11 March 2014
Today Tuesday 11 March at 11 pm CDT, (12 March 4 UT), the Sun in its apparent eastward motion along the ecliptic, moves out of the constellation Aquarius the Water Bearer
and into the constellation of Pisces the Fishes
. This is the true or actual position of the Sun as opposed to the pseudoscience of astrology which usually has the astrological Sun one constellation ahead or east from the Astronomical Sun’s position.
Read a little more about how astrology has the Sun incorrectly placed in a previous blog
, and in another blog
discussing the effects of precession.
