WHAT IS THE TIME OF BIRTH?
Birth time is the moment when the infant touches ground resting beside her mother. Most popular and accurate view is that bhopatana should be regarded as birth time. Some babies do not give out a cry (actually it is only a cracking noise caused by gushing of air to its lungs!) and cutting of umbilical chord will take some more time As such they can not be regarded as time of birth. The first ever independent exercise on the part of the infant is breathing and it should be taken as birth time. In large number of cases there would not be much difference between all these events. Further, as everyone sports a watch the birth time is accurately recorded these days. In ancient times recording of birth time was not so accurate and so rectification techniques as propounded in Khanda I of , Uttarkalamrita and Nastajatakadhyaya of Brihat Jataka were used. But in my humble experience spread over 20 years and more, I do not find these methods much dependable. The rectification of birth SHOULD only be employed in the doubtful cases - to draw nearer to the birth time and should not be used to correct every birth time.
In case, the birth time is not at all known, (any time between 00:00 to 23:59), then Prashna (horary) chart can be used based on the numbers the client selects and time of approach. This has very restricted scope as it answers one or two questions burning in his mind. Prashna Marga is an ideal classic work which can be relied upon. In Prashna Shastra, the houses and planets assume different roles. For example, in a question regarding the disease, lagna is the patient, 7th is the disease, 11th the cure and 9th represents the doctor. In reading a prashna chart, tajaka yogas are used. These yogas are not similar to western astrology. In the western astrology the opposition is called difficult aspect and such an aspect between two benefics like guru and sukra is considered bad. In Vedic astrology, the nature of planets is taken into account and opposition between benefic planets is not bad.
The tajaka yogas are approaching and separating aspects between the significators of the prashna. As we plan every move with reference to time, the client meets the astrologer at a particular time (pre-planned), the world has become a small i-village due to vast advancement in communication. The astrologer is in India while the client is in Australia. Which time should be taken is the prashna! So, to have a clear time-scale I have devised a procedure. Just select 3 numbers from zero to infinity (fractions, decimals included - no negative values) and send it to me with time of selection and place of selection. I use different tools - one to fix the ascendant another to find the planetary positions. Time give will help me to know position of planets. This method of selecting numbers was practiced since long. Selecting beetle leaves, selecting numbers form 1-108, number selection in KP system 1-249 subs are of this category. As the numbers restrict your choice, I have thrown open complete number system. More number choices will increase accuracy. This is the reason for different spreads in a tarot reading.
As I said earlier, the prashna chart is not a replacement for the natal chart. This does not show flexibility. Also, the astrologer may relay on a fanciful thought that happened to the client - unlike a reliable event of birth in natal chart.
If the client is a mental patient or has quite fickle mind, the astrologer can never give accurate results. Whenever such a client comes to me I am terrified and wish to visit an astrologer - to check up whether I would add 'in' to my sane mind!
