Western Sidereal Astrology sounds a bit overwhelming; but it really is quite straightforward.
We observe with our own eyes where the planets, the sun and moon are in the heavens, chart them down, and interpret the chart accordingly. It's just that simple.
Many people immediately react with some trepidation, because the sun sign usually changes. Most of the planetary signs will also change. People fear and mistrust change, especially when they have used the same astrology for hundreds of years and found that it works the way it was.
The changes in a sidereal chart reflect the cosmos as it is now; the new chart signs reflect you as you are now, not the you of hundreds of years ago, or the you who you were told you were by others long ago. We are in a New Age, that much is so obvious to everyone!! We need to accept the paradigm that we are a new improved version of ourselves!!
The changes are usually within 24 degrees of the tropical calculation. When you find out what your sidereal chart really says about the real you, it will be validating, liberating, and exhilarating!!
The heart of the whole question is, does lucky and determined, always optimistic and generous, describe who you really are inside?
