According to the pseudoscience of astrology the Sun enters the constellation of Scorpio the Scorpion today, 23 October. When in fact the actual position of the Sun today is within the boundary of the constellation of Virgo the Harvest Maiden, as the banner graphic at the top of the page shows. This animated graphic shows the Sun’s apparent eastward motion along the ecliptic at 5-day intervals during October.
Read a little more about how astrology has the Sun incorrectly placed in a previous blog, and an another blog discussing the effects of precession.
