MSNBC is reporting something I had been telling people for some time:  The zodiac is wrong.  People think the sun is in Aries from March 21 to April 20 but it is not!  It is actually about a month earlier.  Why astronomer Sanders?  (I do have a six inch Newtonian and I have done public observing nights in Hanover before) Here’s why:

The shift is caused by precession, the wobble in the Earth’s axis caused by the gravitational attraction of the moon to the Earth’s equator. Precession popped into the spotlight this week after Minnesota Planetarium Society board member Parke Kunkle told the Minneapolis Star-Tribune about the gap between the astrological and the astronomical view. The story spread around the Internet quickly, but it’s actually old news, Rao said.

It is old news.  It also is evidence that astrology has insufficient basis in fact to be trusted.  In fact, I could argue that the Resurrection has more evidence than astrology (such things as the Twelve Apostles were willing to die for their faith, the sudden rise of Christianity, the logical failure of alternatives such as the disciples took the body or the enemies of Jesus took it); I recommend my readers still clinging to the stars for answers seek the Bright and Morning Star (Jesus!  See Revelation 22:16) instead.  Try the BGEA website to find out more about receiving Jesus as Saviour and Lord!  (Again this is not an endorsement of this blog or this blog entry by the BGEA!)

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
