No Recorded Birth Time or Inconclusive Birth Time? Rectifying birth times is one of the most detailed and complex practices within astrology.

Did you know that I offer a chart rectification service through my website? I am blessed to have an outstanding teacher in India, who through my website, offers birth time rectification and correction service. He is a chart rectification expert of the highest experience level.

If you have always wanted a reading but do not have a recorded or have an inaccurate time - or if your rising degree is very early (0-2 degrees) or very late (28-30 degrees) in any sign, you may want to consider this option.

The entire process generally takes about two weeks from start to finish. You can order you chart rectification here. The process will begin as soon as the intake form and payment is complete.
