I try not to have many regrets.

I try to make it a habit when confronted with a past mistake to forgive myself and move on.  However I can’t get past that after my short labor with my third child at home, I completely forgot to check the exact time he was born.  The closest thing I have to an approximation of his birth time is the time stamp on a digital picture that my husband took of me nursing the baby after his birth.  It said, 4:28 am.

I know he wasn’t born at 4:28.  I gave birth in the bathroom on my hands and knees while my husband caught the baby behind me.  I went from the bathroom to the bed room.  I settled in, birthed the placenta and proceeded to nurse.  THEN I moved over to the other side of the bed.  THEN my husband took that picture.  The time from giving birth to taking that picture could’ve been anywhere from 2 minutes to 20 minutes as far as my current memory is concerned.

In order to see if I could pinpoint some of the planets I decided that I would create 4 birth charts with the following birth times: 3:45am, 4:00 am, 4:20 am, 4:28 am.  Fortunately the planets in the houses as well as the ascendant are consistent across all four charts.   The only things that change from chart to chart are the aspects.  I don’t know enough about aspects to see if I could narrow those down but at least I now know what his ascendant, moon, Venus and Mars are.  Sweet Coco has a sun in Taurus, ascendant in Pisces, Moon in Libra, Mercury in Aries, Venus in Taurus, Mars in Aquarius and Jupiter in Libra.  It’s an interesting mix of the four elements and a little heavier on the air.

While I’m excited that I could know as much as I do, I still kick myself for not knowing for certain.  HELLO, YOU ARE ALL ABOUT ASTROLOGY!  HOW COULD YOU FORGET TO NOTE YOUR CHILD’S BIRTH TIME?!
