Dates Contradict

J McCaul Dec 22, 2013

We recently received this email (sanitized and with spelling Englishized) asking us to *explain* ourselves. Geez. We do hope that this individual also contacted the other sites to ask the same question.

"Auspicious team of, It is to complain that your web site predicts that Mercury shall enter in Sagittarius on 5th December 2013. However, other web sites predict that Mercury shall enter in Sagittarius on 20th December 2013. There might be some other contradictions as well. I have been visiting your web site regularly, but today I saw other web sites and I was confused. Please tell me where the root of this contradiction lies. For your convenience I am posting some links that contradict's transitions timing."

First things first. Moontracks uses Western based theory, also known as Geocentric Tropical Astrology. The sites that the querent referred us to are Geocentric Sidereal Astrology based. The astrology referred to were Vedic, Hindu, Jyotish, also known as Indian (i.e. from India) based theory.

There are plenty of other forms of astrology just to confuse the point. Chinese and Meso-American forms are just two of the many that don't use Sidereal or Tropical zodiac. Some other forms of astrology that use Tropical are Islamic, Hellenistic, Medieval and Tibetan.

All of the forms described above are geocentric (earth based). Just to add in some more confusion is the Heliocentric forms of astrology which are "Sun" centered.

Nutshell is, that not all astrology sites are alike and some will have different ingress dates based on the type of computations being used. If you have a question about which theory is being used, then ask, politely. Moontracks will continue to utilize Tropical. If our calculations are wrong based on the Tropical Ephemeris, then we will gladly accept the inquiry and fix the error if it is blatant.

2014 Calendar Updates

J McCaul Dec 7, 2013

The calendars are being updated for 2014. As they are updated, I will include the link below. For now, the first are as follows:

Moon Phases North and South

J McCaul Aug 18, 2013

The view of the moon changes once we cross over the earth's equator. The angle changes along with the directions of the waxing and waning. The majority of the moon phase images on Moon Tracks are driven by the north of the equator perspective. The waxing crescent starts from (our) right and waning completes to (our) left. South of the equator, that is reversed with the wax starting on the left and wane ends on the right.

The two images of the moon phases, side by side, gives us a better understanding of how the same moon phases are viewed from the north and south hemispheres.

A new southern hemisphere moon phase calendar has been added to Moon Tracks.

Ring of Fire Solar Eclipse

J McCaul Mar 22, 2013

The first of two solar eclipses in 2013 will be on May 9th/10th in the southern hemisphere near Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia and over the South Pacific. The eclipse will be annular, meaning that this will be like a total eclipse but with a ring of light peeking out around the moon.

Approximately two weeks before the solar eclipse will be the lunar eclipse over the eastern hemisphere on April 25, 2013. This eclipse will be a penumbral, meaning that it may not be too visible since it will be short and partial.

Lunar Calendar

The main focus of our astrology calendars is on the Moon; "La Luna." So we have a wide range of lunar calendars pertaining to the Moon's movement through the zodiac, the void of course (VOC) transit, the Moon's phases, and the important dates of New Moon, Full Moon and Eclipse events. The daily activities guide is a useful tool for planning through the month. All information is based on Tropical aka Western Astrology

Planet Calendars

The Moon's transit is not the only important information. We also provide dates concerning planetary ingress, retrograde motion, overall planetary influence charts, and older calendars so that you can always look back in time.

Ephemeris Tables

The day to day information about transits would not be complete without access to an ephemeris. All the ephemeris tables and charts on this site are created using GMT unless indicated otherwise on that page. Many individuals are curious about declination information. Follow the links on the declination page to read more about the purpose of declination charts.

Time Zones Adjustable

Although not an astrology calendar, per se, the Eclipses, Full Moon and New Moon information pages allow the guest to adjust the time of the event to his/her time zone. This adjustable function gives the most complete information for planning the day in accordance to the Moon and Eclipse events. Most of the Moon Tracks astrology calendar times/dates are "stationary" based on Pacific Standard Time (PST) or Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). However, under our Moon Calendar category, the three pages have a changeable option with the default Universal Time (UT).
