I believe it is the ACTUAL path of the Sun.

Re: Random Thoughts, strictly Text

At the very least, we can't definitely say that the Earth is revolving around the Sun - this is inconsistent with the Bible.

Quote:
The relation of the two pictures [geocentricity and heliocentricity] is reduced to a mere coordinate transformation and it is the main tenet of the Einstein theory that any two ways of looking at the world which are related to each other by a coordinate transformation are entirely equivalent from a physical point of view.... Today we cannot say that the Copernican theory is 'right' and the Ptolemaic theory 'wrong' in any meaningful physical sense. - Fred Hoyle, Nicolaus Copernicus (London: Heinemann Educational Books Ltd., 1973), p. 78.
I sent you the Einstein & Infeld quote some week ago.

Geocentrically, the constellations are not an accurate frame of reference for planetary revolutions compared to the tropical zodiac. Ironically, the sidereal astrologers claim the opposite, even though astrology is inherently geocentric. The Sun rises in the same tropical place every year, but in a different sidereal place - it is impossible for it to rise in the same place with respect to the Earth in that case.

As I understand it, Traditionalistic "aspects" includes only planets, not Nodes. Is this correct?

I think you mean that only planets cast aspects - in that case they can aspect the nodes, but not the nodes them?

Yes. In Modernistic, that distinction isn't usually included.

Most of the parties I go to include vegans. Maybe all of them. I always make something vegan if I'm going to a potluck, because that's going the farthest.

When it comes to vegans, never encourage them by egging them on, tell them to "say cheese" when taking their picture, or milk vegan jokes for all they're worth.

Thatís true.

As do a number of mindful omnivores who oppose industrial farming practices, think conceptual veganism is harmful to nurturing an integrated ecosystem.

I believe that once the tropical Aquarian Age, under Uranian rulership, becomes dominant, at least some will be able to access the nutrients in the air we breathe. In the Hindu concept, it's called "Prana".

Pranarian!
