Given someone's birthday, we can infer some things about someone's life. This page provides the tool for finding someone's "Life Diary" and "Birthday" story.
The Life Diary is the annual flow of someone's life.
Use the following form to enter a birthday and the number of years that should be reported. The form defaults to a birthday of today.

The basis for understanding what is happening at someone's birth comes from thinking about life itself as a covenant. It was God himself who formed the child in the womb, and God himself holds all life in his hands. We return to him when we die. These Bible truths taken together form one of the most simple covenants of all. A covenant of life.
Generally speaking, covenants are measured in full years, and the natural time for reviewing our life covenant between God and ourselves is thus at full year intervals from our first day, what we call our birthday.
Because of the structure of the calendar God uses for measuring time, the simple recurring month/day pairs from someone's calendar day of birth do not reflect time measured as part of a covenant. Matching the month/day pair of our day of birth does not synchronize with our personal life covenant.
The Bible uses the term "Bond-Man" counting to indicate the way time is measured in a covenant. Simply stated, "Bond-Man" counting uses a new calendar, with an epoch started at the day the covenant comes into force. Years, months and days in that covenant are measured against that calendar.
The "AA" calendar is an example where Adam's first day is the starting Epoch. It continues as the system God uses for measuring time in Adam's race. Bond-Man counting is simply a personal application of this same system.
Notes On Leaps
People born on February 29 have difficulty with modern birthdays because their day only comes around once every 4 years.
The Bible's calendar has entire leap months, 30 days each, inserted into every Sabbath and Jubilee year. At first glance this seems to mean that many more people would be impacted by births on leaps and thus miss their birthday.
This turns out not to be a problem at all because this system uses "bound-man" counting. Even when someone is born on a leap month, their future birth dates are computed on a freshly starting calendar, because they are starting a fresh covenant, without need to reference the actual calendar months going by.
It is also the case that everyone observes their personal Sabbaths and Jubilees at their appointed Sabbath and Jubilee year points.
Notes on the term Covenant
The idea that under girds the dates calculated on this page is that everyone alive is joined to God in a simple covenant, a life covenant.
Notes on Month of Birth
Modern horoscopes also appear to be a fallen form or degeneration of a Biblical truth, that something about the time of birth has bearing on the nature of someone's life or life call. This is similar in concept to the idea that someone's name, if not changed by God himself, has bearing on the spiritual makeup of a person.
The Bible Month of the birth date itself may thus also explain how someone is gifted. Each month maps to a different Patriarch, Tribe, and Apostle. They also map to various other things including temple articles, commandments, Egyptian plagues and so on. Use the first date in the table above for determining the month of birth, and thus the tribal affiliation based on time.

Notes on Premature Birth
In our modern era there are technological miracles that can rescue children born at very early stages of development. The question comes up, does this impact their birth dates?
The idea is that the first day a child draws breath is the birth date. So the timing of the covenant is not impacted by a premature birth.
Notes On Calculation Complexity
This page provides a complete view of many years of birth dates given a starting birth date. The use of a computer appears to make this calculation dependent on the availability of a computer in order to calculate the dates.
The question thus arises, Isn't this too complex for observation in the pre-computer era?
The answer to this is no. Just as people today know their age even when it is not their birthday, the knowledge of someone's age determines how many days to their next birthday. Calculation on paper calendars is simple, and simple enough for most people to compute mentally if the calculation is done at their birthday and headed for the next birthday.
Because these intervals are always whole numbers of Biblical months, the day of the month is always the same for every birthday throughout someone's life. What varies each time is the month of the year.
