This is doesn't really refer to a current astrological occurance, but rather an astrological phenomenon in general that occurs every day. I didn't know where else to post this. I consider these to be important questions, for my own learning and that of other's.
My first question is, Why is it, that at the exact time of sunrise, the Sun is almost never precisely conjoined with the Ascendant, and why is it that at noon the Sun is almost never exactly conjoined with the midheaven? Logically, I would assume that at sunrise the Sun should always be precisely conjoined the Ascendant yet this is not the case.
I have cast charts when it has been obviously fully light outside, yet the Sun is beneath the horizon in the chart. In such a case, is the chart diurnal or nocturnal. Do we go with what is visibly obvious, and consider the chart diurnal, as we can see that it is daylight, or do we consider the chart nocturnal according to the chart which shows the Sun beneath the horizon? Ther latter option would fly in the face of common sense wouldn't it?
I hope that someone can provide an answer to this question, as it has bugged me since I first got into astrology, and I haven't yet found an answer.
