Sidereal Astrology and Astronomy

Earth's ~25,000-year Precessional Cycle

The cross in a circle, is not only a spiritual symbol, it is also the astronomical symbol for planet Earth. The cosmic significance of this symbol is that it marks the timing of a primary transition or turning in the natural evolutionary cycle of the Earth. Hidden within this symbol is a map referring to a unique occurrence of a specific geometric relationship between Earth, the solar system, and our galaxy--an astrophysical event occurring NOW, within Earth's ~25,000 year, precessional cycle. The precessional movement of Earth's pole governs the evolutionary unfoldment of consciousness on Earth. This portal of evolutionary change, occurring now in Earth's Precessional Cycle of the Precessional Cross, propels human consciousness into Galactic (Unified Field) Awareness. Earth's Precessional Cross WEB page has its own Table of Contents. Also see movies of Earth's precessional cross.

Sidereal Astrology: Earth's Precession and the Tropical and Sidereal Zodiaks

Learn about Earth's Precession; the relationship between the tropical and sidereal zodiacs; the astrological ages, the intercession of the Precessional Cross; measurement of the precessional rate, and introducing the Galactic Ayanamsa: Reckoning of the sidereal zodiak to the galactic axis of the Precessional Cross. This approach is based on the sacred geometry of astrophysical spheres nesting within spheres (Earth's precessional orientation in the solar system and our solar system's current location and orientation in the galaxy), rather than merely on star locations as seen from Earth.
