Sun Not in Gemini Today

4:00 p.m. CDT

   Monday 20 May at 4 p.m. CDT the Sun will cross into the constelltion of Gemini the Twins according to the pseudoscience of astrology. However in reality the Sun is within the constellation of Taurus the Bull due to circumstances beyond our control.
   The Earth wobbles on its axis and causes precession of the axes which in turn, among other things, causes the celestial grid system to shift moving the original signs of the zodiac at least one constellation to the west. In effect whatever your zodiacal sign may be according to astrology, you are really the constellation before it according to Astronomy and on this day, the real position of the Sun is still within Taurus the Bull.
