War Time

War Time

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

During World Wars I and II, many countries, including the United States, adopted daylight savings time on a year-round basis to provide a longer workday to meet the increased demands of wartime production. When horoscopes are cast for individuals born during war years, it is thus necessary to subtract one hour to obtain standard time. For natives of the United Kingdom born during WWII, the clocks were two hours ahead of standard time in the summer (this was termed double summer time).
