Astrology of the 13 Signs of the Zodiac is a book which explains a new theory in this ancient field of study. It was prompted by the fact that Western Astrology has outlived its lifetime and its elements have been rendered obsolete by its cousin, the science of Astronomy. The precession of the equinoxes, that is, the movement of the point of intersection of the celestial equator by the ecliptic by 50.2” (seconds of a degree) each year, prompts corresponding discrepancies in the predictions of astrology, which move further and further away from reality with each passing year. Since 100 A.D., when Claudius Ptolemy wrote his Tetrabiblos, the zodiac constellations have moved approximately 29.2° across the sky, enough to ensure that the predictions of Western Astrology are completely misguided.
The Astrology of the 13 Signs of the Zodiac takes into account all available modern scientific information regarding the actual positions of the 13 Zodiac constellations and offers Astrology a way out. The only reasonable path now available to it is the acceptance of the 13 Signs of the Zodiac and the new theory, on the basis of which the Moon and the Sun are given their rightful place. In 13 Zodiac Sign Astrology, the Ascendant is represented by the position of the Moon, the celestial body which truly affects our lives, and not by some distant constellation. Lastly, sunspots, which have a well-documented impact on the Earth and its people, take on an important role in the New Astrology.
Only the Astrology of the 13 Signs of the Zodiac is firmly grounded in the sciences, and particularly in Astronomy. It recognizes the influence that the planets have over our lives through their interactions with the Sun and the disturbances they cause in its magnetic field, and the effect this has on the magnetic field of the Earth itself.
A physicist with an interest in astronomy may notice objects in the night sky not easily “visible” to the average person. Almost every time he observes the maps of the skies, he finds the horoscopes of Western Astrology amusing because they almost always place the planets in the wrong positions. On March 14th 2011, for example, the planet Mars is placed in the Constellation of Pisces, when it is actually in Aquarius. I know this well as a physicist and amateur astronomer because at night I can scan the starry sky and see for myself that the planet Mars (on March 14th 2011) is in Aquarius, contrary to the convictions of Western Astrology.
The same inaccuracy with regard to position applies not only to the other planets of our solar system, but also to the Sun and the Moon. By extension then, the constellations of the zodiac are also in positions different from those assigned to them by Western Astrology, and indeed a new zodiac constellation, Ophiuchus, has been identified in the path of the Sun on the ecliptic.
I used to be firmly opposed to Astrology, mainly because it annoyed me that everything it had to say was outdated; it used a faulty coordinate system and, most of all, it ran completely contrary to science. Astronomy, which should be the basic reference point for Astrology, has been forgotten by Western Astrologers and the subject matter of their work has tended to become a new religion.
In this book, we will create new foundations for Astrology using the discoveries of Astronomy, and examine some interesting new astrological concepts. For example, of particular interest is Percy Seymour’s theory regarding the influence of the planets on our lives, and this is developed in brief in the first chapter of the second part of the book. We will also take a look at the circle of the zodiac, putting aside our reservations and preconceived ideas. We will see that it is possible to put astrological prediction on a new footing. We will look at the truth of the New Zodiac.
Certainly most of you will have seen the predictions of traditional Astrology fall short. Most of them will say ten different things in order to get one right. You are not as they describe you, for the simple reason that they are using the wrong zodiac sign, the wrong planets and the wrong ascendant. Try it and you will see how different and how much closer to the truth the Astrology of the 13 Signs of the Zodiac is. At last, you will discover your true zodiac sign and your real horoscope. Above all, you will realize that your zodiac sign is demonstrably the right one based on scientific interpretation.
Follow us into a new scientific approach. On our journey we will attempt to give Astrology a firm foundation in Astronomy, and to redefine its much misunderstood principles.
The "Astrology of the 13 signs of the Zodiac"was a pleasant reading and an eye-opener. It explains,in layman's terms, the fallacies of traditional Astrology and adds a new perspective in Astrological readings by taking into account the influence of sun spots.A brilliant idea and one which makes sense as it is based on Astronomy.
The book ,in my opinion,is easy to read, has the right length and with the use of diagrams and pictures gets the main message across without getting into many technical details that might confuse the average reader.All in all an innovative approach to Astrology and a pleasant reading for those that want to discover its scientific roots.
Illuminating and Insightful
Astrology has always fascinated us as an ancient study, with the signs of the Zodiac shaping our lives and influencing our thoughts. Not only are we intrigued and led by our specific signs (connected to our birth date) but we are constantly aware of how our chosen traits, individuality and characteristics can alter and define our actions and ultimately mold our futures. This hand illustrated compact volume with its striking uniqueness will stand out on any bookshelf, being something quite original and fascinating. The introduction and prologue informs the reader on the science behind the planets within our galaxy and the fundamental workings of basic astrology that I found truly absorbing and insightful. Each section is spilt in accordance with the specific thirteen different signs of the zodiac, going into such depth and details as to enlighten you. Complete with in depth diagrams that are self explanatory and the most striking, eye-catching photographs of each planet this book is something to treasure and cherish. The use of diagrams and photographs, charts and comprehensive explanation bring the subject matter to life, in an enthralling way that makes for an exciting, gripping read. Unable to put this book down I was swept away by the author's accomplished, fluid writing style, which is a testament to how knowledgeable he is on such a vast subject.
This insightful read penetrates ones own feelings with such intensity and profundity as to amaze, enchant and mesmerize. Thought-provoking to the core this universal book will reach out to all kinds of reader, who enjoy something a little bit different that will make you ponder and wonder. I am most privileged to have read something of such high caliber hence I cannot enthuse enough about Vasilis Kanatas who has exceeded all expectations, surpassing initial expectations with a most remarkable book. I urge those readers who have not added this to their bookshelves to do so, as it is highly readable and most unequivocal.
