Go to an optometrist, which you should do every two years anyway. They can pick up many more diseases and conditions than just those of the eyes.
or if you have glasses, put them right in front of your eyes horizontally, straight up your arms, then turn it in 90 degrees(no matter which direction), if the object(it could be anything) squeezes or expands then you have astigmatism.
Unequal curves of the lens or cornea cause astigmatism.astigmatismastigmatismAstigmatism

Due to the irregular curvature of the cornea or lens surface in the eyeball, the focal point formed by the parallel rays of light entering the eye is not in one place. Appears to see things blurry. Causes of astigmatism 1.Unequal curvature 2.Deviation of optical center 3.The refractive index varies Symptoms of astigmatism 1.Decreased vision 2.Asthenopia 3.Compensation for head position and squinting

No, an astigmatism can not correct itself. This is because an astigmatism is caused by the shape of the eyeball.
