Reuniting Astrology with Nature

True Sidereal Astrology

Sidereal Astrology links us with the natural sky - as it really is.

Mastering the Zodiac uses the actual location and size of the constellations in the sky - also known as true sidereal astrology. You may have noticed that almost everything on Youtube and online uses western tropical astrology. This is the most popular system in the westernized world, particularly the United States and Europe. However, it does not use the real position of the constellations. Instead, it is based on a fixed astrological map of the stars as they were during approx. 285 AD. Tropical astrology was intended to match the stars with the vernal equinox. However, the stars are slowly changing location relative to the Earth, so today there is a variance of 24 degrees (almost a full zodiac sign) between the tropical system and the actual constellations in the sky.

Sidereal astrology has not yet received widespread popularity in the Western world. It has, however, always been used by ancient cultures such as the Egyptians, Persians, Vedics, and Mayans. We feel this is the most accurate form of astrology because it is grounded in what you can actually see taking place in the sky. For example, while tropical astrology might say that someone's Sun Sign is in Leo, if you looked to the sky at the time of their birth you would see that the Sun was in fact in the constellation Cancer. We believe in maintaining the link between ourselves and the natural world by viewing the stars as they truly are. (Find out your true sidereal signs here).
