Source Notes

Arno Müller, vol 3.

Gauquelin vol 2 has 3.30 am.

Sy Scholfield quotes her for 3pm while waxing lyrical about her birth in "Maria Gräfin von Linden: Erinnerungen der ersten Tübinger Studentin" by Maria Gräfin von Linden and ‎Gabriele Junginger (Attempto, 1991), p. 27: "Es war am 18.Juli 1869, an einem heißen, sonnigen Sonntagnachmittag um drei Uhr, als ich unter dem festlichen Glockengeläut des »Salve regina« zum Erdenbürger erwachte. Zum Tagesregenten hatte ich mir also die strahlende Sonne gewählt, zum Jahresregenten den kriegerischen Mars, und mein Ascendent war das achte Zeichen des Tierkreises, der Skorpion."

Abridged translation: It was on 18 July 1869, on a hot, sunny Sunday afternoon at three o'clock when I woke to the Earthlings under the festive peal of the "Salve regina" ... my Ascendent was the eighth sign of the zodiac, Scorpio.

3pm gives 21 Scorpio rising.
