What If You Do Not Know Your Birth Time?

For the most complete results with astrology, you need your exact date, time, and place of birth. If you do not know your birth time, here are some suggestions for obtaining it:

  1. Check your birth certificate.
  2. If you do not have a copy of your birth certificate, you can order one from the state in which you were born, if you were born in the U.S., or from the appropriate government agency for your country if born elsewhere. Laws and recordkeeping for births vary widely, so you will need to research the correct procedure for your place of birth when seeking your birth certificate.
  3. If your birth certificate does not include the time of birth, that information still may be available in a more detailed birth certificate. When you place your order for your birth certificate, be sure to state that you want a copy that includes the TIME of birth.
  4. If you cannot obtain a birth certificate with time of birth, speak to your parents and other family members about when you were born. Even if they do not recall an exact time, take careful note of all information they provide in order to narrow the possible time frame for your time of birth.
  5. Check your baby book, birth announcement, baptism record, and other family documents.
  6. Get in touch with the hospital in which you were born. Often, hospital personnel record birth times; ask the staff how to obtain that information.

Once you have your correct birth time, simply enter it into the free birth chart calculator on our website, along with your birth date and place.
