Sun Not in Aquarius

view-from-earth-not-in-aquarius   According to the pseudoscience of astrology the Sun enters the constellation of Aquarius the Water Bearer Tuesday January 20th at 10 UT (4 am CST. When in fact the actual position of the Sun today is within the boundary of the constellation of Capricornus the Sea Goat, as this graphic shows. Actually the Sun had just entered Capricornus 8 hours earlier.

   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.
