A birth chart for baby question with a difference!
I was just considering emailing you about my astro query when I saw your post about the miracle foal, Pickles. Recently a friend of mine was telling me about the arrival of her new nephew and I would like to draw up a natal chart for the baby as a gift. The problem is that the baby was stillborn, with no pulse, no breath, no brain activity.
The miracle part here is that after a pioneering treatment which involved drastically reducing his body temperature he began to show signs of life, started breathing on his own and gradually over the next few days came to life. He is now two months old and so far meeting all his milestones and smiling his socks off at everyone, which isn’t at all what was expected in the awful few hours after he was born when the entire family gathered having been told that he was stillborn and that there was no hope at all.
So, my question here is, how do I calculate a birth time for this precious boy? Do I go with the time of birth, which is hard given that he technically wasn’t alive? First heartbeat, first breath, first signs of brain activity? Any help here very much appreciated!
How To Do A Birth Chart For Baby Who Was Twice-Born?
This is so beautiful and profound. The classic birth time calculation is done when the first breath is drawn. But there is also an old astrologer’s axiom, that abide by, which is that you don’t do the chart (aside from a peek) until the person is aged seven. I am not sure why exactly. So as not to impose? But interestingly, in the case of those who arrive with such intense circumstances, there IS often an outer planet rising, Pluto in particular.
This is obviously a moving anecdote but the Uranian in me also loves hearing about “pioneering” treatments that work. Let’s have more of that, more funding for the sciences and genuinely society-environment aiding initiatives.
But yes, it is the first breath that is said to imprint the astral moment upon the soul. If you really want to get fancy about it, look at the Eclipse around the time of conception. Finally, two months ago, Jupiter was trine the South Node. This new baby could be a reincarnating Magi or great Sage!
