Sidereal and tropical are terms used to describe two different definitions of a year. In astrology, they refer to two different systems of ecliptic coordinates used to divide the ecliptic into twelve 'signs'. Each sign is divided into 30 degrees, making a total of 360 degrees.[1]

While sidereal systems of astrology define the signs relative to the apparent backwards movement of fixed stars of about 1 degree every 72 years from the perspective of the Earth, tropical systems fix the vernal point or vernal equinox (also known as the March equinox in the Northern hemisphere) to 0 degrees of Aries and define the rest of the zodiac from this point.[2][3][4] Sidereal astrology uses corrective systems known as ayanamsas (Sanskrit: 'ayana' 'movement' + 'aṃśa' 'component') to account for the precession of equinoxes, whereas tropical astrology does not use such measures.[3][5] This has caused the two systems, which were identical around 2,000 years ago, to drift apart over the centuries.[2][3][5]

Astrology

Ayanamsa systems used in Hindu astrology (also known as Vedic astrology) include the Lahiri ayanamsa and the Raman ayanamsa.[6] The Fagan-Bradley ayanamsa is an example of an ayanamsa system used in Western sidereal astrology.[6] As of 2020, sun signs calculated using the Sri Yukteswar ayanamsa were around 23 or degrees behind tropical sun signs.[5] Per these calculations, persons born between 12 March - 12 April, for instance, would have the sun sign of Pisces.[5] By contrast, persons born between March 21 - April 19 would have the sun sign of Aries per tropical calculations.[7]

Cyril Fagan, a Western sidereal astrologer, assumed the origin of the zodiac to be based on a major conjunction that occurred in 786 BC when the vernal equinox lay somewhere in mid-Aries[8] corresponding to a difference of some 39 degrees or days.

Precession of equinoxes, the changing position of the vernal equinox over the course of about 25,800 years. The yellow line is a section of the ecliptic, the apparent path the Sun appears to follow over the course of an Earth year. The purple line is the celestial equator, the projection of Earth's equator onto the celestial sphere. The point (red) where these two lines cross is the vernal equinox. In 1500 BCE, it was near the end of Aries; in 500 BCE, it was near the beginning of Aries; and in 1000 to 2500 CE Pisces.

Astronomic zodiac[edit]

A small number of sidereal astrologers do not take the astrological signs as an equal division of the ecliptic but define their signs based on the actual width of the individual constellations. They also include constellations that are disregarded by the traditional zodiac but are still in contact with the ecliptic.[citation needed]

Stephen Schmidt in 1970 introduced Astrology 14, a system with additional signs based on the constellations of Ophiuchus and Cetus.[citation needed]

New astrological dates

In 1995, Walter Berg introduced his 13-sign zodiac, which has the additional sign of Ophiuchus. Berg's system was well received in Japan after his book was translated by radio host Mizui Kumi (水井久美) in 1996.[citation needed]

For the purpose of determining the constellations in contact with the ecliptic, the constellation boundaries as defined by the International Astronomical Union in 1930 are used. For example, the Sun enters the IAU boundary of Aries on April 19 at the lower right corner, a position that is still rather closer to the 'body' of Pisces than of Aries. The IAU defined the constellation boundaries without consideration of astrological purposes.[citation needed]

The dates the Sun passes through the 13 astronomical constellations of the ecliptic are listed below, accurate to the year 2011. The dates will progress by an increment of one day every 70.5 years. The corresponding tropical and sidereal dates are given as well.
