Cosmic Rebirth -The Aries Ingress – Equinox 20th March 2017

Here we are ready to bounce off into another astrological year when the Sun enters the first sign of the zodiac, Aries at the March Equinox, Spring in the North, Autumn in the South. Tropical astrologers use this alignment of the Sun crossing the equator to keep our zodiac aligned with the seasons, from which the zodiac originally developed, something we continually need to explain to the uninitiated that try to debase our craft, that our zodiac is no longer aligned with the stars, the constellations from which the zodiac signs developed much of their meaning from

Why there are 12 zodiac signs NOT 13.

The astronomical zodiac actually contains 13 star signs – the 12 that we’re familiar with plus another one, called Ophiuchus.
Ophiuchus was deliberately left out of the original zodiac, over 2000 years ago, even though the Sun clearly passes in front of it after passing in front of Scorpius (commonly known as Scorpio) and before reaching Sagittarius. The reason for this is not known, but it may be because ancient astrologers wanted to divide the 360 degree path of the Sun in a mathematically pleasing way – 12 equal parts, each of 30 degrees.
