What is Sidereal Astrology?

what-is-sidereal-astrology


True sidereal astrology makes use of the actual sizes of the constellations in the sky. To put it another way, the actual position of the planets at the moment of a person’s birth. Few people know that the most widely practiced astrology in the Western world (tropical astrology) aligns the constellations with the Earth’s seasons rather than the visible sky.

This results in a rising deviation of around one degree from the real position of the constellations every 72 years. Depending on which system is chosen, the two systems are currently 24 degrees apart. This can mean a discrepancy of up to two zodiac signs between the expected and observed placements.

As a result, your sun sign in sidereal astrology is likely different from that in tropical astrology.
