This week we are learning about the Ephemeris, the document that lists the Astrological position of all of the planets for each year.

Here's the link to the page I'm using:

Hiya, this week we are doing some Astronomy #sadface

Bear with me on this one, it will make sense at some point and you don't actually have to understand this to make a chart.... (coz the computer does it all for you!!)

However learning it does give you more Astronomical knowledge which is always a good thing!

This week is all about Planet Returns. 

This is when a planet goes back to be the same sign and degree that is was in when you were born.

In Michael's chart we are showing his chart with his Saturn return just coming up showing in green on the outside wheel..

..and the fact that he had Jupiter retrograde in his chart in the sign of 6 degrees of Cancer in the 11th house

As mentioned this is a great book that covers what you do really need to know: How and Why Astrology even started.

Here's the link to the book The Astrologers & Their Creed by Christopher McIntosh  https://amzn.to/2HCw7ok

Here's Dr McIntosh's Uni Page:

 https://humanities.exeter.ac.uk/history/staff/cmcintosh/

Illustration

This is the piccie from the book showing the ecliptic:Sun's apparent path (among the stars) through the year.

And the Equator : imaginary line around the Earth at equal distance to the Poles

Quote from page 24:

These points are what we would now call the solstices and the equinoxes. The diagram below explains these terms more clearly. The sphere is the Earth and the horizontal circle round it represents the equator (imagining that the Earth's axis is vertical). The tilted circle represents the ecliptic, that is the path that the Sun appears to trace around the Earth during the course of a year. The equinoxes are the points where the ecliptic crosses the equator, once in the spring and once in the autumn. These are marked as E1 and E2 (respectively). The solstices are the highest points of summer and winter and are shown as S1 and S2. If one lived in the northern hemisphere S1 would be the summer solstice and S2 the winter one, and vice-versa for the southern hemisphere.

This week I'm discussing Wikipedia which is massively allergic to any Astrology information...even worse when you read about Homeopathy...(Hypnotherapy isn't as badly treated thankfully)

Here's my article on women and Wikipedia

http://homeopathicpacifist.blogspot.co.uk/2013/11/wikipedia-editing-and-women.html

And just so you know, my stats are actually larger than I mentioned

There are now over 18,200 downloads to date 22-4-2018 so you're learning with quite a number of other Astrology interested folk!!
