The old tropical debate
Dear Ernst and friends,
Thank you for these amazing courses. I am really learning so much.
I have a question that you may be sick of answering, so please feel free to refer me to a good video/course which explains. I am still on the beginner courses.
I've been using sidereal for years and I see you use tropical. Can you explain why that is? I tried the Sri Yukteswar ayanamsha but I think that is quite different from tropical calculations (didn't have much luck).
I suppose us humans don't like change and so there is some resistance, but I'm aways open to exploring new avenues and am humble enough to admit that you clearly know a lot more than me.
Many Vedic astrologers believe that the precession of the equinox needs to be accounted for. Is this incorrect?
Any thoughts would help.
hi NIck, you can read an article and listen to an audio on that at Microsoft Word - The Mystery of the Zodiac.doc (vedic-astrology.net)
Here is some other articles in addition to the Mystery of the Zodiac article.
I'm not sure if anyone has mentioned this yet, but Ernst also goes into this quite extensively in audio recording 9 and 10 of the old "Rasi Sutras" class.
