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 dates and times listed in the horoscope calendar correspond with wherever
you are. 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 timezone, 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.
