RECTIFICATION OF BIRTH TIME

When we talk about the rectification of birth time, we should
first understand what do we mean by birth time. There are lot
of misconceptions about the time that should be considered
as the birth time. Different astrological texts have difference
of opinion on birth time and some of the opinions mentioned
in the various astrological texts about the moment of birth are
as under:-
(a) It is the time when head of the child comes out of the
mother’s womb.
(b) It is the time when newly born falls on the ground.
(c) It is the time when child has an independent existence i.e.
when umbilical cord in cut.
(d) It is the time when child utters the first cry.
The opinions from (a) to (c) given above do not appear to be
convincing as we know about breech child, in almost all the
cases now a days child never falls on the ground and there
are still born children who do not cry unless they are slapped.
The opinion at (c) above appears to be convincing as till
umbilical cord is cut, child breathes through mother and is
integral part of mother. However the moment of birth should
be taken as the time when umbilical cord is cut and child takes
first breath for all astrological purposes. (d) crying of the child
indicates independent existence.
Numbers of theories have been advanced by different
astrologers regarding rectification of birth time. When powerful
Lagna, Sun, Mars and Jupiter occupy odd signs or Navamas,
there is a male birth. If Lagna and these planets occupy even
235
signs and Navamas, they give rise to female birth. Also if Moon,
Mercury and Venus are in even signs, a female is born.
However this theory cannot be applied universally and also
there is confusion when some of these planets occupy odd
signs and some even signs.
Generally, the following theories can be adopted for checking
the correctness of birth time:-
1. Lagna and Navamsa both cannot be even in Male and
odd for female.
2. Dwadasamsa of Navamsa has to be odd for male and
even for female.

3. From the time of sun – rise (LMT) to the given LMT of
birth, note Ghati and Vighati that have elapsed. Convert
this duration of time into Vighatis, multiply by 4 and divide
by 9. The remainder counted from Aswini, Magha and
Moola should give constellation at the time of birth.
Example: - If Isht kal is 10 Ghati and 25 Vighatis. This
time in Vighatis, will be (10 x 60+25) = 625 Vighatis, this
multiplied by 4 and divided by 9 i.e. 625 x 4/9 =2500/9
gives remainder as 7. Therefore birth constellation should
either be Punarvasu, Visakha or Poorva – Bhadrapada.
237
4. Convert Isht kala into Vighatis, multiply it by 2, add 5 to
the result if Lagna sign is movable, 10 if fixed and 15 if
dual. Multiply result by 4 and divide by 9 and count the
remainder from Aswini, Magha or Moola to get the birth
constellation.
5. Convert Isht kala into vighatis and divide by 225. Divide
the remainder in group of 15, 30, 45, 60 and 75. The
male and female birth will be as under:-
If remainder is 0 – 15 Male birth
“ 16 – 45 Female “
“ 46 – 90 Male “
“ 91 – 150 Female “
“ 151 – 225 Male “
6. Multiply Isht kal into Vighatis by 3 and divide by 7. The
remainder counted from Sunday in order of weak days must
agree with day of birth.
NADI RECTIFICATION
We are aware that for any physiological, psychological and
biological changes in the universe five elements responsible
are – Prithvi (Earth), Jala (Water), Agni (light and heat), Vayu
(Wind) and Akash (Ether). Any day these five elements follow
one another in a regular sequence. The sex of a person is
determined by the element ruling at the time of birth.
238
The five elements repeat after every 90 minutes on any day.
Thus 16 such cyclical repetitions take place in one day. The
duration of each element is fixed. The sequence and duration
of elements is as under:-
Prithvi (6 mnts.), Jal (12 mnts.), Agni (18 mnts.), Vayu (24
mnts.), and Akash (30 mnts.)
Out of these elements Jala and Vayu are feminine and others
are masculine.
The first element ruling on each week day, it’s duration and
sex can be understood from the following table:-
Week day Element ruling at Lord of element
beginning of day Duration Sex
Sunday Agni Sun 18 minutes Male
Monday Jal Moon 12 “ Female
Tuesday Agni Mars 18 “ Male
Wednesday Prithivi Mercury 6 “ Male
Thursday Akash Jupiter 30 “ Male
Friday Jal Venus 12 “ Female
Saturday Vayu Saturn 24 “ Female
This Method is widely used for rectification of birth time and
results obtained are quite accurate. However best results can
be obtained if Prithvi and Vayu elements are considered as
neutral i.e. there is possibility of both male and female birth
during these elements.

10. SUB – PLANETS
Subplanets are nonluminous. These are devoid of splendour.
These subplanets are malefic is nature and cause affliction.
They are not normally visible in the sky. However if they are
visible, they are considered inauspicious and cause lot of
damage.
The main five subplanets are as under:-
1. DHOOMA - also known as Pucchhal Tara.
2. VYATIPATA - falling of star from sky.
3. PARIVESHA - Moves around Sun or Moon.
4. CHAPA - Indradhanush which is visible after rains.
5. UPKETU - also known as Dhoomketu
The affliction of main planets with sub planets is not considered
good and main planet in such circumstances starts giving malefic
effects, e.g. if Sun is afflicted by any of the sub-planet, it may
cause loss of sons. If ascendant is afflicted, it may give short
life to native. Similarly if Moon is afflicted, it may cause mental
afflictions.
The longitude of above sub – planets are determined from the
following formulae:-
Sun’s Longitude + 1330 20’ (4s 130 20’)= Longitude of
DHOOMA
12 signs (3600) – long of DHOOMA = Long. of VYATIPATA
Long of VYATIPATA + 6 signs(1800) = Long. of
PARVESHA
240
12 SIGNS (3600) – Long’ of PARIVESHA = Long. of
CHAPA
Long of CHAPA + 16040’ = Long. of UPKETU
Long of UPKETU + 300 = Long. of SUN
Example:-
Let sun’s longitude given is 6 s5 040’. Find out longitude of all
the sub – planets.
Long of Sun 6s 50 40’
(+) 4 s 130 20’
DHOOMA 10 s 190 0’
12 s 0 0’
(-) 10 s 190 0’
VYATIPATA 1 s 110 0’
+ 6 s
PARIVESHA 7 s 110 0’
12 s - -
(-) 7 s 110 0’
CHAPA 4 s 190 0’
+ 160 40’
UPKETU 5 s 50 40’
+ 1 s
SUN 6 s 50 40’
Apart from above subplanets, some more subplanets are
considered in Astrology. If we divide duration of a day i.e.
241
from sunrise to sunset in 8 equal parts, first seven parts are
ruled by planets, which are lords of weekdays. 8th part is
without any lord. The first part is allotted to week day lord
and other portions follow the order of week day lords. Similarly
if duration of night is divided into 8 equal parts, the first portion
is ruled by the planet ruling fifth day week lord counted from
day in question. 8th part in the case is also without any lord.
Out of the portion of various planets during day and night, the
portions of Moon and Venus have been ignored and portions
of remaining five planets are also considered as subplanets as
under:-
SUN’S Portion - KALA
MAR’ S “ - MRITYU
MERCURY’ S “ - ARDHPRAHAR
JUPITER’ S “ - YAMGHANTAKA
SATURN’ S “ - GULIKA or MANDI
The above subplanets are considered as sons of main planets
being lord of different signs as under:-
KALA - son of Sun - has Capricorn as own sign
MRITYU - son of Mars - “ Scorpio “
ARDHAPRAHAR - son of Mercury- “ Gemini “
YAMGHANTAKA - son of Jupiter - “ Sagittarius “
GULIKA - son of Saturn - “ Aquarius “
Out of all the above subplanets, Gulika is the dreaded most in
causing evil. About Gulika, it is said that if lord of the house
242
occupied by it be in Kendra or Trikona with reference to
Lagna, it bestows upon the native plenty of riches and fame.
Also this subplanet becomes practically powerless when either
the lord of the day of birth or lord of Lagna is very strongly
placed in the horoscope.
The degree ascending at the time of start of above portion of
planets will be the longitude of corresponding sub – planet at
the given place.
