Switching to Tropical
So I'd be really interested to hear some of your stories about using the Tropical Zodiac. I am thinking about making the shift and would love to hear how you got on? Have many of you found it much more accurate? Has anyone not had so much success? What is your experience?
P.s. is it possible to receive emails from this forum or do you just have to keep checking?
Tropical is the way to go!! Start with checking lajjitadi avasthas.
I think the most effective way to study this is to learn predictive techniques for very concrete material things like children, how big a house, color of car ect.
Can't debate whether or not someone has kids or not or how many or the color of a car.
When people debate whether there Mo is Gemini or Cancer, that is too subjective in my opinion.
We need objective things to really determine this.
While tropical has always been spot on with my chart, it's the Ketu/Rahu placement in signs that sold it for me without a single doubt and I never looked back. I've had a couple of readings from what I would call well-known sidereal astrologers and it felt vague enough that it could apply to anyone and predictions were completely off. If you want to dive analytically into it, and beyond what Ernst already teaches, Vic DiCara did a YouTube series as a response to Sam Geppi.
And, no, I never receive email notifications even though I've subscribed. So I've adopted the habit of checking in regularly. Not sure if others receive them though.
Hope this helps,
Vic Dicara has made several readings of the birth charts of some famous people - among them Adolf Hitler and Albert Einstein I remember - where he compares the outcome from a tropical vs a sidereal perspective (the Nakshatras always sidereal). I recommend looking at those. You find them on youtube.
Also very good lessons for chart reading in general.
