Sun Not in Leo Today

22july  According to the pseudoscience of astrology the Sun enters the constellation of Leo the Lion on Tuesday 22 July at 5 pm CDT (22 UT). When in fact the actual position of the Sun today is within the boundaries of the constellation of Cancer the Crab. The Sun is still close to the western boundary of Cancer having just crossed that boundary a couple of days ago.

   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.
Caution: Objects viewed with an optical aid are further than they appear.
