Don’t worry! Your birth time can be recovered. And even if it’s not, you can still explore the main aspects of your chart.
Human Design Without Birth Time
Human Design is gaining massive popularity as it offers profound insights into your unique gifts, potential, and life mission.
Typically, generating an accurate Human Design chart requires your exact birth time. It was within that moment (as well as exactly three months before) that you were imprinted with the celestial information that determines your unique energetic blueprint.
But what if you don’t have this information?
Don’t worry — I got you!
Here are the 3 need-to-know tips to help uncover your Human Design without a birth time.

Human Design Without Birth Time Tip #1
Birth Time Rectification
Top right number in your free chart.
This involves investigating the correlation between personality traits, skills, and life events and astrological placement.
There are two options here:

Do a web search for an astrologer specializing in birth time rectification. And work together to determine your birth time.
Human Design Without Birth Time Tip #2
Speak to Relatives
Even narrowing down the time to morning or evening can make your journey to discovering your Human Design chart much simpler.
If you’re in touch with older relatives, ask them to recall the details of the moment they found out you were born.
Was it morning, mid-day, or night? Typically, they’ll remember if you were born in the middle of the night or during the day.
Contact a Government Records Office
Contact your state or province’s Office of Vital Records (aka Bureau of Vital Statistics) that manages birth documents.

This is the simplest route to take if you have a general idea of your birth time.
If you know the hour but not the minute, generate your chart for every 15-minute interval (i.e. 10:00am, 10:15am, 10:30am, 10:45am) and see if the differences in time change the Energy Type and/or Profile. These are the two aspects of your chart that you’ll be able to identify with most easily.
If either the Energy Type or Profile does change within that hour, head over to my How To Read Your Human Design Chart article to learn about their specific characteristics. Then determine what rings true for you.
You can still do this if you have no idea of your birth time. It’s just going to take more digging. You’ll need to pull a chart for every 1-2 hours of the day and see where things change up, then look up the differences and determine which aspects resonate the most.
What if Your Human Design Birth Time is Still Unknown?
While not having an exact birth time poses limitations in the accuracy of some of your chart details (like the arrows and variables), many insights can still be uncovered from an approximate chart.
The Energy Type may only change once during a 24-hour period. And there’s a massive amount of information you can gain from simply knowing that aspect of your chart.
If you’re confident in your birth hour but aren’t sure of the minute, I’m happy to dig in and see if there are any changes — we’ll likely still have plenty of transformative insight to explore. Just let me know in the booking form that your birth time isn’t exact.
