    Contraction & Expansion of the Zodiac:
    Astrolonomical vs. Astrological


    Astrologers today are working with a dating scheme that has been outdated for over two millenia--and which was never particularly accurate to begin with. The traditional dates for the positions of the Zodiac constellations are simply incorrect. But modern astrologers don't actually observe the sky the way ancient astrologers did. They simply go by ancient charts based on the position of the Sun in the stars over 2000 years ago. As the following table indicates, the traditional dates for the Sun's position in the Zodiac are not only out of sync with the actual sky, but they are artificially separated into 30-degree segments to make each sign last an average of 30 days.


    TRADITIONAL ASTROLOGICAL DATES VS ACTUAL ASTRONOMICAL DATES *Astrological - (Aries 21 Mar - 19 Apr (30 day cycle)) Actual Astronomical - (Aries 19 Apr - 13 May (25 day cycle))*


    ASR's domain is Duat - the Egyptian Underworld.  He is a protective funerary god, guarding the west of the Nile where most of the cemeteries are located, and where the sun descended into the duat.  As ruler of the underworld, ASR ensures that the souls of the wicked and undesirable do not pass into his realm.  He is both a god of fertility and the embodiment of the dead and resurrected king. Once the ruler of Egypt died he became AST (who then gave orders to the living). Seker is Asar's title when he is resurrected and he takes his place in the Netherworld as the king.  In this aspect he presides over the judgement of the heart of the aspirant. His union with Aset symbolises the achievement of striving for spiritual salvation or resurrection The union with Nebethet symbolises bondage, suffering and the cycles of birth and death, known as reincarnation.

    THE FUNKY RHYTHM CONNECTION w DONALD GRAMMER

    in Radio

            Funky beats, a rhythm that will keep you moving and meditating.  One of the better CONNECTIONS you're find on the Internet.  Donald Grammer cuts, blends, mixes jazz fusion, like no one else.  Music is the universal language.  When you have a great song on, it can mood you, and entice.  Close your eyes and hear new concepts and realisms with notes jumping off the graph.  Half notes, quarter notes, hip hop, R&B, fused with jazz and a spectrum of melody you won't forget.  Donald Grammer and a little bit of me, Tolliver.
