Frequently asked questions

Daily Horoscope > Legend

  1. What does "weak, transient influence" mean?

    The influence is only slight and temporary. It usually lasts a few hours or a day at the most.

  2. What is the meaning of the "ingress" and "lunar phase" information in the mundane section of the Daily Horoscope?

    The Daily Horoscope page also lists some astronomical events like the Sun's ingress into a new sign or the lunar phases. These events are not personal, and have no personal meaning for you. This is why they are listed under the tab "mundane".

  3. What do the asterisks ( *, ** or *** ) mean?

    Particularly important transits are indicated by one, two or three asterisks next to the title of the transit selected for the day. One asterisk (*) means that the transit is more important than most, two (**) indicate an important transit, three (***) show that the transit is a major astrological event.

  4. What do the letters in brackets behind the information on eclipses mean?

    t  -  "total" eclipse of the Moon / Sun
    p -  "partial" eclipse of the Moon / Sun
    u -  "penumbra" (Lunar) eclipse, i.e. the Moon enters the half-shadow cone of the Earth but not the core shadow. The "u" was chosen because of the Latin word "umbra" which means "shadow". It is hard to notice such an eclipse.
    a -  "annular" (Solar) eclipse (ring-formed): the Moon is too far away for its disk to completely cover the Solar disk. At the peak time of the eclipse, a ring of the Sun's disk is still visible.

    Most astrologers who work with eclipses do not take their visible quality into account, neither do they consider whether someone is in the path of visibility of a Solar eclipse or far away. All they are concerned with is whether an eclipse has taken place or not.

  5. What does "Moon at natal angle" mean?

    It means that on that particular day, the angle between transiting Sun and transiting Moon is exactly the same as the angle formed by your natal Sun and natal Moon. For example, if your natal Sun and Moon form a 92° waxing square, the symbol for "Moon at natal angle" will turn up in the Daily Horoscope on the day the transiting Sun and Moon form a 92° waxing square.
    This information is used in CosmoBiology, a theory that claims that this is the most fertile phase in a woman's monthly cycle. Some women use this theory for birth control. (see also FAQ -> Free Horoscopes -> Charts -> Special charts)
