Tropical astrology is a form of astrology that is based on a zodiac whose points of position are the tropics. Tropical astrology is based on the theory that early astrologers distinguished the star signs in accordance with the time of year in which the sun ascends in them. Tropical Astrology is considered as the early astrological division of the heavens. However since then, the whole Zodiac has moved almost a whole sign as a result of the Precession, so whoever was a long time ago born a Libra is now almost certainly born a Virgo – with the characteristics and traits changes that come with it. Tropical Astrology does not take this into account. Tropical Astrology continuously keeps on using the old tables – which have nothing to do with where the planets actually are in the heavens.
Sidereal astrology makes use of the real constellation wherein the sun is positioned at the time of natal as its starting point; tropical astrology makes use of a 30-degree division of the zodiac as its starting point. Tropical astrology is the most widely accepted variety and it appoints its interpretations based on the time of the year, while in general do not take into account the arrangement of the sun and constellations relative to one another. Sidereal astrology is utilized by a minority of astrologers and establishes its interpretations on the constellations near the sun at the time of an individual’s birth.
Sidereal Astrology recognizes the setback in relation with the changing signs, but burrows itself deeper into the irrational; the more sidereal astrologers strive to understand the real division of the heavens, the more they are isolating themselves from the old perception or beliefs. Sidereal astrologers can not claim to assemble on ancient wisdom, other than changing the signs and characteristics over time. In turn, they are creating the entire notion of Astrology illogical. The true astronomical signs are just several days off compared to the Sidereal method by now – which means that even Sidereal Astrology is not making use of the of the precise and accurate star signs.
As acknowledged by a number of astrologers, the information verifies the assumption that there is a relationship connecting the heavenly bodies and human occurrences. There are connections overly harmonious to be mere chance connecting the astrological signs and such matters as characteristic, traits, sentiments and feelings and of course, the destiny or fate of us humans.
