How important is the time of birth in my natal chart.

Astrology Facts: Your birth time is extremly important to give accurately (within 4 minutes is ok within 1 minute is best) this is because the Moon, Ascendant, Midheaven, Imum Coeli, Descendant and conjunctions, oppositions, parallels and contra parallels to fixed stars move and change within this time frame. Aspects to these will also change sometimes dramaticly as in changing from applying to seperating. In saying this a birth chart is still useful if its within half an hour but you need to know what not to take seriously and what is acurate.

What does astrology have to do with the precession of the equinox.

Astrology Facts: The precession of the equinox is the movement of the fixed stars and constellations in relation to the tropical Aries ingress point which marks 0 degrees Aries in the Tropical Zodiac (Zodiac of Seasons) and takes 25,772 years to complete or move approximately 1 degree every 72 years. The tropical zodiac today is approximately 24 degrees ahead of the sidereal zodiac. So, if your sun is at 24 degrees Scorpio in a tropical chart then it would be about 0.00 Scorpio in a sidereal one.

What is the difference between tropical and sidereal astrology.

Astrology Facts: Tropical Astrology uses a zodiac that is based on the seasons of the year and the names of the signs are symbolic of that time of year. Tropical astrology relates more to the physical mundane world like weather for example. Sidereal astrology uses the actual constellations of the zodiac as they move they readjust there calculations to track the slowly moving zodiac, Sidereal astrology relates more to the spiritual and ethereal significations of astrology. Currently the two zodiacs are approximately 24 degrees apart. It is very important to know when reading horoscopes or ordering charts.

What makes a good astrologer?

Astrology Facts: Good astrologers should identify where they learnt astrology and there accreditation and affiliations. A good astrologer will be affiliated to a group or governing body this makes them accountable to such groups, which will have moral and ethical codes of conduct. And give you a contact to complain to if they behave poorly. Good astrologers will never repeatedly approach or hassle you to get readings, add on extra reading costs during a reading or claim to remove curses or the like, that is not an astrologer that is a fraud. A good astrologer will not be fatalistic, astrology can be precise in some instances but there is always an element of the unknown which should be respected. Good astrologers will ask you what you are wanting to know before a reading and be interested in detail’s this is not because they are gathering information to tell you later. It is because It aids in breaking down and ruling out certain areas of house, planet and sign significations as there are many and knowing the subject and its environment gives you a more accurate reading, withholding or staying quite will give you a worse one. Good astrologers put people first and treat them with respect they will also turn down some people if they believe its in the best interest of all parties, this to should be respected.

I dont know my birth time what is rectification and does it really work.

Astrology Facts: Rectification is when the astrologer starts with an approximate window of birth and then by looking at significant historical events in your life, like marriage, child births, family deaths, moving abroad etc. Then manipulates the chart until these events all occur in line with significations that match the events of that time. For rectification to work correctly the astrologer must rely on the clients accuracy and the timing of these events. While it can work very well in some cases it is not always fool proof and should be discussed with the astrologer to get an idea of its merits.
