cool, good for you and your assertive voice :-)
    Anyway I have to agree with you about Birth Certificates being wrong potentially, as the hospital info from my crib says 4.50pm, my weight etc, but the Certificate says 5.50pm. One of them is wrong clearly, so yes it can happen.

  23. I have a unique story that no one can ever top. I just found out that my Mother LIED about my birth time to me.
    And what is more incredible is that she was so into astrology that she had AstroCartoGraphy charts done for us when I was little. KNOWING that mine was WRONG. She let me spend 2 plus decades thinking I was Sag Rising. And this impacted where I wanted to move to and didnt … This has impacted my life so much.
    I would have moved to the west coast 10-15 years ago, but I knew I had Saturn DES and Mars MH, so I thought they were off limits.
    Turns out, nope I am Scorpio Rising and SUN IC runs along SF to Seattle for my REAL chart.
    I don’t even words.
    Birth times aren’t printed on birth certificates where I;m from, so I depended on my Mother for it.
    So crazy.
    And I finally figured out why she this. My Father, her ex was Scorpio, so my crazy Mother didnt want me to identify with him.
    My whole life, whenever people try and guess my rising sign they have guessed Scorpio.
    All my choices make sense now.
    And I AM so thrilled to drop the act of trying to be Sag like.
    I love Sags, I’m just not remotely like any of them.
    I am very settled where I am now, but I am dreaming of waht might have been ....

  26. Our charts are super similar, would love to show you our synastry.
    My email is dylanfoxxx666@gmail.com if you'd like to take a look. Your blog is my favorite. I have Neptune and Saturn in Capricorn in the 12th, all our houses are the same except for my intercepted ones (Aquarius in the 1st, Leo in the 7th). Your MC is conjunct my Sun, and my Moon conjunct your AC. I think I have a crush on you now. LOL
