A word about the birth hour - The Chinese timing system divides a day into 12 two hour segments. So if you are not sure about the exact birth hour, but within the same 2 hour segment (eg. 1-3 am, 3-5 am....), the result should be the same. If you don't know the hour, you still can plot the chart but the hour pillar will be missing.
