The Vital Skill of Backwards Astrology

Everyone knows that in order to create an accurate astrological chart and give a great interpretation of it, you need to have the exact location and time of birth. So it could be said that "forward astrology" consists of having an accurate birth time and place and creating a chart based on it. That chart indicates important information and even occurrences in a person's life. But what if you don't have a precise birth time? Many people don't have that information. An incorrect birth time can result in the wrong Ascendant, Midheaven, and more. What can you do?

The answer is to use the date of birth and approximate time (if known) as a starting point. Then, using known important events in the subject's life, adjust the chart until it indicates the proper timing for those events. This allows you to work backwards, because that chart will now give you the accurate birth time for a person.

This complex system is known as chart rectification. In the past, being able to do this took a lot of time and was considered astrological rocket science. Even today, with the power of computers, it's considered an advanced technique. But now, everything changes.

The Complete Book of Chart Rectification does the seemingly impossible: using modern astrological techniques, this groundbreaking book makes chart rectification easy to understand and easy to do.

The Technique of Rectification
This is the first new book on rectification in fifteen years, and the only book to describe a step-by-step method that uses the latest astrological techniques. Carol A. Tebbs has taken a complex topic and broken it down into practical and workable pieces. It uses fifty-five tables and thirty-four figures, as well as examples of famous people such as Elizabeth Taylor, Johnny Cash and Jimmy Swaggart. Using this method, you will be able to easily perform accurate rectifications, whether you use a computer or work by hand. You'll learn how to:

• Find the adjusted calculation date
• Calculate secondary progressions
• Calculate solar arc directions
• Time months and years with outer transits
• Do specialized work using Solar Fire, Kepler, and Win*Star computer applications
• Find a consistent pattern where astrological indicators correspond with life events
• Link dramatic life events with aspect "hooks" to narrow birth time parameters
• Find solutions to a wide variety of astrological challenges

The book begins describing the system, then gives you some relatively simple examples of how to use it. It continues with more complex examples, allowing you to understand the full power of this system.

You may be thinking, "Everyone knows the time they were born." Over the past few decades, this has been true for most areas of the U.S., but people can lose their birth certificates or come from countries where the exact time of birth is not considered important. The Complete Book of Chart Rectification is a book for intermediate to advanced or professional astrologers, so having the ability to find out the exact birth time for anyone born anywhere can help you in your practice. Some astrologers consider a rectified chart to be even more accurate than times recorded on a birth certificate. Now chart rectification can be a routine part of any astrologer's practice. Tebbs is a well-known astrology teacher and has thoroughly tested this method in her practice and with students.

The Complete Book of Chart Rectification is a true reference book. It's going to be part of the training of any professional astrologer, so you should get your copy now and start working with it. It's also ideal as a textbook for teachers of astrology who want to start training students in this powerful technique.

Chart rectification is a skill that will set you apart in a crowded field of astrologers, and reveal to all how you are an expert in the field. The Complete Book of Chart Rectification is the best resource on this skill. It is the best way to learn the technique and incorporate it in your work.

In my new book, How to Survive Mercury Retrograde (And Venus & Mars, Too), I emphasize that a retrograde planet can be used productively. A planet does not have to be moving in direct motion to get positive results. The backward motion of a planet through an astrological sign gets us to be more reflective and does, to some degree, slow down... read this article
