Report about Bernd Singer's article
in Hamburger Hefte no. 178/2017, pp. 5-10
by Michael Feist, Hamburg
Uncertainties about birth-times are a common problem in astrological work. Birth times in quarter minutes or 10 minutes steps are often questioned. On the other hand times outside such steps are often considered correct, in particular if the birth time was found in a birth certificate. Is this the right way? Not always!
The birth time of the new US president Donald Trump is well documented. First Donald Trump published his birth time on an unofficial certificate of the Jamaica Hospital New York. One day later he published a copy of the official registration at the Bureau of Records, which shows the same birth time. Both documents were signed by the same attending physician Robert R. Eckert from Jamaica Hospital, New York City. Additional Donald Trump published two certifications of birth (without birth times), which were provided by Department of Health in April 1999 and May 2012.
At the "International Astrology Days", March 2015, Bangkok Thailand, Michael R. Feist presented his lecture about the history of the different Rules-Book Editions. In the meantime this presentation with more than 40 slides is available as a commented video at Youtube (29 min.)
Historical facts about the important reference book of Uranian Astrology are mentioned and more than 10 different Editions, official, un-official and translated Editions are shown or discussed.
The lecture will inform about three different periods:
1. the early collection of the Rules (1926-1927)
2. the (nearly forgotten) first period of the Rules-Book (1928-1941)
3. the second period we known today.
