Along the ecliptic with the Sun from 10 August until 14 September

   According to the pseudoscience of astrology the Sun enters the constellation of Virgo the Harvest Maiden today, 22 August. When in fact the actual position of the Sun today is within the boundary of the constellation of Leo the Lion, as the banner graphic at the top of the page shows. Leo is the constellation to the right, or west from Virgo. The Sun in its apparent motion along the ecliptic spends about 35 days traversing Leo.
