Sunday April 19th
at 4 am CDT, (10 UT), the Sun in its apparent eastward motion along the ecliptic
, moves out of the constellation Pisces the Fishes
and into the constellation of Aries the Ram
. 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.
