Don’t know your correct birth time? “Birth Time Rectification” is the Solution!

Is your birth time accurate? Always get incorrect predictions from astrologers? Know your accurate birth time using Birth Time Rectification. 

Birth Time Rectification or BTR is a very important method in terms of Astrology, in which a person’s exact time of birth is accurately ascertained. It is a complex and time taking method which involves perfect astrological knowledge and information regarding events and incidents. It is also of prime importance for an astrologer to be proficient and highly qualified in order to practice BTR.
Importance of Birth Time Rectification

We often get in contact with people who do not know their exact time of birth. Also, most of the time, birth certificate provided by a doctor involves time that does not match with a person’s horoscope. As a result, differences occur in between future predictions and turn of events in the life of a person. For example, doctors often provide birth time at an interval of every five minutes, lets say 10:05 or 10:10. It is not necessarily the exact time of birth as a person can be also born at 10:06 or 10:07. Furthermore, majority of doctors focus on the birth of a baby and not time and hence, provide an estimated time period which causes difference in birth time. So, we have Birth Time Rectification or BTR, an important means to avoid all these problems and situations. With this, the exact time of birth of a person can be ascertained, which an astrologer uses to provide future predictions and guides them.

Birth Time Rectification Methods (Paddhati)

As per Vedic Astrology, there are various methods of Birth Time Rectification that has been given by our highly skilled sages and hermits. Some of the main methods are as follows:

  • Parashar Method
  • Varahamihir Method
  • Kalidas Method
  • Kerala Jyotish Method
  • Method based on Events
  • Krishnamurti Method
  • Nadi and Bhrigu Method
  • Prenatal Epoch Method etc.

Using above methods, Birth Time Rectification of a person can be found out. Apart from these, various expert astrologers have invented different astrological techniques that can also be used for BTR.

For Birth Time Rectification, the Ascendant of the person (girl or boy) is required. Some expert astrologers are able to find the position of Ascendant and other planets just by acknowledging the physical appearance of a person. When Ascendant is discovered, then using Krishnamurti Method, birth hour and minutes of a person is estimated.

According to Birth Time Rectification method given in Uttara Kalamrita by Kalidasa, following three activities are carried out:

  1. Nakshatra Shuddhi
  2. Stree-Purusha Janama Shuddhi
  3. Lagna Shuddhi

Under Krishnamurti Method, many astrologers also use RP System for Birth Time Rectification. Following are known:

  1. Day Lord (Vaar Swami)
  2. Moon Sign Lord (Chandra Rashi Swami)
  3. Moon Constellation Lord (Moon Nakshatra Swami)
  4. Ascendant Sign Lord (Lagna Swami)
  5. Ascendant Constellation Lord (Lagna Nakshatra Swami)

Using aforementioned methods, we can perform the exact Birth Time Rectification of a person. Other than these, there are various other methods that can be used to perform this task.

As BTR process can takes time, Horary Astrology can be used as an immediate solution to cater to one or two queries that need quick attention. In this method, an astrologer provides precise, focused and accurate answer based on the exact time when the question was asked.
