#13 – East vs West; why isn’t my Sun in Aries?


Penny Farrow presents the differences between eastern and western approaches to astrology.  Topics include the “ayanamsha” feature of Jyotish which takes into account the precession of the equinox, which comes from the wobble of the earth on its axis.

We also discuss the differences between the tropical and sidereal zodiacs and how that results in the lack of alignment between the signs in the systems of western astrology and jyotisha.

Penny practices and teaches Jyotisha full-time having been trained primarily under the expert tutelage of Hart deFouw.  She is also a teacher and tutor for the American College of Vedic Astrology.
