In the course of booking a Reading or when reading your Horoscopes, please note that if you were born on or around the cusp and are not sure of your actual Sun Sign, you might read both entries, especially the second one.
For example, if you were born on February 19 your Sun Sign may be Aquarius or it may be Pisces. In this case you could read both Aquarius and Pisces. The "cusp" (border) between signs can occur anywhere between the 18th, especially in the case of the Aquarius/Pisces cusp, and the 24th day of each month, especially in the case of the Leo/Virgo cusp.
The official textbook dates for each Zodiac Sign are listed below. Again, you will notice cross over dates.
Aries: March 21 – April 19 Taurus: April 20 – May 20 Gemini: May 21 – Jun 21 Cancer: June 22 – July 22 Leo: July 23 – August 22 Virgo: August 23 – September 22 Libra: September 23 – October 22 Scorpio: October 23 – November 21 Sagittarius: November 22 – December 21 Capricorn: December 22 – January 19 Aquarius: January 20 – February 18 Pisces: February 19 – March 20
But technically, you are one sign or the other, not both in regards to your actual Sun Sign. In the deeper sense, we are all actually a blend of all the signs. Yet, a planet cannot be in two ‘signs’ at the same time.
When I am provided with a birth time that seems rounded off to the hour, half hour and even quarter hour, this sends a message that the time given may be only an estimated or ‘guesstimated’ time. The fact that your exact birth time can be determined based on key characteristics and events and their date and time is testimony to the power of Astrology to measure destiny.
So, in order to definitely know your Sun Sign, regarding reading your horoscopes, or to know your Rising Sign or which Houses the remaining planets are in, regarding having an actual Reading session with me, you may have to get your chart rectified.
Determining your actual birth time which is sometimes required to know your actual Sun Sign or to precisely know what is your Rising Sign and the exact degree of it, can be achieved through a process called birth time rectification. This is a true art that requires that the Astrologer be both intuitive and precise in the use of prediction techniques. Knowing which sign you are actually are is ideal and can be a rich process to decipher, all on its own.

Chart or Birth Time Rectification includes a process of asking questions asked about certain characteristics that best describe you and when certain key events occurred in your life. Even when the time of birth is apparently know, it could be off by several minutes due to the realities in the delivery room at the time of birth, which is technically linked to the exact moment when we take out first breath.
As might be imagined, this process can take some time, yet it is very interesting and educational and valuable in itself, if it is done well. But it can also be regarded as the first step during an actual Reading session.
Whether or not the actual exact time of birth is ever deciphered, because it is a complex process to decipher, by including it a Reading, whether or not you are certain of your time of birth or whether or not it can be clearly deciphered, you will still get a lot of valuable insights and guidance.
I often do this as a matter of course and have many years of experience. I have also often given people without the actual time of birth with great results because I have learned to work without it. Yet, it remains ideal to have especially in the case of rendering precise dates when making predictions for the future.
It can cost anywhere from $50.00 to $100.00 and possibly more to obtain a birth record from Vital Statistics and sometimes even the Hospital (though I have known of some people who have obtained it from the hospital of their birth for free).
If you do not know your time of birth and cannot obtain it from family records or family memory, you may decide to make the effort to get it. You can do this by one of the taking one of the following steps:
1) Contact the actual hospital that you were born in. With computers, this information is becoming more readily available. If you are lucky, they will give it to you and for free.
*If they do not still have such information in their files, they will be able to offer you leads, the most obvious being Vital Statistics.
2) Contact Vital Statistics in the Capitol City of the province, state, county, etcetera where you were born.
3) Some people have found success by using a pendulum or through muscle testing. Most Astrologers will want to test the time provided from such methods.
