Research completed: star-mapped constellation boundaries

Post by michael »

Dear Astrology Friends,

I finally completed my research on the most accurate actual star-mapped constellation boundaries, and I've attached a spreadsheet in PDF format for everyone to look at. My intention is to share my project findings with all. And, if someone can benefit, then I say, "Great!". I've been working on this project for at least the last four years. My Bachelor's degree is in agriculture, and for many years I've wanted to find out "the truth" about planting crops by the moon, similar to the Farmer's Almanac. This lead me to the discourses made by Rudolph Steiner (Germany), and the information that he passed on concerning planting by the moon. Then, around 2010, I found out about the biodynamic farming calendar, put together by Sherry Wildfeuer. She, along with her peers, researched the work that others had already done in regards to the actual constellation boundaries. This work really shifted my whole way of viewing astrology. The other paradigm shift for me came when I acknowledged that she incorporated sidereal calculations into her calendar moon positions instead of tropical calculations.

Once I started using these two amendments with my own personal natal chart [ 1) Progression of the Equinoxes, or sidereal calculations, and 2) actual star-mapped constellation boundaries (instead of the 12 signs x 30 degrees conformities we are all used to)], then I started to see greater accuracy of timings and correlations with transits and progressions in my natal chart. In other words, when I went back to look at major crisis times in my past, I could see more clearly the correlations of the planetary aspects that were occurring at that time with respect to what was happening with me in my life.

For the data that I'm submitting, I have used the dowsing techniques that I have mastered to hone and refine the data to a greater level of accuracy than the data used in Ms. Wildfeuer's biodynamic farming calendar (although my data compares very closely to it!). In my testing, I always use the planet Mars as a testing measurement instrument because it's movement is neither too fast nor too slow. Also, all sidereal work for this project is based upon Lahiri Ayanamsa, which has been determined to be at 24° 09' (approx) during January 2021. Lahiri Ayanamsa has provided me with the most accurate correlations with my own natal chart. Please feel free to research and test the accuracy of the data that I'm presenting using your own natal chart. I will soon be sharing this info on the more reputable astrological forums online. I welcome any questions or clarifications, and I can be reached at fsorganizing@gmail.com. Thanks for your consideration!

Mark, thanks for taking time to look this over. I already emailed these researched findings to Brian Keats, and he basically dismissed any star-mapped constellation boundaries as being "legit". He prefers to use the 30' x 12 boundaries at this time. I don't blame him, honestly, because they are challenging to manage when using a coded software astrology program. :-)

The very reason for me posting this is because there ARE a handful of people on the planet who are very gifted with dowsing techniques. Dowsing techniques harmonize well with biodynamic farming. Over the years, I have followed the activities of the American Society of Dowsers. Many of the long-standing members have long resumes of the successful well-finding projects that they have done. Some of these gifted people can not only locate successful water veins, but also can tell their clients accurately how many liters of water per minute a particular well will provide.

Oh well, I feel that I'm getting too ego-centered by attempting to defend my research. However, I do always say that the best way to determine the quality and integrity of the work is to test it. It's easy to criticize someone's work. But true respect comes when one is willing to test the work to see if there is merit in it.
