Astrology of the Thirteen Signs of the Zodiac is a book which explains a new theory in this ancient field of study.It was prompted by the fact that Western Astrology has outlived its lifetime and its elements have been rendered obsolete by its cousin, the science of Astronomy.The precession of the equinoxes, that is, the movement of the point of intersection of the celestial equator by the ecliptic by 50.2” (seconds of a degree) each year, prompts corresponding discrepancies in the predictions of astrology, which move further and further away from reality with each passing year.Since 100 A.D., when Claudius Ptolemy wrote his Tetrabiblos, the zodiac constellations have moved approximately 29.2° across the sky, enough to ensure that the predictions of Western Astrology are completely misguided.
The Astrology of the 13 Signs of the Zodiac takes into account all available modern scientific information regarding the actual positions of the 13 Zodiac constellations and offers Astrology a way out.The only reasonable path now available to it is the acceptance of the 13 Signs of the Zodiac and the new theory, on the basis of which the Moon and the Sun are given their rightful place.In 13 Zodiac Sign Astrology, the Ascendant is represented by the position of the Moon, the celestial body which truly affects our lives, and not by some distant constellation.Lastly, sunspots, which have a well-documented impact on the Earth and its people, take on an important role in the New Astrology.
Only the Astrology of the 13 Signs of the Zodiac is firmly grounded in the sciences, and particularly in Astronomy.It recognizes the influence that the planets have over our lives through their interactions with the Sun and the disturbances they cause in its magnetic field, and the effect this has on the magnetic field of the Earth itself.

Astrology of the 13 Signs of the Zodiac offers a new theory of Western Astrology designed to make it compatible with the science of Astronomy. (The new sign is Ophiuchus; it comes between Scorpio and Sagittarius). Chapters outline a perspective of the Moon - a celestial body that is much closer to us and has a greater effect on our daily lives than faraway constellations - as the Ascendant. Sunspots also play a greater role in this new astrological method, designed to correct imbalances such as those that come simply from the constellations slowly shifting position in the sky ever since ancient times. A wealth of black-and-white illustrations complement this methodical walkthrough of a new way for gleaning metaphysical wisdom from the night sky.

The "Astrology of the 13 signs of the Zodiac"was a pleasant reading and an eye-opener. It explains,in layman's terms, the fallacies of traditional Astrology and adds a new perspective in Astrological readings by taking into account the influence of sun spots.A brilliant idea and one which makes sense as it is based on Astronomy.
The book ,in my opinion,is easy to read, has the right length and with the use of diagrams and pictures gets the main message across without getting into many technical details that might confuse the average reader.All in all an innovative approach to Astrology and a pleasant reading for those that want to discover its scientific roots.

I was given this book as a gift. Very impressive! I wasn't an avid follower of astrology, just here and there, but I found your book enlightening. The science is explained in a way that even I understood what was going on. Surely it's obvious there's a 13th star sign. Are you coming out with any more books on this subject? I'll keep my eyes open.
