Time Zone and Reference Place |
Are you in a different time zone to the one you were born in? If so, you might want to enter your present location as a place of reference, so that the date and the exact time correspond with wherever you are. To do this, click on 'Change Reference Place' at the bottom of the Daily Horoscope. This is NOT very important, please read on!
Minimal importance of reference place
Transits depend only on where you are born (because this influences your Ascendant and houses). They do NOT depend on where you live. The place where you live has no importance whatsoever for any horoscope reading on this website.
The only exception is of minimal impact. The time when
a transit occurs is fixed in Universal Time (aka Greenwich Time). It is the
time when a moving planet crosses a particular degree of the zodiac, where your
birth planet (or house cusps) is considered to have left a mark. This time is
the same, from wherever on the earth you may be watching! Only the local clock
time for this moment however will be different, depending on the time zone,
in which you live. The 'reference place' at the bottom of the daily horoscope
page is used to determine, in which time zone these transit times should be
printed. If you know about time zones, you can however do the conversion from
one to the other just as well in your head, as you often do when you watch a
nation-wide or world-wide TV network.
